Carousel  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.1
by: Astromech [More]
Attention to users of versions before 2.0:
Carousel 2.0 has a restructured database and will convert as many of your settings from previous versions as possible. Some settings cannot be carried over however. Backup your saved variables if you are concerned about losing settings.

General Description:
Carousel is a LibDataBroker display addon, inspired by displays like Fortress and StatBlockCore. However, Carousel compacts multiple plugins into single blocks, which can cycle through plugins as you wish.

Type /carousel or /car to open the load on demand options menu, where you can edit the look and feel of the display, as well as the place and order to show LDB feeds. If you are interested in customizing Carousel's font, see the CarouselFont addon in optional files at the top of this page.

New in 2.0:
You can now have multiple "Carousels" bound together into bars. These bar will automatically resize to their contents, and can be left, right, or center anchored.
Carousel will alert you *once* when it finds a new LDB feed or updates to a new version. You can disable this feature in the /carousel menu.

Note To LDB Feed Developers:
Carousel has had issues with LDB feeds which "grab" onto and modify the frame sent in the OnEnter and OnLeave functions (examples are Fubar2Broker addons using Tablet). This is because multiple feeds can share a frame. Carousel implements OnShow and OnHide callbacks so LDB feeds can release the frame when the user hides the display through cycling or disabling an LDB feed, allowing the frame to be reused by another LDB feed.
2.1.1
If a bar has a fixed width, the last Carousel on the bar will stretch across any leftover space.

Wimpface, you're welcome!

Karecha,
I see what you mean!
I think I know how to fix it. I'll try to get a quick new version out later today.

EDIT:

Just uploaded the new version. It should work how you want now!

Im having issues with the looks when using fixed width.

i have set it to 250(thats teh distance between my 2 bartender blocks), but instead of being:

[bartender][<______Text______>][bartender]
[bartender][<_____XTextX_____>][bartender]
[bartender][<____XXTextXX____>][bartender]
[bartender][<___XXXTextXXX___>][bartender]

being how i want it to look (and how it used to look)

i get

[bartender][<Text>____________][bartender]
[bartender][<XTextX>__________][bartender]
[bartender][<XXTextXX>________][bartender]
[bartender][<XXXTextXXX>______][bartender]
this way looks even more stupid when placed between 2 other elements.


Even with playing around with offsets and so on, the arrows refuse to stay at the end of the bar and keeps moving around based on the amount of text in the feed.

Closests i managed was:

[bartender][___<____Text____>___][bartender]
[bartender][__<____XTextX____>__][bartender]
[bartender][_<____XXTextXX____>_][bartender]
[bartender][<____XXXTextXXX____>][bartender]


but still the free hanging arrows when feed is shorter:/

Totally agree with Rykasha, please make fixed width an option.

I have my caroucel between 2 BT4 bars, and its looks so silly with the arrows hanging freely in thin air instead of sitting snuggly against the bars.

I'm not sure how anyone else feels about this, but I kinda liked how Carousel was a fixed size in the previous version. I had it lined up just under my minimap (squared through another addon). I appreciate the auto-sizing is a brilliant feature, but would it be possible to toggle it on and off? If not thanks anyway for a great addon

For now you need to go into the options and change the X/Y coordinates of the block to move it. I will make the bars draggable in the next version.

Re: Errors

Sorry for my inactivity. I just recently got back from a WoW hiatus.

Thank you for the bug reports. I have finished updating Carousel for 3.1 as well as adding many new features. Since the WoWInterface server is so busy, I haven't been able to upload it yet, but I'll try tonight when traffic will hopefully be lower.

Wizardling and Bitechu, I like your suggestions. I think I'll add them in a future version. The newest Carousel is almost a complete rewrite, so I want to make sure the core features are working before I add extra things.

Edit: New version now up. Please submit any bug reports here. Thanks!

Default after timeout

Is there a way that this could default to a particular broker after a set amount of time? Like lets say nothing updates in 5 second, so on the 6th, it switches back to my clock. and maybe have a slider or text entry for the amount of time.

usually what ends up happening is my carousel just gets stuck on the ara guild display lol, and i dont have a separate clock anymore.
