Bongos2  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.10.1
by: Tuller [More]
I have written a new action bar addon, called Dominos, and am no longer supporting this one. Please feel free to try it out, along with Trinity Bars, and Bartender 3


Bongos is an action bar replacement designed to be both low memory, and easy to setup. It is not as feature rich as other bar mods, but should include the features most commonly used.

Version History
A Brief Guide

Included Addons
  • Bongos2: The core addon.
  • Bongos2 ActionBar: Breaks up the main action bar into movable parts
  • Bongos2 Stats: A display for latency, framerate, and memory usage
  • Bongos2 RollBar: Makes the frame for rolling on items movable
  • Bongos2 CastBar: A movable casting bar, with the ability to show cast time
  • Bongos2 XP: A movable experience bar
  • Bongos2 MapBar: A movable mapbar
  • Bongos2 Options: A dynamically loaded options menu for Bongos

Features
  • Every Bongos bar can be moved, hidden, and have its scale and opacity altered
  • Sticky bars - Each bar can be anchored to any other bar
  • 120 action buttons, which can be setup in any number of bars
  • Both macro and key binding text on action buttons can be hidden
  • Customizable stance transitions for each bar

General Settings
  • To bring up the options menu: type /bongos menu
  • To unlock bars: uncheck the lock bars option in the main options menu
  • To hide or show a bar: unlock bars, then middle click or shift right click it
  • To move a bar: unlock bars, and then click and drag it with the left mouse button
  • To bring up a bar's configuration menu, right click it

Key Bindings
  • Bindings for the Bongos action bar should only be done via the bindings menu in Bongos
  • To bind keys, open the main options panel, and select the bindings option. Hover over a button, then press a key to bind it to that button

Action Bar Settings
  • Accessing general action bar options: open up the main options window (/bongos menu) and select the action bars panel
  • Adjusting the layout of a given bar: unlock bars and right click the bar you want to adjust to bring up its configuration menu
  • Moving buttons: Hold down the key for moving buttons (shift by default), and drag a button. Alternatively, unlock button positions by shift right clicking the mini map button, or unchecking the option in the main options menu
  • Making a bar bigger: You can increase the maximum size of a given bar by reducing the number of action bars. To do so, adjust the action bars slider on the action bar panel of the main options menu. This option will reset the settings of your action bars

Stances and Paging
  • Stances and paging are configured via a bar's right click menu. With bars unlocked, right click the bar you want to change,

Slash Commands
  • All commands start with either /bongos, /bob, or /bgs
  • <barList> can have a possible value of an actionbar number, menu, bags, pet. class, or all
  • You can also specify a group or range of bars, the command /bo scale 1-3 class 1.2 will scale action bars 1 2 3, and the class bar to 120% of their normal size.
  • /bongos - Shows the options menu, if present
  • /bongos lock - Toggles locking bars positions
  • /bongos show <barList> - Shows <barList>
  • /bongos hide <barList> - Hides <barList>
  • /bongos toggle <barList> - Toggles <barList>
  • /bongos scale <barList> <scale> - Sets the scale of <barList> to <scale>
  • /bongos setalpha <barList> <opacity> - Sets the opacity of <barList> to <opacity>
  • /bongos set <profile> - Sets the current character to use <profile>
  • /bongos copy <profile> - Copies all settings from <profile>
  • /bongos delete <profile> - Deletes <profile>
  • /bongos reset - Loads default settings
  • /bongos version - Displays what version of bongos you're running
  • /keybound - Toggles keybinding mode

Is Bongos responsible for this?Right now,im also using Tinytip.
This is a Blizzard option look in your interface options and then tick the "Advanced Tooltips" or something to that effect.

Hope this helps.

Any chance you can make those changes please? Thats a huge restriction to have to put up with.
It requires a significant rewrite, so not any time soon. It should still be possible to drag items from your spellbook/inventory onto the bars, just not things off of your bar.

I'm having some troubles with bonogs on my warrior, im trying to set bars 4&6 to page for each stance, it works fine there but then other bars mess up such as bar 1 clears on each stance and then is mirrored by bar 8, i cannot seem to get this resolved....im using bongos 1.8.1....thanks for any help you can give
Can you give me a screenshot of your issue?

Hi Tuller

I am using Bongos2_Stats to show fps/mem/latency, and I have noticed something very weird - the on-screen display of the memory used, and the 'Total' memory used in the tooltip (when you hover over the on-screen display) do not match up. There is typically a discrepancy of about 8-10MB, with the amount shown in the tooltip being less than that shown on the on-screen display.

I don't know if this is a bug, or if perhaps I just don't understand what the on-screen display memory figure means compared to the 'Total' figure in the tooltip. Any light shed on the matter would be appreciated

PS I am using Bongos 1.8.1.

Its technically possible, but not implemented in Bongos.

With the recent version, I am unable to move buttons on my actionbars while in combat. I have my actionbars 'lock button position' and the 'button pickup key' set to SHIFT. When I enter combat, I cannot shift-drag to move buttons, which I could do in earlier versions.

I don't know if this is related, but I was told it was Bongos' fault. Also when in combat, I cannot open my spellbook.
Spellbook issue:
I'll check this, but its most likely being caused by another addon.

Moving buttons in combat:
Picking up buttons was made a secure function in the patch, so its no longer possible for Bongos to do so in combat without me doing some significant changes.

Problem: The Aspect Spells are not in the Class Bar, the Class Bar is just one "button" and seems to be attached to the Pet Bar.
That functionality is from another addon. Aspects have never actually been part of the class bar by default.

Pls make keyring hideable.
I'm planning on it.

I have not been able to get any map coordinate add-ons to function with bongo's installed.
Disable Bongos_MinimapBar.

[2007/09/26 23:40:03-218-x1]: Bongos2_ActionBar\core\config.lua:118: attempt to call global 'SetActionSelfCastKey' (a nil value)
You need to install a new version of Bongos. You're using 1.7.5, most likely.

Apologies if this has been covered. I went back a month or two in the comments but didn't see anything.

Keyring

I like bongos but dislike the change to the keyring. I prefer the smaller button from the default UI and if it is going to be as big as it is now, I would rather hide it than see it.

This would be something new in the patch then that I am not seeing in the patch notices, I could move spells from one button to the next in combat before.
