KeepingTabs
Version: 1.4.2
by: Seerah [More]
KeepingTabs gives you an easy way to keep tabs on all that is important to you. By adding tabs to the sides of certain frames, it is easier to keep tabs on your friends and guild as well as on your dungeons, raids and pvp. This allows you to use just one keybind for friends/guild and one keybind for dungeons/raid/pvp. It also makes it easier to switch between these (no longer separated) windows.


By default, the new tab for the guild frame opens to the first tab - news and events. If you prefer it to open to the second tab for the roster instead, you may open up KT_Social.lua in any text editor, find this at the very top
Code:
--Open directly to the Guild Roster tab 
--when switching to the guild frame
local roster = false
------------------------
and change it to true.


The guild tab should act like the guild perks tab in your spellbook and the top-left circle of the Guild UI, where the icon changes to your guild tabard.

This mod is brilliant and it absolutely astounds me that Blizzard neglected to add something like this in their UI revamps.

Suggestions

Since you are having the tabs on the side, might I suggest adding the other windows?

By this I mean something like this:

] Social
] Guild
] PvP
] Character
] Dungeon Finder
] Raid Browser

This add on would be a very fast way to switch between those windows if you could expand it to appear on each of those windows.

Since there hasn't been any word from the author of TabDB for like 10 months, and you seem to be pretty smart when it comes to coding up tabbed things...

http://www.wowinterface.com/download....html#comments


...yeah you guessed my request...


Any chance of you doing an updated working version for TabDB or coding a new addon that does the same thing?

Also still would love to have [character tab] and [pvp tab] on your Keeping Tabs addon =D

If you open the raid info pane, the new tab is above it which makes it a bit hard to read

In the KeepingTabs.lua file at line 64 add the code:
f.nst:SetFrameStrata("LOW")

and at line 70 add the code:
f.ngt:SetFrameStrata("LOW")

Save and reload. That should fix the Raid Info pane over lapping.

Guild Professions compatibility

Currently if I use your addon and Guild Prof Tabs addon:

http://www.wowinterface.com/download...18454#comments

The other addon removes your tabs from the guild window.

I was wondering if there was a way that your addon could do a couple of things.

One, detect if Guild Professions addon is installed, and if so, then position them below yours and resize to fit.

I have messed around with Guild Professions to get them smaller and sit below where your tabs should be, but some how this addon removes your tabs.

In Guild Professions addon I changed their button scale (button:SetScale(0.60)) and positioned it (button:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", GuildFrame, "TOPRIGHT", 0, -240))

All I need to be able to do now is tell it to turn your tabs back on then I can have the best of both worlds =D

Resizing the Guild Professions buttons will not solve the underlying issue.

I've posted on that addon what is the problem and why KeepingTabs can't draw its own buttons.
(or other addons that would like to attach frames to the GuildFrame).

I'm sure Maldivia will fix it soon, that way or an equivalent/better one.

I would also like to keep both addons functioning and I think
Guild Professions buttons can't be shrunk more or be relocated.
(there's just too many of them to move them to top or bottom)
I toyed around with various ideas for an hour and came up with this "proof of concept"

1. Adding savedvariables to KeepingTabs.toc
Code:
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: KeepingTabsPC
2. Adding a slash command /keepingtabs anchor and patch the main file thus:
http://www.pastey.net/142023

3. Result: User can do /keepingtabs anchor to toggle between
bottom-anchored tabs / side-anchored buttons.

Currently it will do a reload to apply because I didn't create separate buttons for each anchoring,
but it's possible to create more and swap between the 2 sets 'on the fly' (hiding one set and showing the other)

Understood.

Currently I have found another addon that adds a lot more tabs to the bottom from both Social and Friends windows called PutGuildBack.

Between PutGuildBack and the other Guild Professions tabs, I no longer really need KeepingTabs.

It is of course an awesome addon, but after switching I found myself no longer really using the two tabs from KeepingTabs.

The only others I added to complete my Guild/Social/Friends window was the Guild AFK/DND status icon and the Guild Roster Tooltip.

All these complete the mods I have running for the Guild/Social Window.
