Question Prevent Auction Purchase (of companions)

Hello.
I remember the function of an addon, but not the name.

The addon would tell you if a companion pet that you hovered over could be bought from a vendor (and the price at the vendor, if I remember correctly).

I seem to remember that the icon for this addon was something like a whistle, but that could be wrong.
The addon put itself out there to prevent people from purchasing, on the auction house, pets that could be bought from a vendor.
Now I sell some vendor pets and so I understand that there is a profit to be made, but I would still like to find this addon again.

Does it strike a chord with anyone / does anyone remember it?
Thanks.

The only one I can think of (or find in under 5 minutes of searching) is Swindler Preventer but it hasn't been updated since 2012 so I'm not sure how useful it would be today, or if it even supports battle pets (as opposed to items that teach battle pets).

That was / is the one.

I guess, to update, would require a bit more LUA knowledge than I have.

It was a good resource.

Fingers crossed, it gets picked up again.

Thanks.

Actually, if you just want to know that a pet is available from a vendor, as opposed to knowing which specific vendor it's available from, that would be pretty easy, since you can get information about pet sources through the pet journal API. Just scan the journal, find a name match, and check if the source text includes the word "vendor".

For items that teach pets, that have different names than the pets they teach, feel free to use the item->species table I've compiled for BetterBattlePetTooltip.

Knowing the specific vendor would be a bonus, but knowing it's from a vendor would be the main thing.
Perhaps an addon could be created to simply show the source ("vendor", "drop", "[profession]", etc), rather than which source. That could always be built upon in the future.

Thanks for the addon info.
