    !beautycase & Stuf

    Hello y'all,

    I want to move away from the pixel border I now use in Stuf, and try something with Neal's !beautycase borders.
    Problem is, I have no idea how to do that. The info provided on wowinterface is very abstract to me.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to combine !beautycase and Stuf, and how would I do it?

    thanks in advance !

    Gues I'll just talk to myself here ...

    For example the player frame, when mouseover, gives the name "Stuf.units.player".
    When I make a border "CreateBorder(Stuf.units.player, 12, r, g, b, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1)" !beautycase tells me the frame is unknown.

    Anyone know what I should name the playerframe?

    thanks in advance !

    How is stuf generating frames?

    tried this macro to check if you're using the right framename ?

    /print GetMouseFocus():GetName()
    Gonna need to check stuf code to help you further , i'll take a look when i get home.

    /fstack is likely more convenient than the script above.

    Yeah I used thet /fstack since the other script doesn't give me anything.

    I'll post a screenshot tonight of what /fstack prints.

    The script would only work when bound to a key, since it would tell you what is under the cursor at that moment, and so would not be much use if clicking a button to use it.

    It is looking like the frames are not actually being named, and so cannot be valid targets.

    Ok thanks, that confirms what i was afraid of

    Is there an UF addon you know of that supports !beautycase? I'm going to try and do it with Zork's simple ouf layout. after all the years of changing x's and y's in lua it's propably a good time look deeper into it and try to get the hang of ouf. /shrug

    I'm thinking of making an addon for the !beautyborders, but I'm not quite sure on how to do that.
    From what I've gathered it's best to call the addon Z"something" cause wow launches the addons in an alphabetical order.

    so I make an folder called
    Zborder

    inside Ill have 2 files

    Zborder.toc
    Code:
    ## Interface: 50300
    ## Title: Zborder
    
    Zborder.lua
    Zborder.lua
    Code:
    CreateBorder(ChatFrame1, 12, r, g, b, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1)
    CreateBorder(Minimap, 12, r, g, b, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1)
    --and so on for every part of the ui I want to use the border on
    Is that all there is to it?

    thansk in advance !
