PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

421 - Visual heal

I´m having problems with Visual heal and couldnt find anyone with similar problem :/
it´s active on all my unitframes(self, target, target´s target and raid)
quite often (but couldn´t find any regularitys and it disapears without reason aswell) outgoing heals are displayed much "longer" then they should because theres a white (no matter what colors i choose in the options) bar of fixed lenght before the heal bar itself.
with fixed length i mean that thar bar seems to be the same lengh on my raid and self unitframe eventhough my own unitframe is about two times the size of my raid unitframes

What version of the product are you using?
up to r20090604044858-nolib

Do you have an error log of what happened?

    I confirm it is still happening in 4.0.1 with the new VisualHeal implementation.

    Conditions required to trigger the issue:
     - Enable "Health deficit" toggle on your frames. The issue only happen on frames with this setting set, but can be triggered by healing any frame.
     - The bug triggers from both HOTs and direct heals
     - There seems to be a state the frames enter that cause this to happen. I do not know what triggers this state, but it could be related to other people healing. I am unable to trigger this issue alone in a closed testing environment.

    So I just did a ToC Heroic.
    The bug did not appear while solo-healing myself in Ogrimmar after logging on
    The bug did not appear prior to mounting up in ToC, despite trying lots of possible heal combinations
    The bug did not appear while we were mounted (I dismounted on purpose and healed a bit to try)
    The bug did appear the moment we left the mounts. I believe this was when the paladin was healing himself (he took some damage in the mount phase), but I am not quite sure. From there on, random bars started appearing on random frames for the rest of the instance.
    It seems to be a state toggle on the frames that enables this behavior - after the white bars have been enabled, it keeps on like that for that frame until something toggles it again. I do not know what triggers it.
    The bug state persisted on my player frame after finishing the instance.
    The white bars only last for as long as there are incoming heals.
    Doing a /reloadui cleared the issue

    Exhibit A: After finishing the mount phase.
    Exhibit B: After finishing the heroic.

    Anyone see this happening in 4.0.x with the new VisualHeal implementation?

    Nahh I've seen it myself before and I've never had theAuraBar module installed. I just haven't been able to replicate it in a very long time.

    VisualHeal will be rewritten for Cata anyway since LibHealComm will be obsolete.

    I did some testing on this issue this evening and I think this problem may be caused a conflict with the Pitbull4_AuraBar addon. Are any of the other people who are getting this problem also using this addon?

    For me, the issue appears to be linked to the threat bar. While instance healing, if I gained aggro or took a whack at a mob running past me (both of which would target the mob and introduce the threat bar to my player frame), I would then start to experience the multi-colored, over-extended visual heal bar others have described.

    So far, disabling the threat bar on my player unit frame appears to have fixed it.

    What happens to be now and again: In a group or raid (maybe solo'ing, but I don't heal myself that often then), sometimes when I cast a heal, my own health bar or the one of my party/raid member will:

    (1) Extend way past what is reasonable. This is not an overheal amount, but much more so. It's not even when I'm overhealing. The bar will extend out well over 2x the width of the bar normally.

    (2) Be muti-colored. The bar will be white and green.

    If I'm casting a healing-over-time spell, the bar stays super long and obscuring until the HoT fades. I need to let it drop off to make it go away.

    Is there any fix to this? Is it possible something else is conflicting with pitbull that is causing this to happen?

    I forgot to mention, i did produce this once on my druid 30 min ago on latest pitbull4 while i was not grouped. Then i did a /reloadui and it went away.

    Is it possible for you guys to temporary write a module that would record all specific data that performs overheal visual in pitbull?

    I used to have something similar done for when i used to write in mIRC. Example of what i am asking is:

    echo -s Enter random 2
    IF ($len($nick) < 4) { return $false }
    echo -s Enter random 2 a
    IF $regex($nick,[-_`^]|[0-9]|[A-Z]|oo|\[|\]) { return }
    echo -s Enter random 2 b
    each time a check was made, i echoed right after to see which part was triggering the "halt".

    I don't have a problem running even if it is a heavy mod. When ever this error gets produced, i will close wow, copy the debug file, and mail it to you guys for analyzing.

    Confirming that this is still happening with the latest version of pb4, although it seemed to only happen when grouped for me - no amount of spamming could replicate it when I was alone. I didn't have time to stop and try to analyse the issue while it was happening, as I was attempting to heal at the time!
