In BfA there's two new Lua API namespaces for Azerite items.

The necklace is considered an "Azerite Item" and is under the C_AzeriteItem namespace, see /api AzeriteItem

It's unclear what you're eventually trying to do with the transforms, but my guess is that C_Map.GetWorldPosFromMapPos and C_Map.GetMapPosFromWorldPos would the best replacements.

I'd guess it's towards normalization of data. For instance, look at C_Map.GetMapLinksForMap, it returns the same 2D vector table but as a field of a subtable in a collection of tables. In that case,...

GC time is proportionate to the complexity of the garbage. These are incredibly simple tables.

That's way worse. It's just not attributing the memory usage to the addon. Now it's spending time lexing and compiling the string into byte code, which then becomes garbage. And then you pay the...

There's some confusion between UI maps and maps. UI maps are what you view when you press M.

Maps (or sometimes seen in Blizzard's code as continentID) are the physical areas that we run around in....

I don't think you need to worry about caching or the spell loading stuff. The only spell data you have to wait to load is spell descriptions and spell subtexts. If you're not using either of those,...

I'd guess that you're hitting the vertex or index buffer limit. SetColorTexture will create a texture of that color and would prevent render batching. Instead use SetColorTexture(1, 1, 1, 1) to...

It looks like the textures are still being released on hide. Basically the cvar is always set to 1. We just can't turn it off.

In the latest beta build it appears the CVar was removed. The texture paths/ids are now being returned even if the texture is hidden.

Hrm, nope. It's there on beta build 22000 and maybe earlier?

It was recently used in StaticPopupItemFrame_RetrieveInfo of StaticPopup.lua presumably to avoid the delayed texture lookup.

You can use GetItemInfoInstant(itemID) to get the texture file ID immediately. You can't get the name or some other data as that's asynchronous as you discovered.

That checks if the frame was explicitly set to flatten. Setting a frame to top level also implicitly flattens it. Some frames seem to always flatten also, like scroll frames, world frame and...

Is this different from how it works on live?

The UI anim system works directly at the rendering layer and not at the anchoring layer, so the behaviors are expectedly different.

@Simca Almost the opposite of that is what Rainrider wants I believe. When you use socket item that tells C to prepare artifact data for that artifact. When it's ready it fires the "ARTIFACT_UPDATE"...

You can open the artifact UI by requesting to socket the artifact through a call like SocketContainerItem or SocketInventoryItem. At that point you should be able to request artifact data.

The standard Blizz nameplates seem much better with today's build 21737. My FPS used to drop by 10-15 with around 20 nameplate on screen. I'm losing around 1-3 FPS now.
