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:
ExampleBar3
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

Usage

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

    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?

  • #179

    Hmm, please try to disable the option "Adjust Blizzard Frames" might be relatet to that.

  • #172

    Hi there,

    Are you planning to add an option to hide bars when in a pet battle? There are a lot of game generated frames that come up during them that bars can cover up, so it would be really useful to be able to have a toggle for hiding bars during pet battles. Thanks.

    Edit: this can be more or less accomplished with changing the frame strata to Background, but there are reasons people might not want to do that in general, depending on their layout.

    Yup seems like a nice option to do add. I will add that in my vacation time next week;)

  • #171

    I keep trying to add a top chocolate bar, and it disappears.  I try deleting it and recreating it, and it MIGHT stay there a minute or two, then it's gone again.  Sometimes it will show, then it will disappear.  My bottom bar is just fine - no problems.....

    nvm...what seems to have happend is that "morechocolate" turned itself on and stole the upper bar for some strange reason.  I set it to none and it's ok again.

    Before 5.0.4, Minimap and Buffs were moved a bit down, so they would not overlap with Chocolate Bar at the top of the screen. This seems to me missing (for me at least), as of 5.0.4.

  • #174

    Me too.Minimap can't move  a bit down.

  • #170

    This should work again with the latest version 2.2.6. If not check if you have set "Adjust Blizzard Frames" under Look and Feel of the ChocolateBar settings.

  • #177

    thank you for the tip, i had noticed as well that the mini-map didn't move down as well. so broker_location, OFF for now.  :)

    After a bit more checking I noticed that this happens when 'Show location above minimap' is unchecked in the Broker_Location settings. When I check that option, the minimap moves even with Broker_Location active.

  • #175

    I had the same problem with the minimap not moving. However, when I deactivated all other addons except ChocolateBar and one broker plugin, the minimap did move. I added all the others back bit by bit and noticed that in my case it was Broker_Location that stopped the minimap from moving.

  • #173

    Thanks for this tip. The buffs are moved down, but the minimap still isn't. However, I can live with that.

    I am getting no LUA error but my ChocolateBars are green for some reason
