Details Edit

Shows the Spellbook. Equivalent to pressing 'P'. Note that if you do not have any pet spells, passing in "pet" will do nothing.
If you want to open the spellbook using Lua, don't use this, use ToggleFrame(SpellBookFrame) instead.
However both ToggleFrame(SpellBookFrame) and ToggleSpellBook("spell") will not execute successfully while in combat using Lua due to AddOn Taint unless the Spell Book was previously opened during the same game session.
