Using SacureActionButton should basicly make it behave like actionbar button and using exiting action slot should show you the exact same spell that is on the other button with the same action slot.
button = CreateFrame("CHECKBUTTON", name, parent, "SecureActionButtonTemplate, ActionBarButtonTemplate")
Oh wow, I can't believe it's that easy. Thanks so much.
This question is going to seem even stupider, but is there something I need to do to make child frames visible in a parent frame? My parent frame (which is going to hold all the copied hotbar icons) has bounds of 0,0,0,0 so I assume that means the parent frame is effectively invisible and that's why I'm not seeing the button child? I feel like this should be simple to find but google's algorithms are abysmal these days and I can't find the keywords it wants to show me what I need.
This is the other addon I've made, it was a simple single-frame thing so I didn't need to figure much out in this regard.
Edit: Got it, just needed to do Frame:SetSize(). Seems good to go now, all I need to do is figure out multi-parameter slash commands, or rather if something like /slashcommand 1 2 5 8 can be parsed as one argument that I can turn into a list of numbers.
