TinyPad  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.1.6
by: Gello [More]

TinyPad is a notepad addon.

How to Use

To summon: /tinypad or /pad or set a key binding.
To resize: drag the resize grip in the lower right corner of the window.

The mod should be self explanatory how to use. Mouseover buttons to see what they do.

Link Support

  • Links supported: Items, Spells, Tradeskills, Recipes, Quests, Achievements, and Battle Pets you own
  • To add links to pages: Bring up a TinyPad page and put the blinking cursor where you want to insert a link, then shift+click an item, spell, recipe, quest or achievement as you ordinarily would to chat. To link an entire tradeskill, click the chat bubble in the upper right of the tradeskill window, as you would for chat or macros.
  • To view links: Click them.
  • To send links: Shift+click to chat as you would normally.
  • Links can't be copy-pasted naturally and remain clickable. But the addon Linkerize will allow cut/pasting links with control codes.
  • Links may display only a handful of characters, but they have many hidden control characters. The EditBox is not intended to handle massive amounts of text, so keep that in mind if trying to cram the entire contents of AtlasLoot into one page.

Miscellaneous
  • Searches are case insensitive.
  • You can bind a key to search.
  • While locked, the window won't go away with ESC, but you can still toggle it with /pad or a key binding.
  • You can also run pages with /run TinyPad:Run(page)
  • You can add a page with TinyPad:Insert("text here adds a new page")
  • You can delete multiple pages with TinyPad.DeletePagesContaining("regex") NOTE: be careful with this one.
  • Clicking on an item link while a tradeskill window is open will jump to that item if your tradeskill can create it.

Sorry I missed this, Kaiden. I can look into it but my goal with this addon has been to have minimal feature creep. My preference would be to see if that addon could be revived.

Note on tonight's update (2.1.6):

There has been since the start of 7.3 patch an annoying bug with multiline editboxes that this addon depends: after so many lines of text, the cursor starts to "drift away" from the insertion point. A workaround for this while waiting for Blizzard to fix multiline editboxes is to change its scale to 1.0.

This TinyPad update adds a "Size" button in the options panel. Clicking this will change its scale to 1.0 (actually, it's removing its parent for now) which will likely make it larger on most modern computers. When Blizzard fixes multiline editboxes, the button will remain but will do a more tradition toggle between scales.

If the text is too big, remember you can cycle through fonts with the button beside it to get a smaller font so it looks normal again, only with larger buttons (which some have been asking for--so two birds with one stone!).

If there's any bugs or weirdness caused in the larger size, let me know. I chose to remove the parent instead of doing a 1/effectiveScale because it requires less things to track.

If TitanPanel has some way to make a plugin for a script, the command is:
Code:
/run TinyPad:Toggle()
I don't use TitanPanel so I don't know if that's possible.

Items, pets and mounts you don't own are already linkable.

For links sent from others you may need to cache them first: open the link someone sent (or that you pasted from wowhead etc) and then it should be shift+clickable into TinyPad. TinyPad caching everything that crosses chat would be horribly invasive imho.

That said, pets you don't own are not natively linkable. If you try shift+clicking a greyed-out pet from your own journal to a chat or TinyPad, it will do nothing. If an addon built a fake link ("\124cff888888\124Hbattlepet:94:1:3:100:1:1:BattlePet-0-000000000000\124h[Zergling]\124h\124r" for instance) you can click it on your client but it won't be linkable when sent to others.

The original code for TinyPad was written in 2005 and it remained relatively unchanged throughout the years. This update is a long-overdue rewrite using more modern methods.

That said, on the outside, very little will appear to have changed. The UI is (mostly) the same and there are no new substantial features, beyond more natural cursor/scroll behavior and the mentioned shift+enter on search bit.

For users of previous versions, none of your old pages/bookmarks will be lost. (I have 1876 pages as of this writing, so keeping every byte of that intact was an imperative.)

This addon is meant to be tiny and free of feature creep. But I'll certainly consider suggestions that are natural additions and not too specific to a purpose.

Thanks for using it!

Hi, ive just downloaded this nice little addon and it seems cool. i was wondering though if theres any possibility of incorporating features from Notes U Need? NuN is no longer supported and was regarded as the best notes addon for wow. some feature were a main window which listed the titles of your notes, and you could click to edit them. you could also share notes with other players with the same addon and insert information like player info, date & time etc.

Hadn't thought of it before, but that does make sense... because the links are actually quite alot longer than the pretty [linkname] that we see. Very handy addons this and linkerize are though

I can even click the supposed to be blank line after a link in my list, and it'll open the popup. (i put a line space between entries to keep things seperated and organized)

Pretty annoying that the popup comes up everytime i click something in my /pad list, and i just noticed it does the same thing even when nothing's been copy pasted (just saved the page by changing pages), and it resumes this slightly annoying behavior of making an entire entry a clickable link rather than plain text behaving as plain text.

Even with the above mentioned, it's still an awesome addon. between this and /dump __ / __ i dont have to alt tab to wordpad and calc anymore (although it could be nice to not have to type /dump everytime lol.. maybe someone somewhere can come up wtih a lightweight interface for a calc)
