About ChocolateBar Broker Display

ChocolateBar will create a bar on top or bottom of your screen where other addons called broker plugins can display stuff like your fps.
Basically its a Titan-panel or Fubar replacement.

Example Bar:
You can get the plugins in this example from: Broker Starter Pack

Main Features

  • Easy setup, install & go!
  • Multiple bars - top or bottom as many as you want.
  • Left, right and center alignment.
  • Support for icon colors and coordinates like used by TomTom.
  • Easy config, simply drag a plugin and drop points will show. The idea is to easily disable a plugin or toggle its text. See pics.
  • Load-on-demand options, and small memory footprint.
  • More Chocolate - a broker plugin to show a bar that will autohide again. Great for launchers or other plugins you don't need visible all the time:)

Options for:

  • Show bars on mouse over only.
  • Hide bars in combat.
  • Hide bars during a pet battle.
  • Set a fixed width for any plugin.
  • Change textures, font, colors and a lot more...

Where to get plugins?

I have made an addon pack with ChocolateBar and a selection of plugins that should cover your basic needs: Broker Starter Pack

Data Broker category on Curse
Data Broker category on WoWInterface
Updated list


Right click the bar or type "/chocolatebar" to open the options menu.

    Re: Clicking Instead of Mousing Over?

    I have been a long time Chocolate user and lover (both kinds)
    I was just curious if there is an option I have missed or perhaps might this be an option in the future, to have the menus that appear on mouse-over only appear when clicking on the item, removing the default option of opening whatever that items opens.
    The reason I ask is, there are times when in the heat of things I accidentally mouse-over the bar and then obscure what I need to see on screen for a second or two.
    Thank you for your excellent work on this great addon.

    You are talking about the tooltips are  you not? ;)

    Unfortunately there is no such option and it's not that easy to design because most plugins already perform an action when clicked.

    You can disable the tooltips during combat however.

    I frequently get  "clear all points"/setpoint" error messages along these lines:

    11x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "Broker_ProfessionsMenu" tried to call the protected function "ChocolateBroker_ProfessionsMenu:ClearAllPoints()"

    22x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "Broker_ProfessionsMenu" tried to call the protected function "ChocolateBroker_ProfessionsMenu:SetPoint()"

    Happens with different plugins such as iFriends, ElkFriends and ProfessionsMenu. Is this a problem w/ my other addons or Chocolate Bar? Anything I can do to fix this?

    Nice change for hiding chocolatebar during a pet battle. However one time during a battle, someone tried to gank me which interrupted the pet battle right away. And the bar didn't come back.

  • #192

    Yes. Also when you enter a dungeon while in a battle (using the dungeon finder), the bar is no longer there.

  • #195

    Hi, I posted the original ticket about that on wowace. After installing the update, the bar was re-appearing after pet battles quickly, and the UI bumped down every time.

    However, just now after doing some wild pet battles, ChocolateBar did not reappear and the UI remaind in its default position (not bumped down). A /reload fixed it. I can create a new ticket if you would prefer that.

  • #194

    Should be fixed with r157

    @coreanism, you could modify the code to handle vehicleUI while waiting for the next update...

    in Bar.lua change line 14:

    From: local frame = CreateFrame("Frame",name,UIParent)
    To: local frame = CreateFrame("Frame",name,UIParent,"SecureHandlerStateTemplate")

    and then add the following line of code after line 67:
    RegisterStateDriver(frame, "visibility", "[vehicleui] hide; show")

    in the little of testing that I have done... so far it works well.

  • #185

    love the option to hide bars during pet battles. can you also add an option to hide when on vehicle?

  • #182

    Could you add option to ajust the pet battle health bar at the top of the screen during pet battles or option to hid the bars while in pet battles.

  • #184

    Added the hide bars option for now.

  • #181

    You  might want to think about adding option to hide Chocolate bar during Pet Battles, regardless of 'hide in combat' option. The bar overlaps with the pet battle upper screen bar.

    For the time being I put my chocolate bar to the bottom of the screen, although the usage now is awkward :D

    I'm having an issue with Chocolate Bar.  Whenever it is active, and even when it is the only mod active, my UI has a momentary lockup about every 6 or 7 seconds.  The kicker is that it only seems to affect my worgen lock's character.  I use it on every other toon that I have and it works fine.  Any idea what might be causing this?
