Autocast animated overlay trouble
 
I am in need of a way to use or mimic the default autocast animated overlay (like on pet buttons). My code is in only lua, no xml. I don't have anything related to autocast in my code at the moment, every attempt resulted in various errors (over 40 attempts (with lfg "eye", autocast shine, autocast sparkles, both the bits to get them to work on my buttons and the animation parts themselves modified to directly take a button)so a lot of errors) and I ended up removing it so get on with the rest of the addon. Either a script that copies the look of the animation that I can plug my buttons into (and how to use is) or info on what I data I need (and what format to put it in) so that my buttons will play nice with blizzards default animation would be appreciated. I've puzzled out the rest of the addon I'm working on (new to lua, only started about 2-3 weeks ago), but this just doesn't seem to want to work.

Take a look at InlineAura. I'm sure there might be some useful tidbits in there for you.

Hm, autocast? The "ants"?

I'll take a look at inline aura. And yes, the "ants" is what I'm trying to get working.

I've implemented the 'ants' animation and the glow via single textures in http://www.wowinterface.com/download...4-BABBars.html as using an animation was not possible.

Don't know if it helps, but it looks like this: (the textures are attached to this post)

Lua Code:
  1. --adding textures for ants/glow
  2. local tGlow = _G[Button:GetName().."Glow"] or Button:CreateTexture(Button:GetName().."Glow","OVERLAY")
  3. tGlow:SetTexture("Interface\\AddOns\\BAB\\textures\\IconAlertGlow.tga")
  4. tGlow:ClearAllPoints()
  5. tGlow:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", Button, "TOPLEFT")
  6. tGlow:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT", Button, "BOTTOMRIGHT")
  7. tGlow:SetDrawLayer("OVERLAY", 2)
  8. tGlow:Hide()
  9.  
  10. local tAnts = _G[Button:GetName().."Ants"] or Button:CreateTexture(Button:GetName().."Ants","OVERLAY")
  11. tAnts:SetTexture("Interface\\AddOns\\BAB\\textures\\IconAlertAnts1.tga")
  12. tAnts:ClearAllPoints()
  13. tAnts:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", Button, "TOPLEFT")
  14. tAnts:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT", Button, "BOTTOMRIGHT")
  15. tAnts:SetDrawLayer("OVERLAY", 2)
  16. tAnts:Hide()
  17.  
  18.  
  19. --updating the ants if _G[Button:GetName().."Ants"] is visible
  20. do
  21.     local f = CreateFrame("Frame", "BABMain", UIParent)
  22.     f:SetScript("OnUpdate", function(...)
  23.       for btni, btnv in pairs(Buttons) do
  24.         if _G[btnv:GetName().."Ants"] then
  25.             local tAnts = _G[btnv:GetName().."Ants"]
  26.             if tAnts:IsVisible() then
  27.                 if not tAnts.Step then
  28.                     tAnts.Step = 1
  29.                     tAnts.StepTime = GetTime()
  30.                 end
  31.                 if GetTime() - tAnts.StepTime > 0.025 then
  32.                      tAnts.Step = tAnts.Step + 1
  33.                      if tAnts.Step > 22 then
  34.                          tAnts.Step = 1
  35.                      end
  36.                      tAnts:SetTexture("Interface\\AddOns\\BAB\\textures\\IconAlertAnts"..tAnts.Step..".tga")
  37.                      tAnts.StepTime = GetTime()
  38.                 end
  39.             end
  40.         end            
  41.       end
  42.     end)
  43. end

Thanks Duugu, one question though. How do I get it to work? I tried adding it, but its giving me the one of the same errors (so far, if I keep pushing I could probably get a lot more errors from it) as the blizz animation does "bad argument #1 to 'pairs" (table expected, got nil)" for this line "for btni, btnv in pairs(buttons) do". I don't have a clue what I'm missing except that apparently the code is wanting data I'm not giving it. For some reason I can't even get generalized code to work and have to hard code everything for every button, so a simple 9 button bar is almost 2k lines long and fairly messy.

Duugu 09-04-14 12:13 PM

You need to provide the right data to the code.

For the first two snippets the variable 'Button' has to be a reference to the button frame object you would like to act on. Like
Lua Code:
  1. local Button = _G["ActionButton1"] --just an example ... use your actual button frame(s)
before them.

The last snippet expects a table 'Buttons' containing references to all of your button frames. Like
Lua Code:
  1. local Buttons =
  2. {
  3. _G["ActionButton1"], _G["ActionButton2"], _G["ActionButton3"] -- again, just an example
  4. }

Please keep in mind, that these code parts are generalized quick and dirty copies from of my addons code. Do not expect them to work out of the box. :)

If you need help with your code, then the best way would be to show what you've done so far.

Not getting errors anymore, but also not getting the animation either.

Here's the code for this piece of my addon, there is another file with a lookup table for pet spell names, texture, spell IDs, and such that I can post if really needed. Like I said, it's really long and messy though.

As it could happen that the button should be visible without the ants animation you'll have to show/hide the ants texture according to the actual status of you button. Like
Lua Code:
  1. _G[buttonGrowl:GetName().."Ants"]:Show()
somewhere in your code.

Thought I'd post back and give an update. I got your code to work, but it wasn't quite what I was after (close but not quite there since blizzard updated it from the original texture it seems). After hours of more poking around in various addons and bits of code I finally managed to get it to show on a lua only button in a file with just the button (a ways from being in an actual addon, but it's progress). I thought I'd share what I managed to get incase anyone else has similar trouble or would like a clean working script to use as an example.

Its just a simple button (nothing assigned for when clicked or anything), has the on mouseover and on pushed textures working (using a backdrop was the easiest way I found to keep the on push image from over-riding the buttons icon), and most importantly the current autocast animation that is in game. the autocast is set to show when the button is checked and hide when unchecked. the color of the glow can be adjusted by changing the values on the SHINE_ variables, and the size of the "sparkles" can be changed with the multiplier at the bottom of the code.

Code:

local isMyButtonClicked = false
local buttonPet1_icon = {  bgFile = "Interface\\Icons\\ability_hunter_beastcall",    edgeFile = "",  tile = false,  tileSize = 30,}
local buttonPet1 = CreateFrame("CheckButton", "PetButtonCall1", UIParent, "SecureActionButtonTemplate,AutoCastShineTemplate")
local buttonPet1Shine = CreateFrame("CheckButton", "PetButtonCall1Shine", UIParent, "SecureActionButtonTemplate,AutoCastShineTemplate")
buttonPet1:SetSize(30,30)
buttonPet1:SetPoint("CENTER", 0, 0)
buttonPet1:Show()
buttonPet1:SetBackdrop(buttonPet1_icon)
buttonPet1:SetFrameStrata("LOW")
buttonPet1Shine:SetFrameStrata("Medium")

buttonPet1:SetHighlightTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\ButtonHilight-Square", add)
buttonPet1:SetPushedTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\ui-quickslot-depress", add)

local SHINE_R = .95;
local SHINE_G = .95;
local SHINE_B = .32;

buttonPet1Shine:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button)
        if isMyButtonClicked==false then
                buttonPet1:SetChecked(true)
                isMyButtonClicked=true
                AutoCastShine_AutoCastStart(self, SHINE_R, SHINE_G, SHINE_B)
        else
                buttonPet1:SetChecked(false)
                isMyButtonClicked=false
                AutoCastShine_AutoCastStop(self)
