XObjectivesFrame

Version: 6.0.3.19243
by: Xrystal [More]


About the XObjectivesFrame Addon
This addon allows the user to set their watch frame into a more convenient size and position with nUI users gaining extra functionality to 'dock' the frame in an infopanel. It has been rewritten to work with the latest version of the game and replaces ScrollingWatchFrame addon.

Alternatives
Seerah's WatchFrame Addon has many similar and more features so if this isn't quite what you want or you want to weigh your choices go check it out : WhoFramedWatcherWabbit.

Note: If you need a higher number for those with ranges let me know and I will try to raise the bar.

Customizations Available
XObjectivesDB can hold the following values (by default):
Width = 300 ( up to 600 in increments of 25) - Not available when docked
Height = 150 ( up to 800 in increments of 50) - Not available when docked
Collapsed = false - Not available when docked
Docked = false - Available if you have a dock compatible UI setup like nUI
MaxObjectives = 25 (up to 100 in increments of 5)
ScrollHeight = 1000 (up to 3000 in increments of 100)

Note: The Maximum Achievement count still cannot be overridden due to how they are using that constant but the various other numeric constants can be.

Known Problems:
The quest item button seems to get tainted with only the slightest change to the ObjectivesFrame so for now you will have to use the item in an action bar slot or from the bag or use another addon such as:
QuickQuestItem
And QuestItemBar on curse website, as the one on here hasn't been updated since before the expansion.


Foreign Language Versions
At the present this plugin does not support multi language settings.
enUS and enGB versions will work fine however and the ability to add new languages is possible using the addonData.Localization values accordingly.

Version: 6.0.3.19243
- Rewrite of ScrollingWatchFrame addon to be compatible with the latest version of the game.
- Features:
- Drop Down Menu to adjust the following options:
- Width, Height, ScrollHeight, MaxObjectives, Docked Status, Collapsed Status
- Known Problems:
- Using the quest item will popup an error message.

Gotta say, Xrystal, while there are a lot of things I'm excited about in 5.4, this addon is what I'm most excited about. My OCD absolutely hates looking at my watch frame just hanging out with no background or frame around it. I know that there are other options out there, but SWF really is perfect.

Very cool, and thank you again.

Sounds possible. When I check its state with the new patch I'll look into how I can ask ElvUI to stop taking control while my addon is loaded, I do something similar with nUI.

Wow I apologise for not replying at least the next day after you posted this. I must have forgotten to check the addon message list the last few days and totally missed your post. As I said in my reply to your message, I use the addon myself and apart from a little glitch I am trying to tie down it looks to be working fine so far. I will make sure I post up the version I have once the new patch comes out, even if the little glitch is there, as it is resolvable with a simple reload of the UI when out of combat.

Well looks like I've identified what to do to stop the auto pop up quests from popping the watch frame outside of the infopanel frame.

Other problem which is annoying is working out a way to get the quest item icons to not intersperse too near the quest text as it seems to cause problems. Or of course it could be a layering issue.

Its been glitching out when the pop up quests occur which happen alot so I am guessing it still needs work on.

Barring making mental notes on what happens when and taking screenshots on things like scenarios etc which also do stuff with the watch frame I haven't had the time to spend too much on it what with work and levelling rofl.

But I have 4 days off at the end of the month so should be able to spend some time on it then. Thinking maybe making the pop up and scenario sections separate from the watchframe as they're not really something you watch but more info on what you need to do or to accept/complete to make it do the next stage.

I haven't changed the TOC verson to 50001 yet so it would be just the case of turning on load outdated addons to get it to load up.

I'm testing out its successor at the moment and ironing out some wrinkles before I put it up for use but as far as I am aware it should work well enough on its own. If you do get any errors though please do let me know and I will work on it again to get it working.

I also still haven't worked out a way to get the items consistently clickable. Some sort of frame overlaying problem by the looks of it. The successor has the same problem.

I don't recall this problem happening prior to 4.3 but now it seems that when the scrollable watchframe is docked into the nUI infopanel with /swf dock it causes a problem clicking on the objects for quests. undocking resolves the problem until I have worked out the change required to get it back to its intended use.

I am not sure if this has been happening to everyone out there yet but I have noticed with the latest version of titan and in particular it's location plugin it seems to mess up the Watchframe loading order and thus causing an error to occur in this addon.

Whether this is a nUI only problem or not I don't know but if you are getting this problem try disabling the location plugin for titan panel and see if that resolves it for you in the mean time.

nUI users shouldn't have a problem doing this seeing as nUI puts the location information under the minimap. However, non nUI users may need this important information so when I do my next update to the addon I will see if I can work in a fix to get Titan Location and Scrolling Watch Frame talking to each other.

Edit: Actually, the problem seems to only happen when you first log in and I assume it is due to a loading order problem. Reloading the UI or logging to the character selection screen seems to make it work that second time round. Outside of that turning off titan as a whole stops it from breaking on first log in. Hopefully these solutions will resolve your problems if you are getting them.

I just wanted to point out to people that I have personally spotted a few glitches that I haven't narrowed down as to the cause yet. Usually a reload of the UI and/or docking/undocking the frame will get it to work properly in nUI.

Also, I have noticed while questing since cata hit, is that the auto complete quests automatically appear in the watch frame at the top. If you have scrolled down the frame when it appears you are none the wiser as I found out having had to do a dungeon several times to get all of them completed rofl. I'll try to resolve this as soon as possible but thought I would let you know in case you were hitting that problem.

On investigation today I realised that my 1.04.00 version was not based on the code used in 1.03.02 previously uploaded.

I haven't posted anywhere a reason for doing this so I suspect it was some sort of oversight due to the extra changes I was trying to fit into it before the patch hit us that I had since decided to drop in favor of functionality rather than feature

So, please, if anyone is spotting bugs that were supposed to have been fixed in 1.03.01 and 1.03.02 can you please let me know. In the mean time I will see if I had just forgotten to make a note in the patch notes file which is unusual as that is where I get the update notes for the site from rofl.

So far though the addon seems to be working fine with 4.03 patch with auto complete quests displaying as such in the quest watch frame as a comment to 'Click this to complete quest'.
