Zork your code is really cool but surely too much complex for a newbie programmer like me :-)

Slowly I have finished my alpha version of the addons, but I am plenty of questions. So I try to ask for finding more help.

I upload a picture which represent a ganklist. I'd like to click on a name, this set the text in the text input and then I can press del to delete it from the list or add a new name to it.

Now I'd like to ask.

1) in the frame I have created I have the button text that are "centered" ... I am trying to let them left justify but none of the methods I used till now seems to work.

2) Is possible to let the buttons to react to the OnClick event ? Something like:
button:SetScript("OnClick", function() ... bla bla

3) Is possible to have the scrollframe "bordered" like the input box below ?

4) How can I make a orizontal bar for divide the zones of a frame ?


The code is now:

Lua Code:
  1. -- Configuration Panel -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  2.  
  3. local options = CreateFrame("Frame", ADDON.."Options", InterfaceOptionsFramePanelContainer)
  4. options.name = GetAddOnMetadata(ADDON, "Title") or ADDON
  5. InterfaceOptions_AddCategory(options)
  6.  
  7. local title = options:CreateFontString("$parentTitle", "ARTWORK", "GameFontNormalLarge")
  8. title:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 16, -16)
  9. title:SetText(options.name)
  10. options.title = title
  11.  
  12. local subtext = options:CreateFontString("$parentSubText", "ARTWORK", "GameFontHighlightSmall")
  13. subtext:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", title, "BOTTOMLEFT", 0, -8)
  14. subtext:SetPoint("RIGHT", -32, 0)
  15. subtext:SetHeight(32)
  16. subtext:SetJustifyH("LEFT")
  17. subtext:SetJustifyV("TOP")
  18. subtext:SetText(GetAddOnMetadata(ADDON, "Notes"))
  19. options.subtext = subtext
  20.  
  21. local enable = CreateFrame("CheckButton", "$parentEnable", options, "InterfaceOptionsCheckButtonTemplate")
  22. enable:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", subtext, "BOTTOMLEFT", -2, -8)
  23. enable.Text:SetText(ENABLE)
  24. enable.tooltipText = "Enable monitoring"
  25. enable:SetChecked(REMGANK_ENABLE);
  26. enable:SetScript("OnClick", function(self)
  27.    
  28.     if enable:GetChecked() then
  29.         REMGANK_ENABLE = 1
  30.         print(string_format("%s: is enabled", prgname))

Hi all,

continuing with experiment I have fixed some of the previous iussues.

2) Is possible to let the buttons to react to the OnClick event ? Something like:
button:SetScript("OnClick", function() ... bla bla
Now it works. I let it working removing:

Lua Code:
  1. scrollFrame:EnableMouse(true)
  2. scrollFrame:Show()

from the scrollframe definition.


1) in the frame I have created I have the button text that are "centered" ... I am trying to let them left justify but none of the methods I used till now seems to work.
I have used a different approach here... I used different templates for buttons so I justified them leaving the text centered. Later I'll try to understand how to make a left justified button text :-)


3) and 4) are still under investigation :-) but now not are so important now :-)


But now I have a different problem.
The scrollframe seems to loose the first (or the last) position.

I'll explain better with a picture.



The same iussue happens for the last item. Is it intended that the slider works in this way (it seems to me inverse) ??


Thanks very much for attention to everyone.

EDIT: I attach also a picture and the code of the (almost) finished addon.

Code:
button:GetFontString():SetJustifyH("LEFT")
However, depending on the template used, you may need to adjust the font string's points as well. For example, if the font string is anchored by its CENTER point to the button's CENTER point, left-aligning the text will make it start in the center of the button, so you'd need to do something like this:

Code:
local fontstring = button:GetFontString()
fontstring:ClearAllPoints()
fontstring:SetPoint("LEFT", button, 8, 0)
fontstring:SetPoint("RIGHT", button, -8, 0)
fontstring:SetJustifyH("LEFT")

Not if the fontstring has a width set, iirc.

Thanks Phanx and Seerah for answers.

I have checked the Phanx code and it works nicely (the 2nd bigger one) but I think I'll leave the button as they are now, because it doesn't work with all buttons templates or with no template at all.
Btw finally I understood how it works. As usual it was a little bit more complicated then I thought :-)

Ok. In the meantime I have solved also the question nr.3 I asked:

3) Is possible to have the scrollframe "bordered" like the input box below ?
I checked the rtest by Zork (thanks) and I have discovered the Templates world :-)

Now I am investigating why the scrollframe works nicely in the test addon I make following the Lombra suggestion/code posted at the beginning of this thread, while it have the problem I have pointed out with the picture when I build the scrollist array from my data.

If I used something like:

Lua Code:
  1. RemGankLS = { "qui", "quo", "qua", etc etc }

It works as expected and I don't have the iussue shown in the picture.

But I have a table in this way saved:

Lua Code:
  1. RemGankDB = {
  2.     ["qui"] = {
  3.         ["name"] = "qui",
  4.         ["date"] = "06.01.2013 19:28:24",
  5.         ["desc"] = "generic ganker",
  6.         ["lastloc"] = "Massiccio del Kun-Lai/Presidio del Fuoco Yongqi",
  7.         ["nrkill"] = 1,
  8.     },
  9.     ["quo"] = {
  10.         ["name"] = "quo",
  11.         ["date"] = "03.02.2013 17:35:10",
  12.         ["desc"] = "generic ganker",
  13.         ["lastloc"] = "Vallata dell'Eterna Primavera/Volta di Guo-Lai",
  14.         ["nrkill"] = 1,
  15.     },
  16.     ["qua"] = {
  17.         ["name"] = "qua",
  18.         ["date"] = "09.02.2013 10:57:16",
  19.         ["desc"] = "generic ganker",
  20.         ["lastloc"] = "Valle dei Quattro Venti/Mezzocolle",
  21.         ["nrkill"] = 1,
  22.     },
  23.        
  24.       --- etc etc
  25. }

So to use a number reference to the records for the scrollframe I was not able to find a better solution of doing something like this:

Lua Code:
  1. function RemGank_DB_Dump()
  2.     RemGankLS = {}
  3.     for name in pairs(RemGankDB) do    
  4.         name = name:lower()
  5.         if RemGankDB[name]["name"] then
  6.             table.insert(RemGankLS, RemGankDB[name]["name"])
  7.         end
  8.     end
  9.     -- Sort the list alphabetically
  10.     table.sort(RemGankLS)  
  11. end

And everything works but the slider have the problem I show.

Someone have an idea on why it happens or if the problem is the dumping how to call this code :

Lua Code:
  1. function RemGank_ListFrame_Update(self)
  2.     local numItems = #RemGankLS
  3.     FauxScrollFrame_Update(self, numItems, NUM_BUTTONS, BUTTON_HEIGHT)
  4.     local offset = FauxScrollFrame_GetOffset(self)
  5.     for line = 1, NUM_BUTTONS do
  6.         local lineplusoffset = line + offset
  7.         local button = buttons[line]
  8.         if lineplusoffset <= numItems then
  9.             button:SetText(RemGankLS[lineplusoffset])
  10.             button:Show()
  11.         else
  12.             button:Hide()
  13.         end
  14.     end
  15. end
  16.  
  17. -- [...]
  18.  
  19. for i = 1, NUM_BUTTONS do
  20.     local button = CreateFrame("Button", nil, scrollFrame:GetParent(), "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  21.     if i == 1 then
  22.         button:SetPoint("TOP", scrollFrame)
  23.     else
  24.         button:SetPoint("TOP", buttons[i - 1], "BOTTOM")
  25.     end
  26.     button:SetNormalFontObject("GameFontNormal")
  27.     button:SetSize(BUTTON_WIDTH, BUTTON_HEIGHT)
  28.     button:SetText(RemGankLS[i])
  29.     button:SetScript("OnClick", function(self)
  30.         RemGank_Input_eb2:SetText(button:GetText())
  31.         info_name:SetText(button:GetText())
  32.         info_desc:SetText(RemGankDB[button:GetText()]["desc"])
  33.         info_loc_title:SetText("Last Kill:")
  34.         info_date:SetText(RemGankDB[button:GetText()]["date"])
  35.         info_loc:SetText(RemGankDB[button:GetText()]["lastloc"])
  36.         info_kills_title:SetText("Tot.Kills:")
  37.         info_kills:SetText(RemGankDB[button:GetText()]["nrkill"])
  38.     end)
  39.     buttons[i] = button
  40. end

without the need of dumping the first table RemGankDB (referenced by name) to RemGankLS (indexed by numbers) ?

Thanks for patience and sorry again about all these questions.

Next to Slider, Button, ScrollFrame templates there are "Frame" template.

You are probably looking for sth like a DialogBoxTemplate.

Check:
http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...54&postcount=1

You will find a pretty deep list of Frame templates. Try them out. I would start with "UIPanelDialogTemplate". You can actually combine templates.

Thus you can do this:

Lua Code:
  1. local sf = CreateFrame("ScrollFrame", "MYSCROLLFRAMENAME", UIParent, "UIPanelScrollFrameTemplate, UIPanelDialogTemplate")

That works for all templates that do not counterfit each other. One template my do artwork, the other may do functional stuff etc.

I'm having a similar issue where the first action after the scroll frame is shown isn't updating the offset correctly. I'll show the frame, scroll, the slider will move, but the offset will stay at zero. If I hide the frame and re-show it, the offset updates correctly.

Example:

Offset at zero (slider is at the top)
scroll down
Offset at zero
scroll down
Offset at 15
scroll up
Offset at 30
scroll up
Offset at 15 (slider is at the top)
scroll down
Offset at zero

In the middle of my list you can do this:
scroll down
Offset at 75
scroll up
Offset at 90
scroll down
Offset at 75
scroll up
Offset at 90

I copied the code from another addon I wrote and it works correctly there, but in the new addon I'm getting this very very weird behavior.

It appears the slider is following the mouse movement, but the offset is one cycle behind. Any ideas how this is happening?

Well I found a solution, but I still don't understand why it's doing this. Ended up doubling up the function calls in the OnVerticalScroll handler.

Lua Code:
  1. <ScrollFrame name="LivestockCritterMenuScrollFrameTemplate" inherits="FauxScrollFrameTemplate" virtual="true">
  2.         <Anchors>
  3.             <Anchor point="TOPLEFT">
  4.                 <Offset>
  5.                     <AbsDimension x="0" y="-8"/>
  6.                 </Offset>
  7.             </Anchor>
  8.             <Anchor point="BOTTOMRIGHT">
  9.                 <Offset>
  10.                     <AbsDimension x="-30" y="8"/>
  11.                 </Offset>
  12.             </Anchor>
  13.         </Anchors>
  14.         <Scripts>
  15.             <OnVerticalScroll>
  16.                 FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, 15, Livestock.BuildMenu("CRITTER"));
  17.                 FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, 15, Livestock.BuildMenu("CRITTER"));
  18.             </OnVerticalScroll>
  19.         </Scripts>
  20.     </ScrollFrame>

Lua Code:
  1. function Livestock.BuildMenu(kind) -- type is a string, either "CRITTER", "LAND", "FLYING", or "WATER"
  2.     kind = string.upper(kind)
  3.     local token = buildtable[kind].token -- buildtable contains references and variables that are specific to each type of menu, indexed by the same string as the variable type
  4.     local settings, mounts, critters = LivestockSettings.Mounts
  5.    
  6.     Livestock.RecycleTable(mountstable)
  7.     Livestock.RecycleTable(critterstable)
  8.    
  9.     if kind == "CRITTER" then
  10.         critters = 0 -- reset critters to 0 so we can start counting critters
  11.         settings = LivestockSettings.Critters
  12.         for k in orderedPairs(settings) do -- Check the list of critters, increment critters, and add the index of the critters to critterstable
  13.             critters = critters + 1
  14.             tinsert(critterstable, settings[k].index)
  15.         end
  16.        
  17.     elseif kind == "LAND" then
  18.         mounts = 0 -- reset mounts to 0 so we can start counting land mounts
  19.         for k in orderedPairs(settings) do -- Check the list of mounts, increment mounts, and add the index of the mounts to mountstable
  20.             if (settings[k].type == "land") then
  21.                 mounts = mounts + 1
  22.                 tinsert(mountstable, settings[k].index)
  23.             end
  24.         end
  25.  
  26.     elseif kind == "FLYING" then -- code is the same for flying mounts with the appropriate changes; perhaps this could be a function call?
  27.         mounts = 0
  28.         for k in orderedPairs(settings) do
  29.             if (settings[k].type == "flying") then
  30.                 mounts = mounts + 1
  31.                 tinsert(mountstable, settings[k].index)
  32.             end
  33.         end
  34.

  36.         mounts = 0
  37.         for k in orderedPairs(settings) do
  38.             if (settings[k].type == "water") then
  39.                 mounts = mounts + 1
  40.                 tinsert(mountstable, settings[k].index)
  41.             end
  42.         end
  43.     end
  44.    
  45.     local menuframe = _G["Livestock"..token.."Menu"] or CreateFrame("Frame","Livestock"..token.."Menu", LivestockMenuFrame, "LivestockBlueFrameTemplate") -- make the background of the menu (or reference it if it already exists), naming it with the proper token and number
  46.     local scrollframe = _G["Livestock"..token.."MenuScrollFrame"] or CreateFrame("ScrollFrame", "Livestock"..token.."MenuScrollFrame", menuframe, "Livestock"..token.."MenuScrollFrameTemplate")
  47.     scrollframe:Show()
  48.  
  49.     local header
  50.     if kind == "CRITTER" then
  51.         header = "LivestockCritterMenuButton"
  52.     elseif kind == "LAND" then
  53.         header = "LivestockLandMountMenuButton"
  54.     elseif kind == "FLYING" then
  55.         header = "LivestockFlyingMountMenuButton"
  56.     elseif kind == "WATER" then

Thanks very much for you clues.

Lua Code:
  1. -- [...]
  2. RemGank_conf_scrollFrame:SetScript("OnVerticalScroll", function(self, offset)
  3.     FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, BUTTON_HEIGHT, RemGank_ListFrame_Update(self))
  4.     FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, BUTTON_HEIGHT, RemGank_ListFrame_Update(self))
  5. end)

It works and fixes the wrong offset problem. It is not a beautifull solution, but at least it is a working one :-)

Thanks again.

To FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll you should pass your update function, not its return value. (which is nil)
Code:
FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, BUTTON_HEIGHT, RemGank_ListFrame_Update(self))
becomes
Code:
FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, BUTTON_HEIGHT, RemGank_ListFrame_Update)

In my case I was actually trying to pass a value to another function, but it looks like FauxScrollFrame doesn't like that. I changed the code to this and it's working correctly again.

Lua Code:
  1. <ScrollFrame name="LivestockCritterMenuScrollFrameTemplate" inherits="FauxScrollFrameTemplate" virtual="true">
  2.         <Anchors>
  3.             <Anchor point="TOPLEFT">
  4.                 <Offset>
  5.                     <AbsDimension x="0" y="-8"/>
  6.                 </Offset>
  7.             </Anchor>
  8.             <Anchor point="BOTTOMRIGHT">
  9.                 <Offset>
  10.                     <AbsDimension x="-30" y="8"/>
  11.                 </Offset>
  12.             </Anchor>
  13.         </Anchors>
  14.         <Scripts>
  15.             <OnVerticalScroll>
  16.                 FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, 15, Livestock.CritterMenuUpdate)
  17.             </OnVerticalScroll>
  18.         </Scripts>
  19.     </ScrollFrame>

Lua Code:
  1. function Livestock.CritterMenuUpdate()
  2.     Livestock.BuildMenu("CRITTER")
  3. end

Thanks Lombra. It works like a charm now :-)

I have tried to convert the xml approach to lua code but I didn't succeded.
They there. I wrote a complete Scroll Frame example on another forum of this website that will provide you with all of the code you're after, and an explanation:

Tutorials & Other Helpful Info

I hope you find it as useful as was intended
