Displays the remaing cooldown of the action you tried to use. Type /cdtg for help, /cdtg config for configuration.

CooldownToGo displays the cooldown on the last action/spell/item you tried to use (and failed due to it being on cooldown). The display consists of the icon of the action and a countdown showing the cooldown time remaining. The display fades after a configurable period, and it pops up again when the cooldown is (almost) finished. It is possible to set up an ignore-list for abilities you don't want to track, and a grace-period before the ability is checked for cooldown (for button-smashers).

After installing, CooldownToGo will be enabled by default, and unlocked, so you'll see a semi-transparent rectangle in the center of your UI that you can drag to a position you like. After finding a good place for it you should lock the frame with /cdtg locked, so that it won't eat your mouse clicks.

    It's not possible presently in a "sane" way. You can hack it though with something like:

    /run CooldownToGo.db.profile.holdTime=10000

    (just do not touch the holdTime from the config options afterwards).

    Open a ticket if you'd like this feature better supported :)

    What if you don't want the CD timer to disappear after X seconds, but stay until the cooldown is gone? Is that possible?

    Just change line 12 in Options.lua:

     local MaxFontSize = 40


    ps: it might cause some side effects though, but I can't test now, I kinda suspended wow for a while.

    Hi, this still rocks and I have just a tiny feature request if I may: would it be possible to raise the maximum scale, so I can have a nice big button if I choose to. Thanks for all your work!

    @andreasg: Hm, I didn't want to update too often to preserve teh precious cycles :) Do you think a 3-level (low = 0.1, medium=0.05, high = 0) setting would be enough (as exposing "UpdateDelay" as-is would be unfriendly for the non-dev users, I think)?

    I'll see what I can do about the grace period thing.

    cheers, mitch

    Hi there, very nice addon.

    I was wondering if you could change or make an option for controlling the UpdateDelay, as 0.1 isn't often enough to make the fade out animation smooth.

    Also, I was wondering if you could add a grace-period of like 0.5s after a spell has been used where it won't trigger a cooldown, because if you spam push a spell it will trigger the CooldownToGo at a time where you don't really mean to.
