1. Great book, really enjoyed it. Inspired me to try my own hand at addons but have run into a problem (:p)

    I have been trying to use the blizz Cooldown frame,  but haven't been able to find too much about it either from the book or the internet. It seems easy enough to use EXCEPT for one problem.

    This is the background. While levelling a death knight, I really liked the RunePack addon, but decided to add a couple of things to it to make it work even better for me. One was the ability to click on the runes directly to cast spells (done), another was to change the color of the rune frames to reflect the target debuffs (so I wouldn't have to look at a DOT timer quite as much- also done).

     

    Here is what I've got working so far (props to the original author of the RunePack addon):

    I am struggling with the third bit of what I'd like to be able to do now. I am trying to make the runes show the global cooldown using the Cooldown frame object (the "sweeping clockface" animation). However, the image used to depict runes is a circular button - the problem is that the cooldown animation seems to assume a square frame. I can't find any way of masking the cooldown animation so that it is limited to the circular area of the rune.  I know it can be done (since I see it in the addon ButtonFacade).

    Confused? A video here is, I am sure, worth a thousand words:

    I've tried every combination of frame level and frame strata I could think of to try and make this work without success.

    Once again, great book. Any help you could give on this endeavour you inspired would be much appreciated :p
