Save location via SavedVariables

Code
Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2.  
  3. local CELL_WIDTH = 400
  4. local CELL_HEIGHT = 80
  5. local NUM_CELLS = 2
  6.  
  7. local data = {}
  8.  
  9. local f = CreateFrame("Frame", "SimpleScrollFrameTableDemo", UIParent, "BasicFrameTemplateWithInset")

  18.     end
  19. end
  20.  
  21. f:SetSize(CELL_WIDTH * NUM_CELLS + 80, 600)

  23. f:Hide()
  24. f:SetMovable(true)
  25. f:SetScript("OnMouseDown", f.StartMoving)

  34. f.scrollFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 12, -32)
  35. f.scrollFrame:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT", -34, 8)
  36.  
  37. f.scrollFrame.scrollChild = CreateFrame("Frame", nil, f.scrollFrame)
  38. f.scrollFrame.scrollChild:SetSize(100, 100)
  39. f.scrollFrame.scrollChild:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 5, -5)

  75. end
  76.  
  77.  
  78. -- Set your button options here
  79.  
  80. btn:SetPoint("CENTER")
  81. btn:SetSize(100, 40)
  82. btn:SetText("Click me")
  83. btn:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button, ...)
  84. btn:SetMovable(true)
  85. btn:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton')
  86. btn:SetScript('OnDragStart', btn.StartMoving)
  87. btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', btn.StopMovingOrSizing)
  88.     if (button == "RightButton" and btn:IsVisible()) then
  89.         btn:Hide()
  90.     end
  91.  
  92.     updateData()
  93.     updateList()
  94.     f:Show()
  95. end)
  96. btn:RegisterForClicks("AnyUp")
  97.  
  98. SLASH_HUBB1 = "/hubb"
  99. SlashCmdList["HUBB"] = function(msg)
  100.     updateData()
  101.     updateList()
  102.     f:Show()
  103. end

A separate code is just a button

Lua Code:
  1. btn:SetPoint("CENTER")
  2. btn:SetSize(100, 40)
  3. btn:SetText("Click me")
  4. btn:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button, ...)
  5. btn:SetMovable(true)
  6. btn:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton')
  7. btn:SetScript('OnDragStart', btn.StartMoving)
  8. btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', btn.StopMovingOrSizing)
  9.     if (button == "RightButton" and btn:IsVisible()) then
  10.         btn:Hide()
  11.     end
  12.  
  13.     updateData()
  14.     updateList()
  15.     f:Show()
  16. end)
  17. btn:RegisterForClicks("AnyUp")

At the moment, the button returns to the center when using the command /reload

Did I redo it correctly?
Lua Code:
  1. btn:RegisterEvent("ADDON_LOADED")
  2. btn:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_LOGOUT")
  3. btn:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, arg1)
  4.     if event == "ADDON_LOADED" and arg1 == "HaveWeMet" then
  5. end
  6. btn:SetPoint("CENTER")
  7. btn:SetSize(100, 40)
  8. btn:SetText("Click me")
  9. btn:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button, ...)
  10. btn:SetMovable(true)
  11. btn:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton')
  12. btn:SetScript('OnDragStart', btn.StartMoving)
  13. btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', btn.StopMovingOrSizing)
  14.     if (button == "RightButton" and btn:IsVisible()) then
  15.         btn:Hide()
  16.     end
  17.  
  18.     updateData()
  19.     updateList()
  20.     f:Show()
  21. end)
  22. btn:RegisterForClicks("AnyUp")

Blizz. will save the frame but if the user removes the addon for any reason, it will reset to the default location if they decide to install the addon again.
Lua Code:
  1. btn:SetPoint("CENTER")
  2. btn:SetSize(100, 40)
  3. btn:SetText("Click me")
  4. btn:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button, ...)
  5. btn:SetMovable(true)
  6. btn:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton')
  7. btn:SetUserPlaced(true) -- Only works if the frame is created before the PLAYER_LOGIN event

after the /reload command, the button returns to its place. It doesn't work

I missed the CreateFrame code for btn in the original post

For Blizz to save the position, the frame has to have a unique name.
Lua Code:
  1. local btn = CreateFrame("Button", addonName.."MovingButton", UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")

I have no idea what code you're testing so, as a standalone example of a button that can be dragged and saved.

Lua Code:
  1. local btn = CreateFrame("Button", "Hubb777MovingButton", UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  2. btn:SetPoint("CENTER")
  3. btn:SetSize(100, 40)
  4. btn:SetText("Click me")
  5. btn:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button, ...) print("I've been clicked!") end)
  6. btn:SetMovable(true)
  7. btn:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton')
  8. btn:SetUserPlaced(true) -- Only works if the frame is created before the PLAYER_LOGIN event
  9. btn:SetScript('OnDragStart', btn.StartMoving)
  10. btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', btn.StopMovingOrSizing)
  11. btn:RegisterForClicks("AnyUp")

You will have to move the pieces into your addon. Possibly just the btn:SetUserPlaced(true) and giving the button a name.

Some of that code is completely broken so I assumed you were posting example code and would make changes to the real code. You should be getting errors from BugGrabber/Bugsack . Install them if you haven't yet.

Code:
btn:SetScript("OnClick:, function(self, button, ...)
Is an unfinished script handler, no end) .

Whereas
Code:
btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', btn.StopMovingOrSizing)
Is finished but then the next few lines look like they are supposed to be part of the OnDragStop script but end up being incomplete (it has an end with no function(...) to start the block and a ) after the end with no SetScript to start the bracket pair.

Here is the code with a print to fill in the OnClick, a fix that may or may not be what you intend for the OnDragStop script and I commented out the updateData() because addon.db isn't created in the code shown. Add it back if it is in another .lua file but the code as is should at least work for demonstrating the SetUserPlaced() saving the button position.
Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2.  
  3. local CELL_WIDTH = 400
  4. local CELL_HEIGHT = 80
  5. local NUM_CELLS = 2
  6.  
  7. local data = {}
  8.  
  9. local f = CreateFrame("Frame", "SimpleScrollFrameTableDemo", UIParent, "BasicFrameTemplateWithInset")
  10.  
  11. -- Create the button here
  12. local btn = CreateFrame("Button", nil, UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  13.  
  14. local function updateData() --commented out because addon.db hasn't been created... in the code at least
  15.     wipe(data)
  16.     for _, item in ipairs(addon.db) do
  17.         tinsert(data, {item.announce[GetLocale()], item.icon, item.name})
  18.     end
  19. end
  20.  
  21. f:SetSize(CELL_WIDTH * NUM_CELLS + 80, 600)
  22. f:SetPoint("CENTER")
  23. f:Hide()
  24. f:SetMovable(true)
  25. f:SetScript("OnMouseDown", f.StartMoving)
  26. f:SetScript("OnMouseUp", f.StopMovingOrSizing)
  27.  
  28. -- I added this OnHide script
  29. f:SetScript("OnHide", function()

Is an unfinished script handler, no end) .

Whereas
Code:
btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', btn.StopMovingOrSizing)
Is finished but then the next few lines look like they are supposed to be part of the OnDragStop script but end up being incomplete (it has an end with no function(...) to start the block and a ) after the end with no SetScript to start the bracket pair.

Here is the code with a print to fill in the OnClick, a fix that may or may not be what you intend for the OnDragStop script and I commented out the updateData() because addon.db isn't created in the code shown. Add it back if it is in another .lua file but the code as is should at least work for demonstrating the SetUserPlaced() saving the button position.
Just like I said before. I took your other advice (in another forum thread), but since my knowledge of LUA is low, I probably didn't copy everything.

Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2.  
  3. local CELL_WIDTH = 400
  4. local CELL_HEIGHT = 80
  5. local NUM_CELLS = 2
  6.  
  7. local data = {}
  8.  
  9. local f = CreateFrame("Frame", "SimpleScrollFrameTableDemo", UIParent, "BasicFrameTemplateWithInset")
  10.  
  11. -- Create the button here
  12. local btn = CreateFrame("Button", nil, UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  13.  
  14. local function updateData() --commented out because addon.db hasn't been created... in the code at least
  15.     wipe(data)
  16.     for _, item in ipairs(addon.db) do
  17.         tinsert(data, {item.announce[GetLocale()], item.icon, item.name})
  18.     end
  19. end
  20.  
  21. f:SetSize(CELL_WIDTH * NUM_CELLS + 80, 600)
  22. f:SetPoint("CENTER")
  23. f:Hide()
  24. f:SetMovable(true)
  25. f:SetScript("OnMouseDown", f.StartMoving)
  26. f:SetScript("OnMouseUp", f.StopMovingOrSizing)
  27.  
  28. -- I added this OnHide script
  29. f:SetScript("OnHide", function()
  30.     btn:Show()
  31. end)
  32.  
  33. f.scrollFrame = CreateFrame("ScrollFrame", nil, f, "UIPanelScrollFrameTemplate")
  34. f.scrollFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 12, -32)
  35. f.scrollFrame:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT", -34, 8)
  36.  
  37. f.scrollFrame.scrollChild = CreateFrame("Frame", nil, f.scrollFrame)
  38. f.scrollFrame.scrollChild:SetSize(100, 100)
  39. f.scrollFrame.scrollChild:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 5, -5)
  40. f.scrollFrame:SetScrollChild(f.scrollFrame.scrollChild)
  41.  
  42. local content = f.scrollFrame.scrollChild
  43. content.rows = {}
  44.  
  45. local function updateList()
  46.     for i = 1, #data do
  47.         if not content.rows[i] then
  48.             local button = CreateFrame("Button", nil, content)
  49.             button:SetSize(CELL_WIDTH * NUM_CELLS, CELL_HEIGHT)
  50.             button:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 0, -(i - 1) * CELL_HEIGHT)
  51.             button.columns = {}
  52.  
  53.             button.columns[1] = button:CreateFontString(nil, "ARTWORK", "GameFontHighlight")
  54.             button.columns[1]:SetPoint("LEFT", (0) * CELL_WIDTH, 0)
  55.  
  56.             button.columns[2] = button:CreateTexture()

  61.  
  62.             content.rows[i] = button
  63.         end
  64.  
  65.         content.rows[i].columns[1]:SetText(data[i][1])
  66.         content.rows[i].columns[2]:SetTexture(data[i][2])
  67.         content.rows[i].columns[3]:SetText(data[i][3])
  68.  
  69.         content.rows[i]:Show()
  70.     end
  71.  
  72.     for i = #data + 1, #content.rows do
  73.         content.rows[i]:Hide()
  74.     end
  75. end
  76.  
  77.  
  78. -- Set your button options here
  79. local btn = CreateFrame("Button", "Hubb777MovingButton", UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  80. btn:SetPoint("CENTER")
  81. btn:SetSize(100, 40)
  82. btn:SetText("Click me")
  83. btn:SetScript("OnClick", function(self, button, ...)end)
  84.  
  85. btn:SetMovable(true)
  86. btn:RegisterForDrag('LeftButton')
  87. btn:SetUserPlaced(true)
  88. btn:SetScript('OnDragStart', btn.StartMoving)
  89. btn:SetScript('OnDragStop', function(self)

  93.     end
  94.  
  95.     updateData()
  96.     updateList()
  97.     f:Show()
  98. end)
  99. btn:RegisterForClicks("AnyUp")
  100.  
  101. SLASH_HUBB1 = "/hubb"
  102. SlashCmdList["HUBB"] = function(msg)
  103.     updateData()
  104.     updateList()
  105.     f:Show()
  106. end

This code almost works. It saves the position of the button
But the button does not display the table if I press the left mouse button. But if I press the left mouse button and shift and try to move the button, the table window turns on. What could be the problem?

Programs are stupid. You have to tell them exactly what you want. Maybe something like: (Left buton down, shift-key down = drag. right button = hide button. left button no shift-key toggle show/hide the frame (f))

Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2.  
  3. local CELL_WIDTH = 400
  4. local CELL_HEIGHT = 80
  5. local NUM_CELLS = 2
  6.  
  7. local data = {}
  8.  
  9. local f = CreateFrame("Frame", "SimpleScrollFrameTableDemo", UIParent, "BasicFrameTemplateWithInset")
  10.  
  11. -- Create the button here
  12. local btn = CreateFrame("Button", nil, UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  13.  
  14. local function updateData() --commented out because addon.db hasn't been created... in the code at least
  15.     wipe(data)
  16.     for _, item in ipairs(addon.db) do
  17.         tinsert(data, {item.announce[GetLocale()], item.icon, item.name})
  18.     end
  19. end
  20.  
  21. f:SetSize(CELL_WIDTH * NUM_CELLS + 80, 600)
  22. f:SetPoint("CENTER")
  23. f:Hide()
  24. f:SetMovable(true)
  25. f:SetScript("OnMouseDown", f.StartMoving)
  26. f:SetScript("OnMouseUp", f.StopMovingOrSizing)
  27.  
  28. -- I added this OnHide script
  29. f:SetScript("OnHide", function()

  54.             button.columns[1]:SetPoint("LEFT", (0) * CELL_WIDTH, 0)
  55.  
  56.             button.columns[2] = button:CreateTexture()

  99.         updateData()

  107.     updateData()
  108.     updateList()
  109.     f:Show()
  110. end

You possibly want a way to get the button back after it's hidden other than a /reaload but may not, it's not clear?

Yes, it worked. The code works completely as intended. Thank you very much. I couldn't have done it without you.

And how to do it?

If I solve the problem - how do I insert a link to an item in the text that is in the table, I will be able to make my first addon.

I've created this as an all-in-one example including an example addon.db where I've replaced the item name, icon and added the link for some random items (got rid of the icon texture in the frame as it's in the text, but but it's up to you how you organise the stuff).

Added two %s to each enUS string which gets replaced by the icon (size set to 20x20) and hyperlink when the text is set.

Again, Example Code so, how you get/display the information for your addon will depend on the what/when of the addons workings.

Added a check in the slash command so if you type /hubb btn it will toggle the button

Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2.  
  3. local CELL_WIDTH = 400
  4. local CELL_HEIGHT = 80
  5. local NUM_CELLS = 2
  6.  
  7. -- name and icon (and link) set by LoadItem() when the item is cached.
  8. addon.db = {
  9.     {
  10. --        name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  11.         questID = 75612,
  12. --        icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  13.         item = 6218,
  14.         announce = {
  15.             enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind. %s %s Bring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring Overlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful equipment for your efforts"
  16.         }
  17.     },
  18.     {
  19. --        name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  20.         questID = 75624,
  21. --        icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  22.         item = 20897,
  23.         announce = {
  24.             enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind. %s %s Bring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring Overlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful equipment for your efforts\n\nAwarded for outstanding service to (clickable link to the item) Dragonkind.

Again, Example Code so, how you get/display the information for your addon will depend on the what/when of the addons workings.

Added a check in the slash command so if you type /hubb btn it will toggle the button

But for some reason, the button and the slash command stopped being pressed.
table.lua
I'm not sure what you mean by "stopped being pressed", or the whole sentence really?.

You removed the option to show/hide the button from the slash command (or at least didn't copy the SlashCmdList["HUBB"] = function(msg) code from my example.

Your latest code contains a function GetItemLinkById I have no idea what it is or where it's from but it's not Blizz and it's not defined in anything you've posted so colour me confused that it works at all.

Your code works 100%. But it displays the items in the chat, rather than displaying a table. And it is the table that I need.


An example where instead of {item:194701} there is a link to the item.

Assured by who? If it's not a game function and it's not one of yours hidden somewher in other code then I don't know where it comes from.

Still not sure what it is you want. Possibly just a custom tooltip?

Delete the lines
Lua Code:
  1. button:SetScript("OnHyperlinkEnter", OnHyperlinkEnter)

(You can delete the OnHyperlinkEnter function as well)

Change the OnHyperlinkClick function to:
Lua Code:
  1. Change the OnHyperlinkClick function to be
  2.     GameTooltip:SetOwner(self, "ANCHOR_CURSOR_RIGHT")
  3.     GameTooltip:AddText("Unlocks this customization option for the Renewed Proto-Drake at the Rostrum of Transformation")
  4.     GameTooltip:Show()
  5. end
Once again, just an example tooltip with fixed text (which you could (would) get the actual text from the addon.db table or some other source).

The other possabilty is you want the click to open the item tooltip rather than doing it OnEnter in which case, the the OnHyperlinkClick function would be:
Lua Code:
  1. local function OnHyperlinkClick(self, link, text, region, left, bottom, width, heigh) -- Show the hyperling tooltip when clicked
  2.     SetItemRef(link, text, button, self);
  3. end

In this example, when I clicked a button, a table appeared. The table contained text and pictures.
https://www.wowinterface.com/forums/...ad.php?t=59796
Here is a table (picture 1)

I want to be able to add a link to an item in the description of the text, anywhere in the text.
I did this in photo editor GIMP (it turned out a little crooked)

You still don't say what you want to see when a link is clicked so, using the code you linked and guessing you just want to see the item tooltip when a link is clicked:

The item field added to each entry in addon.db is the (random because I don't know that acual) item ID that will be the link/tooltip (replacing the %s in each announce.enUS field).

db.lua file
Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2. addon.db = {
  3.     {
  4.         name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  5.         questID = 75612,
  6.         icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  7.         item = 210399,
  8.         announce = {
  9.             enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind.\n%s\nBring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring \nOverlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful \nequipment for your efforts"
  10.         }
  11.     },
  12.     {
  13.         name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  14.         questID = 75624,
  15.         icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  16.         item = 20897,
  17.         announce = {
  18.             enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind.\n%s\nBring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring \nOverlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful \nequipment for your efforts"
  19.         }
  20.     },
  21.     {
  22.         name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  23.         questID = 74352,
  24.         icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  25.         item = 193440,
  26.         announce = {
  27.             enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind.\n%s\nBring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring \nOverlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful \nequipment for your efforts"
  28.         }
  29.     }
  30. }

Hello. Yes, that's perfect. This is exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for your help. I have already started creating my first addon. Which I will definitely publish on https://www.wowinterface.com/.

I set the localization lines correctly, did I do everything right?

Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addon = ...
  2. addon.db = {
  3.     {
  4.         name = {
  5.             enUS = "Herb-Infused Water",
  6.             deDE = "Mit Kräutern aromatisiertes Wasser"
  7.         },
  8.         questID = 75612,
  9.         icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  10.         item = 210399,
  11.         announce = {
  12.             deDE = "Die Grundlage eines jeden %s Getränks: Wasser! Aufgegossen mit ausgewählten Kräutern aus meinem Garten.",
  13.              enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind.\n%s\nBring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring \nOverlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful \nequipment for your efforts",
  14.         }
  15.     },
  16.     {
  17.         name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  18.         questID = 75624,
  19.         icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  20.         item = 20897,
  21.         announce = {
  22.              enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind.\n%s\nBring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring \nOverlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful \nequipment for your efforts"
  23.         }
  24.     },
  25.     {
  26.         name = "Emerald Mark of Mastery",
  27.         questID = 74352,
  28.         icon = "interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11",
  29.         item = 193440,
  30.         announce = {
  31.              enUS = "Awarded for outstanding service to Dragonkind.\n%s\nBring it to Theozhaklos the Curious at the Wellspring \nOverlook in the Emerald Dream to receive powerful \nequipment for your efforts"
  32.         }
  33.     }
  34. }
  35. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  36. -- Code to replace %s in announce texts with item links. Replaces the GetItemLinkById(...) function
  37. local function LoadItem(item)
  38.     for k, v in pairs(addon.db[item.dbID].announce) do -- replace the %s with the itemlink in eal locale in the .announce key
  39.         addon.db[item.dbID].announce[k] = format(v, item:GetItemLink())
  40.     end
  41. end
  42. for i, v in ipairs(addon.db) do
  43.     local item = Item:CreateFromItemID(v.item)
  44.     item.dbID = i
  45.     item:ContinueOnItemLoad(function() LoadItem(item) end)
  46. end

That looks OK.

The only thing is that you have a deDE for a only one entry in addon.db where
Code:
tinsert(data, {item.announce[GetLocale()], item.icon, item.name})
will cause an error if the entry is missing in any single entry for the users locale return from GetLocale().

Have Fun!
