FluidFrames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.4.40000
by: AnduinLothar [More]
Move, hide, scale, and resize frames with independent x&y axes.

Usage Instructions:

Unsaved Movement
  • Drag almost any normal UI Panel (e.g. CharacterFrame, SpellbookFrame, TalentFrame, QuestLogFrame, FriendsFrame, etc.) from any open space on the frame. This movement is intended to be for temporary changes and does not store location in the FluidFrames database.
  • However, this movement registers the frame as user placed. The position will be remembered by the WoW client and restored on subsequent login/reloadui if not overridden by placement code (e.g. CharacterFrame, Minimap). Most of these draggable frames reset if you hide and re-show them.
  • Some frames will not reset automatically (e.g. GameMenuFrame, BattlefieldFrame). To reset these, highlight the frame, right click to reset and then reloadui/relog.
  • The MinimapCluster is an added exception case and can be dragged by the top bar.
  • Temporary dragging can be disabled using the checkbox in the Khoas options.
Saved Movement
  • Assign a key-binding [Main Menu > Key Bindings > FluidFrames > Highlight Mouse Frame] to select, highlight and cycle through frames under the cursor. (The "Highlight All Mouse Frames" binding cycles through all frames under the cursor, including unnamed ones.)
  • Put your cursor over the frame you want to move and use the key-binding. It will select the frame the furthest underneath. Consecutively using the key-binding will highlight frames closer to the front. Hold shift while using the key-binding to cycle backwards through the frames.
  • Drag the highlighted frame to relocate it permanently. It will disable movement from other code sources and save across sessions.
  • Hold shift and drag from the sides or corners to resize.
  • Hold shift and drag the bottom right re-scale icon to re-scale.
  • Right-click to reset a moved/resized/rescaled frame once highlighted.
Notes:
  • To drag some bars you have to drag the 1st button.
  • To move the primary action button bar drag ActionButton1.
  • To find the ShapeshiftBarFrame put your mouse over the left edge of the 1st button when using the key-binding.
  • To drag all the player buffs & debuffs make sure you drag the TemporaryEnchantFrame.
  • To move Chat Frames just unlock and use the default tabs.
  • To drag the TargetFrame make sure you don't drag the TargetFrameTextureFrame on accident.
  • To move the whole minimap drag the MinimapCluster.
  • Experiment with which frame to change. if it doesn't work the way you wanted just right-click to reset.
  • Some frames have complex sub frames that update their locations independent of parent size. If resizing doesn't work well try scaling.
  • If secure frames are moved by default blizzard code while in combat they cannot be moved back until after combat. Also, you will not be able to drag secure frames in combat.

FAQ:
Q) How do I use the same settings for all my characters?
A) Edit FluidFrames.toc and change "SavedVariablesPerCharacter" to "SavedVariables"

Q) How do I control a Vehicle/MindControl when the MainMenuBar is hidden.
A) Temporarily unhide the MainMenuBar, highlight it and drag it up off the bottom. Execute the script "/run BonusActionBarFrame:Show()". The BonusActionBarFrame should appear bellow the MainMenuBar. Highlight it and drag it where you'd like. Highlight the MainMenuBar, right click to reset it, then click the 'Hide' button above it and un-highlight it by using the binding again. Note that if you don't do this when hiding the MainMenuBar your primary action bar bindings may break when you leave a Vehicle/MindControl.

Q) How do I reset frames I can't figure out how to highlight?
A) If worse comes to worse you can reset everything with the chat command: "/resetframes" tho you probably want to follow that with a reload ui as well before you start retweeking.
v2.4 (Dridzt)
- Replaced 'this' with 'self' '(this' is deprecated)
- Replaced getglobal() with direct _G lookups (getglobal is deprecated)
- Workaround for EnumerateFrames() bug (thanks to Tayedaen)
- Prevent taint when opening the spellbook and a couple other frames in combat.
- TOC to 40000

v2.3.30100
- toc bump to 30100

v2.3
- Added out of combat delays to re-hide and re-position secure frames that were moved in combat.
- Added dependent sibling frame detection to scale/resize/hide frames that had the same parent and whose position is exclusively dependent on the frame being scaled/resized/hidden or one of its other dependent sibling frames.
- Delayed SetParent and Show hooks to undo on the next OnUpdate so as to also catch dependent siblings parented or shown at the same time.
- Delayed SetPoint, SetParent and Show hooks to undo when you leave combat for secure frames.
- Refactored code to a number of files to make updating easier.

v2.2
- Enabled SendMailFrame, TokenFrame, and the PetPaperDollFrameCompanionFrame for dragging their parent frame
- Found a bug that was breaking UIChildWindows dragging, but then decided to just disable it by design, since those frames are all anchored to their parent frame, which are draggable.

v2.1
- Changed distribution to distribute FluidFrames with Portfolio unembedded.
- Fixed bug that caused LoD UI Panels to not be temporarily draggable
- TOC to 30000

v2.0
- Embedded Interface Config Option Panel (Using Portfolio instead of Khaos)
- Added Re-show All option, to show all hidden frames without resetting position.
- Fixed temporary dragging

FluidFrames covering my settings for other addons

When i open my addon settings for my addons via Interface > Addons
something from FluidFrames covers the settings (Screenshot link below)

Could you please fix this?

I just downloaded the most recent version from wowinterface.com

Link: http://imgur.com/HVVhS

As you can see in that screenshot (im on SexyMap > clock as an example, but its like it on all the pages) FluidFrames is overlaying its settings over the top of those frames, but not the standard blizzard Interface > Game

Spec specific frame builds

hey i'm a druid and i really want to set my frames differently for PvP vs. PvE, is that capability already a part of fluid frames? If not, I hope you make it so.

Just wanted to say this addon worked perfect for resizing my action bar. I've looked for ways to do it, and 10 seconds after installing this I had it the size I wanted. Thanks

Will we be seeing an update to this addon soon? It's the only addon out there which allows positioning and resizing of frames.

When i'm in a BG, Fluidframes gives me an error:

1x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "FluidFrames" tried to call the protected function "FriendsFrame:EnableMouse()".
<in C code>
FluidFrames\FrameTempDragging.lua:41: in function "InitTempDraggableFrames"
FluidFrames-2.4\FluidFrames-2.4.lua:251: in function <FluidFrames-2.4\FluidFrames-2.4.lua:248>

Locals:
nil

I'm not even trying to use a FluidFrame function. I'm just playing the BG normally.

For some reason FluidFrames doesn't get along very well with my map. At first I thought Carbonite was causing the problem but after doing an addon check I found out it was this.

Screenshots in this thread: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...761#post232761

Is there any way to fix this? I really like FluidFrames but the problems its causing with my map are really annoying.

Its the addon that creates the fluidframes options in blizzards option panel.

Is there an easy way to get the same size/scale on two frames?
I'd love to have the same size player and target frames, but been trying for the past 30 minutes and I can't seem to hit the right symmetry.

Hi,

I am having some issues with this addon. I configured everything the way I wanted on 1 of my toons, but when I switch to another toon everything is reset. When I switched back to the toon I made the configurations with, everything is reset too.

Thanks in advance

Will this be able to move the Rocket Vehicle Frame, as well as the Blizzard Ticket Frame?
