Thanks for adding the option to have the button bar at the top. I have one more request!

Could you make an option so that the coordinates are able to be shown where the time is? I have another addon that puts the time somewhere else.
Thanks for the lovely mod!

I completely appreciate that most of the world has moved on to scroll functionality. I would be far more likely to try this addon out if it had an option for the buttons. Even if it was, by default, turned off.

Regardless, it looks like a sweet addon that would totally replace the mini-button collector I have now. Good luck, and happy coding!

I believe the +/- buttons are default bound to numpad+ and numpad-, which still work

That's fair. I'd probably be able to edit things myself to achieve that functionality for myself so it's not a really big deal.
It might be neat to have it in as an option but I understand why you may not want that.

Thanks for the feedback!

As for the calendar, I was thinking we could have it appear on right-clicking the clock

Yes. I completely missed this. Thanks

Yep. Hadn't bothered to fix this until the upcoming update. Strange behaviour indeed.
My understanding of how they work, which could be completely wrong: The normal texture is the texture for the checkbox, and the checked texture is simply a check mark, layered on top.
At least this would explain the weird behaviour you're seeing here. I think I'll just end up swapping the texture based on the checked status.

So, I'm looking at this, and I quite like the look of it, but I have one (or two) requests.


I don't use any addons that have a minimap button, so my collapsable menu only contains the minimap tracking button and the calendar button, and in general it just looks strange to me to have them grouped with addon buttons.

What if the minimap tracking options were accessed via right-clicking the minimap instead, just like how the +/- buttons have been replaced with mouse wheel scroll functionality? Then the button for it could be hidden entirely.

As for the calendar, I was thinking we could have it appear on right-clicking the clock (which, speaking of, left-clicking on the clock is supposed to bring up the clock settings menu, with the stopwatch and timers and everything, but that's missing right now and might be worth adding in.)


Also, the arrow texture for the icon collector looks really strange. The way it's being done right now, you have both an up and a down arrow overlapping each other once you click on it. The Checked texture shows up as partially transparent, and I'm really not sure why.

I'm not entirely familiar with the inner workings of checkboxes, so there may be a simpler and more straightforward way to fix it, but one way to fix it without requiring major changes would be to make sure that both the Normal and Checked textures remain the same at all times (and you can swap between them in your OnClick handler so the arrow flips up and down when opened and closed. )

If you're interested, this is how I achieve that:

lua Code:
  1. frame.buttonCollectorToggle = CreateFrame("CheckButton", addonName .. "ButtonCollectorToggle", frame)
  2. frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetSize(38, 38)
  3. frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetPoint("TOPRIGHT", -10, -8)
  4. frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetScript("OnClick", function (self, btn, down)
  5.     if ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:IsVisible() then
  6.         if OMM.InformationFrame.Placement == "Bottom" then
  7.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-VEHICLES-BUTTON-PITCHDOWN-UP")
  8.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-VEHICLES-BUTTON-PITCHDOWN-UP")
  9.         elseif OMM.InformationFrame.Placement == "Top" then
  10.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-Vehicles-Button-Pitch-Up")
  11.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-Vehicles-Button-Pitch-Up")
  12.         end
  13.         ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:Hide()
  14.     else
  15.         if OMM.InformationFrame.Placement == "Bottom" then
  16.             ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:ClearAllPoints()
  17.             ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:SetPoint("TOP", frame, "TOP", 0, -47)
  18.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-Vehicles-Button-Pitch-Up")
  19.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-Vehicles-Button-Pitch-Up")
  20.         elseif OMM.InformationFrame.Placement == "Top" then
  21.             ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:ClearAllPoints()
  22.             ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:SetPoint("BOTTOM", frame, "TOP", 0, -10)
  23.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-VEHICLES-BUTTON-PITCHDOWN-UP")
  24.             frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-VEHICLES-BUTTON-PITCHDOWN-UP")
  25.         end
  26.         ns.ButtonCollectorDropdown:Show()
  27.     end
  28. end)
  29.  
  30. function frame:Place()
  31.     if OMM.InformationFrame.Placement == "Bottom" then
  32.         frame:ClearAllPoints()
  33.         frame:SetPoint("TOP", Minimap, "BOTTOM", 0, 5)
  34.  
  35.         frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-VEHICLES-BUTTON-PITCHDOWN-UP")
  36.         frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-VEHICLES-BUTTON-PITCHDOWN-UP")
  37.     elseif OMM.InformationFrame.Placement == "Top" then
  38.         frame:ClearAllPoints()
  39.         frame:SetPoint("BOTTOM", Minimap, "TOP", 0, -30)
  40.  
  41.         frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-Vehicles-Button-Pitch-Up")
  42.         frame.buttonCollectorToggle:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\VEHICLES\\UI-Vehicles-Button-Pitch-Up")
  43.     end
  44. end

It looks a little strange, bloated, and redundant, but as I said this is only a solution I've come up with, and there might be a cleaner and more straightforward way to fix it by preventing the CheckedTexture from being transparent.

Also, the "-Down" textures are for the pressed state of those vehicle buttons (see here, vs the correct one), so using them here makes things look slightly off and jittery.

Yes, others have found this as well. This is a bug and I'm working on a fix.
