    posted a message on HeadCount - Raid attendance and loot tracker
    Seppyk-

    I love using this addon, it is very useful and informative. Might I suggest a few enhancements:

    1. The phpBB export format works well as links. I was wondering if you could provide export options for a format that you provide. For example the phpBB format may have an option that would be "Enable Hover-Over Tooltips". By doing so the export format would change from using a url to using the following format in your Exporter.lua:94:


    exportString = exportString .. "[item]" .. lootName .. "[/item] by " .. v:getPlayerName() .. "\n"
    <endcode>

    2. It would also be nice if you had general export options regardless of the format selected, that would allow you to enable/disable all or certain boss and player details.

    3. Finally, I love the exclusion list, but I had to read the forums to figure out how to use it. It would be neat if HeadCount gave the ability to right-click an item and add it to the exclusion list. Performing this action could also clean up the current active raid of that particular item. Throwing in a frame for exclusion management would be a nice touch with this.

    I love the addon and will continue to use it. I was just wanting to provide some input on maybe some future development ideas and suggestions if you are taking any. :)

    Haha ok, sure no problem. I scoured for 2-3 hours last night wowwiki api and did a few of the Ace2 tutorials. I would think that would help me get started in the right direction, but those references did not answer the questions you just did for me.

    So I won't post anymore, but it seems nearly impossible to find details on how to manipulate existing blizzard frames. Rather creating your own instead (Which I have done tutorials with).

    Thanks. A few follow up questions:

    1. How do you determine the events that are related to that frame or region then?
    2. Also I saw something interesting done with a function. This seems like a Blizzard function, that is being inherited or overridden?

    See the code below for both questions:

    --
    local old_PVPTeam_Update = PVPTeam_Update
    function PVPTeam_Update(...)
    old_PVPTeam_Update(...)
    <...code...>
    end

    Ok so I am starting slow. I have done the Ace2 tutorials and I have convereted one of the current Ace2 addons in the recommended structure. I have a few questions though. It seems there are alot of embedded functions. Very hard to follow. Currently I am looking at changing information found in frames.

    For example, say I would like to change the "Arena Team Name" label on the PvP tab of the Character Panel. How would I go about determining what Frame and Region name related to this object? I have seen in various Addons the end result...but how did those developers figure it out? I have scoured the WoW API and Widget API to no avail. Can anyone shed some light?
