Minimap Button Frame  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.1.10c
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!

Mobmap - Button doesn't get added. Fixed by changing under the Mobmap.xml file the buttons parent from UIParent to Minimap. (MobMapMinimapButtonFrame)
Yeah this is one of the rare addons that use a parent of UIParent. If you really want to get technical, it isn't a "minimap" button. But when the add / remove is finished you'll be able to grab these without messing with it's code.



Trinity 2.0 - Doesn't work right. Appears to fall behind your plugin after you use it. You can recreate this problem by Shift+Left Clicking the button (one of the ways it happens). When you click it 3 new buttons appear around the Trinity button. This allows you to enter Trinity's Button config mode.
I'll look into this and see what's causing it.



Some suggestions:

Allow the user to re-arrange the buttons.
Ability to remove certain buttons. Like the Blizz Tracking button. I would like to have it elsewhere.
Can you make it so your minimap button is collected too
Being able to re-arrange the buttons is coming in the future. Got a few other things to finish up on first.

Like Remove! Which will be working in the next version. - Almost done!

My minimap button can be turned off in the configuration screen. Then you can access the configuration with /mbf config

Just downloaded. Been looking for something like this. Works great except or a few buttons I have.

Thanks for the great add-on.

Kyrianna - Right now if the Blizzard Button is not visible the addon won't grab it.

I'm thinking that I could grab them even if they are not visible.
The only issue I've run into with it is that until they are made visible by the UI, you would have a blank place in the frame.

I'm not sure how to handle that so it doesn't just look blank.

I might have it gather the blizz buttons first.

But if you run a scan with /mbf scan whenever the button is visible it will grab it for you.
Well at least for that session. I don't keep track of what buttons you've collected between sessions.

I'll check the minimap button issue real fast and toss up what I currently have fixed.

Is it a specific Nurfed addon or the entire thing?

Add / remove keeps getting pushed back to fix incompatibilities but it is on it's way.

Version 0.9d will is posted.

Thank you to everyone who has found incompatibilities and requested features. It really helps me out and makes the mod better.

*edit: Removed all the 0.9d version info since it's up top now.

@ Daxx: Tried that when I first saw this addon here. DMBS seemed to override it and none of the minimap buttons were populating the frame.

@ Bach: Thank you very much for working on incorporating this. Will be eagerly awaiting the next version. =)

Yeah support for the blizzard buttons is no problem. I'll have that working in the next version as well.

Why not use both? I do. They don't seem to have any conflicts and neither take up much memory.

But I also admit that would be nice although i like being able to put the mail icon anywhere. Since I have 7 toons i play and their ui's are all different I like being able to place it in a nice spot where i can see it all the time.

That's strange. It's definately not intended. And it doesn't seem to be doing that for me. What other minimap and minimap button addons are you using? Maybe it's a conflict with one of them.

suggestions: some have already been made but i'll say it too, i agree with srcwiz about selecting which buttons go in the frame, maybe make an option to color the frame in case we did want to show the buttons, to look better with w/e wild background we have like skinner, a gradient effect would be cool but not totally necessary and maybe an autohide until mouseover. besides that i like the concept, keep up the good work. More functions make it fun to play with.

Yeah the ability to select which buttons are in the frame is coming. It's always been planned but I just haven't completed it yet.

Frame color sounds good too. I'll add that to the list of things to do after I get the add / remove stuff working..

Sorry it was late and I didn't have time to put in the tooltip.

Left click simply hides or shows the minimap.

Right click and drag allows you to drag the button to anywhere on the UI.

Middle click brings up the configuration screen.


Also I'm not entirely happy with the way that works atm so I was debating changing the drag to something like <Shift> <Right Click> and drag

For the choice of the buttons on the frame I'm still working on that particular bit of functionality. I hadn't quite decided how I wanted that to be handled yet.

But a separate screen that listed all the buttons and allowed you to change the order and choose what buttons to include and what buttons to keep separate would work quite nicely.

Hopefully it won't end up too bloated.

Just noticed I should probably update my screenshots.

Too bad Wow is down atm.

Nice addon.

got some suggestions for the author though,

hmm, wouldn't it be great if we could rearrange the position of the minimap buttons
within the frame.

Also, I use trinity2bar, and the trinity2bar would spring out 5 small config buttons
when clicked. And it kind of looks very crowdedly.

Is there a way to let user customize that? for example, showing a list of minimap buttons that are collected in the frame, and let users select or deselect which minimap buttons they'd rather it stays out of the frame.

I try clicking the frame's minimap button, but it would only
show or hide the frame, instead of displaying a config menu.

thanks for this excellent works, please keep up the good work
