I'm currently adding quests items buttons to tomQuest2 quest tracker, I'll skin those buttons with Button Facade if the user have it.
Almost everything is ready I just want to add skining options related to tomQuest2 directly in tomQuest2 option panel. Is there any way to generate the ace3 option table directly like "GetSinkAce3OptionsDataTable" does for LibSink-2.0 or do I have to build it manually?
I have longed for a way to skin those item buttons for a while now, really dun like blizz button borders.
I believe I don't have any Addon to display LDB settings. Any recommendations?
I mentioned 3 buttons on previous posts, they are YurrCombatLog, Button Facade, and one more which I can't remember since my server is still down.
I also noticed another icon on my most bottom right of my screen, I believed caused by ArkInventory. It's semi transparent and I think I can turn it off.
Perhaps I'll provide some screen shots. Maybe that will be helpful.
If you see the "buttons/boxes" you have a LDB display, if not you would not be able to see them. Try turning of a few addons at a time (not couting the ones u see "buttons" for) untill they go away, one of those then should be the one generating the display.
Kerecha >> I'd love to. Would you please show me how?
Lets start with LDB. That stands for library right?
LDB is LibDataBroker, and there are loads of addons that displays information using this system, thje display is done using a display addon like fortress, buttonbin, caroucel and many more, but also fubar and Titan (these use an extra addon to display them, atleast fubar, not sure about titan).
Basilcy u need to open whatever addon it is u use to display LDB things, open it and look for an option listing what feeds to display, and then dissable the ones u don't want. Can't say anymore details since i don't know what display addon you are using.
I've tried MRGN, and disliked it because (1) it tends to close prematurely, (2) it's very difficult to use when half the launchers use Tablet for tooltips, and (3) it shows up on a frame strata/level below ButtonBin.
Not all the addons I use have launchers or slash commands to open their options panel anyway, and most of the time if I'm going to be changing my BF skin, I'm changing other parts of my UI too, so the options frame is already open.
Hides all of em nasty launchers in a single block, and still gives full acess to all the tooltips.
I need it because Yata does not work the way you want it to work.
I'm not the author of Yata, I just wanted to help people posting in this thread having the problem that their addon was not skinned on startup.
And since you keep your opinion this is the only thing I can offer them... and no I'm not gonna fix all addons that have problems, I'm lazy as well ;)
Just write a plugin for Yata if you want fix it, its not a librarys job to make sure addons implement it correctly.. its the addons job to make sure of that.
Hi! I just tried out this mod last night after using cycircled. The great thing about cycircled was that it would also skin my totem, shield and weapon buff timers from TotemTimers. Anyway to get ButtonFacade to work with TotemTimers too?
Should be the sam as for all other addons, support for BF needs to be coded into the addon yu want skinned, either native by the author, or as an additional plugin by anyone who can code it.
I am having a problem with ButtonFacade not saving my settings. Every single time I reload my UI, or logout, I lose all of my color settings which is getting frustrating. I'm attempting to use a black "border" and "glow" color for my buffs and buttons, while using a red "border" and "glow" color for my debuffs, and purple for the temporary buffs on my weapons. This is using Bongos3 and Buffalo as the mods I am attempting to skin. The skin I'm using is ButtonFacade_Caith.
This is what ButtonFacade.lua looks like in my SavedVariables folder:
My primary point of confusion is... where is the color data supposed to be stored? Because while I'm not expert, there appears to be no color information in the above code, which only leads me to believe that everytime I adjust my settings in Warcraft, nothing regarding the colors I want is being saved to this file. What is the syntax for including color data, and perhaps I can input that data on my own by hand. The same thing happened when I was using SBF instead of Buffalo and I assumed it had to do with SBF wanting to include it's own colors.
As already stated in the thread ButtonFacade does NOT store skinning data, each addon being skinned stores the settings for the specific addon.
