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.

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.

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.

I absolutely love this addon, it does everything I want without adding anything I don't want. Is there any chance it's still being worked on?

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.

Really glad to hear that!

One thing of note, it appears that SWF doesn't work with ElvUI. I assume this has something to do with the way ElvUI takes control of the watch frame, but knowing nothing about LUA, that's just a guess on my part.

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.

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.

Well I just took a look and the way ElvUI takes control is by re-parenting everytime SetPoint is used on the watchframe. The only way to stop this is by telling ElvUI not to do it.

Look in the folder: Interface\AddOns\ElvUI\modules\blizzard
Open the file: watchframe.lua

And look at the below segment of code and compare with what is in ElvUI. Commenting out the SetPoint at present looks to have resolved the control issue.

Lua Code:
  1. function B:MoveWatchFrame()
  2.     E:CreateMover(WatchFrameHolder, 'WatchFrameMover', L['Watch Frame'])
  3.     WatchFrameHolder:SetAllPoints(WatchFrameMover)
  4.  
  5.    
  6.     WatchFrame:ClearAllPoints()
  7.     WatchFrame:SetPoint('TOP', WatchFrameHolder, 'TOP')
  8.     WatchFrame:Height(E.screenheight / 2)
  9.     WatchFrame:SetClampedToScreen(false)
  10. --  hooksecurefunc(WatchFrame,"SetPoint",function(_,_,parent)
  11. --      if parent ~= WatchFrameHolder then
  12. --          WatchFrame:ClearAllPoints()
  13. --          WatchFrame:SetPoint('TOP', WatchFrameHolder, 'TOP')
  14. --      end
  15. --  end)   
  16. end

There's still a glitch with the quest item you click that I need to figure out still. Probably combat /secure frame related so will have to see if I can get it working without breaking the rest of the addon.

Still haven't fathomed the clickable item problem yet. I have it working in a full rewrite I have been working on but it is no way finished as of yet. So the last update uploaded just now is simply the TOC change to reflect compatibility.

Don't update yet .. typical that the last few weeks I don't see any problems with the watcframe and today I see tons. Not sure if its due to a change with the blizzard watchframe files or not.

Well having used this for a few days on multiple toons I haven't noticed anything untoward happening since that first usage so perhaps it was a first use glitch.

With the new expansion changing the questing process I am loathe to make any major changes to this if I end up having to rewrite later on or drop it totally due to the new changes. But, feel free to check it out and point out things missing as simple stuff I may add while we wait for the expansion to be close to coming out and I get access to the ptr.
