Satrina Buff Frames 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.1.25
by: Satrina, father0fnine
SBF has a maintainer!
I have to say, I am amazed by the number of people who just kept plugging along. It makes me feel bad that I do not have the time to keep working on this myself - you guys are all awesome! The good news is that a new maintainer has been found. Meet father0fnine, who is taking over SBF. I'm sure you'll all show him as much love as you showed me all these years

Updated beta 14 to 15 and fps in raid has tanked. I've disabled SBF and fps has increased. I do use BF but I wasn't having any issues with it last night in beta 14.

You will not get the "invalid order function for sorting" message anymore. Let me know if you encounter any new and fun errors with buff sorting

Other than that, just some fixes for small problems. If nobody reports horrible problems with buff sorting or something new, it goes to release.

Anyway, about true "sticky frames" where you dynamically tack frame 2 onto the end of frame 1. People like that feature in Elkano's, but it's a harder problem to solve for SBF. Elk doesn't allow you to do multiple row/column layouts as SBF does. Figuring out where exactly to anchor frame 2 onto frame 1 is a non-trivial problem. Not to mention how retarded your layout would look with 4 buff columns, and one column of debuffs sticking down from it =)

So, that's the rationale behind what I implemented. If you just funnel the buffs from frame 2 into frame 1, inheriting its layout - that solves a lot of problems from a coding perspective and keeps people from making aesthetic horrors.

I'm still thinking on how to tack frames together. I could do something like only allow that on single column layouts, but I really hate the idea of saying no. We'll see how it goes as I play with it.

Sticky is a poor choice of term on my part. When you make a frame (frame A) a sticky child of another (frame B) the buffs for frame A will appear in frame B, after the buffs that normally appear in frame B but are sorted according to the method you set for the parent frame. Any effects that get sent to a parent frame use the format of the frame you send them to. So, if you did this:

1) Create frame 3
2) Create filter 3:e (weapon enchants to frame 3)
3) Make frame 3 and 2 sticky children of frame 1 with the order in the list as Frame 3 then Frame 2

You'll see this in frame 1:

Buff1
Buff2
Buff3
...
BuffN
WeaponEnchant1
WeaponEnchant2
Debuff1
Debuff2
Debuff3
...
DebuffN

And all of those will be formatted (icon/bar/name/timer) as you have frame 1 set up.

This assumes you have enough spaces in Frame 1 to hold everything. When frame 1 fills, any extras will stay in their normal frame (which you can set to visibility never if it offends the feng shui of your UI layout)

With that, say you set:
- frame 1 to hold 20 buffs
- frame 2 to hold 10
- frame 3 to hold 2

- If you have 10 buffs, 2 weapon enchants, and 5 debuffs - everything will appear in frame 1 just fine.

- If you have 15 buffs, 2 weapon enchants, and 10 debuffs - only 3 debuffs will appear in frame 1, and 7 will spill into frame 2

if you have 12 buffs, 0 weapon enchants, and 11 debuffs - 8 debuffs will go into frame 1 and 3 debuffs will show in frame 2

That's one reason I upped the maximum number of buffs in a frame to 60, so you can sticky a bunch together and not usually have overflow.

The most common use of this will be for people who want a single column buff/debuff display. They'll just go and make frame 2 a child of frame 1 and get

Buff1
Buff2
Buff3
...
BuffN
Debuff1
Debuff2
Debuff3
...
DebuffN

That's actually the most common request I had was to let people do that. The fact that you can get really fancy with extra frames, filters and sticky children to have "strata" of buffs and debuffs in a single frame display is just icing. When I was testing, I made a column of 52 buffs up the left side of my screen and had 6 frames that were filtered into and then stickied into frame 1 so that I saw buffs in a column - but arranged exactly how I wanted them. It was pretty cool =)

Now I need to take all of that and put it on the SBF site. And come up with a better name for Sticky, since it's true that most people will think of sticking frames together first. Maybe just call them Child frames.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, frame #2 is a sticky-child of frame #1 - I did this hoping it would make the frames easier to line up. Is my thinking correct here, or does the sticky functionality do something totally different? I have to say, I didn't notice any kind of "bars lining up" stickiness.

Edit - I've relogged several times to see if that helps. I've noticed since the patch that many settings aren't taking effect until a reloadui or relog, for many different addons. Alas, it didn't work on this occasion.

Interesting, both of those filters work for me as you've put them below. Very strange. If you reload UI or relog, does it persist?

Edit: Mind you, debuffs are supposed to go into frame 2 by default. If they're going into frame 1... did you make frame 2 a sticky child of frame 1?

filters

Hi,

It's great to see SBF on track for 3.02. I have a few filtering issues though:

1) A simple 2:h filter is not working for me - debuffs are showing in frame #1.
2) I have created 3:n~fed|n~elixir|n~flask, however this is also not working (this one could be an error on my part; I am assuming more than 2 or statements can be used in a single filter).

I have e and d filters working fine.

It's nothing to do with BF, just something I forgot to take out prior to releasing. It'll be gone in beta 15 =)

Hi,

I have the following problem with SBF:
Everytime I leave combat the screen freezes like half a second or even less, but its still very annoying. This was not the case with a version before the "new native" BF support. (I think it was beta 11 or something) Then I upgraded to beta 13 and got the newest BF from curse and realized the short screenfeezes. I disables/activated SBF and BF in several combos and I found out that this is related to SBF. If I have SBF disabled the feezes will not occur. Upgrading to beta 14 and getting the newest BF havent solved this!

Has anybody else encountered this problem?

The sort order error is known. I'll be on it today.

Also the strata thing. Phanx - is the strata change constant or only after you've opened SBFOptions as Clavicle has encountered?

Yeah, that's why I specified that I was upgrading from beta 6 -- I didn't go read through all of the comments since beta 6. Good to hear it is a bug.

buff filter conditions

Hi Satrina! First of all, let me thank you for creating this amazing addon! I honestly won't survive without it.

I've gone thru the filters section on your website, but I can't seem to find a simple argument to enable filters to work on buffs that are about to expire. What I want to do is to do the common 3:r<10 (i.e. to have all expiring buffs appear in buff frame 3), but to add in the condition that the buffs should have at least a duration of longer than a minute. This is to filter all the short-duration buffs (i.e. hots, proc buffs like rampage, etc.). I understand that you have this function built-in for the expiration timers, but I can't seem to find a similar one to use for a certain buff frame. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again!
