WhatGives
Version: 1.1
by: FitzCC [More]
If you've ever spent time poring over tooltips in your character screen trying to find how in the world you have X% of some stat, this is the mod for you.

Using WhatGives
This addon is very simple. Open your character screen with the mod enabled. You will see a new dropdown at the botton of the screen. The dropdown contains all the statistics and slot types awarded by your gear. If you want to see which of your gear has Hit, for example, select "Hit Rating" from the dropdown menu. All your gear that awards Hit Rating will now be highlighted.

There are a few slash commands available. To hide WhatGives in the character window, use /wg hide. Likewise, to show it: /wg show. For a list of all commands, type /wg or /wg help.

Does WhatGives Handle Reforging/Gemming/Enchanting/Set Bonuses/Etc?
Yes. The addon works by scanning your equipment every time you open your character screen. It captures all stats awarded by gear, including set bonuses and reforging.

Is WhatGives Available in My Language?
Yes and no. The stats use Blizzard's localization, and should display/parse correctly in any language (caveat: not tested). However, the few addon-specific strings are only in English at the moment. Hit me up if you're interested in translating!

Cool! But I Want WhatGives to ALSO do X/Y/Z....
I'm happy to add features if you have ideas for expansion, and have a few ideas myself if the addon takes off. Reply in the comments or open a ticket. Also, feel free to hack it yourself.

Having a problem, and I don't know why:
Code:
BugGrabberDB = {
	["lastSanitation"] = 3,
	["session"] = 1,
	["errors"] = {
		{
			["message"] = "whatgives-r3\\WhatGives-r3.lua:222: bad argument #1 to \"pairs\" (table expected, got no value)",
			["time"] = "2012/01/25 01:32:00",
			["locals"] = "button = CharacterHeadSlot {\n 0 = <userdata>\n UpdateTooltip = <func> @FrameXML\\PaperDollFrame.lua:2435\n popoutButton = CharacterHeadSlotPopoutButton {}\n backgroundTextureName = \"interface\\paperdoll\\UI-PaperDoll-Slot-Head.blp\"\n border = <unnamed> {}\n count = 1\n hasItem = 1\n searchOverlay = CharacterHeadSlotSearchOverlay {}\n icon = CharacterHeadSlotIconTexture {}\n ignoreTexture = <unnamed> {}\n}\nunit = \"player\"\nslotId = 1\nstats = <table> {}\nitemLink = \"|cffffffff|Hitem:61522:0:0:0:0:0:0:1911558272:36:0|h[]|h|r\"\n_BUTTONS = <table> {\n (null) = 1\n}\nGetStatsFromTooltip = <func> @whatgives\\WhatGives.lua:173\n_ITEMS = <table> {}\n_FUNC_INSERT = <func> =[C]:-1\n",
			["stack"] = "<in C code>\nwhatgives-r3\\WhatGives-r3.lua:222: in function <whatgives\\WhatGives.lua:212>\nwhatgives-r3\\WhatGives-r3.lua:250: in function <whatgives\\WhatGives.lua:243>\nwhatgives-r3\\WhatGives-r3.lua:380: in function <whatgives\\WhatGives.lua:379>\n<in C code>\nFrameXML\\PaperDollFrame.lua:2293: in function \"PaperDollItemSlotButton_OnShow\"\n<string>:\"*:OnShow\":1: in function <string>:\"*:OnShow\":1\n<in C code>\nFrameXML\\UIParent.lua:1607: in function \"SetUIPanel\"\nFrameXML\\UIParent.lua:1451: in function \"ShowUIPanel\"\nFrameXML\\UIParent.lua:1338: in function <FrameXML\\UIParent.lua:1334>\n<in C code>\nFrameXML\\UIParent.lua:2044: in function <FrameXML\\UIParent.lua:2032>\n<in C code>\nFloatingFrames\\FloatingFrames-2.5.lua:320: in function \"ff_DragBar_MakeBar\"\nFloatingFrames\\FloatingFrames-2.5.lua:554: in function \"ff_OnEvent\"\n<string>:\"*:OnEvent\":1: in function <string>:\"*:OnEvent\":1",
			["session"] = 1,
			["counter"] = 14,
		}, -- [1]
	},
}
Sorry, just a "copy-n-paste" directly from "BugGrabber.lua" file in the WTF SavedVariables folder. I hope it makes sense to you. It still works, it just throws this error.

Can you be more specific? Are you reporting a bug where your reforged items aren't showing up highlighted correctly, or asking for a feature?

One idea (which I think is what you're asking for) is to highlight things differently for the source of the stat--i.e. red for base, blue for enchant, etc etc. That'd be fairly trivial to add, and could be really useful.

Thanks for the comment!
Not a bug, I was just thinking it would be nice to see what items have been reforged and with what stat changes. Turns out there are other addons that take care of this, however. Thanks!

Gotcha, good call. Going to push an update tonight, seems like a good fix to roll in.

Thanks for the comment!
Update 1.1 submitted. Fixed bugs. Major bugfixes of note:

- Added missing event handling that was causing WG to not get updated when swapping equipment, gems, enchants, etc.

- WG no longer appears on screens other than the character screen.

I'll see if I can't add some of the features requested in this thread this weekend. Thanks for the comments!

Great!

This is an amazing idea mate! The simple ones can often be the best.

Just posting here because I second the idea about specific border colours depending on where the stat comes from (Gem, Enchant, enhancement, Reforge etc).

Please try to steer clear of stat quality colours though. Easily confused, me!

Hey cool idea, could definitely add that. Thanks!
