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... :)

    Update 'w6.0-v2.10-final3' has fixed this. =)

    I'm getting the following error but only on 2 of my 4 characters.  I use the same addons and same setup for all of them. The entire error with addons can be seen at pastebin. When the error occurs the following plugins don't load: Duelspec, FPS and Latency.  Many other plusing are greyed out as well.  On the characters that don't get the error everything is fine and all the plugins are usable.

    HELP!  Love this mod but since 6.1 I am getting quite a bit of addon spam :

    "VARIABLES_LOADED false false false"

    "PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD false false false" and

    "UPDATE_PENDING_MAIL false false false"

    If I open a mailbox I get "MAIL_SHOW false false false" etc.

    Any hints to fix please?  THANKS!

    In latest version, how do I set GPS to not show a zone or subzone name? I want to show co-ordinates only.

  • #151

    Broker Everything offer you 3 options. GPS, Location and ZoneText. Location displays your co-ordinates, ZoneText displays the names of zone and subzone and GPS displays both in one.

    greetings Hizuro ;)

    reset config ... fix it :)

    I have a feature request for your "Equipment" plugin.  Currently the plugin shows a list of equiped gear with three colums... Slot, Name, iLevel.  As it is currently implemented, this item list is display-only. 

    A useful (and VERY easy to do) enhancement to the plugin would be to make the items in this list clickable.  When clicked, the item link would be sent to various chat channels such as GUILD or INSTANCE_CHAT, RAID, etc depending on whether or not a modifier key is held down when the item was clicked.

    In fact, I've already coded it up and it works great.  A good improvement upon this would be to make the clicks configurable in the addon's settings page.  I just hard-wired it to send the link to the chat channels as follows...

    • No modifier key: SAY
    • Shift key: INSTANCE_CHAT
    • Control key: GUILD

    Below is the script snippet that performs the described behavior.   INSERT this after line 315 in Broker_Everything\modules\Equipment.lua.  Here is the link to the same snippet on pastebin (with original formatting intact)

    --claine - functionality added to allow linking of equiped items to SAY, INSTANCE_CHAT or GUILD chat channels.
        local chatItemLink = v[objLink];
        tt:SetLineScript(l, "OnMouseUp",
          local chatChannel = "SAY";
          if (IsShiftKeyDown()) then
           chatChannel = "INSTANCE_CHAT";
          elseif (IsControlKeyDown()) then
           chatChannel = "GUILD";
          SendChatMessage(chatItemLink , chatChannel, nil, nil);
        --end claine

    I'm getting this error now, and NO broker_everything plugins are loading. I changed one of the options, I think it was the one that said "show the prefix "BE:" in front of the plugins in the display bar.  And then I disabled the durability plugin and reloaded UI.  THen this error started happening, with total breakage of the addon.

    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?

  • #143

    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

    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.

  • #141

    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.
