1. Hi there, I am new to addon creating, I edited remaked 1addon, which shows raid readiness by counting their flasks, scrolls, etc which shows after pressing /command and I was wondering if I can make a "history" for it.

    toc file:

     ## Interface: 30100
     ## Version: 0.3 ; 3.3.5 Now
     ## Title: CheckForConsumables
     ## Author: Taneroth <EU Khadgar> ; Fixed by Zereges
     ## Notes: Checks if raid is using flasks / elixirs, scrolls food buffs. Also if raid is full possibly buffed.
     ## SavedVariables: ChechForConsumables
     CheckForConsumables.xml
    

    xml file:

     <Ui xmlns="http://www.blizzard.com/wow/ui/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.blizzard.com/wow/ui/
     ..\FrameXML\UI.xsd">
        <Script file="CheckForConsumables.lua"/>
        <Frame name="ConsumablesFrame" toplevel="true" frameStrata="LOW" enableMouse="true" parent="UIParent">
     <Scripts>
     <OnLoad>
     CFC_OnLoad();
     </OnLoad>
     </Scripts>
     </Frame>
     </Ui>
    

    parts of lua file:

     function CFC_OnLoad()
        SLASH_CFC1 = "/cfc";
        SlashCmdList["CFC"] = CFC_RaidCheck;
    
        if (DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME) then
            DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage('CheckForConsumables: AddOn Loaded.');
        end;
     end;
    
     function CFC_RaidCheck()
     ...
     blah blah blah
     ...
     SendChatMessage("Summary: About "..string.format("%.2f", RaidReadiness).."% raid is prepared.", "RAID");
    
     CFC_SaveHistory();
    
     function CFC_SaveHistory()
       HistoryFolder[] = {
        ["Time"] = {date("%H:%M:%S %m.%d.%Y")},
        ["Basic Info"] =  {"Zone: "..myZone..", "..aoizCount.."/"..GetNumRaidMembers()"."},
        ["List of Members"] = {tmpEverybody},
        ["Missing Flask or Elixir"] = {tmpConsumables}, 
        ["Missing Scroll"] = {tmpScroll}, 
        ["Missing Well Fed"] = {tmpWellFed}, 
        ["Missing Rum"] = {tmpRum},
        ["Raid Readiness"] =  {string.format("%.2f", RaidReadiness)}
     }
     end;
    

    myZone, aoizCount, tmp*, RaidReadiness are defined. Would this work? Id like addon to save this info to World of Warcraft\WTF\Account*\SavedVariables\CheckForConsumables.lua in format like

     HistoryFolder1 = {
     ["Time"] = {date("%H:%M:%S %m.%d.%Y")},
     ["Basic Info"] =  {"Zone: Dalaran, 1/2."},
     ["List of Members"] = {Name1, Name2},
     ["Missing Flask or Elixir"] = {}, 
     ["Missing Scroll"] = {Name1}, 
     ["Missing Well Fed"] = {Name1}, 
     ["Missing Rum"] = {Name2},
     ["Raid Readiness"] =  {50%}
     }
    

    and after /cfc again it add new "line" with HistoryFolder2 and so on

    You don't really ask any questions. Saved variables are just tables that are stored to disk in-between WoW sessions. If you want to store a history, you can do something like this:

    1. Add ## SavedVariables: CheckForConsumablesHistory to your table of contents file.
    2. Now, the contents of this global variable will be saved when the player reloads the user interface or disconnects. It will be reloaded at some stage when the player is logging back in.

    For what you want, the best thing is probably to just add the new history entries like this:

     function AddHistory(tbl)
       if not CheckForConsumablesHistory then
         CheckForConsumablesHistory = {}
       end
    
       table.insert(CheckForConsumables, tbl)
     end
    

    Where tbl is just the data table you show at the end of your question (or whatever). Then, you can access hese history entries usng CheckForConsumablesHistory[1], CheckForConsumablesHistory[2] or iterate over them by using ipairs(CheckForConsumablesHistory).

    If you have a more specific question, I can try to answer it.

    Well, I added ## SavedVariables: CheckForConsumablesHistory to my toc file.

    and I replaced my previous function with this:

     funcion blah blah
       CFC_SaveHistory(tbl);
     end;
    
     function CFC_SaveHistory(tbl)
     local tbl = {
        ["Time"] = {date("%H:%M:%S %m.%d.%Y")},
        ["Basic Info"] = {"Zone: "..myZone..", "..aoizCount.."/"..GetNumRaidMembers()"."},
        ["List of Members"] = {tmpEverybody},
        ["Missing Flask or Elixir"] = {tmpConsumables}, 
        ["Missing Scroll"] = {tmpScroll}, 
        ["Missing Well Fed"] = {tmpWellFed}, 
        ["Missing Rum"] = {tmpRum},
        ["Raid Readiness"] = {string.format("%.2f", RaidReadiness)}
     }
       if (not CheckForConsumablesHistory) then
        CheckForConsumablesHistory = {};
       end;
       table.insert(CheckForConsumables, tbl)
     end;
    

    but when i press /cfc it didnt make anything. What have I done wrong?

    What do you want it to do? It'll add the entry to the table? What are you expecting to happen?

    Normally it shows who has not flask/scroll/well fed and I want to add that people also to SavedVariables (like history) after I fire /command (it cyckles through raid members, and their buffs, shows who hasnot flask/scroll/well fed/.. and counts readiness of raid and I want to save history of it (like table), so I press command, it does its job and saves it to savedvariables as 1st save. Then I press it once more again, it again shows readiness, and again save itself to savedvariables as entry2 and so on.

     Entry 1
     Date: xx/xx/xxxx xx:xx:xx
     Players in raid: xxxx
     Flask missing: people swithout flask
     Raid readiness: blah blah
    

    Then the code you've written should work. Saved variables are not saved until you reload the user interface or log out. They absolutely will not be written to disk immediately. I'm not entirely sure what the problem is.
