TinyPad  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0.5
by: Gello [More]

TinyPad is a notepad addon.

How to Use

To summon: /tinypad or /pad or set a key binding.
To resize: drag the resize grip in the lower right corner of the window.

The mod should be self explanatory how to use. Mouseover buttons to see what they do.

Link Support

  • Links supported: Items, Spells, Tradeskills, Recipes, Quests, Achievements, and Battle Pets you own
  • To add links to pages: Bring up a TinyPad page and put the blinking cursor where you want to insert a link, then shift+click an item, spell, recipe, quest or achievement as you ordinarily would to chat. To link an entire tradeskill, click the chat bubble in the upper right of the tradeskill window, as you would for chat or macros.
  • To view links: Click them.
  • To send links: Shift+click to chat as you would normally.
  • Links can't be copy-pasted naturally and remain clickable. But the addon Linkerize will allow cut/pasting links with control codes.
  • Links may display only a handful of characters, but they have many hidden control characters. The EditBox is not intended to handle massive amounts of text, so keep that in mind if trying to cram the entire contents of AtlasLoot into one page.

Miscellaneous
  • Searches are case insensitive.
  • You can bind a key to search.
  • While locked, the window won't go away with ESC, but you can still toggle it with /pad or a key binding.
  • You can also run pages with /run TinyPad:Run(page)
  • You can add a page with TinyPad:Insert("text here adds a new page")
  • You can delete multiple pages with TinyPad.DeletePagesContaining("regex") NOTE: be careful with this one.
  • Clicking on an item link while a tradeskill window is open will jump to that item if your tradeskill can create it.

Thanks for the feedback!

Cutting/Pasting text that includes a link kills the link. For some reason the identifying code doesn't get copied

I'll think on this. The typing/copy/pasting done into WoW EditBoxes (like the macro edit window, chat window, etc) is done in a "black box" and an addon only knows what it looked like before and after. WoW strips out the control codes on links when you copy them. There's maybe a way to cheat the system by monitoring links in pages and when they disappear/reappear, but any solution would only allow cut/paste within TinyPad. Allowing cut/paste from/to other EditBoxes (like copying links from TinyPad to a macro window) would be prohibitively invasive.

I can't get script-running to work.

Are you getting an error of any sort? When you enter text like:

print("hello world")

and click the Run icon, it runs the page as if it was a lua script. There can be no macro commands in the script. It runs lua, not the macro command parser. /run and /script are macro commands also. Make sure those are removed from any scripts you want to run. ie: /run print("hello world") -> print("hello world")

The ability to reorganize pages without a lot of cut/paste (on, or offline)

This one would be trivial and probably useful. Could make SHIFT while clicking page first/back/forward/last move the page. I'll probably add this.

The ability to have multiple pads, or to create sections within the pad.

This is actually one of the reasons I was considering bookmarks. For instance I'd create a "BG scripts" bookmark and anytime I create a new one I'd go to that bookmark and insert a new page in that area.

AN UNDO FEATURE!

It's been there for years! The little paw icon will undo any changes you make to a page before leaving it.

The ability to have TinyPad feed a list, a line at a time, into the console box as if we had typed it (see script comment above).

It does this now. But it can't do macro commands.

I have about 30 pages in mine, and from time to time I try to consolidate information and regroup it for best fit.

Two small gripes, since you've returned to the fold:
- Cutting/Pasting text that includes a link kills the link. For some reason the identifying code doesn't get copied.
- I can't get script-running to work. (I think I posted somewhere about this.) For example, I had made an entire list of sites to feed into QuestHelper to route through the Lunar Festival or the Fire Festival or such, but I couldn't run it through TinyPad. Does it run as a WoW script in the background?

I don't know that a web-like bookmarking feature would suit me, but some sort of quick ability to find specific pages would be good. Personally, I'd love to have tabs added down the side of the window with either numbers or custom short names.

Other features I would like to see:
- The ability to reorganize pages without a lot of cut/paste (on, or offline)
- The ability to have multiple pads, or to create sections within the pad.
- AN UNDO FEATURE!
- The ability to have TinyPad feed a list, a line at a time, into the console box as if we had typed it (see script comment above).

This has been, far and above, one of the most useful addons I've ever used. Thank you!

Out of curiosity, especially from long time users, is there any real demand for bookmarks or any other universal feature? You can PM me or post here if you have a strong feeling one way or the other.

Back in 2005 when this addon was first posted, the goal was to keep TinyPad as simple and to the point as possible. Over six years later, I have over 800 pages on my personal one now, filled with scripts and experiments and random notes of all kinds. I go back to specific pages often by searching for keywords (usually stuff like archaelogy scripts to save precious macro slots) and in reviewing the addon it seems a prime candidate for a rewrite and maybe a bookmarking ability.

But in asking around, my 800+ pages seems way way more than others who use it. So I may just rewrite it to conform to "modern" methods and keep it simple as it is now.

Woops, I didn't realize until coming here to update the mod that I only posted for Cataclysm beta and not a live version. Sorry about that.

And sorry to all for the extremely long time between updates.

evl's Fix

Thanks evl for the fix, it does change the background back to black.

Two remaining prolbems:

(1) The item linking no longer works:

Message: Interface\AddOns\TinyPad\TinyPad.lua:452: attempt to index global 'ChatFrameEditBox' (a nil value)
Time: 10/14/10 18:53:41
Count: 1
Stack: [C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\TinyPad\TinyPad.lua:452: in function `DoubleClick'
[string "*:OnMouseUp"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnMouseUp"]:1>


(2) As Vidster indicates, you can no longer move the TinyPad frame (even after unlocking it).

Does anyone have any idea why i can not move my tinypad text box since this last patch?.

I can resize it with no problems but i can not move the box itself.

[EDIT] Nvm. There is a new version HERE made by Gello. Thanks for the great work

Confirmed, me too. Hopefully the mod author is still updating this mod.. this is my favorite notepad mod!
