CombatLogGetCurrentEventInfo

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Returns the current COMBAT_LOG_EVENT payload.

arg1, arg2, ... = CombatLogGetCurrentEventInfo()
      eventInfo = {CombatLogGetCurrentEventInfo()}

Returns

  • Returns a variable number of parameters: 11 base parameters and up to 13 extra parameters.

Details

  • In the new event system for 8.0, supporting the original functionality of the CLEU event was problematic due to the "context" arguments, i.e. each argument can be interpreted differently depending on the previous arguments. The payload was subsequently moved to this function. [1]

Examples

  • Prints all CLEU parameters.
local function OnEvent(self, event)
	print(CombatLogGetCurrentEventInfo())
end

local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
f:RegisterEvent("COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED")
f:SetScript("OnEvent", OnEvent)
  • Displays your spell or melee critical hits.
local playerGUID = UnitGUID("player")
local MSG_CRITICAL_HIT = "Your %s critically hit %s for %d damage!"

local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
f:RegisterEvent("COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED")
f:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event)
	-- pass a variable number of arguments
	self:OnEvent(event, CombatLogGetCurrentEventInfo())
end)

function f:OnEvent(event, ...)
	local timestamp, subevent, _, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, sourceRaidFlags, destGUID, destName, destFlags, destRaidFlags = ...
	local spellId, spellName, spellSchool
	local amount, overkill, school, resisted, blocked, absorbed, critical, glancing, crushing, isOffHand

	if subevent == "SWING_DAMAGE" then
		amount, overkill, school, resisted, blocked, absorbed, critical, glancing, crushing, isOffHand = select(12, ...)
	elseif subevent == "SPELL_DAMAGE" then
		spellId, spellName, spellSchool, amount, overkill, school, resisted, blocked, absorbed, critical, glancing, crushing, isOffHand = select(12, ...)
	end

	if critical and sourceGUID == playerGUID then
		local action = spellId and GetSpellLink(spellId) or MELEE
		print(MSG_CRITICAL_HIT:format(action, destName, amount))
	end
end
