FuBar - Critter InFu
Version: v2.1.1
by: Kayde [More]
Introduction
This is a port to FuBar of my "Doppelganger Critter Info" addon.

This addon was created to replace the PetXPBar addons that I have used in the past, most of them were full of bugs and broke with every patch. I have (hopefully) created a solidified Pet XP Bar that will withstand the test of time!


Features
FOR HUNTERS (See pictures for details):
  • 1) Adds your pets Name, Level, and XP percentage to the FuBar header. These can be toggled on and off via the right click menu. [picture #1]

    2) When mousing over the title, a tooltip pops up with TONS of info about your pet including: Experience, Basic Information, Attributes, Combat Info, Pet Skills, and your "Herd" (your current and stabled pets). [picture #2]

    3) LEFT clicking the title will open your beast training window for easy access to updating your pets skills (saves at least one valuable hotbar spot).

    4) RIGHT clicking the title will display a drop down menu with submenu options for all the controls of the tooltip and header displays. You can control how much information you desire to see. The addon is built in such a way that if you don't want something to be shown, toggling it off will save the resources that would normally go toward the calculations for those categories. [picture #3]

    5) If toggled on via the "Other Options" menu (and if you use the Cartographer addon (why aren't you?)), you can auto-save note locations for every stable master that you visit. There is no default listing at this time (possibly available in a later release). This information is shared across your whole account, so if you have two hunters (like an alliance and horde hunter), both will benefit from the listing. [picture #4]
FOR WARLOCKS (See pictures for details):
  • 1) Adds your minions Name and it's Creature Type to the FuBar title. This can be toggled on or off via the right click menu. [some in picture #1]

    2) When mousing over the title, a tooltip pops up with TONS of info about your pet including: Attributes, Combat Info, and your Pet's Skills (if you have the Demonic Knowledge talent). [some in picture #2]

    3) LEFT clicking the title will open your pet's spell book. I couldn't think of anything else that could be tied in logically to a left click (and was allowed by the Blizzard API).

    4) RIGHT clicking the title will display a drop down menu with submenu options for all the controls of the tooltip and header displays. You can control how much information you desire to see. The addon is built in such a way that if you don't want something to be shown, toggling it off will save the resources that would normally go toward the calculations for those categories. [picture #3]


Commands
"/cif" or "/critterinfu"
No options but the basics here. The plugin works automatically.

Please send all requests, complaints, praises, and bug reports to my author portal: http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.php?&uid=17813


Future Changes
None at this time, but I'm always looking for ways to improve.


Credits
Wow! Where to begin! First my older history:
I have installed and deleted so many of these pet info addons over my time of playing, that I have lost many names of people that should be rightfully thanked. However, most of the code was drawn from Mark Murray's "PetXPBar". His organization drew me to his addon above all the others.
I also based this entire plugin on the work done by Corgi and his FuBar - PetInfo. Thanks for porting over Hemco's Titan plugin Corgi!
But when I sought to port this to Ace2.0 and Fubar2.0, I looked to the other pet info addons out there and put my own spin on their works. For this I owe a TON of thanks to the following authors:
Jayhawk [Fubar_PetInfoFu]: I used his addons LUA to restructure my entire addon from. Essentially, he laid all the groundwork!
Ricowan [Fubar_PetFu]: I ported several of his features to my addon.
Kemayo [Fubar_PetInFu]: I ported several of his features to my addon as well.
These gentlemen are due the real credit here, all I've done is combine what I feel are the best parts of each of their addons into a single addon that gives me a more organized feel and is written in the most efficient way possible (yes I cleaned up some of the redundant code they used).


Changes
v2.1.1 - UPDATE (May 28, 2007)
I had uploaded a new version without the libraries/externals. Fixed! thank you Henchen and lauramarie for the bug report!
v2.1 - UPDATE (May 26, 2007)
Code cleanup mostly. Minor buggy items fixed.
v2.0 - UPDATE (May 15, 2007)
So many updates that I will not list them all here! I have NOT tested this with the upcoming 2.1 patch, but I will update it again if for some odd reason it breaks.
v1.1 - UPDATE (July 10,2006)
Updated the Defense rating to reflect the proper number. Prior to this, I had stapled in an "888" to judge the size of the text. <BLUSH>
v1.0 - RELEASE (July 7,2006)
Offical first Stable release. No issues found in my own testing.

icon not showing if no text displayed?

If I only choose to have the icon displayed for Fubar_CrittenInFu, it doesn't show up on logon. I usually have to find the invisible icon and mouseover it to check the "Show Text" option. Once I do that, the icon does show. From there, unchecking that option allows the icon to show for the rest of the session. If I change characters or logoff/logon, the icon fails to show up again. No lua errors occur as a result of this - just a missing icon if no text is displayed.

It happens on summon and I get it too.

@ Brovin:

I'll need more information if I am able to delve into what might be causing the conflict. A true bug reports needs the following information:

1) Error (if applicable)
2) What you were doing at the time of the occurrence (if it was present from sign-in, then please state so).
3) What options you had enabled (if you had the default options only, then state so).
4) What other Fubar addons you were running at the time of the incident.
5) Any other information that might SEEM unrelated (for example - you just finished zoning into an instance, you used your hearthstone, you died, you started/finished a flightpath, etc.)

FuBar Issue

I have the problem that the icon isn't showing up on FuBar. I can however get the tooltip up through the command line.

Thank you for the kind comments!

I had hoped to be able to continue the use of left clicking the title bar to call, heal, revive, and dismiss your pet like I use to have, but alas, Blizzard has protected those actions from occurring.

Fuzzylogic does this for me now, and I'm glad to have those functions tied logically to a single keybind.

If anyone can think of further features that might benefit this mod, just holler and I'll do what I can to add them to it.

From #2 under the Features for Hunters:
2) When mousing over the title, a tooltip pops up with TONS of info about your pet including: Experience, Basic Information, Attributes, Combat Info, Pet Skills, and your "Herd" (your current and stabled pets).
In black and white... well gray and off-white.

Stabled pets?

Is "Herd info" a list of pets in the stable?

WoW had taken over all my time and I failed to get this updated since playing a Druid to 70 post TBC, and I ended up letting my Hunter weapons rust at the blacksmith...

But fear not! I have an update planned in the next two days. Basically a combination of all the Fubar pet mods out there, combined to become what I hope to be the ultimate pet companion - for BOTH Hunters and Warlocks.

My lock is now lvl 48, so I have many more features that I can test with him (save felguard functions).
