233 - Skillet Window Won't Open/Doesn't Work-Error

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. When I attempt to open the Trade Skill Window (any), nothing from Skillet opens up; all I get is an error message.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect to open my professions menu, click on a profession, and see the Skillet box open up. Instead, I am receiving an error message and no box.

What version of the product are you using?
I have MoP, with newest Patch 5.2, which just came out today.

Do you have an error log of what happened?

    Just wanted to say "Thank you" for the updated fix to Skillet. :) Much appreciated - seems to be working perfectly again! :D

    Looks like this bug has already been fixed by yossa, but regarding what Speedwaystar posted below, if you use that code somewhere, be sure you're not polluting the global table (what I use in my addon is slightly different and doesn't pollute).

    temporary fix/kludge

    open SkilletData.lua in your favourite code editor and scroll to line 2032, which reads:

        local reagentLink = API.GetReagentlink(i,j)

    delete or comment out this line, and replace it with:

        tooltip = CreateFrame("GameTooltip", "SkilletDataScanTooltip", UIParent, "GameTooltipTemplate")
        tooltip:SetOwner(UIParent, "ANCHOR_NONE")
        _, reagentLink = tooltip:GetItem()

    kudos to sapu94 (the author of TradeSkillManager) for this fix

    I get the following error when trying to open skillet:

    Concur with this. Just finished MoP 5.2 upgrade and logged in WoW, no trade skill windows work with r307, similar error message.

    My apologies- for the question of "Which version are you using?", I may have misunderstood the question. I downloaded your newest update, revision 307 of Skillet, for the newest 5.2 Patch of MoP. Thank you.
