I'm creating a raid cooldowns tracker (so far quite successfully) the thing is:
Im having multiple auras that fire if the player is in raid and G1 and G2 (G3+ is used for backups and replaces)
so, if the player is in G1 and G2, and I have a tracker for one of his CD's it will show up.
I have grouped it before with "regular" group, yet since it lacks the dynamic thing, every aura has a specific location and therefore, if X player is not in the group, a gap will be created in the spot where should be "his" CD.
with dynamic grouping i can keep the bars stacked and its easier to see what CD's "we" have ready.
question is... since I'm sorting it and i need more than just 1 line/row I ask the question:
If i use dynamic groups, all the auras will be stored in a single line/row or can I create 2 line/columns? (if so, how can I do it?) or do I need a 2nd dynamic group for the 2nd line/row?
It would be possible using animations and custom functions for auras in a static group but it would be 1.5 metric assloads of code and certainly not worth the effort.
The two groups approach makes more sense.
currently I have 2 triggers GROUP_ROOSTER_UPDATE and COMBATLOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED
with those I can track whenever the group has been changed so I can "show"/"hide" available CD's accordingly and track whenever the target player has used his cooldown or whatnot.
yet now i have some sort of thing.
the weakaura is a bar, and one of the text i have is a "%C" mainly because i want it to track either the cooldown of the spell from that player OR, if the cooldown is ready to use, display the word "READY!"
thing is... that %C needs a trigger update, and the 2 options that it shows it "Every Frame" or "On Trigger Update"
sadly "On Trigger Update" might be a little to floppy and create a uneven timer, and yet, "Every Frame", even since I'm playing only 30 fps I feel that its too much and drawing resources that are not needed just for a simple time tracker.
any option on a good trigger that happens every second so I can use "On Trigger Update" and feel safe? ( I was thinking about UNIT_POWER since I'm a healer and im always updating my mana but if you have a better idea)
