Warcraftic's Addon Spotlight: Tidy Plates

Bug Reporting
I'd love for you to use the Curseforge Ticket System for submitting bug reports. I realize that this isn't convenient for some people, so I won't get upset if you post reports to the comment section. If you include an error log in your comment, I will probably delete that posting (after copying the information) because they're usually very long and can fill up an entire page.

Configuration
To change your theme:
Use the command, '/tidyplates' as a shortcut to the interface panel for Tidy Plates. On that panel, you'll be able to select from a list of installed themes. The theme you choose will define both the appearance and features.

To configure a theme:
Each theme is responsible for its own configuration, which means that some themes have a GUI panel and some do not. The bundled themes (Quatre, Neon, Graphite & Grey) come with a configuration tool called, Tidy Plates Hub. Shortcuts: '/hubdamage' or '/hubtank'




I'm not going to bug you by popping up an ad whenever you hit "Download". If you enjoy this addon and want to send a monetary "Thank You", please visit our Pledgie page by clicking on the button, above.
6.13.2 (Cumulative)
---------------------------
* Core: Added: unit.isMini = boolean. This will eventually replace "unit.platetype" and "unit.isTrivial". Not anytime soon, though.

* Widgets: Fixed UnitCache to account for changes to the guild roster format
* Widgets: Re-Fixed Class Icon
* Widgets: Fixed the Class Icon widget. Finally. Added class-colored borders to each icon.

* Hub: Added a new checkbox to "Scale"; "Auto-Scale Mini Mobs", which will downscale those tiny guys, ironically making it easier to target.
* Hub: Added a new checkbox to "Unit Filter", "Override Target Scale", which will maintain the filtered scale of Targeted Mobs.
* Hub: "Use Blizzard font" should work properly again.
* Hub: Moved "Health Bar" to the top of the Hub page
* Hub: Merged "Style" into "Headline Mode"
* Hub: Raised "Buffs & Debuffs" upward in the Hub page
* Hub: "Health Bar" gets a couple new choices; Namely, separate coloring options for Friendly vs Enemy plates.
* Hub: Pruned the Color Mode lists
* Hub: Removed the "Warning Border Glow Mode" selector; Don't worry! There's still a Warning Glow, but it's turned on/off within the "Threat" category.
* Hub: Added an option to "Spell Casting", "Enable Friendly Castbars"

* Themes: More fixes for text issues.
* Themes: New Font: Started replacing "Accidental Presidency" with "Roboto Condensed" across the bundled themes.
* Themes: Update Grey and Graphite to the new font variable
* Themes: Reduced "Roboto Condensed" size to better match the old font

6.12.6
---------------------------
- Widgets: Combo Point: Anticipation "fix"
- Hub: Cached class colors in instances

6.12.5
---------------------------
- Widgets: Unit Cache: Stores non-local units with a " (*)" suffix.
- Hub: Class colors on cached units shoud work properly

6.12.4
---------------------------
- Core: New unit data: unit.rawName, strips the (*) from nameplate names.
- Core: The carrier frame is now globally labeled with a unique frame name.
- Hub: Healer Tracking: Now uses unit.rawName rather than unit.name
- Widgets: Aura Tracker: Now uses unit.rawName to associate on-screen PvP names
- Widgets: Unit Cache: Will now properly filter non-realm units (ex. coalesced or battlegroup)

6.12.2
---------------------------
- Revert fix for viewport mod interaction. Works for some, not for most. Continue using "Compatibility Mode" to fix Viewport.

6.12.1
---------------------------
- TOC Bump
- Core: OnShowCastbar will now check for unit health before proceeding, hopefully avoiding errors when the Castbar's OnShow handler is called early.
- * Fix for Viewport Mods (specifically, Sunn), particularly, when the actual vertical viewport is decreased.

* This should reduce or eliminate the need for Compatibility Mode.

6.12.0
---------------------------
- Core: Compatibility Mode: Restored alpha-override behavior
- Hub: Warning Glow: Fixed InCombatLockdown() reference

6.12.Beta4...
- I may have fixed some bugs. Or maybe that was a dream. Hard to recall whilst under Benadryl's spell.
- Ok, I definitely changed some things, and I'm not getting errors in game. That's a good sign.
- Made some changes to (hopefully) fix 1) debuff tracking oddities, and 2) lua error using health text.

6.12.Beta3...
- Added a workaround/fix to the broken Blizzard function, InterfaceOptionsFrame_OpenToCategory. Slash command shortcuts for /hub and /tidyplates will now work properly.
- Added a Compatibility Mode checkbox to the interface panel. This will fall back to older anchoring methods.
- Core: The OnShow handler will skip all data gather on that first cycle; The Alpha data is (still) unreliable, causing GUID association issues.

6.12.Beta2...
- Updated 6.12 with the changes made to the castbar during 6.11. (Since 6.12 inherits the 6.10 core, it didn't see the progression)
- Aura Widget: Fixed issue where aura is briefly shown, then hidden. Should be fixed.
- Added a copy of the reference to healthbar and castbar. for Threat Plates Compatibility.

6.12.Beta1...
- Reintegration of 6.10 Core, which includes reorganization and rebuilding of the main engine.

6.11.3
---------------------------
- Check unit.health on spell cast functions, to catch premature update calls.

6.11.2
---------------------------
- TOC update on TidyPlatesHub (problem caused when I reverted to 6.9.9 core)

6.11.1
---------------------------
- Core: Fixed a cast bar bug, where the sub-object references were not being updated. Addresses certain "attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'health' (a nil value)" errors


6.11
---------------------------
- Basically, I've given up trying to quickly patch up 6.10. I've reverted to 6.9.9, and made the changes necessary for it to work with WoW 5.3. If you want the Performance Mode stuff, grab the old version, or keep an eye out for it to be Re-Beta'd as 6.12.

These are the changes that I've migrated:
- Spell Casting Update, for WoW 5.3
- Core: Set initial fonts during Init/Hooking. Removes the possibility of :SetFont() errors.
- Combo Points: "Anticipation" fix for non-english regions


6.10.4
---------------------------
- Core: Fixed a major typo. Should fix SetStyle/Headline Mode and ClassIcon LUA errors at the very least. Might explain some of the other elusive bugs.


6.10.3
---------------------------
* Performance Mode:
By default this is NOT enabled, reverting to the older, slower, reliable method.
Using Performance Mode may break HHTD and other nameplate addons.
You may also experience 'hung' nameplates. Please report these, and try to be as
specific as possible in describing the condition of the game when it occured.

- Core: (Since 6.10.2) Performance Mode: This enables the performance improvements introduced in 6.10.
- Core: Reintegrated original Alpha locking
- Core: More reorganization, pruning of old, dead methods
- Core: Set initial fonts during Init/Hooking. Removes the possibility of :SetFont() errors. Not sure why I didn't do this years ago.
- Panel: Removal of latent "Show Minimap Icon" button code

6.10.2
---------------------------
- Panel: New Option: Performance Mode. This enables the performance improvements introduced in 6.10. By default this is NOT enabled, which uses the safer parenting method.
- Using "Performance Mode" may cause problems with other nameplate addons.


6.10.1
---------------------------
- Panel: Reverted the dropdown menu init changes from beta4. Seems to be messing up the panel.
- Core: Blizz Spell Shadow: More thoroughly hidden
- Hub: Threat/Warning Glow fix
- Core: Spelltext; "Font Not Set" error - Hopefully fixed

6.10.0
---------------------------
- Update to 5.3 TOC
- Core: *Parenting Tidy Plates Frame to UIParent & Reanchor back to base nameplate. Performance boost.
- Core: Refactoring, oh my
- Core: Removed the 'Spell Cast Watcher' component; 5.3 natively adds this function.
- Core: Added hooks to the on-nameplate spell cast bar
- Combo Points: "Anticipation" fix for non-english regions? someone needs to test this, cuz I'm in an english region.
- Healertrack: Strsplit fix (thought I fixed that several months ago.. hmmm...)

* The new anchoring method is still new, and weird bugs may surface. Post yer bugs!

6.9.9
---------------------------
- Hub: Added "Selective Optional Text"
- Deprecated: 'customart' Texture and theme functions. Please use the Widget system to create additional textures. (Removing unused textures provides a small performance improvement)
- Core: Reorganized the nameplate strata, removing an unnecessary anchor frame
- Core: Reorganized and relabeled some internal functions, adding a few extra comments
- Core & Aura Widget: Made some changes to reduce extraneous calls.
- Aura Widget: "Show Dispellable Auras" should work, now. Ran some BGs, and things seemed to work.
- Hub: Added a warning, notifying the user when they're not using a Hub-compatible theme.
- Hub: Added a divider line between Headings
- Aura Widget: The old method of applying the aura widget has been re-added; The new method (described somewhere below) is still preferred!

6.9.8....
- Hub: "By Threat" Color Modes will pass through enemy class colors, when available, and then use Reaction colors. (NPC-Pets will continue to use the "By Threat" colors)
- Hub: "By Threat" Warning Glow Mode now incorporates "By Enemy Healer", so it can be used for Pvp without changing config.
* These changes may evolve into more situationally reactive configs... we'll see!
- Widgets: HealerTrack: Should more reliably and quickly detect the spec of the enemy units.

6.9.7....
- Fixed Tank Aura Watcher issue

6.9.6....
- Performance improvement on Hidden mobs
- Aura Widget: Better association of Player characters, especially for friendly Buffs
- More extensive 'nil' strsplit error checking
- Hub: Added "Reaction" and "Spell Casting" color options
- Hub: Added reaction colors to 'By Threat' Functions
- Hub: The Widget creation and update functions will look for, and call: TidyPlatesGlobal_OnInitialize, TidyPlatesGlobal_OnContextUpdate, TidyPlatesGlobal_OnUpdate.
TidyPlatesGlobal_OnInitialize() is called when a nameplate is created or re-shown
TidyPlatesGlobal_OnContextUpdate() is called when a unit is targeted or moused-over. (Any time the unitid or GUID changes)
TidyPlatesGlobal_OnUpdate() is called when other data about the unit changes, or is requested by an external controller.
* These functions can be used to create and maintain non-theme widgets. Eventually, they may be implemented directly into the Core
* Widget authors should hook the existing function, if it's present (No Returns):
Ex. local OriginalFunction = TidyPlatesGlobal_OnInitialize
TidyPlatesGlobal_OnInitialize = function (extended)
if not extended.widgets.mywidget then extended.widgets.mywidget = CreateFrame("Frame", nil, extended) end
if OriginalFunction then OriginalFunction(extended) end

6.9.5
---------------------------
- Core: Reversion of scale and alpha handling to 6.9.Beta3 (Removal of transition effects)

6.9.4
---------------------------
I need coffee. Now.

6.9.3
---------------------------
- Tapped Mobs now apparently have the color: 0.53, 053, 0.53.... so I've updated the core to properly ID tapped mobs
- Mousing over a nameplate will temporarily bring that frame to FrameLevel 1, which should help targeting in crowds.
- A few other little things that I can't recall now. I need sleep!

6.9.2
---------------------------
- More bug fixing, which seems to be a blessing in-disguise, since it's yeilding some removal of redundancies, and (hopefully) incremental improvement in performance.
- Hub: Added a new Filter Item, "Filter Mini-Mobs". This'll allow you to scale and fade those pesky mobs with mini-nameplates. 70% works well for me.


6.9.1
---------------------------
- Fixed: Raid Icon Bug? (Changed some stuff around to even further reduce the chance of an out-of-order plate styling.)
- Increased default rate of Alpha/Scale Transitions. Can be changed via, TidyPlates:EnableFadeIn(FadeRate)
- Added some additional code to check for nil values in the Default Filter Function.
- Added Players to the "Filter" Hub Mode

Note: Threat Plates v6.008 is not completely compatible; If you're using Threat Plates, please use Tidy Plates v6.8.3


6.9.0
---------------------------
- Core: Added Scale Transitions. Disable via, TidyPlates:DisableFadeIn() or /tidyplates panel
- Core: Added full Alpha Transitions. Disable via, TidyPlates:DisableFadeIn() or /tidyplates panel
- Core: Added a Tidy Plates Panel checkbox to control the Scale/Alpha fade feature
- Core: New unit variable: unit.platetype = 1 or 2, where 1 = normal Blizzard nameplate, and 2 = mini nameplates (seen on 'drone' mobs, for example)
- Core: Added code to correct value '0' scale from delegate functions
- Core: The SetHealthbarColor delegate will now control the statusbar-backdrop color in addition to the healthbar color:
- 1. The SetHealthbarColor delegate gradient has been deprecated (It accepted two rgb sets - r1,g1,b1,r2,g2,b2 - which corresponded to the endpoints of a gradient)
- 2. SetHeatlhbarColor now accepts two rgba sets - r1, g1, b1, a1, r2, g2, b2, a2 - which define the healthbar color+alpha and the backdrop color+alpha, respectively.
- Core: Deprecated "SetStatusbarWidthMatching" flag
- Core: Deprecated "style.frame" - Blizz made some changes, rendering this option obsolete.
- Aura Widget: Added a check for destination name in the Aura Widget (Fixes "AuraWidget.lua:658" error)
- Aura Widget: Fixed Default Prefilter Errors
- Aura Widget: 'TidyPlatesWidgets.SetAuraPrefilter(function) replaces 'TidyPlatesWidgets.SetDebuffPrefilter'
- Aura Widget: 'TidyPlatesWidgets.SetAuraFilter(function)' replaces the previous method of assigning the Filter into each Widget instance via 'wiget.Filter'
- Aura Widget: Filter function now accepts these return values: [show, priority, r, g, b], where 'show' indicates that the aura should be displayed, 'priority' indicates
how important the debuff is to display, and 'r', 'g', and 'b' indicate the vertex color of the border highlight. This can be used to colorize auras for different
schools or types.
- Aura Widget: Square/Small Auras will now terminate/expire properly, and call for a delegate update.
- Hub/Aura Widget: Added "Track Dispellable Debuffs on Friendly Units", which will allow you to track and highlight debuffs on friendly units that need to be dispelled.
"Magic", "Poison", "Curse", or "Disease". Have I tested it? Hahahaha..he.. um, no.
- Hub/Aura Widget: Removed prefix, "No"; Useless in the current evolution of the Hub Filter system.
- Hub/Aura Widget: "CC" prefix will highlight the aura with a Yellow border
- Hub: Added Health/Optional Text Mode: By Arena ID. I have no clue if it works.
- Hub: Aura prefilter should work properly, instead of letting everything through
- Hub: Multi-Mode Functions will cross-check the table index, preventing out-of-range values from throwing errors.
- Hub: Removed/Replaced distinct "By Low Threat", "By High Threat", and similar Modes from Scale, Alpha, Name, and Color Spotlight functions. THESE HAVE BEEN REPLACED by
a single setting under the "Threat" Category, allowing you to control the Threat Mode for all Threat functions.
- Raid Tank/Target Watcher: Fixed Tanks.lua nil 'for' limit
- Raid Tank/Target Watcher: Fixed unitid/raidid issue.
- Raid Tank/Target Watcher: Added combat-log detection of melee attacks against non-tanks. (Untested)
- GroupCache: Fixed an issue where class color was not available for the last friendly raid member to join a team. (Note: The GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE event is sometimes called
before all the player data is available, leaving holes in the data table)

6.8.2
---------------------------
- TAPPED mobs now are a unit.reaction member. No way to tell between tapped friendlies and tapped enemies (this does occasionally happen). I will make the Reaction colors configurable within the Hub UI in the near future.
- Added "Filtered Unit Scale" to the Hub:Filter category
- Removed test code, which was accidentally causing Mages to get Priest coloring and Icon
- Support for Phanx's "Class Colors" addon, http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info12513-ClassColors.html

6.8.1
---------------------------
- "Tapped" units (colored light purple by the Blizz nameplate system) will now register as "Hostile NPCs" in Tidy Plates. This is partially inaccurate, since the tapped mobs could be neutral (like target dummies), but there is no way to discriminate this from the plate.
- Fixed several tainted global variables
- Added custom Monk and Priest color lookups for class recognition. (RAID_CLASS_COLORS is not completely accurate)
- Changed the way the class colors are stored, hopefully fixing some other class ID problems
- Disable Tanks module by default. Add option button to hub.
- Hopefully Fixed Off-Tank coloring issue.

6.8
---------------------------
- Fixed nil index error

6.7.10
---------------------------
- Patch 5.1 Compatibility: The Blizzard nameplate format changed, breaking the addon. This update restores Tidy Plates' functionality.
- TOC updates to 50100

6.7.9
---------------------------
- Corrected another error in the spell cast watcher; "StopCastAnimationOnNameplate" is now properly referenced. This only affects arena matches. I don't do arenas, so this was never properly tested. Let me know if more errors pop up.

6.7.8
---------------------------
- Corrected a typo in the spell cast watcher; "StartCastAnimation" is now properly, "StartCastAnimationOnNameplate".

6.7.7
---------------------------
- Fixed: Monk Tank mode (Stance of the Sturdy Ox stance added to the shapeshift list)
- Corrected various threat values coming into the threat line widget
- Core: extended plate verification process
- Removed many unneeded local variables
- Combed files for any "_" that could be global

6.7.6
---------------------------
- Added code to verify healthmax values.
- Sets framelevel to 0. Targetted plates are raised to 1, which still does obscure the chatbox and minimap. This also occurs with the standard Blizz nameplates, and cannot be corrected without raising the strata or level of those other frames.
- Added a rudimentary localization framework. To use: Create an addon named, "TidyPlatesHubXX" where the XX is the last two letters of the localization code. Ex. "TidyPlatesHubDE". Within the code for that addon, create a table called, 'TidyPlatesHubLocalization', and add the translations. For example:
TidyPlatesHubLocalization["Style"] = "Translation of STYLE". See TidyPlatesHub\Lists.lua for an example. Future versions will add a "Dump" mode for outputting all the text that needs translating.
- Changed the background, anchoring, and font sizes in the Hub, for readability.
- Changed the core template, and added a 'default' style, which looks like the Blizzard nameplates. (will be useful in a future version)


6.7.5
- Removed framestrata code from, MinimapCluster, PlayerFrame, and TargetFrame
- Threat Line Widget: WTF!!! Shootin' from the hip, again.

6.7.4
- Fixed giant threat bar issue (Corrected group size ranges in GetRelativeThreat() utility function)
- Raised MinimapCluster, PlayerFrame, and TargetFrame to "LOW" framestrata to prevent nameplates from obscuring those UI elements.
- Currently, there is no way to fix the brief 'flash' of the Blizzard nameplate art before it becomes active; It's a bug for the Blizz folks to solve.

6.7.2:
- Aura Widget: Fixed error, where certain auras filtered by spellid were not being displayed.
- Group Cache: Fixed updates for friendly group class colors (hopefully!)
- Group & Unit Cache: Will not try to search the global unit cache for class information while you are in a dungeon (could slow things down, and it isn't needed)
- Core: Reverted to earlier method of discriminating nameplates
- Threat Line Widget: Added some code to prevent it from accidentally becoming REALLY long.

Does anyone still use the Threat Line Widget? Tank Threat is so high, now, that I wonder if this will/has become irrelevant. Let me know; http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/tidy-plates/forum/

6.7.1
- fixed some stuff

6.7.0 Cumulative Changes:
- Upgraded the TOC file version number to 50001
- Added: TidyPlates:EnableFadeIn() and TidyPlates:DisableFadeIn() functions, to control the nameplate fade-in mechanic. Default is Enabled.
- Added "Stance of the Sturdy Ox" to the Tank Aura list. This should fix some "By Threat" oddities.
- Added Monk specs to the HealerTrack widget.
- Added PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD to Tank watcher events (to fix the line 39: nil errors)
- (Hopefully) Fixed pauses while using the Arena mode with the Spell Cast Warning system
- Capacitor Totem
- Fixed: Bug where current theme selection would be lost when logging-in.
- Added BUFFS to the aura widget.
- Added texture coordinate function to tidyplates statusbar widget. Usage/Example: healthbar.left = 0, healthbar.right = 1, healthbar.bottom = 0, healthbar.top = 1
- Rearrangement of the Hub panel. The debuff widget has been moved to its own category.
- Enhanced both the debuff widget and the spell cast warning module with support for Arena unitid event capture (via the standard event system, rather than the combat log).
- Updated to MoP standards (which will work with 4.3, too)
- Functions which have been renamed for MoP have been replaced by an internal function (provided by Tidy Plates) which is aware of the current client version, and will choose the appropriate function.
- Tidy Plates now uses an internal button template, which replaces the UIPanelButtonTemplate2, which was removed in MoP

Tidy Plates 6.6...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Highlights

Headline Mode
Instead of displaying a graphical health-bar, we can display critical information using just text, reducing the surface area of the nameplate and revealing more of the game world. The Headline style can be mixed with traditional Health Bar nameplates to improve your awareness and reduce visual clutter.

Compact Debuff Widget
In addition to numerous performance improvements, the current version of the Debuff widget now includes the option to use Square icons!

Detachable Hub Panel
Click the minimize button to unsnap the Hub panel into it's own smaller, draggable configuration window.

Speedy Configuration
Use '/hub' to quickly enter the active Hub Panel.

Bookmarks
In the Hub, use the 'Bookmarks' button to jump to a category.

Improved Copy & Paste
This is a simple method of transferring profiles between characters. Clicking the Hub's 'Copy' button will save your settings to a global database. The data persists even if your computer is turned-Off. Clicking the 'Paste' button will replace your current settings with the Copied settings. You can paste between characters on different servers.

Using the 'Shift' key while clicking will use a different clipboard, isolated to the Hub's Role Type, but still acessible between characters. In other words, you've got three slots (Universal, Tank, and Damage) to copy your settings.

Performance Improvements
Refinement of the caching systems has reduced Memory and CPU usage. Some folks have seen dramatic FPS drops. This update should fix that stuff!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cumulative Changes Since 6.5:

- Under the "Style" category, all references to "Text-Only Plates" or "TextPlates" have been changed to "Headline Mode". This change is intended to distinguish the style modifier from other references to "Text". I'm sure some of you will hate this (can you come up with something better?), but I'm hoping that less cranky folks find the new grammar to be more intuitive.
- To support the "Headline Mode" name change, I've added a new category. Can you guess? It's, "Headline".
- I've grouped the "Color" and "Text" categories into "Color & Text", and moved them to the second-category position. Why?? 1: "Color & Text" controls the appearance of the default 'Health Bar' style. 2: Underneath, "Headline" controls the appearance of the 'No Bar' style. Thus: This arrangement puts these options close to where the user selects the modes, in the "Style" category.
- Square Debuff Icon Option: Added a new Debuff Widget option, "Debuff Style", which allows the user to select between the traditional "Wide" debuff format, or a more squareish "Compact" style. The column count is increased to 5 for the "Compact" style.
- Bookmark System: Added a "Bookmark" system to the Hub panels, which allows a user to jump directly to any of the categories
- On certain themes, the position of your debuffs will be adjusted to allow the combo point widget to comfortably fit (on Rogues and Druids, only). When the combo widget is disabled, the icons will "snug" themselves closer to the plate.
- Using the '/hub' command will bring you to the Hub Configuration panel for your current theme
- Added click sounds to the 'Copy' and 'Paste' buttons
- Bug fixes and Memory optimization
- Added a Prefilter option for the debuff widget cache
* The hub enables the prefilter, when you're using the 'By Prefix" mode
* Debuffs NOT on your list are not cached
* This should save a ton of memory if you're using 'By Prefix'
- Made some changes to the Unit Data Cache system to reduce memory use, and avoid certain 'lag' events...
* Pet/Companion NPC titles are no longer cached
* Cached unit guild and npc titles are now stored within the TidyPlatesWidgetData variable, keeping this data out of the base TidyPlates saved variables
* Hub/Reset button will now clear the cached unit descriptions/titles and guilds
* Unit descriptions (player guild name, or NPC role/title) will not be displayed while in an instance. This is to avoid the CPU overhead that occurs when searching the database, which could be THOUSANDS of entries. This is a direct cause for massive FPS drop, in some cases.
* A side-effect of these changes is the clearing of user's stored guild names and NPC titles. This is required to get the desired performance benefits.
- Matched widget duration timer to default blizz interface standard (using 'floor' rather than 'ceil')
- Fixed SpellId variable name in widgets\tank.lua
- Spell Cast Monitor: If cast time is not greater than 0, make it a minimum of 1.5s
- Added NameColorByEnemyClass
- Minimize Hub now scale to 85%
- Rearranged Name Color: By Friendly/Enemy class
- Improved HealerTrack.lua, with help from Curseforge user, dakunesu. Improves detection of healers in battlegrounds! Rockin!
- Added a "Minimize" button to the /hub UI panel. Clicking this will detach the Hub panel from the Interface Options window, and make it smaller. Good for configuring stuff while playing.
- The Copy & Paste buttons for the Hub panels now work with a unified Clipboard, so you can Copy & Paste between Tank and DPS panels. Holding down "Shift" while clicking Copy or Paste will use the original Tank/DPS-specific caches.
- New Hub Option: "Bring Casting Units to Spotlight Scale"
- Unit Cache should filter out reputation names. This fixes an issue occuring when "Colorblind" mode is active, causing Reputation to be displayed instead of an NPC's Title.
- "Filter > Filter Inactive": When a unit is marked with a target/raid-icon, it's now assumed to be Active.
- And more (ie. stuff I've forgotten about)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beta Notes:

(r457 Beta6)

- Added a few more Headline Modes

(r452 Beta5)
- Fixed nil table index in HealerTrack.lua
- Added a Prefilter option for the debuff widget cache

(r451 Beta4)
- Made some changes to reduce memory use, and avoid certain 'lag' events...

* Hub/Reset button will now clear the cached unit descriptions/titles and guilds
* Unit descriptions (player guild name, or NPC role/title) will not be displayed while in an instance. This is to avoid the CPU overhead that occurs when searching the database.
* A side-effect of these changes is the clearing of user's stored guild names and NPC titles. This is required to get the desired performance benefits.

(r440 Beta)
Quality-of-Life...
- Square Debuff Icons: Added a new Debuff Widget option, "Debuff Style", which allows the user to select between the traditional "Wide" debuff format, or a more squareish "Compact" style. The column count is increased to 5 for the "Compact" style.
- Bookmark System: Added a "Bookmark" system to the Hub panels, which allows a user to jump directly to any of the categories
- On certain themes, the position of your debuffs will be adjusted to allow the combo point widget to comfortably fit (on Rogues and Druids, only). When the combo widget is disabled, the icons will "snug" themselves closer to the plate.
- Using the '/hub' command will bring you to the Hub Configuration panel for your current theme
- Added click sounds to the 'Copy' and 'Paste' buttons
- My OCD: Under the "Style" category, all references to "Text-Only Plates" or "TextPlates" have been changed to "Headline Mode". This change is intended to distinguish the style modifier from other references to "Text". I'm sure some of you will hate this (can you come up with something better?), but I'm hoping that less cranky folks find the new grammar to be more intuitive.
- To support the "Headline Mode" name change, I've added a new category. Can you guess? "Headline".
- I've grouped the "Color" and "Text" categories into "Color & Text", and moved them to the second-category position. Why?? 1: "Color & Text" controls the appearance of the default 'Health Bar' style. 2: Underneath, "Headline" controls the appearance of the 'No Bar' style. Thus: This arrangement puts these options close to where the user selects the modes, in the "Style" category.

Bug Fixes...
- Unit Cache should filter out reputation names. This fixes an issue occuring when "Colorblind" mode is active, causing Reputation to be displayed instead of an NPC's Title.
- "Filter > Filter Inactive": When a unit is marked with a target/raid-icon, it's now assumed to be Active.

6.4
-----------------
(r364)

(r355)
- Fixed: List-to-lookup table conversion for Unit Filter, By Name
- Fixed: Hub/Tank slider ranges (They were not actually broken, just different from the Damage Hub)

(r350)

(r338)
- Debuff Priority works for "Show Specific" and "Show My Specific" modes, in addition to "By Prefix"

- All textures are now Non-blocking (the game won't wait for textures to load into memory before it draws the scene), preventing texture changes from affecting frame rate
- The debuff widget (should now be called Aura Widget) will track buffs for friendly players

(r308)
- Debuff widget now uses single dimension tables to store cached data, to improve memory management

- If theme.SetCastbarColor returns nil, the cast animation will be skipped
* This can be used to filter spell casting data

* Debuff widget now Caches texture of debuffs (to fix sunfire phenomenon, and similar)

- Users can select between two styles (Health Bars vs Text Only), and several different visibility conditions.
- If you use the Text Only bars, you might want to check out the Name Text Color options, to spice up that text!
* Spell Cast Monitor name search will now strip the "-" from the combat log name, which should fix PvP cast association issues.
* Debuff Widget will now strip the "-" from combat log events, which should fix pvp association issues

- Fixed UnitChannelInfo interruptable spell argument bug
- Found a bug; The Editboxes contained in my ScrollFrames seem to invisibly extend past the bottom of the scrollframe, which can block underlying UI controls. I've dropped the editboxes to a lower frame level, which is a hack method of preventing problems with it interferring with controls anchored to the bottom of the scrollframe. Will attempt to figure out a better solution.
- Name text coloring modes
- By Raid Icon modes for Opacity and Scale

r238 (6.1.10)
- Fixed un-interruptable spell bug on channeled spells

- Debuff widget will clear aurainstance tables when combat ends (regen returns)
- Added Health Text option: Approximate Health (will show 2 decimal places for thousands (k) and millions (M), with suffix)

- Grey has been included


5.15
-------------


r69:
- Commented-out "Other Tank" code in Neon; It needs more polish

- fixed nil values during set scale
- adjusted neon font to 'Qlassik', size, and position for better clarity
- added some comments to the default theme file

r43:
- Improved Fade
- Added a unit.targetOf variable, which the core will attempt to fill, depending on if there is a path to that unit (target, mousover, raid1target, party2target, etc.. doesn't fill from arena, yet)

5.11.4
---------------

+ Went to ArialNarrow for the default font
+ Grey\DPS
+ Added Hide Neutrals, Ignore Elites
+ Added SetPoint to extended (just in case)
+ Changed health bar color gathering to assist duels

- Removed from loading procedure:
- SetCVar("CameraDistanceMaxFactor", 6)
- SetCVar("threatWarning", 3)
- SetCVar("ShowClassColorInNameplate", 1)
- SetCVar("showVKeyCastbar", 1)

5.10.2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Removed Cvar setting, "CameraDistanceMaxFactor" (fixes camera zoom issues)
+ Re-enabled Cursor Update Event

5.10.1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Remove Cvar setting, "CameraDistanceMaxFactor" (fixes camera zoom issues)
+ Cursor Update Event

Add to Grey:
+ Scale: ignore non-elites
+ Alpha: hide non-elites
+ Spinner Widget
+ move widgets to .widget
+ add a target widget to grey (testing)

5.10
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
++ "Avoid Overlap" (Alias) in panel
++ "Autoshow" Option in panel
++ Independent Frame
* scale pass-through (Not fully implemented; using Virtual Plates AND a theme which changes scale will show oddities)
* force alpha override (The developer can tell Tidy Plates to force the alpha - avoiding Blizzard's default alpha - by returning 'true' as a second value for the return)
- ex. theme.SetAlpha = function(unit) return 1, true end -- Will maintain the opacity at 100%, regardless of target status
++ Set Default CVars after VARIABLES_LOADED
++ Dual Spec Support (Changes theme based on spec)
- Added a second dropdown menu in panel
++ Troubleshooting Panel
- Vkey/Bindings
- reset/reload
++ Widgets
+ created TidyPlatesWidgets. table
+ Threat Wheel
+ Class Icon Widget
+ Combo Point Widget
+ Threat Line
+ MT Logic Widget
+ Syntax usage will follow
++ Scale pass-through (Not Complete; Using Virtual Plates AND a theme which changes scale will show oddities)
++ Performance Enhancements
++ More Comments (woo?)
++ Code Re-organization
++ Widgets now use TidyPlatesWidgets:HideIn(), and a watcher frame to perform time checks; Faster than having
each widget process for OnUpdate
++ Improvements to Panel Helpers
++ Unit Info table
+ .GUID (from mouseover or target)
++ Grey Theme
++ Critter/Neutral Filter checkbox
++ Panel redesign
++ Tank Mode; "Expands the size of runaway mobs"
++ DPS Mode; "Expands the size of aggro'd mobs"
++ Widgets
++ Each of my own themes should have their own config panel for role,
allowing dual spec to work seamlessly..
TidyPlatesThemes["Grey (DPS)"] = config
TidyPlatesThemes["Grey (Tank)"] = copytable(config)
++ Virtual Plates should now behave better
* Scale-changing plates will still cause problemos, but now, ordinary plates will work just fine.
* Returning NIL in your ScaleDelegate function (if you've got multiple modes) will allow VirtualPlates passthrough.
++ Grey Tank/DPS panels and saved variables got some love; They work better
+ Delegate functions now use local variables for speed
+ Fixed Forceupdate
+ Fixed some Grey variables
+ something else.. forgot what it was. (Ok, I remembered; I spelled "deficit" wrong. I bought the wrong vowel!)
+ Fixed Health Text modes
* Grey Theme
- Added Current Health + Percent
* Widgets
- General Mouseover Widget
- Combo Point Widget
* Still had trouble with nameplate alpha changes updating after the OnShow call.
-- Solution: Indvidual Plate echo-update
* Retracted "Raid-Tanked" Widget (for the time-being)
* Added an extended.widget table
- Theme designers should put all their widget references in this table
* When nameplates are changed (manually or auto) by the Tidy Plates UI,
the software will attempt to hide/clear any frames listed under the
extended.widget table.

5.9.5
* Critter/Neutral Filter on default theme, returned to Mode-level
* fix for hunter pets, grey threat widget

5.9.4
* Adjusted position of default theme data, to reduce targeting woes
* Added a cache reset to the Hide hook
* ForceUpdate now only operates on Shown plates
* CURSOR_UPDATE is now part of the default events
* Added alpha == 0 bypass
* Elite Borders now have a star on the artwork, making visual ID easier
* Simplified Scale and Alpha delegates of the default theme
* Critter Filter on default theme, now always on

5.9.3
* frame layering tweaks
* moved some skinning code around
* casting progress now forces single plate graphical updates (to eliminate casting icon oddities)
* painted my nails

5.9.2
* removed some old code related to the frame separation "feature" *shudder*
* frames faded too much (more than 50%); problem fixed
* level text will not show when skull icon is active
* TidyPlates:ForceUpdate() does not allow targetting a specific frame, anymore. Use: TidyPlates:ForceUpdateFrame(frame), instead
* added .secureframe pointer to .extended, pointing to the base frame
* added .flags to name, level, specialText, and specialText2 - used for adding outlines to your text... if you REALLY want them. *shudder*


5.9.1
* Changed default fonts from Arial to Liberation (halves the file size, woo!)
* Undo the frame separation (Allows Virtual Plates to run)
* '.hitbox' has been added, as a style category. This will alter the clickable region, out-of-combat
- .hitbox.height height of hitbox (default: 37)
- .hitbox.width width of hitbox (default: 149)

Tidy Plates 5.9 Release Notes
Release
* Clean Up Files - Check!
* Rename of "Beta Grey" to "Standard Grey" - Check!
* re-added health bar color function

See Changelog.txt for the complete WALL OF TEXT!

I would like to use Headline mode exclusively. Is there way to display the level AND health percent in headline mode together?

If you want to return to the old way of doing things, the compatibility mode button will lower your CPU usage. And frame rate.
No, i've been running cpu profiling for weeks. and tidy plates is using a lot more cpu usage in 6.12.4 than it was in 6.12.2 or 6.12.1..i'm not sure about what 6.12.3 was using....tidy plates went from being somewhere mid pack to being my highest cpu usage mod, from some VERY recent change. not the new core positioning stuff. I'll run more cpu profiling in raid tonight and maybe do a comparison screen shot
Even 6.12.4 is pretty old, at this point. Changelog says that there was a reversion of a core change from 6.12.1 to 6.12.2/3. Doesn't seem like the culprit.
I actually don't think the cpu time is something that it does in combat. it seems it's doing more while idle now? i notice more usage sitting around shrine for long periods of time afk. Maybe related to your menu changes? are they being used by all mods or just tidy plates? is there any loop in there that runs while idle that's recent?
Interesting. No new event handlers since the last core revision. The menu addition is a frame with buttons, which is populated when it's called. It's only called by Tidy Plates and the Hub panels. Simple replacement for the UIDropDownMenu, which has frequently been a source of headache.

Just did a diff between 6.12.1 and 6.12.4 TidyPlatesCore.lua...

The only significant difference is...

Lua Code:
  1. local x,y = plate:GetCenter()
  2. carrier:SetPoint("CENTER", WorldFrame, "BOTTOMLEFT", floor(x), floor(y))

vs

Lua Code:
  1. local _,_,_,x,y = extended.bars.group:GetPoint()
  2. carrier:SetPoint("CENTER", WorldFrame, "BOTTOMLEFT", floor(x), floor(y+16))

When I switch between those two lines, I don't see a difference in CPU. Your own mileage may vary. That'd be the only thing which would get called OnUpdate while idle.

If you want to return to the old way of doing things, the compatibility mode button will lower your CPU usage. And frame rate.
No, i've been running cpu profiling for weeks. and tidy plates is using a lot more cpu usage in 6.12.4 than it was in 6.12.2 or 6.12.1..i'm not sure about what 6.12.3 was using....tidy plates went from being somewhere mid pack to being my highest cpu usage mod, from some VERY recent change. not the new core positioning stuff. I'll run more cpu profiling in raid tonight and maybe do a comparison screen shot
Even 6.12.4 is pretty old, at this point. Changelog says that there was a reversion of a core change from 6.12.1 to 6.12.2/3. Doesn't seem like the culprit.

TidyPlates_Neon\Neon.lua if you're looking to do the same thing as Langepac.

You wanted to hide the name, eh?

Code:
DefaultStyle.name = {
	typeface = font,
	size = fontsize,
	width = 200,
	height = 11,
	x = 0,
	y = NameTextVerticalAdjustment,
	align = "CENTER",
	anchor = "CENTER",
	vertical = "CENTER",
	shadow = true,
	flags = "NONE",
	show = false,    -- add this
}
add the line:

Code:
show=false,
