Skada Chat Frame Integrator  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.5.1
by: Eternal_Lynx [More]

What's this
A simple addon to move Skada Damage Meter window to one of your Chat window.
Then you can toggle Skada window with chat tab and it looks like Skada been "integrated" into that chat window.

Many famous UI suites have this feature, but it seems there are no stand-alone versions (or maybe I didn't find it on google) so I made this.

Also available on Curse.

TL;DR Usage
Create a chat window called "Skada" and /scfi.

Usage

  1. Create chat windows you want Skada window to fit in.
  2. By default, the first Skada window will be embedded into "Skada" chat window, but there're more options now, see below.
  3. If this addon failed to embed Skada windows, use /skadacfi or /scfi to manually embed.
  4. When in doubt, /reload.

Advanced Usage
  1. You can manually embed a Skada window to any Chat window you want by using command: /scfi n x , where n is the number of Skada Window, x is the name of the chat window. For example, if you want to embed the second Skada window into Chat window called "Threat", use command /scfi 2 threat .
  2. The addon will automatically remember this operation and save it to a per-character settings file.
  3. After that you can use /scfi to embed all windows you previously done embedding.
  4. If you don't know the numbers of Skada Windows, use command "/scfi stat" to get them.
  5. If you want to reset all the settings you have done before, use command "/scfi reset" and addon will fall back to its default behaviors after a UI reload.

Available Commands
  • "/skadacfi" Equals to "/scfi".
  • /scfi : Manually embed all Skada windows configured to be embedded.
  • /scfi n x: Configure Skada window #n to embed into Chat frame "x". Only first time needed, addon will remember this, then you can use just /scfi to do all the work. (e.g. /scfi 2 threat)
  • /scfi stat: Show current Skada windows ID and Title.
  • /scfi reset: Reset this addon to its default behaviors: Only embed the first Skada window to Chat window called "Skada".
  • /scfi rm n: Manually release Skada window #n from chat window. But I recommend reset and re-integrate instead of this, because it will cause lua errors on incorrect #n and you will probably blame that on me.

Known Issues
  • This addon will automatically remove all chat messages from those chat windows Skada embedded in. This is a feature, not a bug.
  • Sometimes it will fail to embed on player login, because this addon loaded before Skada, or some lua error prevented it to run correctly. Simply /scfi to fix that.
  • Rarely it would have some issues with libWindow, whatever...
  • This is a very simple addon without any library, and it's based on hooking scripts, so if you /scfi too many times (like a thousand times or more maybe?) without reloading ui, you may encounter some performance loss. But who the hell would be bored enough do this?

P.s. If anything goes wrong just comment and I'll try to figure out why. Or revert to older but simpler versions.

v0.51
*TOC change to fit patch 7.20.

v0.5
*TOC change to fit patch 7.15.
*Slight modifications to make this addon more stable (no more global functions, only one global instance _G.SCFI).

v0.4c
*Only toc change to fit patch 7.03. You can just open skadacfi.toc and modify 60100 to 70000.

v0.4b
*Only toc change to fit patch 6.1. You can just open skadacfi.toc and modify 60000 to 60100.

v0.4a
*Fixed errors for first run or after changing chat frame name. (Addon itself still works under that condition.)
*Slash command "/scfi reset" will now force all Skada windows to unlock and unhidden after a UI reload.

v0.4
*Finally I got the APIs I want, now it will automatically remove all the chat messages from the selected chat windows.
*Added "/scfi rm n" command.

v0.3a
*Added some more error traps to prevent Lua error caused by mis-typed slash commands.

v0.3
*Now support multiple Skada windows.
*It may sounds easy but it's not that easy for me to code this...

v0.2
*No more ui reloads, just /skadacfi or /scfi.
*If successfully "integrated", skada window will move along with your chat window this time.
*If skada window refuse to do that above, use the slash commands again.

On the addon't description, you say:
Sometimes it will fail to embed on player login, because this addon loaded before Skada
This cannot happen if your addon sets Skada as a depency in its TOC file, as yours does.
Code:
## Dependencies: Skada
So... faulty description?

I did some digging and it is some conflict with Chatter. I tried disabling the chatter module that controls chat tab backgrounds but that wasn't it. It'd take too long to try each chatter module considering hearth is like 14 minutes so I figured I'd let you know.
Thanks for the info! It's caused by that background drawn on frame strata 'LOW' level 3 which is higher than Skada default frame level 0 so it'll cover Skada window.
You can fix this by modify Skada settings under Windows--Skada--Window--Strata, change 'LOW' to 'MEDIUM' or 'HIGH' or 'DIALOG'.
Thanks for getting back to me. I tried this out and now the opposite is happening; skada bars are covering up my chat instead of being the background.
Skada itself will check many things when player enters new zone (will have a loading screen), so if there's something making it think it should show itself, scfi currently can't do anything about this because it's not triggered by chat frames.

I'll try to fix this.
Thanks again! I will mess with skada settings too and see if I can find the cause and report back.

I don't think it's Chatter - I don't use any chat mods (other than scfi) and this happens to me all the time. I've just put up with it because I'm usually too busy to deal with it when it happens and then I forget.

It's been doing this since I installed it, before Legion dropped. (not sure exactly when, but certainly under a year, and likely under 6 months ago.)
