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.

    lemme knw if you figure anything out midgetmage55

    Yeah i spent about an hour trying everything i could think of to get them to show up in an actual panel. Eventually i just moved the files to a new folder. Opened my graphics editor and re-saved them without making any changes short of the names of the files (removed any capitalization basically) and importing them again to the addon. Not sure why but it worked.

    My only guess is there is something in my saved variables causing the issue. And being that i have roughly 20 saved layouts deleting it wasnt much of an option. Suffice to say everything is working now.

    I have a back up of my WTF folder from 3 or so days ago. I may experiment with it and see if i can track the problem down.

    Will post back if i find anything.

    Wierd Midgetmage55, if it shows up im the preivew then it did correctly load. Have you tried setting the background type settings i.e. None?

    Running in to an oddity. I'm adding some background textures to my library and they show up on mouse over just fine. When i go to add them to a panel however nothing appears. I just get the standard panel. Changing color, opacity or anything else works as you would expect with the exception of the art not showing. It only happens to one specific set of textures. And for all versions of them. The rest of them work as intended.

    I'm certain the textures are set up properly for showing in game as i can load them in a copy of eepanels 2 i still have around for some reason.

    I made sure that im up to the current version before posting.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: Just did a test and if i tile the image i can at least see it but as soon as i turn off tiling it disappears again.

    I was wondering if any of you could help me.

    I need a script that will remove a backdrop for my unitframe when I have no target and show the backdrop when I have a target. I have tried a few of the commands on the sample scripts site, but I can't seem to get any of them to work. Please help me.

    I am trying to create my own UI (with some help with art) and I am getting stuck. If you look at the left side of the UI you will notice that it is transparent and very dark. On the right side I have color added but it shows behind the dragon, which I am trying to avoid. I would like the free flying dragon on the left with the brightness of the dragon on the right. Is this possible?

    /print GetMouseFocus():GetName()

    DEAD USEFUL when trying to attach panels to (sorry for my lack of terminology) "things".

    Could you guys help me with a simple script for kgPanels. I want to create a panel to "frame" the party name plates/portraits for when I'm in a group. I saw in your example scripts that you have this, however it isn't working for me (I copied and pasted exactly as it was posted):

    Adjusting Panels based on Raid or 5 Main party In each Panel set the OnLoad script

    self:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD") self:RegisterEvent("PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED") self:RegisterEvent("RAID_ROSTER_UPDATE")

    Then in each Panel OnEvent script:

    local pmems = GetNumPartyMembers() local rmems = GetNumRaidMembers() if (pmems < 1 and rmems < 1) or (pmems > 0 and pmems < 6 and rmems < 6) then self:Hide() else self:Show() end

    Has anyone gotten this to work? Are there any other modifications I have to use with this script for it to work - all I did was create a new panel, entered in the OnLoad and OnEvent script and tested it by entering a party - no panel :(

    to detect in your in a raid or party

    local inRaid = UnitInRaid("player")
    local inParty = UnitInParty("player")
    if inRaid and GetNumRaidMembers() > 9 then
       -- in 10 man raid
    elseif inRaid and GetNumRaidMembers() > 20 then
       -- in 20 man raid
    elseif inParty and GetNumPartyMembers() > 4 then
       -- in a 5 man party

    Thats the general gist of it, the numbers to check for are up to you.

    to Check for a your pet

    local hasPet = UnitExists("pet")
