Create panels for customizing your UI, sucessor to eePanels

Wiki and FAQ

Sample Scripts

OnClick now provides a pressed and released variable you can check for.

if pressed then
  -- do mouse down actions
elseif released then
  -- do mouse up actions

This means your script will get called twice when someone clicks the panel.

Here is a youtube link to a video Tutorial

Ive created an Example Texture Pack.

This example pack is just a template. If you want to use it as a storage spot for your art, look at the read me file for directions on usage.

    Hi all,

    I have tried and tried this and feel hopelessly stupid. I'd like KGPanels using only these panels and artwork here: . Can someone coach me/tell me how to make it happen? I'd love to be able to utilize this addon! I read the example texture pack and the tutorial... but it's still not coming together for me. Thanks if you can help.

    Hi fellows, I have a background panel for my pet bar. First I tried to parent it to one of the bartender 4 pet bar buttons since I could not find a frame for the entire bar. But no matter how often I tried I could not get it to work. I solved it by using OnClick script instead, it works good for its purpose (when I click the bar it disapears and a button shows up and when I click the button the pet bar frame shows and the button goes away:

    Pet Bar script:

    if pressed then
    kgPanels:FetchFrame("Pet Bar"):Hide() 
    kgPanels:FetchFrame("button test"):Show()

    button test script:

    if pressed then
    kgPanels:FetchFrame("button test"):Hide() 
    kgPanels:FetchFrame("Pet Bar"):Show()

    Only thing is that when logging on or reloading ui both frames show, its a very small bother but was wondering if there is a easy way to make sure just the button shows at login and reload? )

    Having a bit of an issue with setting background (code or with the kgpanels config settings). the tile should be 32x32, as in the second image, but as you can see the first image is not tiling to 32x32, but somewhere 92x92, and after the first row, the tiling stops. I've tried just about everything I can find on this, SetVertTile(true) or anything like this, nothing seems to work...Please help!

    The Problem

    The Grid

    EDIT: Well, I've now walked away from KGPanels in favor of writing my own Addons (in no small part from what i have learned from using KG) But I was able to find a solution to this problem, after trial and error and lots of web searches:

    •"TOPLEFT",(Self or the frame your trying to setpoint to),"TOPLEFT",0,0)
    •"BOTTOMRIGHT",(Self or the frame your trying to setpoint to),"BOTTOMRIGHT",0,0)
    Good luck to all that are using this addon, use it as a learning tool toward greater things!

    @thrackley: Go

    Apparently the format of the file path has changed. I had to dig a bit to find the answer on the web...and I can't find it again, so, here's a recap.

    Try switching from double backslashes to a single forward slash. Also, no slashes at the beginning.

    Such as: Interface/Addons/kgpanels/YourArtworkFolder/yourimagename.tga

    Instead of:

    This fixed the green box problem for me.

    Thanks for a great addon.

    My graphics that work in live are broken in PTR testing. They now reflect huge green boxes. These are the same graphics files and have the same settings as before. Is there something I'm missing that should be fixed?

    Thanks, again.

    Hey, mot sure if i post this here... but I can be redirected if necessary.

    I am having issues getting my button for pvp to work. I did the same as all my other buttons.... my macro is worded: if pressed then TogglePVPFrame() end

    I have tried with a lowercase v and also tried many other different ways but the button will not click.

    any help would be appreciated

    thank you

    @Dragill: Go

    Open that image in Photoshop and save it as .PNG.

    Then you can use this site to convert that new .PNG to .TGA.

    Open WoW and type /kgpanel config.

    Import it to the Art Library.

    Go to Active Panels and Create a New. In the newly created panel go to "Texture Options" and select the image you just imported.

    Is there a way to move interface frames such as the Minimap around the screen when entering a vehicle?

    On "UNIT_ENTERED_VEHICLE" Minimap moves to x=100 y=200

    On "UNIT_EXITED_VEHICLE" Minimap moves back to initial position.

    Wanted to do the same for other stuff like Pitbull Player Frames.

    Can you help me out?
