SetFont - new parameter: textType

I received such a LUA error:

bad argument #1 to 'SetFont' (Usage: self:SetFont(textType, fontFile, height, flags))

Typically, the syntax for this function is:

self:SetFont(fontFile, height, [flags])

What data does textType take?

A guess is that SetFont might have changed accept either a table only ie. GameFontNormal OR font, size, flags.

Mind you, it IS just a guess. I can't find anywhere Blizz. uses anything other than font, size, flags

I found mentions of textType in the SimpleHTML documentation from a beta export:

Lua Code:
  1. {
  2.     Name = "GetFont",
  3.     Type = "Function",
  4.  
  5.     Arguments =
  6.     {
  7.         { Name = "textType", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  8.     },
  9.  
  10.     Returns =
  11.     {
  12.         { Name = "fontFile", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  13.         { Name = "height", Type = "number", Nilable = false },
  14.         { Name = "flags", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  15.     },
  16. },
  17. {
  18.     Name = "GetFontObject",
  19.     Type = "Function",
  20.  
  21.     Arguments =
  22.     {
  23.         { Name = "textType", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  24.     },
  25.  
  26.     Returns =
  27.     {
  28.         { Name = "font", Type = "table", Nilable = false },
  29.     },
  30. },
  31. {
  32.     Name = "SetFont",
  33.     Type = "Function",
  34.  
  35.     Arguments =
  36.     {
  37.         { Name = "textType", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  38.         { Name = "fontFile", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  39.         { Name = "height", Type = "number", Nilable = false },
  40.         { Name = "flags", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  41.     },
  42. },
  43. {
  44.     Name = "SetFontObject",
  45.     Type = "Function",
  46.  
  47.     Arguments =
  48.     {
  49.         { Name = "textType", Type = "string", Nilable = false },
  50.         { Name = "font", Type = "table", Nilable = false },
  51.     },
  52. },

It's a mystery. You have:

itemTexFrame.lua
Lua Code:
  1. ITEM_TEXT_FONTS = {
  2.     ["ParchmentLarge"] = {
  3.         ["P"]  = QuestFont,
  4.         ["H1"] = Fancy48Font,
  5.         ["H2"] = Game20Font,
  6.         ["H3"] = Fancy32Font
  7.     },
  8.     ["default"] = {
  9.         ["P"]  = QuestFont,
  10.         ["H1"] = QuestFont,
  11.         ["H2"] = QuestFont,
  12.         ["H3"] = QuestFont
  13.     }
  14. };

Lua Code:
  1. local fontTable = ITEM_TEXT_FONTS[material];
  2. if(fontTable == nil) then
  3.     fontTable = ITEM_TEXT_FONTS["default"];
  4. end
  5. for tag, font in pairs(fontTable) do
  6.     ItemTextPageText:SetFontObject(tag, font);
  7. end

But that signifies a change to SetFontObject so maybe something along the same lines

Thank Frizzlemizz, textType "P" is the solution for me.
But in this 4 parameter syntax, all 4 parameters must be used.

TextObject:SetFont(textType, fontFile, height, flags)
In normal 3-parameter syntax, the last parameter is optional.

TextObject:SetFont(fontFile, height, [flags])
Since I'm only changing the font file, my program now looks like this:

local a1, a2, a3 = ItemTextPageText:GetFont("P");
ItemTextPageText:SetFont("P", BT_Font, a2, a3);
