    Did that and when I closed and started the game up again, the black icons came back.

    There seems to be a small bug in your update for Mists of Pandaria (Patch 5.0.4). When I queue for a dungeon the little 'searching' eye is picked up this addon and palce into the window that is then at the bottom right hand side of my screen.

    I'm hoping you can fix this so the addon works correctly as soon as possible

    Yours, Krinkin

    Sounds like they changed the name of the button on me.  :)  I'll look into it.

    i'm having a small problem with this addon.

    i didn't do anything beside the normal updates, but now it's hiding the minimap button for the dungeon/raid queue (the eye) and i can't find a way to make it show again.

    i tried adding an exception, but it either doesn't work or i did something wrong (wrong method or name of the icon)

    anyone knows how to fix this?

    Okay.  I've uploaded the new version.  It works with Mists and has the size check in there.  Hopefully it will be approved soon.  Version number is 3.1.8

    Calendar button refuses to display until I check and then uncheck "hide calendar" every time I log in.

    Other than that, love this addon! been using it for aaaaages :D

  • #1225

    You have another addon messing with the calendar button.  I see this comment a lot.  I don't do anything with the button unless you select the checkmark to hide it.  All unchecking the hide calendar button does is to show the button.  No matter who hid it.  :)

    It's usually addons that change your minimap.

  • #1228

    Hmm, any idea what sort of addon might be hiding it? I'm at a loss to think of anything I have that is related to the calendar in any way. Thanks a ton for the mists update, by the way! I felt icky having icons around my map again.

    I am a user of both SexyMap and Minimap Button Frame, and last night the dungeon difficulty of my Dragon Soul raid was gathered and placed with the buttons in the button frame. 

    I am glad to know that a fix for the border is coming soon, but I felt that I needed to aknowledge that the addon is gathering more than just the background of Sexy Map.

    Thank you for keeping up a great addon. I would hate to not have it.

    Hello dear SexyMap & MBF users! As of the latest version you may have noticed that MBF is stealing the border from SexyMap when a specific preset is used (one with a backdrop). This is actually a MBF flaw and can be fixed in 2 ways:

    No1: Scroll down to line 699 in MinimapButtonFrame.lua, you will see a list of words there, add "SexyMapCustomBackdrop" to the list of words.

    No2 (better option): Scroll down to line 1311 and you should see this code:

    if (isValidAdd(child, true)) then




    Replace it with this code:

    local w = child:GetWidth()

    if (isValidAdd(child, true)) and w > 20 and w < 40 then




    The 2nd option is better because it will work with all addons, I've contacted the author to implement this.

    lol I'd been planning on adding that for a while.  Just got involved with checking things worked for the beta.

    I'll update things soon.

    I hope. :)
