Broker LootType  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.2.1
by: lloydbates [More]
What is it, short answer:
Broker LootType displays information about the current loot method, the quality threshold and provides access to changing both.

What is it, not so short answer:
Broker LootType is a small addon that uses LibDataBroker, a library developed to allow display independent access to information and functions.

The information provided by Broker LootType are:
  • What is the current loot method. If you are in a group or a raid, it will display the mode, in example: "Free for all".
    If you are solo, it will just display "Inactive".
  • What is the current loot threshold. Besides the method, there is also a switch to change the quality at which the method will trigger.
    This is shown as a colorcode, the same as the item quality color.
    Example: Purple for epic items.
  • A tooltip on mouse over, that displays the same information. Additional if the loot method is set to master looter, it will display the name of that character.
The functions provided by Broker LootType are accessed by simply right clicking it in your display addon.
A menu is then shown where you change the loot method and the threshold.
Be aware that this only works while grouped and if you have the appropriate rights to change these settings.

As with other LibDataBroker Plugins, you have to have a special display addon installed or it won't show up at all.
Examples for a display addon are:
Fortress
ButtonBin
Carousel
TitanPanel
NinjaPanel

And i probably missed a few.

Credits:
Broker LootType was inspired by LootTypeFu by Roartindon/Silvermoon.
I recently switched from FuBar to a LibDataBroker display addon but missed the LootTypeFu, therefore i wrote my own plugin.

The Addon is setup this way, that you become the loot master.
I uploaded a fixed version that works for me, sorry for the bug. Never used that one feature ;-)

Thank you.
Maybe you should take a look at BrokerGroup by Tristanian which should be what you are looking for.

Thanks for the suggestion, I also added type = "data source" definiton to the dataobj.
Based on http://github.com/tekkub/libdatabrok...specifications it is required to do so.
Please let me know if this causes problems.

Icon

Good job, suggest you change your icon path to:

Interface\\Buttons\\UI-GroupLoot-Dice-Up

So you no longer have to distribute the FuBar_LootTypeFu tga with your addon
