A collection of useful methods to help with pixel perfection, parsing item links, and converting decimal numbers into hexidecimal.

Legion breaking changes

The API DecodeItemString has been replaced/renamed to DecodeItemLink, and supports quest, spell, item, talent, and enchant links. The return values of this API have been altered from prior versions.

List of methods

  • PixelPerfect
  • VisualData
  • NumberToHex
  • DecodeItemLink
  • Round
  • TitleCase

How to use

LibUtilities-1.0 is an embedded library, and thus gives its functions to any AddOn for direct control.




Core AddOn

local MyAddOn = LibStub("AceAddon-3.0"):NewAddon("MyAddOn", "LibUtilities-1.0")
-- OR
local MyAddOn, privateTable = ...

function MyAddOn:Enable()
    -- probably not the best place for this call, but this is an example
    -- notice it is not utilities:VisualData()
    local uiScale, resolutionX, resolutionY = MyAddOn:VisualData()

Getting the corrected scale for the UI

  1. SetCVar("uiScale", tostring(self:PixelPerfect(1)))
  2. SetCVar("useUiScale", "1") Note, yes, 1, or it won't work
  3. If the third return of VisualData() resolutionY is >=1200 you should also scale UIParent, as Warcraft's UI scale will not go lower than .64.
