PetKennel
Version: 5.1.4
by: ziggr [More]
PetKennel automatically dismisses pets when doing errands in town.

System Requirements:

Why PetKennel?
  • Sick of Twilight Matriarchs flap-flap-flapping in your face when trying to craft?
  • Wish you could automatically put away your warden's bear when you walk up to a daily writ turn-in crate?
  • Have you ever apologized in chat for your pets interfering with other players doing their daily crafting writs?
  • Wish you could dismiss pets with a single keystroke?

PetKennel automatically dismisses your combat and vanity pets upon common in-town interactions:
  • daily crafting writ board
  • crafting station
  • crafting writ turn-in crate
  • (non-assistant) bank
  • (non-assistant) merchants and guild traders
  • Rolis Hlaalu

By popular demand, PetKennel can also automatically dismiss your pets (usually just non-combat pets!) when you're out in the field:
  • dungeons & delves

KeyBinding

PetKennel also adds a keybinding to "Hide Pet".



Chat Output

PetKennel writes to chat when it dismisses your pet(s).



Options

If for some reason you want your big opaque bear to get in everybody's way, you can choose to disable PetKennel for whichever interaction you want to keep your pet active.



To Do
  • Assistants? It's amusing to see Tythis and Nuzhimeh chasing after crafters as they do their daily writs. Should I hide them?
  • No, there is no way to force other players to dismiss their pets. Perhaps politely ask them to install PetKennel?.

Thank You

Originally inspired by Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter which implements this same feature, but restricted to only when crafting writs. Some pet-hiding code copied verbatim from LazyWritCrafter.

You're quite welcome! Glad you find the add-on helpful. And I hope your headache is better now. Those are awful.

(Heh, yeah I noticed that right around the time I posted my reply, your original message disappeared. Since I was still planning to add the settings UI for keybinding, I decided to leave my reply up.)

Now my question :

Is this automatic as for Dolgubon addon or do i have to use as in Pet Dismiss the keybinding ?

Because i tested this two ways :

- I go to a crafting station, to a bank, or a vendor both pets stay up
- if i use the keybinding, then both pets vanish

I thought that the pet company would not be part of that right ?

But i may be using wrongly then lol :P ?
1. Hrm, the combat pet (left column, "ON") should have been dismissed upon interacting with a crafting station. As well as once you get past the first dialog with an (non-assistant) NPC bank or merchant and open the bank or store list UI. Might be a bug. Tell me more.

2. Oops. Keybinding is currently both pets with no way to have it leave your non-combat pet up. I'll add another row of settings UI for the keybinding so that you can use the keybinding for just the combat pet.

PetKennel 5.1.4 now has UI settings for keybinding

So that you can tell PetKennel that its keybinding is just for the combat pet, leave your non-combat pet alone.

Good idea. I'll probably add UI and settings for folks who want to automatically dismiss combat pets but keep their little kitty pets around in town. The hard part (for me!) is how to create two columns of checkboxes side-by-side in LibAddOnMenu2.

But as of today's version 5.1.2, PetKennel unfortunately dismisses non-combat (aka "vanity") pets and there's no way to just dismiss combat pets only.

Both add-ons work fine with each other. I tested a little bit and practice seems to match theory so far.

In theory: if PetKennel hides the pet before Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter gets to it, then Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter just skips over the hiding code and continues along its merry way. Same if Dolgubon gets to the pet before PetKennel.

Done. I just uploaded PetKennel 5.1.2 with a vanity-pet-only setting for dungeons and delves.

Thank you for this addon! Much appreciated.

One feature request: Dismiss non-combat pets inside dungeons (and delves).
You could maybe check via IsUnitInDungeon("player") at an event_player_activated callback.
