ScrollingMessageFrame and letters getting cut off

Hello!



This is a message added to a ScrollingMessageFrame in InsertMode 2, so starting at the bottom. Is there a way to bump it up a few pixels, so those specific letters don't get cut off by the frame's edge? Moving/resizing the frame will cause the fontstrings to "jump" a pixel up and down, as it likes to do, so it is possible to get it to display perfectly, but I'd like to avoid the occasional glitch.

Thank you

I found a solution, for anyone running into the same issue. The ScrollingMessageFrame keeps an indexed table of visible lines, called visibleLines, where 1 (at least in my case, with insertMode 2) is the first one, and RefreshLayout gets called every time the frame gets resized, moved, etc.

Lua Code:
  1. hooksecurefunc(f, "RefreshLayout", function(self, ...)
  2.         if self.visibleLines[1] ~= nil then
  3.             self.visibleLines[1]:SetPoint("BOTTOMLEFT", 0, 2)
  4.         end
  5. end)

Where f is the SMF itself. Anyway, works for now!
