    Combining two lua codes

    Both of these work, but I'd like to combine them all into one.

    First one changes class colour text:

    local r,g,b = ClassColor(unit)
    return '|cff%02x%02x%02x%s|r %s%s%s',r,g,b,Name(unit),Angle(AFK(unit) or DND(unit))

    Second one shortens long names into an abbreviated form on healthbars:

    local abbr = Name(unit)
    if abbr:len() > 20 and abbr:find(" ") then
    abbr = abbr:gsub("([^ ]+) +",
    function(text)
    return text:sub(1,1) .. ". "
    end)
    end
    return "%s", abbr;

    How can I combine these, so that both functions work as one entry? If it helps, I'm using pitbull.

    Put the second bit of code first, then replace the Name(unit) with abbr


    local abbr = Name(unit)
    if abbr:len() > 20 and abbr:find(" ") then
    abbr = abbr:gsub("([^ ]+) +", function(text)
    return text:sub(1,1) .. ". "
    end)
    end
    local r,g,b = ClassColor(unit)
    return '|cff%02x%02x%02x%s|r %s%s%s',r,g,b,abbr,Angle(AFK(unit) or DND(unit))
