About Bagnon_AccountSearch

I love Bagnon because it is nice and small and has all the functionality i need. Except 2 things actually.

  1. A saved Guild Bank feature ... which i implemented now. (with restrictions)
  2. An account wide search function, so i dont have to scroll through all the bags if i want to find the item i need

I spoke with Tuller and he said that an account wide function is not on his list of plans and he said its ok if i program a little addon that does the trick. The Guild Bank function was considered but i spoke with Jaliborc who is kinda the main programmer/ maintainer for Bagnon now and he said it's not a high prioriy for him because if he would implement it, he wants to do it right with a data sharing function which will be a lot of work.

So i did a quick version, which means there are certain restrictions, which to overcome would require a lot of programming as stated above. The restrictions are as follow :

  • Of course the data from the guild bank, meaning items and your access rights to the tab can change at any time without the addon knowing it, so the search will only be as good as the age of the data that is provided.
  • If you open the guild bank, only the data for the tab you currently are watching will be loaded into wow cache meaning, if you want to refresh all data saved you have to go manually through all the tabs. there seems to be some function to query the data, but i could not find any good documentation on that.
  • The guild bank itself will not be displayed "offline" - the search function uses the last know content but doesnt display the guild bank in any way. So if you click through the locations it will not open a guild bank, but rather only say in the message box what is avail in guild bank.
  • As the display of VoidStorage is not in Bagnon it cannot be displayed as well, but of course this addon will search your void storage and also list it in the tooltip

Since people requested it i added a few additonal functions but i didn't want to add a configuration dialog so it is just done with command lines. The two command lines available are /bas or /bacc, the options are as follows :

  • help - shows all available help
  • simple - toggles simple mode meaning, if you have simple mode on you DON'T have to shift click the button to do an account wide search, it will always be showing (this means doing a regular bag search ONLY is disabled)
  • guild - if guild is set active the search will be only in your guilds Guild Bank, otherwise more guild banks can be searched.
  • faction - if you have guild OFF and multiple banks can be searched it will only access those on your realm, but with this you can configure if you want only same faction guild banks to be searched or also cross faction guild banks.

Ofc this is totally dependend on Bagnon and here is the link to the main addon :

It provides the following functions.

  • Shift+Click the normal search button at any time and the account search frame will open showing you all the items found account wide
  • The tooltip will show you were your items are located as it is a provided functionality by Bagnon itself (this addon adds guild bank items as well now)
  • You can additionally click the items in the search frame and it will open up the bags where it found the stuff, repeated clicks will cycle through all locations
  • Ctrl+Click the search button will toggle between all possible attachment positions
  • Use the slash command /bas or /bacc to immediatley open the Bagnon window and the account search and start typing
  • Now also has a keybind added for the immediate account search under the bagnon keybinds
  • Alt+Click the search button to toggle between the search listing items you have permission to withdraw from guild bank or not (the frame border will be red if you have restricted the search to pages you can access only and green if tabs are also searched which you cannnot access)
  • The tooltip will also now show the items available in guild bank, if you are searching through all tabs it will split the items into avail and unavail, so you can see which of the listed items you can actually get from your guild bank and which ones you cannot

Know problems :

  • if you use a keybind for opening the search frame that is used for typing searches then it will actually go in the search frame upon activation. i personally dont have a problem with that because i use F12 for that search. i tried to eliminate the problem but couldn't find a way to do so, if someone has trouble with it and knows a solution please PM me, thanks

I released this version pretty quick as a release version because i want all people who have Bagnon with Bagbrother to get it right away. Still there can be of course bugs in the release versions, feel free to mail or message me, thanks.

Planned :

  • i want to add localization next since i added a few command lines and they should be localized, so that will come soonish

    Just downloaded this addon, actually just now. When I log in and check my addon folder it says "out of date" even though I just downloaded it. And even when I try loading out of date addons it still doesn't work, and from the other comments I see here a lot of people are having the same problem. For future reference make sure your addons actually work before releasing them =]. Thank you

  • #34

    PLEASE I BEG YOU MAKE A 5.0.5 VERSION! I have Bagnon but the search doesn't work I don't know why. PLEASE man I will love you if you make a 5.0.5 version

  • #33

    please, can you fix this addon for now?

  • #31

    hmm, havnt played wow in quite some time, if i have / get a free week ... i will check it out and fix it, hopefully.

  • #32

    thanks Smuggles! :)

  • #30

    now an issue exists where once you have searched for something, the search area pops up everytime you re-open your bag.

  • #29

    I'm surprised more people haven't "Liked" this addon. Thank you very much for creating such a useful addon that extends the usability of an already awesome addon, Bagnon.

    unfortunately with 5.4, i seem to be getting an issue where everything that displays from a search is highlighted blue, making them difficult to see. Thanks again Smuggles for the great work!

    Thanks you for the addon, it's very useful.

    I wonder if it is possible to add more searching options (for instance search all the Binds on account items through all characters or all helms, etc) or would it be too much work?

    I mean the syntax already used by bagnon:



  • #28

    hmm, didnt even know some special syntax existed, i guess i can have a look into it and implement some of it if i figure it out Smile

    Love the Bagnon addon Smile

    Missed one feature that I thought this addon would fix. I have 3 personal guild banks (bank alts), and a "guild" guild bank I want to be able to search for items. After testing this, I found that the Items from guild banks that show up in tool tip or the search, are only from the last guild bank you visited.

    Am I correct or have I missed a setting or something?

    Altoholic was great for this purpose, but it always gave me errors/bugs as it track just about everything.

  • #25

    ok, the version with multiple guild banks is up, i didnt test it extensively, but it should work, you might have to configure with command lines how you want your banks to be searched, have fun.

    hmm, thats kinda true, i only save one guild bank, and its the last one you visit ... a character only has access to one guild bank, thats the reason why i do this.

    but actually i got a guild bank with all my little helpers as well, didnt think about that yet, lets see if i can implement something that makes sense.

  • #21

    Would you consider/is it possible to make the search bar search the current bag and your whole account at the same time instead of the shift click thing?

  • #26

    i added a simple version now, if you set it to simple with the command line it will always do an account wide search with just a button press, no shift needed any more.

  • #17

    hmm, will take a look into this soonish, thx for the report
