AlphaButtons
Version: 1.2.2
by: v6o [More]
If you're looking for an version that works with 4.x Cataclysm then I suggest you try CooldownAlpha by xtothx.


I have very little time to play WoW and even less time to code addons. As such I've dropped all development of all my addons. If you want to continue any addon or make a fork then feel free to do so. This is your permission slip.

Best regards, v6




Turns your action bars into a cooldown tracker by switching the alpha of action buttons that are on cooldown.



Configuration
If you open core.lua in a text-editor you will be able to change the alpha and disable fading on the bars of your choosing.
There should be enough information in the file on how to change it.



Supported addons
Bartender4
Dominos
Geist
rActionBarStyler
and any other that reuse the default buttons



Not supported and reasons
Macaroon
Already has the feature to fade out on cooldowns. Just ask the author for the opposite.



Credits

To skhm for coming up with the original idea with his addon CoolerMaster
1.2.2
Works with OmniCC again (Hooks on P_E_W instead of P_L which OmniCC does)

1.2.1
Added event unregister back in.

1.2
Stripped down to a bare minimum while retaining functionality.
Now keeps skills as on cooldown until GCD is over but only if GCD was fired when the cooldown is less than GCD.

1.1
Geist support.
Shortened cooldown check.

1.0
Bumped toc as no errors were reported.

0.4
Added possibility to disable fading on bars.

0.3
Fixed some mistakes. *cough cough*

0.2
rActionBarStyler should be fully supported now.

Best addon ever. Too bad it works only for my Bartender Bar 1. Ah well, back to SexyCooldown. Grr, I hate that addon!

Well all I can ask for is you zip down AlphaButtons, whatever bar addon you use and the SavedVariables for that bar addon as they never seem to break when I test them I can't really do anything about it.

i have disabled -everything- except bartender4 & alphabuttons, it still does not work.

[edit] no, i didn't modify alphabuttons in any way at all.
I seem to have forgotten enable this addon on the last few bars, 7 up to 10 but it doesn't seem to break and still works on other ones for me when I test.

Halp!
Tried latest Dominos here on WoW Interface (Dominos 1.18.6) and it still works. If you uncomment the lines (remove --) in the config file you are disabling it for those bars, not enabling so make sure you don't do that.

After Dimmed Actions was released I never really looked at releasing any new versions of this addon.

If you prefer this addon anyway I guess I could take a look at it.

It should work with Bartender4. If you've added new bars or buttons you will have to /reload the ui or log out and in for it to take control over the new buttons.

If you didn't, could you please disable addons one by one (or in groups) to find which one is causing this and I will try to fix it.

I tried Bartender4, ButtonFacade and PixelSkin and it still works. Do you use any settings where bars hide and show up?

Have you changed any settings in AlphaButtons?
