Invite Notifier

I have searched, and not found any addon that does this - and I would imagine it is pretty easy to code. But, obviously, I know diddly squat about coding.

I would like an Addon that I can enter a list of my other characters, and that will just send a whisper notifying me when that char gets a group invite.

With the new random heroic system, I would like to queue up my character, and then level one of my alts while I'm waiting for an invite.

Should be simple, and it doesn't seem to be around.

Are we talking multiple accounts here?

I think the new LFD feature has a sound clip that plays, I guess you could get an addon that registers an "on-event" and sends a tell to your currently played character, probably best to be a set and forget.

Right, I play on two accounts, so I put one on LFG queue, and play my alt on another one. So instead of multitasking back and forth all the time to check for an invite, it would be awesome if the char could just "/w <my other char> Yo gimp, got a group invite for you!"

Except I only hear sound from the WoW that is maximized, so I wouldn't notice that.

Turn on the sound setting that allows for background then.

Hmm, sounds possible .. lets see.

Event to watch : "PARTY_INVITE_REQUEST"

If Event is caught, send whisper to chosen named person with the information.
Or ...

If event is caught, send http://www.wowwiki.com/API_SendAddonMessage which generates a "CHAT_MSG_ADDON" event which could then be trapped to display a message in the middle of the screen instead. This of course would work if you were using the same install or had the addon in both installations.

I'll leave it here for anyone that might want to do this if it doesn't already exist and I'll forget about it until the OP mentions that they still haven't found anything after a week or two.

That event does not catch if the frame is shown or not. But I got something worked up for Eziquiel that will send a message to whomever he wants it to.

Ah cool, great. It's not something I have played with so I was just basing it on what sounded plausible. Hopefully it is what they want

Yeah hopefully, I tried the event you suggested at first and when that didn't work, I looked on the wiki and did not find any event that would work...so I put in a OnUpdate that looks to see if the frame is shown and sends a message every 1 minute.
