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

New to Bongos - Stance question

OK - I didn't read all 47 pages so sue me if been covered...

Pre Bongos:
Bar 1 = Normal Bar non-stealth - Keys 1 thru = by default
Bar 1 With Slealth - Keys 1 thru = by default

Bongos:
How do i assign keys 1 thru = on Bar 1 for non-stealth and then have bar 7 (or whatever) use the SAME key bindings while stealthed?

Example:
Stealth 5 = Sap
Non-Stealth 5 = Sinester Strike or whatever

Did I miss something? Is this possible?
No i don't want to use Shift-5 while out of stealth...

I can't move the petbar at all. I can move the bongos option for the pet bar but the actual pet bar will not follow it at all. It's just floating above my other bars. No I don't have any other bar addons.

Was wondering the same thing. Started to look at new bar addons. Hopefully another won't override my tooltip settings. I hate the tips on the mouse when I'm on the bar. Only like it on the main screen area. Maybe someone here has a fix.

Druid Bug

Edit: Had similar "cat" problems as others. Figured it out by reading below.

Seems that not finishing the seal form quest can mess things up.

Right-click selfcasting

Because I hate selfcasting the Blizzard way, here is how to enable right-click selfcasting in Bongos 7.1.15:
Code:
in \Bongos_ActionBar\actionBar\button.lua:

line 41:
button:SetAttribute('useparent-statebutton', true)

replace it with:
button:SetAttribute('useparent-statebutton', false)
button:SetAttribute('unit2', 'player')
Bagnon and Bongos really need some updates... absolutely >_<

Two ideas, apologies in advance if they've been mentioned:

1) Adding an option to enable button tooltips just for the petbar. I am a priest, and usually leave tooltips turned off. When i Mind Control something, it would be nice to be able to see what the buttons do for my pet.

2) Making an option to like CTRL+Hover the mouse to show tooltips when they are turned off. This could replace idea #1, but it would be great to see them both someday. Despite having tooltips off, it would be cool to be able to quickly look at them once in a while without having to go into the menus to turn them on.

Thanks!

No idea what causes it, but i have the same problem with my menu bar (though not the bag bar), i have tried deleting the lua file for it and starting over but still have the same problem. It only started happening in the last version or two.

To fix it each time i login, i have to unlock button positions then right click the menu bar and set it to vertical then back to horizontal again and it snaps down to where it should be.

Hey hey,

Just wanted to say that I've become a fan of bongos, but there is one small annoyance in regards to the "pet bar"

For me, it is "always on top" of everything on the screen. Whether I am looking at my bags, BG scoreboards or really any other UI, the pet action bar will display above all else. I was wondering if anyone knows what I could do about that.
