What addon are you using to show the memory usage of all addons?
AddonUsage. To use, simply type /addonusage in-game to have a frame appear that will list all of your installed addons and the memory they use up, as a percentage out of all of the combined addons as well as an actual value.
Hello there. This is my first ever addon, albeit an extremely lightweight and basic one. I recently decided to learn basic WoW Lua coding so that I could eventually become skilled in the art and one day make a whole UI with my own ten fingers, but I decided that this would only distract me further from all the things I have going on at the moment. So I decided I would write a few small addons which would add functionality to Blizzard's default UI which I always wished it had (and have been replacing with other's addons, before I began learning Lua).
This addon is the first of those lightweight, single-function addons. I doubt anyone will really want to use this particular addon in any seriousness, but I thought that someone, somewhere might find this useful, so I decided to upload it.
Since this is such a basic addon with no visual configuration to speak of, care is needed when using it. What this addon does is allow you to bind a key or key combination to any spell, item or macro. To do so, you must use a slash command using the following structure (make sure you separate each value with a single comma and no spaces):
- Name: The full name of the spell, item or macro you wish to bind a key to. Do not use any form of quotation marks and the capitalization does not seem to matter.
- TYPE: Either SPELL, ITEM or MACRO. As far as I know, the capitalization here does matter, so be careful.
- Key: The key or key combination you wish to bind to the spell, item or macro. The prefixes for the different modifiers are SHIFT-, ALT- and CTRL-. Avoid using ESCAPE. I have not tested this yet, but you should be able to bind mouse buttons using Button1, Button2, etc.
I do hope that this addon becomes of some use to at least one person, but I won't be annoyed if it doesn't, because there are addons like ncHoverBind and BindPad which are many times better than this one, if somewhat heavier. I would also link to thank #wowuidev for all the help they gave me with learning Lua and whatnot - especially alestane. I love you (all).
I would be very thankful if you test this addon out for me. Do anything (other than what it's not built to do, of course) you can think of to try to break it and if you do, please either post a comment here with the error and how you obtained it, or send me a message with the same information. I would also like someone to test where capitalization is and isn't important and if binding mouse buttons is safe.
