Help please
I have this macro to toggle Auto-Loot on and off. It works fine except the Print message always says Off never On when I use the macro.

/run SetCVar("autoLootDefault",1-GetCVar("autoLootDefault")) print(("AutoLoot is %s"):format((GetCVar("autoLootDefault")==1) and "on" or "off"))

/run local v = GetCVarBool("autoLootDefault") SetCVar("autoLootDefault", v and 0 or 1) print(format("AutoLoot is now %s.", v and "off" or "on"))
The problem in your macro is that you're calling GetCVar immediately after SetCVar, at which point it's probably still returning the old value. My revised version will cache the current value, and use that for both the setting and the printing parts.

Works perfectly! Thank you very much for helping me with this.

I have another question, is there a way to have this print to MiksScrollingBattleText or maybe as a system message?

Change print to say UIErrorsFrame:AddMessage
