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

Version: 0.5.5 (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.

I'll continue following your work and eventualy migrate to it (for now following the rule of "if it's not broken don't fix it").
I've also bene evaluating LDB display addons, and I will agree that this is the best by far, especially for those of us who are used to a titan/fubar type addon. Keep up the good work! I'm sure you'll get that gap problem addressed shortly TY for the addon!

I love this but!

My settings won't save no matter what I do.... reset my wtf... even try logging after setting up to force a save... all to no avail.

I use 2 bars rather then 1 ... is that causing an issue perhaps?

1 = BACKGROUND
2 = LOW
3 = MEDIUM
4 = HIGH
5 = DIALOG
6 = FULLSCREEN
7 = FULLSCREEN_DIALOG
Thanks for the help Works like a charm

Is it possible to change the strata of the addon to background?
I use DockingStation and StatBlockCore at the same time because I'd like to have some plugins around the map and others in the top center. Now the bar overflows other displayed addons which I need to klick on.

Can you tell me how to do this (even if it's changing the code)?

Thanks in advance

Re: Error on startup

got a strange error on startup of WoW. All addons I loaded to be shown in DockingStation get a different text sizes, even if I set them to don't even show any text.
I got that same error until I set the default for the entire addon and then set everything to use the defaults. After that, problem went away. Hope that helps.

I can't reproduce this error and I'm not sure why. I did find some other bugs with using default options while trying to track it down. I'm hoping with those bug fixes and a slight order of operations change I made that it is corrected, if not, I'll keep trying.

Error on startup

Hi there,

got a strange error on startup of WoW. All addons I loaded to be shown in DockingStation get a different text sizes, even if I set them to don't even show any text. I know how to turn it of, so my settings will be used, but it's anoying to have to set it back on every singe start.

I add a short video to show the error:
PS: Using german client
