Nil error for something I cannot track down

Attached is a zip of my WIP of RepByZone, as copying my Lua code will take up a lot of space in a thread. I do understand the error, but cannot explain what is causing it to happen. The variable that should have data is on line 141 of Core-Retail.lua, in the Onitialize function, and refreshed on line 6 of Options.lua just in case the user has changed something. Why Options.lua cannot see that variable, I don't know.

I need fresh eyes, methinks. The error dump is below.

Lua Code:
  1. 1x RepByZone\Options-Options.lua:77: bad argument #1 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)
  2. [string "=[C]"]: in function `format'
  3. [string "@RepByZone\Options-Options.lua"]:77: in function `member'

As far as I can tell, in the set for useClassRep (Options.lua line 83) you have
Code:
self.racialRepID, self.racialRepName = self:GetRacialRep()
Is self:GetRacialRep() returning anything at this point?

Hm. It did, but now it isn't showing in the options UI. I wonder what I did to cause that?

You have the .zip in your previous post to undo whatever it was

Okay, the nil error is because data is not ready when I assign variables. The trouble is that there is no logical reason why the data should not exist. I have tried all sorts of variations of my code, and I'm getting nowhere. What I should see in the options, from Options.lua which hasn't changed, is:
  • A toggle that is either a class or race reputation. The text would be the same for a Night Elf Demon Hunter because there is no class reputation. If you are a Night Elf Druid, the text should switch between Darnassus and Cenarion Circle.
  • There should be a menu list of the player's known factions, defaulting to either class or race faction unless the user changes the watched faction.
Neither of these are displaying and fire the error from my first post.

Below is the latest version of Core-Retail.lua.
Lua Code:

Have you checked for the obvious things like:

Is there a chance the character has a self.db but not a self.db.profile.useClassRep making local useClassRep nil in RepByZoneGetRacialRep()?

GetNumFactions() returns 0 at the time you're calling it, C_Covenants.GetActiveCovenantID() aswell.

Maybe you could get all the faction data in OnEnable instead? I think AceAddon's OnEnable is PLAYER_LOGIN, which should be fine (you also avoid running code that isn't needed when the user has disabled the addon ingame).

Good to know. I did solve the other issue, with the name being nil. I'll check my code to see where I can adjust GetNumFactions() and C_Covenants.GetActiveCovenantID().

Thank you good people for the helpful hints. Everything is back to working condition with RepByZone 1.19.5, and now I'm doing data entry again.
