nUI : Config [LDB]  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.2.0.16733.01
by: Xrystal [More]

This addon was setup so that people that do not use fubar or the gui can use it with their favorite broker display bar.

nUI will at some point have its own built in GUI options screen but in the interim you have a few options to help with the slash command option settings. There are 2 GUI addons and a fubar one in the works but now I am adding this one for the Titan and Broker Display people out there.

Localization:
Currently only enUS and enGB localizations available.

How it works:
After selecting the slash command in the menu the addon generates the slash command and sends it to nUIs slash command handler (in a similar way to nUI GUI addon does it).
This way if nUI changes the way it executes those commands but keeps the same function/values it will not break this addon. It can also be set up as a right side icon only option or as a full text display which will show the current version of nUI installed as text.

What is Included:
All Slash Commands ( I believe ) available in nUI 5.07.29.

Tested With :
DockingStation
ChocolateBar
Fortress
NinjaPanel
StatBlockCore
TitanPanel

Noticed Glitches :
Whilst all these display the plugin with varying nicety, some of the value lists do not display correctly all the time. However, it isn't consistent with ChocolateBar display 13 of the 20 items at one point to all 20 another time.

Due to what I suspect is the hacked background naming of the invisiskin the viewport toggle has to be done twice to get the effect you need.

ToDo:
1. Figure out the floating point issue. --DONE--
2. Change display text from slash command text to descriptive text. --DONE--
3. Figure out how to display the description for each command as a tooltip.
4. Change Right Click option on menu to call nUI GUI addon if it is installed.
5. Recode to fit normal addon format ( my normal format that is ).

Rofl, glad you like it... I sneak these little things in now and then. Sometimes in response to a forum request or because I find it useful myself.

What do you mean it's not working?

Unless the menu system has changed it should still work as the nUI slash commands haven't changed. I'll take a look tomorrow briefly while levelling to see whats up. I apologise but I assumed it was working as normaly, guess I should not have assumed.


Edit: Ah, it works still, just tick the load out of date box to get it to load. It works otherwise. Seems silly to an update just for a TOC version change. If you're that concerned you can change it easily yourself by loading the toc file into notepad and change it to 50001.

I will slowly update these addons but if I am going to need to rewrite anyway for version 6 I am holding off for now.

I am sure many of you will have noticed some of the menus are having parts of it disabled. Namely the long lists of values. Yesterday I found out the reason and its due to a limitation within the UIDropDownMenu control set up. The fix will be to limit how many appear in each drop down menu but at present I am unsure how to go about this with such a wide range of values to choose only say 8 from to display.

I have also found out how to make simpler menus without the need to use Ace and once I have expanded that knowledge further I will look into rebuilding this addon with the new knowledge I have gained and taking into account the blizzard menu limitation.

EG.
Values between -1000 to +1000 would normally mean at least 10 or even more options listed which will mean quite a few would be disabled. So perhaps this will be broken down to say 2 or 3 menus with a breakdown of values. Menu1 ( -1000 to -500 <5 items> ), Menu 2 ( -500 to +500 <5 items> ), Menu 3 ( +500 to +1000 <5 items> ). Not perfect but at least all the options will be there.

Once I am ready to start work on this I will update here again.

Before people ask, yes I will be updating this to 3.3 compatibility. In time... first thing to do is to check and make sure I have all the slash commands set up. I probably have a few to add so will do all the changes together. May take a while as I may also do some tidying up of code. Who knows *shrugs*

Also, if you have been tracking the nUI forums you will find that the developer is working on making the Layout Editor more user friendly but even in its current state it isn't too hard to move things around. If you take a look at the mage portal plugin I made you can see one of my more recent art changes. If you type /nui movers you can see straight off the bat what items are movable without code changes. Others you can access via the Layouts\Default folder and looking in the relevent hud setup that you use.

There you should find a dashboard file that denotes the bottom section and the console file which handles the elements like the micro menu and latency and framerate bars and then a few folders that further break down which unit frames you want to change the look of although I have not found the need to change those so have no idea what the limits and extents there are.

I'm not sure whether any other background art addon will work with nUI as the panel itself is not just art but framework for the chat window and info panels etc.

The best place to ask for more information on how to do things like this is the nUI forum themselves and we are generally a nice bunch. If its not possible due to how nUI works then Scott will be able to tell you if not many of the other regulars there.

Sorry, I can't really help you there much myself as I cannot for the life of me do custom artwork. I leave that to others to do and I just use them and use /nui movers to position the elements that can be moved or edit the layout files to resize the main action buttons to be more noticeably bigger.

But there is an art folder in the layout folder that contains tons of blp files of which 5 (similarly named ones) refer to the dashboard at the bottom of the screen.

Even before I found nUI I never used custom artwork and just positioned addons at the bottom of the screen. Pretty much the way nUI does it for me so now I don't even have to worry about it

Okay, a little update on this.

I've pretty much got everything in place and recoded the menu system, so I am currently working through each element to make sure they activate the nUI slash commands when you select the option and that they correctly register the current value ( although in some cases the range of numbers may not tally with the existing value - see an example below ).

The good news with this change is that the floating point numbers I was having problems with before are no longer an issue.

Now, for the example I mentioned above :

Minimum Cooldown to Display = range 0 to 60.

Now with a slider on the GUI it can easily be situated with single increments without taking up more space. However, with a drop down menu that does not scroll unfortunately, 60 items in a single list can be a might bit too long so instead I have condensed the values to something as follows:

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,20,30,40,50,60

These values are generated automatically using a funciton that receives a min (0) , max (60) , smallstep (1), bigstep (10), firstblock (10) values and the function calculates a set of numbers to fit that range making sure that the list doesn't reach more than 20 if possible.

Percentages I show as values between 0 and 100 with increments of 5 and 10 to allow the list to generate properly and then divide by 100 to get the current value to set the check flag.

So, now the core coding is done it is the case of setting the menu data up to utilise as many of the configurable values as possible into the menu.

I have also split up the menus into categories to make things easier to get to ( I hope ). For example: Console, Hud, Dashboard, Tooltip. The nUI screen is pretty much those 4 elements although as I work through the list testing them I may decide to add extras to further define them.

I'll try to get it all completed by the end of the week but if not I will give you an update.

I have started work on adding in the new changes and making some other changes along with it

Such as actually having a nice display text for each option instead of the command

It will take a little while as I am trying to multi task several things in equality .. but so much stuff and so little time rofl. I'll keep you aprised of any update

As always, if you have any suggestions to add to this addon then now is the time to ask for it

For all those wondering or using this in fact - rofl - I will be updating it but once it hits a release version as not everyone is using the development version yet. If you can't wait then either post here or in my portal or even just message me. If enough people need it now I will work on it and release a development version too.

Thanks Carz.

I never really thought of prioritzing the localization limitations but did try to display it high enough to be read with little effort when reading the description.

But considering a portal at some point just waiting to see if I get any more addon ideas thrown at me to make it useful to do that.
