LootCount v1.20 (Changes since v1.16)
[added] Quest-item watch
[fix] Bug when setting plugin watch on plugin
[added] New plugin: Profession watch
[added] Spacers (check key bindings)

New in this release
- Quest-items
Read the section "Quest-items" below.

- Spacers
This is an empty slot that will not display anything, and it is to be used as a spacer between items if you feel like being tidy.
Spacers should be assigned to a shortcut key in the WoW keybindings for quick access. It is also accessible with the command "/lc div". When the available spaces becomes visible, just click where you want the spacers just as you would with a normal item.

- Plugin: Profession
This plugin is explained in the plugin-section below.

First-time install
LootCount is not visible the first time you install it. Show/hide LootCount by typing "/lc". This can also be assigned to a key in the native WoW key-binding options. LootCount will appear in the middle of your screen as an empty green frame. This frame can be moved by dragging it by the corners (and ONLY the corners). Place it somewhere and drop an item on it.

Adding more items
Drag a new item to the LootCount interface, and drop it on any of the newly created slots. Ot you can drop it on an existing item.

Removing item-watches
Double-click an item with the right mouse-button.

Accessing the menu
Right-click an edge of the center frame (not a corner), and the menu will appear.

Group/raid
If you are in a group with someone that also have LootCount, you can watch items as a total. The most common use for this feature is to grind rep-items together with a friend. Both can then drop the rep-item on LootCount, and you will then read a shared total for this item. Now - if you in addition to this want to monitor your items only, you can drop the same item one more time and switch on local-mode for that item-watch.
You can switch this off from the menu.

Usable items
If you place a usable item in LootCount, it will be displayed with a green border and will be activated by a single click. This is a handy space-saver for motes and certain enchanting reagents.

Quest-items
These are items needed to complete a quest that you are on. So, if you don't have any items for any of your quests, this watch will display a questionmark. Just select it from the menu, and click the slot where you want it. You can place as many as you want, as they will always display different items.

Goals
Right-click an item in the LootCount interface, and select "Set goal". Enter the number of items you need and press OK. The watch will now contain two numbers: One for the amount you have, and one for the number of items you still need.

Local-mode
If you for a single watch want it to count only items that you have on your current character, you may want to switch on local-mode. This would for example make sense with soulbound loot. Just right-click the watch and select "local".

Lock
To lock LootCount, open the menu and select "Lock". This will disable moving of the interface and deletion of watches. You will notice the center frame turns red when it is locked.

Layouts
Each character has its own layout. There are also two global layouts available from the LootCount menu. These are common for all characters within a server and faction. Upon selecting a global layout, the center frame turns blue.

Plug-ins
Plug-ins are selectable from the LootCount menu.
A few plug-ins comes bundled with LootCount:
- Repair
- Reputation kill-countdown
- Experience kill-countdown
- Profession level
Any plug-in can be individually switched on/off from the addon-menu at the character selection screen in WoW to conserve memory.

Bundled plug-ins:
- Repair
This plugin will show what the current cost for repair is, and the lowest durability of your worn items.

- Profession
This plugin can monitor your current level in a profession. It is made very simple (for my own use mostly), and will need to see a profession level-up message before it knows about your profession. A profession is selected by right-clicking the watch.

- Kill-countdown with XP and reputation
Ever wondered how many kills you need to level up, or how many kills you need to get to the next reputation level? If you have, LootCount will tell you. Just select the option (REP and/or XP) you need from the LootCount menu and click one of the empty slots that just appeared. If you chose XP, that is all there is to it. If you chose REP you will also need to select the faction you want to watch. You do this by opening the WoW reputation window (shortcut "U"), click the faction you want to watch, check the "View as experience bar" option.
The counter icon will contain two numbers. The bottom-right number will show an estimate based on the last mobs you have been killing, and the upper left will show you how many of the last mob you killed you will need to get to the next level.
If you choose to switch zone or mob-type, LootCount will adapt and tweak the estimate within a number of kills.


Special thanks to:
Faladrin for the initial code and idea for goal-functionality.
Belleboom for group/raid idea.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as it is not done by double-clicking an item in the LootCount interface.

nope I dont get the small black squares around the middle icon..... im gonna try disabling all my addons and see which one creates this problem as I really like the concept of this addon.

Okay. The fault is corrected now. It was all due to a change in the Blizzard XML files that I have not found any documentation for, so a bit of trial and error got it done
In effect, some settings got messed up because of this. I managed to duplicate the error, applied the fix, and now I can't seem to duplicate it again so it should be fine.

This has been asked about from others too, but this requires a serious rewrite of a significant amount of code, so don't expect this to be launched any time soon as I have RL-work piling up on me at the moment.

BUT! All is not lost!
I am right now testing something that at least should help slightly. This will require some practice to use, but for a seasoned LootCount user it should pose no big obstacle.
What I am testing is the possibility to set empty slots, and they will behave just like any other notmal slot. So care is adviced when removing items. But considering most people does not change the layout much once set up, it should be no big hazzle.
This will work like spacers between slots, and is possible to bind to a keypress for fast access. -which helps a lot when building the interface.

Link Wrangler support?

Any chance we might see LinkWrangler support? I believe it uses non-standard tool-tips so we don't see any counts or icons (or the L link button anyway) when we click (Wrangler) links.

I scanned the comments here and didn't see anything about this topic. I apologize if I missed it.

I would love to see an update for 3.1 if it's not too much trouble. I'm not used to counting my items anymore. Great addon!

Thank you for making this addon. I've tried Lootwatch, inventory hawk, and farmerfu. but I always just keep coming back to this one. I never really stop using it. It's just I use it for quest item collections.

so here's my suggestion. Is there a way to make a plug in that will notice quest items. Not the items used for the quests like meat to feed the raptor but things that aren't really tracked like keys to unlock cages for one of the Argent tourn quest. I'm not sure how to even suggest something like this.

Well, I do understand what you mean. I will have to think about that one for a bit. The problem is that the information is not immediately available through the game engine, so it can't be pulled straight from the quests. I'll see if I can come up with something.
