Question ArenaEnemyFrame1CastingBar behaviour


I want to attach the cast bars of Blizzard's Arena Frames to my Gladius. I'm ONLY interested in the cast bars, so I want to hide the rest of Blizzard's Arena Frames.

But I have a problem: I can ONLY see ArenaEnemyFrame1CastingBar (castbar's frame) when ArenaEnemyFrame1 (enemy's frame) is also visible. If I hide ArenaEnemyFrame1, ArenaEnemyFrame1CastingBar also hides itselfs, but I want to see ONLY ArenaEnemyFrame1CastingBar (having ArenaEnemyFrame1 hidden). As an informative detail, they have the same behaviour with SetScale(), if I change the scale of ArenaEnemyFrame1, the scale of ArenaEnemyFrame1CastingBar also changes.

How can I "break" the relation between these 2 frames?

This is because ArenaEnemyFrame1 is set as the cast bar's parent. You'll need to change its parent to your Gladius frame using

Question Auto-anchor

Worked perfect thx.

Now I want to auto-anchor the cast bars when Gladius creates the "GladiusClassIconFramearenaN" frame (one for each enemy). So I have been thinking in using hooksecurefunc() to execute the SetPoint() and stuff after that frame is created. But I have come to the problem that this frame is created by the Gladius' ClassIcon Module (by the ClassIcon:CreateFrame() function) which object (ClassIcon) is declared as LOCAL... so I can't hook that function from my addon . Any workaround for this?
