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.

I am sure most of you are aware by now that Archy has been affected by the archaeology changes in 4.0.6. Once archy is working for non nUI infopanel users I will look into making the infopanel work if it is broken.

Archy

I wasn't able to use this mod prior to nor after 4.0.6 patch. I also noticed there is no setting available to configure. That said, am I missing the / commands somewhere? How do I configure it. When I log in, my old archy program is still on the main screen and nothing is in the nui archy tab.

Hmm, you should have one of the archy frames in the infopanel itself by default. With one sitting outside. Unfortunately the frame is only so big so only one frame can be put inside the infopanel.

I've noticed in other infopanel plugins that sometimes the loading order changes and it doesn't know that nUI has an infopanel but in those instances a /nui rl will get it to display.

Also, please note that if you have archy itself toggled off it will be toggled off in the infopanel too.

Lua error

Hey Xrystal! First off, great nUI plugin!

Just started using it today and it seems really useful, but I keep getting the same Lua error over and over again;

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Message: ...ace\AddOns\Archy\Libs\LibArchaeology-0.1\library.lua:308: Usage:GetCurrencyInfo(currencyType)
Time: 02/12/11 15:04:47
Count: 230
Stack: [C]: in function `GetCurrencyInfo'
...ace\AddOns\Archy\Libs\LibArchaeology-0.1\library.lua:308: in function <...ace\AddOns\Archy\Libs\LibArchaeology-0.1\library.lua:301>

...ace\AddOns\Archy\Libs\LibArchaeology-0.1\library.lua:280: in function <...ace\AddOns\Archy\Libs\LibArchaeology-0.1\library.lua:280>

Interface\AddOns\Carbonite\Carbonite.lua:1243: in function <Interface\AddOns\Carbonite\Carbonite.lua:1202>

Locals: (*temporary) = "Interface\Archeology\Arch-Race-Dwarf"
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I've been watching the errors as they come up and that line (308) seems to be the only one in issue. I even tried surveying a dig site to see if discovering the currency would solve the problem, but alas, it didn't.

Looking forward to using this more in the future!

That error seems to be coming from Carbonite but I have friends that have had to turn off Archy because it isn't working with the new patch.

Have you tried using Archy without my plugin to see if the error still occurs ?

Yes...the same error happens, still centered on line 308

Ah sounds like Archy is still broken then, possibly due to the archaelogy changes done in 4.0.6.

I would suggest posting the error on the archy pages and seeing if the author is tracking down the new problems.

Yeah, I saw that someone else had made some changes to the addon, I was just hoping the original author would make the necessary changes themselves.

With the bug fix version installed how is the infopanel affected ? I can see they are thankfully using the same frame name I used before but where I had to hook into the original functions to get it to work I'm not sure of the effect.

And I can see from comments on the original addon page that some people have made simple changes to fix the currency error.

This means currently that people could be using different versions of the same addon making it awkward to know which one is the best to use. If I fix it to work with one of them .. those using the other fix may have it not working and vice versa.

Okay, just to make sure I hadn't made any changes before testing I downloaded a fresh copy of this addon and used it with version 1.7b8.bf6 of Archy found here ( http://www.wowinterface.com/download...chybugfix.html ).

As is it is, it works fine with the infopanel plugin. I noticed some code that needs to be changed before it stops working fully ( blizzard changes ) and realised that quite possibly people will not want to see their artifact list if they haven't got the infopanel on the archy page so told it to turn it off.

It has to be set to graphical option however as the minimal version is too big to fit in the frame and resizing it would make the font way too small. Once I figure out how to do that automatically I will endeavour to add that to the small update I will be posting up in the near future.

I used to post some of my addons on curse but then I had severe problems getting an important patch version accepted after someone made a complaint that my addon gave them a virus. That prompted me to remove my addons promptly.

That problem aside I always made a point of only my more popular addons being put on curse which would mean this addon would not have been one of them.

I will gladly send you a message, however, when I make an update so that you can come by and download it.
