Tooltip scaling and tooltip addons like Tiptac
It is recommended the tooltip scaling in BE not to use, if you use other tooltip addons like tiptac. It can lead to truncated texts in tooltip.
For Iconsets and Localization
I have add some php scripts. the script generates the 3 example files for iconset and localization. I will try to use the php script in this folder to keep all examples up to date... :)

    Does the "Use global profile" checkbox actually do anything? I've checked it, yet nothing seems to syncronize across any of my characters. I'm I misunderstanding something?

    Clickable tooltip...
    i've try to reduce the use of clickable elements in tooltips because it is sometimes to hard to close the tooltips if you leave it with the mouse and i've played with the idea to handle equipment sets in same way as professions.

    fishing blocked...
    thank you for reporting this problem. i'll fix it soon.

    10 seconds hiccups...
    i've already suspected the memory module but no options to remove the hiccup.

    greetings Hizuro

    damned denouncer... it is writte by blizzard (secure/taint-system) and randomly slaps innocent addons...  -.-

    OK, More user feedback for you.  It's about plugin behavior consistency.

    I've got two of your Broker_Everything plugins in my Bazooka bar, side by side.  They are "Equipment" and "Professions".  I've been using the Equipment plugin for months now to easily switch between my gear sets.  I'm accustomed to the way that plugin works... mouse over the icon and the click the equipment set directly from the tooltip.  It's nice and easy to use.

    But right next to it is the Professions plugin.  When I mouse over, it shows a tooltip that lists all my professions.  but clicking this tooltip does nothing.  I instead must click the icon in the broker bar, which then hides the tooltip and opens a separate dropdown menu that I can then click to open up the professions window.

    Why not make this Professions plugin (and perhaps the Tracking plugin also) work the same way as Equipment.  Get rid of the need to click the icon and get rid of the extra dropdown menu. Make it so that all you have to do is hover over the icon then mouse down to the items in the tooltip's list and then click.

    I reaally like this addon btw.  Thanks for all the great work youve done to provide this to the WoW community!

  • #140

    I found another issue.  Its the "Professions" plugin. I click on Fishing in the dropdown menu and I get the dreaded "Broker_Everything has been blocked from an action available only to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI". 

  • #139

    OK... about my last comment about the "10 second hiccup".  I found the culprit!  It's your Memory module.

    I suspected that something was running on some kind of polling interval, so I did a search for "interval" in your code.  I then looked for anything that might have a value of 10.  And here's what came up...

    Find 'interval' in 'D:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Broker_Everything\modules\memory.lua':
    D:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Broker_Everything\modules\memory.lua(61):  updateinterval = 10,
    Found 'interval' 1 time(s).

    So, I went into your addon's new fancy preference screen and disabled just the memory module and did the same test of watching for a glitch in my framerate.  The glitch was gone.  When I turned the memory module back on, the pause every 10 seconds returned.

    I have LOTS of addons.  And it turns out that the more addons one has, the longer and more noticable this 10-second glitch is.  When it's just Broker_Everything by itself, the glitch is hardly noticable.  But when you have an addon environment that includes all sorts of major components like PitBull, Dominos, ArkInventory, Raven, Gatherer, Quartz, DBM, etc etc then it really does cause this hiccup to become quite noticable.

    I don't know what you can do about it to fix it.  But definitely, the Memory addon causes a stutter in framerates every 10 seconds.

    Is this addon doing something on a 10-second interval?  Because I've noticed a slight hiccup/stutter in my framerate when this addon is loaded.  Every 10 seconds, I get a very brief pause in my screen.  I sat next to a moving object in the world and watched it with a clock running.  And sure enough, every 10 seconds it was jitter and pause.  It's very brief, very minor.  But annoying as all heck once you realize it's happening.

    I unloaded everything except this addon and Bazooka just to test this, and the hiccup was still there.  I take out this addon and it goes away.

    I get this error with any version above 2.9 Final 2. If I roll back to 2.9 Final 2 it works fine. Please help!

    It looks like this happens when my toon runs out of rested XP. Thanks!

    Merry Christmas and there is a new version under the Christmas tree.

    Whats new?

    1. I've replaced the old option panel to remove an outdated library.
    2. I've added to some modules the possibility to change mouse click usage on broker buttons and i will extend it to the other modules later.
    3. The garrison module checking your achievements and blueprints level3 item.
    4. I've extend the Equipment module to display your current equipment and check your enchantments if missing.
    5. and many many more ^^ (but less than I had originally planned )

    hey hizuro

    I really like this but am wondering if its possible to only show mail icon on new mail ?

    woud you consider adding an option to combing fps,latency, addon memory and such ? 

  • #134

    currently i have a problem with blizzard's HasNewMail() and other mail related function. all functions lie after the close of the post box.

    fps, latency and memory are separate modules and not combinable. the only was is to write a new module with all functionalities. my list of unfinished modules and ideas is so long... maybe...

    Okay, thank you for reporting Ztrust. It is a pity that it still does not work for all users, I will change the function.

    I've been working on the next version and still hope to implement as many ideas from my to-do list. I want to release the first beta version by the end of this week... So that I can then focus on FollowerLocationInfo again. :)

    greetings Hizuro
