Ion Action Bars  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: Lithium 3.1.2a
by: Maul, Jrosk, SLOKnightfall, Soyier

Introducing Ion - Version 3 "Lithium"

Ion is a macro-based action bar addon. It can stand on its own or supplement any other action bar addon or even the default Blizzard UI.




Modules:
Ion comes with 4 modules that can be used for a full featured action bar experience. These modules are optional, but it is highly recommended that they be used for the best experience.

Features:
  • Ion features an unlimited number of macros. You can create as many bars/buttons as you want/need per character!
  • Are you a keybinder extreme? Use the button storage area for all your macros/keybindings! No buttons on screen needed!
  • Are you a clicker extraordinaire? As many buttons on the screen you want where you want, when you want!
  • Macros the size of Texas! Up to 1024 characters in length!
  • Maul's unique mouse-over key-binding system - where the mouse-over binding system was born!
  • Many other of the favorite desired bar addon features and then some!
  • And, importantly, MASQUE support!


Graphical Editor:
Ion contains a graphical bar editor that allows for a nearly endless customization of bar shape, size, orientation, etc, that has neither limitations on max number of bars nor the number of buttons per bar. Further all of the options found in the graphical bar editor can also be set using the below command structure:


Commands:
Type /ion alone to display a list of available commands, which are:
  • menu: Toggle the main menu
  • storage: Open the button storage area
  • create: Create a blank bar
  • delete: Delete the currently selected bar
  • config: Toggle configuration mode for all bars
  • add: Adds buttons to the currently selected bar (add or add #)
  • remove: Removes buttons from the currently selected bar (remove or remove #)
  • edit: Toggle edit mode for all buttons
  • bind: Toggle binding mode for all buttons
  • scale: Scale a bar to the desired size.
  • snapto: Toggle SnapTo for current bar
  • autohide: Toggle AutoHide for current bar
  • shape: Change current bar's shape
  • name: Change current bar's name
  • strata: Change current bar's frame strata
  • alpha: Change current bar's alpha (transparency)

  • state: Toggle states for the current bar (/mac state <state>). Type /mac statelist for vaild states
  • statelist: Print a list of valid states
  • load: Load a profile
  • lock: Lock buttons

Lithium 3.0 - Update to WoW 7.3
-Bug fixes
-FAQ rework
-PlaySound fix


Helium 2.1.1 - Bug fixes

Helium 2.1 - Update to WOW 7.2
- Removed legacy morph spell code
- Removed legacy trap launcher code
- Code clean up
- Reworked Rogues stealth bars to use the stance setting. This should allow them shadow dance to change bars correctly. This change will probably result in lost old style stealth layouts.
- Added a Shadow Dance bar state for Subtlety rogues when using the "Stealth" bar state. This allows for a separate Stealth and Shadow Dance bars to be used. Users can opt to remap the Stealth bar to the Shadow Dance state if they want a single bar state
- Fix for issue where dragging a item to the bar when the editor was open would overwrite the home state macro.
- Fixed issue where macro text would not clear between bar states.
- Fixed some issues with flyouts not generating correctly.
- Added flyout macro generator to the button editor window.

Hidden button keybind

Keybindings are not active whilst the respective button(s) are hidden due to the script OnHide set on line 3223 in Ion_buttons.lua. Any chance this could be reworked somewhat to allow keybinds to keep working when the UI is hidden (say, for example, you hide your UI with Alt-Z to capture a moment, yet still would like to actually be able to use your abilities)? Removing that codeblock allows keybinds to function whilst the UI is hidden, but I am not sure of side effects this may have (say after a Possession or the likes).

The AuraTimer Option doesnt seem to work with Slice n Dice right now, which was the greatest reason for me to use this Addon. Any Idea to fix this ?

An update is in the works. A quick fix is to modify Ion-Menubar\Ion-MenuBar.xml line 549 to be
Code:
self:SetPadding(16,16)

Thanks in advance.
The flyout code got changed a bit and the "+" flag on it was removed. You should be able to get the close to the same result by using /flyout type:Food:linear:right:left:6:mouse:show

The updated Flyout info can be found here and also in the in game help in the options menu.
Thanks so much! I spent hours Googling and didn't even think to look in the game menu help (usually, they're not so helpful).

it's actually a known issue on blizzard's end. If you've started rep with Conjurer Margoss (the fishing guy in new dal) it adds a blank 'hated' rep as well. It is this blank rep that is causing rep addons to freak out and throw an error (basically returns 'nil' when trying to pull the name of the rep).

Personally, I've got Ion status bars disabled because of this and use the default UI for mirror bars, weak auras for cast bars, and the rep tab on the char pane for rep tracking. But that's just me.
Aw stink. Thanks for the explanation, I hadn't seen that one when reading through comments before. I guess I'll do the same. I already use Quartz for cast bar so turning off the others isn't too bad. I'll definitely keep an eye out for news of a fix though
Think this was mentioned on the other page and someone had an easy fix. The solution they mentioned simply involved going to your Reputation tab (under Character Info in-game). You can left-click on the rep causing issues (mine was Conjurer Margoss) and setting it to "Move to Inactive". This completely brings back all functionality to the bars. Hopefully will work for you as well.
Oh thanks! I'll give that a try.

Using the addon Interface Usage to track addon cpu usage/event calls I see 134 UNIT_SPELLCAST_FAILED and 134 ACTIONBAR_UPDATE_STATE events fire on every individual keypress, when I scroll the mousewheel quickly it shoots up to 1500-5000+ events per second. I'm not exactly sure if some other addon interaction is causing this issue, but it's now at the point where in arenas Ion itself makes up for 97-99% of all addon cpu usage (and I've got quite a lot of addons), cutting my FPS at least in half, with a lot of 0.1-1sec screen freezes when spamming.

See these two screenshots screen1 screen2 for an example of what happens when I spam my mousewheel.

Any ideas of what could be causing this?
Every time you keypress something ION tries to cast the spell. The spell failure causes the game to trigger the UNIT_SPELLCAST_FAILED & ACTIONBAR_UPDATE_STATE events. The more you spam the keypress the more you trigger the events. Mousewheel scrolling can generate a lot of keypresses at once which is why you see it shoot up when used vs a physical button press. A possible reason for the freeze is you are generating a lot of system events which ION then has to process so it can figure out what if anything needs to be updated for the button.
The regular actionbar only causes 4-8 of the same events per individual key press, while Ion causes 134. Spamming the key with the default actionbars causes no lag. I've tried disabling all addons except Ion and I get the same issue, this didn't happen back in WoD with Ion either, so I'm not really sure what's going on. I'll continue debugging it for a bit myself, hopefully I can figure out some more clues on what's up.

When just using regular keybinds the issue is less pronounced and doesn't cause actual screen freezes as with the mousewheel spam, but it does cause microstutters and a hefty fps hit (30-50% less fps.) so a fix would be most welcome, I simply can't go back to using another actionbar addon after having gotten used to the luxury of Ion macros for the past few years.

Any ideas of what could be causing this?
