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!

-- I've tried several times to get button facade working with MBF but for some reason it doesn't want to cooperate. I think it has something to do with the way that Button facade skins things.

-- There are instructions included with the addon that describe how to add custom skins. I've left it very simple. The reason that the current skins look the way they do when sized down is because the textures themselves were never designed to be displayed so small. I'd make them myself but graphics really aren't my strong point.

Thank you for your previous reply.

I am still wondering about the skins though. Is it possible we could get some more options?

Or even better if button facade could skin the buttons as it does other addons like bartender.

I run the addon on the smallest scale possible so all but one skin you have available look all chopped up.

If none of those are possible a "no skin" would be just as great too, just the plain icons would match a lot of UI's.

If you want take a look at my UI and you can see how the skins don't really match with my overall look: Boda's UI

Thanks for your efforts.

I think the issue is in the image that blizz uses for the button. For some reason the size of the image doesn't match what the game reports it as. So I had to kinda go with what I could get on it. Yeah I've noticed the issue with the calendar button glow as well. I'll have to find out what layer it's on and then set things up to adjust that as well. I'll add it to the list of things to do.

Hey, I was wondering about a couple of small things. First is about the Blizz Calendar icon. With MBF it scales to the same size as the other icons, but the glow animation for a new event does not. I was wondering if it would either: Be possible to scale down the glow animation OR, have an option to scale that icon's size but not the other, that way players could make it the same size as the glow if they wanted, and if they didn't care than it would also be left small.

Second thing is, this is pretty minor, my 'tracking' icon is a pixel or two lower than all the rest of the icons, nudged down. I have seen some SS of your addon and this doesn't look to be a problem, just wanting to double check this is not something your addon is either doing (or something Blizz is doing that your addon could fix)? I have searched and searched the Lua from my minimap addon and can't seem to find what it could be.

The reason for it is to make sure all of the other addons have created their buttons before I do the first gather. Also seems to help things out on slower systems. I figured it was better to gather them all the first time rather than grab some then grab a few more. It's mostly a hold out from when I didn't have it doing active gathering. Then if I missed any buttons during that initial gather they wouldn't be gathered at all.

Yeah the Mobmap icon has some major issues with MBF for some reason so it's not captured. Enchantrix, as Deamon002 isn't captured due to it not being named. I did put in a change request with the authors but they seem to not think it's important. I'm not sure why the GuildCraft icon isn't gathered since I've never used that one before. I'm sure you tried to do a manual add and to try and add it to the exceptions, so it probably isn't named either. But I'll look into it.

Just wondering if we could get some more skins. I use the frame scaled down to its lowest point and the available skins are pretty chopped up.

Maybe just an icon without a border?

I'm also wondering why some buttons it collects ie: battlegrounds end up smaller than the rest?

Thanks in advance.

I've seen this a few times before. I have noticed that for whatever reason. The blizzard buttons seem to be created with size settings that are not the actual size of the button. Not sure how blizz did this but that's blizz for you. If it's a button other than a blizzard button then if you're running chinchilla check to make sure that the blip size is set to 100% or it adjusts the size of the buttons. Not sure why it does it.

I've been trying to get the blizzard buttons to be consistently the same size as all the others but it seems they get adjusted a little bit every once in a while. I'll check to see how far it's off this time.

I'm not doing anything to hide any of the buttons unless you have the box checked to hide it. The issue here is that another addon is hiding it. Happens all the time. There are a lot of addons out there that just hide the calendar button by default. Check your minimap addons and any addons that deal with the clock. They are usually the culprit.

As noted, MBF doesn't pick up Enchantrix' minimap button; this is because Enchantrix doesn't name it's button. This can be fixed by opening EnxMiniIcon.lua in the World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\Enchantrix directory and making the following change:

Find the line that reads: local miniIcon = CreateFrame("Button", "", Minimap);

Change this to: local miniIcon = CreateFrame("Button", "Enchantrix_MinimapButton", Minimap);

MBF should now be able to collect the button with no problem.

PS: presumably any name will do; this is what worked for me.

All other Blizz buttons appear to work just fine.

thanks, you where right, i was only looking in MBF to disable the broker icon, so i totally forgot to look the most obvious place
