UIScale  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.0
by: Phewx2 [More]
UIScale offers the possibility to set the size of the whole Interface independent of the Video Options.

How to:

- Open the UIScale.lua
- go to line 4
- change the value

- default is 0.6
- no limits! (a value between 0.000000000000001~ and 99999.0~)

- You can configure the addon while ingame. Change the scale and type /reloadui ingame and
the addon will be loaded with the new settings.
- You can use the command /script UIParent:SetScale(x.x) if you're looking for the right value for your settings.

Does this effect custom made user interfaces or just the default Blizzard user interface?

Misleading name but great concept. I second Orko's question.

sweet Im trying it out... This may be cool if it works on my custom UI cause a lot of people do not use the resolution I do.

This is yet another viewport mod, but with less convenient to use options than others (LUA modification, reloading), correct?

I don't really get what you mean.

With this addon you can set the UIScale independent of the video options.
no limits are set

Look at the screenshot...

--CT_Viewport(screenshot) (probably the most popular)
--Sunn - Viewport Art
--Viewporter
--DragViewPort
--PolkaPort
--Viewport

Looking through the minimal code of UIScale, though, this isn't really a viewport mod. All it is is a "mod" that sets the UIScale...in exactly the same way that the built-in Blizzard Video options panel does. And exactly the same way the following chat command does: /run UIParent:SetScale(value)

There is no difference. Except that the built-in one is a lot more convenient to use (don't have to reload your UI and it retains its settings through relogs). And for those who don't know, the code of this comes from this thread. The "author"/submitter here credited the proper author in the TOC. But would be nice to see the credit in the description too.

uhm...
There is a difference. In the video options are limits set (0.64-1).
This mod retains its setting through relogs too.
Just try the mod and don't talk shit like there is no difference between this and the video options.

And Ailae said to me that the code is free to use.

Again... look at the screenshot. My UIScale is at 0.5 and it remains through relogs etc. because of the settings of this addon.

With this addon you could set the scale to 0.

Just try the damn addon

To be honest, Blizzard stops us from setting the UI scale below 0.64 because it looks horrible below that point. I don't understand any more why anyone would want to use this. Still, it's a good concept and devilishly simple. My kind of coding. >.<

Its not because you can go lower then 0.64 that it actually applies it
if the api documentation says that values lower then that have no effect, then your little piece of code won't change that.
chances are that the 0.64 limit is hardcoded in the client and that any value lower then it will be ignored and set itself to 0.64 anyway
