frame names

May 6, 2008 at 4:25 AM
ok, ill try to break this down as best as really new with Lua and have never really been all that great with any programming language so help would be appreciated.

i have created an addon that is a single frame (the frame name was the default one when you create a new project with warcraft addon studio). I have a button that closes the frame.
i also created another addon that i am using for testing new features for the actual addon im making. the frame name is the same as the other addon.

now the problem i am having is that when i use frame1:Hide(); on my main addon it closes the frame from my testing addon but not my main addon.

I tried changing the name of my main addons frame to something different (its called wpmframe) but when i did that the addon just stopped working altogether.

so afterwards i created a new addon and right away renamed the frame to something else. when i did that and double clicked on the frame (to create the _OnLoad(); function) i got this error: object reference not set to an instance of an object.

so, basically what i am wondering is can i change the frames names and if i can how do i do it so that i wont get that error, or if not, then how can i make it so that when i use functions specifically for my addon so that it wont affect any other addons.

Please help me!!!
