Allow capitalization and/or underscores in custom sources / custom prices
This is a relatively minor suggestion, but one that would still be appreciated greatly!
- What shortfall are you trying to solve in the current functionality of the addon?
The current UI seems to force both the source name and any sources within the source to lowercase automatically, and does not allow for any non-alphabetic characters, thus causing difficulty in the readability of both the source names and sources within the custom formulas.
- What new functionality do you hope to attain with the addition of this feature?
First and foremost, I would like to see the custom source UI not force the formulas within them to lowercase, for one. Formulas and sources within operations are not forced to lowercase, and I do not feel they should do so here. I would also like to see the allowing of underscores in custom source names (unless this is am impossibility for some technical Lua reason, of course).
- How would you or others use this feature?
Improve readability for custom sources, i.e. something like auctionpostcap could be AuctionPostCap, auctionpostcap, or even AuctionPostCap.
Lurker: Maybe adding the "tsm sources" issue in as a separate post instead? And use the older post for the "custom sources" issue.
That way voters can choose if they only want to support one of the suggestions. I like them both though :)
Apologies, I just found this issue that didn't show up in my initial search that also addresses this:
I do not think mine is an exact duplicate, as I also address the automatic lowercase issue that also exists within the formulas, and also suggest underscores, but wanted to apologize in advance in case this was seen as a duplicate.
If you would like, I could add my initial post here as a comment on the linked issue and close this one. Just let me know.
Thank you for all you do! <3
