There was little interest expressed within the Ace community for converting Visor from Ace to Ace2. As a long-time fan of this AddOn, that news didn't bode well for the upcoming (Burning Crusade) Expansion. I'd also been longing to ditch the old Ace libraries, since all of my other Ace'd mods are using Ace2 now.
What this version of Visor contains:
This release includes all of the functionality that I, personally, used from Visor. This includes: frame movement, frame scaling, frame alpha/hide/show, parenting, frame strata/level. This AddOn can be seen as an Ace2'd, lightweight version of MoveAnything or DiscordFrameModifier. There is a bit of a learning curve, but I've included more help within the AddOn itself compared to the earlier versions of Visor, where one had to research the commands on various Web sites. See the screenshot for a list of available commands.
"/vz set <options>" is the Heart & Soul of this AddOn.
Type /"vz help" for a rundown on the various options that can be used to modify frames.
Ace3 conversion planned, once the libs are sorted out for MoP.
I'm hoping to increase the power of the "Frame Finder" functionality. Right now, this is identical to the original Visor, and is rather limited. It will only find top-level frames and not child frames that are deeply nested. For example, the Minimap is a conglomerate of many many frames. Currently the Frame Finder feature will only "find" the main MiniMap frame itself. I'd like to borrow some of Lozareth's ideas from DFM to provide the user with a more complete list of child frames, so they can pick one and assign it by name.
There are a few features from the original Visor which this version lacks. These deal mainly with frame textures, backdrops, button text and chat window & edit box skinning. I may or may not look into adding these at a later date, based on feedback.
This version is able to mimic all of the features that I used from the old Visor. If you download this and give it a spin, and find that the old Visor did something you loved that this one does not, post here and I'll take it into consideration. I've also flagged this as open for people to attach their own modifications. I'll take anything that's posted and see what I can do to work it into the main code.
