Seems to break on Pet Battles.

I can't use my keyboard in combat, and after combat my hidden bars make themselves visible.

This is driving me crazy.

I'm a feral druid and I've been using Macaroon and Ion since... forever XD, anyways, with the last update, the macros I've always used with these addons no longer work properly and have a very strange behavior.

For example, I have a macro as simple as:
#showtooltip
/cast [stealth] Ravage; Shred


But now for some reason that very same macro is showing and using the ability Prowl... O_o, Prowl isn't even in the macro... I edited the macro through /ion edit, and it kept showing Prowl. I deleted the macro info and rewrote it again and then it's showing a blanket space, it doesn't read the macro text at all.

I decided to create the same macro in the WoW's default macro pane and place it in my ion action bar and the resault was that it only shows Ravage, no matter if i'm stealth or not, it's always Ravage. I deactivated the addon for some tests and the macros work perfectly on the standard bars.

The weird part is that I have similar macros with other characters (Warlock and Monk) and they work as intended.

I don't know how to fix it. Any help? Thanks

Edit: After some more tests I think this is what's happening: first of all, it seems Ion struggles with the stealth conditional, and second, and more importantly, if the macros have the same name (I've always named all my macros with a blanket space to avoid showing its name in the macro itself), Ion mixes them and ends showing whatever macro it pleases XD.

Consolidated fixes

I have consolidated fixes into a fork of Maul's code on github here

https://github.com/Witchblade/Ion

It includes everything that Maul has fixed and published either on github or the 5.1 patch.

I did fix the bug where the spell tooltip was showing the wrong spell (such as a Warlock's Malefic Grasp showing Shadowbolt).

This is mostly so I can keep all the fixes I need in one place, but I figure it might be helpful for those of you that are long time users of Trinity/Macaroon/Ion. Hopefully, this will make it still useable for you.

Thanks for doing this. If its OK with you I'll package my few fixes as pull requests against your repo to have a single source of the "best" Ion until Maul can get back to development.

Maybe time to ask maul if he wants someone else to pick up development.

None of my macros work anymore =(. If I change the name of the macro the text does not show up. If I try to change the tool tip of the key-bind it doesn't work. Most of the time I have to drag the spell from the spell-book directly as typing it in commonly does nothing. Dragging a macro from wow's default UI into my key-binds had varying results: nothing showed up, put another macro there instead, etc.
.
I downloaded the version given below before adding this comment.

Would love to see a fix to get separate keybinds for different charaters, but still using the same barlayout working again. I made a bugreport about it. So if anyone knows a workaround or a fix for it you will have one happy user here. Bug report can be found in mauls portal.

I have posted a fix for showing spell charges. Could use some testing. It works for the Monk's Roll spell.

I have asked a few times. While I get offers to help with other tasks, which I am always grateful for, so far no one over the years who wants to tackle the Lua side of things and knows the Lua/XML/WoW API has stepped up.

If anyone is interested, please hit me up via PM and I can add those who are willing to make fixes, or even develop features, onto the project

The way I fixed this is whatever keys you want to use for Pet Battles, make sure to keybind them (in the WoW Keybind panel) to Action Button 1 though 6.

It is ok if you have those same keys already bound to Ion buttons, you can keybind the same keys in both places (note: the WoW keybind panel will tell you that your Ion keybinds have been removed, but it lies, the keys won't be removed from the Ion button)

Example: If you have the keys F1, F2, F3, F4, F5 and F6 bound to Ion buttons but you also want to use those same keys to control your Pet Battles, then click the Esc key, select "Key Bindings" and enter those F keys for Action Button 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. each time you will get a warning that says something like "CLICK IonActionButtonXX:LeftButton Function is Now Unbound!". Ignore the warning, your Ion keys have NOT been unbound (at least mine didn't).

As for your hidden bars being visible, not sure how fix that.

Hope that helps,
Xid

So just coming back now, I can't seem to get ion to deal with vehicle bars properly. Pet battle stuff comes up right, but stuff like in SOTA won't popup the bars to control the stuff in there. Its pretty frustrating, any workarounds?

I had a similar problem, default Blizzard vehicle bar pops up as it should when I'm *NOT* in combat, but it fails to work right if I enter a vehicle in combat (Amber-Shaper Un'sok, for example). Here's what I had to do, and it seems to work. I made a whole new bar with 6 buttons, all of which I left blank in the "home state." Make sure the Vehicle and Possess states are checked. Open your Ion keybind editor, lock buttons 1-6 on your regular action bar, and then set buttons 1-6 on this bar, as well. In the first button, type the following macro for both the Vehicle and Possess states (remember to leave the home state blank):

/click [overridebar] [vehicleui] [possessbar, @vehicle, exists] OverrideActionBarButton1
/stopmacro [overridebar] [vehicleui] [possessbar, @vehicle, exists]
/click ExtraActionButton1

Copy and paste the same macro to each of the six buttons, changing the underlined numbers to correspond with the button number. Since the last sentence might be met with some confusion, I'll type out the macro for button 6 below, as an example.

/click [overridebar] [vehicleui] [possessbar, @vehicle, exists] OverrideActionBarButton6
/stopmacro [overridebar] [vehicleui] [possessbar, @vehicle, exists]
/click ExtraActionButton6

This setup works when I enter a vehicle in combat. My regular bars stay exactly where they are, the Blizzard vehicle bar fails to pop up, and this bar kinda takes over when I press buttons 1-6. It's not pretty, but it's functional. Leaving the buttons blank in the home state makes this bar invisible when you're not in a vehicle.

Hope this helps!

Edit - Forgot to give credit where due: this thread in the official Warcraft forums is where I got the above macro.
