You can get plugins for masque, offering various looks for the buttons - just search button facade on this site.
Any word from Maul yet on a fix for Macaroon so it will function in 4.3?

4.3 introduces the new GetMacroIcons that mostly does what is needed to restore functionality. It returns a table with the icon filenames (without the Interface\Icons\ prefix). It does not include the question mark nor the player spells/gear as the regular icon picker does. Though one could copy paste from blizz' macroUI addon to get that.

This doesn't fix the issue that icons will switch when the index changes, however.

I was able to get around the hangs ups in 4.3 by not binding any spells via macaroon. I just did it by the normal WoW bars and it works fine as a spell timer. Only issue is that after I log out I now have to put macaroon in and out of edit before my bar will show up otherwise it is not there at all. I also have to put the buttons into edit, put the mouse into the macro window, then hit escape and the spell will show up.

The other thing I had to do is enable the default bars and bind my spells to them via default WoW keybinding. Otherwise, when I switched into and out of shadow form (Shadow Priest is my main) my bars would disappear.

It's working pretty solid for my purposes but I only have macaroon and macaroon profiles enabled. I disabled all other addons. If it maintains this basic functionality I "may" not have to quit wow...

show bar if player buff is applied?

Is it possible to have a bar appear only if a player has a self cast buff active?

For example, on my subtlety rogue I have an ability called 'shadow dance' which allows the use of abilities that usually require stealth.

So I'd like a little bar to appear whenever I hit shadow dance. Would this be possible? If so can anyone supply an example for me please?

Re: PTR Issues

That's the bug I reported earlier.

4.3 has removed the GetNumMacroIcons() function.
Icons are now referenced by name not index so all of the Macaroon code that involves the icons needs to be redone.

i've noticed on my not often played druid that if you are in any form but caster, vehicle transitions are very buggy

i also used the same basic layout that i use on all my other chars which has vehicle/possession on the same bar that is the default bar (ie druid shifting bar). so was wondering if simply assigning vehicle/possession to a less complicated bar might be that solution.

ok, now that's weird, because, i've seen this problem before (or at least a problem that sounds just like it) with Frostfire/Flame Orb, and using Action ID mode for the button, instead of a macro, SHOULD fix it.

just checking, but, lets make sure we are talking about the same thing when you say you tried using an action ID button. below is a description of how to set a button to an action ID button (i'll bold the parts that relate to this:

Originally posted by Maul here
Editing Buttons - After you enter button edit mode, all visible buttons will display their button type. There are three possible button types -
Macro: A button that utilizes the in-game macro sytax to cast spells/perform actions.

Action: A button that uses a unique action ID to indicate what spell/action it contains. The contents of an action ID are stored server-side. There are only 120 (1-120) unique ID's for character spells. A special case are possess buttons which can use the action ID's 121-132.

Pet: A button that uses a unique pet action ID to inidacte which pet spell/action it containts. The contents of a pet action ID are stored server-side. There are only 10 (1-10) unique ID's for pet spells.
To change a button's button type, simply left click the button. As you left click, it will cycle through all button types.

Each button type has its own specific button editor. To enable the editor for a button, right click on the button and the appropriate button editor will be displayed. As with the bar editor, there are next/prev buttons at the bottom of the editor. These are additional button options that are not tied to the button's particular type.

4.3 PTR issue

Anybody able to make this work on the 4.3 PTR reliably? My main use for Macaroon is a custom shaped circle (ellipse actually) around my toon with my spells, and it is for spell timers and ability procs. It mostly works but every now and then my frame rate goes to 1 frame every few seconds. The only fix is to quit wow and start back up. I have 8 gigs in my computer, nice video card etc so I runs very smoothly until this. I know it is caused by macaroon because it is the only add-on loaded.

The problem happened all of the time when using the spellbook binding on 4.3 PTR.
