Broker LFG  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.1.55
by: Phanx [More]
Basic LFG button for your DataBroker display.
  • Click to open the Dungeon Finder.
  • Right-Click to open the PVP window.
  • Middle-Click, or Shift-Click, to open the Pet Journal.
  • Alt-Click to open the Raid Finder.
  • Ctrl-Click to open the Scenarios window.
While you are queued, or in an LFG/LFR group, battleground, or scenario, right-click opens the menu instead, and you can use Shift-Right-Click to open the PVP window.

Known Issues

Due to Blizzard restrictions, you will not be able to leave battleground queues while using this addon, except by waiting until the queue pops and clicking the Decline button on the dialog. I have no ETA on a resolution, so don't bother asking, unless you are a Blizzard developer with a solid ETA on when you are going to allow addons to leave battleground queues in response to a hardware event and/or fix your oversensitive dropdown menu system.

Feedback

Post a comment. Please note that I consider this addon to be complete, and will probably not add any new features.

If you are posting about a problem, please include the name of your DataBroker display addon, and the actual error message (without any lists of locals or installed addons) captured by BugSack.

Language Support

Broker LFG is compatible with English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 正體中文 game clients.

Broker LFG is translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 正體中文.

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the Broker LFG localization page on CurseForge, and then send me a PM here or on CurseForge to let me know that you’ve made changes. If you don’t have a Curse account and don’t want to create one, you can PM me your translations instead. Thanks!

That's addressed in the addon description:
Known Issues

Due to Blizzard restrictions, you will not be able to leave battleground queues while using this addon. I have no ETA on a resolution.
There will be no solution until Blizzard changes the API and/or fixes their dropdown menu system. In the meantime, I could suppress the error message, or I could write an entire custom dropdown menu system from scratch that doesn't include the "Leave Queue" function, but neither of those would actually solve the problem.

Either way, you can't leave the queue, because the only way to leave the queue is by using the Blizzard dropdown, but if any addon touches the Blizzard dropdown, or even touches the Blizzard LFG button to which the dropdown is attached, the whole thing is considered "tainted", and secure actions in the dropdown like leaving a queue will not work, period.

However, since you can just queue for other things and ignore the battleground queue when it pops, I don't really consider this to be much of a problem. I will probably just end up removing the "Leave Queue" entry from the menu so people will quit complaining about it and asking when it will be fixed.

Using the newest version of Broker_LFG with DockingStation and Bugsack gives me this error when trying to leave a BG queue. I think you mention further down that this hasn't been fixed yet and may still be a problem on Blizzard's end. Just wanted to poke the fire a little and see.


Code:
15x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn "Broker_LFG" tried to call the protected function "func()".
!BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
<in C code>
FrameXML\QueueStatusFrame.lua:404: in function "func"
FrameXML\UIDropDownMenu.lua:710: in function "UIDropDownMenuButton_OnClick"
<string>:"*:OnClick":1: in function <string>:"*:OnClick":1

Locals:
nil

Thanks a lot for the advice. Far simpler and far better I must admit

Hi and thanks for your addon.

THe latest version (5.2.0.51) does not allow to open a pvp queue.

In order to get it functionnal :

replace the line:
Code:
TogglePVPFrame()
by
Code:
if (PVPUIFrame) then
	ToggleFrame(PVPUIFrame)
else
	LoadAddOn("Blizzard_PVPUI")
	ToggleFrame(PVPUIFrame)
end
If function without any issue on my side.

Regards.

Version 5.2.0.49
  • Updated for WoW 5.2

Battleground queue leaving is still broken, as far as I know; I wasn't able to test on the PTR, so any further investigation will have to wait until the live servers are up.

Okay, I can reproduce it now. It appears that Blizzard has made it impossible for any code ever touched by an addon in any way to leave a battleground queue, so even though the dropdown menu is not altered in any way, the fact that an addon calls the "show menu" function is enough to break it. Unfortunately I have no solution at this time. If you need to leave battlefield queues frequently, this addon will not work for you, sorry.

Edit: I've added a note at the top of the description. Patch 5.2 may solve the problem, as I know Blizzard is doing something with dropdown menus to address the taint problem, but I can't actually test it because at the moment, the Blizzard PVP UI is tainting itself.
Thanks for taking the time to look into it. It figures that they've managed to break something on their end, though. I don't have to leave queues frequently, I just thought I would report the incident. Thanks again.

Try with another Broker display and, if the problem does not occur, report the issue to the author of DockingStation. If it does occcur with Bazooka or some other display, let me know.

Just tried it with Bazooka, newest version from WoW Interface, same error. Had Bazooka, Broker_LFG and BugSack running. All other addons disabled. Only errors for the battleground queue.

I'm on Live, North American region, patch 5.1, English. Doesn't matter what toon I use. I have the current version of broker_LFG and current version of Docking Station (as found on WoW Interface). I get the standard Blizzard taint message when I attempt to leave a queue for a battleground by right clicking and selecting "Leave Queue". I get this with only Broker_LFG and Docking Station enabled.

The following is the BugSack message for this error:

Code:
1x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn "Broker_LFG" tried to call the protected function "func()".
!BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
<in C code>
FrameXML\QueueStatusFrame.lua:404: in function "func"
FrameXML\UIDropDownMenu.lua:710: in function "UIDropDownMenuButton_OnClick"
<string>:"*:OnClick":1: in function <string>:"*:OnClick":1

Locals:
nil
It does NOT generate an error for the dungeon finder "Leave Queue", only the battleground "Leave Queue".
