Gadgets on a Stick

Granted, this won't affect your riding speed, like carrot on a stick. But It'll make your characters life easier! Gadgets on a Stick is a very lightweight, highly modular, yet pretty customizable collection of small things anyone needs, combined in one addon.


Features
* config via config.lua
* auto repair and selling of grey crap
* buy a full stack of some vendor crap with ALT + click (to fill up reagents, fast ...)
* sets camera distance to max (if you zoom out...)
* allows you to change your screenshots quality (via config)
* filter error messages you can add exceptions via /error
* adds the following slash commands
- reload ui = /rl
- ready check = /rc
- Need to speak with a GM? = /ticket or /gm
- calendar = /cl or /calendar
* several Gadgets (think of modules...)



Gadgets
* minimap (middle mouse click on the map allows you to choose your tracking type, right click will open your calendar)
* zone text
* bags
* money
* fps
* latency and memory
* clock (including wintergrasp timer and calendar on click)
* durability
* compass
* gold
* tooltip
* viewport (including customizable texture overlay, colors, etc.)



General Gadget Notes
* gadgets (including minimap) are moveable, by holding down ALT
* gadgets can be enabled/disabled separately
* gadgets can either have a custom set border color or a class colored border
- it only loads what you choose to load, saves memory and displays only what you want to see
* you can choose to show/hide the border and backgrounds of gadgets
* gadgets can be set to show/hide on mouseover separately, except minimap (always visible)
* gadget positions are saved in your characters layout-local.txt
- you can either edit this file or delete it, to change/reset positions you don't want or messed up (you have to log out if you want to edit/delete the file)

note: Gadgets will not trigger mouseover fading, you have to mouseover the top edge of your screen.



FAQ

1. Where'z teh options?
Take a look into your World of Warcraft folder: Interface\Addons\dSidebar\config.lua. You can open this file with Wordpad, Notepad or any other text editor. I recommend Notepad++ - it's free, google it. The config is fairly well commented, just take your time to read through it.

note: If you change anything in config.lua, you have to reload your interface, either via /rl or a relog.



ToDo
* fix minimap sticking to the mouse while moving - for now, place the map, stop moving and type /rl
* fix tooltip error when you mouse over a player in a vehicle unit...

Config
The layout's setup code below can be found in "AddOns\GadgetsOnAStick\config.lua". You can edit and save your changes via Wordpad, Notepad or something similar. I recommend getting Notepad++ (it's a free editor, google it).

r4
* fixed tooltip lag on dead mobs

r3
* removed wintergrasp statusbar, time to wintergrasp is still available on mouseover!
* some tooltip tweaks
* fix Boss levels shown as "-1"
* added an option to disable tooltip fading (enabled by default)
* added an option to turn off auto repair and auto selling of grey junk

note:
* config settings are currently set to my settings (disabled viewport, ...)


r2
* added tooltip gadget - switch this off if you want to use another tooltip addon
planned tooltip features are:
- border color based on item quality, etc.
- maybe add power bar (possibly mana bar only) and power value
...

* fixed wintergrasp bartimer's frame strata
* cleaned up some code
* replaced some OnUpdate with OnEvent code - thanks to Vrul :)
* compass gadget is now deactivated by default
* removed an unused texture and the pixel fonts from the package...


r1
* initial release

Awesome mod though I would recommend adding 4 small features

#1 A logbook for the last 10 whispers
#2 A hover over guild listing like the one on Fubar
#3 a Hover over Friends listing also like the one on Fubar

Maybe in the future add broker support.

r4 should fix the tooltip lag, couldn't test it a lot, though. Tell me if it still happens on dead/dieing mobs.

At first i was not sure if my eyes are playing a game with me
And since this is a screeny from my Laptop i need to check it on my main rig and see it there then.


Thanks anyway

@Foppy
Are you using the latest version (r3)?

@kelvinhu
Works fine for me. It might depend on your system. The mouse anchor option is definitely consuming more cpu cycles, because it works around the fact that you can not directly anchor the tooltip to the cursor when you also want to be able to change the position relative to the cursor (offsets).

hi, first thx for your works, i use a lot of them in my ui and they look awesome, but i have a little issue with the tooltips, it seems that if i activate the tooltips (only them, the other "gadgets" works fine) and play a little bit killing mobs (questing, or instance) after a short time some bugs freeze the game for a sec or two, specially when i kill those mobs (it seems to happen only with mobs, doing battlegrounds or pvp i didn't have any issue)
do you have an idea of what can be the reason for that?

Do you mean "tracking"? Like "Track Humanoids, Undeads, whatever"? It's available on middle click. The icon will stay hidden, though.
