RealID Toons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.18
by: Starinnia [More]
Adds the current character name of your Real ID friends to the Battle.net alert informing you they have come online. Information is added to both the inline chat notification and the popup Toast window.

Alerts are populated with information based on the format string replacements you choose.
The following replacements are available:
  • $t - Character Name, uncolored
  • $T - Class Colored Character Name
  • $c - Class name
  • $C - Class Colored class name
  • $s - Realm (server) Name (only if different than the player's)
  • $S - Realm (server) Name (Always)
  • $f - Faction symbol (only if different from player, or on another server)
  • $F - Faction symbol (Always)
  • $l - Character level
  • $L - Character level (difficulty colored)
  • $r - Character race
  • $n - Friend note (only shown in Chat alerts)
  • $N - Friend note (always shown)

These options are available in the Interface Options, or by typing /ridt


FAQs
Q: My friend's character name is colored gray, what happened?
A: Some times the server is overloaded and will not return all the information about your friends, since the addon does not know what class your friend is playing the name is colored gray.

Q: My friend's character name is colored like they are on their previous toon, what happened?
A: Similar to the above question. Sometimes the wrong information is returned during periods of high load. I haven't been able to force this to happen, although I have seen it happen. I am working on trying to solve the issue efficiently.

Q: Your addon threw an error!
A: Please post a ticket on WoWAce, but first check to see if your problem has already been reported and that you are using the current version. Remember, being as detailed as possible in your report will help me fix it faster.

Just got this yesterday when I saw it as a new addon. Works great and is nice and simple. Definitely one that is on the "must have" list now. Great Job

Ditto on that. Well done coding this up so quickly. How is it useful to know that John Jenkins came online without knowing what game, what server and what character?

As soon as I'm sure that the problem is fixed a new release will be made here.

I'm missing a feature in the default UI and hoping this something maybe something that could be added to this.

- You can't invite a Real ID friend to a group. Ofc it's impossible when they are on another realm, but when they are on a char on your realm and your faction, you still have to invite them by their characters name, and rightclicking won't work.

So, ideally, maybe an option could be added to the right click, on which you are able to select invite, using the characters name to send the invite.
Preferrably it'll check to see that they are on the same realm as I am before inviting, but that would be an extra boon.

That would be out of the scope of the addon really. Also, I have no issues inviting my RealID friends to groups by right clicking on their real names, either from BNet whispers or the login alerts.

Any chance you could add additional "detail" options for say character level / realm name / location ?

There is already an option for realm name, but it is only added when your friend is on a different server than you.

I will think about the other two, however I'm not sure how much optional information I want to make available.

No worries, turns out it was a first night bug on my realm, but fixed now.

Not from my addon, I don't have any print statements in the active code. Also, I don't do anything with the BN_NEW_PRESENCE event.

Edit: If you use something that adds or removes your RealID friend's toons to your friends list that could be the culprit.

Modifying the Friends Frame would be out of scope for this addon. If I have time I might write something separate.
