AutoText
Version: v1.7.1-Release
by: PProvost [More]
About AutoText

AutoText is an addon for managing whispers, tells and other messages that you send frequently.

You can use it for strats, raid assignments, vent info and many other things.

Each message can be assigned to a category to let you group up messages in whatever way you like. Examples might include Officer, Raid, General, etc. The category is used to group related messages in the configuration UI and in the LibDataBroker tooltip.

Feature ideas or requests should be filed as Tickets on the CurseForge Project Site

Slash Commands

The following slash commands are available:
Slash Commands
Code:
/autotext     Pops up the configuration screen used to create and
              manage messages
/at           Same as /autotext
/atsay name   Sends the message with the given shortcut name
/atlist       Lists all configured messages
Message Targets

Each message can be configured to be sent to one of many different
targets:


Target & Equivalent WoW Slash Command
Code:
SAY            /say 
WHISPER        /w (will popup a dialog asking for the target of the whisper) 
YELL           /y 
PARTY          /p 
GUILD          /g 
OFFICER        /o 
RAID           /ra 
RAID_WARNING   /rw 
BATTLEGROUND   /bg 
REPLY          /r (will reply to the last person who sent you a whisper) 
TARGET         Sends the message to your current target 
GROUP          Automatically determines the correct group (Battleground, Raid or Party)

Token substitution


In the message text, you can use a special token and the addon will replace it with the appropriate
text. The format of the token is:


${unitid}


Where unitid is any of the valid unitids from the WoW API.
See http://www.wowwiki.com/UnitId for more information.


Examples:
${target}
${mouseover}
${focus}


Feature Backlog

The following features are under consideration for a future release:
  • Custom channel support (COMING SOON!)
  • Direct slash commands (e.g. /mymessage instead of /atsay mymessage)
  • Share messages w/ other AutoText users? (for sharing vent info w/ officers etc.)
  • Localization

Hiya. Latest version, running without embeds. Libqtipclick-1.1 (r9) is installed and enabled. My LDB display is button bin.

Code:
1x AutoText-v1.7-release.52\AutoText-LDB.lua:23: Cannot find a library instance of "LibQTipClick-1.1".
!Swatter-5.7.4568 (KillerKoala)\Support\LibRevision.lua:47: in function `LibStub'
AutoText-v1.7-release.52\AutoText-LDB.lua:23: in main chunk

Locals:
self = <table> {
 NewLibrary = <function> @ !Swatter\Support\LibRevision.lua:35:
 minors = <table> {}
 minor = 2
 IterateLibraries = <function> @ !Swatter\Support\LibRevision.lua:52:
 GetLibrary = <function> @ !Swatter\Support\LibRevision.lua:45:
 libs = <table> {}
}
major = "LibQTipClick-1.1"
silent = nil

You might make sure that the 'type' key is set to 'data source' when you create the LDB data object.
Actually, mine is set to "launcher" which is valid per the LDB spec. Check your AutoText-LDB.lua file to see if you see that there.

Dynamic Unit Name support.

I guess I got bored the other day, and decided to hack in support for substituting unit names into the texts.
First I was going to code something like '%t' for target, '%n' for name, etc.
But that wasn't very flexible considering all the different unit names the WoW API can resolve. So instead, I used a syntax such as '${unitid}' where 'unitid' is a UnitID as defined by this article: http://www.wowwiki.com/UnitId

So for example if I want my target name to appear in the text I can use ${target}, or if I want the target of my target I can do ${targettarget}.
Party and Raid members can be used such as ${party1} or ${raid10}.
I guess that a meta-group form could be added so that you could do ${groupX} so that it would auto-distinguish.

I'm PM'ing the changes to PProvost, in case he wants to include them.

Thanks. A fellow guildie reported this the other day. I will dig into it tonight.

Suggestion:

Tooltip needs collapseable catagories to keep the tooltip neat and tidy for multiple catagories and notes.

Tooltip gets rather large if you use alot of notes.

I was very excited to hear about this addon as it sounds like a great idea and could be very helpful.

I was due to make the switch to a data broker anyway so with a clean interface folder (no other addons) I installed a data broker and Auto Text and had quite a few troubles getting it to work.

I can go in to the options just fine and setup all my messages and fire them from there using the test button. But when I go to mouse over the icon in the LDB it will show the pop up just once and then cannot be shown again until restarting the game (I can still fire from the test button in the options after this happens).

Thinking it may have been an issue with the data broker I was using I went and tried every other LDB I was aware of and all had the same problem. I even tried all the older versions of Auto Text and the unreleased beta versions and none of them had any success. I don't believe I am doing anything wrong here so could this be a bug?

An interesting add-on. I'm going to try it out!

About using aliases (on the to-do list), perhaps the author could ensure compatibility with Chat Alias Lite?

FYI: This is not an endorsement for Chat Alias Lite since I've just started to use that as well and I'm not very familiar with it. It seems to me these two add-ons would go great together.

Also, the addon is not listed (and thus, not visibile) for users of Broker2Fubar. The addon however is configurable within the in-game Interface/Addons options section, so it;s definitely enabled and functioning.
