QuesterJester
Version: 1.0.4
by: BrandX [More]
Miss the usable quest item button from Autobar? This addon accomplishes just that. It is a single bar that automatically tracks your usable quest items and binds them to a key.

For extra minimalism, the bar is hidden until you mouse over.

How To Use

The slash menu /qj manages the addon. Options:
  • anchor: shows a draggable anchor so you can move the bar
  • grow: can be up/down/left/right, controls the direction the bar expands in
  • scale/spacing: these should be self-evident
  • help: help message

Notes
  • Integrates with ButtonFacade (use the /bf menu to configure)
  • No dependencies or embedded libraries, 50k memory usage, low CPU and memory growth
  • Right clicking a button makes it the hot (displayed) button
1.0.1 -- much lower garbage generation, and lower cpu overhead.
1.0.2 -- will show correctly on first login
1.0.3 -- more item coverage, like arcane charges
1.0.4 -- some localization changes (frFR)

As of the latest WoW patch today, I'm getting the following errors when I mouse-over the QJ box and it opens with my quest items (the errors repeat each time I mouse-over). I am uncertain if functionality remains with the items via QJ.

Update: Functionality verified! It still appears to work, regardless of the error.

Thumbs up Perfect

I was using autobar just for the quest item feature and it's a lot of extra stuff I don't want for that. This addon is perfect, it does exactly what I want, and nothing more. buh-bye Autobar.

Thanks for the great work and for sharing!

grow and moving

I really wanted to try out QuesterJester because I liked the idea of having only one button visible until hovering over it to pop out the rest of the bar.

I am currenlty using a very similar AddOn, QBar. It is unlike QuesterJester in that it doesn't "grow", or pop out, but is a solid bar of visible buttons.

A major problem I have with QuesterJester is the move anchor. Depending on where I want to anchor the base button, it could be a problem. It would be fine and dandy if I wanted to put the button on the right screen border, where the anchor allows it to be butted right up to the edge and it can conveniently pop out to the left. Unfortunately, I can't put it there with my screen layout.
I need to place the base button against the left border of the screen, with the direction to grow set to "right". The problem is, you can't move the button all the way to the left with the anchor on the left side, as it appears when you "/qj grow right". I can "/qj grow left", and move it all the way over, But when I issue "/qj grow right" to change it back to the correct popout direction, the base button moves to the right a whole button width.

The anchor on QBar is a bar on either long side of the row (or column if the button bar is vertical). That is much more usable for placement anywhere on the screen.

Thank you.

Edit:
I forgot to mention, just so you know all the differences from QBar:
QBar also has an "ignore" function, where you can cause items that appear on the bar by default to be hidden. That is sometimes handy to have, when the item isn't something that you need to have access to "use" to complete a quest objective.

Edit 2:
Thinking more about the ignore function, I suppose that with the button bar that is hidden until it pops out when hovering over the base button, it really isn't necessary to hide buttons with an ignore. Handy, but not necessary.

Thanks again.

Tooltip does not show

Well, it does not stay shown. When I mouseover an item, the mini tooltip flashes up and off before I can even see what it says. Does not happen with anything else besides QJ.

QuesterJester is really handy while leveling, thank you for making it Two couple of suggestions though:
1) Option to show all the buttons, not just while hovering
2) Could you blacklist/ignore Blessed Medallion of Karabor http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32757

The binding is in the normal menu, it doesn't have it's own header so it might be hard to see, but it's there for me.

Feature Request

I would like to suggest an option to use the shift key to open the bar. It is distracting that it opens every time you hover over it.

Thanks.

any chance you can package as zip? Mac wowinterface downloader cannot handle .rar files, making this the only site addon which won't autoupdate. Minor annoyance but still :P.

Bar not hiding?

My bar doesn't hide until mousover -- it is always visible, even when empty. Is there a setting or something I'm supposed to use to enable that feature?
