    Mouse highlighting addon

    Hi

    sometimes when there's lots of spells.. i loose my mouse in all the colours

    i have to try and "recover" where it is but its really hard to see the mouse pointer

    Is there an add-on that press a key and "ping"s your mouse ... much like the pulsing when you go to world map


    please if you know tell me.........!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The only addons I can think of are _Cursor and SnowfallCursor, both addons that add effects to the mousecursor, but their effects are always active, so it's not completely what you are looking for.

    Not being able to find your mouse can impact targeting even if you don't click your spells, it's a pretty valid complaint.

    I use a modified version of _Cursor that hides itself out of combat, which I could upload if you'd like.

    I'm pretty sure clickers don't have this problem as often as players who use mouse just for targeting / moving.

    yep im no clicker- i have over 30 mouse and keyboard keys bound and use them all, plus extra 12 macro keys on my new keyboard off to the left that arn't all bound yet..

    press the button on ultraxion is a real pain to find the mouse when you dont use it

    also thanks very very much for the suggestions I will try them out see what i can do

    You can also keybind that extra button

    Or make a macro for it.
    /click ExtraActionButton1

    I have mine in a general purpose 'special item/ability' macro I've been using for years. Also has hourlgass sand, goblin rocket pack, and pvp trinket in it.

    Here you go:
    Code:
    local f = CreateFrame("Button","FindMyMouseButton",WorldFrame)
    local toggleDelay = 0.1 -- how frequently should it blink, in seconds
    local binding = "SHIFT-M" -- key binding to toggle, see http://wowprogramming.com/docs/api_types#binding
    f:Hide()
    f:SetSize(50,50) -- (width, height) - texture dimensions
    f:SetFrameStrata("TOOLTIP")
    f.tex = f:CreateTexture(nil,"OVERLAY",8)
    f.tex:SetAllPoints()
    f.tex:SetAlpha(1) -- (a) - texture opacity
    f.tex:SetTexture(1,1,1) -- (r,g,b) as fractions of 255 - texture color
    f:SetScript("OnUpdate",function(self,elapsed) self.t = self.t+elapsed if self.t >= toggleDelay then self.t = 0 self.tex[self.tex:IsShown() and "Hide" or "Show"](self.tex) end self:SetPoint("CENTER",WorldFrame,"BOTTOMLEFT",GetCursorPosition()) end)
    f:EnableMouse(false)
    f:SetScript("OnClick",function(self) if self:IsShown() then self:Hide() else self.t = 0 self.tex:Show() self:SetPoint("CENTER",WorldFrame,"BOTTOMLEFT",GetCursorPosition()) self:Show() end end)
    SetOverrideBindingClick(f,true,binding,"FindMyMouseButton","LeftButton")
    How to use. Tested. Report back with issues.
