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.

- cleaner access of PVP frame

v.1.1

v. 0.3
- only create tabs once!

v. 0.2
- code updates/organization

Change for P4.3

Hello there. i think ur addon is simple easy and better then the normal tab addons that just add more tabs to the bottom of the frames.
yet with P4.3 on the friends list as it has been modified by blizzard ur addon on the social frames is hidden under the frame. so i tried changing the code and in putting

"f.nst:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", FriendsFrame, "TOPRIGHT", 2, -45)"

at the place of

"f.nst:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", FriendsFrame, "TOPRIGHT", -33, -57)"

has unhidden the social tabs and makes the addon work again in P4.3 and is great as i did not wish to find another addon that does the same thing as your addon does as i do not see the point to it.
If you already know about this fix then nps. just telling you know they are peeps out there that use this and would like it to be updated to work with p4.3 officially

Cheers for this problem solving addon

Thanks for that Wagg1, I was just coming to see if there was an update as Keeping Tabs is such a handy little addition to the ui.

Seerah, thanks for the mod, it's one I see and use every day so sometimes forget it's not default

Thanks, wagg1 for finding exactly what to change before I could look at it.

Blizz must have changed the friends frame or something so that it's now the same as the guild frame. I have no clue why they required different x,y offsets before, but now they're the same.

The reason is the panel templates Blizz added in Cata, found in FrameXML/UIPanelTemplates.xml near the end of the file. The guild frame uses these templates, while the social frame used a static texture until 4.3.

The offset is different due to the static texture being wider than the visible graphic, requiring the tabs to be inset. The templates on the other hand use h+v tiling to create a frame whose functional size is the same as its visible size.

A few frames that use these templates are the LFG/LFR, TradeSkill, Talents, PvP Frame, Character Frame, Spell Book and more that I'm to tired to look up/remember.

Thanks for the explanation!

Pvp tab with the pve tabs?

Hello there. nice update you have with the loot finder and grp finder tabs. but this update did not like my other tab addon Tabbed Dungeon Browser.
so for now i will be removing the pve tabs.
But if you could add a battleground tab to the raid finder and the dungeon finder then this then would be the perfect addon as and i would remove TDB cos then i have 1 addon that does both tasks

link to tdb just incase of something

Thanks for this awesome addon!!

Took me awhile but I finally figured out which addon is doing this hehe. Ive turned off all addons accept this one.

Every time I log in I see:
ndt finished
ndt2 finished
ndt3 finished

How can I stop this from printing in the chatbox every time I log in or reload?

Cheers for the update with the pvp tab. This is one of them add-ons that i believe i would not be able to play wow with out as i don't use the mini options bar
Now i can also remove the other addon i was using for the pvp tab as now this addon is 100% perfect (atm. as i have not seen a bug with it )

one thing. i did not like the new icons for the lfg lfr and pvp tab. but i liked it that u still had the icons in the files with the "--"
But for any others that wants a pvp icon that i think fits with the older icons i use this one.
nptX:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\BattlefieldFrame\\UI-Battlefield-Icon")
Just change the X with the parts of the code. so it would be 2 3 and for number 1 just remove the X

Hey there, any update for 5.2?
as they mod'ed the PVP frames u can no longer tab to or from them with the dungeon finder window.

i did do some digging but all i could see was they renamed the pvp window to PVPUIFrame but when trying this it still did not work thinks me did something wrong but all i did was change PVPFrame in the addon files to PVPUIFrame as it said in wow when i did /stackframe

Anywho, hope for an update or for me to work out what i did wrong

Thanks for that report, I hadn't noticed it since I wasn't getting any errors last night.
