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.
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.
