RecountTweaker
Version: 1.2.1
by: Digital_Utopia [More]
This small addon is designed to alter the appearance of the Recount addon, to make it look better, at least in my opinion. I originally made this a while back for my own needs - to alter said appearance, while still being able to update Recount without having to make changes each time. On request, I'm releasing this to the public.

Big Changes

As I said above, this was originally hacked together for my own personal use, so it really should've come as no surprise when it didn't act like a release quality addon. I also should've taken the time to test it out before releasing it, with that in mind.

Now, however, I've gone ahead and done that and more.

Notable Changes
  • The method in which it tweaks the appearance of recount has been drastically improved. No longer will you have issues with how bars display, because the changes are now done without affecting the bar positions at all.
  • Weird opacity hacks are no longer needed with the background and the title - just make sure the title color is completely opaque, otherwise the background will show through behind. This is something you had to do in the unmodified recount as well.
  • Since the title bar will now always be black, I've hooked into Recount's title bar color setting, and used that to adjust the color of the accent (i.e. buttons, accent strip). So more customization without text editing!
  • RecountTweaker now makes use of LibSharedMedia to allow the optional choice of the included font, via Recount's options, without "hard coding" it into this addon itself.


Instructions

These Have Changed!!

1. In Recount's Options, make sure the Title Bar is completely opaque, otherwise the background will partially show through

2. That's it.
1.2.1 - Fixed the appearance of a 2nd accent line appearing at the bottom of the screen

1.2 - Major overhaul (see Addon Description)

Alright, a good chunk of this has been rewritten, using a different - better method of achieving the same look, without having to mess with the size of the window, or bar locations. It's also been tweaked so it plays nicer with Recount's options, including accent color and font changes.

Let me know if you run into any issues.

Sorry but it still dosen't work for me, its looking like on my screenshot below now but the "overall dmg" is now the wow font and rest is your font. Also the bars are still stucked into the icons :/
Hmm. Ok. I see the issue here. Just a question, when you open the options, does the icons/main bar readjust itself?

At any rate, I'll dig a bit deeper here and see if I can't get a more reliable setup going.

Edit: Okay, I guess I didn't read close enough, plus the language threw me off. I see the issue with the total bar, and after looking over things, I could've done the handling a lot better. I'll work on a fix - for good this time.
