IsInGroup not working

Can someone give me an advice how can i run this code only if player are in group?

local smallcircle5 = CreateFrame("Frame", "SmallCircleTopCenter", self)
smallcircle5:SetFrameLevel(self.Health:GetFrameLevel() + 5)
local smallcircle5texture = smallcircle5:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK")
smallcircle5texture:SetTexture(m.textures.smallcircle)
smallcircle5texture:SetPoint('CENTER', self, 46, 35)
smallcircle5texture:SetSize(26,26)
smallcircle5texture:SetTexCoord(0, 1, 0, 1)
I tried like if IsInGroup('player') then

CODE

end

But it doesen't take a effect, until i reload my ui.

IsInGroup works and the only reason why it's only working for you on a reload is you need to register the event PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD / GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE and once either of those are fired then you check to see if you're in a group.

Code:
local smallcircle5 = CreateFrame("Frame", "SmallCircleTopCenter")
smallcircle5:SetFrameLevel(self.Health:GetFrameLevel() + 5)

local smallcircle5texture = smallcircle5:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK")
smallcircle5texture:SetTexture(m.textures.smallcircle)
smallcircle5texture:SetPoint('CENTER', self, 46, 35)
smallcircle5texture:SetSize(26, 26)
smallcircle5texture:SetTexCoord(0, 1, 0, 1)
smallcircle5:SetAlpha(0)

smallcircle5:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")
smallcircle5:RegisterEvent("GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE")
smallcircle5:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, ...)

   if IsInGroup() then
      self:SetAlpha(1)
   else
      self:SetAlpha(0)
   end

end)

nice, it works now,

local smallcircle5 = CreateFrame("Frame", "SmallCircleTopCenter", self)
smallcircle5:RegisterEvent("GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE")

smallcircle5:SetFrameLevel(self.Health:GetFrameLevel() + 5)
local smallcircle5texture = smallcircle5:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK")

smallcircle5:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, ...)
if IsInGroup(unit) then
smallcircle5texture:SetTexture(m.textures.smallcircle)
end
end)
smallcircle5texture:SetPoint('CENTER', self, 46, 35)
smallcircle5texture:SetSize(26,26)
smallcircle5texture:SetTexCoord(0, 1, 0, 1)
But the texture stays, even if im not in group anymore.

Why are you doing your own thing when you were given code that already should do everything right?

You're setting the texture for when you are in a group, but not doing anything to remove it once you're not in a group anymore. So it stays.

Also, I recommend you look up some general guidelines on code quality and readability, and at the least, use [highlight="lua"] tags with proper indentation when adding code snippets to posts.

texture:Show and Hide will not work in combat. Change your coding to this...

Code:
local smallcircle5 = CreateFrame("Frame", "SmallCircleTopCenter")
smallcircle5:SetFrameLevel(self.Health:GetFrameLevel() + 5)

local smallcircle5texture = smallcircle5:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK")
smallcircle5texture:SetTexture(nil)
smallcircle5texture:SetPoint('CENTER', self, 46, 35)
smallcircle5texture:SetSize(26, 26)
smallcircle5texture:SetTexCoord(0, 1, 0, 1)

smallcircle5:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")
smallcircle5:RegisterEvent("GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE")
smallcircle5:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, ...)

   if IsInGroup() then
      smallcircle5texture:SetTexture(m.textures.smallcircle)
   else
      smallcircle5texture:SetTexture(nil)
   end

end)

If you're trying to add role, etc. icons onto your unit frames you can just use the built-in ones for oUF.

https://github.com/oUF-wow/oUF/blob/...rindicator.lua

Code:
    -- Position and size
    local LeaderIndicator = self:CreateTexture(nil, 'OVERLAY')
    LeaderIndicator:SetSize(16, 16)
    LeaderIndicator:SetPoint('BOTTOM', self, 'TOP')

    -- Register it with oUF
    self.LeaderIndicator = LeaderIndicator

Go up 1 tree to: https://github.com/oUF-wow/oUF/tree/master/elements and there's the other built-in elements for oUF.

IsInGroup does not accept units. It is only to check if you are in a group. The only argument it has is to check realm groups or instance groups.

https://wow.gamepedia.com/API_IsInGroup

If it doesn't matter what kind of group you are in, just IsInGroup() is fine.

Yea, have already found that code, but it need to be anchored to a circle frame.

So? You can anchor it to your circle frame just by changing the self in the setpoint to the name of your circle frame.

I did it already, but the texture are not showing, i think it's a layering problem. Need somehow to set framelevel



Anyone know how do i change the strata level of the elements in ouf?

And if there any way for smoothing text positioning?
