Text Replacement from all triggers #1048

  • MasterBash created this issue Sep 13, 2017

    It would be nice if we could see multiple triggers information on one icon. As a quick example :


    Dimensional Rift is a spell that has multiple stacks. It is easy to display stacks. Lets call it Trigger 1.

    However, I have the Lessons of the Space-Time shoulders, which creates a buff during the time Dimensional Rift is up. Lets call it Trigger 2.

    Due to the way that dynamic information works, I can only display the info of Trigger 1 or Trigger 2. It would be nice if we could display information of both triggers.


    "1. Text" - Trigger 1 information (stacks of the spell)

    "2. Text" - trigger 2 information (buff duration)


    Maybe this is doable with a custom function but I don't know how to.


    Another suggestion is the text alignment. It would be nice if we could align manually with X and Y for that too. I use 32x32 icons and when I use the "Bottom" text alignment, it is 3/4 of the way to the bottom, meaning it is still relatively close to the center of the icon. There is still plenty of space between the bottom of the icon and the text aligned to the bottom.

    In general please create separate tickets for separate issues. The seonc one is already tracked in https://www.wowace.com/projects/weakauras-2/issues/550

    Also, once we have this, we can use it for templates to show the charges of a combined buff/charges spell: https://www.wowace.com/projects/weakauras-2/issues/1236

    Setting aside the problem of actually being able to retrieve dynamic information from multiple triggers, there's also the question of which format that the replacement patterns for this would take. I'm personally in favor of "%%%d*%a+", where "%2p" is interpreted as "progress info from the second trigger", "%3unitCount" is "state.unitCount from the third triggerstate", and so on.

    See https://github.com/WeakAuras/WeakAuras2/pull/913 for work on implementing this, by the way.
