WeakAuras 2

35 - Specific auras blow up Weak Auras on relog

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a group of three (specific) auras dealing with in-game events
2. Relog
3. Addon explodes
4. Fixing addon requires excising the auras from WeakAuras.lua (savedvariable)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
A group of three auras. Instead, upon logging in, *all* auras are displayed with question mark icons and all text fields reading ERROR. The aura list displays almost no auras, and none can be changed.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?
No log

Please provide any additional information below.

Prepare for spam. The auras are SUPPOSED to use Combat Log entries and events to track and display the ICD of Blade of the Hundred Steps, the Tank buff on Spoils. This is the second time I've created this aura group, with the same results each time. Breakdown of each of the three auras follows.


    Trigger Combat Log, Spell damage, Blade of the Hundred Steps

    Custom Hide 15s

WA_Blade_Proc = true

WA_Blade_Proc = nil


    Trigger Custom Status Event(s) WA_BLADE_DAMAGE
    (Trigger 2, Simple Aura: Blade of the Hundred Steps)
    Custom Trigger: function() return WA_Blade_Proc end
    Custom Untrigger: function() return not WA_Blade_Proc end
    Custom Duration: 15
WA_Blade_CD = nil

WA_Blade_CD = True


    Trigger Custom Status Event(s) WA_BLADE_READY
    (Trigger 2, Simple Aura: Blade of the Hundred Steps)
Custom Trigger: function() return WA_Blade_CD end
Custom Untrigger: function() return not WA_Blade_CD end

    Sorry for not responding faster. The reason those auras lead to unrecoverable errors is likely that you call WeakAuras.ScanEvents() manually in your on show and on hide actions. These functions are also called on opening the options dialog. That shouldn't break the options dialog, but calling those functions is inherently unsupportable. Still if you have those auras exported to a string, I'd take a look on why exactly that leads to problems. Having them in the lua text format isn't as convenient to import.
