Ui XML Frames

I've created a list of the structures you can use to create your XML Files.
It's not 100% Complete yet, but it's a start.



The Page just lists all the possible Structures and Elements/Attributes it can use.

More detailed information will follow

http://fara.webeddie.com/ui/


Short overview: all <Name /> fields are normally optional, if you click them it will jump to the area where that element is defined.
Most parameters are optional as well. if the contain values ,example: start="0" ,then that is meant as their default value. (false=default bool)
If they contain a name such as int,float,string,etc. it's meant they have no default ,but need the value to be in that format.


I created it by checking UI.xsd of WoW by hand ,and made a more clear structure in XML out of it, so you can better read it to understand it.

This information is more for the Advanced Addon Programmer ,i will add more help for the Beginners later on.

In the meantime make sure to check:

http://www.wowwiki.com/XML_User_Interface

to understand the basics.

Note: I have done it on my own webspace, because that way i could do the automatic syntax coloring.

Feel free to include it in your own Sites/Tutorials ,if you wish.
