408 - Animations not carrying over into metaicons

I just started toying with animations and immediately noticed that animations aren't shown on metaicons. Since almost every icon I use is element of some metaicon this reduces the usefulness of animations greatly. Also the "screen: shake" animation appears to be highly unreliable. I can reliably get the "screen: flash" animation but as soon as I change to "screen: shake" nothing happens. I have only been able to trigger the animation once, so it doesn't seem to be entirely non-functional.

    @Cybeloras: Go

    I have two icons with the "activation border"-animation, yet the border is present on every other icon aswell.

    Are these icon animations that are carrying over? Or screen animations? It is intended, at least the way that I coded it, that only icon animations are inherited by meta icons. Screen animations will play whenever their event occurs from the icon that they are being triggered by, will play even if the icon is set to always hide, and will play even if the icon is not shown in a meta icon.

    That is strange, and certainly not intended. I will look into it.

    @Cybeloras: Go

    Animations now carry over regardless of wether the icon actually has priority in the metaicon. I'm sure there are users out there who appreciate that this works this way however in this instance I was actually looking for a way to only have the animation associated with the actual icon that triggers it.

    Should be good now.

    I know. But I need to figure out how I want to handle it.

    For screen shake, check out its tooltip. There are some blizz limitations.
