About Glance Information Bar

News

  • Glance v5.4.7.5 now available!
  • Works with WoW Patch 5.4.7

About Glance

Glance is a modular information bar with many modules provided by default. Glance has been built from the bottom up to allow developers to create their own data brokers. Each module can be enabled or disabled via the user interface, or the Glance Interface Options panel. So use what you like, turn off what you don't, and let me know what else you'd like to see. I encourage you to read through this somewhat lengthy description, to see just what Glance is capable of.

New In This Release

  • Core: Fixed a bug that popped up when in a party with a member of the same realm. Set the bar to hide during pet battles.
  • Friends: Formatting changes and code redesign to shorten the tooltip and eliminate lua errors.
  • Pets: Fixed Dismiss Pet

    I found a solution that's easier than deleting the files.

    /run TargetFrame_ResetUserPlacedPosition()
    (for your target frame)

    /run PlayerFrame_ResetUserPlacedPosition()
    (and for yourself)


    Would still like ot be able to use Glance ... so I'm going to enable it and see if this brings them back permanently while be able to use the addon. :D

  • #126

    I had this same issue , and this fixed the problem for me too.  Thanks for posting it .

  • #113

    I have not run into that problem before.  Based on the scripts that you posted that fixed the problem, I suggest you go into the interface options for Glance and in General Settings uncheck Move Player and Move Target.  That disables the only function that touches the player and target frames.  My guess is that you have another addon that does something with the player/target frames (Maybe a UI replacement) and Glance is interfering.  Uncheck those two and you should be good.  Let me know.

  • #106

    Just dropping another line. This addon  is awesome thanks for the fan service on the gold module deletion!

  • #110

    Let me know if you still have issues with the Friends module/Auctionator.  That should have been fixed in this last update too.

  • #107

    Once I got the fix in for the modules, I could focus on finishing the other changes I had half done.  Thanks for the comments!

     

  • #102

    Thank you!! and I love you for this haha! woot Keep up the work and see if i can toss you some donations down the road sir.

  • #105

  • #100

    Hi. I recently did a Name Change on one of my characters. 

    The problem I'm having is that Glance will work perfectly on all 8 other characters except the recently changed one. The bar appears but all it ever says is "loading...". Also, if I go into the Glance options, under Modules, nothing appears at all. I can't check or uncheck any apsect of what Glance does. 

    I've done a /reload several times. Uninstalled, reinstalled. Also Uninstalled then removed other Glance files in the WTF folder then reinstall but it still only ever says "loading..." on that one particular character.

    Hope I've been helpful. I just love Glance so much that I'm sad it's not working on one of my characters. Please let me know if other people have had this problem or if there's a simple workaround. 

    Thanks.

  • #101

    Well, that's a new one.  There are two locations for Glance.lua in the WTF folder.  WTF\Account\[account name]\SavedVariables\ as well as WTF\Account\[account name]\[server name]\[toon name]\SavedVariables\  Did you delete both files?  The first folder has the file that holds the character name and may be what is causing the problem.

  • #104

    Excellent, glad that worked.  I'll take a look at the code to see if I can figure out why it happened and fix that for the future.  Glad you like the addon!

  • #103

    Alright. I got it to work. 

    I basically deleted EVERY instance of the Glance.lua and Glance.lua.(something) from all my files and viola, it worked. Thanks for making such a great addon! :]

  • #99

    Featured request: Hi could u make the bar moveable? And maybe the background adjustable to be blank if i would want it? that would be great!

  • #108

    I'll think about making it moveable, similar requests have been made.  But it's a bit easier said than done.  In the meantime, I added color adjustments to the options panel.  If you want the background to go away, just adjust the transparency on the bar color.

  • #98

    EDIT: Deleting those files did the trick. Thank you!
