Moniker
Version: 1.5.1
by: Chrippa [More]
Moniker is a very simple AddOn that lets you rename your RealID friends! Simply set a note of your friend and it will be displayed instead of the nickname whenever possible.
Sadly this addon does not replace all real names with nicknames due to limitations set by Blizzard, but the friends list, chat messages and toasts should work.

Note about 4.0.1 update!
Blizzard made some changes that prevents addons from accessing the real name of your friends, therefore the addon had to be signifigantly altered.

- Nicknames can now only be stored in notes instead of Saved Variables.
- Many frames that showed the nickname before is now only able to display the real name.


For addon authors!
If you want to integrate nicknames into your addon you can use the following functions instead of their Blizzard equivalent:

Moniker_BNGetFriendInfo
Moniker_BNGetFriendInfoByID

Here is a simple example:
Code:
local BNGetFriendInfo = Moniker_BNGetFriendInfo or BNGetFriendInfo
local pid, firstname, surename = BNGetFriendInfo(i)
But be aware that this will return clear text nickname and not a special Blizzard string.

Use string.gsub instead of string.replace.

This is and still is an awesome addon though there are several bugs now and it would be great with an update or a replacement.

For example: Linking items are hidden in Real ID whispers, Nickname isn't shown when people are logging in.

Any Alternatives?

Are there any alternatives to this, now that 4.0.3 has broken its full functionality?

Update now available. Took some extra time since I was unable to properly test it alone on beta.

It shows the renamed Real ID in the Social Window just fine, but doesn't rename in Prat's chat window (Unsure if it affects other chats) and doesn't rename in Ara's Guild / Friends Broker display.

Are there code adjustments to get things other than the Social Window to show the renamed Real ID? Prat's Chat Entry box reflects the renamed ID, but not what displays in the chat box itself.

Any chance you could integrate this into the autofill as well? For example, now, when I want to whisper or mail someone with a nickname that doesn't match his actual real name, I still have to type his real name for the autocomplete to work.

the problem with the addon storing but not displaying the correct name is happening with me too and i believe is being caused by some other addon.
(it's not happening while all the others addons are disabled)

I will try to find out what addon its causing it and report back =)

Should atleast be optional, as i use notes for other things.

EDIT 2: The original name only appears on the friend list and toast frame, not in the chat window.
same for me
