Broker Nameplates
Version: 1.1
by: Barjack [More]
Exceedingly simple Data Broker panel which displays the state of your Nameplate toggle. A single color-coded letter is displayed, speficially:

N = Nameplates off (grey)
F = Nameplates on for friendly targets (green)
E = Nameplates on for enemy targets (red)
B = Nameplates on for both of the above (blue)

Possibly useful if, like me, you tend to turn plates off in towns and then forget what their state is just before a pull or whatever, and find the behavior of the toggle button very hard to discern at times without targets nearby as a reference point.

If you want different colors or longer words or whatever, just crack open the .lua file and edit the obvious strings in updateObject().

Of course, you will need a Data Broker display addon of some sort for this to do anything.
1.1
- TOC update to 4.3
- Fixed issue where the initial nameplate state wasn't displayed correctly immediately upon login (by changing loading event to more accurate version).

1.02
- TOC Update to 30300

Ah, I see. I thought this was a broker replacement for the Fubar Nameplate toggle, which is purely fantastic, but sadly less than useful with Fubar now dead.

I am currently using FuBar_NameToggleFu which has clicks to change various nameplate displays.

Someone ported it for DataBroker displays in Broker_NameToggle

but it apparently doesn't work with Broker2Fubar, which I have to use because I still haven't found LDB replacements for some FuBar plugins. So I have to stick with the FuBar one for now.
Anyway, maybe one of those could give you some idea for the click functions, if you chose to go that route.

Thank you very much.
