145 - Currency display improvements

I noticed that you recently started making a number of improvements to AdiBags, so I thought I'd throw out some ideas for a few more.

  • Font and color selection:
    You've added an option to change the font for the section headers/etc., but not for the gold and currency display. It would also be nice if we could change the colors of the various types of strings as well (separate color options for section headers and currency).
  • Tooltips:
    It would be helpful if the actual in-game tooltips were displayed for each currency on mouseover. While the icon does a great job of differentiating the various types of currency—it doesn't explicitly identify them. This would be especially useful for checking weekly caps and learning about currencies that you are unfamiliar with.
  • Number separation:
    As I'm sure you're aware, seeing large numbers without separation requires extra brain power to identify just how large they are.

    You can make use of DECIMAL_SEPERATOR and LARGE_NUMBER_SEPERATOR to ensure they work properly in all locales. You can also use the IsEuropeanNumbers() function instead.

    Thank you for the additions you've made!

    • Font and color selection:
      Can the font size be increased in increments of 1 instead of 4? I hope you can find a way to overide the font for the MoneyFrameTemplate without having to create your own money frame.
    • Tooltips:
      I understand that there is only one frame for all of the currencies. What I meant to suggest is that the currency tooltips would override the normal tooltip only when mousing over the icon for each currency similarly to the way Blizzard does within their TokenUI. They make each icon a button. However, I'm pretty sure that you could also make them a link (e.g., "|Hcurrency:390|h|TInterface\\Icons\\PVPCurrency-Conquest-Horde:14:14:2:0|t|h") and locally overide OnHyperlinkEnter and OnHyperlinkLeave to display a tooltip.
    • Number separation:
      I didn't know that function existed. Can you also concatenate a space (probably excessive) to the end of each string or use a small offset on the textures? There is absolutely no separation between the numbers and icons currently.

    • Font and color selection: added for currency. I'm using a standard money from for money so I'll check how to update it.
    • Tooltips: there is only one frame for all currencies, so there can be only one tooltip. So either it should show all currencies either none.
    • Number separation: Blizzard's BreakUpLargeNumber is now used to format the number.
