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

SBF 3.2 with clickable buffs

Version 3.1.8
* Fixed an error where size limited frames get the wrong buffs
* Some small fixes for ButtonFacade. Some skins will still not get border colours. I've sent a message to StormFX to see if there's something I am missing or if it's just an inconsistency with some BF skins
* Added the ability for users to add custom sounds for expiry warnings. See SatrinaBuffFrame/Media/SBFSounds.lua for directions
* When changing SBF profiles, the list of frames shown in ButtonFacade setup will update correctly

Version 3.1.7

* You can now reset the profile for the current character by using /sbf reset

Version 3.1.5

* SBF will no longer allow you to try and flow buffs for different units. (There's no way to make that work without a major code revamp)

* ha filters should behave a little bit better now
* Vehicle buff frames will update and clear when you exit a vehicle
* Hopefully (hopefully!) the overextending bar thing is gone finally.

* Added vehicle to the list of units for buff frames on the general tab

Version 3.1.0
* Filters now work completely for any unit
* In addition to assigning a unit to each frame, each frame is designated as holding buffs or debuffs, and is designated as a whitelist or a blacklist

* Filters now work with the whitelist or blacklist setting for the frame

first of all really nice addon ! i love it ! THX

second: RC2.1 errors.. millions of these :

..Addons..SatrinaBuffFrame..SatrinaBuffFrame.lua: in line 1364 - 1384: attempt to index global 'buff' (a nil value)

they occur when i select some form of Sorting via choicebox in tab 'Layout (Frame1)'.. aka 'Time Ascending', 'Name Descending' etc. - other then 'None' for any bar that has buffs in it. On any Char of mine, also independent of other addons. If i leave it on 'None' everything else works fine(almost).

third: RC2.1 error.. (its one example ..there are more)

..Addons..SatrinaBuffFrame..SatrinaBuffFrame.lua: 1847: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'duration' (a nil value)

occurs when i use an arithmetic filter like 3 : D <1 (freakin smilies )
yet 3:R<1 works fine

and finaly i have a question:
why a database of all buffs and spells? those nice filteroptions do the trick just fine... me thinks .. or not? i hope you are not considering to get rid of the arithmetic filters and do a database spell goes here or there choice filter ... ! really like the arithmetic filters !

have a nice day

RC3 is up. It's been very stable for me for the past week while questing and raiding as warrior/mage/warlock, so hopefully it won't blow up the moment you all start playing with it

Things I'm really looking for in testing:

1) Shaman. Specifically enhancement shaman, who for some reason seem to give this thing a real workout. My roommante nailed down a bunch of errors that I have fixed, but if someone has an enhance shaman and can give it a more testing, I'd appreciate it.

2) Another thing I'd really like to nail down is temporary item enchantment names (wizard oil, sharpening stones, etc.) The basic problem is that there is no way to ask WoW what the name of the temporary enchantment on your weapon is (I've asked for them to put in a way to ask for this, hopefully they'll give it to me). What I have to do is create a tooltip for the item, then examine each line in the tooltip until I find it. The problem I'm having is that sometimes when I set the item in the tooltip, WoW comes back and says the tooltip has no lines to read. You will recognise when it happens because your temp enchants will suddenly be named "Temp Enchant 16" and "Temp Enchant 17". You can help by posting here with what was going on when this happened to you. I had originally thought it happened when you zoned into an instance, but that doesn't seem to be it, at least not consistently.

D-Fens: Glad you like the addon! =)
Filters are indeed cool, but not everyone needs them or wants to learn them. In any case, the spell list is used for other things. For example, there is no way to ask what the full duration of a buff is, so SBF needs to keep track of it for the d/D filter (so filters do use it), as well as for expiration warnings. I've actually asked for the ability to ask WoW for a buff's duration so that I don't need to keep track of it myself. Hopefully they'll add it.

Also, the bug you encountered with d/D filters is still around. It will be fixed with RC4, hopefully tomorrow (well, later today!)

RC4 is up! It fixes the d/D filter, and introduces the group status filter command.
Edit: Oh, and I moved the checkbox for auras showing as maximum time to the global tab.

Yeah, i need to make a good screenshot at some point. A few samples:

Hi, love the frames. Fantastic and exactly what I was looking for to replace Elkano's Buff bars.
Anyhow, I thought I'd submit this error I get.

When in the "Global Options" tabs. I click the "Copy Profile" drop down and this occurs....

[2007/12/13 17:52:02-159-x4]: SBFOptions-2.7\ScrollingDropDown.lua:116: attempt to get length of field 'items' (a nil value)
SBFOptions-2.7\ScrollingDropDown.lua:42: in function `Open'
<string>:"*:OnClick":1: in function <[string "*:OnClick"]:1>

And I got this after I resized the length of the bars and then tried to drag SBF1 to a new location since the bars had gone off-screen (I was making them a little longer).

[2007/12/13 18:29:03-159-x1]: SatrinaBuffFrame\SatrinaBuffFrame.lua:883: attempt to index field 'strings' (a nil value)

Thanks for the great mod.

Any chance of Parrot support for this? I prefer Parrot now over MSBT and SCT.

Thank you

Odd, Parrot should work just fine with it. I'll double check that for RC5

Wiky: As near as I can tell, the error you got was an SCT error unrelated to SBF. I can't reproduce it with the latest version of SCT, in any case. If you have any special settings you use, let me know so I can try to reproduce your problem.

Syxx: SBF seems to work fine with the latest version of Parrot still.

btw.i'm not sure what i did,today i can't open sbf option panel,error:

[2007/12/19 16:30:04-896-x1]:
SatrinaBuffFrame\SatrinaBuffFrame.lua:2116: Usage: GetPlayerBuff(index [, "filter"])

edit:i think i found the reason,there is a filter:

4: (t~elixir|n~Flask|n~elixir|n~Shattrath|n~Protection)&n!~Ward&n!~Shadow Protection&n!~Prayer

ps:n~Protection ,n!~Ward,n!~Shadow Protection,n!~Prayer ,i just translate from chinese,
the reason for this part is ,buff of Shadow Protection Potion and Shadow Protection or Prayer have same name here.

this filter works in 2.7.x. satrina ,could u tell me why it can't work now.

edit2:finally i found the real reason: commands "t" ,it can't be used in 2.8,or when u reload ui,restart wow,then u can't open sbf option panel.

Fixed that for RC6. Thanks, Wiky

Syxx, did you ever get messages in Parrot working? If not, could you let me know any special settings you're using, so that I can try to reproduce?
