Broker: XPBar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0 r051
by: burny_dd [More]

Broker: XPBar - Sparkly XP Bars that can be attached anywhere.

Displays Infos about XP and watched Faction and adds bars for XP and/or reputation to your Broker bar addon. Select custom colors for bars or use predefined colors based on standing for the reputation bar.

You can attach the bars to (almost) any frame by click selecting the desired anchor frame with the mouse (similar to Xparky). You can attach the bars to any side of the frame on outside as well as on the inside. Adjust anchor position by setting X- and Y-Offset.

Update for Version 2 -

* New text system for Broker label and bars.
** Provides wide selection of predefined texts for display.
** Custom texts can be freely configured via script API.
* XP and reputation data for completed and incomplete quests.
** Shown in tooltip, in label texts and as bar sections.
** Notifications when completed quests allow to level up when handed in (or to reach the next standing with the watched faction).
* Bar length is now adjustable.
* Bar texts can now be shown side by side. That allows for bigger font sizes especially when XP and reputation bar are shown both.
* Fixed darkened color problem with default addon texture.
* Added option 'No Texture' to display bars just in opaque colors.

NOTE -

* Due to the new text system the old text options have been dumped. Reconfiguring texts for Broker label and bars is required.
* Larger memory footprint mainly due to use of library containing quest reputation reward data since Blizzard broke or scrapped API functions to retrieve that data from quests in log.

Features -

* Attaches bars for XP and/or reputation to (almost) any globally named frame.
* Configure layout of bars: Colors, dimensions, texture.
* Tooltip displays extended information about XP and reputation of currently watched faction.
* Provides data about XP and reputation for completed and incomplete quests in the quest log.
* Notifications when completed quests allow to level up when handed in (or to reach the next standing with the watched faction).
* Customizable texts for bar and Broker label.
* Select texts from predefined selection or define your own texts via script API.
* Provided information includes: Time to Level, Kills to Level, XP/Rep/Kills per Hour,
* Ace3 profile support for settings.

Usage Hints -

* Activating Broker: XPBar in your Broker display will show up the label text in that display only. To display the actual bars you will need to attach them to a frame on your screen first. To do this go to Options->Frame and click the button "Select by Mouse". Select the frame to attach the bars to by left-clicking on it and the bars should show up.

* The mouse cursor gets highlighted and shows the frame name as tooltip for each frame it hovers over. Left-click on desired frame to attach the bars to. Right-click will disable the selection cursor. Frame names may also be entered manually in the edit box. Use the option "Attach to" to select the side (Top or Bottom) of the frame where you want the bars. Fine adjust the position by using the Offset settings if needed.

* If you are trying to attach to a Broker display make sure you hit an empty spot on the display. If you click on another plugin on the display the bars will attach to the frame of this Broker plugin only.

* If you use Docking Station and want to attach to it's panels you need to make sure you have the Global option (Panels -> General) enabled for the panel you want to connect to.

* The "Jostle" option displaces the blizzard frames by the width of the bars. This should only be used with frames on the upper and lower edge of the screen and not with free floating frames!

* Consider that the Reputation bar is hidden if no faction is watched.

Thanks for the info. Just fixed the problem in v1.7 r041. Reason was a typo in one of the last updates.

Best regards

I've selected the frame, for chocolatebar1 (top one), but can't seem to get the exp bar to show up, just the text on the bar above

EDIT: I managed to fix it. I tried to add it to the kgpanels37 that I have above, that didn't work after a reloadui. I tried again to type in ChocolateBar1, and hit okay, and it worked Not sure whats going on there, as the select frame wasn't picking up the name of a frame.

Thanks for the latest update, unfortunately when you updated the version number in the Broker_XPBar.toc you seem to have forgotten to update the Interface number! Could you correct that in the next update please? To be clear, I'm not asking for an update just for that, simply to add it to the list for the next update.

Enhancement request: single bar mode

I just started using this addon and I enjoy it. However, I did have a (somewhat involved) request that I would like for you to consider. It is a single bar mode. Instead of needing to show a separate XP or rep bar, you can show one bar and use mouseover or a click to show the other bar. At max level, it should show rep only if the user chooses to show the bar. Other settings should remain consistent with how Broker: XPBar functions now.

The behavior is essentially similar to XPBarNone without the Data Broker functionality that your addon has - hence the request. If your response is just "Why don't you use XPBarNone instead?", I would completely understand as this is not a simple request. As they say, a closed mouth doesn't get fed so I might as well as ask. Thanks for your time. Keep up the excellent work.

I am using Bazooka as my data broker launcher, and I have Bazooka set to "Low" for the strata. However, I've noticed that XPBar seems to be ignoring the inherited strata. During Pet Battles, the XP highlight bar is passing over the default Blizzard Pet Battle frames. I have mine at the top, but the same would apply to the bottom.

Is anyone experiencing this, too?

Same here with dockingStation. The text and tooltip are working just no bars.
