DockingStation (Display)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.5.3 (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.

Panels

Is it possible to make DockingStation panels click through? Like at all times unless unlocked. Need it very much.

Aww... I originally picked DockingStation as my FuBar replacement *because* it could scale all the tooltips, since a lot of the FuBar2Broker ones ended up with large tooltips once "ported". :-/ None of the ones that scale are ones with tooltips I actually want to scale.

I included that Font my self and it worked up to the Update for Docking

No, that was just a stupid mistake on my part (I removed some code on a cleaning pass that I shouldn't have). That problem is fixed with the version I just put up.

Hi Vrul,

Several users of my plugin Broker_LFG, which makes use of iconCoords, report that it does not work with DockingStation.

To test, I loaded up DockingStation, and though my plugin looks okay at first, once I join the LFD queue and the icon begins animating -- it uses the same texture file and animation technique as the default UI's LFG minimap button -- the following error is triggered repeatedly:

Code:
19x DockingStation-0.4 (Beta)\Textures.lua:41: attempt to index local 'self' (a nil value)
<string>:"safecall Dispatcher[5]":4: in function <[string "safecall Dispatcher[5]"]:4>
<in C code>: ?
<string>:"safecall Dispatcher[5]":13: in function `?'
CallbackHandler-1.0-5 (CallbackHandler-1.0):92: in function `Fire'
LibDataBroker-1.1-4 (LibDataBroker-1.1):28: in function <...rface\AddOns\LibDataBroker-1.1\LibDataBroker-1.1.lua:20>
Broker_LFG-3.3.3.wowi:revision\Broker_LFG.lua:125: in function <Broker_LFG\Broker_LFG.lua:119>
Line 125 in Broker_LFG.lua simply sets the plugin's iconCoords field to a new value, inside an OnUpdate handler that's throttled to 0.1 seconds.

Both my plugin and TomTom's crazy arrow feed (which is the only other plugin I know of offhand that uses iconCoords) exhibit the same error-causing behavior in DockingStation, while working fine in Bazooka and NinjaPanel. I haven't tested any other displays, but I haven't gotten any reports naming anything other than DockingStation.

The error also prevents my plugin's click handler from functioning, which is how the problem was originally spotted by the users who reported it to me.

Is there anything I can do to make my plugin more DockingStation-friendly, or is this something that needs to be fixed in the display?

I saw mention of this below, and wondered if it would be what I needed, but I couldn't find it. Perhaps I just looked in the wrong places in the config. Will have to check again when I am on next.

Thanks!

That is now done via a drop-down menu from right-clicking the plugin's name in the plugin list.

Font scaling should work just fine. Only two things regarding fonts are different from the previous version:
  1. Vertical adjust now allows for a full range of movement to the top/bottom of the plugin. The percentage of movement is based on the amount of space left between the font and the plugin's top/bottom edge.
  2. Instead of an option "Same as Text" for label/suffix there is now an option for "Same as Label" for text/suffix (this is why all font settings were reset). The reason for this change was so that the text/suffix option could be hidden for launchers and still allow for a logical progression of option defaults.

The fonts available to DockingStation are provided via LibSharedMedia. If some fonts are showing up in the previous version but not the new one could you provide the name of the font(s) and the addon(s) that supply them?

This is not an error but a result of my removing the special tooltip handling code. Tooltip scaling still works for all but one case of the LDB spec, unfortunately that is the more popular approach taken by plugin authors.

Yes, my label setting (was a default plugins setting to disable the labels) didn't translate in the update either.

One other thing...
