    Sadly, this was all it told me. I need to see to getting a mod that gives more advanced error reporting. Once I do, I'll come back here and post the full error.

    What do *you* think the purpose of panels are? They're just art and textures. Frames do things on their own. Hide/show, movable, etc. You can just make the panels do those things *too* with parenting and scripting.


    Well, that explains much of my confusion. XD No wonder I had no clue what I was doing.

    I'm pretty dumb, haha.

    Undock your FuBar and make sure it's unlocked (it is by default). Drag the edges to resize and drag the FuBar around your screen. (edit: you can also resize when it's still attached to the top/bottom)

    Chat frames - iirc, minichat has an alpha setting. Or... Maybe he just doesn't have anything in his chat window atm?


    Ok, so... wait... What is the purpose of the panels then? It sounds like I can do everything I want natively, so what benefit do the panels give me? I'm clearly missing something here.

    Ahh, that would explain much then. Hmm...

    Then I suppose I should look into things that HAVE been done then, huh?

    http://xs119.xs.to/xs119/07393/WoWScrnShot_092507_230251.jpg

    This was the UI in particular that pointed me to eePanels2, and does bring up some of what I'd like to do. The things that caught my interest were how a FuBar is bound to a panel and the FuBar is sized with the panel. I'm not sure if this is something FuBar can do natively, it's certainly not a functionality I've found in its menus if it does.

    I also noted how his chat boxes are entirely gone. When I looked over the list of mods this person used and how they worked, they were using "MiniChat" which only minimizes a chat to a single line, not make it disappear entirely. I am assuming he has his chat bound to a panel and is making the panel disappear via lua in such a way that it makes his chat disappear too. I don't quite know, thus why I'm trying to learn from here.

    1) Try parenting the eePanel to MinimapCluster (if you're using a minimap addon, I'm not sure if this works)

    2) Dunno what you mean. When you set the parent, the anchor will auto-change to be the same (you can then change the anchor if you want). The wiki explains what the difference between them is: eePanel visibility/opacity is inherited from the parent, positioning is inherited/related from the anchor.

    3) Try using the macro over one of the buttons, and use the button as a parent, then manually size the panel to be the size of your buttonbar.


    Sorry, I think my new-ness is making me word things badly.

    I'm currently trying to set-up panels with these mods:

    PitBull
    Bartender3
    SimpleMinimap

    I did manage to figure out everything in regards to parents and anchors, as well as found out what my deal with #2 was. It was just not having the strata lined properly, so instead of grabbing my minimap (which was what I was working with at the time), it was grabbing the panel.

    Now, what I'm trying to understand is how to make a panel that will, say, carry three of my spell bars. When I move the panel, all three spell bars move with it. Now, I know I can anchor a panel to one spell bar and moving that one bar will move the panel, but how would I get the other two bars to move with the panel? This is what I'm currently trying to grasp in regards to #3.

    #1 proved to be helpful as well, thanks. :)

    God, I hate being such a newb at something...

    I only recently installed Bartender3, but I've been finding myself having an odd error. Every time I go online, I am given this:

    Interface\AddOns\Bartender3\libs\AceOO-2.0\AceOO-2.0.lua:734: AceComm-2.0: AceComm-2.0 requires AceEvent-2.0


    I checked the libs folder, and AceEvent-2.0 is there.

    The wiki has a bunch of info on parenting, including the macro you can use to find out a frame's name (so you can parent/anchor to it).

    If you want to parent to a specific mod and are having problems, seach this thread for the addon's name, and see if you get a hit.


    I found the macro moments after making my post, but it's not been of much help to me since then. I tried to set up my minimap to a panel, but I couldn't actually move the minimap itself with it.

    When parenting and anchoring, how do you keep whatever the panel is attached to with the panel?

    Also, what do I do when I'm using a mod like Bartender3, which doesn't give me the bar itself but rather a single button? Are there ways I can find the window name for the entire bar?

    Ok, so I'm fairly new to this sort of customization of the WoW UI, and frankly I'm just lost here. Despite my best efforts to try and figure out what I'm doing, I've only figured out how to bind one thing to a window: My player window. However, even then I don't think I am doing it right. I look around and I see people who bind their spell bars, their minimap, and a large variety of things to panels. I'd like to ask if there is anything out there for beginners, like myself, to learn how to use the mod.

    I will add that the tutorial, even if for eePanel, doesn't work. The website is currently suspended.
