I have a question that is related to modyfing blizzard frames.
I want to change the content of this frame http://wowka.cz/image/informace/chat/ss15.jpg
to also provide information on people on external voice chat like TS or Vent.
My addon already does this part, question is how to best display it here,
because i am not very familiar with the concept of tainting code and blizzard frames.
So which approaches are possible and prefferable?
1) hook the functions that provide the data to the frame
2) add addition widgets(buttons,tabs..) to the frame
3) completely replace the frame in game with my own implementation
Ok, thanks for explanation,
i that case i think i will just add another tab in the frame.
The catch here is this. Up to this point I had my addon configured that it didnt interfere with the blizz ingame voicechat - it didnt break it if anybody would want to use - even that it might sound higly unlikely :) as nobody uses ingame chat.
Problem is that I had to enable ingame voicechat to be able to measure microphone level. I am recording a loopback sound, but nothing prevents a user from joining an existing ingame channel. And I wont be able to determine if it was by design or by mistake ...in the end i am of the mind to chuck it out, has anybody heard of someone using the blizz voicechat?
Still I consider it a bad design...
