Status Window 2  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2..2.0
by: Satrina [More]
Well, it's that time
I haven't actually played WoW in over a year at this point, except for some time put in for Cataclysm since it launched. I had figured that Cataclysm would rekindle the fire, but it just has not. I am done with MMO games.

As I noted on the SBF page, given the other demands on my time these days, and without actually playing the game, it's really hard to justify allocating time to maintaining addons.

What's to become of StatusWindow? I release it to the public domain. It's not the simplest code in the world, and I would honestly rewrite it from scratch if I still played. That said, if you want to take it and run with it, fill your boots
Version 2.2.0
- You should not get errors opening the backpack anymore
- Some small tweaks and additions (alpha for backdrops and borders works correctly now!)

About the breaking in modules: Please don't do that. You could allow plugins, but leave the core as it is now. It's light, works, has those modules, and I feel this is close to perfect. Of course there are always little things and stuff like that, but the core is perfect IMHO. Please don't split it up.

Quoting Flarin:
1. Clicking Guild or Friends would be nice if that opened the social panel
2. the friends display - displaying the level would be nice
3. the guild list- not sure on this one - i understand the direction you took because the list could be huge. Would like to see level, class, guild rank, guild note (all with options to view/not view)
The click may be handy, not sure, but preferably with a toggle so it doesn't click while in combat (I've done weird things that way :P)
I totally second the third request, about the second, doesn't it show level? But perhaps show level and location, each with a toggle as well.

I agree about the core modules being included. Most people get StatusWindow because it provides commonly-desired things, so there's no sense in breaking that part up.

Let me know what you all think of how the friends and guild modules work now. I'll admit that over the past week I have become very used to using them! I did get a Lua error on the guild module a few times. I think I fixed it, but let me know if you get it. If you do, just close the error box and all should be well.

Next on the list is customised options for a few of the modules, such as the click to open the friend/guild socials tab, probably sort order for their lists. Right now only clock and item count use something other than the generic configuration panel for the generic window frame. I will add the ability to show the generic panel as well as a custom panel for the module.

Just testing it but i love it!!! The modules works fine here and i like very much the option to set windows with the modules i like together :P

Things that can be improved under my point of view:
- can i show the bag slots left instead of the used?
- can i show the amount of experience instead of only a percent? In that way it should be useful to show the rested experience too. The char level is not as important for me as the total experience gained/needed, so i think that it should be a good idea to make it selectable.
- also would be nice to change the text color of the modules....
- im wainting for the border options... would be nice to organize the windows like in two rows

Thank you for the hard work..

Well, I have 3 windows, 1 for Friends, Guild, something else LOL, 1 for XP, Durability and money and then one with memory, latency, clock and fps.

The social module as I call it, is on top of the dura window in the center of my bottom bar (I have a viewport enabled, this creates a small bottom black bar), the stats window is on my bottom right.

Now @ Satrina:
I seem to have one minor issue, which could be due to the location of the memory module (bottom right) but the tooltip appears left (middle) so I can't shiftclick on the actual tooltip or scroll it. I tried without tooltip addon, with Cirk's Mousetip and Cowtip, all give the same result.

I knew someone would eventually ask about windows with more than one row with a single border around all. It will come along at some point, yep.

I think I had a flash of awesome for things like bag slots left vs. bag slots used and the like. Will take some time to flesh it out.

Moonwitch: Did you really mean the memory module? Its tooltip is not interactive in any way

I thought it said something about shift click for garbage collect.. But - I checked everything, and it seems to be ok now. Must have been an issue on my end >.< Sorry.

I would love to see mail in the list of modules, but with blizzards lovely 10,000,000 mail events being fired even before you get mail, I suspect it's next to impossible to get it right.

It does indeed say "click to collect garbage". It should probably say "click the frame to collect garbage" or something similar and more clear.

Mail is on the list to look at for sure

How is this any different than just using FuBar and the associated modules? Is it just a clone offering?

That was my issue, I couldn't force a GC :P Not sure if I can now.

@ Tokran, it's not a clone. Fubar offers a LOT more than what this has, it's also a lot heavier. You can't really compare both to be honest. Fubar is what Fubar is, it is a plugin system. This offers a quick glance at several things.

The original StatusWindow also predates FuBar by about a year.
