Quest number LDB feed

I know it may sound lazy, but it'd be awesome sauce if you could add an LDB feed to show how many quests you have/canHave, like beql had, would be awesome. I use it as a quick reference quite often, myself.

Also, would it be possible to prevent the frame art from showing when 'lock frame' is toggled on?

Nice work though. I think i've finally found my replacement. =)

I'll add this to the list of features I want to add.

Do you mean for the tracker? You want the frame to not show even on mouseover?

Heya

if it is in the scope of your addon then I would like to request some coloring of the quest tracker ( like smoothQuest did ):
1) a quest objective coloring based on progress
2) a quest header coloring based on level


Thanks for the addon

I'm fairly certain that's what he means. I'd like to second the idea, as well. I don't mind the new tracker, and I like your additions. I'm not too keen on the artwork though, which is why I had the default UI option of "Disable mouseover" checked. Your addon seems to override that setting, since I currently have it checked yet the artwork show on mouseover.

Arnath! Thank you so, SO much for this AddOn. I've been using bEql forever, and spent literally hours and hours yesterday trying to hack it to work with the 3.1 patch and the new WatchFrame with no success (I only succeeded in breaking more things).

Instead I spent 5 minutes downloading and installing aEql and DoubleWide, now my universe is again well and truly ordered.

Thanks for your work on this.

Yeah the disable mouseover option makes the thing unmovable and disables some other stuff so aQuest sort of ignores it. I can add back a way to make the backdrop not show though.

Sorry, but it's fairly unlikely that I end up adding colors. I don't really personally like progress/level based coloring as a feature so unless it's something a LOT of people want, I'd rather not put it in.

Nice addon, thanks for the work you've put into it. Like other posters, I also would like to see the frame hidden on mouseovers, I don't like the tracker artwork popping up.

I do have a couple of queries:

With the tracker locked and mouseovers disabled, would it be possible to allow "click-throughs"? By this, I mean you could click within the quest tracker area and it acts as though nothing is there, so you could rotate the camera for example. As it stands, I essentially have to avoid clicking anywhere on the right of my screen if I want to alter my camera view; very annoying when I'm in combat and am tracking several quests. The exception of course would be retaining the ability to click quest items within the tracker.

Also, would it be possible to add a vertical-spacing option for the tracker? Currently there are quite large gaps between each tracked quest, even with the font size set to low. I don't have a lot of free screen estate so I would like the option to have the tracker be as compact as possible.

I realise you might not be able to implement these features but they would turn a good addon into a great one for me. Thanks.

Done, I didn't really mean to disable this feature. If the tracker is locked you can "click-through" the objectives (but not the quest titles for obvious reasons).

Also, would it be possible to add a vertical-spacing option for the tracker? Currently there are quite large gaps between each tracked quest, even with the font size set to low. I don't have a lot of free screen estate so I would like the option to have the tracker be as compact as possible.
Also done. The large spacing honestly bothered me too at first, I just didn't want to set the spacing to something arbitrary that I liked but other people might not. For whatever reason having an option for it didn't occur to me.

Silly question...

Thank you for this! The objectives weren't working that well and I was missing CTCore's version, and now I don't have to worry!

I too like the mod and thanks for your work on it. I have a problem with mine which may not be Inquests fault, but I wanted to ask anyway.

I like to move my quest tracker to the top right of my screen. I can move it there easily and then press lock. But as soon as I get a quest piece or a new quest whatever, it jumps back down to almost the center of the right side of my screen. Can you please help me so that it will stay at the top right.

Thanks again

Couple requests
1) If the "auto resize" for vertical is set to Up, could you anchor the frame on the bottom. That way it fills upwards from the bottom, and if you minimize/collapse the window, it would drop down to the bottom of the frame.

2) Seperate the options for auto resize. I'd like it to resize upwards, but not change the width. Instead of a checkbox for both together, just add "None" into the two dropdowns to disable resizing in that respect.

Other than that, awesome mod.

Can you be more specific about your issue? In particular, at what resolution do you run and where specifically are you moving the tracker? To the spot where the minimap normally is?

Option to Disable Quest Tracker

Can you add an option to disable the quest tracker entirely? I use quest helper's tracker.

Doesn't QuestHelper just hide the default tracker already?
