OH ok. yeah. mebe if the buffer for top of frame was done so that it clamped a few points higher than normal?
name='Clamp chat windows to screen',
desc='Clamps chat windows to the screen so it won\'t happen that they minimize or maximize out of it.',
get=function() return self.db.profile.ClampToScreen end,
Thats the section that handles clamping, right? (i assume, cause thats what it says, i'm no programmer tho.) Is there a way to set a vertical buffer so that the chat edit box and the tabs arent off screen? mebe something like 10 pix (or whatever the measurement is that is used for this stuff)
OK. now, what i would LOVE would be to put the chat frame up in the upper corner of my screen. However, when the frame had clamping on, it pushes the tabs off the edge of the screen. This makes it a problem to switch tabs, move the frame, etc.
Another thing i have a small, but easily rectifiable problem with is how sometimes on login, the frames will start minimized, and wont ever maximize to the correct value. they maximize to that "smart minimize" thing, which is uaually one or two lines. And what i have to do is unlock my chat frames and then resize them, and lock them back again so that it maximizes correctly.
My assumption is, for some stupid reason, blizzard has made it so you cant fix these lil tweaks. I dont get any taint or error messages from this tho. everything else works great! i really love the alpha fades for minimize, and the combat watch for messages. other than those two things, the addon works very well.
I hope this helps, and i really didnt mean to harm your work by declaring "dead" so readily!
thank you, and please if i can help fix this, let me know what you need exactly.
Is it possible to add attaching frames to the bottom of another frame as well as the top? This would totally be awesome.
wait you mean like have one maximize down and the other up? i think theres an option to do that in the menu... but i dont want to change mine right now lol. its so buggy, it might jump off the screen again.
NOTE!: the clamping and things are still broken. my assumption at this point is this mod is no longer developed. :( sad but it happens.
just a lil bump. I'm having trouble with minichat not maximizing mesages after login, i have to unlock the window and resize it, and the clamping is still an issue. No errors generated though, but i have it set up so that its not much to worry about.
On that note, i cant get it to just alpha fade when messages are sent to and from, and just not have it max/min the window.... bleargh lol. If there is an error site, i cant find it.
Yeah, for some reason, when it minimises up, it makes the tab area jump about an inch up my screen. im not sure if its cause im using prat and simple combat log, but theres no errors generated, so im not sure what it really is....
anyway, if there is a different place to report things, please point it out... its not on the wiki page...
well, i figured out it has to do with clamping. it wanted to clamp the box to the top and left, and put the tabs off the screen by doing so. but when i turned off clamping, the whole thing jsut shot right off the screen... :( lol oh well. mebe the clamping can be changed so the tabs are the clamp point, and not hte box?
ok, but i did it the hard way, and got it out by some weird stuff. Anyway, the auto minimise was set to up, and for some reason, when it does minimise, it shoots all the way to the top of the screen! lol. im gonna delete the savedvars, and see what happens this time!
hey, nifty lil add. I think this is a good addon, but i have a problem. I got the damn thing stuck in the upper right hand corner lol.
id there a way that you might be able to get this to be a drawer? kinda like, the whole thing slides out from the side of the screen, instead of rolling up into one line?
im no coder, so i dunno how complicated it is, but from what i heard, it seems to be complicated. lol, i just wanted to see what you thought.
but if you have an idea about gettin the box unstuck, id love to hear it.... i tried goin into the layout file, and changing the coords, but i prolly did it wrong, or just didnt do it right... lol, anyway, thanks
