LibFlash-Rift
Version: v1.2.1
by: starlon [More]
This library is implemented based on the design of WoW's UIFlash and UIFade functions.

LibFlash implements frame fading and flashing.

All durations are in seconds format, so 0.3 is equal to 300 milliseconds.

Usage:
local LibFlash = LibStub("LIbFlash")
local frame = CreateFrame("Frame")
-- do things to the frame so it'll display
local background = LibFlash:New(frame)
background:FadeIn(.3, 0, 1)

Methods:

LibFlash:New(frame)
@argument frame The frame that will have its alpha manipulated.
@return A new LibFlash object.
Description: Create a new LibFlash object.

LibFlashel()
@return None
Description: Recycles a LibFlash object.

LibFlash:FadeIn(dur, start, finish, callback, data)
@argument dur Number - The fade's duration.
@argument start Number - The starting alpha value.
@argument end Number - The ending alpha value.
@argument callback Function - You can specify a function to be called when the fade in is finished.
@argument data Unknown - This will be passed to the callback function when it's called.
@return None
Description: Fade this object's target frame starting with 'start' alpha and ending with 'finish' alpha.

LibFlash:FadeOut(dur, start, finish, callback, data)
@argument dur Number - The fade's duration.
@argument start Number - The starting alpha value.
@argument end Number - The ending alpha value.
@argument callback Function - You can specify a function to be called when the fade in is finished.
@argument data Unknown - This will be passed to the callback function when it's called.
@return None
Description: Fade this object's target frame starting with 'start' alpha and ending with 'finish' alpha.

LibFlash:Flash(fadeInTime, fadeOutTime, flashDuration, showWhenDone, flashInHoldTime, flashOutHoldTime, shouldBlink, blinkRate, callback, data )
@argument fadeInTime Number - duration of the fade in effect.
@argument fadeOutTime Number - duration of the fade out effect.
@argument flashDuration Number - number of seconds to keep repeating the fade in / out cycle.
@argument showWhenDone Boolean - should the frame be visible at the end?
@argument flashInHoldTime Number - number of seconds to hold the fully hidden state.
@argument flashOutHoldTime Number - number of seconds to hold the fully visible state.
@argument shouldBlink Boolean - Should this alarm blink

As far as how to use this, check out StarTip-Rift's use of the library. You'll find it in StarTip.lua in tooltipMain:FadeOut(). I'm only making use of Fade() though.
I see that in there, but I just don't understand lol... I wish I did, because if this does what I have always wanted frames on the UI to do, then I definitely want it to work, but when put it in the AddOns folder it does nothing in game at all... and I don't know why.
