Broker CTracker
Version: 3.3v2
by: ckaotik [More]
You might have guessed it: Broker_CTracker is not really being updated. Instead, I put together Broker_DataStore which you can find on GitHub.

--------- Old Descripton ------------

CTracker is an addon with a very similar functionality to Broker_Currency, Broker_Wallet or CurrencyTracker. If you are happily using one of those, you probably don't want this
CTracker was based on CurrencyTracker. Was, because it has become so different that I feel confident to share it with you! What it does:

-- Features --
* track any currency from a character's currency tab
* any, that means more than three! (Blizzard maximum)
* show different currencies for different characters
* see all your characters' currencies on a glimpse
* enjoy a config screen with funny icons (!!), weird numbers and lots and lots of checkboxes

-- Dependencies -- (not included)
* DataStore
* DataStore_Currencies
* DataStore_Characters
* You will need a LDB-Display, such as Fortress, DockingStation or Bagnon's display.

What you need to use this? Opposed to CurrencyTracker it doesn't keep its own database and it doesn't use default Blizzard functions. Instead, it uses Thaoky's newly created DataStore addons. If you use Altoholic you already have them installed. If not, you can grab them on Curse.
DataStore will keep your character's data conveniently available for any addon wishing to use it. You will no longer have different addons storing the same data - well, at least that's the idea

Why the addon options sometimes show up in the background, I can only guess...

-- Disclamer --
I don't promise anything about updates, features and all that responsible stuff, but possible additions/features include ...
* a prettier tooltip
* some kind of reasonable sorting
* tweaks with the config screen
3.3v2 Added class coloring to tooltip, renamed addon from "CTracker" to "Broker_CTracker" (as it is only a LDB plugin) Either rename your saved variables file (in the WTF folder, named CTracker.lua) to Broker_CTracker.lua or you recreate your settings ... sorry :(
3.3v1 Some rather cosmetic changes, TOC updated to 3.3
3.2v1 LDB text will now actually update when currencies change

Is there a way to display certain marks in the LDB display, and in the tooltip show everything else?

Currently I only know it the other way around - the icons don't fit the text. Might help if you adjust the first line in CTracker.lua - "local iconSize = 16".
That did the trick, 15 is nice

When enabled, it shows me all of the emblem icons as well as the amount, but the amount is show very high up, so high that it goes off the top of my screen. The number should be directly next to the icon, but it is not the case. Please help

Are you sure you have DataStore active? Otherwise, yes, it will not load as it depends on two of those modules: DataStore_Currencies and DataStore_Characters which won't load without DataStore

DataStore is included in Altoholic or you can get it at Curse.

Sometimes there is a layer problem with the config panel. The client gets the layer order mixed up or something ... Usually a reload/relogg helps.

About that "all text is aligned at the top" - could you give me some more information on that? A screenshot maybe?

That is indeed the case. I just don't have the sklightest clue why this would happen. Fact is, it's not only CTracker but many addons that display textures within the "text"-property of LDB.
Besides that, I just cannot find a more detailed information on such texture strings (|Ticontexture:width:heigth:??:??|t) ...

Question: There was a bug before (and possibly still is) about multiple icons being displayed on an LDB panel that is set to fade. Basically, the text would fade like it was supposed to but the icons would stay. This happened with DockingStation, Chocolate Bar, and Ninja Panel when I was using Broker_Currency. Is this problem still apparent?

Great work though, regardless!
