I'm curious if what I've noticed is a bug or feature.
I make a default profile which I work with as a base for each class. When setting up my hunter profile (or any pet class) I happened to notice that the Pet Target unit frame in ElvUI is getting re-enabled every time I do a reload or zone. it does not matter if I've disabled all pet options within ElvUI or ElvUI hud, the pet target window continues to get reset to enabled.
Steps taken to troubleshoot:
I disabled all addons except ElvUI. Disabled the pet target unit frame and relogged. Frame remained disabled so it's not ElvUI causing the problem.
Enabled ElvUI hud along with ElvUI. Pet target unit frame is enabled and pops up during combat. Disabled the unit frame and reloaded ui. Frame was re-enabled.
Disabled the frame and quit out of wow.
Renamed the pettarget.lua file within the ElvUI Hud hierarchy and restarted WoW. The ElvUI pet target frame remained disabled.
Just to clarify - ElvUI Hud is causing ElvUI's pet target frame to remain enabled regardless of input.Posted 8 months ago - #1
I'm confused, is it your ElvUI Pet Target frame that is being re enabled or your ElvUI Hud Pet Target Frame that is being reenabled? Disabling ElvUI unit frames has no effect on the Hud, outside of if Hide Elv Unit Frames is checked for the Hud, that will disable various ElvUI unit frames on its own.
To disable the pet target frame:
/ec > Hud > Pet Target Hud > Uncheck Enable
If you still have the issue, that is definitely a bug and I will investigate.Posted 8 months ago - #2
Yea, I was confused about it as well. Even to the point where I wiped my cache and WTF folders and started over from scratch.
Let me try explaining a bit better.
With just the ElvUI addon enabled, go to /ec > unitframes > PetTarget Frame and uncheck Enabled
Reload the UI (it should remain unchecked)
Log out and enable ElvUI HUD
Log back in and you should notice that /ec > unitframes > PetTarget Frame is re-enabled without your input
Uncheck again and reload UI and it should re-enable itself once again.
As I said in the OP, you can rename or remove the pettarget.lua file from the HUD folder and not have the issue of it re-enabling the frame.
If you're still confused, maybe I can upload a screenshot somewhere.Posted 8 months ago - #3
Please do, the hud should only be disabling or re-enabling the pet target frame if you have checked or unchecked hide elv unitframes. If you have done that, I will find some way to work around that.Posted 8 months ago - #4
I was working on getting screenshots for this post when all hell broke loose. Apparently I had some file corruption going on and what I was seeing had nothing to do with your addon. As I was saying, the hell in this case happened to be generic error 132's which I didn't start getting until after I made this post. It just so happened that the strange behavior I was noticing was the pre-cursor to bigger issues.
Anyways, at this point let's just put it on hold since I did a reinstall of the game.
Thanks for your time.Posted 8 months ago - #5
