Found in new UI sources: GetActionLossOfControlCooldown and SetLossOfControlCooldown. Waiting for answer on EU bnet forum to find is there any API for non-Blizzard buttons.

Edit: are you sure you need that stuff? http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/5966868521 main theme "turn it off".

Yes blizzard will probably add an option to turn it off on action bars. I think all action bars mod will add this feature too, personnally I just want to have the choice. It was mostly to keep you informed.
Ha, and #showtooltip ... maccro in Tiny Bars doesnt show the tooltip, only the maccro's name as tooltip.

Out of range colouring?

Nice simple extra button bar mod, works without wrecking the entire blizzard bar interface as some add-ons do.

I also like that it's able to track bag items that standard blizzard buttons do not, eg crafting materials.

I have one request, full button out of range colouring.

Add-ons like Tullarange colour over the standard blizzard buttons with a colour (eg transparent red) when you are out of range. Unfortunately TinyExtraBars doesn't inherit this trait.

Built in out of range colouring into TinyExtraBars (so you don't rely on another author to keep their add-on up to date) would be incredibly useful. Registering out of range by a tiny red dot on the icon isn't enough, not for my brain at least.

Edit: I set full range coloring to half red and 0.7 alpha, so out of range buttons slightly red and greyed. If it is not best color - suggest better.

Thanks another!

It took me a little while to work out it was "Full Range Artwork" I needed to tick, but once I did that it worked great. Perhaps name it something more obvious like "Button Range Coloring"?

Anyway, it works a treat. And it's faster to react to Out of Range than even the standard Blizzard UI. In fact it's noticeably quicker. Remarkable!

Technically it is artwork layer for every button. So ... where you been when I was thinking about what to type there?

Will rename in next patch.

Actually tried only now while farming Netherweb Spider Silk, works properly since 0.54.

Glow effect for macrotext buttons.

What is macrotext buttons: one day I was tired from some spells with "you have no target" while several mobs pummeling your pet or tank right in front of you. Targeting is extra time and by targeting by right-clicking mobs I succesfully agroed several groups far away in dungeons. Finally someone suggested to make macro with "/startattack" (targeting nearest hostile target in front of you).

Making it through standard macro interface have drawbacks like limited amount of slots and macro stored at server side. By using alternative macrotext I made "openers" like

/startattack
/cast Howling Blast

same for warlock's "Shadow Bolt" (Demonic Slash) and mage's "Firebolt". So instead of wasting time on targeting I simply clicking those buttons to target and start cast.

To make such macrotext button you can use "Macrotext" button attached to every button, type you macrotext (or clear to reset button to default state), drag spell from spellbook (it is enough) and type desired spell name to represent button's tooltip, cooldowns etc. Tooltip is optional if you want to override spell's tooltip.

Fairly decent alternative to Autobar with the use of FlyoutButton Custom, only afaik doesn't automatically update the buttons to include higher quality items like food and potions. Apart from that minor hassle to add items/spells manually it's much more user-friendly and easier to control what you want to appear and where you want them to appear, and it isn't so bad if what you're using is the same stuff and you're keeping it in regular stock.

May I suggest a broker addition to this? I like to keep my minimap nice and tidy and all other addons kept in broker bars.

Addon is "Minimap Button Frame" compatible. Also minimap button can be moved anywhere.
I don't think making something to autoreplace "Minor Healing Potion" to something better at level 90 is worth of time spent. There is plenty of time during leveling to do it yourself and decide when exactly you need better potion.

Strata Issue with bags and bank

Not sure what I am doing wrong but here is what I have and whats happening..

I have several TinyExtraBars at various places on my screen..
I have the Strata set to Background but say when I open my bags the bar starts behind the bag but If I pick up an item to move the BAR then comes in front of the bag and I can not get to the the bag slots behind the extra bar.. I do work around it but its a bit awkward..

The Bar is behind the bag


The bar is in front of the bag


So you can see when I pick up and item from my main bag the TinyExtraBar will come in front of my other bag on the screen..
It does this to my bank to.. the bar will cover up my bank screen..

So thats one problem I am not sure how to get past..

DK stance / presence and Visability

Ok I see the setting on the Bar Visibility configuration for Stance
but is there one for presence?

So say If i switch from Blood to Unholy Presence can I hide or show bars based on presence and not stance?
I am guessing DK's do not have stance?

when I hit the Print current stance in blood, frost, or unholly presence the stance does not change but the presence does.. So what am I missing to get the bars to show or hide based on my presence?

oh and thanks I really love this Addon.. tho I do use keybindings.. there are some things I use that I do not want keybound or I want in a bar in addition to a keybinding and I like to have things up where I can see them.. This addon fits all of those things and I really appreciate the work you put into this..

That done for placing your buttons from Spellbook (occupies almost whole screen). And it should work only in "Settings mode" (I'll check).

Edit: fixed in 0.60

Unfortunately no. Blizzard made show/hide very limited only through own special events and there is nothing for presences (and I want it for my warlock too).
