1. Hi,

    I have a problem with an addon, maybe someone can help me with some hints. I have a function which needs about 100-300 ms with my PC and cable connection, this function results in a 100-300 ms interruption of WOW.

    Is there a way to make this function parallel or not blocking for the rest of wow?

    Best regards


    The short answer is no, but why does your function need time? That should never be the case in WoW's event-based programming API. What are you trying to accomplish?

    The function should do some statistik analysis of the players achivments when i mouseover the player... and the achivement functions needs some time...

    That's why there are events. You don't 'wait x seconds', you register for an event, register a callback function and then make a corresponding API call. This is all covered in the section of the book that discusses event-based programming.
