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.

Coming Features

Planned Features currently being worked on but were taking to long to be put in here will be added as follows :

1.01.01 - Implemented, details further in this thread.
1.02.00 -Implemented, details further in this thread.
1.03.00 - Implemented, details further in this thread.
1.03.01 - Implemented, details further in this thread.
1.03.02 - Implemented, details further in this thread.
1.04.00 - Hopefully this version will have font changes ( Header and Body Text Size/Font/Color ) and choice of BackGround color/border/alpha etc. Details will appear in a more up to date post with current status.


That said, any other ideas you may wish you had please let me know. And if one of your questions are, ' Why haven't we got this for .... plugin ? ' in relation to several of my other addons that are infopanel plugins. The answer is, because I didn't know I could until now. This is the first and any of the ones I can change to work like this I will be doing once I have got the planned changes implemented here.

Version 1.01.01 Changes

These changes will also be in the ChangeLog but here they are as well for your perusal.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
[Version 1.01.01]
-------------------------------------------------------------------

ScrollFrame.lua
-->Resize both Scroll and Child Frames to suit new width of Container
SWF_Main.lua
-->Added Hook into WatchFrame_Update
-->Added Auto Hide option so when WatchFrame wants to hide, so does ours
-->Resize Child Frame to reflect quest item icons

WatchFrame.lua
-->Added AutoHide and AutoWiden options
-->Update the WatchFrame to reflect the changes made
-->Override WatchFrame Constants to 50 barring Achievements which don't work anyway
-->Override WatchFrame MaxLineWidth Constant to match width of frame

SWF_SlashCommands.lua
-->Update the WatchFrame when these changes are made as well
nUI_InfoPanel.lua
-->Forgot to size the frame when the infopanel was resized
Known Rectifiable Problems
-->If you adjust the scrollsize with swf scroll to a smaller number after watching more quests to fill the larger scroll frame it just won't display the quests but they are still counted as watchable. Suggestion : make sure you have ample scroll space before watching a quest, expand scroll space when you run out.

It should still work with achievements but where I can expand quest count to above 10 I can't expand achievement count. There is some other internal check somewhere that stops it from allowing you to add more than 10 achievements. However, you should be able to see all the required achievement portions instead of ... unless of course there were more than 50 of them

In WatchFrame.lua in the ScrollingWatchFrame addon folder that is You should see near the top the following 2 lines.

WATCHFRAME_MAXQUESTS = 50;
WATCHFRAME_CRITERIA_PER_ACHIEVEMENT = 50;

This means that you will now be able to watch up to 50 quests and have up to 50 criteria per achievement on display ( instead of ... ). This is assuming you have a large enough scroll size. If you seem to be running out of scroll room increase the scroll size. I believe I have the default is 1000 which should let you watch quite a few. If you need that raised up to 3000 max at present just use the slash command /swf scroll x where x is the height of the scrolling frame inside the main frame

You know when you have plenty of scroll space left when you end up scrolling empty space

Request

any chance you could add in the ability to lose that scroll bar on the side? I mean doing /swf background helps, but scroll bar is kinda in the way of things, I want your quest thing, but not having the scroll bar on screen would be better


also making the objective window going behind other windows like npc vendor and your bags if you open them up would be nice 2, where ever I put it if I have it fully out, and open my bag the objective window is still over the bags making me have to move it just to move my stuff in my bag or closing it

Thanks for those insights Nightmare. I also posted in the other post we were talking in but here goes.

The scroll bar on the side is needed to allow the scrolling to work. I can't remember if I added tests to remove the scroll bar if it isn't needed so will look into that. Also, if hiding the scroll bar doesn't stop the scrolling to work I will add the option to hide the scroll bar if users wish it.

I'll also look into changing the frame hierarchy so that it is more in the background. I have never really used anything other than dialog hierarchy before so it may take me awhile to work out the different layers and pick the right one.

kk thanks, if the scroll bars has to be there that fine the big problem is it staying over ever window instead of going behind when i open one that would open over that spot.

With Nightmares help the following can be changed to make the hierarchy work the same way as the original blizzard frame hierarchy. For those that need the change now here is what you need to do:

File : ScrollFrame.lua
Line : 228

Change that line so that it shows this
c:SetFrameStrata("LOW");
instead of
c:SetFrameStrata("HIGH");

I will add the change when I implement the options UI.

Edit ( 9th Mar 10) : Whilst working on the interface for the slash commands I found out that this strata is not good for the InfoPanel users so only non InfoPanel users should use that. Not that InfoPanel users would need to but oh well. I will incorporate a more generic change to reflect both users in version 1.02.00.

Now that I have finally got onto the test server I immediately tested to see if the minimal changes they introduced killed this addon. yep, it pretty much did. If you have nUI and were using it in the infopanel then you're only missing a bit of the new functionality so will be able to get by if I don't manage to resolve the problem before it goes live.

http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...839#post179839 is where I have been posting screenshots so take a look there.

Well, whilst working on the Options Interface I have now found that the MaxQuests display option cannot be overridden once the watchframe has been displayed. So we are set to these limitations until something is found that allows us to use them:

MaxAchievements - Cannot be overridden at all as it still validates against 10 achievements regardless of value. Could be a bug so who knows.
MaxQuests - Can be overridden within an addon before the WatchFrame is created. But cannot be programmatically adjusted once it has been applied to a WatchFrame.
MaxCriteria - This seems to work at run time but without the other 2 it kind of defeats the object. So I will leave it as a tweakable value in the WatchFrame.lua file along with the MaxQuests one.

The rest seem to be working well so far but primary testing today was for those items so will test the others later. I have, however, started incorporating an Accept and Cancel button option so that it restores the last stored values ( on Options Interface Frame Shown ) before closing the window.

As I grow to near completion of this addition to the addon I will incorporate the code to make the addon work within 3.3.3 setup for those that are testing the test server changes or by the time they hit live.

Okay, almost finished the slash command interface. After some tweaking back and forth I ended up doing the following:

The Accept/Cancel option had to go out the window as it affects the toggle to the infopanel.

The MaxQuestWatchCount and MaxCriteriaPerAchievementCount ( or however they are called rofl ) are left as hard coded values. This is due to the Max Quest Watch value ignoring in game changes and the fact that 50 criteria per achievement should suit most if not all users. If, however, you do wish for these two values to be changed, you can change the watchframe.lua file ( in this addon ). The two lines in question are near the top of the file.

The AutoWiden Option I realised I had never actually used as a flag and seeing as this visual shows you if the frame is too narrow or not as you size it with it kept switched on ( as default ) then I will leave it that way.

What we do have though are 3 slider bars to handle the width/height and scroll height values. And 4 check boxes to toggle the multiple anchor system, locking the frame in place, auto hiding the frame if nothing is being tracked and showing the background. Only the scroll height and background toggle will work with the infopanel system just like with the slash commands.

Hopefully over the next few days I will finalise this version and post it up and then start work on the changes needed to work with 3.3.3.
