RaidBuffStatus

353 - It can not be hidden after combat starts

If one starts combat with it shown and 'auto hide in combat' is not used then one can not hide it manually. One could claim it's a feature but it's very unintuitive: it's "don't hide automatically in combat", it's not "never hide even I manually do it".

    I didn't look at the code but I assume the buttons are secure buttons since you can cast the buff by alt-clicking on it. Since secure buttons can't be manually hidden in combat, I assume that is the reason.

    Doh - I take it back. The LDB display click is an issue, but RBS is additionally ignoring toggle requests in combat:

    function RaidBuffStatus:ShowReportFrame()
            if (InCombatLockdown()) then
                    return
            end
            ShowUIPanel(RBSFrame)
    end
    
    function RaidBuffStatus:HideReportFrame()
            if (InCombatLockdown()) then
                    return
            end
            HideUIPanel(RBSFrame)
    end
    

    This is daniel's code, I assume he had a good reason for doing that?

    RBS's OnClick handler does not do anything special for combat vs no combat. However, some LDB display addons *do* ignore clicks during combat. That's probably what you're experiencing, and is something that needs to be changed in your LDB display (many have a setting for this).

    Also, to be honest I don't understand why it can't be fully manual:

    i.e. "If it is open then show it fully and do scans fully"

    "if it is closed do nothing and don't use any resources"

    or even more ideally:

    "autohide in combat and if I press it to open it shows it fully and does a full scan"
