PointTo Addon

Version: 0.6d
by: Olorin [More]

PointTo was written for my wife whom I duo with so she could find me easily whilst questing etc.

This addon is pretty simple really, it shows an arrow that always points to party member 1 unless you specify a loc/unit that you wish to be directed to.

Commands accepted:

/PT,/pt,/pointto/PointTo - lock (toggles the frame being locked / unlocked)
- on / off (shows or hides addon - now persistant)
- autohide (automatically hides the addon when in a zone that does not support loc's, toggle setting)

You can now enter a loc or a UnitID (party3, raid2, <character name> etc.) into the editbox.
Please note: if the unit entered is not valid due to not being in the group then it will report 'Loc Invalid' this is due to the game engine not allowing you to get locations of people you are not grouped with.

/pt - This will list the valid commands above and show the current status of the addon, ie if autohide is on.


Version Notes: 0.6d Checked and working with WoW 3.3




Feedback/Suggestions welcome

-- Version 0.6b
-- Added PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD to trigger for autohide since some instances change zone before they zone in so it
-- wasnt being triggered this should avoid the frame being shown/hidden incorrectly

-- Version: 0.6a
-- Very small change to avoid a rare occurance of the editbox on the PointTo frame getting focus when you first login to a character

-- Version: 0.6
-- Rewritten to be better dynamicly updated, code tidied somewhat and include the following requested changes:
-- Added autohide feature
-- Persistant addon on/off feature
-- Added ability to enter any valid unitID

-- Version: 0.5 Initial release

Johndu, thanks for your comments but right now I am not playing WoW much and cant really spare the time investment to add this functionality but I will certainly consider adding this feature in future.

Regards,

Olorin

OK, this is pretty great. It can actually replace TomTom for the most part for me, and that is no small feat.

It would be nice if it remembered its off/on setting tho...

Keep up the good work, this is some fine code.

Would be nice if you could set a unit into it instead, like #raid20 or #party4
