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

Btw, Bongos3 is now in development and at alpha level. You can grab it here, but be aware that you won't have the options menu unless you're running 2.4. Its a significant departure from Bongos2.
Since Bongos3 (as well as Combuctor) now uses the ACE3 libraries, will it eventually be available on the WAU?

I have to say that I tried Bongos3 on the ptr for quite some time and I am really impressed with how smooth it runs, I also thing the new config system is more user friendly than bongos2.

I still would like to see the macro bindings stay with the macro and not a specific spot in in the macro menu, because when you add another macro you have to go back and redo all the macro bindings.

Keep it up man

I have always been a fan of Bongos, one of my first addons used. Today I tried to add some eePanels borders to my UI making use of its Parent options.

I used the macro, "/script message(GetMouseFocus():GetName())", which works for everything I have tried it on. Just shows what the frame is called, I tried this on Bongos bars and get nothing.

Is there anyway I can make a eePanels border bound to the Bongos bar. I tried Bartnder3 just for testing and it works as desired but I would rather use Bongos.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Flickering ActionBar

I have been using Bongos2 for a long time now, and since the latest patch I notice something weird. I'm a hunter using the auto shot-steady shot macro which is tied to my scrollwheel.

Sometimes when scrolling the macro fast, I get messages in the Blizzard error frame, things like "this ability isn't read yet", we've all seen those messages. Now when that happens, the spells on my ActionBars also light up for some reason. So if I scroll fast, the ActionBar starts flickering, which is quite annoying.

I'm not sure when this started, probably in 2.3.3. when Blizzard changed the way castsequences work? And if I disable Bongos2 and use the normal Blizzard ActionBars, the flickering is also there. So it's probably not a Bongos2 issue, just posting it here to see if anyone else has this annoying ActionBar behaviour.

EDIT: disabling all addons makes no difference, it's still flashing every spell on the default Blizzard bar that has a global cooldown. What happens is that the error frame apparently interrupts the greyed out global cooldown timer, making it look like it flashes up when you spam a macro that causes the error frame to pop up. Hiding the error frame makes no difference either.

Then i can put my pvp macros on one bar and pve macros on another and have them swap. Then I wont have to worry about manually swapping the items that i want to bind to the same key.
Not automatically in combat.

Known bug in Blizzard code.

Think of it as having the bars shift when changing stance for warrior, or stealthing as a rogue.

Is this possible with keybinds(and possible to habve them only stay shown while the key is held down).

Thanks in advance.
Right click the bar you want to change, and mess with modifier paging.

Well I click it in options menu to "lock" but evertime I enter combat or zone it will unlock, shift clicking the mini icon does nothing at all and shift clicking it in options doesnt make any diff then regular clicking. Its become so annoying ive had to drop bongos, sry but unlockable buttons.....

Any way to figure out why my buttons don't lock? Everytime I enter a new zone or drag a new spell/item they unlock. Its very annoying having to lock them every arena game.
Also will there be range support for priests prayer of mending?
Are you holding shift?

Then when I had a button in the first row (at the bottom) it's automatically duplicated to the third one. I have the same issue with the different stances.
That's just how paging works, one bar duplicates another when switching states Make sure you're on the first page: Press shift + 1 to do so.
