MainMenuMicroButton: Override Textures
 
Hi,

im using the following code to override the micro menu button textures:

Lua Code:
  1. local buttonIndex = {
  2.     [1] = "MainMenuMicroButton",
  3.     [2] = "CharacterMicroButton",
  4.     [3] = "SpellbookMicroButton",
  5.     [4] = "TalentMicroButton",
  6.     [5] = "AchievementMicroButton",
  7.     [6] = "QuestLogMicroButton",
  8.     [7] = "GuildMicroButton",
  9.     [8] = "LFDMicroButton",
  10.     [9] = "EJMicroButton",
  11.     [10] = "CollectionsMicroButton",
  12.     [11] = ((not C_StorePublic.IsEnabled()) and (GetCurrentRegionName() == "CN")) and "HelpMicroButton" or "StoreMicroButton",
  13.     [12] = (C_StorePublic.IsEnabled() and (GetCurrentRegionName() ~= "CN")) and "HelpMicroButton"
  14. }
  15.  
  16. function MicroBlizzard:UpdateButtons()
  17.     TABLES:ForEach(_G.MICRO_BUTTONS, function(i, _)
  18.         local button = _G[buttonIndex[i]]
  19.         local db = self.db.profile.buttons.entries[buttonIndex[i]].texture
  20.  
  21.         button:GetNormalTexture():SetTextureFromDb(db, CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Normal)
  22.         button:GetPushedTexture():SetTextureFromDb(db, CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Pushed)
  23.  
  24.         if (button:GetDisabledTexture()) then
  25.             button:GetDisabledTexture():SetTextureFromDb(db, CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Disabled)
  26.         end
  27.     end)
  28. end
  29.  
  30. local function SetTextureFromDb(frame, texture, type, relative)
  31.     if (frame and texture) then
  32.         if (type == CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Normal) then
  33.             frame:SetInside(relative, texture.normal.offset.x, texture.normal.offset.y);
  34.             frame:SetTexture(texture.normal.texture)
  35.             frame:SetVertexColor(COLORS:Unpack(texture.color.default))
  36.         elseif (type == CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Pushed) then
  37.             frame:SetInside(relative, texture.pushed.offset.x, texture.pushed.offset.y);
  38.             frame:SetTexture(texture.pushed.texture)
  39.             frame:SetVertexColor(COLORS:Unpack(texture.color.accent))
  40.         elseif (type == CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Highlight) then
  41.             frame:SetInside(relative, texture.highlight.offset.x, texture.highlight.offset.y);
  42.             frame:SetTexture(texture.highlight.texture)
  43.             frame:SetVertexColor(COLORS:Unpack(texture.color.accent))
  44.         elseif (type == CORE.VALUES.Button.States.Disabled) then
  45.             frame:SetInside(relative, texture.disabled.offset.x, texture.disabled.offset.y);
  46.             frame:SetTexture(texture.disabled.texture)
  47.             frame:SetVertexColor(COLORS:Unpack(texture.color.disabled))
  48.         end
  49.     end
  50. end

This works for all buttons except the MainMenuMicroButton, See screenshot:

What is so special about the MainMenuMicroButton that it wont override the textures?

Have you tried simply doing a manual override of these textures? Uses no extra resources and is much more reliable.

Hi,

thx for the reply. I do not know what a "manual override" of textures is :(

Do you mean replacing the textures on the hard drive?

Yes, "replacing" the textures. WoW's client has a process that looks for any texture files in the install folder before loading the ones in the data, allowing you to load your own textures. Don't worry, this is legitimate, you are not editing any data files. This only works for the UI, such as icons and other 2D elements. It used to work for sounds, which was changed back in Legion BfA patch 8.2, and you can't replace anything in the 3D world.

For example, I am including two files I personally use which turns the edges of speech bubbles transparent while making the background fully opaque. You place these files in the following file path:
World of Warcraft\Interface\Tooltips
If your game was running, /reload to see the change. You may have to fully exit the game, but the recent change for recognizing new and changed addons on a reload may allow the game to load these new files as well.

To figure out which files you want to customize and where to place them, you can follow this wiki article, as well as this one, on how to extract all UI art assets from the game as well as browsing this github repository to see each asset as a .png file. You can convert between .blp (the Blizzard proprietary image format) and .png using BLPNG Converter hosted right on this site. Just edit the file as a .png then convert your edit to .blp. The converter saves the file output in the same folder you had the first file.

Thank you very much!

For me this is way too unflexible. I want the user to be able to exchange textures from the configuratio menu.

I guess what im going to do is to try to rebuild the micro menu with my own implementation.
I guess this will be challenging since all those strange restrictions blizzard puts up on buttons
when you are in fight.

It is best to look at Blizzard's code to see what is going on. In this case you have this running OnUpdate:
Lua Code:
  1. function MainMenuMicroButtonMixin:OnUpdate(elapsed)
  2.     if ( self.updateInterval > 0 ) then
  3.         self.updateInterval = self.updateInterval - elapsed;
  4.     else
  5.         self.updateInterval = PERFORMANCEBAR_UPDATE_INTERVAL;
  6.         local status = GetFileStreamingStatus();
  7.         if ( status == 0 ) then
  8.             status = (GetBackgroundLoadingStatus()~=0) and 1 or 0;
  9.         end
  10.         if ( status == 0 ) then
  11.             MainMenuBarDownload:Hide();
  12.             self:SetNormalAtlas("hud-microbutton-MainMenu-Up", true);
  13.             self:SetPushedAtlas("hud-microbutton-MainMenu-Down", true);
  14.             self:SetDisabledAtlas("hud-microbutton-MainMenu-Disabled", true);
  15.         else
  16.             self:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-MicroButtonStreamDL-Up");
  17.             self:SetPushedTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-MicroButtonStreamDL-Down");
  18.             self:SetDisabledTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-MicroButtonStreamDL-Up");
  19.             if ( status == 1 ) then
  20.                 MainMenuBarDownload:SetTexture("Interface\\BUTTONS\\UI-MicroStream-Green");
  21.             elseif ( status == 2 ) then
  22.                 MainMenuBarDownload:SetTexture("Interface\\BUTTONS\\UI-MicroStream-Yellow");
  23.             elseif ( status == 3 ) then
  24.                 MainMenuBarDownload:SetTexture("Interface\\BUTTONS\\UI-MicroStream-Red");
  25.             end
  26.             MainMenuBarDownload:Show();
  27.         end
  28.         local bandwidthIn, bandwidthOut, latencyHome, latencyWorld = GetNetStats();
  29.         local latency = latencyHome > latencyWorld and latencyHome or latencyWorld;
  30.         if ( latency > PERFORMANCEBAR_MEDIUM_LATENCY ) then
  31.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBar:SetVertexColor(1, 0, 0);
  32.         elseif ( latency > PERFORMANCEBAR_LOW_LATENCY ) then
  33.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBar:SetVertexColor(1, 1, 0);
  34.         else
  35.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBar:SetVertexColor(0, 1, 0);
  36.         end
  37.         if ( self.hover and not KeybindFrames_InQuickKeybindMode() ) then
  38.             self.tooltipText = MicroButtonTooltipText(MAINMENU_BUTTON, "TOGGLEGAMEMENU");
  39.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBarFrame_OnEnter(self);
  40.         end
  41.     end
  42. end
The easy fix is to replace the OnUpdate script with something similar that does not undo your changes:
Lua Code:
  1. MainMenuMicroButton:SetScript('OnUpdate', function(self, elapsed)
  2.     if ( self.updateInterval > 0 ) then
  3.         self.updateInterval = self.updateInterval - elapsed;
  4.     else
  5.         self.updateInterval = PERFORMANCEBAR_UPDATE_INTERVAL;
  6.         local status = GetFileStreamingStatus();
  7.         if ( status == 0 ) then
  8.             status = (GetBackgroundLoadingStatus()~=0) and 1 or 0;
  9.         end
  10.         if ( status == 0 ) then
  11.             MainMenuBarDownload:Hide();
  12. --          self:SetNormalAtlas("hud-microbutton-MainMenu-Up", true);
  13. --          self:SetPushedAtlas("hud-microbutton-MainMenu-Down", true);
  14. --          self:SetDisabledAtlas("hud-microbutton-MainMenu-Disabled", true);
  15.         else
  16. --          self:SetNormalTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-MicroButtonStreamDL-Up");
  17. --          self:SetPushedTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-MicroButtonStreamDL-Down");
  18. --          self:SetDisabledTexture("Interface\\Buttons\\UI-MicroButtonStreamDL-Up");
  19.             if ( status == 1 ) then
  20.                 MainMenuBarDownload:SetTexture("Interface\\BUTTONS\\UI-MicroStream-Green");
  21.             elseif ( status == 2 ) then
  22.                 MainMenuBarDownload:SetTexture("Interface\\BUTTONS\\UI-MicroStream-Yellow");
  23.             elseif ( status == 3 ) then
  24.                 MainMenuBarDownload:SetTexture("Interface\\BUTTONS\\UI-MicroStream-Red");
  25.             end
  26.             MainMenuBarDownload:Show();
  27.         end
  28.         local bandwidthIn, bandwidthOut, latencyHome, latencyWorld = GetNetStats();
  29.         local latency = latencyHome > latencyWorld and latencyHome or latencyWorld;
  30.         if ( latency > PERFORMANCEBAR_MEDIUM_LATENCY ) then
  31.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBar:SetVertexColor(1, 0, 0);
  32.         elseif ( latency > PERFORMANCEBAR_LOW_LATENCY ) then
  33.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBar:SetVertexColor(1, 1, 0);
  34.         else
  35.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBar:SetVertexColor(0, 1, 0);
  36.         end
  37.         if ( self.hover and not KeybindFrames_InQuickKeybindMode() ) then
  38.             self.tooltipText = MicroButtonTooltipText(MAINMENU_BUTTON, "TOGGLEGAMEMENU");
  39.             MainMenuBarPerformanceBarFrame_OnEnter(self);
  40.         end
  41.     end
  42. end)

Works perfectly! That is the best option so far! Thanks!
