About PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

PitBull4 is a continuation of PitBull.

Differences from PitBull 3:

  • It's mostly done, but not entirely done thus why there are still only betas (despite this it is still very stable).
  • Documentation is written before functions
  • Much easier for third-party extensions.
  • Options will be much, much simpler. In 3.0, there's about 200 panels that you can mess with, it's overwhelming. I want to bring this down to somewhere around 10.
    • Layouts are defined deterministically and unit groups use the layout rather than ad-hoc layouts on a per-unit basis. This will make setting up your unit frames far, far easier.
    • Due to some decisions made, 4.0 is actually more configurable than 3.0. As a layout designer, you will have a lot more control over how things look. You can have different fonts on the same frame, different textures, more precise positioning, and a whole slough of other things.
  • CPU Efficiency will be taken much more seriously.
  • It uses Ace3 instead of Rock.

Tagging as v4.0.0-beta48

--------------------

Shefki:
    - This commit should fully fix the problems people have been having with SetFont() errors.  If the font returned from GetFont is nil then use our cached font and size.  Size whenever font is nil will be an uninitialized value and so the existing fix would still throw errors when the size ended up being less than or equal to 0.
    - It doesn't make sense to call GetFont on a new FontString.  The flags should not be preserved, so just set the font and size and leave the flags as "".  The AddFontString call later will set the flags properly. If the font string already exists then you want to preserve the flags.
    - Fix some typos that were fixed on nebula1169's branch.
    - Remove some values I set to help debugging ticket #1050.
    - Hopefully avoid the SetFont errors for sure now assuming that the problem is that GetFont() doesn't work immediately after a SetFont() while the game is still loading in.
    - Missed wrapping a geterrorhandler() in pcall().
    - Protect against Blizzard's error handler throwing an error, which is why the protection code didn't allow the frames to work even when the SetFont error was happening.
    - Stash the DEFAULT_FONT and DEFAULT_FONT_SIZE so I can get people having the font problem to show me what's being stored.
    - Wrap the SetFont and SetAlpha calls in pcalls() which should prevent errors with them from breaking frames entirely.
    - Make the Vengeance fix backwards compatible.
Benjamin Staneck:
    - use a different ID for vengeance that works in 5.4
Shefki:
    - Remove unnecessary constants that I added on accident.
    - Hopefully stop some rare errors in LuaTexts about SetFont.

    Pitbull4_Totems has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI.

    I get this when I try to right click the totem to dismiss it.

    I was also curious if there are plans for a Hide Raid boss Health function. When you get a fight with more than one boss they tend to get cumbersome running down the right of my screen.

    Thanks for the help ahead of time!

    Got a question regarding the shadow orbs module. Everything is fine with it exept that you canät move it or edit AT ALL or at least i can't find any option for that after an hour of searching. I want it bigger and on a different spot on the screen. Is this possible or is it already existing?

  • #4102

    i can´t see the chi of my monk and i don´t find options for endable this?

    can you help me?

  • #4101

     I keep having troubles with Pitbull since MoP.

    I cannot see cast bar of my character. I was trying enabling and disabling all addons. I see my cast bar when any other addon is enabled and Pitbull disabled. But i never seen my cast bar when enabled Pitbull.

    Im realy sad about it, cuz i like Pitbull, and i wish to use it, but i cannot play without cast bar :(

    I was posting ticket on wowInterface, few month ago, but no response there since now..

    I'm not seeing combo points on rogue or druid cat form.  I checked it was enabled, it was.  I can see holy power on paladin and chi power on monk though.

  • #4098

    This is causing about 15-20 errors per minute when in raids. Is no one else seeing this?

    check this reply: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/pitbull4?comment=4075

  • #4097

    Is it possible to change mana bar color depending of mana percents left?

  • #4096

    Hiya, I made raid frames for the first time and noticed that if the Name is set to "middle" position and it is too long or someone is away - the name grows out of the framebox, if it's aligned to the left it is not and is abbreviated with "..." at the end. Is there a way around this? Like say use another type of "name" string or is there not? Thanks a lot!

    Also in guild raids my ready check indicator won't show, even though testing it with a mate in a two player raid (switching the settings for ten man raid to also include 5 man raid) it does work, any idea why this is?!
    Does the ready check only work if you are raid leader or have been raid leader or assistant?

    This seems to be the exact same message.  Any help for it?
