KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 228
by: Kesava [More]
Prettier, pixel-perfect nameplates with auras. Configurable through interface options (open with /knp or /kuinameplates).

Class colours on hostile players can be enabled in the default interface options, under "Names" - check "Class Colors in Nameplates" at the bottom right.

If you're having issues with nameplates being in incorrect locations or being unclickable, first try unchecking the "Fix aliasing" option in configuration.

More up to date versions can often be found on Curse. Please try using that version before reporting a bug.

Current features:
  • All of the default nameplate features
  • Pixel perfect!
  • Auras!
  • Combo points
  • Tank mode - recolour health bars when you have threat (enable by checking "Enable tank mode" in options)
  • Customisable display of health for friendly or enemy units
  • Pretty fading in/out of frames (disable by unchecking "Smoothly fade" in options)
  • Automatic toggling of nameplates when you enter or exit combat (enable by checking "Auto toggle in combat" in options)
  • Cast & incoming healing warnings, useful for PVP (disabled by default, check "Show cast warnings" in options)
  • Configuration profiles
Health display patterns:
The text to display for health on different frames is determined by two simple patterns: one for friendly frames and one for neutral and hostile frames. These patterns can be changed in the options dialog (/knp). They must make use of specific conditions and results, in the following format:
condition1:result1;condition2:result2;condition3:result3;
There must be at least one condition (and one result). Any other conditions are optional.

Possible conditions are:
"=" When the unit is at maximum health...
"<" When the unit's health is less than maximum...
"=<" When the unit's health is either less than maximum or at maximum...
Possible results are:
"m" ... Display their maximum health (i.e. 123.4k).
"d" ... Display their health deficit (i.e. -46.5k).
"p" ... Display their health percentage.
"c" ... Display their current health (i.e. 76.9k).
"b" ... Display nothing.
The patterns used by default are:
Friendly units: =:m;<:d;
Which means:
When the unit is at maximum health:Display their maximum health;
When they're below maximum health:Display their health deficit;
Hostile units: <:p;
Which means:
When the unit is below maximum health:Display their health percentage;
Planned features:
  • Frame blacklisting
  • Stuff I can't remember
228
* make auras significantly more reliable
* change tankmode uiname to "Threat", in anticipation of additions to its config page

* add options to change reaction colors
* split "don't fade units at low health" into two seperate options for hostile units and friendly units
* fix "fade all" doesn't work consistently when faded alpha is set to 0%
* fix castbar sometimes fading out on newly shown frames where it was inappropriate
* fix logic error in kui frame fading code which may have caused some problems with repeated frame fading
* add upper limit to name width (using default layout) to prevent ridiculous overflows
* remove kui_nameplates_absorbs because that was nowhere near ready and shouldn't have been pushed anyway, whoops
* bump kui minior

* fix lua error when cast time display is enabled but name is disabled
* reduce name text jiterry-ness using centred layout
* add option to only use frame glow as threat glow (hide it when there's no threat)
* add option to show auras on trivial units

* reposition castwarnings to fit with new layout
* add option to use left-aligned layout, similar to the pre-223 layout (in /knp > general)

* add spark to castbars.
* make castbars fade out rather than instantly disappearing.
* cast time display is now disabled by default.
* change layout of healthbar text; names are no longer truncated.
* change layout of castbar text; spell name is no longer truncated.
* change default font to Expressway Rg Bold. Works better at smaller sizes in WoW.
* change level text for bosses to "Boss".
* remove option to colour unit names. This can be achieved with a small custom.lua modification.
* remove maximum cast time from castbar text (only current time is shown now)
* remove Accidental Presidency from Kui_Media.

Edit Kui_Nameplates/lib/kui/main.lua, line ~23 should be:
Code:
bar = media .. 't\\bar',
Change "bar" at the end to the name of the texture file you added to the Kui_Media\t folder, minus the .tga file extension. That should change everything. At the moment you'll have to edit that every time there's an update. At some point though, I think I'll move textures over to libSharedMedia to make it easier to configure.

Edit: in fact, I've just pushed the update to fix this (133), so there's no need to do anything below.

That should be fixed in the next version, however it should, maybe work properly if you do this:
Code:
/run KuiNameplatesDB=nil;ReloadUI()
That'll reset your configuration, but I'll need to do that anyway. Also I guess since it's not saving settings anyway it doesn't really matter too much.

Well, there's custom-rename-me.lua in the Kui_Nameplates folder now. If you rename that to custom.lua you can put whatever code you want in the hook-functions to modify the layout at specific points, rather than changing things in layout.lua.

So, to demonstrate, if you wanted nameplates to have a.. pure.. black background.. You'd do this. Find this line in custom-rename-me.lua:
Code:
local function PostCreate(frame)
And put this code after it:
Code:
	frame.parent:SetBackdrop({ bgFile = 'Interface\\AddOns\\Kui_Media\\t\\solid' })
	frame.parent:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0)
Then rename custom-rename-me.lua to custom.lua, completely restart wow (if you had it open) so it detects the new file, and then nameplates should be really ugly, and they'll still be really ugly even after you update the addon. Unless I rename a variable, or change the way custom code is hooked. You'll never need to absolutely recode everything like you did before though.

If you have trouble getting something to work with this, PM me. It doesn't support absolutely everything, but it's enough for me to get castbars, cast warnings, etc. working, so it should be enough for you to make basic layout changes.

didnt work well, when you saw a minion the design from my custom.lua will overwrite the style from the minion plate :/

http://www.wowhead.com/npc=56401 in the greenstone cave in jadeforest i test this everytime.

this is my code so far:

Code:
local function PostCreate(frame)
	frame.health:SetSize(frame.health:GetWidth(), 7)
	frame.bg.fill:SetSize(169, 30)
	frame.bg:SetTexture(nil)
	frame.level:SetFont("Fonts\\ARIALN.ttf", 13, nil)
	frame.level:SetPoint('BOTTOMLEFT', frame.health, 'TOPLEFT', 4, 4)
	frame.name:SetFont("Fonts\\ARIALN.ttf", 13, nil)
	frame.name:SetPoint('LEFT', frame.level, 'RIGHT', 2, 0)
	frame.boss:SetTexture('Interface\\TargetingFrame\\UI-TargetingFrame-Skull')
	frame.boss:SetSize(10, 10)
end

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Show --
local function PostShow(frame)
	if frame.boss:IsVisible() then
		frame.level:SetText('    ')
	end
end
how can i change the style from the minions?

Yeah. Certain things you modify need to be put in PostShow because they're changed in layout.lua when a trivial nameplate is shown. So, name text, level text, things like that. Things that you make can usually be put in PostCreate, as they won't be modified anywhere in layout.lua.

This should work, but I haven't tested it. Just as an example for what needs to be moved into PostShow.
Code:
local function PostCreate(frame)
	frame.bg.fill:SetSize(169, 30)
	frame.bg:SetTexture(nil)
	frame.boss:SetTexture('Interface\\TargetingFrame\\UI-TargetingFrame-Skull')
	frame.boss:SetSize(10, 10)
end

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Show --
local function PostShow(frame)
	if frame.boss:IsVisible() then
		frame.level:SetText('    ')
	end

	frame.health:SetSize(frame.health:GetWidth(), 7)
	frame.level:SetFont("Fonts\\ARIALN.ttf", 13, nil)
	frame.level:SetPoint('BOTTOMLEFT', frame.health, 'TOPLEFT', 4, 4)
	frame.name:SetFont("Fonts\\ARIALN.ttf", 13, nil)
	frame.name:SetPoint('LEFT', frame.level, 'RIGHT', 2, 0)
end

To change things in trivial nameplates you need to put whatever code you want in PostShow, and surround it with this:

Code:
if frame.trivial then
    [your code here]
end
frame.trivial is always false in PostCreate, so everything needs to be in PostShow, Hide or Target. So for example if you want to show levels on trivial nameplates you could do this:

Code:
if frame.trivial then
    frame.level:Show()
    [then you should also set the point of .level so it looks better or whatever else you like]
end

That's a feature in the default UI since 5.1. More on it from an older comment here.

The other way I could "fix" it would be very clunky and I don't have any plans to. I kind of expect Blizzard to at least implement a hidden CVar to disable them at some point (like they do for threat-enlargement), so I feel it'd be wasted development time.

i think you dont have to build the platebuffs, because it work very good with the platebuffs addon.... so why to build the wheel new? ^^ (hope it was the right translation *g*)

so if there is space for better minimalistic code, you have to improve your addon with that, but make it more bigger is the wrong way i think
