Version: 000006
by: Lyelu [More]
These are background panels that can be customized with various gradients, borders, colors and effects. There are three templates, one for dps, one for healing and one for tanking. These graphics are designed for widescreen, high-resolution monitors. To choose your styles, open the options panel in Interface Options.

To reach the options for your Addons, go to "Game Menu: Interface: Addons". In the interface options, you can make a panel for each role: healing, dps and tanking. To switch between roles, type /heal, /dps or /tank. This will also switch your other addons to profiles with those names, if you have created them. To use the addon switch feature, you must create profiles with the exact names "Heal", "DPS", or "Tank". The mod will then switch profiles for you, if the addon is amenable. Some supported mods include: Bartender, Grid and Skada. Mods which don't give access to their profiles should simply do nothing.

For example, if you set up two profiles in Bartender, one named Heal and one named DPS, you can switch profiles with the typed commands. Your buttons will then move at the same time as your background panels, and line up neatly.

Slash Commands:
/rl, to reload your UI, as needed.
/heal, to switch to heal layout.
/dps to switch to dps layout.
/tank to switch to tank layout.

Notes: This project is incompatible with some addons using Ace 2.0. (Ace 3.0 was released 14 Oct 2008.) In particular, if you use AtlasLootFu, please upgrade to AtlasLoot's newest beta version. Alternatively, my Lua is marked with a comment "You can delete from here down," which will disable profile switching, but remove all Ace 2.0 errors.

Note on Memory Usage: Approximately 500k memory usage is applied to whichever addon loads the Ace Libraries first. Additionally, you may see a spike in memory on load, while WoW sorts through Ace library versions to get the most current. Since I have included the most recent version of Ace, you may see that cause extra memory usage when loaded alongside addons with older versions. After a few moments, Tattoo will run at ~85k.

Yes, it doesn't work with Ace 2.0. I had to choose between being backwards-compatible with addons whose libs haven't been updated in 2 years, or having the features I wanted.

You can either:
1. Uninstall Tattoo, or...
2. Get the beta version of AtlasLoot, newly released, which doesn't use Ace2, or...
3. Try updating the 2.0 libraries individually and see if it still works, or...
4. Open my Lua and delete the bottom part where it says "You can delete from here down." That will also disable profile switching, but fix your error.

Doesn't want to work with any of the following addons:

AtlaslootFu
Automaton
FactionsFu
HeyFu
Skillet
Xloot

Shame really.
First line of each error is the same:
1x Tattoo-000004\Tattoo.lua:418: Cannot access key "GetProfiles" in db table. You may want to use db.profile["GetProfiles"]

Seems to be a problem with the AceDB-2.0.

I can probably do that, but at the moment I'm breaking the mod up so it can have skins. Didn't want people downloading 20megs worth of graphics every time I post an update, but I do want to make some more graphics. So, altogether that's going to take me a little while to get to.

Awesome Cheers for the mod too its the most lightweight background/border mod Ive come across that does everything I want it to

Thanks so much,

There seems to be a problem with the Ace Library Configuration.

With only Tattoo running

Code:
Message: ...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:20: Cannot find a library instance of "AceGUI-3.0".
Time: 11/02/10 10:34:52
Count: 1
Stack: [C]: in function `error'
Interface\AddOns\Tattoo\libs\LibStub\LibStub.lua:23: in function `LibStub'
...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:20: in main chunk

Locals: (*temporary) = "Cannot find a library instance of "AceGUI-3.0"."
And the Options panels in the interface addons does not display anything other than the Info Panel.

Hi
I am pretty sure they don't run off the screen, that's just how they look set to 100% width, which is how I set them out in the code. Design intentional, lol. Compare with the screenshots? I do agree, I wasn't satisfied with the layout options available, but I decided to release rather than try to cover everything, to see if the concept works for people in general.

I will add some more options, layouts and graphics later on, when I have the first set of beta code entirely completed. If people like the concept, then later more sets of "skins" can be added.

extra adjustments

Hi, I love this addon but I find some of the images run off the screen and there is no adjustments to move them.
I think it would be great to be able to move the components around a bit.
Also to be able to resize sections to fit our own needs.

Update

There's a function to switch profiles that is breaking it. I'm disabling it until I can get assistance to fix it, so now everything should work except to switch profiles of other mods.
A few minutes to update it.

Hm

Is this a stand alone or does it require another 3rd party utility to run?

I downloaded and installed in the interface folder. I saw that it had loaded from the character select screen, entered the realm and came up with a database error. Tho the addon could be seen and interacted with in the interface menu, there are no graphics displayed on my UI.

I like what you have done and would like to see it work.

Thank you
