Mule Filter
Version: r41
by: ArrchDK [More]
Announcement 12/08/2010
While I can't say for sure that I am coming back to WoW, let alone addon development, I have been contemplating playing again. If I do decide to do so, and I decide that I want to start developing Addons again, then I would pick this project back up.

Summary
This was created for a guildy, but I decided to upload it to WoWI in case others were looking for something like it.

Create up to 10 filters per server that will automatically send all mail items within a specified criteria to a specified recipient. Criteria can be disenchantables, subcatagorized by rarity or specified item names. All filters created will be listed within the main GUI.

Visual Indicators
Filters with grayed recipients and criteria do not have any available criteria within the player's bags.
Filters with golden names and criteria have one or more available critieria within the player's bags. To see a list of what criteria was found, mouse over the button and a tooltip will appear"
- Grayed critiers = not found.
- Golden criteria = found.

Commands
To create a filter, click the "Create Filter" Button.
To approve all found filters, click "Approve All"
To approve a single filter, remove a filter, or change a filter, click the appropriate filter.
To enable "Auto-run," a feature that will send all the filtered mail out when you open your inbox, simply click "Auto-run" in the top right.
--[[ Release Notes r41 ]]--
-- Fixed small typo causing bank error.

--[[ Release Notes r40 ]]--
[[ Fixes ]]
-- Reworked code for sending mail and for scanning to optimize and hopefully eliminate some issues with mail not sending.
-- Resolved issue with sending more than 12 items.
-- Changed check for soulbound items to checking if item is sendable, and applied it to all functions. This will eliminate issues with the addon trying to send unsendable items
-- Resolved issue with screen not updating properly after sending an item.

--[[ Release Notes r30 ]]--
[[ Features ]]
-- Added Auto Run feature which will automatically run all found filters when the Mail box is opened.
[[ Fixes ]]
-- Rearranged code and renamed objects to be more streamlined
-- Fixed text display for update notification command.
-- Fixed .TOC description information
-- Fixed issue with update lib that was causing people to receive errors.

--[[ Release Notes r20 ]]--
[[ Features ]]
-- Added version notification lib file. If party, raid, guild or battleground member has newer version, player is notified. '/mf' to toggle notification on/off
-- Pressing tab while the Send To and Item Name edit boxes have focus will toggle cursor between them.
-- Modified function to allow more than 12 items to be sent at once (Multiple mails)
-- Creater "Filter" button within bank tab that will show a dropdown menu of available filters that can be run. Running a filter will transfer all items that fit the criteria from the bank to the player's inventory.
[[ Fixes ]]
-- Slight adjustment to Filter tab location, should look more streamlined now.
-- No longer shows filter found items and will not run filter if player is on character of recipient.
-- Removed print statement on start-up and unnecessary functon that was being used for test purposes.
-- If player closes Mail Panel w/ a Dropdown menu open, dropdown menu will also close.
-- Fixed start-up message (had an unnecessary 'v')

Awesome mod for those like me with 5 80s, each with their own professions and a lowbie auction toon. Especially for my Miner who sends ore/gems to my JCer on a regular basis. And all my cloth goes to the tailor, etc... Thank you for this masterpiece.

Is there any way to separate the list by Realm?
I've got characters on multiple realms, yet both my disenchant targets for each realm are shown.

The addon is called mule filter, the folder and associated files are named arrchfilter because for whatever reason, the client didn't like when I set the folders and files to mulefilter. I don't know if the client reserves that, but I haven't really looked into it much.

Also as to the idea of adding different criteria, it would be great to have a way to set it to send all Herbs, all skins/leather, or all mined items to diffent alts.

I've heard of an old addon called bulkmail that did something like that, but I understand it is out of date and causing errors.

Thanks...

I'll look into it.

Something along the lines of NeatFreak, but for mailing, not sorting your bags. Thanks for the great work nonetheless!!
I haven't implemented this. When designing this for a guildy he only indicated by name and by disenchant as the criteria he was looking for, so I didn't both indicating others. I may look into adding different criteria, but I do have a few other mods in development right now as well.
Originally posted by xtoq I also got this bug when visiting my bank with the newest version (I didn't turn off all my addons yet though):
I've had one other reporting a similar issue, so I'm looking into this currently.

Edit: Found the bank error Fixed in r41

Doesn't for me, what weirdness are you referring to?

I attempted to create a filter for Deadnettle (herb) while there were 8 stacks in my bags. I approved the filter but only an empty message was sent to the recipient.

Mule Filter was the only addon enabled at the time.

Yes, that's what I was referring to.

I tried saving the filter with just the name filled out and no items listed and modifying it after, but I simply can't get my cursor to appear in the Item list to type in the name of things I want filtered. /shrug
Try click the very top portion of the input box. For whatever reason, the editbox size dynamically updates with each line and it won't let me set it so that it's the same size as the visual frame created around it.
