Xcalc  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.73
by: moird, Dridzt

Xcalc is a fairly basic calculator that allows mathematical equations to be entered via the console
or by using the GUI calculator interface.

Xcalc is based off of QuickCalc by Mark Ribau. A good portion of the code has been rewritten, and
the GUI has been completely rewritten.

Usage
slash commands

  • /xcalc
  • /calc
  • /=
Clicking the minimap icon or typing the command without parameters opens the xcalc GUI.
Numpad keys can be remapped to the calculator keys when the GUI is visible if that option is selected.
Shift-Enter with the GUI visible opens chat and Shift-Click on result inserts it to chat editbox.

Xcalc supports computing expressions from the command line.
This is accessed by typing out one of the slash commands with the expression following the slash command.

Math operators
+ - * / ^ ( ) (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, power, grouping)
Special Keyword:
ans - Will return the last answer given from using the slash commands

Math Functions
Reference at Wowpedia.

Money strings
  • #.#g
  • #.#s
  • #c
  • #g#s#c
  • #g#s
  • #g#c
  • #s#c

Examples
  • /calc 2 + 2
    xcalc Result: 2 + 2 = 4
  • /calc 3.5g
    xcalc Result: 3.5g = 3g50s
  • /calc (3.5g + 50s) * 2
    xcalc Result: (3.5g + 50s) * 2 = 8g
  • /calc 4g / 5
    xcalc Result: 4g / 5 = 80s

yay updated for 5.3.

goin to give this another try because having to type /dump every time in the chat window gets a bit annoying lol.

And i don't know how feasible it would be but perhaps a idea for an improvement (if it could be done without adding much weight to the addon): something like windows calc where you can see the history of things figured, even if it isn't clickable... could just be a simple text list of what the game returns, with some kinda clear or reset function. Would definitely be alot better than having to try to pick results out from all the /2 chatter

Hey, thanks for this post. I hadn't even thought of checking Curse for this, and was bemoaning fate that I'd never find an acceptable alternative.

Thanks, I don't know if that would be a good modification at this time compared to what would have to be done. I think there is another mod out there that can do that and it should work with mine, if not then creating a macro with /= or /xcalc or such should bring up the gui and the minimap button can be turned off.
But I was considering adding the ability to have an icon on fubar if it is present but that is still a ways out

So it has come to my attention that there is still an issue with the automatic bindings. It specifically has to do with some other mods hooking into the save bindings whenever a keybinding changes. The problem is that the automatic bindings rely on that *not* happening. To make xcalc more compatible with other mods though it will take a significant rewrite to the whole keybindng system in place which will likely take a bit.
*Edit*
this has been fixed in 2.1.17

Thanks alot.
That problem stems from that it uses the per character key binds when it does the auto switching (rather annoying when i like to have all the keys the same on every character and it switches them on me), and due to the fact that if you are engaged in combat the key bind functions of the WoW API are locked out and can't work again until you leave combat, but the bind function of the mod still fire and so you end up with keys that aren't bound anymore and everything gets all screwed up. The fix for this isn't a simple copy and paste job. I've actually been tweaking the mod this morning to get it to work more the way i want it to. Added a binding for backspace to the backspace key, made it so that the escape key will clear the calculator when it's open and close the mod if pressed a second time, made the display toggle button like i mentioned in my last post, and made it so that it will auto close when entering combat and reopen exactly how you left it when combat ends. However the ways i do this aren't very clean at the moment. If i get more time in the near future i may polish things up a bit and post a fan update of the mod with all my changes.

i have the latest version and i was getting hit with an error if i would try to do multiple calculations in a row. EG: 2+2+3=7 2+ERROR.

Changing lines 377-378 to the following fixed this problem and made the mod act like a normal calculator or like the calc program that comes with windows. This fix should be incorperated into the actual mod. If there is a better fix, feel free to do it. However, without this the mod is only good for 1 calc at a time unless you hit the clear button in between every calculation that you do.

Code:
function xcalc_numkey(key)
	if XCALC_PREVIOUSOP == "=" then
		xcalc_clear()
	end
	local currText = XCALC_NUMBERDISPLAY;
I would also suggest changing the binding to close the Xcalc window with one that toggles it. eg replace the XC_CLOSE binding with this one
Code:
     <Binding name="XC_DISPLAY" description="Toggle Xcalc">
          xcalc_windowdisplay();
     </Binding>

There is a problem with keybindnings. When that feature is active, all bindings on the numerical keyboard are resetted.

4g*20s = 400s*20s = 8000s^2 = 0.8g^2
and it should be reasonably easy to implement this in a domain where there's only 1 dimension...but why bother? I can't imagine any reason why anyone would ever multiply two amounts of money. Probably 4g*20s should just return "User error! WTF were you thinking?"
I like that "User error! WTF were you thinking?"
I should set it up to make the check and not allow multiplication or division with money and money... Just this hasn't been one of my bigger priority programs of late. (inadvertently the reason why I haven't been updating it very much)
