Fortress  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.5
by: Borlox [More]
Fortress is a display addon for LDB data feeds. It shows each plugin as a block, which is freely movable and can stick to other blocks. Blocks can be unstuck by holding the ctrl-key while dragging them.

Commands:
Use /fortress or /ft to open the configuration (also accessible via Main Menu -> Interface -> Addons -> Fortress).

Configuration:
The configuration has two parts: The master settings and the individual plugin settings. At first each option is controlled by the master settings and therefore it has the same effect for each plugin. Once you change something individually for one plugin, this setting is no longer controlled by the master mode (for this plugin).
You can select the mode for each option at the "Select master" tab in each plugin's config screen.

Bug Reports:
To report a bug, please open a ticket here.

Re: Conditional Color Coding?

I think such conditional colors are the task of the broker and not of the display.
The color can be set by using the |cAARRGGBB...|r escape sequence.

Conditional Color Coding?

I love Fortress and use it and Broker addons extensively in my UI. Thanks for the great work.

I was wondering if there was a way to apply conditionals to the color coding of Broker text or labels (either through Fortress or through editing the lua code of the individual broker addons), so that one could use color cues to aid the processing of the texual information.

For Example, on something like Broker_Equipment: an ability to have my set labelled "PvE" show up in green, "PvP" show up in red, "Fishing" show up in blue, etc on the Text/Label portion.

Or on Dualspeccer, the ability to have my Frost spec show up Blue and my Arcane spec light purple.

At the moment there is no configuration option for that.
You can open a ticket here, when you think there should be an option for that.

i think i may have done a bad job explaining. :P when i say class coloring, i mean i want, lets say, the text to change color according to what class i'm currently playing. so when i log a dk, the text should be dark red, when i log a priest it should be white, blue for shammie and so on. if i set the color in master options, all chars will have that same text color. so what i'm looking for, is whereever we now can select a custom color, there's also a checkbox for class coloring.

alternatively, is there a way for me to implement this by editing the lua? everything in my ui is class colored, except for that skada dps text...
You could make a profile for each of your charakters, automatic coloring is not supported.

You could try to add this snippet at the end of Fortress:OnInitialize() (Core.lua:580)
Code:
do -- CLASS COLOR
	local c1, c2 = {}
	local _, class = UnitClass("player")
	for k, v in pairs(RAID_CLASS_COLORS[class]) do
		c1[k] = v
		c2[k] = v
	end
	c1.a = 0.3
	c2.a = 0.7

	self.db.profile.masterSettings.borderColor = c1
	self.db.profile.masterSettings.frameColor  = c2
end
Its not tested and any update will remove it, use it on your own risk.

Block background and border color, as well as text, label and suffix color can be changed in the options dialog ([Esc]->Interface->Addons->Fortress).
If you set the colors in the master options all blocks are colored the same way, you just have to enter it one time.

is there any way this can be implemented for future releases, or is it possible to edit one of the lua files in fortress, overriding color selection with class coloring code?

Please try the following commands:

Code:
/run LibStub("AceAddon-3.0"):GetAddon("Fortress").db.profile.emptyBlocks = {}
/run ReloadUI()
This should solve the issue.

Does this happen for all of your characters, or just for one?
And could you please upload your saved variables file?
It's located at World of Warcraft\WTF\Accout\<your account>\SavedVariables\Fortress.lua

There you can configure them like a normal plugin. When you disable an empty block, it'll be removed at the next login/reload and is invisible untill then.
Ohhh, I wasn't seeing it because I needed to reload UI! Thanks very much.
