ChatThrottleLib  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 22
by: mikk [More]
ChatThrottleLib is a small, embeddable library that helps AddOn authors keep outbound chat and addon communication from exceeding the output rate limit in WoW that otherwise causes players to disconnect from the server.

It also has a number of features that will help you make your addon communication run smoother!

I really like the idea of this addon, and I just downloaded it. Previously, I was using an OnUpdate handler to send bulk messages every 0.25 seconds, but that seemed a bit slow and also potentially unsafe.

The only problem I'm running into with this addon is that I can't figure out how to get my status bar to work with it. Basically, I'm sending a large block of text, split up into several SendAddonMessage lines, and showing a status bar that tracks the progress of the sending. Previously, I was just updating the status bar every time I called the SendAddonMessage function, but with ChatThrottleLib, the sends are delayed.

I figured I should be hooking something, but I'm having trouble figuring out which function to hook. I tried SendAddonMessage and _G.ChatThrottleLib.Hook_SendAddonMessage, but neither of those seem to work.

One issue I had with this is that the embed information (method 2) in the readme file is partially wrong.

The readme says:
* Copy the entire ChatThrottleLib folder to your addon
* Add "ChatThrottleLib/ChatThrottleLib.xml" to your .toc file

but you need to use a "\" instead of a "/" like this:
ChatThrottleLib\ChatThrottleLib.xml

That caused me all kinds of trouble!
