MarkingBar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v2.1.1
by: silentstone7 [More]
MarkingBar is an addon to help players use raid markers in parties and raids. It is designed to be simple and easy to use, while offering a wide variety of options without taking up a lot of memory. This addon is based on the once-popular but now-discontinued Hatty's Mark Bar, with features added from many other popular marking addons.

Features:

* Quickly mark and unmark the current target by clicking the symbol you want to assign or remove.
* Perform a party or raid ReadyCheck.
* Announce your current marking system to party or raid chat. These messages can be customized through the gear icon or /mb options.
* While in a party or raid, place the raid flare/world markers. Note: This cannot be done in combat, and the flares frame may not function correctly when you enter combat.
* Each frame can be moved anywhere on screen and locked in place.
* Frames can have the icon order reversed or be stacked vertically.
* Frames can have the border and background completely hidden.
* Tooltips can be turned on and off.
* Tooltips can be turned on or off for announcement messages.
* Show the frames all the time, or only while you have a target.
* Show the frames while alone, in a party, or in a raid group.

Upcoming Features:

I'm currently working on:
* Adding keyboard shortcuts
* Announcements for the world markers
* Minimap Icon
* Localization into other languages if requested
* LDB support

If you have any suggestions/questions/comments, comment here or send me a PM.
Version 2.1.1
*Fixed an issue that was causing the "Clear All Icons" feature to crash when clicked repeatedly. Clicking this icon repeatedly is probably still not a great idea, but will no longer cause any game-crashing world-breaking issues. =)

Version 2.1.0
*Fixed numerous bugs and conflicts.
*Options frame now properly hidden during cinematics and while pressing Alt+Z
*Clicking the options gear icon will take you to the MarkingBar Options. Right-clicking the icon will take you directly to the announce options.
*A button to clear all raid icons has been added.

Version 2.0.4
*Options interface has been updated to include options for the control frame
*Fixed announcements conflicting with other chat addons, like Prat
*Fixed a bunch of bugs where options weren't sticking

Version 2.0.3
* Fixed taint issues hopefully once and for all. Users will no longer see "Interface action blocked because of an Addon" anymore.
* The options interface has been integrated into the default Blizzard UI. You can still access the options from /mb or from the gear icon, but you can now also access the options by pressing Esc to bring up the Game Menu>Interface>Addons>MarkingBar.
* More room to edit announcement text
* New announcement line to add at the end of the marks
* New announcement option to add a raid warning message when announcing in a raid
* New option to add announcement messages to the icon's tooltips. This is especially useful if you can never remember what text you set up and what those pesky icons mean. =)
* Added option to separate the announcement frame from the raid icons frame
* The announcement options are now always visible
* The lock icon for the main Raid Icons has moved from the announcement frame to the raid icons frame
* World Marker flares are now always hidden in combat, since the ability to set them is protected by Blizzard and you can't set them while in combat anyway.

Version 2.0.2

* Corrected errors in the chat announcement not displaying icons correctly for non-English versions of WoW
* Added more show/hide options for solo, party, and raid
* Corrected taint issue that was affecting some people
* Updated version number

Version 2.0.1
* Corrected errors with variables not being saved or remembered correctly.
* Corrected errors with hiding when not in a party or raid. It will now detect a party or raid correctly.
* Updated version number.

Good luck finding one thats this good. I just ran into it and I love it. No issues what so ever with it because I like the default settings.

Updated

The updated version is ready to go. It should now read and store all settings correctly, and check to see if you are in a party or raid correctly.

I couldn't recreate the error that slappi mention with FishingBuddy, so if anyone else uses FishingBuddy and has errors, let me know, and I'll keep looking into it.

In the future, I will update this addon much faster. Sorry for the wait, everyone!

Thank you! And there is an option to turn on and off the background and borders in the options panel.

Edit: I uploaded a new version that fixes some of the taint issues people were having and also adds some new options.

announcement window suggestion

on the options for the Announcement window could you change the text areas to drop down boxes and allow us to chose witch ones we need to apply to the markers instead of having to retype them all the time, as well as a box where we could stall add our own comments

You shouldn't have to retype them at all, except for when there's an update. I will look into the dropdown idea, though. If anyone has any other suggestions, please PM me or leave a comment here. I'm going to be making a few changes/improvements over the next week or two.

Edit: And I'm working on the taint issues again too!

New version looks great, however I don't see any way to hide the options/rdycheck frame, nor does it seem to save the settings for that frame

I was coming out here to ask the same thing. I only use this addon for the Flare Frame and would like the other 2 hidden. Used to be hidden when it was a part of the Marker frame.
