[WoWClassic] Sigma ProfessionFilter - AddOn Development
I have been modding other games for a while but now I finally decided to look into how to make WoW addons.
I stumbled upon a very old addon that seems to be abandoned in 2006 and I started playing around to update it. However I got a bit carried away so my version has many more features that were not in the original.
The addon in question is "Sort Enchant Continued", however with my project I aim to expand the functionality to all TradeSkillsFrame and CraftFrame windows.
At this point I'm not ready to release yet but I thought to post this here to get some feedback on the idea and on possible features that could go well with this addon.
Here's some screenshots from the current state of the addon:
1- Separates the Enchanting Recipes into different groups (like all other tradeskills)
2- Allows to open/close each group independently
3- Adds drop down menu to filter the recipes based on the Bonus they provide
4- Adds drop down menu to filter the recipes based on the Slot they enchant
5- Adds a checkbox to group the recipes based on the Bonus they provide
6- Adds a checkbox to group the recipes based on the Slot they enchant
7- Adds a checkbox to hide the recipes that will not provide skill points
8- Adds a checkbox to hide the recipes that lack materials
9- Adds a checkbox to toggle between dropdown menus and search box
the searchbox will show any recipe that matches the filter with:
A- the name of the recipe
B- the enchanted slot
C- the bonus provided
D- any of the reagents
it is also possible to shift-click to get the name of items into the searchbox
eventually I want to expand this to the PetTraining Frame (which uses the same frame as Enchanting) and also to all other professions (that use a different frame)
Thanks in advance to anyone who will take the time to read this
