Need help with WA2 script for mana percentage

Hi! This worked fine pre 8.0, but as of 8.0 it just doesn't display anything:

Code:
function()
    local percent = (UnitMana("player")/UnitManaMax("player"))*100
    return floor(percent+0.5).."%"
end
what's wrong? Thanks!

What Ammako is saying is that those functions have been deprecated for some time and were finally removed. Now you have to use their replacements.

Undestood it from his reply but thanks (forgot to reply originally)

However what I need is alternate power percentage (in this case, Shadowpriest mana bar that shows below insanity bar). Any suggestions?

The Enum.PowerType.Mana shown in the linked code is a number. Here’s the full table:

Lua Code:
  1. Enum = {
  2.     PowerType = {
  3.         Alternate = 10,
  4.         ArcaneCharges = 16,
  5.         Chi = 12,
  6.         ComboPoints = 4,
  7.         Energy = 3,
  8.         Focus = 2,
  9.         Fury = 17,
  10.         HealthCost = -2,
  11.         HolyPower = 9,
  12.         Insanity = 13,
  13.         LunarPower = 8,
  14.         Maelstrom = 11,
  15.         Mana = 0,
  16.         None = -1,
  17.         NumPowerTypes = 19,
  18.         Obsolete = 14,
  19.         Obsolete2 = 15,
  20.         Pain = 18,
  21.         Rage = 1,
  22.         Runes = 5,
  23.         RunicPower = 6,
  24.         SoulShards = 7,
  25.     },
  26. }

  24.         SoulShards = 7,
  25.     },
  26. }
Thanks for the list but I'm a bit lost on how to incorporate it into my current code snippet.

The following shows the current main power amount, I need it to show alternate power percentage (in my case, mana) :
Code:
function()
    local percent = (UnitPower("player")/UnitPowerMax("player"))*100
    return floor(percent+0.5)..""
end

As the linked code above shows, UnitPower has two arguments: unit and type. Type is a number and is one of the numbers I posted above.

Usage: UnitPower(unit,type)

This returns player mana: UnitPower("player",0)

This returns player insanity: UnitPower("player",13)

This returns max player mana: UnitPowerMax("player",0)

This returns max player insanity: UnitPowerMax("player",13)

And if you don't want to remember what number is what power you can instead use:

Code:
Enum.PowerType.Mana
Enum.PowerType.Rage
Enum.PowerType.Focus
Enum.PowerType.Energy
Enum.PowerType.ComboPoints
Enum.PowerType.Runes
Enum.PowerType.RunicPower
Enum.PowerType.SoulShards
Enum.PowerType.LunarPower
Enum.PowerType.HolyPower
Enum.PowerType.Maelstrom
Enum.PowerType.Chi
Enum.PowerType.Insanity
Enum.PowerType.ArcaneCharges
Enum.PowerType.Fury
Enum.PowerType.Pain
Insanity = UnitPower("player", Enum.PowerType.Insanity)
