Broker Factions  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2.6 Release
by: Zhinjio, Torhal
Broker Factions is a simple Ace3 LDB Data Feed plugin that provides an easy way to monitor your reputation with the various factions. It is loosely based on FactionsFu (Elkano) and the older Titan Factions (Phanx).

What it does:
  • Provides a tooltip where all faction reputations are summarized. Details can be customized in the configuration panel (Right-Click on the plugin to bring up the configuration screen automatically). Factions that are under collapsed groups (or subgroups), in Blizzard's reputation tab frame (character screen) will not be shown. Likewise, inactive factions will be hidden. You may at any point expand or collapse a faction "header" (group) by simply right clicking on it (ensure that the "Show Collapsed Headers" option is enabled, in the configuration panel, if for some reason you are unable to view a faction group after collapsing it).
  • Provides a button where the addon's monitored reputation can be shown. You can select the faction you wish to monitor from either the configuration panel or by simply left clicking on it from the tooltip. Factions that are inactive/under collapsed groups will not be monitored. You may also choose to hide the monitored faction entirely, if you only want to view the tooltip, every now and then.
  • Session gains can be shown on both the button and the tooltip.
  • The addon "remembers" collapsed groups that you set per session and will attempt to restore these settings automatically, whenever you enter the world.
  • Provides an option so that your monitored faction switches automatically to reflect the faction you last gained reputation with (you also have the option to ignore negative reputation gains). Also provides options to use Blizzard's monitored faction or even set your own monitored faction as the "watched" faction (the one shown above the normal experience bar if not level capped). You may set a "watched" faction shown as an experience bar, by holding down Ctrl and clicking on a valid faction with reputation, either from the tooltip or by ctrl + clicking the plugin itself.
  • Provides an option to paste reputation info into a currently opened chat box. Just hold down Shift and click either on the plugin or on a valid faction with reputation, shown on the tooltip.
  • Provides an option to scale the tooltip and/or use a scrolling slider, to avoid issues with extremely large and detailed tooltips.

What it doesn't do:
  • It will not automatically set a faction to monitor according to your location/zone. I have decided against implementing this feature, so that the plugin can peacefully coexist and "cooperate" with addons that automatically switch Blizzard's reputation bar (the one above the experience bar if not level capped) according to your location.


Bear in mind that Broker Factions, as all DataBroker plugins does not provide it's own display, you will need a LDB-based display addon, such as Fortress, Carousel, StatBlockCore, Wraith, Titan Panel etc.

3.2.6 Release
- Updated ToC version for WoW 4.2
3.2.5 Release
- First "full function" release with new code
3.2.4 Beta
- Fixed db options bug. (thanks Torhal)
3.2.3 Beta
- Fixed a config bug
3.2.2-beta
- This is the first release after taking this addon over. Fairly large portions of the code have been rewritten. Since Bliz implemented several changes that made some portions of this addon obsolete. I've removed that code.
- Most tooltip functions are now restored and working as before (or better).
- I have not yet implemented showing *any* information on the LDB display bar, though that is up next.
- I usually don't move beta version over, opting instead of wait for a full release, but I think its good to get the new code in circulation, and getting feedback and bug reports. PLEASE let me know what you find and do or don't like.
3.1 [2009.08.04]
- Library update.
- Removed LibQTipClick-1.1 from embeds.
- Modified tooltip click handler to use SetCellScript method, present in LibQTip-1.0.
- Set the BackdropBorderColor and alpha to always reflect the original values of the GameTooltip.
- .toc bump for WoW version 3.2.
---------------------------
3.0b [2009.06.21]

---------------------------
3.0 [2009.06.16]
- Major Update
- Properly localized a few forgotten global vars.
- Embedded LibQTipClick-1.1. Added support for a clickable tooltip.
- Left clicking a faction name, on the plugin's tooltip will now cause said faction to be "watched" on the button/block. Note: Left click will NOT function if the user has selected the "Use Blizzard's faction watch" option, in the plugin's configuration menu.
- Shift + left clicking a faction name, on the plugin's tooltip will paste the faction information on a chat frame editbox (assuming it's open).
- Ctrl + left clicking a faction name, on the plugin's tooltip will cause said faction to be "watched" on the default Blizzard reputation bar. Note: Ctrl + Left click will NOT function if the user has selected the "Use Blizzard's faction watch" option, in the plugin's configuration menu.
- Added a new option under the configuration "Tooltip" category, that enables the user to hide the "hint" from the plugin's tooltip.
- Split the code in the OnEnter script to acquire and set tooltip properties and implemented a new function to actually draw the rest of the tooltip, in order to facilitate clickable functionality for faction headers.
- Right clicking a faction header will now cause it to collapse or expand and the tooltip will be automatically redrawn to reflect the changes in the faction index.
- Refined the argument return table for the callback handler function, to also return the faction's index ID, in order to avoid unnecessary checks using the faction name.
- Refined the tooltip hint, to provide better explanation in regards to the new functionality.

Ironforg Reveared 78% 17000/21000 - 53

the number at the end is the number that each faction recived on a faction turn in. Sicne almost every time you turn in some thing for faction each faction in that group gets a part of it it would be cool to know how much each faction received. I am not 100% sure you can understand what i mean but i hope you do LOL
This is visible under the column called "Session Gains". For instance, if you turn in a quest that awards Alliance (or Horde) reputation, the gain is added to all relevant factions under that header. The total amount added for your session is visible under "Session Gains". Session Gains are also visible on the plugin itself (included in [] brackets), for the currently watched faction. You may enable or disable session gain display on either the plugin or the tooltip, separately.

Erm, that is not the entire error message, so I have no idea what is going on.

Thanks .... Not sure what was interfering with it, but I pretty much started a new UI from scratch and whatever it was that was conflicting is gone. Working great!!!!

Oh, nothing important for sure, it's simply that I would have liked to be able to change the title displayed in Titan panel, as the title of your addon is the only element in my bar that isn't in french actually. But hey, no problem, I will continue to make a small edit of the lua for each new version, it won't kill me

Maischter: I believe I've answered this one line below your comment. The tooltip can be optionally made scrollable. Go to the configuration panel, under the tooltip category and enable it.

Thanks very much for the addon, nice one. A suggestion maybe: possibility to change the addon's title from "Broker factions" to something at least localized if not manually definable would be appreciated

There is an option under the "Tooltip" tab in the configuration panel, to enable scrolling on the tooltip and a slider next to it, where you can adjust the height after which the tooltip will be scrollable.

I'm having the same problem. Because of how the tool tip works I wasn't able to get into the options to make the tooltip scaled down. Hopefully with the new 'clickable' features in the latest release this will fix it.
