I really don't know much about the coding of addons but if damage meters can run without lagging your client down too much it seems like having the estimated heals module communicate it's into into a channel that other clients could recieve it and have it listen in that channel for other client info would not be very difficult.
From what I do know about coding, the framework is already there for the estimated heals. Just a seperate function needs to be added to send/recieve the heal info and push it through the estimated heals framework that is already in place. I believe I read on a topic here somewhere that there was an ace library that was working on something like this to unify heal communications but I can't find it.

Jul 12, 2007I posted a request under the wishlist as directed but since there were no reqests there I am wondering if that is still the correct way to request a feature being added to pitbull.Posted in: Unit Frames
My request is for a communication protocol to be added into the estimated heals info that pitbull shows. Essencially allowing me to cast a heal and for another client to be able to see that heal incoming on their unit frames.
If this was added, having it be well documented would be nice so that other devs of other mods might be able to add functionality for their mod to recieve/transmit that information.
May 23, 2007I don't know much about the development of addons. Is there a standard communication protocal that has been developed. If so it would be cool for it to be an optional feature that each of these healing mods could have enabled to allow them to communicate with each other.Posted in: Unit Frames
May 22, 2007I'd like to request that some sort of communication feature be built in so that people also running Pitbull and the Heal Estimator can also see incoming heals. The ability to communicate with grid and healbot would be a giant bonus also.Posted in: Unit Frames
May 19, 2007I've just started experimenting with grid and my first impression is great.Posted in: Grid & Grid2
I play a holy priest and I currently use a mod called Healbot to do all of my healing. However, I like many of the features grid+clique offeres over healbot. However, my biggest reason for not switching over all the way is that I have not found an option nor am I sure it exists for grid to handle incoming heals the way healbot does.
Rather than just notifying that a heal is incoming, healbot also shades in the portion of the players healthbard that it expects the heal that is incoming to fill. Is this an option I've missed or is this available with one of the many grid addons out there?
