Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

^(.+) sold to ([A-Z][W'-]+) for (\d+) platinum!

Another thing I'm seeing is that newer entries won't sort on date. It looks like some of the entries are saving in a different order. Could that be causing that issue?

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

That didn't work for some reason. Changed to Auction: (.*) and it wouldn't capture. Right now my trigger is ^(.+)

Would there be an easy way to have it display how many items are in the table at the bottom of the print alias?

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

One small issue I am seeing. How can I get it to stop capturing my prompt at times? It doesn't do it often and I'm not sure what causes it.

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

I removed the [[ and ]] from the numbers and it works fine. Could this be the issue causing my new data to be added as a string?

"price = tonumber(price)"

change to:

"price = tonumber(v.price)"

??

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

Oh, I haven't merged any files yet, so I'm thinking it's saving as a string still.

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

I get that just on the price. The other options work fine. I ran that lua command to convert but it didn't take I guess.

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

I'm getting an "attempt to compare number with string" error on @aucdata price. Is that because I'm not storing price number?

Re: How to capture and store data (and view it via an alias)?

Hate to bug you again... I have two questions. How could I manually add an item (item, price, date, buyer) myself via an 'lua' command? Also, would it be a pain to merge auction_data.lua files? I play on my laptop and my tablet so I'd like to be able to merge the table from my tablet to my laptop ta...

That was it! Working now. I thought I copied the capture alias. Somehow I messed it up. Thanks, sorting working!
