nUI : InfoPanel [Archy]
Version: 5.4.7.17898
by: Xrystal [More]

Credit where Credit is Due

This was born from a request by tinyu in this thread : http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38182

They very kindly tested my initial rough stages with their veteran achaeologist so now I am posting it up for all you budding archaeologists out there.

Requirements
Archy ( Patch version 1.8.42 )
nUI 5.07.42
WoW 5.4.7

Known Limitations

Bear in mind that due to the way that Archy was designed I have had to do some cheating to get it to work. So, if it gets upgraded I probably will need to upgrade this as one of their functions is in here with some customised routines in it.

You may find that you have to make some adjustments to the way archy is displayed to suit your display taste in the infopanel. Things such as opacity and style work fine with little problems. I suggest Minimal layout as Graphical layout causes the buttons to appear over the action bar under the infopanel.

Enhancements
At present I don't see a real need to make any changes.

Reporting Problems
If you do come across problems then feel free to comment in the thread here but if there is a screenshot you need to attach then simply refer to a post in the thread I linked above and attach the image to the post.
-- v5.4.7.17898 --
Should no longer activate if the character you are on does not have the archy skill.

-- v5.4.0.17399 --
TOC Change
Note that you need to use the Minimal Layout to have both the frame and buttons stay inside the infopanel.

-- v1.04.00 --
Added the auto toggling of all frames when the archy infopanel isn't active. It in essence uses the general options show toggle automatically. As long as you aren't in combat that is.
Tested and confirmed working with version 1.8.18 of Archy and 4.3.3 of WoW.

-- v1.03.00 --
Tested and confirmed working with version 1.8.3 of Archy and 4.1.0 of WoW.

-- v1.02.00 --
Tested and confirmed working with patch version 1.7b8.bf6 of Archy.
You must set display of digsite frame to graphical to have the right size frame.
As long as you are not in combat it will hide/show the artifact/races/indicator frame dependant on display of digsite frame.

nUI: InfoPanel [Archy] not in nUI panel

Hey lately if I have Archy turned on it shows up how it would if I didn't have this plugin on at all. It doesn't show up as one of the options in the info panel now and so kind of sits over the bags when I use nUI. Not sure if everyone is having this problem or not, but I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if there is an issue with the plugin... Thought I would bring it up. Thanks for a great add-on I love it when it works

Updated with a slight change which seemed to have been working fine, but I have seen some glitches with it. When you hop from a character that doesn't have archy to one that does it seems to have a problem with it. (*1) But it could also be that the ones I am switching to have less than 5 points in the ability. Try a reload of the UI if it plays up on you and let me know if reloading causes other problems.

edit: (*1) - Seems not to be the case as it glitches out with an archy 90 toon.

Let me know if this causes more problems than having it always appear on all toons and I will change it back.

edit2: - Definitely needs some tweaking anyway as I only have one high archy level toon to test this with but spotted a few things that may not quite be ideal at the present. If it causes you major problems before I get it resolved simply look for the line containing:

-- Why use a frame if you don't use archaeology
local _, _, archySkill = GetProfessions()

and add a line underneath so that it reads
archySkill = true

This should revert the addon to doing what it used to do and display an infopanel regardless of whether they have any archy skill or not.

This plugin still works in 5.0.4 but it is slightly oversize for the infopanel frame. I am working on a basic alternative but may take awhile.

Let me know if the latest change to archy has messed things up.

I'll try and spend some time on addons during this weeks wow play time.

Archy has 2 windows if I remember rightly and the infopanel only holds one of them but I believe the addon is active just not visible for the most part. The extra window will only be displayed when archy is visible in the infopanel. I don't use carbonite so I never noticed that side of the problem. I'll see if there is a programmatic way I can turn off those when the archy infopanel isn't active.

That was the fix, thanks. I thought I had to turn on Archy myself, and let the infopanel turn it off/on from there (like Carbonite).

But yes, it seems that I had 2 copies of Archy running when the info panel was up, and one hidden copy running in the background otherwise.

if archy has its own option to turn itself you could try using it while its active in the panel and then switch to the carbonite and see if that works.

I rather like having Archy slipped into the Infopanel to just find a space for it, but I could go for making a few tweaks, if anyone can tell me how possible these are:

Archy never turns off. So I constantly have a waypoint set on my Carbonite map for the nearest Archy dig, unless I have one locked in for a quest. But I like to run around with NO waypoints quite often. So... is there a way for me to get Archy to completely turn off when I am not on that panel?


What I would REALLY like is if the Carbonite map would show up in the small square to the right of the Archaeology panel, but from what I understand in the Carbonite panel comments, you cannot adjust the size/location of the map panel, so that one is out.

No worries, most of the nUI InfoPanel plugins will require the addon itself to be present. As far as I know only my chat plugins and my mage portal plugin are fully incorporated into a single addon and possibly Scott's.

For this addon to work you need Archy and nUI. You might have to tick the load out dated addons box to ensure all 3 addons are loaded however.

Also note that this message may be caused by other addons similarly afflicted unless it specifically named archy/nui_archy/nui.

Can you reply with the exact message.
sorry, my mistake I thought that Archy addon was include in the info panel.
I got it working now

thanks

Dependency Missing

Hello
I had the Dependency missing in my addon list and I'm sure it's because I have updated Nui + to the latest vesion that came out today and the info panel is not yet updated
so when can you expect the next update to the Info Panel?

Thanks weir, I'll consider that but if you can post a picture on the thread link on the main addon page that would be great.

Just to make it easier: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=38182

Graphical Error

I am using a laptop to play some of the time and the graphics are unplayable on it. I have a screenshot for reference if you need. Basically, the survey and green ball hang off the bottom of the screen and cover the icons below. Perhaps allocating it to the right of the Digsites?
