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)
Optional Files (0)

Hey there! I've downloaded and really like the concept of your mod, because I love having an extra action bar for my quest items. There's just some feedback I'd like to give:

QJ will show as a blank button (however, the empty backdrop/border will still show up) that I cannot do anything about until I open up my bags. Presumably at this moment that's when my quest items are read and thus register on the bar. It took me quite a while to figure this out when I was simply logging into Ogrimmar to test the addon. Is there any way to have the quest items load automatically upon login into QJ? Or must my bags be always opened first? If this would be a memory hog then no worries, it isn't a big hassle, it just took a while to realize (and you might want to mention it on the addon description).

Secondly, is there any way to collapse QJ permanently show all the quest items I have, instead of just displaying 1 and expanding the bar whenever I hover over it? It's just a personal preference that I like to have all my quest items showing at once (and in some quest areas you're required to use more than 1 quest object at a time). I realize this might get in the way of the bar's minimalism, so it's no big deal, but it would be a nice option.

Thanks very much again for this addon!

The addon is wotlk only.

The blank button thing is fixed in my version, and also you can work around it by just reloading your ui. I'll upload my latest version though.

As for your second question, it probably would be trivial to add, but I haven't had a use for that particular feature so I haven't added it.

Great, thanks for the speedy fix! I'll definitely be using this as I'm levelling my way (again, but them's the breaks!) to 80 when WOTLK hits. Or heck, even during dailies once 3.0.2 comes out!

Missing Items

Quite often, not all items register.
For instance, Arcane Charges from the 'The Air Strikes Must Continue" daily.
Any way to force one to load?
I have tried opening and closing the bags with no result.

Arcane charges are being reported by GetItemInfo as a "Consumable" item rather than a quest item. I'll upload a version later tonight that will also check the tooltip for "Quest Item".

I looked at that addon, and it uses the exact same method for determining quest items, so really the two addons should be the same.

thx for this addon, very nice idea:

could you add a frFR language capability in the default code?
here is the translated function:


Code:
items.CheckInteresting = function(self, bag, slot)
	local link = self.cache[bag][slot]
	if link then
		local name, _, _, _, _, _, subType, _, _, texture = GetItemInfo(link)
		if subType == "Qu\195\170te" or MatchTooltip(link, "Objet de qu\195\170te") then
			if MatchTooltip(link, "Utiliser\194\160:") then
				self:Add( { ["name"] = name, ["link"] = link, ["texture"] = texture, ["bag"] = bag, ["slot"] = slot } )
			end
		end
	end
end

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?

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.

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.
