DockingStation (Display)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.5.12 (Beta)
by: Vrul [More]

A display platform for LibDataBroker (LDB) based plug-ins. The display is provided through panels, each having sections (Left, Center, Right) corresponding with how a plugin is justified within it.

All plugins are disabled by default and you must turn on the ones you want to use. This is to avoid the complete mess that results from all plugins being on with the first use. The only plugin on at the start is the one provided by this addon to access its options easily. Just click it to start changing settings.

With plugins unlocked you can drag and drop them to other panels/sections and have them automatically adjust to their new location. There are no limitations on the drag and drop capabilities other than the new location for a plugin must be within a panel. You may also change the location of a plugin through the plugin options menu.

Almost all sub-sections of settings have a default option. The defaults follow a set pattern. First plugins check their settings, if default, they next go to their panel's settings. If the panel is also set to default then it defers to the addon's global settings. Finally, if the global settings are still set to default, then the hard coded defaults are used.

Note: It is recommended that you delete the folder(s) for an existing addon when updating to a different version. This is to keep files that are no longer used from taking up space.

Translators: To submit a translation please just edit existing files (example: DockingStation\Locales\deDE.lua and DockingStation_Config\Locales\deDE.lua) and send them to me.

That just means that the plugin is doing something unexpected. LDB allows for alterations/deviations from the outlined specs (that's why it is a warning and not an error), but if the change isn't important enough to be documented then it isn't important enough for me to waste time changing code.

Yeah, that doesn't define a type for itself. You can open it's RepairBroker.lua file and change the following (starting at line 9):
Code:
local Repair = {
	icon  = "Interface\\Icons\\Trade_BlackSmithing",
	label = L["Dur"],
	text  = "100%",
}
to:
Code:
local Repair = {
	type  = 'data source',
	icon  = "Interface\\Icons\\Trade_BlackSmithing",
	label = L["Dur"],
	text  = "100%",
}

I'd rather add some scaling option;P

That was explained few posts earlier. For RepairBroker you have to manually add type in the code.
As for prat: either change it's type to "data source" or remove addon text (in lua file) or wait until Prat's author fixes it;P

That is basically what I'm working towards. I'll add two new types, one of which will be 'group'. All that will do is give a way to indicate which plugins should always be moved together and/or relative to each other. It will also allow me to give options for the spacing between those plugins without effecting the spacing of plugins not in the group.

That was why I redid how the plugins are shown in the options. A group will show up like a plugin and then all the plugins that belong to that group will show up as sub-entries under it. So you can hide the group and such and have that apply to all its members.

AFter installing the newest version, I noticed that panels that were named "Panel 1" "Panel 2" etc were now named "Panel %id" in the rename field, but appeared as "Panel 1" in the right hand side. Intentional? Renaming to "Panel 1" makes the field behave properly.
I changed the way that settings worked. It used to be if you put a %s in it the first %s would get the panel's id number and the second (if provided) would give the total number of panels. So "Panel %s of %s" would show up as "Panel 1 of 5". In order to allow the order to be changed or multiple instances of the same value I changed it so that the panel's id now uses "$id" and the number of panels uses "$#". So now to get "Panel 1 of 5" you would use "Panel $id of $#". That field is really just a template of how you want the panel name to look. So you could do something like "Top (1 of 5)" or "1. Top" without having to rename the panel labels every time you add or remove a panel.

Two issues with newest version:
1- Options panel completely disappeared from interface->addons menu.
2- Some LDB plugins disappeared as well
1. Do you have Lua errors set to be shown and if so could you load up the game and then reload the UI again right after (since the first error doesn't show up on the initial loading)?

2. DockingStation no longer supports plugins that don't give a type. This is to help make LDB more viable in the generic sense. Any addon wanting to use LDB in a non-plugin sense shouldn't have to declare a type just to play nice with displays like this one.

VRUL could you please help me with somthing. I am trying to position some bars in exact (yes almost anal) locations. Could you explain to me how your coming up with these really odd #'s for x,y,width in the config
When your resolution is set to 1024x768 (the default), the Blizzard API for the screen size won't return a width of 1024 and height of 768. It returns the width as 1024 but the height as 767.99994277954, which is the exact same thing it returns at a resolution of 800x600. Internally the whole UI is basically treated as being at 1024x768 and any other video settings are scaled to work as that, with some exceptions in the case of wide-screen resolutions.

DockingStation also manipulates position and size information a bit. Everything is internally treated and saved as a percentage of the current resolution so that if you switch resolutions the positioning and sizing of everything will be proportionally the same with the new resolution. Basically if a panel takes up half the width of the screen in one resolution it will take up half the screen in any resolution you change to, the same applies to the height and offsets from its anchor point.

To get something lined up exactly I would suggest first changing the anchor for the panel to best match what you want. For things that will be centered with a screen edge use 'TOP', 'BOTTOM', 'LEFT', or 'RIGHT'. For anything else pick the corner that you want lined up the most and choose the anchor for the corner that it is closest to. Then hit the button to reset the anchor and reposition from there (you don't really need to reset the position but it may make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside).

Try uninstalling and reinstalling. You also might make sure that "Load out of date addons" is checked in your addon selection screen. If it still doesn't work after that, then its for certain a bug. You're not getting any errors are you?

Confirm that the config isn't loaded as delayed by typing /dockingstation. If the options come up then, you prolly have AddonLoader or something that delays loading of certain addons until they are needed.

2. This is probably due to some minor changes. Make sure that you can still enable/disable them in the config (once you have that working).

Always back up your files before an update, then if you have problems its easy to go back. If those solutions above don't work, try reinstalling it; perhaps your system had a hiccup during installation.

VRUL could you please help me with somthing. I am trying to position some bars in exact (yes almost anal) locations. Could you explain to me how your coming up with these really odd #'s for x,y,width in the config file -- if i remember right there #'s alone the line of 0000000001231231, etc (not exact sorry I am sending this while @ work).

I would highly appreciate any info and perhaps a suggestion to add some kind of function if the bars are not docked to bottom, top, etc to allow coordinate entry -- thanks!

1. Make sure you installed both DockingStation and DockingStation_Config, or that your installer did. You should have both those folders in your addons folder. Confirm that the config isn't loaded as delayed by typing /dockingstation. If the options come up then, you prolly have AddonLoader or something that delays loading of certain addons until they are needed.

2. This is probably due to some minor changes. Make sure that you can still enable/disable them in the config (once you have that working).

Always back up your files before an update, then if you have problems its easy to go back. If those solutions above don't work, try reinstalling it; perhaps your system had a hiccup during installation.

Ok, keep in mind this is a theoretical discussion and I have no idea how to program in lua or the WoW environment, so if this is totally impossible I'm sorry.

What about having a plugin that, in turn, shows OTHER plugins? Something that you could put all the raid icon "plugins" in and move them around, similar to having a specific bar for LuckyCharms that you move the raid icon plugins around inside. I don't know if that's possible or not, but if it is, it could make things like the micro menu and the raid charms a breeze to implement. I'm not sure if that's clear as mud, so please let me know if I can clarify.

AFter installing the newest version, I noticed that panels that were named "Panel 1" "Panel 2" etc were now named "Panel %id" in the rename field, but appeared as "Panel 1" in the right hand side. Intentional? Renaming to "Panel 1" makes the field behave properly.

This also reminded me about your LuckyCharms FuBar plugin, and I thought of something for that. I'll post it there too, just in case. Broker_Currency displays several icons next to their respective informational texts, and I thought that this might be a solution to the LuckyCharms issue. Maybe you could have a right click menu where you can reorder things, or a window that pops up to reorder the icons, then when you press "okay" the icons rearrange on the display. However Broker_Currency's author does it, there are more than one icons displayed, but I cannot change the order of icons. Perhaps this is a limitation to the libraries or just a coding oversight, but I thought that a bad idea is better than no idea, since I'm going the Opie way of marking and its really not as fast as I'd like it to be.
That's actually a bug on Blizzards end. Those embeded textures don't seem to get parented with the FontString they're in. I mentioned that issue awhile back but never bothered to try and find a work around to avoid another "tooltip" fiasco.
