Opening an addon settings panel?

Hello,

To open the settings panel of my addon, I use:
Lua Code:
  1. Settings.OpenToCategory(myAddonName)
It worked fine on previous PTR versions but now, this command only opens the general options panel.
Furthermore, if I have several addons, each settings panel is not always refreshed ("open" event is not always sent).

Is there a new way to open an addon settings panel?

try instead:
Code:
InterfaceOptionsFrame:Show()
InterfaceOptionsFrame_OpenToCategory("YourAddonName")

Code:
InterfaceOptionsFrame:Show()
This raises an error on PTR.

Code:
InterfaceOptionsFrame_OpenToCategory("YourAddonName")
This is deprecated, according to https://github.com/Gethe/wow-ui-sour...recated.lua#L4

You could try this .. Dragonflight includes a fair amount of UI changes

https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Pat....0/API_changes

There has been some issues however where the settings panel will trigger errors. Whether it is the fault of the code in the addon or the changes in the blizzard code is hard to say.

So many in fact, ther's also a seperate page to cover the Beta (the actual Dragonflight expansion release) version which has differences that are not in the PTR.

Yes, that's what I did, and the Canvas Layout example worked on previous PTR versions. Maybe it will work again in next versions...

ahh InterfaceOptionsFrame:Show() did indeed throw a error, swear it didn't in beta last week, but regarding beta(not ptr), the following was tested working just now.
Code:
	CreateFrame("Frame", "OptionsPanel")
	OptionsPanel.name = "YourAddon"
	InterfaceOptions_AddCategory(OptionsPanel)
	SlashCmdList["ABCSlash"] = function()
		InterfaceOptionsFrame_OpenToCategory("YourAddon")
	end
	SLASH_ABCSlash1 = "/abc"

Thank you.
It doesn't work better than my original script but we'll see on next PTR versions.
