Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2
by: Seerah [More]

Note: This addon has been rewritten because of the changes to the quest tracker in WoD. Most everything has been re-implemented so far. (Button skinning has not been added yet, for example.)


KNOWN ISSUE: Blizzard's new quest tracker is very delicate and taints very easily, not allowing you to use quest items from the tracker itself. If this happens and a window pops up, click "Ignore". You can use one of several available addons to use quest items. I use the quest items ring on OPie, for example, or there is also QuickQuestItem or ExtraQuestButton or QuestItemButtonFix.

This addon will add many improvements to the new quest tracker frame. The slash command is /wfww. You may also alt-click the tracker's collapse button to access the options.

Features:
  • allows the quest tracker to be moved wherever you please
  • quest tracker will collapse in whichever direction it's anchored to (just up or down in WoD currently)
  • quest tracker remembers collapsed state
  • option to have scrollable quest tracker
  • adjust the scale of the quest tracker
  • adjust the font, font size, font flag (outline, etc.), or remove shadow
  • option to remove the art behind the section titles
  • adjust the spacing between lines (disabled in WoD currently)
  • give the quest tracker a background and/or border (border can be class-colored)
  • optional support for rActionButtonStyler to skin quest item buttons
  • adds a tooltip for quests to display their objective text
  • allows you to minimize/maximize (toggle) the tracker via keybind
  • option to automatically collapse the tracker when entering an instance or during pet battles
  • shortcuts added to the collapse button (toggle Quest Log, Achievement Frame, addon's options)
  • global or character specific profiles


History:
With the new quest tracker losing its ability to be moved freely, I set about adding support for it back into my minimap addon, PocketPlot. But it just wasn't as simple anymore with the way it was coded. So, I set out to create a standalone addon (or at least a module for PocketPlot). Originally named Movable WatchFrame, I started adding other features to the addon. Then I had to change its name, because it did much more than just moved the tracker. Thanks to Recompense for suggesting "Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?"


Looking for more?
These are other addons to enhance your questing experience which are tried and tested with WFWW. If you know of any more, let me know via PM and I can add them to this list.
  • Quelevel: Adds quest levels to the tracker, quest log, and gossip frames
  • Jobs'a'goodn: Plays sounds upon completion of quests and their objectives
  • QuestRouterLite: Adds the game's quest POIs to the minimap and works with TomTom to create waypoints for them automagically
  • TomTom: Allows you to set waypoints to destinations including a new feature to automatically show the way for quests
  • LightHeaded: Shows comments from the Wowhead website's quest database in a window attached to your quest log frame.



Known Issue:
If you alter the font size too much, you may have to reload your UI in order to have the quest tracker redrawn. Some text may also overlap if it flows onto a second line. In this case, consider adjusting the whole frame's scale instead.

v.2.2
- updated TOC for 6.2
- added new option to display number of quests in log at top of tracker
- fixed display of "Objectives" text when the tracker is scrolled and then minimized
- right-clicking the minimize button to show the quest log will now click "View All Quests" for you - which is the reason why you opened the log, right?

v.2.1.1
- fix bug with hidden scrollbar intercepting your mouse when you have scrolling disabled
- fix bug with pet battles (new objective tracker hides by default now, so WFWW's collapse in pet battles option now keeps the tracker from hiding, but will still collapse it)

v.2.1
- tracker now inside a scroll frame - maybe fixed taint with delicate quest item buttons???
- securehook tracker's SetPoint function instead of overwriting - this should help the delicate flower as well
(Note: nope, still broken)
- tracker now inside a scroll frame! - scroll through your quests and stuff (can disable in options)
- option to disable art behind section titles

v.2.0.1
- removed offending code that was causing taint that prevented you from using quest items - new tracker, why you have to be so delicate??? (this also caused an option or two to disappear, and you may need to reload the UI if making changes to the font or font size)
- yay, better solution to keybind code changes! (NOTE: do a clean install or delete the old bindings.xml file)
- fixed the nil "header" error
- catching a few more fontstrings

v.2.0
- rewritten for WoD
- most features have been re-implemented
- please file a bug report at my portal if you find any issues

v.1.9
- updated TOC for 5.2
- updated libraries

v.1.8.1
- should always be able to collapse/expand the watch frame now, even when the default UI doesn't think so
- will no longer show you as tracking 1 objective when really tracking nothing

v.1.8
- updated TOC for 5.1
- option to collapse watch frame during pet battles

v.1.7.4
- updated TOC for MoP
- updated libs
- removed "Monochrome" font flag because it crashes the client currently
- changed "Thick Outline" to "Monochrome Outline"

v.1.7.1
- updated libs
- updated TOC number
- tweaked options layout to fit larger window

v.1.7
- new: option to color border by class
- changed: border alpha now has it's own option (instead of being set with border color)

v.1.6
- updated TOC to 40100
- updated libs
- added option to automagically collapse tracker when entering an instance

v.1.5.4
- updated libs

v.1.5.3
- watch frame now expands if you get an auto-quest popup when it's collapsed

v.1.5.2
- fixed expand/collapse button again - now it's not too high
- bumped TOC version cause I forgot to before

v.1.5.1
- raise strata of collapse button so that its usable even if header text overlaps it from a large font size

v.1.5
- added a keybind to toggle (min/max) the quest tracker. You can set it in the WFWW options

v.1.4
- support for wide quest tracker feature for 3.3.3
- support for rActionButtonStyler skins (well, sorta - it just looks to see if it's installed, and then uses the skin texture/color)
- new options to change line spacing (thanks, seebs)
- random bug fixes and code cleanup for 3.3.3 and above changes

v.1.3.1
- fixed bug when mousing over achievements. Now you'll see the tooltip for the achievement instead!

v.1.3
- added tooltip for quests in the tracker, displaying their objective text
- added support for nUI (to keep it from hogging the watch frame) - thanks, Xrystal! (I did not add nUI to the OptionalDeps line in the .toc, figuring that since WFWW starts with a W, it would load close to the end. PLEASE let me know if I need to fix anything!)
- added option to remove the font shadow
- organized options a bit better

v.1.2
- added option to hide the watch frame when no quests or achievements are being tracked

v. 1.1.1
- fixed bug where your set height would not be reapplied when re-expanding the tracker

v. 1.1
- watch frame now remembers if it was collapsed before (saved per character)

v. 1.0
- initial release

Re: Posting new instead of making that one longer

Hmm... The tracker should never display a different number than the quest log actually has. (The first return to that function, by the way, is the number of quests *and* headers/zones in the log. The second is the number of quests that count toward your 25 limit.) I'm checking the value of GetNumQuestLogEntries() at the following events:
PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD (when you first log in, not subsequent times)
QUEST_ACCEPTED
QUEST_TURNED_IN
QUEST_REMOVED
QUEST_AUTOCOMPLETE

But I'll keep looking to see if I can catch anything wonky happening and when...

Posting new instead of making that one longer

New day. Three L100 toons logged in and chores done without any oddness in quests. Fourth toon.
Tracker says 9. Displays 10. VIew All says 13.
Dump: value=GetNumQuestLogEntries()
[1]=21,
[2]=13

Not sure what other info might be relevant. I haven't yet logged in any toons that aren't in Draenor. 3 of them are L100, 1 is L94. The one I'm reporting now is L100.

That's odd... The next time 2 or 3 happen, could you run this and tell me what it spits out, please?
Code:
/dump GetNumQuestLogEntries()
Does this happen as soon as you log in? Does it correct itself after you gain/lose/turn in a quest?
The toon mentioned above, with 25 quests, had abandoned 2, I think, and added 2. (Stables/mounts dailies). And then turned in 3. (i'm doing this without looking, so far, so as not to make anything change.) So, should have 22. HOWEVER: One of the ones I'd dropped was the immediate quest to talk to Wrynn nin my town hall. When I landed in my garrison it popped up again, and I hit escape to get it off my screen without accepting it. Right now, the objective tracker shows BOTH the brown 'Quest Discovered' button *AND* the ? Garrison Campaign: War Council line, as if I'd accepted the quest (that I have the drop Discovered button waiting for me to look at it and accept.)

Quests (5)
the dump command above reports:
Dump: value=GetNumQuestLogEntries()
[1]=36,
[2]=22

the [1] and the [2] are both in a medium blue color, but do not react when clicked or right-clicked. I don't have a middle button on this mouse.

When I bring up the map/quest listing, it says View All Quests 22/25.

I took a screenshot via the desktop (not ingame) of that section if you'd like me to post it somewhere for you to see.

ETA: dammit, I didn't pay attention. I took a quest in the Inn, but didn't notice the quest number, whether / when it changed. After I had gone into the town hall and set out missions, I noticed it was 23 on the top of the tracker. I clicked the dropdown that was sitting there, and accepted it. The number didn't change, nor did the display. (Unsurprising, since there was an entry as if I'd already accepted it.) I turned it in, and the number did not change to 22, stayed at 23. I accepted the follow-on (go to iron docks and talk to Naielle) and the number is still 23.

I'll edit this with more toon info as I relog.

Thank you!

I noticed that the feature I requested is included in this update! Thank you lots!

Unfortunately, on at least one toon, it's incorrect.

I've gotten no errors. I didn't check the accuracy on the first two alts I logged in.

1) Says 25 on header line. When open, displays 10. VIew All shows 25.
2) Says 5. Tracker displays 9. 'View All Quests' it has 13.
3) Says 2. It displays 2. View All Quests has 3.
4) Says 17. It displays 4. View All has 17.

I believe 1 and 4 are the correct behavior. I've no clue what the problem is. All of them have the new 'show quests' checked.

Feature suggestion: Number of quests visible at the top, open and closed

For various reasons I've been bumping up against the 25 quest limit on a my 'try everything on this first' toon. I often end up taking a pile of quests at once and then working on them as I get to them. I also untrack quests that I'm not actively working on. (dungeon dailies get untracked if I'm feeling like running around Nagrand today, for example). If I could see that I was about to hit the limit with the visible quest givers (for when there are a bunch in one place, for instance) I could be more selective.

I was thinking that having a ##/## visible on the very top line that's visible when the tracker is closed (mine usually has the word 'Objectives' there) and somewhere at the top more amenable to the look when it is opened, would make it so that the info is easily visible always.

If there's an option to do this, please point me at it because I haven't understood.

Thank you very much for the addon! I love it to pieces. Also, the suggestion for Quick Quest Item. Of the four you mention on the front page, that's the one that works best for me. (I'm much more a button pusher than a mouse clicker.) FWIW the one link that directly to GitHub never showed up in my addon list ingame. Not sure what I did wrong there, mentioning it in case anyone else had that problem.

Actually I just noticed that same behavior myself... looks like one of the functions for the scroll frame template you're using re-shows it periodically. I solved it by adding the following functions:

Code:
function Hide(obj)
	obj.Show = obj.Hide
	obj:Hide()
end

function Show(obj)
	obj.Show = nil
	obj:Show()
end
... declared as locals at the top, of course, and then calling them instead of OTFContainerScrollBar:Hide/Show(). Seems to work consistently, including on a /reload which is when I noticed the issue.

Hmm... I was having issues with :Show() and :Hide() for some strange, odd reason, but I'll try again.

Yes, please. The header textures look so out of place, especially the swirly bits.

That's something that was lost in the tracker changes. (I was previously just following the CVar for wide tracker or not.) At first glance, this looks like it's going to be a PITA.
