I actually have that book, and I've followed the examples, including the one myrrodin is referring to. It didn't work though, so I figured Blizzard changed some things since the book's printing (May 2008 ). Thanks for the links, Orion, I'll check them out.
I'm getting my feet wet writing addons and between the frustration and headbashing, it's been fun. I'm working on a simple unit frame addon, and so far I've done the player and target frames (missing right click dropdown menu). Anyway, what I primarily need help with is setting up the raid frames. I tried using SecureGroupHeaderTemplate, but tbh, I didn't really understand it. So, what's the best way to set up some really basic raid frames?
