ExtraBar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.0
by: Cowmonster [More]
This is an extremely lightweight addon that takes the remaining 12 buttons from actionbar page 2 and puts them above the bottom right action bar. This allows you to make use of those 12 buttons you ordinarily could not see without changing the actionbar page.

For classes that have a pet, I have updated the addon to move your pet bar up to accommodate ExtraBar.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.1.0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated for 5.3.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.9
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated so it hides when the MainMenuBar is hidden.
Because of the Secure API this may not work well
in-combat, but should toggle the bar once out of combat.
This is so the bar will not be seen while in a vehicle
or doing quests that use a custom interface and hide
the rest of the action bars.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.8
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated for 5.0.4.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.7
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated for 4.3.

* Made some adjustments to the key binding. This will mean those that
had buttons bound previously will need to go in and re-bind them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.6
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated for 4.2.

* The issue where the pet bar was not moving as expected on
login should be resolved now.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.5
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated for 4.1.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.4a
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Noticed a problem where pet bar was only moved after a UI reload and
resolved it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.4
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Updated LUA to move pet bar up out of the way for classes with pets.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.3
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Added keybinding support.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.2
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Fixed a bug that caused a ButtonFacade error message.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Added very basic support for ButtonFacade to skin the bar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.0.0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Initial release.

Feature Request

Hi,
I like this allot. Could you add Button Facade support?
I use StellerBars which supports it but the extra bar doesn't so it looks kinda funny at this point with the bars skinned differently.

Thanks,
Twidget

I'll look into BF and see what it will take to add support for it.

Addon Name conflict

There is a conflict with another addon that when unziped both have the same name and over right each other on install. The ExtraBars when upziped its main file name is 'ExtraBar', this addon gives you 4 extra customizable independent bars.

I would like to use both as yours uses one of the normal hidden bars

Thanks

Hi,
When I logged in with the new version I got the following error:

Date: 2009-08-21 06:44:38
ID: 1
Error occured in: Global
Count: 1
Message: ...ade\Libs\LibButtonFacade-1.0\LibButtonFacade-1.0.lua line 710:
table index is nil
Debug:
[C]: ?
...ade\Libs\LibButtonFacade-1.0\LibButtonFacade-1.0.lua:710: AddButton()
ExtraBar\ExtraBar.lua:44: in main chunk
AddOns:
ButtonFacade, v3.2.275
ExtraBar, v1.0.1

However, it does work. I was able to change the look of the bar with Button Facade. I changed the bar, logged out and back in to see if I would get the error again and to confirm that bar stayed changed. It did stay changed but I did got the same error as before.

Thanks for making the change I asked for, looks AWESOME! Now, if you can just get this annoying error to go away at login it will be perfect.

Thanks,
Twidget

PS As far as the name goes I think the author of that other mod should change the lua name to match his mod. If his mod is called "Extrabars" with an "s" then his lua should have the same name. I don't think you should change yours. Consistency...

I guess it is too much to ask that the author of that addon name the folder the same as the addon. The only solution is to rename the folder of one of the addons and change the name of the .toc file to match (IE. rename that addon's folder to ExtraBars and rename the .toc file to ExtraBars.toc). Then both addons should work without issue provided that addon doesn't have any texture files in a sub directory referenced in the lua code.

Fixed it. The new version is pending upload (1.0.2) which fixes the error. Thanks for the bug reports and ideas.

Yeah, I keep the resolution super low because I'm playing from a laptop and I triple box on it.

I'm the Author of Extra Bars. (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...Bars.html#info)

The original name of my addon was actually Extra Bar, which is why the folder is named as such (in the first release only 1 bar was introduced).
Unfortunately there are a few headaches with renaming addon folders and I didn't anticipate another addon being released with that name which is why I didn't make the minor change to the folder (although looking at things, Extra Bar is a fairly obvious name to use).

Although I would prefer to avoid this situation with two mods with pretty much the same name, I'll look to adding an 's' into the folder name of my addon so that both addons can coexist. This will be dependent on checking off possible issues to users from a name change, it may not be something I can get done for my next release.

Regards
Alternator

Brilliant addon, small and simple. Thank you very much.
The only thing I'm missing personally is the keybinding support on the new bar. Is there any way this could work?

As soon as I get a little spare time I'll add it.

Keybinding

Okay I updated the addon and added the Bindings.xml file so the buttons can be bound to keys, but the header is not showing up and the Descriptions of the bindings is showing the name rather than the description. This is my first experience with a Bindings.xml file, so if anyone knows where I went wrong or thinks they can tweak it I welcome the input.

For the keybinding by default there is no predefined bindings so it won't overwrite any existing bindings you may be using. In the keybinding menu there are references to each button so you can set the bindings.

The addon wasn't designed to be used with a custom UI. I wrote it to fit the default UI and be extremely lightweight. Perhaps I'll look into the configuration of nMainBar and depending on how it is setup I could make the bar auto position if nMainBar is loaded, but that wouldn't be in the main release since that starts adding superfluous features that most wouldn't need and the idea behind the addon is to keep it small.
