The Elder Bar


What is it?
This addon adds an information bar on the screen, chocked full of information gadgets that update in real-time. The gadgets can be placed on the bar in any order and there are lots of options to configure each one. Last, but not least, the bar can also indicate when in combat.

Features
  • The Elder Bar can be unlocked, dragged, and dropped wherever you'd like it. You can assign a hotkey to lock/unlock the bar.
  • Individual gadgets can be unlocked, dragged, and dropped in any order. You can assign a hotkey to lock/unlock the gadgets.
  • There is a separate mode for PvE and PvP -- the bar switches automatically. You can have different gadgets on the PvP bar than you do on the PvE bar.
  • Almost every gadget has options for coloration, warning thresholds, and different options for displaying the data just how you like it.
  • Research and fast travel timers can be automatically hidden when not in use.
  • Every gadget has a tooltip that can display additional information.
  • The Elder Bar can hide itself automatically when you choose. Choices include talking to NPCs, visiting the bank, crafting, and more.
  • The bar can be scaled from 50% to 150% of it's normal size.
  • An optional setting turns the bar red when you are in combat.
  • Track mount training times across multiple characters. You can choose whether to track a character or not. Automatically stops tracking characters with mounts at maximum.
  • Track gold across multiple characters. You can choose whether to track a character or not.
  • Icons come in three variations: classic white, black and white, and color.
  • There are five different pulse settings to draw your attention to gadgets, when a critical threshold has been met: fade in, fade out, fade in/out, slow blink, fast blink.

The problem appear at the crafting stations too. I have deactivated all my addons except the bar (because I don't know if one of them change this UI part) and the bar is still over the level on the top left of the screen.


For the soulgems, take you time

Hmm, interesting. So far, all my addons are over the bar as well. But this doesn't mean there's not something I can do to fix it! I'll install Advanced UI and see if I can either lift the minimap layer up over the bar or lower the bar under it.

As far as soul gems go, there seems to be a couple of ways of counting them up. One is using the built in GetSoulGemInfo() function that will count all filled and empty soul gems. Only problem is it completely ignores soul gems that you may have purchased, or been given, from the Crown Store. The other requires knowing bag numbers and slot numbers. I think the second way is the way to go, as I can then use IsItemFromCrownStore. While I can grab the bag number/slot number by adding an event handler that would watch for changes to inventory, I'm not sure how I would count things up when the addon first starts. I refuse to implement it only part way, so I'm still investigating it.

I hope it can help you

Howdy,

Yes, I've been planning on adding the ability to turn individual currencies on and off ever since I released the initial version. I personally don't care about most of the currencies myself. I'll see what I can do for the next release.

I'll have to research how to count soul gems. They don't actually appear as a currency, so I might have to scan the character's bag/bank to count up what's available. I'll see what I can do there as well.

If you can't do the last thing, not a big deal, I'll be happy if I can just see the gold and soulgems
Can you give me the name of the minimap addon that you are using so I can test with it installed? It may be that I simply have the bar too high in the layers. If you'd mind sending me a screenshot, that might be helpful as well.

Thank you for giving it a try! The more feedback I get like this, the better things will get.

Can you capitalize and use proper English grammar, please? That is why I don't use info panel. Thank you.

Actually, I was trying to write something new since Wykkyds Toolbar didn't seem to be maintained any longer. There's multiple info bars available, such as Wykkyds Toolbar and Super Useful Gadget Bar. Neither of which are kept up to date.

As far as the current version goes, the biggest difference between The Elder Bar and Info Panel is that The Elder Bar doesn't require the ping / FPS window to function, so you leave those off if you wish.

For the future, I see The Elder Bar allowing you to rearrange the items as you fit, adding many options for formatting the different pieces of information, maybe allow both a top and bottom bar, perhaps allow a larger bar that can have multiple rows.

As to why I didn't enhance an existing addon, it's simple: I don't understand addons well enough to do so. Writing this addon was more or less my first attempt at getting my feet wet.

But in the end, it's really your preference. If you like The Elder Bar over Info Panel, then by all means use it. If you don't, then no harm done.

How does this compare to Info Panel, by Hoft? May I ask why you added a new addon instead of using / enhancing the existing one?

I'm trying to understand if I should consider switching over to yours, so the differences are the key to that, y'know?
