oUF Spark
Version: r57
by: ganders [More]
I suggest you use Snago's oUF_PowerSpark. It's better well written and the author actually knows what he's doing =P

Adds a spark to Rogues' and Druids' energy bar on oUF unit frames showing time remaining until next energy tick.

How to use:
Put this anywhere in the main function in your layout.
Code:
local spark = pp:CreateTexture(nil, "OVERLAY")
spark:SetTexture"Interface\\CastingBar\\UI-CastingBar-Spark"
spark:SetBlendMode"ADD"
spark:SetVertexColor(1, 1, 0)
spark:SetHeight(pp:GetHeight())
spark:SetWidth(pp:GetHeight() * 4)
self.Spark = spark
You can use any texture you want, however that is the normal "spark" texture.

Obviously, the height and width is changable, as is the blend mode if you'd like.

If you want to make the spark go across the health bar you'd use hp:CreateTexture instead of pp:CreateTexture, and if you wanted it to go across the entire unit frame you'd use self:CreateTexture.

The spark will sync with your energy tick timer the first time you get an energy tick. This shouldn't be a problem when you're first logging in or zoning, but if you Reload your UI it could be a little off at first.


Other layouts and files:

oUF_P3lim
oUF_Ligherfluid
oUF_Kosken
oUF_Lily
oUF_DispelColor
oUF_TsoHG
oUF_CombatText
oUF_PowerSpark
oUF_Banzai + LibBanzai-2.0
oUF
Optional Files (0)

Ok I updated the version on my SVN to re-show the spark as P3lim told me, and it also will check to make sure that the object is your player frame before it sets the Update script, so you can put it anywhere in the main chunk and it should still only work on your playaer frame.

I should probably put that on the main page =P

I put it on the wiki, but not on here. DOH!


Thanks for the tip P3lim

change this:
Code:
	if UnitPowerType"player" ~= 3 then
		spark:Hide()
	end
to this:
Code:
	if UnitPowerType"player" ~= 3 then
		spark:Hide()
	else
		spark:Show()
	end

Awesome plugin btw ^^
Ya I noticed that too, and fixed it on my SVN, just too lazy to upload a change that tiny to WoWI

That's what I used and people were saying they were getting errors. o.O

Anyway, it's changed now so it should work with any layout. You just have to add it in yourself.

So, short answer, no. There's really no way for me to fix this unless every oUF layout used a uniform structure. You'll have to change it yourself to work with your layout (which shouldn't be too hard).

Hopefully Ammo or someone else will write a better working version of this.

Got a fix for this?

Hm, that might explain why I was getting
Code:
"Interface\\AddOns\\oUF_Spark\\core.lua:10: attempt to index field 'player' (a nil value)",
when looking at starlon's layout. I'm not sure what he did with his powerbars, but of all the oUF layouts that I've been looking at, it was the only one I was getting that error in. (I took starlon's custom oUF master out of the mix, so it wasn't that) But I noticed in Spark, that it appeared it was parented to the powerbar, so figured something wasn't playing well there. But maybe I read it wrong.

I noticed it was off until the 2nd tick hit in

But try taking the width from the bg instead, i think that will work

I can easily see by reading the code that you found alot of it from the addon RogueFocus.

Thing is, that addon has a parent that is stuck, a frame.

Tip: Take the width size from the background of the powerbar instead of the powerbar itself, that way it shouldnt look buggy.

also, add this to the updater:
Code:
if select(2, UnitClass("player")) == "DRUID" then
	if UnitPowerType("player") ~= 3 then
		spark:Hide()
	else
		spark:Show()
	end
end
that way the ticker only shows when theres a energy bar

also make the ticker hide when full energy:
Code:
if energy == 100 then
	spark:Hide()
else
	spark:Show()
end
