< OptionHouse

This page is dedicated to example widgets for OptionHouse. There will also be code for easily making the code work with your options.

This code block provides RegisterCheckOption and RegisterSliderOption which take a get, set, and help function. The get function just returns what the value should be for the widget (checked or SetValue status), set is called whenever the value of the widget changes. Finally the option help function is called when the widget is moused-over. The mouse-over action is actually delayed to behave more like other UI elements outside of WoW. The code doesn't do any error checking so as such it is only provided as is. It has been pointed out that the behavior for the tooltips when using the help function is not the default in wow. As such, you can just set the tooltipText and not provide a help function to Register*Option, this will force the default behavior of the widgets os defined in the CreateCheckButton and CreateSlider.

local RegisterCheckOption, RegisterSliderOption
do -- put everything in a do..end block to make it private
	-- this could be any frame you want it to be you don't need the OnUpdate function for
	--  and will be shown with your options.
	local visFrame = CreateFrame("Frame")
	local helps = {} -- for storing help stuff
	-- timeout is how long before we forget we were showing, timeToShow is how
	-- long before we actually show, these values seem fairly sane
	local timeOut, timeToShow = 2.0, 0.5
	local totalElapsed, showTooltip, state = 0
	local onUpdate = function(frame, elapsed)
		totalElapsed = totalElapsed + elapsed
		if showTooltip then
			if totalElapsed > timeToShow and state == 1 then -- actually show stuff
				helps[showTooltip](showTooltip)
				state = 2
				totalElapsed = 0
			end
			-- we need to reshow the tooltip quickly
			if totalElapsed < timeOut and state == 2 then 
				helps[showTooltip](showTooltip)
				state = 2
				totalElapsed = 0
			end
		else
			if totalElapsed > timeOut then -- reset our timeout
				state = 1
				visFrame:SetScript("OnUpdate", nil)
			end
		end
	end
	local registerHelp = function(frame, helpFunc)
		helps[frame] = helpFunc
	end
	local showHelp = function(frame)
		showTooltip = frame
		totalElapsed = 0
		if state ~= 2 then state = 1 end
		if visFrame then
			visFrame:SetScript("OnUpdate", onUpdate)
		end
	end
	local hideHelp = function()
		totalElapsed = 0
		showTooltip = nil
		state = 2
		GameTooltip:Hide()
	end
	RegisterCheckOption = function(frame, get, set, help)
		frame:SetScript("OnClick", function(self) set(self:GetChecked() or false) end )
		frame:SetScript("OnShow", function(self) self:SetChecked(get()) end )
		if help then
			registerHelp(frame, help)
			frame:SetScript("OnEnter", showHelp)
			frame:SetScript("OnLeave", hideHelp)
		end
	end
	RegisterSliderOption = function(frame, get, set, help)
		frame:SetScript("OnValueChanged", function(self) set(self:GetValue()) end )
		frame:SetScript("OnShow", function(self) self:SetValue(get()) end )
		if help then
			registerHelp(frame, help)
			frame:SetScript("OnEnter", showHelp)
			frame:SetScript("OnLeave", hideHelp)
		end
	end

WidgetsEdit

CheckBoxEdit

This checkbox is a nameless replica of the OptionsCheckBoxTemplate as seen here.

local function CreateCheckButton(par)
	local f = CreateFrame('CheckButton', nil, par)
	f:SetHeight(32)
	f:SetWidth(32)
	f.text = f:CreateFontString(nil, nil, "GameFontNormalSmall")
	f.text:SetPoint("LEFT", f, "RIGHT", -2, 0)
	local t = f:CreateTexture()
	f:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-CheckBox-Up")
	f:SetPushedTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-CheckBox-Down")
	f:SetHighlightTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-CheckBox-Highlight")
	f:GetHighlightTexture():SetBlendMode("ADD")
	f:SetCheckedTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-CheckBox-Check")
	f:SetDisabledCheckedTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-CheckBox-Check-Disable")
	f:SetHitRectInsets(0, -100, 0, 0)
	f:SetScript("OnEnter", function(self)
		if self.tooltipText then
			GameTooltip:SetOwner(this, "ANCHOR_RIGHT")
			GameTooltip:SetText(this.tooltipText, nil, nil, nil, nil, 1)
		end
		if self.tooltipRequirement then
			GameTooltip:AddLine(this.tooltipRequirement, "", 1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
			GameTooltip:Show()
		end
	end )
	f:SetScript("OnLeave", function(self) GameTooltip:Hide() end)
	return f
end

SliderEdit

This function returns a frame that is a nameless replica of the OptionsSliderTemplate provided by Blizzard.

local bg = {
	bgFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\UI-SliderBar-Background",
	edgeFile = "Interface\\Buttons\\UI-SliderBar-Border",
	tile = true,
	tileSize = 8,
	edgeSize = 8,
	insets = { left = 3, right = 3, top = 6, bottom = 6 }
}
local function CreateSlider(par)
	local f = CreateFrame('Slider', nil, par)
	f:SetBackdrop(bg)
	f:SetWidth(128)
	f:SetHeight(17)
	f:SetOrientation("HORIZONTAL")
	f:SetHitRectInsets(0, 0, -10, -10)
	local fs = f:CreateFontString(nil, "ARTWORK", "GameFontNormalSmall")
	fs:SetPoint('BOTTOM', f, "TOP", 0, 2)
	f.text = fs
	fs = f:CreateFontString(nil, "ARTWORK", "GameFontHighlightSmall")
	fs:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", f, "BOTTOMLEFT", 2, 3)
	f.low = fs
	fs = f:CreateFontString(nil, "ARTWORK", "GameFontHighlightSmall")
	fs:SetPoint("TOPRIGHT", f, "BOTTOMRIGHT", -2, 3)
	f.high = fs
	local text = f:CreateTexture()
	text:SetTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-SliderBar-Button-Horizontal")
	text:SetHeight(32)
	text:SetWidth(32)
	f:SetThumbTexture(text)
	f.thumb = text
	f:SetScript("OnEnter", function(self)
		if self.tooltipText then
			GameTooltip:SetOwner(this, "ANCHOR_RIGHT")
			GameTooltip:SetText(this.tooltipText, nil, nil, nil, nil, 1)
		end
		if self.tooltipRequirement then
			GameTooltip:AddLine(this.tooltipRequirement, "", 1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
			GameTooltip:Show()
		end
	end )
	f:SetScript("OnLeave", function(self) GameTooltip:Hide() end)
	return f
end
