LibArrow

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

LibArrow-1.0

Credits

The code for the actual arrow is by James N. Whitehead II. See below for copyright notice
The code for distance calculation and minimap icons management is from Astrolabe by James Carrothers. See below for copyright notice
My contribute was mostly packaging them with a (hopefully) nice interface

Functionality

LibArrow allows you to implement your own arrow without hijacking tomtom's one
Calling LibArrow-1.0 newArrow method will give you a simple arrow object you can manipulate in a number of ways (see API page).
You can even add a minimap icon for the same location with a simple call to an arrow method

    Thanks for your response,

    Yeah I thought that, just wanted to capture the point on drag drop and then save it in my database.

    Otherwise the drag/drop is kind of useless :)

    @upyursh: Go

    Well, a library cant save data because it's loaded in addon namespace. You need to save it in your code. I could provide a hook for it but it looks to me an overkill. If you have a place where you save your addon configuration, there you can save the arrow location, too

    Just wondering, I'm wanting to save the location the arrow is dragged to, how would you go about this.

    I know I can pass the SetPoint values through initially, but really wanted to have the drop location savable within my own addon :)
