stExperienceBar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2
by: Safturento [More]
NOTICE: If your updating to 3.0 from a previous version, make sure to delete your current version from your AddOns' folder first.

This is just a simple experience bar addon I wrote, all of the configuration is done through the Config.lua file. There you can change the font, texture, anchor, and size of the bar.

When your not level 80 and your tracking a reputation, it will show the reputation info on the tooltip, and will push the xp bar up 2 pixels to show a reputation bar.

When you right click on the bar, it will open a menu to report reputation/experience information into chat.

That's it, hope you enjoy the addon!

I absolutely love this addon but I can't get it to show up on my level 80 warlock. It shows up on every single one of my toons (even other 80s, I haven't leveled any past 80 yet) but no matter what I do, it won't show up on my lock.

just going into .lua and changing the font to one of my own (and adding it to the media folder obviously), makes it so I can't see anything on the xpbar at all. Haven't figured out yet why but is there anything particular about this font you're using? Special characters wise or something? Size?
Hmm, I just tested this using ARIALN.ttf and it changed the font without issues. Here's what my new font line looks like:
Code:
local font,fontsize,flags = [[Fonts\ARIALN.ttf]], 10, "MONOCHROMEOUTLINE"

Thanks
The lines you'll need to edit for the border are here:
Code:
backdrop:SetBackdrop({
	bgFile = barTex, 
	edgeFile = barTex, 
	tile = false, tileSize = 0, edgeSize = 1, 
	insets = { left = -1, right = -1, top = -1, bottom = -1}
})
backdrop:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0)
backdrop:SetBackdropBorderColor(.2, .2, .2, 1)

I'm experiencing the same issue myself. Been trying different sizes for my font and removed the monochrome type but it refuses to show. Can't seem to figure it out.

Also noticing that I'm level 84 on my warrior and it is only showing reputation.

Saft, is there anyway you can convert this to a zip instead of rar so that MMOUI Minion (the WowInterface UI Updater) doesn't fail with an Internal Error when it tries to install it?

I'm sure a lot of us would totally appreciate it! Also, great addon!!!!

It seems like you forgot to change the code when showing the poster a few posts down, on how to show XP text on mouse over.

Apologies if I'm wrong.
haha oops, v2.2 fixes that. I added it in as an option in the config for those who want it still.

Just thought I'd point that out.
v_v note to self: Don't code until 5 am..I'll have a new version up in a sec that fixes that and also fixes an issue with the rested exp bar.

Thanks for uploading the addon.
Look for this line:
Code:
xpBar:SetStatusBarColor(.5, 0, .75)
and replace it with this code:
Code:
local _, class = UnitClass("player")
local color = RAID_CLASS_COLORS[class]
local r,g,b = color.r, color.g, color.b
xpBar:SetStatusBarColor(r,g,b)

Look for the line that begins with "Text:SetPoint(" and add this under it:
Code:
Text:SetAlpha(0)
Then find this line:
Code:
mouseFrame:SetScript("OnEnter", function()
and add this directly under it:
Code:
Text:SetAlpha(1)
Then find this line:
Code:
mouseFrame:SetScript("OnLeave", function() GameTooltip:Hide() end)
and replace it with this:
Code:
mouseFrame:SetScript("OnLeave", function() GameTooltip:Hide() Text:SetAlpha(0) end)
