Thread: Weak Aura Communication

  1. #1

    Default Weak Aura Communication

    How can we make variables that would enable two people with the same or similar weak auras to communicate? I assume there is some way to share variables between two players, since other addons have the capability to interact with other players version. Is there a way to send variables to others through custom lua code in a custom text function, or something similar?

    The other option that I don't know if Blizz allows is for addons to declare custom events that an addon can throw and catch. This would probably be beyond my abilities if so.

    Default

    For anyone who finds this, addons communicate through a chat channel, just like players do. We just don't see the messages. Here is a link to the function you would need:

    Be sure to register to receive the event, and also to add the prefix of the message you want to receive.
