nUI : InfoPanel [GuildChat]  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.2.17688
by: Xrystal [More]


This InfoPanel Plugin allows the user to have their guild related chat in a separate screen accessible as required. This one is using panel 15. Where identifiable it will use the last chat frame it used in an earlier game session otherwise it will use another window.

Tested Environments
nUI+ 5.07.42 with WOW 5.4.2

Slash Commands
Slash commands listed below will disable the plugin ready for removal of the addon. You can re-enable it again if you change your mind before logging out.

/nuigc enable - to enable it
/nuigc disable - to disable it

Localisations Available
enUS - US English
enGB - UK English
deDE - Deutsche ( German ) - Sanasi
esES - Espanol ( Spanish ) - jsr1976

If you wish to add your localization please post a copy of your translation with the localization code you use and I will endeavor to include it at the earliest convenience.

Known Caveats

You are limited to 10 chatframe windows ( including the combat log ) and thus it is suggested that when you first decide to use this addon that you see if there are some chat frames no longer required that can be removed.

Well, had a look through the Chat Frames again in the blizzard files and even though they have made some changes since the last time I looked they still haven't made it so that you can fully use the Dock Manager system properly. Some of the functions ( of course the necessary large ones ) are still hardcoded to use the default dock manager and not one you supply which means short of customising at least half of blizzards chat frame functions what this addon does is about the best I can do at present.

There is no customization on the font side of nUI, you would have to adjust your copy of your localization file in the nUI/main folder and change which fonts you want to use as font1 and font2. Just in case you weren't aware, the new support forums for nUI itself are on the nuiaddon.com website.

Hmm, I'm not sure why the dualstats plugin not running would cause the chat frame to stop working. The number of infopanels aren't limited, only the number of chat frames the game can use. Although I will investigate to see if the temporary chat frame option has been improved since I last looked at it as an option for my chat frame plugins. That seems to have a near limitless usage from what I could see with using it on separating friend chats.

Omen and Recount should by default be in separate infopanel frames unless you have the dualstats plugin or stats plugin installed which merge them into one infopanel frame.

Go through your chat frames on the left chat frame block and close down those you don't need, the ones with the name Chat on them are probably old carryovers from old uses of using a chat frame for an infopanel and can probably be closed down. Give that a go and turn off the stats plugins and see if the infopanels are now working the way you want.

Alright, so we are getting somewhere. I do see this message: "Couldn't create frame for nUI_InfoPanel_GuildChat. There were 10 frames in use out of the 10 available. Try closing a frame you no longer need for this addon to use and restarting the UI or the game."

I had stopped using the Merged infoPanel addon because I wanted to be able to see Recount while in combat as well and the Dualstat split version wasn't to my liking. But to test, I just readded the Dualstat and it does fix it. I am wondering is there a way to turn off the Map panel in the bottom right, so that I can got back to having my recount and omen separated?

Also, sorry if this is a silly question, but is the overall font for nUI changeable? Before I reloaded everything, I thought I had a thicker, "easier for me to read" font. Like the character name and percentages?

I do genuinely appreciate all your help! Thank you!

Hmm,

The reason why there hasn't been any actual work on these addons is because blizzard hasn't changed the way the chat frames work to affect them.

I use this all the time and have had no problems. But I have not re-installed the game in like forever so let me reset my WTF file for this addon and see if I get the same effect as you.

However, what other addons do you have running as it might just be the case that it isn't getting a chance to set mine up if another addon stops the UI from loading part way through. Have you tried with just nUI and guildchat ? Is it the latest nUI you are using ? Granted I am not using the absolute latest nUI5 version but I am using the one before the latest.

Hmm, actually, re-reading what you are saying it sounds like it may have run out of chat windows to use if it has several on the general chat side. Next time you log in have a look through your normal chat frame and see if there is a message about having too many chat frames open to generate a custom one.

Those frames only happen if any of my chat addon's are not running, as it doesn't uncreate the frames but simply attach them to the general chat frame dock. you can only have 10 frames and if they already exist when the guild chat or my other chat frames plugins running they cannot create/use the one they need to.

edit: Actually there is no longer a guild chat wtf file to clear out. The addon simply goes through and locates the first chat frame that isn't in use and generates it. It looks like you may have too many for some reason, as my addon's front page says, have a look and clear out any chat frames you do not need and it will use one of those the next time you log in ( or perhaps reloadui but can't recall if that works on reloadUI ). Just double checked it again now and it works perfectly fine as expected, but then I only have 3 chat frames tied to the general dock, 1 combat chat frame and my 3 chat frame plugins so still under 10 chat frames so it has no problem choosing one of them.

It looks like it has been a bit since work was done on this addon, which used to be one of my favorite parts of nUI+. I have completely reinstalled the game with fresh set of addon downloads, and I still can not get the addon to work. It seems like the info panel doesn't load the guild option for the infopanel button (Map/Recount/Combat), so my guild chat window just random loads 1-7 times on top of my general chat window on the left. Any idea of a fix?

Well I can't see anything they have changed in 5.4 being related to when and how you position the chat frames but I did notice that it only goes crazy like that when you first log in ( and possibly reload ) with one of the chat frames / combat log on display in the infopanel. So for the moment simply making sure something like the map is displayed in the infopanel when you log out you should be fine while I figure out how to fix it.

Had a quick look to see what happens when the frame is attached to the infopanel and there doesn't seem to be anything happening different to when it works as to when it doesn't work. But where there have been no changes with the infopanel or chat frames in a long while and it has only just started happening with 5.4 I can only surmise that something they have done somewhere is affecting the chatframes but it isn't in the blizzard chat frame lua code that I can see.

I'm suspecting they changed something with how the chat frames are worked with in 5.4 as I never saw this problem before but am seeing it on a couple of my toons but not others unless its just the first time you log in with them that's a problem and fixes itself once the frame is repositioned.

I actually thought it had been fixed by blizz or fixed itself somehow when I didn't see it happen for ages, until I noticed it on my druid again today then remembered I hadn't got round to fixing the frame into place on here, but just minimised the chat frame so as not to disturb my game play rofl .

But have reset them now so will see what the situation is tomorrow with all the girls but if that is the case then it does sound like its a change in how the windows are created by blizz and when I can generate mine and when the infopanels can be built to reflect that change and make them all work again.

I'm having the same problem. Mine's happening with no combat at all. I've moved the window to the infopanel and it actually moved it back to the minimap when I reloaded my UI. For a few of my characters I use the Chat infopanel instead and it happens with that as well.

Hmm, I'll keep an eye out and see if I can track it.

Perhaps it is linked to logging in and being in combat immediately perhaps ? or is it happening when no combat situation is happening at all ? Also, does a reload of the UI fix it or does it keep happening regardless ?

guild chat doesn't stay locked in right window

Hi Xrystal, with the Orgrimmar patch the guildchat window doesn't stay locked in it's right place anymore. Every login it's back on top of the minimap in bottom center of screen. It's not generating any errors for me though. (NUI 5+ is updated for new patch, 5.07.37+)

p.s. I disabled guildchat and now the combat log, is doing it. So it's probably not a problem with the guildchat, but maybe the infopanel itself?

Oh I see what you are trying to do.

You need to use the regular Chat plugin to utilise all those messages at the same time.

GuildChat is hardcoded to reset to only receive guild related messages.
Whispers is hardcoded to reset to only receive personal messages such as whispers and battlenet messages.
Chat is coded to save your settings so that you can choose what messages display in its right hand window.

So try nUI : Infopanel [Chat] and set it up with the message types you want to recieve and the settings should stay active between sessions.

Hmm, I've not noticed it not working on my end. Please do let me know what you end up doing.

It used to work with earlier version of code.

ANy hints ?

Thanks and Regards
Just found out there is 2 locations for this.

One within "local function nUI_InfoPanel_GuildChat_OnEvent", the other within "plugin.setEnabled = function( enabled )".

Will add in both and check results

Guild Events now showing in Calendar as of 3.01.01 version.

Finally tracked down what out of the many changes I made in my rewrite that caused the problem.
