Script elements include other WoW UI Lua files in an XML file and allow them to be processed on load inline, at the point of the include statement.

Example[edit | edit source]

<Ui xmlns="http://www.blizzard.com/wow/ui/"
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <Script file="MyFrame.lua"/>
  <Frame name="MyFrame">
    <Size x="200" y="200"/>
  </Frame>
</Ui>

This example demonstrates use of using Script to include a WoW UI Lua file. The included Lua file will be loaded at the point of the <Script> element during load.
