I thought I updated it to fix the rezoning issue, will upload that shortly here sorry!

As far as changing a bars growth direction that is a pretty tricky thing to achieve in game. I will add something in the lua to change each bars direction sometime in the next week hopefully.

Tried changing Rightbar1 and Rightbar2 to Horizontal, but they're still vertical. No biggie though, the zone bug is fixed, so i'm happy.

I have the same problem as Taet bar1 isn't movable, no idea why though. Also I'd like to request the option to have 2 rows and 6 buttons on each row like rActionBarStyler has. I tried implementing it myself by using rActionBarStyler's code and it worked HOWEVER it messed up the pixel perfection for some reason and I'm not experienced enough with LUA to find the reason why.

Edit: Also I suggest trying out the addon with a rogue, the stealth button is a bit buggy. It only allows me to move it horizontally and the scale is different from the rest of the buttons (might be intended?).

Regards,

Trav

i don't know if it's been reported earlier, but the bars are not clickable if set to mouseover (at least bar3 isn't, guess it spreads to the others as well)


edit:
fixed it myself, using
Code:
bar1:SetFrameStrata("Background")
bar2:SetFrameStrata("Background")
bar3:SetFrameStrata("Background")
bar4:SetFrameStrata("Background")
bar5:SetFrameStrata("Background")
shapebar:SetFrameStrata("Background")
petbar:SetFrameStrata("Background")
right before movefunc

Yeah that was the issue, I fixed it but I just buried myself in making it configurable to change growth directions (vertical, horizontal) so the update will come either by the end of morning or sometime tomorrow night. Depending on if I want sleep.

Updated, now included bar direction configuration.

Right now I'd like to ask those who keep up with this, is the configuration option for each bar to have 2 rows something that most people would like to see? Its a decent amount of work to change add that, and I want to make sure its wanted before I bulk up the addon and commit time. Thanks!

When zoning the stealth stance button relocates underneath some of the bars and a reloadui fixes it. I haven't tested a vehicle yet so I hope everything works out fine there.

However, why is the stealth button over the main bar and auto adjusts with the enabled/disabled 2nd bar while the warrior and DK stance buttons are under the main bar. It feels so inconsistent.

Shouldn't be the case but i'll look at it right now

This is hands down the most lightweight actionbar addon i've ever tried. Why? CPU usage is nonexistant (stays at 0.000 CPU even when hovering over bars), and it uses 6kb. Great work on this.

I would definitely switch from barkeep to this if I could at least setup the mainbar as two rows.

Right now I am using Domino's for my buttons but I would switch to this in an instant if the ability to have 2 rows to a bar so that i could fit it nicely into my UI

Well as I already said, I would really like to have 2 rows/6 buttons as an option.
First reason is, I love your addons am using bChat and bMinimap just <3 them.
Second bActionbars gives me pixel perfect textures and for some reason rActionBarStyler doesn't even when using the same scale.
Third for me having two rows is only something I want for the main bar really, as I don't know how you planned it out (maybe adding this function to every bar?). It might save time to make the question a bit more specific AKA how many bars/which bars should have this option?
Also not to be rude or anything, but don't try to reinvent the wheel! As I said in an earlier comment rActionBarStyler's code works with bActionbars it just messes up the pixel perfection. So you could check out that code and improve it maybe.

Kind regards,

-Trav

I will add the option to have bars 1-3 as 2 rows in the next update. If needed i'll add the other ones later.

Theres a lot of issues with the pet bar holder and the shapeshift bar holder from the blizzard code that I can't get rid of completely right now but i'm really hoping to have that all sorted by tomorrow. Thanks for the compliments!
