Trying to make AH addon / update old addon. Help needed please.

Hi there.

I am trying to make a simple yet complicated for my lua knowledge addon, that adds a frame/window to the already existing default AH screen. Inside this frame I would like to display all my existing listed auction. I would like button as well that scans my auctions and display little red text next to them if they are been undercut with the option to cancel the current auction.

I know there is already existing addons for that out there, but I would love to make my own. I have knowledge in python, but none in lua. Please point me to the right direction.

Thanks.

  5. https://www.reddit.com/r/wowaddons/ - other authors assist with questions posted there in addition to here

I started with no coding experience. With those resources and the help of a few other authors, I was able to start creating addons.
Thanks a lot for your reply. Really good info here. Quick questions.

1) If I want my addon to be used in Vanilla for example, do I just change the Interface option in the toc folder to 1120?

2) Also I figured (I think) parenting of frames, but now sure how to attach it to already blizzard UI (the AH one). Any idea how to do that?

Many Thanks.
