Character Notes
Version: 2.0
by: Talryn [More]
Character Notes allows you to set and manage notes on other player's characters. Notes are stored per realm so notes are shared across your characters on a realm. Notes can be set on any character name. The notes are simple and generic and they are not tied to a friend, an ignored character, etc.

Notes are displayed:
* When that character logs on
* When you do a /who on that character
* In unit tooltips
* Optionally as a hyperlink in chat
* From a command line interface
* From a GUI interface

Notes can be set and managed:
* By right-clicking on a unit frame
* Right clicking a name in chat or in the friends list
* From a command line interface
* From a GUI interface
* LDB launcher to bring up the GUI interface
* Minimap button to bring up the GUI interface

Additional features:
* LibAlt integration. See below.

Command-line options:

/notes - Brings up the GUI
/searchnote <search term> - Brings up the GUI. Optional search term allows filtering the list of notes.
/setnote <name> <note> Sets a note for the character name specified.
/delnote <name> Deletes the note for the character name specified.
/getnote <name> Prints the note for the character name specified.
/editnote <name> Brings up a window to edit the note for the name specified or your target if no name if specified.

Character Notes can use LibAlts to get main-alt information. If no note is found for a character but one is found for the main of that character, it will display the note for the main.

Notes can be stored for characters not from your server but you'll need to use /editnote or the "Edit Note" menu item due to the spaces in the name (from the server name added at the end).

Note Links will add a hyperlink in chat next to any player name that you have set a note for. Clicking the "note" link will display the note in a tooltip.

I posted a new release with some changes that should fix that issue for you. Let me know if you have any issues.

Missing dependency?

It doesn't load for me either. Complains that libdbicon is missing, which seems to be an addon used for making minimap buttons. I guess it should be made a dependency, or maybe bundled in the addon somehow?

I may install that other addon tonight and try again.

Lua error message below:

That's interesting. Are any of the other commands working? Do you get any of the options when you right click on a unit frame? If you select another player and right click their unit frame, you should see an "Edit Note" option.

If you're using an LDB panel you can also bring up the window from there. If not, you can use the minimap button. It's off by default as I thought most would use LDB. If you hit Esc to get the Game menu up, select Interface, click the AddOns tab, find "CharacterNotes" in the list and there should be a checkbox for "Minimap Button".

Only other thing I can think of is that the add-on isn't loading for some reason. If you don't see any of the things I talk about above then it may be the issue.
