focustarget targetting event (solved)

So trying to add the !beautycase border to the focus target frame and I figured

"Well if I just run FocusFrameToTPortraitModel:CreateBorder(8,1,1,1) all I'm gonna get is

"Message: Interface\AddOns\BobUI\modules\unitframes.lua:647: attempt to index global 'FocusFrameToTPortraitModel' (a nil value)"

So I should probably make a script looking like this

Lua Code:
  1. local w = CreateFrame("Frame")
  2. w:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_FOCUS_CHANGED")
  3. function w:OnEvent(event, ...)
  4.   event == "PLAYER_FOCUS_CHANGED" then
  5.   FocusFrameToTPortraitModel:CreateBorder(8,1,1,1)
  6. end
  7. w:SetScript("OnEvent", w.OnEvent)

So add that stuff to my addon (whoa unitframes btw) and low and behold I still get

"Message: Interface\AddOns\BobUI\modules\unitframes.lua:647: attempt to index global 'FocusFrameToTPortraitModel' (a nil value)"

when I add a focus something for the first time, but anytime after I do that it works perfectly

So i figured "I must be using the wrong event"

but alas "PLAYER_FOCUS_CHANGED" the only event I found pertaining to the focus target

and now I'm all like "I need more helpz" so i dialed my buddies here at wowinterface and made a thread

FocusFrameToTPortraitModel is the frame created by adapt for the 3d portraits.
