Lua not working in fight class editor


Recommended Posts

Hey all
I tried to make an in-game frame using lua just the way i would with lua in-game in any other way (macros etc).
So in the "spellname" area in the creator i wrote in my code, and i set it to "not spell, is lua script"
Ending up with this:

      <SpellName>if not FrameCreated then
  FrameCreated = true

    StatusFrame = CreateFrame("Frame")
      StatusFrame:ClearAllPoints()
    StatusFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\WHITE8X8",})
    StatusFrame:SetBackdropColor(0,0,0,.4)
    StatusFrame:SetHeight(60)
    StatusFrame:SetWidth(122)
    StatusFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT",ChatFrame1, 0,90)
	StatusFrame:SetMovable(true)
	StatusFrame:EnableMouse(true)
	StatusFrame:RegisterForDrag("LeftButton")
	StatusFrame:SetScript("OnDragStart", frame.StartMoving)
	StatusFrame:SetScript("OnDragStop", frame.StopMovingOrSizing)
    StatusFrame:Show()
end</SpellName>


Is there any reason why this does not work?

Note: I did try removing the

StatusFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\WHITE8X8",})


In case it just couldn't find the BgFile, no difference. :) Also tried writing it like this:
 

StatusFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = [[Interface\Buttons\WHITE8X8]],})

Any help would be appreciated cheers! :)

 

Edit: I even tried changing it to use lua script as a condition and then just leave the spellname empty liket his:
 

<LuaScript>if not FrameCreated then
	StatusFrame=CreateFrame("Frame");
	StatusFrame:ClearAllPoints();
	StatusFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\WHITE8X8",});
	StatusFrame:SetBackdropColor(0,0,0,.4);
	StatusFrame:SetHeight(60);
	StatusFrame:SetWidth(122);
	StatusFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT",ChatFrame1, 0,90);
	StatusFrame:SetMovable(true);
	StatusFrame:EnableMouse(true);
	StatusFrame:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton');
	StatusFrame:SetScript('OnDragStart', frame.StartMoving);
	StatusFrame:SetScript('OnDragStop', frame.StopMovingOrSizing);
	FrameCreated = true
end</LuaScript>

After hours and hours of doing this and that, i finally figured the error lies within wrobot. Apparently it dones't translate \\ into /
So as soon as i changed

StatusFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\WHITE8X8",});

into

StatusFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface/Buttons/WHITE8X8",});

Everything worked.

Not sure if you saw my answer on Discord, but I recommend getting Bugsack and Buggrabber, you'll still see the Lua errors of injected code that way.
That usually can put you on the right path.

I saw your post, and i have both. Thing is, it's not lua errors, it's a 'compile' bug from wrobot to lua output @ wow. Which means the errors you get in-game say nothing about the error. An error that i would get as an example would be you are missing an \ in front of n (It would never be this specific.) Where when reading my code i'd be like "I have a \ in front of n, what are you talking about?". So most of the errors i have been encountering, has been because i'm using advanced lua instead of just small snippets. So it's not as thoroughly tested and fixed. :)

Why should wrobot translate \\ to / ? :blink:

"translate" was just a rough term. In lua \\ = backslash but for some reason when you use wrobot \\ turns into \ wen it spits out the code. Just like when you wanna do \n for newline you have to do \\n :)

Maybe is time for some education here.:P https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h21280bw.aspx

 

Yes and it clearly states: \\ represents backslash in the post you just posted.

Anyway it's beside the point i made it work. You guys should rather focus on trying to help me with the other issues i have :P
