    i might rework it so that it's anchored to the main frame....

    I hope so :)

    the reason i don't disable the blizzard frame is because this mod doesn't actually DO any crafting. leaving the blizzard frame up means that people can play with this mod and still have the ability to craft things. once i implement the actual processing, i'll disable the blizz frame.

    i'm still debating the attached/detached queue list. i might rework it so that it's anchored to the main frame....

    Ok I am a little confused. I been trying this out and the looks of it is fine so far (I been a Skillet user for quite a while and looking for a replacement) However re-reading the description above is this addon supposed to be a total replacement of the Blizzard tradeskill window? Cause whenever I open a tradeskill I get BOTH the Gnomeworks window AND the Blizzard tradeskill window at the same time. As commented before the queue window doesn't close with the escape key which is a minor annoyance but nice to have once you get around to it. Also I like to see, eventually, support for Ackis Recipe List in terms of the scan button to open ARL and support for Armorcraft as I commonly craft items for my alts and such. So far so good with the polishing and look forward to a solid version.

    rumbah: try again. my .toc was still not right but should be fixed now.

    thortok: you can right-click on column headers to filter, left click to sort. i need to add a "flat" layout as well so you can see all recipes sorted together instead of in categories.

    Thought I'd give this a try.

    It opens the default blizzard frame as well as the addon frame when I open a tradeskill.

    I like the feature of switching tradeskills within the addon frame. Cool.

    Not sure how I feel about having the queue as a separate window. Wasn't prepared for that but it looks like it could be handy.

    I'd like to be able to sort the list by difficulty instead of category. And the additional option of hiding gray and green recipes, too.

    I couldn't find the options anywhere. Right clicking only allows me to lower or raise the frame (which I don't expect I'll ever have a need for?)

    Other than that, looks good, no LUA errors, looking forward to watching this progress.

    r17 + r95

    lua errors are gone, good work!

    One minor bug:

    "Queue all" will only put one item on the crafting list, regardless of how many I could craft.

    new revision is up.

    i'm back to working on the queue system.

    i ditched the "needs" grouping mechanism in favor of simply having missing reagents that are craftable present their potential craft sources below them. this makes for a lot less text jumbled in the queue and i think still presents the information you need.

    i'm not sure how readable the queue is, tho. this idea of presenting all options (craft it or buy it) seems reasonable, but it's hard to say how successful it is. i suppose filtering could make a difference .. show/hide puchases, show/hide crafting. also, lsw integration could conceivably present a option to only show the best path.

    my goal is to have the queue break down into a shopping list that would tell you that you need x bolts of cloth and y pieces of raw cloth in such a way that you recognize the two entries are exclusive so that buying x bolts reduces the need of the y raw cloth and vice versa. it's a fine idea, but i'm vague as to how it's all going to come together...

    btw, you can left/right click on the # column in the queue table to increase/decrease the process count. and you can clear the queue. but processing is still missing.

    yay. finally...

    i'll figure out that libpt thing... looks like some itemID is set to 0 somewhere...

    btw, my 5cent regarding the closing options:

    - queue empty: 1 x escape (or the close button of the gw window) closes gw and the queue window

    - queue not empty: 1 x escape (") closes gw, queue window stays open

    - queue not empty: 2 x escape (") closes gw and queue window
