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, better solution to keybind code changes! (NOTE: do a clean install or delete the old bindings.xml file)

- most features have been re-implemented
- please file a bug report at my portal if you find any issues

v.1.9

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

- changed "Thick Outline" to "Monochrome Outline"

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

- 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

Thanks for your quick respond. The problem must be with dMinimap then.
You don't happen to know how to turn the questtrackermoving from dMinimap of? I know it has to be done in the LUA coding and I tried a few things but they didnt work.
Thanks

Edit: Nevermind. Found it! And again: thanks

Sorry to bother you with this question but I cannot find the option to make it collapse up instead of the standard down.

Also I can't move the tracker when I activate all my addons. I know this should be because another addon is doing something to the tracker window but I don't have such addons.

In this picture the addons that are installed.

Thanks in advance

I added this feature already, though, for people who don't wish to make those changes to their settings or who use a background for their tracker. Though, I made it that it will minimize rather than hide.

You can control this with the built in options of the Blizz Quest Tracker. If memory serves me right, and it usually doesn't, right click the "Objectives" label and then in the drop down menu check proximity and uncheck remote zones...I think. That should make it so only quests related to the zone you're in appear in the QT and if you have no quests in that zone then no quests will show at all. So as long as you have no quests in that particular dungeon the QT should be blank.

What I was wondering is if the first quest can go to the bottom of the box I have configured, and the next tracked quest goes ontop of this, instead of underneath it ect ect, with the box still being the same size that I set it to when the quests were starting at the top.

Sorry if my first explanation didnt explain this very well, and if you did understand it and I have just misunderstod your explanation, then again I apologise.

if this is not the case, is there anyway you can add an option to reverse grow direction?

No, my guess is that you have something else interfering with it (ie, trying to move/control the WatchFrame) in addition to WFWW. And changing the anchor changes the direction that the watch frame collapses to (one of the reasons why I recommended the addon to you ).

/edit: your first screenshot is also off - the Objectives text and collapse button shouldn't be so far down from the top of the background.
