Ara Broker Guild Friends  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r71
by: Aranarth, MysticalOS
A Data Broker plugin that provides 2 blocks: one for guildmates & one for friends. These blocks show informative and interactive clickable tooltips. It's fast and lightweight.

Informations/screenshots are not up-to-date (and it's boring to do ).

It has the following functionalities on entries
- click guildmates or friends to whisp them.
- alt+click guildmates or friends to invite them.
- control+click friends to edit note.
- if you're an officier, you can control+click guildmates to edit their public note, and control+right click to edit officer's note.
- right click guildmates to sort the closest column.
- if you're an officer, you can click the MOTD to edit.
- middle click on friends to remove from friend list.
- control+mousewheel to resize tooltip.

And the following functionalities on blocks
- control+click to toggle hints so you don't have to remember all this crap.
- left click on guild block to toggle guild panel
- right click on guild block to toggle the guild notes column.
- shift+click on guild block to toggle guild name.
- left click on friend block to toggle friend panel.
- shift+right click on blocks to toggle total number of guildmates or friends.
- middle click on friend block to show the "add a friend" dialog box.


It shows
- check marks for grouped guildmates and friends.
- class icon (mainly to provide a column to sort) when not grouped.
- class colored names.
- level colored in grey, green, yellow, orange or red depending of your own level.
- zone colored in green, yellow or red depending of faction.
- public notes (and officer notes for guildmates if you have the rights).
- rank for guildmates.


If you have AddonLoader, the loading of this addon will be delayed.
If you have Skinner, this addon will be automatically skinned.

6.0 Fixes
Support for Heroes of the Storm

r70
*Only use lower cpu method for guild menu if "show offline" is not checked, otherwise, use higher cpu method that works if that's turned on.
*Hard code hack shrine colors in so they work correctly (they don't unpack correctly for some unknown reason)

r69
Fix battle.net desktop app support.

r68
Switch to Ambiguate(name, "none") which is just as good as strip code, but cleaner.

r67
Make realm stripping work for more realms.

r66
Fix rare nil error if name isn't returned by GuildRosterInfo()
Improve CPU usage of realm stripping by only stripping online users instead of ALL users in guild every GUILD_ROSTER_UPDATE

r64
5.4.2 now sends realm name in GuildRosterInfo(). Update to strip realm names from players on same realm in your guild.

r63
Work around blizzard fail in 5.4.1 causing action block errors on friends frame show.

r62
Update ToC to 50400
Fixed the green in options menus
Maybe other stuff I forgot

r61
If RAID_CLASS_COLORS or CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS are corrupt (god knows what other mod is messing this up), just disable colors and show white text in broker.
r60
More fixes for Battle.net desktop and Hearthstone
r59
Add a nil check to avoid some rare errors when contact details are missing.
r58
Support for Hearthstone
TOC update to 50300
r57
Support for battle.net desktop
r56
Now identifies who's mobile AND online from those who are only mobile. (yay for new 5.1 apis for this finally)
r55
Reduce the likelyhood of a taint in StaticPopupDialog (glyph and talent UI). Won't actually help much if other mods are running not trying to do same work around.
Bumped ToC to 50100
r54
Fixed group checkmarks not appearing when in a party (not raid)
r53
Fix Faction Icons
r52
Fix whisper sending to bnet users from broker
Add support to alt click inviting of cross realm realid friends to menu.
r51
Fixed packaging which got screwed up since my OS is fubared right now and not zipping things right.
r50
Fix error with level 25 guilds in patch 5.x
Removed all 4.x compatability code.
r49
Handle the name&surname being merged into one arg in MoP as well so we don't include battletags (as last names) on friends broker. It'll behave as it does on live and work as intended now.
r48
- Update apis for broadcast messages and battletags for MoP beta. Friends broker should once again work on beta while continuing to work on live.
r47
- Silence some errors while grouped. Checkboxes still only work while in a raid though. party groups don't detect properly.
r46
- Now compatible with WoW 5.x

r44
- Fixed a 4.3 issue due to an api change in player status now being returned as number value instead of localized strings.
- Added support for Diablo 3 recognition for RealID/BattleTag friends
- Bumped TOC to 40300 ("load out of date" will no longer be necessary)
- Updated to latest libs.

r43
- Fixed a 4.2 issue due to BNGetToonInfo API change (thanks to MysticalOS).


r42
- Fixed toc issue that was preventing the addon from loading without a load manager addon.

- Fixed rare cases of guild panel stuck on screen.
- Updated english zones (was about time!).


r40
- Guildmates logged on using the mobile armory application will have a distinctive status.
- Guild XP bar is hidden when guild reaches max level.
- Added an option to display guild XP tooltip when the mouse if over the XP bar (default: off).
- Reworked the XP bar a bit and improved XP number format (thanks to ForeverTheGM).

r38
- Added guild XP (with an option to turn it off).
- Added an option to hide your own broadcast.
- Added an option to use TipTac skin (requires TipTac).
- Now, when Battle.net doesn't provide toon informations, toons are treated as same realm (meaning you can try to invite them), the name is grayed and the class icon is the WoW one.
- Fixed option "Restore default colors" to instantly apply visual changes.
- Fixed "Notes" and "Rank" color options to correctly apply to first line.


r37
- Fixed battle.net broadcast dialog.

- Fixed a rare bug that could occure while editing colors with opacity slider (background, border, highlight) due to a garbage collected function (or so I think).

r34
- Fixed sort order by rank (it was using alphabetical rank instead of rank index).
- Fixed friend status to correctly show away/busy.
- Changed highlight to gradually blend with background (indicating an ascending or descending order). You may have to adjust the opacity to a higher value.


r33
- Added multi-level custom sort order (no config menu and not implemented for real friends). Set level 1 with RightClick, level 2 with Shift+RightClick, and level 3 with Alt+RightClick. Sort the same column to toggle ascending/descending order.
- Added an option to highlight the level 1 column. You can also edit the highlight color.
- Separated Hints and Block Hints visibility option (Block Hints set to visible by default).
- Added options to filter hints, so you can display only forgettable ones. You can still uncheck the top level entry to turn everything off.

- Fixed the color picker to correctly cancel changes.


r30
- Fixed Starcraft 2 friends (but that looks messy).
- Fixed real friends columns width (was sizing according to the last line instead of the longest).

- Added configuration menu (right-click any block).
- Moved "modifier+click" block combo to config menu.
- Changed some default colors.
- Most colors are now editable (quite messy).
- Added confirmation dialog on real friend removal.
- Now using less CPU thanks to Vrul.


r29
- Updated LDB 1.1 from revision 3 to 4 (everything's fine, I'm just 2 years late xD).
- Fixed the "larger than usual" columns. I was taking the hidden titles into account.
- Fixed an issue where guildmates were shown instead of friends.
- Fixed colors being different between the first real friend and the second+. However, colors are still not set (it's the default, kind of ugly, yellow).


r28
- Finished the half-assed fix from r27 (Still no friend online to test, slackers!).


r27
- Fixed a silly mistake (wrong variable scope).


r26 (beta)
- Several battle net fixes.
- Fixed an old issue where it was showing "Hints [Block]" while the mouse was not on the block.
- Fixed scrollbar position.
- Fixed panel size when there's only real friends (not field tested).


r25 (alpha)
- Experimental implementation of battle net friends.
- Changed the default background a bit.
- Column titles are removed by default.
- Middle-click a block to toggle column titles.


r24
- Added MMOUI Minion support.
- Removed unnecessary Skinner and SharedMedia optional dependencies, it was also breaking some Skinner features. (Credits goes to Jncl).


r23
- Now fully functionnal in combat (yay!).


r22
- Removed localization file, now using LOCALIZED_CLASS_NAMES_MALE and LOCALIZED_CLASS_NAMES_FEMALE global tables (added in WoW 3.2). Delete the previous folder before extracting this version or you will end up with a dead file.
- Fixed a rare and weird issue (hopefully).


r21
- Added Control+MouseWheel to resize tooltip (experimental).
- Optimized implementation of the scrollbar: move lines instead of redrawing the entire tooltip.
- Fixed a possible appearance of the scrollbar when it is not wanted.
- Changed the maximum number of entries shown to something adapted to your UI scale and options.


r20
- Added a scrollbar for large guilds and/or friendlist. Use the mousewheel anywhere on the tooltip to scroll easily. (Credit goes to Tekkub for his "FauxScrollFrame" implementation ;))


r19
- Fixed an issue with 3.2 (GetDifficultyColor -> GetQuestDifficultyColor).
- Changed the MOTD to always display properly.
- Code tweaking.


r18

- Added a Shift+RightClick shortcut on blocks to toggle the total number of guildmates or friends.


r15
- Enhanced friend list refresh. Before, it was only refreshing on online/offline events. Now, it will also make sure to refresh at least once every 15 sec. That way, friends location is more accurate.


r14
- Fixed the possible leading space to the right of the tooltip when in group.
- Fixed the ruRU translation of Death Knight.
- Changed how to inherit fonts. Font addons will be able to dynamically modify them.


r13
- Made it compatible with DockingStation (display).


r12
- Fixed potential conflicts with other addons: RAID_CLASS_COLORS and CLASS_BUTTONS are now left untouched.
- Added the LDB attribute "type" (set to "data source") for better recognition & display integration.
- Replaced Menu_OnUpdate timer with MouseIsOver.


r11
- Fixed a bug that was raising the tooltip when the MOTD was edited.
- Added class localizations for friend list coloring.
- Removed class icons when grouped, so check marks are next to names for better quick views.


r10
- Fixed an error introduced with r9 that was checking everything when grouped.


r9
- Changed the visuals for grouped guildmates & friends to dynamic check marks (from greyed out icon/names).
- Changed the background handling to be Skinner friendly.
- Removed debug messages left in r8.


r8
- Fixed a silly error (missing "end").


r7
- Fixed the tooltip scale issue (r6 received only half of the fix and an internal version the other half...)
- Fixed an annoying issue that was causing ellipsis "..." on some entries.
- Removed use of Blizzard's tooltip (now use mine exclusively).


r6
- Fixed the tooltip scale issue.


r5

- Extended the greyed out names of grouped guildmates to friends.
- Removed the label/value support (no more needed).


r4
- Fixed an error when entering the friend block with a non-english client (sorry, no translations added).
- Fixed AddonLoader support (hopefully): block text should be set at load time.
- Added a toggle to show/hide guild notes: any non left mouse click on the guild block will do (right, middle, 4, 5).
- Added a visual effect to distinguish from grouped and ungrouped guildmates: those in your group are coloured in grey.
- Added Skinner support.

- Fixed AddonLoader support in toc file.
- Added a functionality so that an officer can control click a guildmate to edit its public note.

Your error looks identical to Jzar's report just before yours. Do you have friends in the SC2 beta too?

I do, but none have been online. R29 is still bugged with the friends frame beeing to short. Looks so me like, if you have more than one friend online it uses the last on the list to allign the width of the drop down friends list or maybe just the line that is shortest.

I was finally able to reproduce the shrinked box, and got someone on SC2 beta. So hopefully I will be able to release something in a day or 2. It will depends on how long they will stay connected so I can debug to my heart's content.

EDIT: shrinked box fixed in next release.

RealID broadcast message

First off: Great addon Ara! I use all the others 'Ara' brokers I was just waiting on that one have updated to RealID things. Thank you!

Not sure if it is happening to someone else but yesterday I had an 'issue': a friend have set a really, really long broadcast message, something like 200+ characters, then my tooltip started to take about 80% of my screen width while he was online.

If it's a common issue, could you please consider to wrap the RealID broadcast message in more than one line, or maybe just cut it to a reasonable width?

Re: RealID broadcast message

@vncsoliveira:

I'm looking for a one line real friends implementation because it really is messy, especially with mixed SC2/WoW. The idea is to show a side tooltip with extra informations (broadcasts would go there) when you hover a real friend.


@Froagh:

Fixed !


EDIT: if you get "guid update" and "friend update" messages, please re-download (I made a silent update ).

I received this error while my cursor was over the tooltip and a RealID friend was logging.

BTW, while you're adding coloring options, can you give us one for the status text that is prepended to non-RealID character names?

Example:
<Away> Charactername

Hello! Few quick suggestions:

Drop the client icon for wow and use the sc2 icon as their "class" when the client is sc2. They just look messy as is, the sc2 and wow data don't align very well.

I'm not a big fan of the two line friend's list ;[ Ultimately, I would find it best if you could hide their real name (or follow the char name in parens, reverse of the FriendsFrame), have their status follow the old behavior (<Away>/<Busy> in front of character name), and have the broadcast text where notes use to be.

Or! If nothing else, add a bit of space between entries

Consolidate the server and zone name columns, if you're on different realms use gameText (or your own fancy realmName - zoneName) with the faction icon before it.

I've also noticed (like other posters) sometimes BNGetFriendInfo returns nil for everything after the first three return values (as they're logging in or out it seems). I had SetToastData return nil when this happens then skip over it in UpdateTablet, but I never paid attention to if BN_FRIEND_INFO_CHANGED gets fired multiple times as the info becomes available. Seemed to work fine >.>


Think that's about it. Like the new look of the tooltips, keep up the good work!

Edit: Just read what you said about a one line friend's list with embedded tooltips. My suggestion is to keep it simple. You may as well just use the default ui to view friend info if you start nesting info, imo.


Also as a programming aside, I don't mean to poke, but dropping parens on function calls looks silly mixed with non-string and multi-argument function calls D: Inconsistency hurts me and just had to say something, lol

I have set the Notes to show right because in our notes on the right side are Tank/Heal/DD Info.
Now, on my Officier Char i dont want to see the Officiernotes because it is uninteresting to see when the Char was Invited.
What do i have to change in the LUA File ?

Hidiho Althena of Wrathbringer.

PS: Ideas for further Versions.
Make a Menu to set every colum right/center/left.
Make Notes and Officiernotes to 2 extra Colums.

@Nebula:

Wouldn't it be confusing to mix class and client icons ? That would simplify the 1 line real friend, though.

So I scrap the real name but provide an option to append it to the toon name (or prepend, or replace) ?

Is it better to use status text or icon ? For the sack of normalization, it will be applied to guildmates, friends and real friends.

About the code: I find amusing the syntax allows not to use parens with a string argument. It's funny you feel crazy about this tiny thing when, most of the time, other coders tell me they hate how compact (hard to read) my code is.

You don't like the side tooltip idea ? Most ppl want maximum informations, and to display real friend informations in 1 line, I think I will have to move some. Also what about the "issue" vncsoliveira reported ? Broadcasts can be very long. At some point, I wondered if it wouldn't be better to add an extra line if there's a broadcast to display.

What about notes on real friends ? I scrap it ? Besides, making notes on real friends seems bugged. Once, I added a note on a real friend, then he logged onto another toon and my note was gone. And it seems notes are not toon based, but real ID based.



@ForeverTheGM:

Coloring status text is a good idea, but what about an icon instead of text ? Next to class icon ?



@Ash-rak:

To get rid of officer notes, search for:
Code:
	local name, rank, _, level, class, zone, note, offnote, connected, status = GetGuildRosterInfo(i)
And add this line below:
Code:
	offnote = ""
Column alignment is on my TODO list. I need to work on the idea, but I feel lazy ATM.

About the notes/officer notes on 2 columns, I will add it to the bottom of my TODO list.

An icon is fine. I don't care either way.

Thanks for responding, never know if I'll be met with ire or not, lol.

Wouldn't it be confusing to mix class and client icons ?
If you see a WoW class icon, you know it's WoW, otherwise it's the game the person is playing, I don't think it would be confusing.

So I scrap the real name but provide an option to append it to the toon name (or prepend, or replace) ?
What I was thinking for the one line would be something like this:

wow: [class icon] [status icon] [Character (Real Name)] [level] [faction icon] [realm (if different) - zone] [broadcast (truncate at 30 or so chars?)]
sc2: [client icon] [status icon] [User (Real Name)] [gameText] [broadcast]

Is it better to use status text or icon ?
For simplicity sake I just suggested using <Away>/<Busy> but dropping the green online icon and showing the orange/red status icons instead of using text would be cool.

You don't like the side tooltip idea ?
Personally, I just use the display to quickly see who is online and what they're doing. The idea of indicating a broadcast is set and putting that in it's own tooltip sounds fine, but nesting any of the other character info would be annoying to me.

What about notes on real friends ?
Same with notes! I never use them so I'm inclined to say just hide or nest them like you would a long broadcast message.

It's funny you feel crazy about this tiny thing when, most of the time, other coders tell me they hate how compact (hard to read) my code is.
I come from a c and perl background, so compact doesn't bother me, lol. I am pretty OCD, though, and tend to start rewriting code if I look at it ;[

I think the RealID friends should keep their distinctive formatting. They are separate from normal friends and they should be treated as such.

The whole point of the broadcast is for them to TELL YOU what they are up to. This is still a new feature though, so I doubt many people are actually using it for its intended purpose at this point in time.
