A row of Fortress blocks

Fortress is a display addon for LDB data feeds. It shows each plugin as a block, which is freely movable and can stick to other blocks. Blocks can be unstuck by holding the ctrl-key while dragging them.

Use /fortress or /ft to open the configuration (also accessible via Main Menu -> Interface -> Addons -> Fortress).

The configuration has two parts: The master settings and the individual plugin settings. At first each option is controlled by the master settings and therefore it has the same effect for each plugin. Once you change something individually for one plugin, this setting is no longer controlled by the master mode (for this plugin).
You can select the mode for each option at the "Select master" tab in each plugin's config screen.

    There are two ways to hide a block, a) really hide it or b) just make it invisible. With b) things like 'show on mouseover' still work, a really hidden block does not receive such input events.

    The name of a block is composed by the prefix LegoFortress followed by the name of the DataBroker the block holds. So for Broker_Clock, the associated block would be LegoFortressBroker_Clock. You can get the name of a block by holding the mouse over it and executing the following command (e.g. in a macro per keybinding):

    /dump GetMouseFocus():GetName()

    Here are the commands to hide:



    or b)

    block.hidden = true

    To show a block again use a)


    or b)

    if block.hasText then
    block.hidden = false

    Is there a command I can use from, say, a macro or kgPanel, to hide individual blocks?

    I got these two errors upon logging in after downloading the latest version (1.11-beta4-1): [2009/03/22 17:44:09-248-x1]: AceLocale-3.0: Fortress: Missing entry for 'Enable new plugins': Fortress-1.11-beta4-1-gf3e0682 \Options.lua:210: in main chunk

    [2009/03/22 17:44:09-248-x1]: AceLocale-3.0: Fortress: Missing entry for 'Enable plugins by default, when they are loaded the first time.': Fortress-1.11-beta4-1-gf3e0682 \Options.lua:211: in main chunk

    I just recently replaced Fubar with LDB and am using Fortress, and am very happy with the decision. Thanks very much for this great addon!
