ChocolateBar (Broker Display)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1
by: yess [More]
ChocolateBar is a sweet display addon for broker plugins
Basically its a Titan-panel or Fubar replacement.

Any data broker addon you have will be put on a pice of chocolate and together they create a chocolate bar on the top of your screen.

Main Features

* Easy config, simply drag some chocolate and drop points will show. The idea is to easily get rid of a plugin or disable the text. See pics.
* Multiple bars - top or bottom as many as you want.
* Move bars anywhere you want.
* More Chocolate - a broker plugin to show a second bar that will autohide again. Great for launchers or other plugins you don't need visible all the time
* Support for icon colors and coordinates like used by TomTom

Options for:
* Show bars on mouse over only
* Hide bars in combat
* Set a fixed width for any plugin
* Change icon size
* Change textures, colours and a lot more...

Where to get more chocolate?

.)Updated list
.)WoWInterface
.)WowAce

Usage

Right click the panel
or type "/chocolatebar" to open the options menu.
You can also go to the great Blizz addons menu if you like
windows that cant be moved or resized...

You can get alpha versions from http://www.wowace.com/projects/chocolatebar/files/

You miss a feature or had to much chocolate, please let me know. I look forward to your feedback.

QFT.

really love wot you've done, minimalist yet effective, and having found Skinner was preventing me from seeing the full configuration options I've now adjusted the hieght too!

Great job, really makes my day when a addon works with minimal fuss from me and does its job well!

Yess, I did not see if there was a way to hide in combat. I do not have an issue with it up there all the time, I was just going to try it out if that was an option.
So far so good otherwise. I recommend it all the time.

Display Options

I'm a new user and I'm loving this broker display.

I just have a small suggestion that could hopefully be added. I'd like it to be able to hide bars to the top or bottom and dynamically move other bars. For example, let's say I have bar1 on top of the screen and bar2 just beneath it, I'd like to be able to autohide bar1 and only appear when I mouseover to the top of the screen, but I want bar2 to move to the very top of the screen while bar1 is hidden.

Keep up the great work.

Talking Re: Re: I also switched from FuBar...

Switched from FuBar, I have tried several broker displays (all of them, I think). ChocolateBar is by far the best I have tried

@Mook: thanks for the tip about Lonny Micro Menu. PicoButtons works nicely with makerocketgonow, but .....

I really didn't care for picoButtons, the size was just too ginormous across the bar.

I've been using Lonny Micro Menu instead and loving it - basically puts a single icon on your Chocolate bar, if you right-click the icon it drops down a full list of the normal menu items.

Can find it here:

I'd love a built-in option for the micromenu - and the ability to increase the height of ChocolateBar a bit. In your copious spare time, of course
See if this is what your looking for - http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...cobuttons.aspx

The option to center a plugin is only there because if you do not have a plugin in the center it's the only way to get it there.

Once you have one plugin in the center others will stick to it on drag and drop the same way the plugin will stick to the left or right.

But I may add the additional options, also the drag and drop could work better but thats a lot of work.

Re: Fantastic Work!

Just wanted to make a quick post to say I took the plunge from FuBar to LDB this afternoon, switching over to replacements for about 25-30 FuBar plugins. I spent a couple of hours tweaking around with Fortress and it just didn't do it for me - gave ChocolateBar a try and 20 minutes later I was ready to play.

Awesome AddOn, really made my transition to LDB as painless as possible. Thanks for all your work on this!
Ya I agree here. Same for me. Once I understood WHAT the idea behind "LDB" was, then I made the jump. The Chocolate Bar setup was relatively quick and easy to manipulate. I think the basics are covered here for those that need any tips.

As far as trying to justify your icons to left or right, just drag them to where you want. Say you drag one to the left, I drag it to the FAR left and drop it in front of the others on that side, this seems to justify it. You can move it around on the left side after you have done that. I agree that an option justify to left or right would improve this, but for now that is what I do.

justification

I see the option to center an LDB, but how about to left or right-justify 'em?

It seems that one of your plugins does not set its tooltip properly.
I can fix the error message but the tooltip of the plugin will still not be shown.

It would be possible for some tooltips but not for all of them because some plugins like Ara Guild create their own tooltips.
