/gpaper gui - Toggles the Interface options panel

Data Broker Support

Adding support for a data broker (LDB) laucher would be nice. Click to turn on graphpaper, click again to turn off.

Lightbulb Suggestion

First off, love this addon.

One addition I would suggest is an option to show/hide a blank texture that covers the entire screen and is at the lowest frame level possible. I use KGPanels for this and set the texture to white which contrasts with the black Graphpaper lines and makes it much easier to spot small mistakes. It can be difficult to see minor differences with the world in view because of the constantly changing contrast.

LDB Launcher

I was going to request that an LDB panel button launcher be added for quick click access to the grid and config panels of GraphPaper.

But then I decided it might be a decent starter project for me. So, if anyone is interested and wants a clicky button for GraphPaper, you may try out GraphPaper LDB found under the Optional Files tab here at the GraphPaper portal, or on it's own page here:

GraphPaper LDB

Surprisingly, it works on my system. I would be more than surprised if it worked on other people's systems.

I am working on a new ui and this definitely helped a ton. THANK YOU!

On a side note would you be up for a lib data broker plugin for gpaper or is there one already out there? (I haven't been able to find one yet)

Sorry about that. I forgot to trim the commas out after cutting and pasting but it should be fixed now.

Actually there's a Lua error with 1.3 apparently relating to localization. Here's the ~!Swatter log:

Code:
Date: 2009-03-09 19:51:44
ID: 1
Error occured in: Global
Count: 1
Message: ..\AddOns\GraphPaper\Locales\deDE.lua line 6:
   unexpected symbol near '='
Debug:
   [C]: ?
The same error occurs for each of the locales (Edited: Except for my locale - enUS), but I don't include each log entry as it's repetitive.

I tried wrapping each non-enUS block of translations with L={ ... } like we see it done in enUS.lua, but that created a different error. Removing the commas at the ends of each line of translation text eliminated the errors - but I have no way of checking whether or not that breaks the translations in some way. Deleting all the non-enUS also 'fixes' the issue, but that doesn't help the localization requirement too much.

It was /gp originally but there was a conflict with the addon GhostPulse so I changed it to /gpaper. I'll look into changing it so /gpaper toggles the grid on/off for ease of use.

EDIT:

To toggle the grid the slash command is now:
/gpaper

To open the options panel the slash command is now:
/gpaper config

First, thank you for this addon. I was using Align, but this one is so much more versatile.

There's one small suggestion I have.

I was wondering if you could add a /gp that would be the same as typing /graphpaper. Every time I want to show the lines I have to type "/graphpaper show" then "/graphpaper hide" but if you added the /gp that would be awesome!
