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.
  • 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.
  • And many, many more customization options!

Awsome! Thank you! Trying not to be a bother but is it possible to have the weapon track poison applied? It seems to track the enchantment even when I have a poison slotted. Thanks again for a great addon!
No worries, I'll take a look at that too. When you have poison applied, it technically should show the number of poison left instead of the charge, but not sure how to display it in a way that makes sense and doesn't require a bunch of configuration. I'll figure something out.

I've started looking at adding some buff timers for food, drink, and XP. Just in the beginning stages, but it's looking promising.

Issue: If I scale the bar to a different value than 100%, it becomes a bit blurry and hard to read, even if I set it at 90%.
As far as I can tell, this doesn't happen with other addons I have, which use a scaling based on the icon/text size.

Thanks!

Could you maybe add a popup tooltip on the mount timer gadget which will show the time left until next mount training can be done of my other characters?

Technical info
You are able to use the OnMouseEnter and OnMouseLeave events to register a callback function and then use the ZOs functions to show/hide a text tooltip:


Lua Code:
  1. myGadgetControl:SetHandler("OnMouseEnter", function(control)
  2.   ZO_Tooltips_ShowTextTooltip(control, LEFT, "My tooltip text\nThis started a new line for a new character")
  3. end)
  4.  
  5. myGadgetControl:SetHandler("OnMouseLeave", function()
  6.    ZO_Tooltips_HideTextTooltip()
  7. end)

If you are using XML you can also use the lua coe to update the tooltip as a property/attribute of the control, like "myMountTimerGadgetIcon.tooltipText = "Char1: 2:25h\nChar4: 1:15".
And then use the XML mouse event handlers to show self.tooltipText
Hi Baertram,

Thanks for the info, but apart from me creating my own control so I have more flexibility in the tooltip's display, isn't that pretty much what I've done?

Lua Code:
  1. <OnMouseEnter>
  2.    TEB.ShowToolTipM(self)
  3. </OnMouseEnter>
  4. <OnMouseExit>
  5.    TEB.HideTooltip(self)
  6. </OnMouseExit>
[/quote]

And how would I go about getting the list of characters? There's no API function that does that. You'd have to log in with each one of them so that the addon records their name and the last time their mount was trained and then I'd have to do all the math of determining how long it'd be until those folks can train their mounts again. And then what happens when you decide that you don't like the character "xXKillerXx" because stamblades are horrible? He'll still show up in the list of characters that need to train their mount, because the game isn't aware of the existence of other characters that you may have on your account other than the one you're playing right then. You'd then have to manually prune your saved variables file, which is, quite honestly, kind of a pain, to remove them.

You could get fancy and set a date and after so many days of not seeing that character log in, it could drop off the list, but that means you'd have to remember to log in with each character fairly frequently. It's a lot of logic for not a whole lot of gain. It'd be a neat feature, but I'm not sure how it'd work.

I'll add an option to allow player's to choose how to display it.
Added the option and release 8.1.0 today.

I'll give it an install and see what's what.
While I see what you mean, I already draw The Elder Bar in the background layer, so I'm not sure how I could possibly make it any lower.

Lua Code:
  1. TEBTop:SetDrawLayer(DL_BACKGROUND)

My guess is that Hoft's addon also draws on this layer and loads first and therefore it is lower. Just a guess mind you. I'll try a couple of things and see if it makes a difference.

Couple bugs I've run into among the new features.

1) For crafts which have no research ongoing it is showing 115 days, rather than being blank.

My options for that are set to.
Display Text: On
Display Format: Simple
Only show timers while researching : Off
Only show shortest timer: On
Show all slots: Off


2) When only displaying the shortest time, if one of the timers for a research slot is empty (not researching), then the gadget shows the slot with an actively researching timer. (ie: If I have two slots in blacksmithing, and one slot has 1d of researching left, and the other slot is available/free, the gadget shows 1d ). Technically the shortest timer at that point would be the slot which is at 0, the free one.

-----------------

Which brings in a feature request for this gadget. It would be nice if when any research slot is free for a craft, you could have it use the Pulse gadget feature. Unless of course there is nothing left to research for that craft.
All good points, and all fixed in 8.0.3 that I just released!

I'll investigate the whole pulsing thing.
