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.

An Update...

Just an update on the current status ...

For those that read my 1.04.00 notes and realised I had noticed a flaw in my design and had decided to re-write the core code for the addon to enable more flexibility in the frames.

Well, at the current time it looks like I may have finally found the best set up for this. I had almost made it several times in the last week or two but then something would go wrong somewhere with no apparent reason.

So far it looks to be working as planned. Although not all current functionality is present such as the runtime option changes ( these are currently hardcoded at startup ). Whilst incorporating the new options screen I will add the new font changes mentioned earlier and hopefully the backdrop change system. The latter I am not definite on though.

The font and level changes on the watch frame will hardly need to be altered with the main changes being in the option screen itself. Until the next installment .. have fun.

Well, looks like I still need to iron out some bugs for the non docked frame but here are some screenshots on its current state so far:






And yes the old faithful black backdrop is still possible

I apologise for the delay in getting these changes out to you but with the new 3.3.5 patch changes my chat frame addons took priority of my time available outside of real life and raiding with the guild.

However, I have been continually testing this addon and have not noticed anything terrible happening so once I have added in the UI to make the required changes I will upload it.

Pre Expansion Patch ...

And yes, the current official incarnation of this addon seems to be working fine with the PTR version.

Improvements I have been planning and working on in the past I think grew too quickly and started causing more problems than solving them so I will hold back on changes for the mean time and will review what people have asked for and try to add them in smaller chunks as well as my own wants

Patch 4.0.1 Compatibility Patch

I spoke too soon with that last comment of mine. The other day on the PTR I noticed it bugged out on me but wasn't sure why.

Now, it seems, that it was due to the defunct code being fully removed from the API which broke many addons. An easy fix though once you know what it is

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'.

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.

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 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 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.
