Question Quest completion list macro

hey!

I have a macro to check quest completions and prints them in colored yes/no:
Code:
/run local t={"OrdLake",33201,"Steam",33202,"StuCent",33198,"StuSW",33199,"StuW",33200,"T1G1",33216,"T1G2",33217}for i=1,#t-1,2 do print(t[i],IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[i+1])and "\124cff00ff00Completed" or "\124cffff0000Not completed")end
The result looks like this:
Code:
OrdLake Not completed
Steam Completed
StuCent Completed
StuSW Not completed
T1G1 Not completed
T1G2 Completed
I'm looking for a way to edit this to remove the manually set name parts and make the macro to print the exact quest names automatically. I don't want to set the quest names into the macro because it takes a lot of space and my goal is to print out as many quests as possible.

Would you please help me to fix this macro for this purpose?

Unfortunately, the only way to get a quest name from its ID is to set it to a tooltip and then "scrape" the tooltip for the information, ideally storing it in a lookup table so it will only require scraping once. Not something you can really do in a macro, unfortunately.

well, that explains the lack of replies :F
Thank you for the information, Torhal!

Do you have any other suggestion / idea how can I print the completion of 10-15 quests at once by a macro? (without using superdupermacro-like addons)

Ok, I'm going for 1,2,3,4, etc to save space in macro, but it needs a title, could you help inserting a single text print to the first row with the least macro-space wasting, please?

I'm talking about something like this:
Code:
TITLE
1. Not completed
2. Completed
3. Completed
4. Not completed
5. Not completed
6. Completed

Code:
/run print("Title Text"); local t={"1",33201,"2",33202,"3",33198,"4",33199,"5",33200,"6",33216,"7",33217}for i=1,#t-1,2 do print(t[i],IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[i+1])and "\124cff00ff00Completed" or "\124cffff0000Not completed")end
I mean how/where to place the title line text into the macro to avoid the duplication of "print" command. This maybe too basic for you, but I still don't get it.

Would you help me please?

You cannot run the for loop iteration within the print function, so you need one print at the beginning, as you've done, and another within the loop (that prints whatever the next loop element is).

Since you are just using numbers instead of names you can shorten that up a bit more with:
Code:
/run local p,t=print,{33201,33202,33198,33199,33200,33216,33217}p("Title Text")for i=1,#t do p(i,IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[i])and"\124cff00ff00Completed"or"\124cffff0000Not completed")end
With all the quest ids so close numerically you can shrink it even more:
Code:
/run local p,t=print,{3,4,0,1,2,18,19}p("Title Text")for i=1,#t do p(i,IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(33198+t[i])and"\124cff00ff00Completed"or"\124cffff0000Not completed")end

Perhaps we can continue with the compacting and reduce the character count a few more:

Code:
/run local p,t=print,{3,4,0,1,2,18,19}p("Title Text")for i=1,#t do p(i,"\124cff"..(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(33198+t[i])and"00ff00"or"ff0000Not ").."Completed")end
