Bazooka  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v2.3.1
by: mitch0 [More]
Bazooka is a Data Broker Display similar in functionality and looks to FuBar.

Featrue highlights
  • Top/Bottom alignment or free moving of bars.
  • Left-click drag moves, right-click drag resizes the bar (unless the frames are locked).
  • Drag-and-drop plugin placement with highlighted drop positions.
  • Configurable background / font / icon size.
  • The usual options for data broker displays (show text/icon/label, optionally show title in place of label if it's missing).
  • Support of iconCoords and icon[RGB] (TomTom arrow, for example).
  • Left / Center-Left / Center / Center-Right / Right placement position for plugins within bars, allowing easy layout of plugins. Plugins placed in the Center area are centered as a bunch.
  • Optional auto-fade while in combat / out of combat.
  • Optionally disable mouse / tooltips.
  • Optional simple tooltips (just show title if Alt is held while moving the mouse pointer over the plugin).
  • Optional highlight on mouseover for the active plugin.
  • Load-on-demand configuration options, small memory footprint for "standard" operation.
  • Bulk mode configuration that allows configuring multiple bars/plugins easily.
  • Restrict plugin text width (since 1.8.3)

Note for v1.8.0: Multiple top/bottom bars are attached to each other now, no need to fiddle with the tweak anchor settings. As a side effect, previous tweak settings are reset, so if you needed those to get rid of the 1-pixel-gap, set it again for your top bar. Sorry about that.
Usage

Getting started
  • Create new bars from the main options window
  • Drag plugins to desired location
  • Drag plugins off bars to disable them

Using the bulk configuration (standard method)
  1. Uncheck Auto-apply.
  2. Check the bars/plugins you want the settings to apply to.
  3. Check Apply next to the settings you want to change, and set them to the value you need.
  4. Click Apply at the bottom of the options. The changes you selected will be applied to all selected bars/plugins at this point.

Using the bulk configuration (auto-apply method)
  1. Check Auto-apply.
  2. Check the bars/plugins you want the settings to apply to.
  3. Change the settings (or click the Apply text next to them if their current value is the one you want). The changes will be applied immediately to all selected bars/plugins.


Slash commands

/bazooka - open configuration
/bazooka locked - toggle locked/unlocked state

Detailed configuration options
This change log is outdated. See the auto-generated logs on Curse for recent changes.

v1.8.7:

- use Default profile instead of Character profile by default
- added option to tweak anchor positions
- enabled workaround for embedded icons not using effective alpha value
- added option to fit detached bars to their content's width (ticket-5)

I'm waiting for some translations for the new options, then I'll push out a new release with the fix.

maybe I'm wrong... is the overlapping part as large as the icon?
but tony hide's the icons...

returns a GetWidth on a CreateFontString-element different results by use of different fonts?
ok I'm definitely too tired... Bed I come

Unfortunately the logic that re-enables plugin updates are only present in the "fadeIn()" function, and that's why you needed to mouseover the bars.

Will try to fix it today. Could you test that indeed the "fade out of combat" setting is causing the issue? (I don't have an active subscription now so can't really test pet battles)

Odd, I disabled all addons except Bazooka and Broker_Microclock, and it still happened. But after wiping Bazooka's saved variables the bar updates fine after finishing a pet battle. Will configure Bazooka again and see if it still persists.

edit: I've uploaded a backup copy of my Bazooka.lua saved variable if you want to see if you can spot anything causing it: http://pastebin.com/S8Bbjkyq

Well, that definitely Shouldn't Happen (tm)... Does the bar become visible after the pet battle with "old" plugin texts and no updates until you mouseover, or the bar stays hidden until you mouseover? Also, are you running the latest version of Bazooka (v2.3.0)?

Hello,

Do you hide your bars during a pet battle? Do you have any error reporting addons (like bugsack) installed? Are there any errors reported when the pet battle is over?

cheers,
mitch
