Minimap Button Frame  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.1.10d
by: Bachlott [More]

This little addon will gather up all of your addon minimap buttons and put them into a movable frame.

Features

- Minimap Button Skinning (Square Minimap Buttons)
- Add or Remove almost any minimap button
- Multiple Sorting Options - Including Custom!
- Collection of Blizzard Buttons
- Collect only the buttons you want
- Background Color can be changed from the config screen
- Hide most of the Blizzard Minimap Icons
- LDB Support
- Key Bindings
- Profile Support
- Basic Localization in English, Spanish, French, German, Korean, Russian, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)

Future Features

- Full LDB version of MBF

Known Issues

Metamap minimap button is incompatable due to the way it is handled in the addon.

The addon does not grab button that do not have a name currently.

Currently discovered addons that are this way are:

Enchantrix (Part of Auctioneer Advanced)
onRaid

The Blizzard buttons that only show up under certain conditions, (battleground, LFG) will only display on the Frame when they are shown normally and active scanning is enabled. Otherwise they will apprear on the minimap when they are shown.

The Add feature is a little more powerful than I originally expected. So you can accidentally grab things that you didn't expect to be able to. (Other Addons) I've tried to protect the blizzard interface features and a couple other things, but let me know if you can grab something that you don't think you should be able to. If you do accidentally add something to the bag you can always remove it.

I've added a lot to the Localization, so it's another quick and dirty, horrible translation. Thanks again for the crazyness Google. So if you can do a better translation please help me out and submit it to me so I can add it to MBF. Hopefully Google didn't make them too funny or offensive.

Note:

The ability to add minimap icons to the table can be a general or partial name of the icons. The button override table add should be the exact name of the button that you want to override and collect.

As always your feedback is more than welcome!

@ nonameform: Yeah I've seen this happen before. There seems to be no way to consistently get it to happen. I've seen it happen with other addons as well so I think it's probably some bug in the blizzard code. But I haven't been able to do anything about it.


@ lewal: No that's not what is causing it. When the interface first loads all the addon buttons are in their normal location. Which is around the minimap. I put a 3 second delay into MBF so that it makes sure things are loaded before it tries to grab the buttons.

Strange behaviour indeed ;-)

Yeah I found it. The behavior is caused by the fact that I finally got MBF to actively scan for buttons even while it's not show. For those that hide MBF yet still want it to grab new buttons if they pop up. The world map was causing it to do this too. I just have to add another exception to keep it from gathering while the interface is hidden.

I've also noticed that I'm starting to get the addon action blocked message again. So I think I need to restore the whole no gathering during combat as well. But I'm going to do some more tests to make sure its MBF causing it before I make another change.
so is this what is causing mbf to have all your buttons around your mini map each time you log in for a breif 3 seconds, then they go into the tray ..this is very annoying.

Sometimes I have a very strange problem with MBF. I'm actually not sure how to reproduce it (maybe you need to hide/unhide panel a lot during one session), but at least will try to provide a description in case someone else had it too.

I keep hiding/unhiding MBF panel a lot, as there are some addons I want to check from time to time. On two occasions right-clicking MBF bar made the bar move lower on the screen and "MBF 3.0.X" text disappeared from it. Further clicking only moved bar lower, before it became completely nunclickable. That happened to me about a month ago, but my character was dead during that time, so I thought that might be a reason. To restore MBF bar position I had to use default settings and configure it again.

Second time it happened to me just several days ago, while my character was alive. I had to restore default settings and reconfigure addon again (relogging doesn't help).

If someone else has the same problem, please provide a list of addons you're using. Just in case it's some another addon messing MBF.

I'll look into it. It doesn't seem to be doing that on mine but I'll run a few more tests and see what I can figure out.

Hi Bachlott!

I really, really love your addon - but would it be possible for you to get rid of these old Ace2 dependencies?

Currently building a strictly lean interface. MBF is the only addon that still wants dewdrop, tablet, waterfall, etc. and therefore Ace2.

It costs me more than an extra megabyte and dewdrop/tablet eats away unnecessary cputime.

Regards,
Valy
MBF shouldn't be using any of those. I didn't put any Ace2 into it.

Maybe there's a similar solution for this situation like for the other world map glitch.

All the best,

What do you mean turn off your interface? Just hiding the interface or reloading the interface?
