Question Target's Portrait

Hello.

I am trying to add the Target's Portrait inside my addon.
To do this, I borrowed the code from InspectFrame.

It almost works but I get an error related to "self".

I am very new to addon development I am completely lost.
If someone could help me, I would appreciate a lot.


**removed**

See you.

This looks more like a try to advertise a spamsite.

Please don't say it's a spam when it's not..

2shared is just a file hosting website like rapidshare and so..
By the way, here is the rapidshare link .. since you seem to dislike 2shared.. **removed**

Here is the code of this addon :
TOC : http://pastebin.com/cjSwwN8X
XML : http://pastebin.com/UTtSiJNk
TestPortrait.lua : http://pastebin.com/Qp3WdwBT
Test.Lua : http://pastebin.com/6nHaMdgc


Thank you.

Following your first link I was not able to find a download with all the blinking spam.

Looking at your code you call your scriptfiles at least twice.
Once in the toc and once it the xml ... you should remove one call.

For your 3 "self" errors ... search the three calls of the functions that
throw the error in testPortrait.lua ... all three are called from your xml without
the self argument.

Thanks for the hints Rilgamon, I'll remove one of them.

Oh, sorry, sorry. I didn't know.
So now, nobody's going to help me ? Even though I added codes on pastebin..

pastebin links are fine. But we cannot vouch for the security of downloads from external sites, hence the rule.

/edit: pastebin (or similar) links are actually great - because then we can see line numbers and someone else can put up a reply to your code.

We're here to help where we can ... but following links to uncertain destination
is dangerous these days. It's not your fault that the net is like it is

Similar post layouts can be done here as well if you use the [highlight=lua] wrapper around your code.

Example:
lua Code:
  1. local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
  2. f:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, ...) if f[event] then return f[event](self, event, ...) end end)
  3. f:RegisterEvent("ADDON_LOADED")
  4. f:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")
  5. f:RegisterEvent("UNIT_EXITED_VEHICLE")
  6. f:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_TALENT_CHANGED")
  7. f:Show()

This is true, but if you're code is lengthy (or contains long lines), then pastebin or pastey is still better.
