Goose
Version: 1.6b
by: Alestane [More]
Goose is a simple state-based addon that dynamically hides selected chosen interface elements under the macro-able conditions of your choice. It's configured through the new Interface Options control panel. It can select frames based on a simple global name or a specific Lua identity.
1.5b - stripped out an issue with bad frame references.

1.3b - cleaned up a few more bad variable names.

1.2b - fixed that blasted InCombatLockDown bug.

1.1b - added a slash command for macro use:
/goose (open config)
/goose frame (unregister frame)
/goose frame conditions (register frame)

1.0b - Updated the add-on for the new Interface Options, and made it generically able to hide or show any frame on any conditions.

Could I hide tooltips with goose?

I find the tooltip of recount very annoying (that pops up when I hover with the mouse over a combatant). Would be glad if I can get rid of it...

I'm having problems with this addon where it will only save up to 3 entries. If I add any more, it just deletes the old ones.

I worked around this by adding entries myself in the lua file in savedvariables, and then setting it to read-only. But obviously this is a less than optimal solution. I'm guessing that something changed in the latest patch? dunno

Pretty nice addon overall.

You should check out this page. I think you could write some complicated things to get this done, such as:

[actionbar:1,mod:alt] [actionbar:2,mod:alt] [actionbar:3,mod:alt] [actionbar:4,mod:alt] [actionbar:5,mod:alt]

but I don't know if there is a character limit to goose's conditionals. Anyway, this should be all the conditionals that goose can interact with.

What's the frame name for that? I tried using DevTools, but it just returns the name of the action bar and not the actual page.
I may not be understanding you right; the different "pages" of the main action bar don't actually have different names. The same bar and buttons are reused for all six pages, but they update themselves to show different actions according to which page is designated as current.

Right now, the best resources for finding frame names are mods like FluidFrames or the frame stack tool in Iriel's DevTools. That said, I may add a visual selection tool to Goose to allow you to select frames by clicking on them.

I'm going to start using this addon when WotLK hits (actually, when 3.0 hits). I'm currently using up all of my character specfic macro slots on two of my 70s... and I can already think of a few more macros I'd write based on the new spells/talents I'll be getting. Majority of my macros are cast conditions depending on modifier and target (harm/help/player), and this addon seems like it's going to solve my crazy macro creation just by creating common conditions and switching action bars accordingly!

With that said, I'm not all that familiar with global names of frames or specific Lua identity. For users of this addon (or even the other), can anyone show me some direction about possible other addons, macros, scripts, documentation on where I could identify the name of certain frames?

Thanks!

The fix for this will be in the next upload.

I completely understand, just making sure I wasn't missing something. I'll still be using this in my next ui project so thanks for the development. Definitely wouldn't be against a command for on the go modification though. :P

However, I may make a /command to change conditions and then you could macro it.
