InfoStrip
Version: 1.12
by: Tarumi [More]
InfoStrip is a liteweight data broker like addon. I didn't want the bulkiness of some of the other data brokers so I built my own. The entire addon runs around 30kb total during playtime.

All features are listed below (from left to right on the bar):

-Change/show what you are currently tracking. Useful for those who want a minimalistic UI since you can now hide your Minimap button but always know what your tracking.
-Badges: Onhover will show you the badge name and total for all badge names specified in the lua file (line 11). If you want to add/delete them just modify that line in InfoStrip.lua. If you need help just ask by pm'ing me or commenting.
-Friends/Guildies: Shows the number of friends and guild members online. On hover displays information about members. Clicking the button text will bring up the appropriate display.
-Location: Shows zone/sub-zone if not in an instances. If in an instance/raid, will display the name of the instance, the difficulty level, and the party size.
-Durability: The percentage your gear is currently at.
-XP: Displays only for those below level 80 and show the current percentage you are into the current level. On hover displays more information about your experience.
-Wintergrasp Timer: Will display only for those above level 70 and shows the controlling side (Horde or Alliance) along with the time left until battle. Currently only shows if there is less than 15min until WinterGrasp.
-Latency/FPS: Simple memory display. On hover displays all your addons along with the memory used for each.
-New Mail: Displays if there is mail, otherwise displays "No Mail". On hover displays the first three senders.
-Coordinates of your current position
-The current server time

The two slash commands are just to show/hide the frame itself:
/InfoStrip show
/InfoStrip hide

To change the opacity of the background go to line 37 in InfoStrip.lua
Code:
local t = f:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK")
t:SetTexture(0, 0, 0, .5)
And change the .5 to be a number between 0 and 1 with 0 being completely see through.

To change the badges watched find line 11 in InfoStrip.lua
Code:
local trackBadges = Set{"Emblem of Frost", "Stone Keeper's Shard", "Emblem of Heroism", "Emblem of Triumph", "Honor Points", "Dalaran Cooking Award"} --Badge names to track
And add/remove names of badges you want to track. It MUST be the full name of the badge, no short names.

To change the font and/or fontsize go to line 12 in InfoStrip.lua
Code:
fontheight = 11									-- Fontsize
font = "Interface\\AddOns\\InfoStrip\\font.ttf"	-- Font
Where fontheight is the size and font is the string path to the font you want to use. Remember that a slash "\" must be represented as a double slash to work "\\".

Since this is my first addon there is no configuration screen but let me know if you have any suggestions or want to change something. I can help you out. And if you have any questions, comments, or find any problems please let me know either in a private message or in the comments section.

Thanks!
8/13/10: version 1.12

You might want to make it clearer in the description that this is not a DataBroker display and does not support DataBroker plugins.

Right now it's a bit more combuersome to disable parts. If you PM me I'd be glad to work with you to figure it out though

A future rewrite will have it so it's very easy to disable/enable them...but I have to figure out a good way to do that beforehand.

Truly superb addon my friend. Extremely lightweight and your coding is nice and clean. Couple of things though.
1. Guildies button isn't working for me. Shows how many online but no tooltip and doesn't pull up the window when i click on it.

2. I changed the font size and font itself. Now everything is kinda overlapping. I'm still kinda new to coding so dont quite understand the way you have everything spaced out. If theres a way for me to add more space inbetween modules that would be great.

I believe those are my only two problems atm. Again great addon.

Edit: Guild button working again...not quite sure what happened. Increased the width of the modules to give better spacing in between and now its working.

Now I have a major issue. Its causing some serious conflicts with my map addon Mapster. I can't zoom into a zone or go to a different continent on the map. Just shows the full continent that I'm on. Kinda wierd.

I'll keep playing around with it.

Ok fixed the Map problem. Had to remove the Alliance/Horde controlling part of the code.

Hasn't been showing the Wintergrasp timer at all since i started using but not that big of a deal.

Also hope you don't mind. I'm trying to help you with a re-write with the added feature of turning modules on/off. Sry I'm REALLY bored atm. lol

Sry for being such a pain in the arse!

Edit: Alright I know I'm a pain. Pretty much gave up on trying to re-code the addon cause well I'm still new to coding and made a complete mess of things.

The idea was a simple config at the top of the file:
Code:
showTracking = true/false
showGuildies = true/false
showFriends = true/false
allowing ppl to type in either true or false for whichever they want to show or not to show

Just an idea...I'll leave you alone now lol.

Nice addon. But....

First off, LOVE the addon, it is super lightweight, and looks great.

I am however having an issue with the tooltips. When I mouse over the XP, it shows the tooltip border really small, and the info itself is all over the screen. I would attempt to fix it, but I am coding stupid. Please check it out. Thanks :P

Have you updated to the recent version? I put a fix out that should take care of the problem. Let me know if it doesn't!

I was pretty sure that I was running the most recent release but I deleted the folder and downloaded it again yesterday just to be sure. The map issue is still there just now instead of not being able to zoom into a zone or another continent I can't zoom out of the zone that I'm in.
