TargetingIcons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.5
by: slaymaj [More]
Great for bosses like Emalon in VoA!!!

This addon helps redesign how targets get marked in dungeons. Instead of having to go to 3 different dropdown menus to get a target symbol, I put the symbols on a bar above your targets portrait to have easy access. The bar will show up as long as you are a raid/party leader. It will also show party/raid member names to tell them they are on a particular symbol, if you turn that option on. I also added a feature that can be annoying in certain circumstances, so I set it to be off unless you wanted it on. Use '/ti options' to change the various options like locking the frames in place or having a skull put on your target whenever you change targets. I designed this mostly for tanks since they are generally the ones marking targets. This basically helps focus fire on targets if you have multiples instead of all party members targeting multiple enemies. To drag the frames make sure they are unlocked. The symbols bar can be dragged by clicking and holding just right of the skull icon. The names bar can be dragged by clicking and holding just right of the names between the scroll bar, now expanded a bit more for easier access.

X-Perl Compatible now!!!
Version 3.5:
Corrected problem that was not letting slash commands work.

Version 3.3:
Updated for patch 3.3 so addon works even when not party leader since anyone in party can mark now.

Version 3.2:
Now correctly shows up if you're raid assist again. Before was only working if raid leader.

Version 3.1:
Made easier to drag.

Version 3:
*X-Perl compatable now - no need to turn off X-Perl to use the addon now.

*Changed the slash commands to include a list of options. Can now lock the frames in place, show/hide the names frame that was included in the last version, as well as reset the position of the frames if they've been placed in a bad position.

Version 2:
I had a few requests to make the addon only show up when in a raid/party so I adjusted it to do that. I also added the next new feature. Now after you select the target and put the mark on them you will also notice a list of your party/raid members, which you can click on and it will whisper them the target they "will be on", whether it be sheeping, tanking, sapping...

Version 2.1:
Updated so will whisper correctly for alliance.

I can't seem to get "/ti options" to work when I type it it wants to reply to someone I type / then T then I hit space and it starts a message box.... anyone else able to get this to work?

Ok, I replaced /ti in the LUA with /icon and it had the same behavior of opening a chat box when i hit the spacebar...

I like the idea of this addon but I want to disable some of the features (such as the list of group members) and lock it down once I move it.. I will watch for an update but for now none of the /ti commands work.

Re: Can this be used when given raid

Now it seems that the targeting icons don't show up unless I am the Raid Leader. Is there a setting to allow the icons to appear whenever I have rights to mark targets or is this something that can be added?
It did used to work if assist, gotta figure out what I changed so I can possibly correct it. Kind of hard to test when I'm never raiding.

It really seems useful, if I can get it to move to were I can use it.
I just updated it for the last time now. I'm trying to quit playing Wow since I play to much but I expanded the draggable section to make it easier. Click just between the scrollbar and the character names.

maybe a handle to click on when its not locked, or just disable some of the functions when unlocked to make a click anywhere move it.

thanks for the addon
I was only testing it when it was me and someone else in the raid, looks like you can drag it much easier when there is only 2 people on the list because the only draggable place is pretty much right in the middle of where the names would be. I'll try to get this fixed, because it's getting on my nerves too, hehe.

I've never used perl classic so I would have to take a look at it to find out why.

X-perl

Trying to get it running with x-perl. x-perl forces some addons to not be shown, so trying to figure out how to get around it. Making a few other improvements and working on a bug I noticed as well.

Working with Xperl?

Any idea when you are expecting this to be UI friendly with Xperl? I would love to use this UI but not at the cost of getting rid of Xperl.
