How to disable Addon for specific Class Spec?

Hi,

I would like to modify https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addon...-mode-targeter to disable the addon for holy paladin and mistweaver monk.

Sadly I am a noob in programing.

I can read some parts and "addonTable:Disable(OPTIONS)" should disable the addon in the code.

Is there any function to detect the mentioned class specs?

If so how can I use this and there does it need to be placed in the code?

Thx

I'm looking into this...

I'm looking into this for my MagnetButtons addon. I will let you know when I know... Crazy day, but if you want a go at figuring it out, I will quickly explain what to look for... create a frame and set a script for OnEvent, and RegisterAllEvents()... Somewhere in there lies a way to detect spec changes.

Worst case, use an OnUpdate frame event handler to constantly check your current role, and call some callback function when it changes.

You'd want to register for PLAYER_SPECIALIZATION_CHANGED

You can get the current spec with GetSpecialization(). Below is an example of usage from wowpedia:
Lua Code:
  1. local currentSpec = GetSpecialization()
  2. if currentSpec then
  3.    local _, currentSpecName = GetSpecializationInfo(currentSpec)
  4.    print("Your current spec:", currentSpecName)
  5. else
  6.    print("You do not currently have a spec.")
  7. end
