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!

I'll add an option to do that in the next version.

DropCount Button Not Adding

Hi,
The new version of DropCount has a minimap button, but it is not able to be captured by MBF. When I try to add it, I get a message that it is either protected or already added. Any idea if you can get this button to be able to be added?

Thanks,
BJR

For some reason, my buttons are no longer sized the same, some are very small circles others large. Tried deleting the saved variables, with no change.

Check your minimap addon. For some reason Chinchilla has an option to adjust the blip sizes. It seems to also adjust the size of the minimap buttons. I'm not sure if other minimap addons do anything similar.

Yep, that'll be the culprit. Thanks.

Yoor addon doesn't grab Mobmap icon (the big (M) icon, but Mobmap icon is freely moveable around. Not really the problem, just an attention.

Enchantrix and GuildCraft icons are also not grabbed succesfully.

Hi..

Nice Button Frame you made here..

i have this problem here, which i think is something with the "broker" bar i use to show guild members, gold, fps, lag etc etc..
but i cant seem to figure out how to remove the MBF icon which isnt collected. dont really need two of them on my screen though :-)

@kwn2k: Yeah it looks like it is displaying the broker plugin. There should be an option in the "broker" bar that you use to turn off or not to display the plugin. If there isn't just let me know what bar you're using and I'll see what I can do to get the two working together.

Re: Blizzard Calendar Icon Keeps Disappearing

All other Blizz buttons appear to work just fine.
Same here I'm trying to narrow it down as to what is causing it myself. Also my mail icon when I have mail is 4-5 pixels down. Anyone else have this problem?

Skins

First off love the addon thanks for the work, if I wasn't so broke like most of the blue collar stiffs Id donate

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.

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.

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.

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.
