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.

    Hi! I have a giant problem with kgpanels! I can't load any texture. Tried a lot of textures (the ones I create myself + from packs for this addon that I downloaded) and none of them load. Have read FAQ + watched videos on youtube, but nothing helps. Tried downloading addon mannualy from curse + installed via WoWMatrix, but it is still the same. I really want to make this great addon to work propperly on my pc, so I need your help. What can I do to make it work?

    Hey guys, i have a problem with configuring kgpanels texture to correspond with my presence (i'm a dk). Found that Presence is not a stance but a buff but i lack the knowledge to make the script for on Load and on Event that i should if i want my idea to work. Please help me making it happen. General idea is : if i'm Frost Presence then this texture will be shown, else not. Going to configure 3 textures for my UI each for Presence. Will be great if you could help me. Thanks

    Not sure about the class coloring altho I have seen it mentioned here in previous posts on how to obtain that effect... altho to have your panel appear/disappear, simply Parent it to said frame ;)

    Hope that helps

    Evening Kagaro and friends.

    I have what I am sure is a simple problem, yet the solution evades me. (even after spending 2hrs'ish checking google and here)

    I use oUF for frames.

    I have created boarder/backdrops for all frames including party. I have parented and anchored everything correctly.

    Parent: oUF_PartyUnitButtonX (X being 1-4) Anchor: UIParent

    Everything works, I just seem to have a tiny annoyance.

    When I join group, Party Member 1 has their frame "framed and BG'd" but the others do not.

    Upon /console reloadui the rest all display properly.

    I am "assuming" this has to do with the frames spawning after KGpanels does it's check or something of the like.

    I'm pretty sure I read about something of this sort ages ago but I can not find anything of this nature in my current search.

    So, I thought I would post here and ask.

    Is there a way to remedy this without the need to reload my UI everytime I party/raid up? (I show party in raid. raid frames hidden)

    Appreciate any and all help.

    - Arrowsong

    ps. if there a script involved, please make sure to let me know where which parts go. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Hi. Em, what script should i have in kgps for my panel to appear/disappear when i have a target selected/deselected? Also what is the command to change panel background color?


    if UnitExists("target") == nil then
    local cl = UnitClassification("target")
    if (cl == "elite") or (cl == "worldboss") or (cl == "rareelite") then
    self:SetBackdropColor(0.1, 0.1, 0.1, 0.1) <-here i would like to change background color
    self:SetBackdropColor(1, 1, 1, 1)

    What i want is when i sellect a target the designated panel to appear, also for it to have a color matching the class of target :D (i want to improve the Zonker UI -soz a little help? thx)

    Hi guys, I'm trying to create a panel that will show only when I have a WIM window open.

    I've got other panels parented to various frames from different addons and they work fine, but WIM seems to have a peculiarity when it comes to frame names. When I have a single whisper open, parenting to WIM3_msgFrame1 works perfectly. When I get another whisper, the panel only shows when I'm on the tab for the first message. There doesn't seem to be any part of the WIM window that has the exact same frame name on all the tabs. Is there a way to have the panel called whenever WIM is open, no matter which tab I'm on?

    Thanks - The literal function worked great - I was able to get a bunch of data blocks off the screen.
