PetInstance
Version: 13
by: kergoth [More]
PetInstance - ChangeLog and Git Repository
A little addon to change pet ability autocast states and aggression (passive, defensive, aggressive) on entering an instance/battleground and revert back to their previous states on leaving the instance.

The addon has seperate settings for battlegrounds from instances, and has a "persist" behavior which one can toggle. When "persist" is enabled, it will re-apply the settings every time you hit the macro in question, otherwise it does it just once upon zoning into the instance. WIth it disabled, one could change the pet's behavior after zoning and it will stay that way, so you can override the addon. With it enabled, you can do a /autocaston Growl in your (if BM) Intimidation macro, and it'll stay that way until you send the pet to the next mob, which is helpful for quick offtanking, to grab a loose mob.

Defaults:
Growl off in instances and battlegrounds both.
Other autocast for pet spells are left as is.
Aggressive in battlegrounds.
Passive in instances.

Usage:
Configurable either via the Interface Options menu or /peti or /petinstance.
Add '/click PetInstanceButton' to a macro you use regularly (I use my pet attack macro).
13:
- Use AceDialog-3.0 to inject our options into the blizzard interface options.
- Make the slash command open the options via the interfaceoptionsframe.
- Update toc interface version for 2.4.
12:
- Fix some bugs related to doing a reloadui or relog.
11:
- Update embedded libraries.
10:
- Treat arena like battlegrounds.
9:
- Don't add the pet abilities section to the options dialog until we've
seen a pet.
- Simplify the db handling.
8:
- Added seperate aggression and autocast options for battlegrounds vs
regular instances, as I got sick of it setting my pet to passive in bg.
7:
- Fix copy/paste bug resulting in the autocast options only toggling
between true/false, not true/false/nil.
6:
- Fix a bug in the set() method for the Temporary option (would error if
you clicked temporary while in an instance).
5:
- Add 'Aggression' option, to change pet aggression in instances.
- Change the 'Temporary' option on the fly, so you don't have to zone out
of the instance and back in after changing the option to see the change.
4:
- Fix bug with pet ability scanning when you first login (I'd thought I
fixed this previously, but I guess not. In previous versions, you'd
have to /console reloadui, or dismiss the pet, to get it to pick up the
abilities).
3:
- Add 'Temporary' option, which re-applies your autocast settings every
time, rather than only the first time, when in an instance.
- Fixed bug with pet ability autocast state checking, it was incorrectly
picking up all the abilities as autocasting, so enabled them all when
leaving the instance.
2:
- Add some missing embedded libraries so it works without standalone Ace3.
1:
- Initial Release.

Just in case this trips anyone up: in your description, you mention using /autocaston Growl. The command is actually /petautocaston Growl.

Great add-on, btw. Will try it out more tonight. I was about to write this add-on, but you've done more than what I needed. Love it!

Small nitpick, when you change Pet Aggression settings the drop down menu isn't on top of the Autocast Config settings and is hard to see. Seems to be working fine other wise.

I'll try some more later. EDIT: The mod is using my old settings and working however, its just the options window borked atleast for me.
Argh, my fault. I had a newer Ace3 library installed standalone. I'll upload a version with a newer embedded lib.

Thanks for the report.

Trying Version 7 right now, I'll let you know how it is in a few minutes.

EDIT: Seems to be working 100% so far from testing inside Stockade.

I'm not able to reproduce this.. I did find a bug where the autocast config checkboxes were only switching between off and on, no toggle to tell it to not mess with that ability at all.. but it seems to be functioning here, at least in testing on my bank (17 lock) in the instance in Orgrimmar. I'll mess with my hunter in another few instances to be certain, and release a new version to fix the config checkboxes.

It scans what pet abilities can be autocasted, so Thunderstomp should show up fine, if you pull up the config with that pet out. Have you tested it and seen a problem? If so, I'll go tame a pet with thunderstomp and test.

Also, how about some FuBar support?
Fubar to open the configuration panel? I suppose I could write a seperate little addon to add a button to the panel to do so.
