315 - Add option for health + Percent.

The Health Bar Mode has several options for the text field. Would it be possible to add an option for approximate health + Percent.

    I had completely forgotten I had requested this :)

    Thank you so much for putting effort into this, it is much appreciated.

    I haven't been ignoring this; It's just that I've been testing a couple ways to make it easier to configure the variable text.

    Here's what I've been playing with:

    Method #1: UI: Three dropdowns, one for Left, Middle, RIght text. Mix and match indicators. Could be separated so that Friendly and Enemy both get their own set. Adds some UI bloat, but allows a flexible system of choosing what information is shown.

    Method #2: UI: Text input box, where the user can input a set of simple formatting instructions. Even more flexible, but more complicated.

    I like method #1 for many reasons, but I could see how #2 could bring a whole lot of new experimentation to the addon.

    Further down the road, I see the optional text field being used like a notification system, with more reactive and contextual information being displayed.
