V Difficulty (LDB)
Version: 1.8
by: Verissi [More]
V_Difficulty (Verissi's Difficulty) is a simple LDB data feed to display the current dungeon/raid difficulty settings. It also allows you to change the settings.

Yes, I got tired of right-clicking my unit frame to check what they were set to
1.8
* Fixed raid difficulty settings. I'm planning on rewriting a chunk of this, but this works
for now.
1.7
* Updated for 5.2 (TOC/rev bump and fixed function calls)
1.6
* Changed separator to | since it was requested and looked better anyway
* Fixed a bug triggered by entering a 40-player instance. Should properly show
"40" as the difficulty in the broker display, but it's not an available difficulty setting
(intentional on Blizzard's part).
1.5
* Updated for 5.0.x (TOC/rev bump and fixed function calls)
* Added Challenge Mode (CM) to the list of dungeon difficulties
* Added a few (somewhat superfluous) event handlers to catch corner cases where
difficulty changes are made, but the addon doesn't notice
* Made sure the difficulty abbreviations aren't nil when setting the LDB text
1.4
* TOC and rev bump for 4.0.1 and beta
1.3
* TOC and rev bump for 3.3.0
1.2
* Fixed LDB object type so it shows the text properly (no idea why I changed it before)
* Added Minion tag in TOC
* Tweaked tooltip layout a bit to make it less...wide
1.1
* Added the ability to change dungeon/raid difficulty by right-clicking
* Recoloured tooltip text and added a note about the right-click functionality
1.0
* Initial release

Very handy to have, thank you

And I'd like to add the request for settings to be changed from the plugin if it's not much work. It would definitely make a very handy addon indispensable.

Definitely looking forward to checking this out and would love to be able to change difficulties from the display as well. Thanks for a nice mod!

Changing difficulty

Already planning for that and, if I get time tomorrow, I'll put that in there. If not tomorrow, it'll have to wait until after Blizzcon

1.1 uploaded

I just uploaded v1.1 that adds the ability to change the difficulties. Just right-click it to bring up a menu to do so. I recoloured the text in the tooltip and added a note to indicate the right-click functionality as well.

Why wait until tomorrow what you can do tonight, right?

v1.1 of V_Difficulty only provides its info in a tooltip on mouseover when using with StatBlockCore v2.61. The text on the display block is only the default "V_difficulty".

Would be nice if this showed its info directly on the LDB display as shown in your "Pictures" screenshot.

I'll check into that. The only reason it should show the name is if it can't determine the difficulty settings. I'll see if I can't make that routine a bit more resilient.

Edit: Ignore the above, I know why (DOH). I'll fix it and upload 1.2 tonight.

v1.2 is uploaded and should fix this. For some reason, I changed the LDB object type to a launcher at some point (don't ask, I don't know why I did it). /foreheadsmack

I also tweaked the tooltip layout a bit so it's not so wide and added the Minion tag to the TOC for easier updating that way. Enjoy!

Probably as you added the difficulty change via LDB plugin or so.
BTW: Have fun on BlizzCon!

I am using v1.2 and ButtonBin. I can't change a difficulty by clicking on it.

I'll check into this tomorrow and see if I can't get it fixed for ya! *collapses in a heap from the long flight home from Anaheim*

Update: I just tested it and couldn't reproduce it for the life of me. Right-clicking is definitely pulling up the dropdown menu for me. Is it giving any errors or just not showing the dropdown to change the difficulties?

Re: not working correct

Sorry for the delay! Life's been kicking me in the head lately

I'm working on an update now, since the dungeon difficulty functions changed names (and Challenge Mode was added) in 5.0.x. I've seen that bug myself a few times, but can't seem to reliably reproduce it or figure out what causes it. I'll put in a bit more work on that and see if I can nail it down.

I should have an updated version today or tomorrow for 5.0!
