Player Link Menu

Version: 1.10
by: ArtureLeCoiffeur [More]

This addon was written by Viper (http://www.viper.dk/WoW/) and published on WoWUI by the user Ryiort. I'm only keeping it alive.

This add-on allows you to open up a menu when clicking on a players name in chat. This will give you some basic options, for fast and easy access. So no more having to write when wanting to invite a player you're talking to or if you want to ignore that player.

It also extends the options available when clicking on a name. You can choose what actions should be performed when doing a normal click or while holding down Shift, Ctrl or Alt. It is all configurable from inside the game. Type /plm to view the options screen.

This add-on was developed before Blizzard added the same functionality to the defaul UI. However using PLM gives you a few more options to customize the menu and click behaviours to your liking.

I didn't touch that code, and I see no changes. Can you please elaborate?

There is still an issue. When you are already in a group/raid, the "invite" option still bugs out due to a change on how group/raid is detected. This change (below) is what I tested and appears to be working fine.

Code:
if (not IsInGroup() or (UnitIsGroupLeader("player") or UnitIsGroupAssistant("player"))) then

A fix has been found, thanks in part to a heads up Aezay.

"Replace GetNumPartyMembers() and GetNumRaidMembers() with GetNumGroupMembers()."

I made this change and the right click menu is now working. I've tested all the options and haven't received any following errors.

You would need to extract all texts from the LUA files and convert them to variables. Those you put in a localization file. Then you add you translations.

E.g. when the LUA code contains something like this:

Code:
DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("[Player Link Menu] Error when trying to perform action: Action not found.");
You convert it to

Code:
DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("[Player Link Menu] "..PLM_NOTFOUND);
And put this in localization.lua:

Code:
PLM_NOTFOUND = "Error when trying to perform action: Action not found."
if (GetLocale() == "deDE") then
  PLM_NOTFOUND = "Fehler beim Versuch, eine Aktion auszuf\195\188hren."
end
The file PlayerLinkMenu_variables.lua already contains most strings in English. Just move them to a new localization.lua file.

EDIT: I miss the "Target" feature and wonder if it's possible to implement this again through secure methods.

EDIT: I don't think it's possible to "Target" anymore.
IT IS possible to "target" this mod doesn't but the old PlayerMenu has been fanfixed and has Target, Focus and many other features.

PlayerMenu Right Click

The new patch (3.0.8) brokes all the addons that use the dropdown menu in chat.

The error appear when I right clic.
Then when I choose one function in the menu, nothing takes place.
I'm sorry, but my addon is called PlayerLinkMenu, it is only at version 1.7, and it does not include the version number in the directory under AddOns.

I found an addon called PlayerMenu on WoWUI and on WoWAce, but neither seems to have a version 4.0.

Sorry, but I can't help you. PlayerLinkMenu is working OK with 3.0.8.
