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.

TOC update.

Is it possible to fade the bar out so it only shows on mouse-over?

thx, I will add that to the next version.

I have that too, its a tft screen thingy. Make a screenshot and roate it 180 and you will see^^ Some more expensive panel types used by designers and such have a decrease in that effect. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TFT_LCD

could you add support for putting things in the center of the bars?
You have to drag one to the "Center Align" icon.

my tooltip flickers like mad if i dont put my cursor at just the right spot over items in the bar, i believe this to be because i use a tooltip addon called tiptac
I'll look into the tiptac problem
edit: fixed, I will upload it soon.

I've noticed two unusual issues with R43. neither is shatteringly important, but I'd like to mention both of them.

1. My bar texture seems to forget it's settings at every logon, forcing me to reset it. edit: This only happens for SharedMedia textures. I fixed this on my local copy by adding SharedMedia as an option dependency in the .toc

2. the bottom bar seems to be quite a bit lighter in color than the top bar, even though they seem to share a common setting. I originally thought this might be due to monitor calibration, but I've noted the same issue on my wife's computer too.

I have the same issue with my Tooltip flickering and I am using TipTac. Its like its updating really fast or wierd...

hmm about the sorting in the options:
should the chocolates be grouped by data type like they are currently or just all together sorted alphabetically?

Right now disable clicking or hiding bars will both still pop up the config dialogue on right click.
not any more, hope that helps.

thanks, works like a charm. I'd love to have "right click -> opens option menu of chocolate bar" disabled as well under one of the options. Right now disable clicking or hiding bars will both still pop up the config dialogue on right click.

What I want is that right clicking on the bar won't open the configuration menu or an option that hides the whole bar when in combat.
