TinyPad  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.95
by: Gello [More]
TinyPad is a notepad addon.

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

__ New in 1.94 __
  • toc update for 5.4 patch

__ Notes on 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 (especially tradeskills). 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.

__ Notes __
  • Searches are case insensitive.
  • You can bind a key to search.
  • Pages aren't "saved" until you leave the page, so expect Search to not find new stuff on your current page.
  • 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
  • Double-clicking a word will highlight the word
  • Clicking on an item link while a tradeskill window is open will jump to that item if your tradeskill can create it

Great Mod. Gello rox. Gotta love the resizer handle appearing again here

One request: ability to set a "title" for a saved page that woudl show up up top. Could then select a page by title instead of scrolling numbers. That's a bit of a design change i know though, so if not i'll just put titles at the top of my note body and live with it

Oh also would love to see a little button to dump the contents of the page to a channel of my choosing (party,raid,custom chan). I guess this would have to break up long notes into multiple "messages." Both of my above ideas are geared towards being able to easily explain fights (boss fights in Zul'Gurub for example) to new players quickly. Basically, have the explanation typed out on a page titled with the boss's name and then when we get there just paste all info to raid chat for others to read and then everone will "be on the same page."
Thanks a lot!

I have seen that mod before but decided against using it due to the text based/manual feedback system (for reporting what step/output number i'm on etc) and clunky interface. The one redeeming aspect is the "titled" notes concept. Thanks for the heads up though.

Those are good ideas but probably this one will stay bare bones. The first line could be the title and ctrl+c/ctrl+v can copy from the window the chat already. At the most I'd probably add a search and a browse that would show the first line of each page.

We'll see tho.

Font Size!!!

An AWESOME feature to add to this already AWESOME mod would be a way to change the font size of the text. I play with a reduced UI scale, so the text for some mods get pretty small.

Anyway, I'm using a simple workaround, which is:
<FontString inherits="GameFontHighlightLarge"/>
<!-- <FontString inherits="GameFontHighlight"/> -->
But it would be nice to be able to have a little selection menu to change the size

Re: Font Size!!!

Yeah font sizes would rock. I had meant to add a checkbox to toggle small/large when we finally got to SetFont editboxes. But with font objects coming in 1.10 I backed off which was unnecessary since the SetFont works the same.

I should note that in 1.10 there's a bug in all multi-line editboxes returning. Filling one line with no linebreak or whitespace won't wrap the line but instead end it in '...' and text afterwards won't appear. Unfortunately it will affect this mod as well as all other notepad-type mods. You can resize the window to be extra wide however so it's not a big problem.

(btw the dynamic frames are awesome)
This has to do with the editbox inheriting the properties of the font object. The fix is sufficiently complex that I'm putting it in 1.11 so I don't accidentally break anything else at this point.

Thanks!

I reeeeally wanted to avoid adding another button to widen the minimum width of the window, but this badly needed an undo.

Let me know if the window width is an issue. I can collapse most of the buttons into one that will pop out a menu. But it'd be cool to keep this as small as humanly possible too.

I've included this AddOn as one of the AceTab example "Quickies." Not sure that you care, but I just wanted you to be aware. Thanks for the great tool; I use it every day!

External Editor for TinyPad

This is a great little mod, i love it.
Always found the data file a pain to edit outside of WoW though, so I wrote an editor to make it easier.

Go to http://members.optusnet.com.au/gerjarran/ if you're interested.

Beautifully written

There lots of hacks writing crappy, bloated addons out there -- this isn't one of them. Minimal, clean, well-documented code. Functions beautifully. Great addon.

Copied from the beta comments

Excellent notepad. I've been using Notepad from the Cosmos package for years, and have been looking for a SIMPLE replacement for a while now. Since Notepad is broken in the 3.02 PTR, it was nice to try TinyPad there and see that it worked.

Might it be possible to add a field next to the page number for a user-defined title for the page? And perhaps a sidebar which would simply list the page numbers and their titles, so that a user could click on a page number or title and jump directly to that page.
