For bottom->top search for:
Code:
bar[i]:SetPoint("TOP", 0, -(barheight + spacing) * (i-1))
Change "TOP" to "BOTTOM" and invert the y-axis value. (the second one)

The numFormat function I'm using is
lua Code:
  1. --number format func
  2.   local numFormat = function(v)
  3.     if v > 1E10 then
  4.       return (floor(v/1E9)).."b"
  5.     elseif v > 1E9 then
  6.       return (floor((v/1E9)*10)/10).."b"
  7.     elseif v > 1E7 then
  8.       return (floor(v/1E6)).."m"
  9.     elseif v > 1E6 then
  10.       return (floor((v/1E6)*10)/10).."m"
  11.     elseif v > 1E4 then
  12.       return (floor(v/1E3)).."k"
  13.     elseif v > 1E3 then
  14.       return (floor((v/1E3)*10)/10).."k"
  15.     else
  16.       return floor(v)
  17.     end
  18.   end

But that requires editing the SetFormatedText calls because I return strings and no number values. (Thus you have to use %s)

That's about as far as I got in terms of changing growth, but I wasn't as clear as I should have been when I explained how I wanted it to grow in my previous post.

I'm looking for it to grow from bottom to top but still show the highest value bar on top. So if there's one bar it's on the bottom, if there are two combatants the second bar spawns under the first bar and moves the first bar up. I feel like I'm still doing a terrible job of explaining this.

-Showing 5 bars (with only two combatants) how it is now:

[Top of frame]
Bar 1 ###
Bar 2 ###
-
-
-
[Bottom of Frame]


-Showing 5 bars (with only two combatants) how I'd like it:

[Top of frame]
-
-
-
Bar 1 ###
Bar 2 ###
[Bottom of Frame]

As more people are in the same combat Bar #1 rises from the bottom spot to the top.

I hope that made sense =/

Boy you really want to keep things complicated? You can do that but only if you have the number of current bars to display and the number of maximum bars visibile. So you want sth like this:
lua Code:
  1. local adjust = 0
  2. if (#barguids<maxbars)
  3.   adjust = maxbars-#barguids
  4. end
  5. bar[i]:SetPoint("TOP", 0, -(barheight + spacing) * (i-1+adjust))
By doing that you substract the currently displayable number of bars (#baguids) from the maximum number auf bars to display (maxbars). This will create a gap if there are bars that are currently blank.

IMPORTANT: Since you have to calculate the bar position dynamically (because they can change at any time) you have to move the SetPoint out of the condition. Bars will only be created once but your setpoint needs to be called on each update.

And I think you know that this will probably kill mousewheel scrolling?

Yeah that really did end up complicating the hell out of it. I messed around with the code you posted, think I got it right once (because scrolling broke) but it still didn't grow properly.

But in all seriousness, breaking mousewheel scrolling isn't worth the aesthetics. So I just need to reposition things a bit better and deal with it I think!

Thanks for your help, sir, appreciate it!

On one of my characters, I cannot move the frame. Holding shift and dragging works fine on my other characters but not on my Shaman. Anybody have this problem?

It does work on the background only. Don't try it on a displayed bar.

The only problem I have with this now is that when playing a priest or seeing a priest on the meter is the contrast of white. I do not like THINOUTLINE as it just makes text look bulky and creating a minimal looking UI, well, THINOUTLINE doesnt fit.

So, could anyone offer some help with what Id like to do.

1- No bar color (no bars at all? just the players name)
2- Players name, DPS and Dmg in class color.

Ive given up on bars accending in order of highest to lowest and rearranged my UI a bit.

Im realizing that feature #1 would strip code, and Im fine with that. Less code = smaller size, smaller size = minimal

Any help with this would and is appreciated.

Edit: Thinking about it, Im really not concerned too much about #2, but other might. However, is it possible to actually have EVERY bar in the color white? Or a color of choice and the players name in black? Or a color of choice? I so could live that that if thats possible.

1 - in the lua set the classcolorbar to false and change the alpha of the bar color to 0
2 - in the lua set classcolorname to true.

You can do both of these in the new dropdown menus as well.

Unless you're using a pixel font (in which case you can use MONOCHROMEOUTLINE), all text outlines look pretty bad; fuzzy, inconsistent, just ugly in general.

ex of the changes you talked about (if I understood you properly):

I just tried making mine look like that but I still only get a grey bar with classcolored text. Not just class colored text.
When I attempt to change the bar backdrop using the drop down menu, I get an error.
Not sure what's up.

Allez, are you working on a Mists version for this? I'm in beta and the only thing that broke for this addon was the raid/party functions and events. see here

I have an updated file if you'd like me to send it to you, or upload it as a beta addon.
