IsSpellInRange("Zeal","target")

I use the above code to determine if my target is in melee range. It works 99% of the time as intended. However there are situations / occasions where it returns nil and it's quite stubborn too, eg a reloadUI does not help. When I say "situations" I mean straight up one or more mobs, happily melee-ing them, but it returns nil. I am not sure what's up with it. Any ideas?

Try this.
Lua Code:
  1. local function InMeleeRange(unit)
  2.     local guid = UnitGUID(unit)
  3.     return guid and select(2, CanLootUnit(guid))
  4. end

A bit late reply, I have started using this today and so far seems to work! But so did the IsSpellInRange for months/years before it decides to stop working ...

If you want to continue using IsSpellInRange on a paladin, use Crusader Strike. Zeal was a melee spell in Legion but it's now a passive talent (with a hidden 30yd range).
