MooTrack

Version: 1.10
by: Malsomnus [More]

This little add-on allows you to track any buffs or debuffs on yourself or anybody else. For each buff it can also display either the value or the number of stacks. For example, you might want to track the number of stacks of a boss debuff on the raid's tank, or you might want to track the value of Ignite on your target.

The add-on works with the same unit names you might know from macros, such as "player", "target" or "pet", as well as specific character names.

To track a new buff or debuff, just type "/track", write the spell's name, find an icon to display it with, and press the button to create a little movable spell icon. This spell will be specific to that character on that spec.

To temporarily show all your tracking icons (so you can move them) - even ones that you set to show only in combat, or while the aura exists - type "/track show".

You can lock all tracking icons, making them immovable and unclickable, by typing "/track lock". Naturally, this can be reversed by typing "/track unlock".

If you unfortunately used this add-on's previous buggy version and now have errors when you log in, or the add-on claims you're already tracking things which you aren't really, you can type "/track reset spec" to remove everything tracked for the current spec, or "/track reset all" for all specs on the current character. That should hopefully fix this problem.


Planned features:
* Allow to create tracking bars, instead of just icons.
* Devise a system that allows you to snap icons and bars next to each other conveniently (mostly because it sounds fun to code)

Have you seen my other add-ons yet?
SanityCheck - Of course you know how to play your class, but there is just so much to remember!
Flaskaholic - Flasks are expensive, stop wasting them!
Surprise - What does this add-on do? There is only one way to find out!
MagicMarker - One configurable tool for all your automatic marking needs!

Version 1.10
* More optimization.

Version 1.09
* This should not work with WoD.

Version 1.08
* Bugfix: tracking icons should no longer randomly disappear.
* Optimized stuff a bit.
* The text on icons is now 2 pixels higher, because it seemed sensible.

Version 1.07
* Added the option to lock all tracking icons.
* Added the option to display the remaining time in a tracking icon's text.

Version 1.06
* Added the option to show tracking icons only in combat or only while the aura exists.
* Added the "/track show" command to show icons even when they should be hidden.

Version 1.05
* Fixed some of my many bugs.

Version 1.04
* The icons should now be more responsive to dragging.

Version 1.03
* Fixed a bunch of bugs. I hope.
* Icons now snap to a 4x4 grid.

Version 1.02
* Fixed an annoying bug related to tracking the same aura on two different specs. However, now it probably won't let you track the same aura on two different targets...

Version 1.01
* Added the option to change set the size of each tracking icon (16-64 pixels).

Woops no
Still my bad for the amazingly clear interface
I'll see about improving that.

Well, there's at least one thing I can do about the target button, and that is adding a tooltip that clarifies it.

And I'm afraid I don't know what code you need for this !BeautyCase, so I'm not sure what to point you towards...

I see your point but i can't image anyone setting it up that way.
At least not me

Anyway, why not just explain it a bit more for new users of the addon.
Might be one or two sentences just to make clear how that works.

Or disable the text box. Make some checkboxes for player/target/focus. or a dropdown
menue for it.

EDIT

Other thing, i'm going to make the icon frames a bit nicer. The standard blizzard frames are
hard to bear, for me at least.
I'm going to use "!Beautycase" which provides some kind of api for that.
Maybe you could point me to a piece of code in your lua file to make that call for the frame.
I'm currently using rActionButtonStyler for my buttons and something similar for the buffs/debuffs in
case you wonder what i'm talking about. You can see it in the screenshot there.

I just confirmed the problem with the position on my warlock.
2 icons, after reloading they saved their y axis but the x axis is forgotten, they are both
stacked on each other in the center.

Well, I kinda agree about the Target button. The idea was that, for example, you're the main tank and you want to see the stacks of something or another on the off tank during a boss fight, so you watch that particular person by name. I admit that it's confusing, please feel free to suggest a fix

About the lock position thingy: I can't reproduce it myself, but I'll go over the code and see if I can see anything.
About the icons: I could look into it if you could remember specific details, but if it's a one time thing then I'm not overly worried.

I've just made a complete reset and created a new icon for flameshock.

After creating it, its locked and centered on the screen.
I unlocked it and dragged it down and left near my chat window.
I locked it again and reloaded the interface.
The icon saved its y-axis but it's centered again, x-axis was resetted.

I would like to mention 2 other issues i had:

. After using the addon for the first time, i had LUA errors regarding icons.
After fiddling around with the UI and the / command, the error is gone.
Unfortunately i can't reproduce it to post it here, sorry for that.

. the "Target" text box and the button "my target" are a bit misleading.
If you have a selected target, and you press the button, the text field is
filled with the name of that target, instead of just "target"
With that settings, the icon will not work at all, it just stays grey and sits there.
That was almost making me not using the addon because i thought it just wont work.

Please keep it simple.

I have an issue with it though...after reloading the icons don't stay where i put them.

I might manually do this in the LUA file.
That's a very strange issue... I've been using it quite a lot and can't say I've ever run into this problem except if the game happens to crash shortly after I add a new icon. Could you please provide more details?

Thank you for using it
I'm afraid it doesn't track cooldowns though, only buffs and debuffs.

To temporarily show all your tracking icons - even ones that you set to show only in combat, or while the aura exists - type "/track show". This allows you to move/ delete them.

Hi can you add like a test or config mode, maybe I am dumb but if i put it so that the thing will only show in combat or when around it's hard to configure as it just disapears.

Also how do you get rid of the ones youve created once they are "hidden"
