1.27 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Summerset.
  • Added support for jewelry crafting ingredients. Note: you will need to either create a new rule yourself, or reset AutoCategory to default settings to grab the new default rule.
    • To create your own rule, use
      Lua Code:
      1. filtertype("jewelrycrafting")
    • To reset to default settings: In the Auto Category add-on menu, use the Defaults button. Then use the /reloadui command. Important: this will remove any custom rules/settings you have defined.
  • New API function "IsMarkedIS()" - use to test whether an item is marked with Item Saver. Note that FCO ItemSaver users should continue to use "IsMarked()"

1.26 Changes:
  • New API function "islocked()" - use to test whether an item has been locked.

1.24 Changes:
  • Resolve circular dependency issue with DoItAll (requires matching update to DoItAll).


1.23 Changes:
  • Added Set Tracker support! Use "getsettrackerstate()" to retrieve the name of the Set Tracker category, if an item is tracked.
  • Added charlevel() and charcp() to pull current character level and CP. Can be used to compare item level to your character level with a custom rule. (Thanks to VulcanTourist)

1.22 Changes:
  • You can now define separate settings for your home storage chests (they will take their initial settings from your bank settings, but can be customized at will).

1.21 Changes:
  • Added support for home storage chests (big thanks to raj72616a). Currently, they will use the settings selected for your bank (no custom settings for home chests yet).
  • Bumped API version for Dragon Bones.
  • New maintainer (crafty35a).


1.19 Changes:
  • Fixed Localization.
  • New Feature: Collapsed/Expanded status can be saved now. You can turn it on in the general setting menu.

1.18 Changes:
  • Fixed Bug: IGV will show the last category correctly.
  • Fixed Bug: Items Count can be turned off permanently.
  • Fixed Bug: Quest Panel will not complain about lua error.

1.17 Changes:
  • Removed debug logs in destruct/improvement panel

1.16 Changes:
  • New Feature: Collapsible Category. You can now click the header to fold all items inside. Get an overall view of your inventory! Context Menu is available, you can collapse/expand all headers with one click.
  • New Feature: Hide-able Category. You can hide some categories to focus on the items you need to deal with. Also you can hide the items that are not matched in the 'Other' category. Can be set in bag setting menu.
  • New Feature: Items Count. You can get a total number about how many items inside the category. This can be turned off in the general setting menu.
  • Account Wide setting changed: You can switch account wide/character wide for each of your characters. (* Need to select again if you use character setting before, don't affect the bag settings)
  • Fixed bug: Removed duplicated rules in bag setting.
  • Fixed bug: German set names should be able to be matched now.
  • Changed api:keepresearch()
    After a lot of tests, the api is not working fine. So I decided to make the api work more simple: It will match all the items can be researched. If you want better result, please use it with other api together. This is a basic idea to filter the item that is not part of a set and can be researched:
    Lua Code:
    1. keepresearch() and not isset()
  • New api:isset() api:ismonsterset()

1.15 Changes:
  • New feature: Category header's height is customizable!

This is much more helpful than simply stating that it crashes and offering nothing else. Perhaps there is indeed something unique about ownership of the guild that is being accessed that causes trouble.

Small update: I removed all rules from my guild bank settings, and that way it does not crash (yet).

I still don't think you are understanding what I'm saying. The basic issue is that CP160 item should never be classified as low level, right? So what I'm saying is that you should just check at the beginning of your rule whether the item is 160, the rest of the code is irrelevant. Pseudo-code:

(itemcp != 160)
AND
(rest of your tests)

This will return false if the item is CP160, so it will never be marked as low level. Character CP is irrelevant in this case.
I understand your approach now. I'll change the rule to include that and take the if statement out of the function, and see if the result is the same over time. It will have to be changed if they ever increase the maximum gear CP level, but that would be true of my if statement, too... and you'd rather not have me be asking you to change that when that happens.

I'm not sure why you changed your original reply to this, but I can answer this one more directly. No, I don't have characters that can wear gear that has a CP value greater than 160, nor does that gear exist yet; you know this. The issue was and is that the charcp() function as I originally imagined it only returns the effective CP level of the character, a value that is worthless when trying to determine whether a gear item is above or below the "gear CP level" of a character. Here's a thought experiment:

I have three characters, one that is CP100 and another that is CP300. I have a piece of CP160 gear in the bank. You and I both can easily see that it will be "low level" to NEITHER of those characters. With my original Low Level rule,
type("armor", "weapon","jewelry") and (level() < charlevel() or (level == 50 and cp() < charcp())) and not keepresearch()
when each character visits the bank, how is that piece of gear categorized?

The answer is that it's categorized as Low Level for ONE of them, the CP300 character, which is clearly wrong. Why does that mis-categorization take place? It's because of this test:
cp() < charcp()
160 < 300

Do see the problem and why I had to add the extra if statement to the function? Any character whose CP level is greater than 160 must have its CP level as reported by the ESO API capped to a range of 0 to 160, else the above test returns an erroneous result.

Just add an explicit check for whether the item is 160 with the cp() function.
I think you've forgotten the reason why I asked for those functions and altered the rule in the first place: I want the Category to match gear that is a lower level than the current character. Testing against a CP value of 160 makes it no different than the original rule, which didn't need the extra function(s).

What I thought you were going to offer was an elegant means to eliminate if cp > 160 then cp = 160 end from the charcp() function itself? I'd rather not be maintaining my own private fork of AutoCategory just for one sentence of code. For my rule to work, either that must remain in the charcp() function or an efficient equivalent needs to be inserted into the matching rule. I don't know how to implement that.

I will try to look into this, but I am not the original author of Auto Category and may not be qualified to resolve this type of issue. Guild Banks work OK for me, but are definitely a little slower to open. If you're mainly having issues with Guild Banks, just remove all the rules from your Guild Bank settings. That will work around it for now.

Originally my altered Low Level category rule looked like this:
type("armor", "weapon","jewelry") and (level() < charlevel() or (level == 50 and cp() < charcp())) and not keepresearch()
However, while I was trying to figure out why it wasn't working as intended I simplified it to this, which apparently (with my modification to the function) produces the same result:
type("armor", "weapon","jewelry") and cp() < charcp() and not keepresearch()
I'm not sure why that works. My original rule might have been too pedantic because there are things I don't understand about LUA or the ESO API.

I've been willing to endure the "lag" you describe (which really isn't lag in the correct sense) because being able to categorize everything is crucial to me, but your complaint is not invalid. If one were to take AutoCategory and strip out all the custom programmability and leave just a one-size-fits-all cookie-cutter version, it might result in reduced computational burden that would please you. I wouldn't find any use for that one-size-fits-all version, though. The time it saves me in making sense of virtual containers full of hundreds of virtual items - once I've been able to customize it to my workflow and way of visualizing things - is well worth the extra seconds I wait for transactions to finish.

It doesn't really make sense to have a "CharCP" function that returns something besides the actual character CP. Why not build the logic into your custom filter rule?
I don't know how to do that, if it's possible and not overly cumbersome.

As long as what it does is documented in the wiki, I don't think the function name need be confusing. As I discovered, returning the actual or even effective character CP value has no use at all for any category matching, period, so why not massage what's returned to suit the purpose, as long as it's documented? Surely doing so in an LUA function directly is more efficient than in a parsed and exec'd string?

It doesn't occur for me, and I have many dozens of mods installed. I thought it was odd to declare such a showstopper issue without any further detail. I did, however, have the guild bank frame hang/freeze earlier today when I was experimenting with a category rule, and a bunch of LUA error detail was dumped into the chat frame rather than the usual notification. Is it possible to craft a category rule that when parsed and exec'd could crash the game? That would be quite the exploit.
