Price Tracker (revised by) Draconeran
Version: 2.4.1
by: draconeran [More]
This addon functions the same way the original Price Tracker functions.

I updated the lib files to LibAddonMenu-2.0r16 to remove a lua error.

I moved the Price Scan button below the Start Search button so it did not interfere with Awesome Guild Store's buttons.

Commands found!
I found the addon command with the lua file. I thought I had seen them before. Please help me test the functionality on these command to make the addon better in the future. I would really like to see in the /pt clean functions as intended. You will have to check your saved variables file to watch how much the size changes using these commands.

/pt help - Show this help
/pt clear - Clear stored price values
/pt clean - Remove stale items (listed as "experimental" in the lua coding)*
/ptsetup - Open the addon setup menu

Price Tracker
Version: 2.4
by: Barvazon

General Info

Price Tracker is a simple addon that scans all your guild banks and tracks items and their prices. It then calculates and shows a suggested price in the item tooltip, as well as the minimum and maximum prices and the number of times the item was seen in the stores.

The suggested price can be calculated in several ways (which can be selected in the settings menu):•Weighted average: The average price of all items, with stack sizes taken into account. For example, a stack of 10 items will be counted 10 times when calculating the average price.
•Median price: The price value for which half of the items cost more and half cost less.
•Most popular price: The most common price value.[/color]

How to Use

Initially, all the guild stores have to be inspected in order for the addon to work properly. Simply go to a banker, open the Guild Store menu and click on the 'Scan Prices' button on the left-hand side. This will take a while, depending on how many guild stores are available, and how many items are listed in each guild store. During the scanning process, the 'Scan Prices' button will be disabled. It will be reenabled once all the guild stores have been scanned.

After that, simply select an item in your bag, and if the item is listed in a guild store, it will show the suggested price.

Updating Prices

Occasionally, click on the 'Scan Prices' button again to update the price list with newly listed items.

Database Update

Notice that starting v1.7 changes the way items are indexed and retrieved. From now on, instead of using the item name, Price Tracker uses the item ID, which is a lot more accurate. It also accounts for the item's level when comparing prices. For example, Leather Boots of Stamina can come in level 15, 35 or 50. When comparing prices, only items that match the level of the selected Leather Boots of Stamina will be taken into account.

Having said that, I am aware that, for some reason, certain items come in more than one level, where that does not seem to make any sense. Recipes, ingredients, and certain items will report to have different levels, even though no discernible difference can be found. I do not know why that is the case. Only ZO can answer that question.

Lastly, as a result of this change, all saved items will be dropped, and a new database will be created. Please do not forget to click on the 'Scan Items' button to rescan the stores.

Its because of folder name, if you rename folder from "Price Tracker custom fix" to "PriceTracker", it will work. See my comment below.
By the way if you are interested, I have modified version of PriceTracker in my Dropbox folder. What is changed is in changelog in the archive.

Folder name

Can you please change folder name in uploaded archive to "PriceTracker"? I have installed this addon using Minion and it doesn't work that way because of folder name.

Ghost error encountered

I found an error when I disable one of my addons. I lose price trackers setup menu and get stuck in a loop trying to use the /ptsetup command. I will try to find the cause of this error. Lots of addons use libaddonmenu as their core library files. The UI attempts to load the most recent version of these lib files. I will be looking at this closely.

I have not had any correspondence returned from Barvazon. I read thru all document that were sent with the original and found the license allow free use and modification by others.

I am just starting to get it to write lua codes and will be looking to add that feature if I can. The other feature I want to figure out first is a way to either save the data somewhere else or allow users to clear their saved variable file to prevent the memory error I encountered.

I am grateful for all the support I have received. I may be awhile getting the next version out due to RL events. I am not forgetting this project. I like the features of this addon too much. We as a community need to find those addons that have been abandoned with open licenses and "take them under our wing".

Sorry about the bad upload

I just checked the files I uploaded. I accidentally grab the test files that didn't have the newest lib added this has been fix.

I have not had any issue with the button since I moved it by editing the XML file.

The correct files should be uploaded very soon.

Some errors may be cause by an old saved variables file. I have not started to build any coding to let price tracker purge this data, but it is on my to do list.

Just FYI - addon description says that this archive contains LibAddonMenu-2.0 r16, but inside of the archive is old r8 which does not work with Update 5. Also LibStub is r1 instead of the latest r2.
i run it right now, without any addons ON. and dont get any errors, btw
I have tried to download it twice and there is still LAM2 r8. So if you really do not have any other addon enabled, you must get an UI error (at least when you try to open settings menu).
