Ara Broker XP  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r4
by: Aranarth [More]
This data broker plugin provides an ASCII bar representing XP: ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Click the ASCII bar to display config menu. You can change:
- the pattern used in the ASCII bar (default is |).
- the length / number of pattern repetitions (default is 30).
- colors for earned, rested and remaining xp.
- the thousand separator / the character used between groups of 3 digits for better reading or large numbers.
r4
- Fixed the "1 bubblebubbles left" message issue.


r3
- Click the block to access options. You no longer need to edit the lua file.
- Max level is not hardcoded anymore: it will scale with expansions.
- In the tooltip: added number of bubbles left next to level.
- The thousand separator defaults to a comma if your client is enUS, or a space otherwise.


r2
- Added variable "thousandSeparator": in the tooltip, it's the character between groups of 3 digits. Defaults to " ".
- Added the LDB attribute "type" (set to "data source") for better recognition & display integration.
- Small code tweak in FormatXP function.


r1
- Initial release.

And, the tracking of rest xp for different characters in FuBar_RestFu?

Thank you very much for your time and energy.
Sorry but I don't think I will add anything to this tiny mod. It would be better to make a new and bigger one that would incorporate your ideas. Try the "addon ideas" section on the wowace forums.

I don't care for reputations and don't plan to code this kind of plugin, but I can help you in this task if you want.

It shows for me and the author of DockingStation as you can see in his exemple panel: http://s.wowinterface.com/preview/pvw21390.jpg
I don't know what's wrong in your case, sorry. Maybe you missed it ? It's called "Ara XP" and not "Ara Broker XP" and new plugins are hidden by default.

Hi,
I will try that. Thanks!
I bought the WoW Programming book and have been studying. I had already added a few lines to the lua that seem to be working but I want to try yours too. I added the following at line 22:

local function round(num)
local mult = 10^1
return math.floor(num * mult + 0.5) / mult
end

Then at line 36 I added:

GameTooltip:AddDoubleLine( "|cff"..colorRemaining.."Bubbles|r", "|cff"..colorRemaining..round(((maxXP - XP) / 5) * .001))

This way I didn't have to change any of your existing lines. I just added 5.

Thanks for helping me to learn!

How exactly do you define an icon for it? In the .lua file, or in button bin? If in button bin, how exactly?

I like this addon a lot, it's a very neat idea. I'd have two ideas for "improvements" though:

1. Give it an icon. A "@" or "" would be fitting as very noticable characters, IMO.
2. Make a copy which is a rep-bar, so one can load either depending on whether the char is maxed, or even both. ^_^
