LFD Tooltip

Displays the status dialog from an LDB instead of the minimap icon.

Also, thanks to Antiarc, display a nice tooltip showing how long a role can expect to wait for a group, also shows a text based status for each roll for your proposed group.

    @Velandris: It doesn't work with BG queues, only LFD. http://www.wowace.com/addons/broker_lfd/localization/ indicates that it has been translated to everything except Simplified Chinese and Spanish (although I'm sure the Latin American Spanish would be close). I do not know of any localization issues.

    does this also work for bgs, and have there been any issues with this addon not working in other localizations of WoW?

    When I blew away my SV file I only received one error, it was from some left over code that I forgot to clean up. It's cleaned up now in v1.3.1, and I didn't receive any errors when loading with a blank SV file. Thank you for the report.

    Hmm, okay, thanks for the reports, I'll look into it as soon as I get home from work.

    In my case, initial variable was following and made errors. (this is the first time I install this addon)

    Broker_LFDDB = nil
    

    Replacing nil with {} seems to be the solution (no errors but I'm not sure this is correct).

    Broker_LFDDB = {}

    Just installed version 1.3 on my system and it ended up creating a lot of errors referencing Broker_LFDDB. Was able to stop the errors by installing 1.2.2, running that, then updating to 1.3.

    It seems that it is not creating the initial variables properly in 1.3

    I have two suggestions for this addon:

    1) Option to disable the giant default Blizzard window that appears in the middle of the screen when I mouse over Broker_LFD. It's ugly and (mostly) just duplicates the information in the plugin text and tooltip.

    2) Option to show how long you've been in the queue in the tooltip, separate from the option you already have to show that in the plugin text. This would finish rendering the data in the giant Blizzard frame redundant in my setup.

    And for the record, I'm very grateful you made this save settings globally instead of per character. Like Pseudopath, my UI is pretty consistent across all my toons, and it drives me crazy when I have to configure things the same way for 15 toons.

    Bah, apparently one of the libraries used another library what wasn't included. I believe it should be function now, I've tested with only Broker_LFD and a simple broker display addon as my only addons, so it should work now. If you continue to experience problems I don't believe it's LFD's fault.

    Thanks but this time it threw massive amounts of errors.
