NameplateColors - "SetTargetClampingInsets" error

Hello there,
I'm using addon NamePlateColors which is giving me this error:
Lua Code:
  1. 1x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn 'NameplateColors' tried to call the protected function 'SetTargetClampingInsets()'.
  2. !BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:573: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:573>
  3. [C]: in function `SetTargetClampingInsets'
  4. ...eBlizzard_NamePlates\Blizzard_NamePlates.lua:221: in function `SetupClassNameplateBars'
  5. ...eBlizzard_NamePlates\Blizzard_NamePlates.lua:74: in function `OnNamePlateAdded'
  6. ...eBlizzard_NamePlates\Blizzard_NamePlates.lua:38: in function <...eBlizzard_NamePlates\Blizzard_NamePlates.lua:32>
  8. Locals:

Do you know what's causing this error and how to fix it?

I can't really help you but it seams that only Blizzard can use the function "SetTargetClampingInsets()" so it won't work.

Unfortunately I can't help you more than that, sorry

Ever since the introduction of the new nameplates, this is now the common "vague taint" error that quite a few addons are getting, along with the CompactRaidFrame error that's been around for years. Some addons even report both. We know that the CompactRaidFrame error stems from using Blizzard's DropDownMenu but no one has figured out what causes this SetTargetClampingInsets error yet.

I'm almost sure that it's caused by UnitSelectionColor or GameTooltip_UnitColor or both.

Related from this thread http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=54635

I tested with KuiNameplates, TidyPlates and ElvUI and they don't have this problem
While Plater and NameplateColors do taint in combat

When setting the r, g, b fields on a healthbar it taints. Omitting it still works but .SetStatusBarColor will then be called everytime, fwiw
Lua Code:
  1. hooksecurefunc("CompactUnitFrame_UpdateHealthColor", function(frame)
  2.     local r, g, b = 1, 0, 0
  3.     if r ~= frame.healthBar.r or g ~= frame.healthBar.g or b ~= frame.healthBar.b then
  4.         frame.healthBar:SetStatusBarColor(r, g, b) -- doesnt taint
  5.         frame.healthBar.r, frame.healthBar.g, frame.healthBar.b = r, g, b -- taints
  6.     end
  7. end)

Hopefully it's fixed now, but please give your feedback otherwise
