C_AuctionHouse.ReplicateItems() - Problem

Hi there,

I've wrote a little piece to test out the abilities of the function C_AuctionHouse.ReplicateItems(), with a button which onclick executes the function,but it keeps returning nil. While executing the function, my auctionhouse-frame is open. storedVar is a saved Variable and the function doesn't seem to need any parameters.

Lua Code:
  1. local b = CreateFrame("Button", "MyButton", UIParent, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  2. b:SetSize(80 ,22)
  3. b:SetText("Button!")
  4. b:SetPoint("CENTER")
  5. b:SetScript("OnClick", function()
  6.     storedVar = ""
  7.     storedVar = C_AuctionHouse.ReplicateItems()
  8. end)

i'm fairly new to LUA and maybe i made a mistake somehow.

Any hint on what i'm possibly doing wrong would be appreciated.

It's doing nothing because you aren't passing any arguments. ReplicateItems is the 8.3 replacement for QueryAuctionItems. Check out the old function for more info: https://wow.gamepedia.com/API_QueryAuctionItems

yeah, i've read about the auctionhouse api-changes but my problem is, that the documentation states, that it is a replacement for a old allitems-query of QueryAuctionItems where the getAll parameter had to be set to 0 to download the complete data of the auctions. I've tried passing different sets of parameters, but i can't figure out a working one.

I'd say just from looking at Deprecated_8_3_0.lua you don't have to pass any parameters to ReplicateItems() and can subsequently call GetReplicateItemInfo(index) up to GetNumReplicateItems()

Thanks for your answer Ketho. Never noticed that the function has no return-values, the rest is somehow obvious.
