What The Aura?
Version: 1.0.0
by: Ferous [More]
BETA QUALITY

What is this?

This is also my 'Learn-to-write-AddOns' Addon.

This is based off of Presence Check, which I have permission to use Jelly's code.

What is it again?

Basically reminds you what aura you are in if you auto-hide your aura bar, like me. I forget to have devotion aura on, so this serves me well.

Pretty simple, just shows the icon relative to what aura you are in, and shows a message in the UI error frame (for poop and giggles).

What are the settings?

For now, you can't lock the position, but it does remember your position you want it at, and you can move it with the left mouse button.

Typing ingame /wta or /whattheaura will hide it.

Why doesn't it do anything else?

I am still working on it and trying to teach myself more Lua so I can add a right click menu to choose aura's, and also trying to learn some other stuff along the way so I will update this AddOn as I add and learn more things ( i.e. Druids, Hunters, DKs, Warriors)

Be patient with me! I am still learning

Questions?

Refer to the comments tab above for questions, concerns, and/or comments

Jelly for code

Are there any issues?

I forgot to mention that for some reason, it doesn't load properly upon entering the world so it is just a blank square, but when you change aura's it appears. But when you /reload your interface, it loads properly so I have to figure that out.

Locking the frame

Hey, stumpled upon your AddOn, and thought I might be able to help with the locking problem you've got :P

I too have made a "Learning-.lua-AddOn-project" AddOn. Mine is a bit more simple:
  • It creates a frame that shows the targets gender
  • Makes the frame moveable
  • And last but not least, it has slash commands to lock it

I could give you a quick guide to making slash commands
PM me if you need it

FYI, the reason it doesn't work when logging in is probably that your event handler ignores all events other than "UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED" but it needs to update in response to "PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD" -- remove that check and I bet it will work. Also, the 3 "addon:" lines at the bottom of your .lua file do nothing and you can remove them since your .xml file and OnLoad function take care of those things anyway.

I added that on the front page, yes it can be moved. For now, it can't be resized. I have to figure that out lol. I'm still a noob here

Looks hawt! Can you move the frame and/or resize it?
