Close Frame if you escape/click outside of it

Hey all,

I'm coding an addon that shows a frame with secure buttons on it that let you cast poisons on those weapons. The idea is you right click the respective weapon in the player frame and the frame appears. Currently the frame will open when I right click the weapon as expected, however, I can't figure out how to hide it when I click outside of the frame or hit escape.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I found table.insert(UISpecialFrames, yourframehere) to allow escape, but still wanted to find a way to close when you clicked outside of the frame if at all possible.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Lua Code:
  1. -- The form should use SecureHandlerShowHideTemplate
  2. -- so we can handle the key binding when it's shown
  3. MyForm = CreateFrame("Frame", "MyForm", UIParent, "SecureHandlerShowHideTemplate")
  4. MyForm:Hide()
  5. MyForm:SetPoint("CENTER")
  6. MyForm:SetSize(100, 100)
  7. MyForm:SetBackdrop{
  8.     edgeFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\WHITE8x8",
  9.     edgeSize = 1,
  10. }
  11.  
  12. -- Create a secure button for key binding
  13. MyToggle = CreateFrame("CheckButton", "MyFormToggle", MyForm, "SecureActionButtonTemplate")
  14. MyToggle:Hide()
  15.  
  16. SecureHandlerSetFrameRef(MyForm, "toggle", MyToggle)
  17. SecureHandlerExecute(MyForm, [[toggle = self:GetFrameRef("toggle")]])
  18.  
  19. SecureHandlerSetFrameRef(MyToggle, "form", MyForm)
  20. SecureHandlerExecute(MyToggle, [[form = self:GetFrameRef("form")]])
  21.  
  22. -- Bind the BUTTON1(left-mouse) to the button when form is shown
  23. MyForm:SetAttribute("_onshow", [[
  24.     toggle:SetBindingClick(true, "BUTTON1", "MyFormToggle", "LeftButton")
  25. ]])
  26.  
  27. -- Left-click trigger the toggle to hide the form and clear the binding
  28. MyToggle:SetAttribute("type", "toggle")
  29. MyToggle:SetAttribute("_toggle", [[print(123) form:Hide() self:ClearBinding("BUTTON1")]])
  30.  
  31. -- Test
  32. MyForm:Show()

To close with the escape key

Code:
tinsert(UISpecialFrames, "Name of your frame")

I'm sorry about that. I think I clicked back after submitting, got tied up in something, and then thought I didn't submit the first time.

No worries. They both had replies, so I merged instead of deleting the first one.
