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

Version: 2.0.2
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.)


2.0.1 Changes:
- 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)


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 (ex. collapse down)
  • quest tracker remembers collapsed state
  • adjust the scale of the quest tracker
  • adjust the font, font size, font flag (outline, etc.), or remove shadow
  • adjust the spacing between lines
  • 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.

- fixed the nil "header" error
- catching a few more fontstrings

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! Now when the next patch blows it up, it'll be my fault!

Actually, speaking of feature requests... It would be Really Cool to have the option of hiding the objectives for completed quests. I mention this because I run out of room sometimes if I'm tracking all my dailies.

The only other quest addons I'm using are SmoothQuest and QuestRouterLite. AFAIK, neither of them would remove a completed quest from the quest tracker. No problem - I'll get used to it. Spent too much time using QuestGuru/nquestlog and was able to keep completed quests visible in the quest tracker.

I may have misread whatever I am remembering, it might have been the achievements or quests and from whatever files they are linked to as I have looked at quite a few while working on my addon .. but in game wise, it's hard to know in my case as I don't play that much if at all. But I do know before this new WatchFrame completed quests did get removed from the tracker as it used to annoy the hell out of me and I'd have to keep going back into the quest log and set it to auto track again a few mins before doing my different hand ins.

If I spot the block of code or note that I am thinking of I'll let you know but looking at how the WatchFrame itself works it displays all tracked quests regardless of complete status. So, unless something somewhere tells it to stop tracking it, it shouldn't stop tracking it.

Well it looks like QuestGuru extends onto the default questlog at a quick look, whereas Seerah and myself extend onto the WatchFrame. But when I play around with my own addon on Monday I'll take a closer look and see how it works there. But it will still be up to Seerah to incorporate anything like that if it was possible I used to use QuestGuru myself when I was levelling.. but after 6 alts getting to 80 I don't really need to level any more rofl.

What Seerah was saying, I think, is that the WatchFrame itself isn't removing the completed quests so you must already be using an addon that is doing that.

However, I am sure I read somewhere that there is a short timespan until completed quests will be auto removed off the list but this part of the functionality may be beyond our control. I have looked at QuestFrame and WatchFrame lua files and do not see anything telling it to remove the quests. So you're guess is as good as ours how to stop it from happening.

Well, that wasn't the only reason why i wanted a external mod, i also wanted the watchframe to match the UI

I got curious, and after studying the blizzard quest frames for a bit, I've implemented line spacing controls.

The calls to WatchFrame_Update() are not in the FontChanges() routine because putting them there triggers an infinite recursion. It appears that a QUEST_OFFSET of 0 still leaves a little more space in front of quest headers than in front of other lines, but it's much more livable.

If the author wants this code, it's free for the taking. I explicitly release it into the public domain. (I'm not actually sure I could have any copyright in something so trivial, but I don't want anyone worrying about it.)

Tukz, nUI does a similar thing but what Spiel does is make the functions public so that addons can utilise them to turn off that functionality. Seerah has added that functionality to her addon and my addon uses it too. But where you have localised your functions that wouldn't be possible.

If you put that block of code into a set of functions and make them public writers of other addons can turn them off like you turned off blizzards functions.

Or like Seerah said, add an option to turn off control of the watch frame and not call your functions for it if they choose to not to. The latter would obviously be better as then its only one addon to change and not 2 or more.
