Trinket Menu  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.0.2
by: Gello, Resike
This is a mod to make swapping trinkets easier. It will display your two equipped trinkets in a bar. Mouseover on either trinket will display a menu of up to 30 trinkets in your bags to swap.

Swapping/Using trinkets

Left click a trinket in the menu to equip it to the top trinket slot.
Right click a trinket in the menu to equip it to the bottom trinket slot.
Left or Right click either trinket to use them. Or make a key binding for either trinket.

Auto Queue

3.0 introduces auto trinket queues to TrinketMenu. In options you can sort a trinket slot to the order you want trinkets equipped, turn on Auto Queue for that slot (Alt+Click the trinket on the bar or check the tab in options), and the mod will automatically swap trinkets as they're used and come off cooldown.

It was (hopefully) made to be intuitive enough to use without instructions, but if wondering about specifics:

The auto queue rules are:
  • A trinket at 30 seconds or less cooldown is considered off cooldown.
  • If the currently equipped trinket is on cooldown, swap to the first available trinket not on cooldown.
  • If the currently equipped trinket cannot go on cooldown (passive trinkets), equip a higher ranking trinket when it comes off cooldown.
  • If the currently equipped trinket is ready for use, then do nothing unless a higher-ranked trinket marked 'Priority' is waiting to swap in.
  • If a trinket has a 'Delay' defined, then hold that trinket for its delay before swapping it out. (ie, Earthstrike for 20 seconds)
Auto queue icon colors:
  • A gold gear on a trinket means that auto queue is active for that slot.
  • A grey gear on a trinket means the equipped trinket has a delay defined and is waiting to swap out.
  • A red gear on a trinket means the equipped trinket is flagged 'Pause Queue' and auto queue is suspended.
Other auto queue notes:
  • If you use some mod to automatically swap in passive trinkets (Carrot on a Stick or Argent Dawn Commission), flag those trinkets 'Pause Queue' to suspend the queue while they're equipped.
  • Swapping to a passive trinket manually in TrinketMenu will stop the auto queue for that slot. Alt+click the slot to turn auto queue back on.
  • A purely passive trinket will mark the natural end of a queue. If you would like the queue to stop sooner (ie, Burst of Knowledge as bottom-most trinket even on cooldown), move the "Stop queue here" mark to where you want the queue to stop.
  • The auto queues work independently of the "trinket ready!" notifications.
  • Trinkets attempting to swap during combat or while dead will queue for when you drop out of combat or return to life.
  • If you don't want to use auto queue and would like to remove it completely, you can delete TrinketMenuQueue.xml and TrinketMenuQueue.lua while out of game. The remaining mod will be about the size of TrinketMenu 2.7 and run better than 2.7.

Auto Queue Shared Timers

Keep in mind as you set up your queues that many trinkets trigger shared cooldown timers. As an example:

Trinket 0 contains a Cannonball Runner not on cooldown
Trinket 1 contains a Diamond Flask not on cooldown

When you click Diamond Flask, it will put the Cannonball Runner into a 60-second cooldown. TrinketMenu will then look for something more available for Trinket 0, and then 30 seconds later as the Cannonball Runner comes off cooldown it will swap it back in.

This is expected behavior. If it seems like this happens a lot, you may want to Auto Queue only one trinket slot, until you get trinkets that can be used without triggering the other's cooldown.

Customizing Display

The main and menu windows are independently scalable and rotatable. While the windows are unlocked:
  • Move either window by dragging its edge.
  • Rotate either window by right-clicking its edge.
  • Scale/resize either window by dragging the lower-right corner to the desired size.

If you're having problems grabbing the edge of the menu window to move/rotate/resize it, hold Shift down while it's open and the menu won't go away when the mouse leaves the menu's edge.

If you right-click the gear icon around the minimap (or /trinket options) a small options window will appear under the minimap. Here you can customize the display further by showing cooldowns as numbers and keeping the menu always open.

Once you're settled on a setup you like, you can lock the windows in options.

To set an exact scale (optional):
  • /trinket scale main n : Scale the main window to n
  • /trinket scale menu n : Scale the menu window to n
  • ie: /trinket scale menu 0.85

How about adding key binding to use both trinkets while you're at it ?
Something like "Use any available trinket"
(yes, I know it can be done with a macro easily but still )

Bindings can be modified manually in the corresponding file in a few seconds. Just bind a key what you can, then open the text file and replace it with what you need.

Another solution is to roll back to the previous version of trinket menu, bind it using that, and then roll up to the new one. And another is to grab a legacy settings file out of your WTF folder from a previous version. You can't bind in the main WoW binding section anymore, since the only option there is to toggle seeing the menu (not that you'd want to but it was an option prior to this version).
Your first suggestion didn't work. About downgrading, that was what made me lose my keybindings. I had them working, I upgraded to the bugged versions and my keybindings stopped working. Tried to go back but I can't get the version that worked. I think it was another author who uploaded the patched version.
And I have tried the WTF file, but I never got it to work. Or I got it to work on 1 of the trinket slots but no matter what I did it wont work on the second one.

Edit: No wait, your first suggestion did work. I just released the key the first time I tried it.

I'm glad you believe there are lots of mods that will properly unload the crop after combat stops. I look forward to seeing you and the user community fill this forum with all the mod names that sport such functionality.

When I go to bind any shift, alt, or control key combo in the Trinket Menu binding interface, pressing any of those 3 keys closes the binding interface. So, they can't be bound in combination. Can this be changed?

Re: Re: Skinning Issue

That's far, far better if a separate module can handle ButtonFacade. Nicely done jazzyfox!

Realistically I can't see native support until I'm clear on some things.

Mostly, I don't need to include ace libraries at all, right? I often don't use any ace mods. Native support is just checking if ButtonFacade is loaded and then registering some bits if it is, and then moving on if it isn't?

Are there plans to incorporate the new kid on the block? Button Facade.

Here is the Ace thread if you have yet to see it, although I doubt it. Others are asking the same question and some are using the autobar trinket feature in place of trinket menu. Any possibility of incorporation of using BF for the skin of TM?
I wrote up a TrinketMenu_ButtonFacade addon in the style of the PT3Bar module that adds support. Not sure how wide to release it if Gello plans on adding native support, so for now here it is if you have some git-fu:

http://github.com/jazzyfox/trinketme...de/tree/master

It supports TrinketMenu just as much as cyCircled ever did (i.e. it skins the main buttons but not the popups, which I can live with)

On the riding crop, select the riding crop in the queue list. At the bottom you'll see a "Pause Queue" checkbox. Check that for the riding crop or any other trinket you don't want trinketmenu's queues to mess with.

While that's checked, if a mod swaps in a riding crop it will suspend queues (little gear icon will turn red on that slot) until the riding crop is swapped back out. Then it will resume normal operation.
That will prevent TrinketMenu from swapping it back out, but doesn't solve the main problem. The main issue is when I attack a target to dismount, all other addons that I've tried do not queue the swap. So they try to remove the riding crop and fail because I am in combat. Then when combat ends, I'm stuck manually moving the crop out. Since I routinely forget to do this, I end up fighting for several minutes or hours with my crop equipped. I need TM to notice I am no longer mounted and restore the slot to its previous function by placing the orginal trinket back or resuming auto-queue.

If you know of another addon that will sit there waiting until the end of time for combat to drop and still make the change, let me know.

Riding crop request

Gello, can you add the logic to swap the riding crop in as soon as you mount? I'd like Trinketmenu to put back whatever was there when I dismount or return to queuing if that was the case before I mounted.

The problem with most mods that do this is they conflict with Trinketmenu and trinketmenu just swaps the crop right back out. More importantly, they don't queue trinkets. So if I attack something to dismount, the other mods fail to swap out the crop due to being in combat and then it is never replaced (no queuing). Trinketmenu's awesome queuing would continue to try and restore the original trinket slot item until I drop combat.

A check box to enable/disable this feature would allow people in the BG's to avoid this behavior.

Thanks for your consideration and great mod.
