ncHoverBind  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.3.1
by: nightcracker, Coote
Now maintained by TMcMahon51. See thread here.


ncHoverBind is a simple addon that does one thing: binding buttons on mouseover. You can mouse over actionbuttons, spells in the spellbook and macro's in the macro pane and bind them while hovering. You can bind keys, mousebuttons 4 and 5 and the scrollwheel with this addon. If you made a mistake in binding, you can just press "Discard" and your old bindings are loaded. Real simple!


Usage:
Download and install. To start use either /hb or /hoverbind. Hover over buttons, spells or macro's and press a key, scroll with the mouse or press mousebutton 4 or 5. After you've bound your spell/items/macro's press "Save bindings" and your done!
If you use HealBot, use /hvb instead.

I just bumped the TOC up to keep it clean in the addon panel. Not everybody likes having to load "Out of Date" addons.

I just tested it out, and it works fine for me. I did notice that I screwed up last time I uploaded, though. Rename the folder from ncHoverBind - Copy to just ncHoverBind. If it still doesn't work, then it's probably an issue with the bar mod you're using.

I haven't played since February, so can't exactly test this, but if you copied your bindings over manually, it should all carry over.
Look for bindings-cache.wtf in
World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SERVERNAME\CHARACTERNAME
and make a copy of it.

This is great Coote, but one thing that I noticed is that if I bind things inside the spellbook, which is one thing that I love about the addon too, for example I bind "stats/mark of the wild" buff inside the spellbook, I don't feel the need to put it in the auction bars. but this doesn't go with me to other computers, if you know what I mean.

One question about this lovely addon, does this act like the Blizzard key binding window in a way that if I keybind things then go to a different computer, my keybinding will still be there? or do I need to bring the files/WTF with me like vanilla WoW?

Great add-on, exactly what i was looking for, but i found that i can't key bind pet action bar buttons and stances properly, i'm quite new to lua but i managed to fix it (i think?):
replace this:
Code:
else
self.button.bindstring = (spellmacro=="STANCE" and "StanceButton" or "BONUSACTIONBUTTON")..self.button.id
with this:
Code:
elseif spellmacro=="PET" then
	self.button.bindstring = (spellmacro=="PET" and "BONUSACTIONBUTTON")..self.button.id
else
	self.button.bindstring = (spellmacro=="STANCE" and "SHAPESHIFTBUTTON")..self.button.id
this seems to be working so you can use this until someone comes up with a better solution

I can't thank you enough for this addon! After quitting action bar mods and moving back to default action bars, I had hard time redefining keybinds and messing with keybinds menu and this just saved my sanity

It's not uncommon that by the time you release 1, you're not holding shift down anymore, even though you do press shift+1 and the game registers it like that. Changing it to OnKeyDown makes it work flawlessly.
Will be done in the next version. Thanks for the input.

I added in some test support for the Naga, and the Steelseries WoW mouse at one point, though wasn't able to actually test it myself, and never got any responses back from the person supposed to test it. I believe all that is needed is to add up to Button14 or 15 or however are on it, assuming WoW sees those buttons as mouse keys, rather than keyboard binds. If it sees them as binds from the keyboard, rather than the mouse, it should already work by default.

I'm not entirely certain why it was never supported, and since I never thought of rebinding the middle mouse button myself, it never occurred to me to change it. Can have that changed in the next version, as well.

This is weird but it seems to "lag" with modifiers sometimes.

What I mean exactly is, if you're trying to hotkey something like say shift+1, and you do it very quickly, it registers only 1 as the bind, not shift+1. Sometimes I can replicate this, sometimes I can't.

I discovered this while just normally binding stuff by the way, so it's not like I was trying extra hard to be too fast. This happened just during normal use.

EDIT:

EDIT2:

Support for middle mouse button:
1. Comment out this line
Code:
or key == "MiddleButton"
2. Add
Code:
if key == "MiddleButton" then key = "BUTTON3" end
directly above these
Code:
if key == "Button4" then key = "BUTTON4" end
if key == "Button5" then key = "BUTTON5" end
3. Profit

BT4 has nearly the same function? Hmmm I have not found that, I'll have to investigate further.

-- Update

Wow, i'm blind! big button in the main UI. I guess I was expecting to see something in the LDB menu flyout.

TBH, I have never tested it with BT4, nor have I ever used it with BT4 in the past, since BT has nearly the same function built in. It'll be about 2 weeks before I start playing again to be able to really test it, though.

I love the idea! the way Bliz still makes us go to some scroll forever maybe you will find what you need key-bind list, if we want to do anything, is just stupid.

Thanks for your effort!
