Bazooka  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v2.4.1
by: mitch0 [More]

Bazooka is a Data Broker Display similar in functionality and looks to FuBar.

Featrue highlights

  • Top/Bottom alignment or free moving of bars.
  • Left-click drag moves, right-click drag resizes the bar (unless the frames are locked).
  • Drag-and-drop plugin placement with highlighted drop positions.
  • Configurable background / font / icon size.
  • The usual options for data broker displays (show text/icon/label, optionally show title in place of label if it's missing).
  • Support of iconCoords and icon[RGB] (TomTom arrow, for example).
  • Left / Center-Left / Center / Center-Right / Right placement position for plugins within bars, allowing easy layout of plugins. Plugins placed in the Center area are centered as a bunch.
  • Optional auto-fade while in combat / out of combat.
  • Optionally disable mouse / tooltips.
  • Optional simple tooltips (just show title if Alt is held while moving the mouse pointer over the plugin).
  • Optional highlight on mouseover for the active plugin.
  • Load-on-demand configuration options, small memory footprint for "standard" operation.
  • Bulk mode configuration that allows configuring multiple bars/plugins easily.
  • Restrict plugin text width (since 1.8.3)

Note for v1.8.0: Multiple top/bottom bars are attached to each other now, no need to fiddle with the tweak anchor settings. As a side effect, previous tweak settings are reset, so if you needed those to get rid of the 1-pixel-gap, set it again for your top bar. Sorry about that.
Usage

Getting started
  • Create new bars from the main options window
  • Drag plugins to desired location
  • Drag plugins off bars to disable them

Using the bulk configuration (standard method)
  1. Uncheck Auto-apply.
  2. Check the bars/plugins you want the settings to apply to.
  3. Check Apply next to the settings you want to change, and set them to the value you need.
  4. Click Apply at the bottom of the options. The changes you selected will be applied to all selected bars/plugins at this point.

Using the bulk configuration (auto-apply method)
  1. Check Auto-apply.
  2. Check the bars/plugins you want the settings to apply to.
  3. Change the settings (or click the Apply text next to them if their current value is the one you want). The changes will be applied immediately to all selected bars/plugins.


Slash commands

/bazooka - open configuration
/bazooka locked - toggle locked/unlocked state

Detailed configuration options

This change log is outdated. See the auto-generated logs on Curse for recent changes.

v1.8.7:
- fix libjostle errors since patch 3.3.5

v1.3.0:

- added Opacity option to plugin display settings, removed individual opacity values from text/label/suffix color
- use Default profile instead of Character profile by default
- added option to tweak anchor positions
- enabled workaround for embedded icons not using effective alpha value
- added option to fit detached bars to their content's width (ticket-5)
- separate Side spacing setting to Left spacing and Right spacing

Thanks for the feedback!

I _think_ I know what's happening now: if you have set the option to fade the bars out-of-combat, then after the pet battle they come back to life as "faded out", just not completely hidden as during the pet battle. Unfortunately the logic that re-enables plugin updates are only present in the "fadeIn()" function, and that's why you needed to mouseover the bars.

Will try to fix it today. Could you test that indeed the "fade out of combat" setting is causing the issue? (I don't have an active subscription now so can't really test pet battles)

cheers,
mitch

Odd, I disabled all addons except Bazooka and Broker_Microclock, and it still happened. But after wiping Bazooka's saved variables the bar updates fine after finishing a pet battle. Will configure Bazooka again and see if it still persists.

edit: I've uploaded a backup copy of my Bazooka.lua saved variable if you want to see if you can spot anything causing it: http://pastebin.com/S8Bbjkyq

Well, that definitely Shouldn't Happen (tm)... Does the bar become visible after the pet battle with "old" plugin texts and no updates until you mouseover, or the bar stays hidden until you mouseover? Also, are you running the latest version of Bazooka (v2.3.0)?

Hello,

Do you hide your bars during a pet battle? Do you have any error reporting addons (like bugsack) installed? Are there any errors reported when the pet battle is over?

cheers,

Hello.
I see this overlapping buttons too and my current font are "2002".

maybe I'm wrong... is the overlapping part as large as the icon?
but tony hide's the icons...

returns a GetWidth on a CreateFontString-element different results by use of different fonts?
ok I'm definitely too tired... Bed I come

Greetings
Hizuro

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Please fix for 5.4?

Hello,

I think this problem might be related to the font you use for the bar. Did you use the same font when testing with DockingStation? Can you try to reproduce the problem with Bazooka with a narrower font?

cheers,
mitch

If you have interest in reproducing this with the same profil and brokers than me I can upload a small pack for you. This happens especialy after leaving the game without going to the loginscreen, then login again on a different char - going into the /bazooka options under bars I can change the Symbol spacing or the bar hight and everything will look normal again - and I don't even have any symbols enabled.
I'll now go and test other broker displays if they maybe have the same problem so I can check if the problem is with the brokers I use.

EDIT:
Tested chocolatebar - it seams to have simmilar problems with some plugins. Instead if stucking them together it just shows them as "..." also it has a bug with desaturation and no option to put border arround text.

EDIT 2:
Also Tested Docing Station (thats realy out of date but tested anyway) and here I can't reproduce the bug. Maybe thats because it can't show only the text or only the label of a broker display

Re: Re: Issue moving plugins

Thanks, I switched it to using profiles tonight on my dev setup. It actually works better this way. Now I no longer have to work around Bars that are not created yet before setup is run. Appreciate the help!

Re: Issue moving plugins

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply, I was kinda busy the last couple of days... Anyway, I think the best approach for you would be to create three distinct profiles (as in AceDB) and switch between them when the user clicks your arrows. Take a look at how LibDualSpec does it, for example. That way there'll be only one active bar and even when you unlock the bars, the others (belonging to the other two profiles) will not pop up out of nowhere. With this setup you could have the same plugin present on multiple bars even which is not possible with your current method (as far as I understand).

Hope this helps. If you'd like to discuss this, you can usually catch me on #wowuidev or #wowace on irc.freenode.net.

cheers,
mitch

When I unlock Bazooka and try to rearrange plugins on the bar other bars that are hidden show up in the positions available and Its really difficult to get them in the right spot on the right bar.

I understand you may not have intended to have the bars work this way so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Please fix for 5.4?

Hello,

It sounds like a plugin issue. Broker_Everything has caused various problems in the past... Could you try disabling that plugin, or at least move it to some other area to check if you still get this error?

Thanks,
mitch

ps: how many plugins do you have in total? There's some limitation on saved variables size now, maybe you can hit that with a _lot_ of plugins.
