TabBinder
Version: 1.02
by: Veev [More]
TabBinder will automatically change your tab key binding to only target enemy players when in PvP zones, and to target all enemies when not.

Despite it being named "TabBinder" it will also work for keys other than just tab. First it will check to see if you currently have "target nearest enemy player" bound, if not then it will check for "target nearest enemy" (the default tab behavior). If you have either of those already set then it will use your current key binding to alternate between the two different functionalities, if not then it will resort to tab.

No configuration needed so there is no options menu, just install it and you're good to go. It will switch to "players only" when in arenas, battlegrounds, and Wintergrasp, and when entering a duel. Great for those of us that like to both PvE and PvP... no more tabbing through totems after forgetting to set it, or wondering why you can't change targets in a raid.

Battlegrounds/duels will only work on English clients, sorry.

(Also consider: HiddenRaidNames)
1.02 -- Now works on duels. If your binding fails to update because you were in combat it will now update after leaving combat. Now also changes "previous target" key binding, if you already have it bound it will use your current key binding, if not it will resort to Shift-Tab.

1.01 -- All this version does is remove the chat message notifying you when it changes your key bindings, instead now it will only report if it fails to update for some reason. If you like seeing that message then just stay with the old version, but I personally found it a bit too spammy when doing arenas.

Hi,

could you please upload your version? It seems the author is not updating this addon anymore...

Thx!

upon login I get the following and this mod just does not seem to work anymore

Code:
TabBinder-1.02\TabBinder.lua:2: attempt to index global 'this' (a nil value)
<string>:"*:OnLoad":1: in function <[string "*:OnLoad"]:1>

Locals:
self = TabBinder_Frame {
 0 = <userdata>
}

Will there be an update for this mod? Doesn't appear to work in 4.0 anymore.

Here a locale-independent test for arenas, battlegrounds and Wintergrasp:

Code:
local _, instanceType = IsInInstance()
local mapFilename = GetMapInfo()
if instanceType == "pvp" or instanceType == "arena" or mapFilename == 'LakeWintergrasp' then
  -- "player is in a PvP zone" code
end

I binded Tab for nearest enemy and shift-tab for only enemy players, because sometimes i want to target totems or pets. and then it would be confusing and i need my mouse for camera
but good addon at all

Any way to check for duels?

If not, perhaps you could add Dalaran sewers (or Dalaran in general) to the list of places that get the tab switch done?
