Display Incoming Healing (default raid frames)

In the default raid frames, there's an option to display incoming healing. I don't want to see the overlay that it gives for incoming casts/HoTs. However, this option also controls the display of the absorb overlay for shields.. etc.

Is it possible to only display the absorb overlay on the raid frames without showing the annoying incoming healing overlay?

Found the name of the frames using /fstack.

The absorb is called CompactRaidFrame#AbsorbOverlay and the incoming healing part is called MyHealPrediction.

Just not sure how to disable the "healprediction" part.

This isn't as simple as other unitframes since the raidframes are dynamically created and shuffled around as needed to facilitate sorting and filters. Also, the handling of the heal prediction and absorb bars are passed to a centralized function that would affect other unitframes using the same template.

If this doesn't bother you, you can try this.
Lua Code:
  1. local oldfunc=CompactUnitFrameUtil_UpdateFillBar;
  2. function CompactUnitFrameUtil_UpdateFillBar(frame,previous,bar,...)
  3.     if bar==frame.myHealPrediction or bar==frame.otherHealPrediction then
  4.         return previous;
  5.     end
  7.     return oldfunc(frame,previous,bar,...);
  8. end
  10. hooksecurefunc("CompactUnitFrame_SetUpFrame",function(frame)
  11.     frame.myHealPrediction:Hide();
  12.     frame.otherHealPrediction:Hide();
  13. end);

Thanks, the code you gave seems to be working fine.

Really annoying that simple stuff like this isn't an option considering the two things involved are completely different.

An absorb is actual healing that's already done and is critical to see. Healing prediction is just that.

Default UI sucks in lots of small ways, but I hate complete replacement addons at the same time.

Would it be possible to rewrite this to show the absorb overlay on the 40 default raid frames instead of hiding the healprediction overlay?
