Sets the text displayed in the font string using format specifiers. Equivalent to :SetText(string.format("format", value)), but does not create a throwaway Lua string object, resulting in greater memory-usage efficiency.

 FontString:SetFormattedText("format" [, arg1, arg2, ... ])

Arguments

format 
String - A string containing format specifiers (as with string.format()).
arg 
A list of values to be included in the formatted string.

Example

The following snippet does set MyFontString to players attackspeed with 2 decimals.

local mhSpeed, ohSpeed = UnitAttackSpeed("player");
fontString:SetFormattedText("%.2f", mhSpeed)


The following code is to show that its possible to switch :SetText with :SetFormattedText

fontString:SetFormattedText("Hello World")
