Broker: XPBar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0 r051
by: burny_dd [More]

Broker: XPBar - Sparkly XP Bars that can be attached anywhere.

Displays Infos about XP and watched Faction and adds bars for XP and/or reputation to your Broker bar addon. Select custom colors for bars or use predefined colors based on standing for the reputation bar.

You can attach the bars to (almost) any frame by click selecting the desired anchor frame with the mouse (similar to Xparky). You can attach the bars to any side of the frame on outside as well as on the inside. Adjust anchor position by setting X- and Y-Offset.

Update for Version 2 -

* New text system for Broker label and bars.
** Provides wide selection of predefined texts for display.
** Custom texts can be freely configured via script API.
* XP and reputation data for completed and incomplete quests.
** Shown in tooltip, in label texts and as bar sections.
** Notifications when completed quests allow to level up when handed in (or to reach the next standing with the watched faction).
* Bar length is now adjustable.
* Bar texts can now be shown side by side. That allows for bigger font sizes especially when XP and reputation bar are shown both.
* Fixed darkened color problem with default addon texture.
* Added option 'No Texture' to display bars just in opaque colors.

NOTE -

* Due to the new text system the old text options have been dumped. Reconfiguring texts for Broker label and bars is required.
* Larger memory footprint mainly due to use of library containing quest reputation reward data since Blizzard broke or scrapped API functions to retrieve that data from quests in log.

Features -

* Attaches bars for XP and/or reputation to (almost) any globally named frame.
* Configure layout of bars: Colors, dimensions, texture.
* Tooltip displays extended information about XP and reputation of currently watched faction.
* Provides data about XP and reputation for completed and incomplete quests in the quest log.
* Notifications when completed quests allow to level up when handed in (or to reach the next standing with the watched faction).
* Customizable texts for bar and Broker label.
* Select texts from predefined selection or define your own texts via script API.
* Provided information includes: Time to Level, Kills to Level, XP/Rep/Kills per Hour,
* Ace3 profile support for settings.

Usage Hints -

* Activating Broker: XPBar in your Broker display will show up the label text in that display only. To display the actual bars you will need to attach them to a frame on your screen first. To do this go to Options->Frame and click the button "Select by Mouse". Select the frame to attach the bars to by left-clicking on it and the bars should show up.

* The mouse cursor gets highlighted and shows the frame name as tooltip for each frame it hovers over. Left-click on desired frame to attach the bars to. Right-click will disable the selection cursor. Frame names may also be entered manually in the edit box. Use the option "Attach to" to select the side (Top or Bottom) of the frame where you want the bars. Fine adjust the position by using the Offset settings if needed.

* If you are trying to attach to a Broker display make sure you hit an empty spot on the display. If you click on another plugin on the display the bars will attach to the frame of this Broker plugin only.

* If you use Docking Station and want to attach to it's panels you need to make sure you have the Global option (Panels -> General) enabled for the panel you want to connect to.

* The "Jostle" option displaces the blizzard frames by the width of the bars. This should only be used with frames on the upper and lower edge of the screen and not with free floating frames!

* Consider that the Reputation bar is hidden if no faction is watched.

Very nice addon, I found one small bug though, caused by a typo.
in line 1114 of broker_XPbar.lua you typed "self.db.profile.Noneg" which of course should be "self.db.profile.None.g" Without the dot the norestedxp grey color isn't saved.

Great to see someone decided to port this and give it new life!!! It is one of those lil addons you dont realize how cool it was until its gone. I'm impressed to see you adding user requested features so fast and i think you're on the right track. Once an option to adjust the offsets are implemented i think it'll be damn near perfect :0] Keep up the great work!!!!!

Not Extending

For some reason with this and even Xsparky I can not get the mod to extend the length of my screen.

I use a 1920x1200 screen res with a windowed game res of 1920x1080

Here is what happens.



(Full screen shot)

Anyone know what is causing this?

Thanks

Like Xparky?

What he said!! Or something that works on other LDB displays. I use Docking Station, not Chocolate Bar.

Fine idea. I used to be a big fan of FuBar_FuXPFu and later its Ace3 non-bar-specific replacement, Xparky. But Xparky hasn't been updated for a year and has been quite buggy in the past; it appears to currently be in stasis. So nice to see this come along.

One big thing, though. With the method you are using--hooking to specific LDB displays--unless you have hooks into all (or nearly all) of them, the utility of this is reduced and/or unusable for people using displays you don't hook into. And it can be difficult to judge what displays to provide hooks for. There are the straightforward bar-type LDB displays. But there are also "block"-type displays that can be configured to look like a bar. And so on.

How about doing it the Xparky way: "XP/Rep bar that can be attached to any named frame available. As can be seen from the images, you can attach it to any side of any frame, and even set an offset so that the bars float off the frames."?That way its of more use to more people.
