Gnomish Yellow Pages rev 32

The Gnomish Yellow Pages will monitor all chat traffic to identify people advertising trade skills. As trade skill ads are identified, they are recorded and stored for later retrieval.

type: /gyp

to bring up a window with all information in an easy to read table.

strangers names appear in white guildmates are displayed in green friends are displayed in yellow

anybody in your local zone is shown in cyan

all offline players are red

the row of trade skill buttons will access the entire database of trade recipes so you can search for whatever recipe you wish. click to open whatever trade skill browser you use.

when browsing a trade skill, selecting a recipe will cause gyp to update the trade link color to light blue if that recipe is contained in that link. also any searches in the trade skill browser will be reflected in the gyp link color -- links that contain none of the recipes returned by the search will be dark yellow; normal yellow links indicate that at least one of the recipes in the browser window matches the trade link.

    I got a problem, with GYP activated it keeps opening a /who list every few seconds.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Wow! I barely even recognize lib-ScrollingTable anymore! haha. Good work, that looks really nice! I'm commenting to let you know that lib-ScrollingTable can now be embedded properly as a library. :) Hopefully that will let you package the library with your mod as-is. And if you need extra functionality, please write up a ticket!

    when you say explode, you just mean it collects lots of data, right?

    you can filter the display by right-clicking the headers.

    player filtering options are:

    "show offline" -- uncheck to only show players currently online "show strangers" -- uncheck to only show friends/guildmates

    you can also filter by trade level, explicit profession, and age of link...

    at some point (soon i hope) i'll add the ability to ignore or purge links by the same kind of system. in the meantime, you can hand delete items you don't want. drag-clicking (or shift clicking) will select multple entries -- delete/backspace to delete them.

    there is no limit. i can add a filter option to the player filtering (right click the player column header) to only show friends or guildmates (or both).

    that would be lovely with the friend/guildie filter cause atm.. just loggin into dalaran = gyp nearly explodes with all the links in trade chan :)

    well, at this point, i've removed libtradelinks from my system so that's not necessary anymore. good to know, tho.

    lilsparky, the .pkgmeta can get stuff from wowi's svn... not sure if that helps.

    That'd be great :D

    Although I wonder how big this thing can get after a few days in dalaran. :S

    Is there currently a limit on how many entries it will take? Also could you prioritize keeping guild/friend's trade skill and only bump off ones from strangers in trade.
