Error Handler
Version: 1.4
by: morkesh [More]
Error Handler

Error handler was designed to give you more control over which errors to show, by default it hides all errors but for each individual error you can choose wheter to show it either in the default position in the middle of the screen or to have Parrot, MSBT or SCT announce it, also supports blizzard standard combattext, default chatframe, raidwarning frame & bossemote frame

Upcomming Features:
-Possible option to add your own errors, let me know in comments if this is something you want
-Add more errors, if there's any you'd like to see in future releases, let me know in comments!
-Suggest more!

if you find any bugs, let me know in the comments and i'll get on it as soon as possible!

Enjoy
1.1
-Added the profession error "Requires <profession> <skill>"
-Fixed a spelling error
-Added the no rage error for warriors

1.2
-Fixed a rather serious/annoying bug in the function that was supposed to update the database when installing a new version
-Rewrote the options to look better ( still missing the color picker though :( )
-Added Out of mana, no runic power and several other messages

1.3
-Finally added the option to change colors
-Added new options for redirection, now includes blizzard default combat text, raidwarning frame, bossemote frame, chatframe, MSBT, SCT & Parrot
-General code cleaning, still a looong way to go though :(

1.4
-Scrapped the category idea, it didn't work out in practice after all
-Sorted error alphabetically instead
-Changed "None" to "Default" in redirection, and made default be the standard UIErrorsFrame
-Added 15 new errors, enjoy!
-Changed to .zip instead of .rar due to MMOUI minion

I posted in "optional addon"
an inverted version of ErrorHandler : instead of choosing which errors you show, you choose which errorr you hide
I found it useful when I don't know ahead of of time what will bother me and what will be useful

Hello
I like this addon and it seems it can work again if you change in the options.lua file
ligne 245 change function(_, event, ...) to function(_, event, e)
ligne 246 change arg1 == to e ==

there you go !

That is actually not a bad idea at all only issue i see at the moment is that it's out of scope for this addon i'm affraid, but may make another one for that, or in time make an addon for error handler to enable it. To be honest it wont be top priority for the time being though

Any way possible to have a graphical representation of common errors instead of text?

I mean like how an addon like PowerAuras can be used for graphic visualization of various things (like power states, procs, debuffs, etc) I think the major thing missing right now in WoW is an error handler that can use graphics for common errors like (out of range, not enough energy, etc).

So instead of text spamming your screen, instead you have an "out of range" icon/graphic that just glows (or pulses) until the error is gone or you stop pressing the button causing it.

Thank you for adding the MSBT functionality.

Throttling: To keep it from throwing out the same message too many times in a certain period of time.

ex. Instead of seeing:

You don't have enough energy.
You don't have enough energy.
You don't have enough energy.
You don't have enough energy.

within 5 seconds, maybe have a feature where you can set it to show the same error only once every 10 seconds. So it will just be:

You don't have enough energy.

While i consider my english above average (when i'm awake atleast :P) throttling will need some explanation...i assume you mean delay in some manner? regardless, explain further and i'll look into it

Have you thought about a throttling feature? Keep up the great work!

if you open redirect.lua you'll find a string going

Code:
Parrot:ShowMessage(text, "Notification", true, rR, gG, bB)
I'm pretty sure (haven't looked much into parrot) that you can change the Notification to where you'd like it to show, from the parrot file Display.lua:

Code:
Arguments:
	string - the text you wish to show.
	[optional] string - the scroll area to show in. Default: "Notification"
	[optional] boolean - whether to show in the sticky-style, e.g. crits. Default: false
	[optional] number - [0, 1] the red part of the color. Default: 1
	[optional] number - [0, 1] the green part of the color. Default: 1
	[optional] number - [0, 1] the blue part of the color. Default: 1
	[optional] string - the font to use (as determined by SharedMedia-1.0). Defaults to the scroll area's setting.
	[optional] number - the font size to use. Defaults to the scroll area's setting.
	[optional] string - the font outline to use. Defaults to the scroll area's setting.
	[optional] string - the icon texture to show alongside the message.
Notes:
	* See :GetScrollAreasValidate() for a validation list of scroll areas.
	* Messages are suppressed if the user has set a specific suppression matching the text.
Example:
	Parrot:ShowMessage("Hello, world!", "Notification", false, 0.5, 0.5, 1)
so that's a hack that'll work, seeing how i don't use parrot myself i feel it's out of the scope of this addon to make it favour parrot by enabling you to pick specific things for it in the options, atleast for now

in regards to the alphabetic sorting, i've definitely been considering it! and in a few days i'll probably release an update with several new errors since i know i'm currently missing alot.

Parrot seems to be workign just fine, however, would it be possible to tell it where to do in Parrot (even a hack would be nice) and spam throttling please!!!!!! At least for Parrot.

Also: "inventory is full" and I'm not really sure what the exact wording is (can get it tomorrow probably) but when you're master looting and you go to send an item to the person who won it and their inventory is full you get a message like "that player's inventory is full." I also would like to see the "trade failed because..." messages.

Also 2: Put the list in alphabetical order? Then you wouldn't need to do the categories like you have, or you could still do that and alphabetize them in there. That main section is rather large lol.

Yeah that struck me 5 minutes after uploading the newest version :P will try to implement it for the next release but for now i'll wait for a few more suggestions and/or error messages to add before releasing a new one

Glad you like it so far, only tested the MBST redirect myself so wheter or not the parrot & SCT options work, time will tell! :P
