BuyDropper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.5b
by: ellira, Myster

Hi! I talked with Cogwheel, and got the development of the Buydropper project transferred over. I plan to start working on updating it over the next few weeks so, if anyone has any features requests/bug reports, please contact me via PM or comments on this addon. I'll update this page with the plans and roadmap I have for Buydropper shortly, when I 've had the time to play around with it a bit.

BuyDropper

By Cogwheel — v0.9B5
Inspired by FreeRefills by Kyahx

BuyDropper keeps a list of items to purchase automatically from vendors.

Please visit Cogwheel’s Workshop for updates, bug reports, feature requests, etc.

Guide

Managing your list

Adding items

The first thing you’ll want to do is add an item to BuyDropper’s tracking list. This can be done in two easy ways. By default, every vendor window has a dropper in the upper right and there is also a dropper on BuyDropper’s options window. Simply drag and drop an item onto one of these droppers and a window will appear where you can enter the amount you want to track. When you click Accept or press Enter, BuyDropper will print a message showing the item and quantity added to the list.

The other way to add items is the /buydropper add command. This duality of GUI/slash commands is seen throughout BuyDropper’s operations. For the rest of the guide, I will focus on the GUI aspects. You can use the Reference below to discover how to use the various commands.

[TODO: Rest of the documentation. For now, take a look at /buydropper options and the Reference below]

Reference

These are all the slash commands available from BuyDropper. Typing /buydropper (or /bd) will show this list of commands. Sub-commands are displayed when you enter the main command with no options. E.g. /buydropper vendor will display all the sub-commands of vendor.

addstack

Usage: /buydropper addstack <item link> <number of stacks>

Adds an item to the bottom of your tracking list or changes the amount of an item you are already tracking.

add

Usage: /buydropper add <item link> <amount>

Adds an item to the bottom of your tracking list or changes the amount of an item you are already tracking.

To use this command, type /buydropper add with a space after it. Now shift-click any item at a vendor, in your backpack, on your character, etc. Add another space, and type in the amount of the item you want to track.

list

Usage: /buydropper list

Lists the items you are currently tracking in order of descending priority.

del

Usage: /buydropper del <item link>

Removes the item at the specified priority from your tracking list.

resetall

Usage: /buydropper resetall

Clears all items from your list. A confirmation will appear to make sure you mean it.

Well, BuyDropper v1.5b works fine here buying items from a vendor & adding them to the buy list (tested on a Rogue) in WoW 3.3.5 live. As well as seeing the vendor button without a problem (but see end below). Was tested with the "latest" libraries from WowAce as of this date. Those who say the (meaningless) "its dead", "it throws up errors", etc. might want to be a little more descriptive as to what the problems are on their end.

One problem when using LibDBIcon r15, though (later version than what's included with v1.5b of the mod). Toggling the "MiniMap Button" checkbox throws up the following error and the button never appears:

Code:
["message"] = "LibDBIcon-1.0-15 (LibDBIcon-1.0):237: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)\nBuyDropper-1.5b\\BuyDropper.lua:213: in function <Interface\\AddOns\\BuyDropper\\BuyDropper.lua:211>\n(tail call): ?:\n<in C code>: ?\n<string>:\"safecall Dispatcher[2]\":9: in function <[string \"safecall Dispatcher[2]\"]:5>\n(tail call): ?:\nAceConfigDialog-3.0-50:797: in function <...nfig-3.0\\AceConfigDialog-3.0\\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:612>\n(tail call): ?:\n<in C code>: ?\n<string>:\"safecall Dispatcher[3]\":9: in function <[string \"safecall Dispatcher[3]\"]:5>\n(tail call): ?:\nAceGUI-3.0-33 (Ace3):314: in function `Fire'\n...ns\\Ace3\\AceGUI-3.0\\widgets\\AceGUIWidget-CheckBox.lua:68: in function <...ns\\Ace3\\AceGUI-3.0\\widgets\\AceGUIWidget-CheckBox.lua:57>:\n\n  ---",
            ["type"] = "error",
            ["session"] = 1798,
            ["counter"] = 3,
        }, -- [376]
The error repeats every time you check/uncheck MiniMap Button. None of the other mods using/testing here using LibDBIcon have issues with their minimap buttons.

One other oddity in behavior: the Toggle WorldDropper button in the Add Items option section doesn't actually toggle the dropper. It only turns it on if currently off. No matter how many times you click the button after the dropper is showing onscreen, it never turns off.

You have head to Dropper Options, World Dropper checkbox to actually turn off the dropper. Checking the option makes it appear again.

One thing in reference to the "the drop box on the vendor is not there its just an empty square" issue mentioned by another poster below (haven't seen that problem here yet). If you don't hard code the strata level of the button to, say, HIGH or DIALOG, it has the potential to become hidden/non-visible when opening a vendor, mailbox etc..

Have seen this issue among Broker Garbage (since fixed.worked around), Postal & others after both playing for a period of time and immediately after login. The issue always goes away after relogging, until it happens again.

Love it!

I got tired of the way I had to set items up in my old addon, so, I went looking for something new. I found BD...I'm Addicted! It couldn't get any easier than this...I think I love you! Thanks so much for an awesome add on that makes my life a hella lot easier!


Edit** I posted a day too soon, BD stopped working last night ironicly after I made this post and still is not working today, giving me errors and the drop box on the vendor is not there its just an empty square.

I run all my libraries disembedded so I always forget to modify the Toc back to the embeded version when I release a mod.

Till then just remove LibButtonFacade from the dependencies section of the toc and it will load fine.

Will be doing a new release soon, am working on a couple new features.

New release soon

Am fixing a few minor bugs and adding a new function to compress items after they are retrieved from your bank bags, this will be a toggle option as well.
