Detached MiniMap Buttons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.9.47
by: borohir [More]

This mod attempts to 'detach' all your minimap buttons, allowing you to place them anywhere on your screen. Positions are saved per server/character and restored next login.

This is the first version of this mod, I am sure not all kinks are worked out. I have tested it only with the mods I have, so please let me know which mods create buttons that I cannot detach so I can load them and see what-is-what.

Not all minimap buttons are detected at start up (such as FuBar plugin mods, which has its own moving anyway). A slash command is provided so you can rescan for buttons: /dmbs. This will also reposition any buttons it failed to find at startup.

Special thanks to AnduinLothar without whose code and ideas in Mobile Minimap Buttons I would not have thought of this.

Very special thank to acruz2772 on wowinterface for guiding me to changes for TBC! His excellent explanation made things much easier!

Slash Commands:
/dmbs : look for new buttons.
/dmbs nodock : buttons will NOT try to dock to Minimap when close to it.
/dmbs dock : buttons will try to dock to Minimap when close to it. This is default.
/dmbs reset : reset all buttons back to initial positions.
/dmbs config: bring up UI
CHANGES:


0.9.35:Removed the hooking stuff for SMM and lockdown as it is no longer needed! Big thank you to Arjuna of SMM!
Changed variable isMoving to isDragging, this will fix compatability with mods which also use this.isMoving (like ImprovedErrorFrame).
Changed event back to PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD since VARAIBLES_LOADED didn't help.
Changed TOC to 20003 (no 20004 or 20005?).
0.9.36:Added LFGX support.
Fixed (?) ICU button.
Added UI configuration: /dmbs config. This is a first attempt, if all goes well, I will clean it up and release this as version 1.0.0. Here is what the config does:
The first TAB are global options:
Use Grid X and Y turn on/off positioning buttons by grid coordinates. The sliders specify how big the grid is. Grid anchors
are always TOP and LEFT of the button. X,Y grid scale can be set independent of each other. Grid changes take place without a
restart.
Force Scale to 1.0 forces all buttons to a scale of 1.0 at start up. Good for strange scaled buttons. This only affects buttons at start up.
Lock All Buttons prevents DMBS from dragging buttons. This does not mean other addons cannot move the buttons.
The second TAB contains controls PER BUTTON:
On the left is a list of all the buttons DMBS knows about. Not in the list, then I do nothing to it.
Along the right/bottom are some sliders for moving buttons.
Scale allows you to change the size of a button from 30% to 200%. NOTE THIS DOES NOT WORK FOR ALL BUTTONS, so try it and see.
Force Hidden forces a button to be invisible. Unchecking will attempt to show the button, but the button is not forced to be
visible. NOTE: OTHER ADDONS MAY HIDE/SHOW A BUTTON. I MAKE NO EFFORT TO PREVENT THAT.
Lock Button stops DMBS from dragging a button. This does not mean other addons cannot move the buttons.
At the bottom are some buttons to reset position/center a button in case it gets lost.
0.9.37:Updated TOC for 2.1.
Added support for PoliteWhisper.
0.9.38:Added CraftBot support.
Added XCalc support.
Fixed up the /dmbs help text.
Removed some debug stuff.
Attempted fix for scaling error.
0.9.39:Updated TOC.
Fix for Tracking Frame on PTR.
Added some (maybe all) of the buttons produced by ShardAce.
0.9.40:Added profile copying. Use /dmbs config and select a profile, the use the copt button.
Possible fix for Gatherer notes not appearing. Switched event to VARIABLES_LOADED and then delay by 20 seconds before going after buttons.
Added AtlasLootEnhanced.
Added ClearFont2.
Added PhanxChat.
Added Sunn Viewport.
Fix for ShardAce right click on the count button.
0.9.41:Update 2.3 TOC.
Added command: '/dmbs copy [realm]/char' to copy profiles. If realm is NOT given, then current realm is assumed. Realm/Char names are CASE SENSITIVE.
0.9.42:Try to fix up initialization and button placements. Maybe screwed up when Blizz fixed UIEffectiveScale.
Possible fix for ShardAce Healthstone button.
0.9.43:Fix for Alarm Clock Wrangler.
Update TOC.
Fix for NX button.
Fix for scale being nil when clicking a button in UI.
Check GetLeft(),GetTop sometimes not returning anything?
Added Reinhearthe to TOC. Thanks for the updates!!

0.9.44:Fix for WoTLK tracking button.
0.9.45:Greatly reduce CPU usage (finally!)
0.9.46:Attempt to stop taint issues, check InCombat in Update.
Changed the way included and excluded frames are listed and added many more to skip over.
Fix for Chinchilla mouse scroll.
Add libDBIcon to lookups.
Fixes for tracking icon being wierd.
0.9.47:Fixed scroll bar in config.
Added bejeweled. Use RIGHT mouse to move that one, like tooltip says.

Re: tracking button

Hey, love this mod, been using it for a long time, just wanted to ask a few questions.

First, this has to have been mentioned before, but the X-Perl minimap button will not adhere to the grid for some reason. Not really a big deal, but I really like my UI to be neat and orderly, and if I have to rearrange things it's a minor inconvenience, so I thought I'd mention it/ask about it.

Secondly, I dont know if this is DMBS or something else, but again, not a big deal in any way, just curious, but when I alt-z to clear the UI from the screen when I go back the Macaroon minimap button is oh I'd say 100-150 pixels directly up from where it was and has to be dragged back. Additionally the tracking button shows up afterwards, but not the icon, just the border of it. (I use Elkbuffbars, so the tracking is in there, and there should be no tracking icon). I have moved the frame behind my titan bar so I don't notice it but I was just curious/wanting to mention it.

Great addon, it's a must have!

tracking button

The tracking button seems to bug a bit, with your addon.
It separates the displayed picture with the Button and displaces them.
I have no idea how to fix it so.

Hi - have been using this addon for a long time now - is great. Thanks.

Have just noticed that my Minimap tracking button keeps disappearing every time I load up WoW. I manually go into the the config, select it, hide it and unhide it.

Anything I can do to avoid this.

Not a major prob - but a pain

Also, the button wont scale for me - if I enlarge or reduce it, the physical outline stays the same size although it does look like the clicking area is scaling

Cheers

Bones

Hey, I just noticed your addon description mentions that you include code to support PhanxChat's minimap button, and wanted to let you know that my addon doesn't have a minimap button anymore (and hasn't for quite a while now) and will never have one again.

Re: Focus

Syxx: I have no trouble with DAG...i use it also, I forget if it moves on its own but I will look.
Check line 1085 in DetachedMiniButtons.lua, that is the startup delay (the 20 for 20 seconds.)
Gard: Look here:

Note the second post, where this bug is confirmed. Not much I think I can do.

Focus

When I use /focus or the in game focus I receive an error and unable to set a focus. This was posted on Curse, but seemed to be over looked. I have done a fresh install of all my addons so I have the latest version.

Code:
Date: 2008-11-20 06:35:07
ID: 51
Error occured in: AddOn: DetachedMiniButtons
Count: 1
Message: Error: AddOn DetachedMiniButtons attempted to call a forbidden function (FocusUnit()) from a tainted execution path.
Debug:
   [C]: FocusUnit()
   ..\FrameXML\UnitPopup.lua:1181:
      ..\FrameXML\UnitPopup.lua:996
   [C]: func()
   ..\FrameXML\UIDropDownMenu.lua:568: UIDropDownMenuButton_OnClick()
   [string "*:OnClick"]:1:
      [string "*:OnClick"]:1
I have removed the long list of my addons, but that is the error I am getting. Any suggestions?

Is Dag not staying put an issue with Dag or DMBS?
It's driving me nuts. I will NOT stay where I put it.

Also, for some reason DMBS is picking up Chinchilla coords and location minimap frames. DMBS has a huge delay in placing the minimap buttons where you want them when you login ir /reloadui, normally it doesn't bother me but I switched to Chincilla and my coords is now off in obvlivion until DMBS decides to put the button where I had them (With the exception of DAG). Can I change the delay?

Thank you!

I had to remove dagassist to use this one (which is more what I want for a button addon).

But I gotta QQ lol...I had to download forte_warlock (whatever he named it to now)...and It's just too much for me, I liked dag assist because it was neat, put away, and only did what I wanted it to do.

So please, I'm begging you, as you have the greatest minimap button solution...can you try to find a way to get dagassist to work with this? or vice versa? Even if you have to plead with dagos and work together? lol Seriously I want 2 of my fav addons walking hand and hand v.v

Yes, i'm a lock, so a lil more qq
