Extended Raid Info

4 - Purely cosmetic regarding the + and - button

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

As my first time using the addon, when I saw the + button I was a little hesitant to press it.
I thought I might be ADDING something... but I didn't know what... there was no tooltip to tell me what the + button was going to do....

Due to this, to make it more intuitive, I suggest a cosmetic change to the + and - button. Can you change them into a downward pointing arrow and and upwards pointing arrow with tooltips such as "Expand" and "Collapse" ?

    You'd use 'Expire' over 'Unlock' ?

    But I do agree with you. One word buttons are always the best.

    Initially I thought that the globals were used to avoid localization:
    EXTEND_RAID_LOCK,
    REACTIVATE_RAID_LOCK,
    UNEXTEND_RAID_LOCK

    However since as I see these are localized already I'd go 1 step further:
    "Extend"
    "Expire"
    "Reactivate"

    And something else I noted (didn't want to create another ticket for it)

    When you click the Extend Lock button, the text that it changes to is way too long for the button.

    We don't need it to be this long, "Remove Raid Lock Extension"

    We could just have "Unlock Raid" so it fits better on the button.

    Also, the button won't refresh unless we move off of that current raid highlight and re-highlight it.

    For me, "Reactivate Raid Lock" barely fits on the button, this could be changed to, "Reactivate Lock' as we know it is a Raid. That said, the word Raid shows up on Dungeons too so removing it altogether and just having "Reactivate Lock" is a better idea.

    Personally, I would go with these:

    "Extend Lock" "Unlock" "Reactivate Lock"

    Keeping it simple.
