Yeah, that's what I meant. Only in a different order, 4/117 2/118 (current value/remaining value).
Iíll provide options to display it different ways.

In this case, it will be possible to abandon a couple of other extra mods, and keep only this one.
Hi,

I can certainly look into it. Are you looking for something that gives you a count? For example:
  • Artwork 3
  • Children's Toys 0
  • Cosmetics 1

Laundry, I would guess, would be similar, but list crafting ingredients, lockpicks, and whatnot instead.

Which addons are you using now that provide that kind of functionality? Might be easier if I took a look at them.
FWIW, I'd kind of like "number of stolen treasures", "number of stolen items - treasures", and also "number of fence / launder transactions remaining today", if it isn't too much trouble?
Oh, I see. Sure Iíll see what I can do after I release the next version.

UPCOMING RELEASE

Hi everyone,

I've finalized the changes that will be in the next release of The Elder Bar. I'll be testing these out for the next week. Once everything seems in order, I'll release the next version.

Here's a sneak peek or what's coming. Enjoy!

New Gadgets
  • FPS
  • Weapon Charge

New Settings
  • Players can now choose to bump up the action bar and magicka, health, and stamina indicators when the bar is positioned at the bottom of the screen.
  • Combat indicator now has its own opacity setting.
  • Players can now choose how to display their level when below the maximum level of 50.
  • Players can now choose how to display their level when at the maximum level of 50.
  • Players can now choose how to display FPS.
  • Players can now choose how to display weapon charges remaining.
  • Players can now choose how to display bag space.
  • Players can now choose how to display bank space.
  • Added a new display setting to Sky Shards: "collected/total needed (unspent skill points)"

Changes
  • Reduced the number of API calls being made, which could lower latency and increase FPS on some systems.
  • Changed how the bar is centered when centered to reduce jitter.
  • Currency tooltips will also now include an icon of each currency to help identify it.
  • Equipped items are now run through a routine that will attempt to correct improper capitalization and trailing control characters when viewing durability and weapon charge tooltips.
Fixes
  • The combat indicator will appear at the same location as the bar, instead of always at the top of the screen.

- Repair Kits - following the soul gems approach of this addon, differentiating the types.
- Weapon Charge - could be implemented within the Durability gadget; although it would be nice to have it displayed on the bar itself to see the percentage.
- Tamriel Clock (showing Tamriel time) - implemented within the existing Clock gadget with the option to toggle on/off each, both or none clocks within the addons settings.
- Memory Used by Addons - it would be a "nice to have" sort of thing; perhaps implement FPS, Latency, and Addons Memory Usage in a single gadget, with the option to toggle on/off each one individually in the addon settings.


Thank you for the awesome addon! It's now one of my "must have" addons!
Keep up the excellent work!
Thanks for all the great ideas! I especially like the idea of a Thief gadget. And thanks for using the addon -- I'm glad you like it!

Plans? Yes. It really depends on whether or not the event fires properly.

Code:
EVENT_MANAGER:RegisterForEvent("MyMod", EVENT_RETICLE_HIDDEN_UPDATE, OnReticleHidden)
I ended up working from home today, so that means the I get more work done on The Elder Bar. The event above works great -- almost too great. It definitely hides and shows the bar whenever the targeting cursor disappears from the screen.

However, sometimes it's useful to have the bar up. Automatically hiding the bar makes the tooltips useless, as the bar hides as soon as you show the mouse pointer. Also, it'd be nice to be able to see the changes you are making in settings with the bar visible. I was thinking that there was an event whenever LibAddonMenu2 showed the settings for the addon, but apparently I was mistaken.

I guess the only caveat I could make easily is add a setting to always show the bar, like it does now. I'd rather it hide the bar when performing transactions, crafting, banking, and maybe showing the world map. I have feeling there's a lot of heartache in store as I'm sure I'll miss some.

Other than this, I have added display settings for every gadgets that warrants a setting, so there's that. I also added an FPS gadget, reduced the number of API calls, and changed the way things are centered so there's not so much jitter. Going to have to test these changes for a bit before release.
