Prospector
Version: 9
by: kergoth [More]
A simple addon to display a button whenever you have a stack of 5
prospectable ore. Clicking this button prospects it. The button icon and tooltip show what ore will be prospected, and the number of times you can prospect is displayed as a count on the button.

When multiple types of prospectable ore are in your inventory, it will
prefer the ore with the highest prospecting skill requirement.

I found it beneficial to write this because a macro using /cast and /use will
break if you have any stacks of ore in your inventory which have less than 5.

Usage:
To Prospect: click on the button or use the keybind.
Alt-drag the button to move it.
If you'd rather prospect using a macro on your existing actionbars, you can use Prospector for that too. Simply type '/prospector hide', and then use '/click ProspectorButton' in your macro.
I recommend using an addon to fix prospect autolooting, such as
FastDisenchant , for true one button prospecting.
9:
- Fix the unintentional use of a global that should have been a local, may
have caused an error for some.
- Fix the ButtonFacade support.
8:
- Fix the /prospector hide option, it now takes effect immediately.
- Add support for ButtonFacade to skin the button.
7:
- Move the prospect count to a count on the button rather than the
tooltip, to see if people like it better.
- Simplify the way we do the keybinding.
- Use spell ids to avoid needing translated strings for Prospecting and
Jewelcrafting.
- Update readme, toc version, and the toc interface version for 2.4.
- Update embedded libraries.
- Kill myAddOns support.
6:
- Fix a bug introduced in v4 which would result in the button not doing
anything if the prospect spellcast failed, until the next bag update.
5:
- Add missing AceConsole-3.0 embed, and update the other embeds.
4:
- Fix bug where a quick click/keypress after the previous prospect but
before the bag scan finished would result in a cast targeting cursor.
3:
- Fix the prospect skill check when you have multiple types of ore.
- Switch the button to directly use attributes to target the right bag and
slot for the prospect, so it doesn't act up when the bank is open.
- Fix error seen when using alt-drag to move the button.
- Ensure that the keybind does nothing when there's nothing to prospect,
rather than still attempting to cast the spell, but lacking a target.
- Add myAddons support.
- Added a slash command. There's only one option currently, 'hide'.
- Many cleanups to the code, thanks Xinhuan.
2:
- Added ability to keybind the prospector button.
1:
- Initial Release.

One of the few little mods like this i'm using, nice one!

Anyway you can make it a /command as well so I can just add it to my current set of buttons?

Hmm, you could do that today in a macro with:
/click ProspectorButton

If you'd like, I'll add a configuration option to disable making the button visible, so you could just use that macro to do your prospecting.

That'd be great. Thanks!

since i updated to the newest version the button doesn't show up anymore. and none of the slash commands work when I try to use them.

I even tried reverting back to version 3, and it doesnt show anymore either... So maybe it's the new 2.3.3 patch?

I am having this same issue where none of the commands for Prospector are showing up. Are BTShrump and I the only ones experiencing this?

I'm not able to reproduce this. Try enabling showing lua errors in your interface options and see if it's erroring.

V8 leads to:

Prospector.lua:170: attempt to index global 'button' (a nil value).

V7 is still working fine...

2.4 Inscription

Will you be updating for 2.4, in particular the Milling ability from Inscription (works off of herbs)?

I hacked the current version to support it, but its rather crude.
