Would it be possible to play a sound for when a Call to Arms, for your visible roles, becomes active?

stopping and/or throttling the server requests

Love the addon; being able to glance up and see that a reward is being offered is fantastic. The only concern I have is that there are times when I don't want it triggering LFG_UPDATE_RANDOM_INFO and UPDATE_INSTANCE_INFO events so frequently. Other addons I have then start running in response to those events to see if lockout states have changed.

What I'd love to see would be some options that would let you turn off and/or throttle down the frequency of the RequestLFDPlayerLockInfo calls if you're already in a group or inside of an instance. If you're in a group, you can't get reward anyway right? I'm thinking most people aren't going to drop out of their current run or raid because a goodie bag is now available for healers. And if they are, well if its an option then they can let it continue to check.

Along those lines I think it would also be cool to be able to shift click (or something like that) the launcher part to enable/disable it updating.

thanks!

I can't seem to replicate this issue. Does it happen when you queue by yourself or with a premade group? Does it happen when you zone into dungeons from the world, or just using the Dungeon Finder?

Thumbs up License?

What license are you releasing this addon under? All rights reserved, GPL, etc?

I'd like to work on it or possibly fork it for a bigger addon, but want to respect your wishes. I'm new to this so a total re-write wouldn't be something I could start right away - I'm just not that smart.

Would it be possible to have an option for the tooltip to ignore the filters and show all available CtAs?

Tested this and i noticed the icons on the display are very big so im wondering if theres any hope for an alternative display with just letters instead (T, H, D)?

The icons are kinda big compared to the rest of the stuff i have so i had to scale the display down a lot, and i do tend to prefer text over icons.

Other than that it seems really nice sofar

Yeah, wasn't sure what your plans for it were so figured I'd post asking. Great addon btw.

Improvement?

Would it be possible to add in some options to limit which icons are shown on the LDB feed?
I changed part of the Broker_CTA:UpdateLDB function adding the green parts as I'm currently only interesting in seeing if my current toon can queue for a CTA, currently playing a Resto Shaman and have the Healer role checked but don't want to see when it is a CTA for ZG/ZA for healers with them being new and not having done them yet.

Code:
for i = 1,GetNumRandomDungeons() do
  local id, name = GetLFGRandomDungeonInfo(i)
  if name:find("Cataclysm Heroic") then
    for j = 1,LFG_ROLE_NUM_SHORTAGE_TYPES do
      local eligible, forTank, forHealer, forDamage, itemCount = GetLFGRoleShortageRewards(id, j)
      local _, tankQueue, healerQueue, DPSQueue = GetLFGRoles()
      if eligible then unavailable = false end
      if eligible and tankQueue and forTank and itemCount > 0 then tankReward = true end
      if eligible and healerQueue and forHealer and itemCount > 0 then healerReward = true end
      if eligible and DPSQueue and forDamage and itemCount > 0 then dpsReward = true end
    end
  end
end
I'm thinking that with an options panel and saved variables (per character) you could add in a similar check for which roles and instances they want to watch for CTAs from appear in the LDB display (although I'm not entirely sure if that would be possible).

Hopefully I didn't ramble on too long
