Hi, is there a way to get the guildname of an NPC. Many NPCs are in guilds like "Hunter Trainer" how can ic get this Guildname. GetGuildInfo("target"); does not work, I tried this out.

Would be nice if someone can help me out.

Hi everyone

I have slowly begun a small gui framework, but i have a question i have not seen answered anywhere... so here comes...

Is there some way to create gui elements from LUA?

im thinking in the likes of

aNewFrameObject=Frame:new()

or

aButtonObjectChildOfSomeFrameObject=SomeFrame:CreateChild("button")

An alternative option could be if there was a way to manipulate the xml document structure from LUA

If this is the case it should be possible to make a wery nice framework with the use of LUA's metastructures for tabels.

So far im building my framework on psodo objects that needs to get the node type("Frame","Button",...) and name("MyAddonFrame","MyAddOnButton1","MyAddonButton2",...) on creation and these needs to correspond to the types and names used in the xml which is a lot of annoying double work so thats why i ask

(Ah... it seems Slouken is adding what i need to 1.10... )

HOWTOs

Would love it if all those tutorials were changed to HOWTOs with the tag so they are automaticly indexed. -AnduinLothar 20:20, 29 Jan 2006 (EST)

Total redesign

I've spent quite a while cleaning up the Interface Customization category and main page, and created a whole new design for the main page. Hope you people out there both like the looks of it AND find it more useful than the old one!

Ooh, sexy! ... Although, I would make the blue a bit darker, and give it a hint of a border. I won't make any changes to it yet as you're still working on it :) -- Kirkburn 17:39, 12 June 2006 (EDT)
Nice, though I find one idiom confusing unless you're expecting it... That is for the API's, having the 'bold' main page linkable, and then under it, linkable sub-pages, but not also listing the main page there so it's clear you can get there. I'd be inclined to go with "World of Warcraft API / API . Data Types . API Events" with both the title and API linking to the same place. Maybe that's just me. Flickering 17:44, 12 June 2006 (EDT)
Gah, nice catch. I hate that one myself, and now I went and did it. >.<   I'll fix it. --Mikk 18:14, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

Styling

ElusiveByte removed formatting from this page due to not looking good with Nostalgia skin. I propose a discussion takes place in Wowpedia talk:Village pump. Schmidt 22:57, 18 June 2006 (EDT)

I moved what discussion was here to the village pump as I had proposed earlier. Please proceed with the discussion there, since such formatting pervades the wiki. Schmidt 23:40, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

AddOns

Sorry Mikk, I didn't see the AddOns link already existed :) There should be some kind of link to the AddOns category, thought, I would've thought. If you were on IRC, I would have already asked :P -- Kirkburn 13:18, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

→ IRC then. --Mikk 13:21, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

Addon Tutorials

 Always declare your lua file prior to the xml in the toc so it's there before
 the xml calls the functions within.
