Can't read GameTooltip right text

This script should print the information reported in the GameTooltip created in this way. Specifically, it should print

—› Rank 5
—› 30 yd range

Lua Code:
  1. local f = CreateFrame("GameTooltip", "MyGameTooltip", UIParent, "GameTooltipTemplate")
  2. f:SetOwner(UIParent, "ANCHOR_NONE")
  3. f:SetSpellByID(27217) -- Drain Soul
  4. local n = 1
  5. while _G["MyGameTooltipTextRight"..n]:GetText() do
  6.    local text = _G["MyGameTooltipTextRight"..n]:GetText()
  7.    print(text)
  8.    n = n + 1
  9. end

Wrong FontString (for Wrath)
Lua Code:
  1. while _G["MyGameTooltipTextLeft"..n]:GetText() do
  2.     print(n, "L:", _G["MyGameTooltipTextLeft"..n]:GetText())
  3.     n = n + 1
  4. end

Range is in MyGameTooltipTextRight2 (there is no MyGameTooltipTextRight1:GetText() so a loop for that would fail at the first test)

There is no rank

Show the tooltip at ANCHOR_CURSOR to see what it says.

Solved, thank you!

Lua Code:
  1. local f = CreateFrame("GameTooltip", "MyGameTooltip", UIParent, "GameTooltipTemplate")
  2. f:SetOwner(UIParent, "ANCHOR_NONE")
  3. f:SetSpellByID(27217) -- Drain Soul
  4. local n = 2 --start from 2
  5. while _G["MyGameTooltipTextRight"..n]:GetText() do
  6.    local text = _G["MyGameTooltipTextRight"..n]:GetText()
  7.    print(text)
  8.    n = n + 1
  9. end

Depending on what you want to do but adjusting the start number seems to defeat the purpose of the loop

either just:
Lua Code:
  1. local text = MyGameTooltipTextRight2:GetText()
  2. if text then
  3.     print(text)
  4. end

or, if there might be something you want in position 1 or position x, check all TextRights:
Lua Code:
  1. local n = 1 --start from 1
  2. while _G["MyGameTooltipTextRight"..n] do
  3.    local text = _G["MyGameTooltipTextRight"..n]:GetText()
  4.    if text then
  5.        print(n, text)
  6.    end
  7.    n = n + 1
  8. end
