Exclamation I need help with lua code

Hello there,

I need help with a lua script, I would like to add color into PlayerFrame aswell same as TargetFrame and FocusFrame.

In the code below it already have class color in health bar and color behind name of target and focus, not player frame.
(red marked text is the code I tried to implement without any success)


local frame = CreateFrame("FRAME")
frame:RegisterEvent("GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE")
frame:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_TARGET_CHANGED")
frame:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_FOCUS_CHANGED")
frame:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_FRAME_CHANGED")<- Not sure about this one, tried many different texts.
frame:RegisterEvent("UNIT_FACTION")

local function eventHandler(self, event, ...)
if UnitIsPlayer("target") then
c = RAID_CLASS_COLORS[select(2, UnitClass("target"))]
TargetFrameNameBackground:SetVertexColor(c.r, c.g, c.b)
end
if UnitIsPlayer("focus") then
c = RAID_CLASS_COLORS[select(2, UnitClass("focus"))]
FocusFrameNameBackground:SetVertexColor(c.r, c.g, c.b)
end
if UnitIsPlayer("player") then
c = RAID_CLASS_COLORS[select(2, UnitClass("player"))]
PlayerFrameNameBackground:SetVertexColor(c.r, c.g, c.b)

end
end

frame:SetScript("OnEvent", eventHandler)

for _, BarTextures in pairs({TargetFrameNameBackground, FocusFrameNameBackground, PlayerFrameNameBackground}) do
BarTextures:SetTexture("Interface\\TargetingFrame\\UI-StatusBar")
end

Here's the same overall code I posted in this thread but, with some modifications for you....

Code:
local function getPlayerColors(unit)

   if not UnitExists(unit) then return end

   local color
   local class = select(2, UnitClass(unit))

   if UnitIsPlayer(unit) then
      color = (CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS or RAID_CLASS_COLORS)[class]
   else
      color = FACTION_BAR_COLORS[UnitReaction(unit, "player")]
   end

   return color.r, color.g, color.b

end

local UpdateColor = CreateFrame("Frame")
UpdateColor:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")
UpdateColor:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_TARGET_CHANGED")
UpdateColor:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_FOCUS_CHANGED")
UpdateColor:RegisterEvent("UNIT_FACTION")
UpdateColor:SetScript("OnEvent", function(_, event)

   _G["PlayerFrameNameBackground"]:SetVertexColor(getPlayerColors("player"))
   _G["TargetFrameNameBackground"]:SetVertexColor(getPlayerColors("target"))
   _G["FocusFrameNameBackground"]:SetVertexColor(getPlayerColors("focus"))

end)

for _, BarTextures in pairs({TargetFrameNameBackground, FocusFrameNameBackground, PlayerFrameNameBackground}) do
   BarTextures:SetTexture("Interface\\TargetingFrame\\UI-StatusBar")
end

btw, PLAYER_FRAME_CHANGED will not work as it's not a valid event. -> https://wow.gamepedia.com/Events

I can't test this right now but, it should work.
