LibFlash

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

LibFlash implements frame fading and flashing. This library's methods are replacements for WoW's UIFlash and UIFade functions. The reason for this library is that those functions cause taint.

All durations are in seconds format, so 0.3 is equal to 300 milliseconds.

Usage:
local LibFlash = LibStub("LIbFlash")
local frame = CreateFrame("Frame")
-- do things to the frame so it'll display
local background = LibFlash:New(frame)
background:FadeIn(.3, 0, 1)
