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

Re: Re: Hunter Pet Bar Always

I installed 718b, and it won't load my profiles from 718. Is this intended functionality?
No, are you getting an error when you load them?

Any chance we can see some compatibility between revisions so we don't have to re-create our layout with each patch?
Profiles should usually work, unless I deem it necessary to significantly redo a portion of the mod, like I did between the 6.12.* and 7.1.* versions. I don't plan doing it often, but 6.12 and 7.1 were both recodes.

This is only a cosmetic issue, because the pet bar seems to work otherwise (that is, I can click on the buttons and have them do what they're supposed to do). The pet bar seems to have a foreground tint of about 50-60% black to it, so the buttons are shaded to about half brightness at all times.
This should have been fixed in 7.1.8b

Also, unrelated to the above, I use TipBuddy to move and modify the tooltip and as of Bongos 7.1.8 Tip Buddy seems to be ignoring its settings to place the tooltip in a specific spot on the screen, instead defaulting to following the cursor. The only bar it seems to work on correctly is, oddly enough, the Pet Bar. I know that it's an interaction issue between TipBuddy and Bongos 7.1.8 because if I go back to Bongos 6.12.14 it works fine.
I don't believe I made any significant changes to the tool tip code, so that's a bit weird.

Well, I tried the # showtooltip thing with the regular blizzard bars and it didn't work either.

Sorry, don't mean to sound harsh. It's just with my preferred layout, it takes 30-45 minutes to setup currently.

Keep up the great work.

Hunter Pet Bar Always "Grayed Out"

Running 7.1.8b. This macro works, but the tooltips dont:

# showtooltip Renew
# show Renew
/cast [help] Renew; [target=targettarget] Renew

I can't find any reports about this not working, so I'm assuming it's a bug with bongos? Just tried it now, never tried it with previous versions.

Re: you made an oops

I get an error when I try to undock the minimap button with DetachedMinimapButtons mod, but it undocks. On reload, it redocks. Any way to get around this, perchance? I line up all my minimap buttons off the map and use SimpleMiniMap for a square map in the border.

7.1.8

OK. I just spent the past 45 minutes playing with version 7.1.8. Here's what I found:

1. There appears to be an issue with loading newly created (ie: created with v7.1.8) profiles. I create a profile on my Druid, then loaded it up on my Rogue. Everything worked, except the main button bar (4 bars of two with a bunch of stance bars attached) got all messed up.

Instead of a column of 8 buttons (made of 4 bars of 2), it became a single horizontal row of only bar 1, and all other bars that were part of the group became pages of it.

Here's the Bars as I saved them (Note the column of bars on the far left):

(Click for full sized image)

And here's the bars after I load the profile:

(Click for full sized image)

2. The settings for "Columns" seems to be odd. The slider will always point to the opposite of what the bar is actually displaying, but sliding the bar to the opposite side and then back will change the column layout.

3. After loading my profile, I am unable to place any buttons on Bar 1. I can see the bar and access it, but when I go to drop an action onto it, there is no ghost of the bar to drop anything onto.

-edit-
I reloaded the game, and now issue 3 seems to have been fixed.


Request
Would it be possible to allow for bars of varying sizes to be setup, without sacrificing buttons (ie: while keeping the entire 120 buttons available)?

For example, having Bar 1 set to 8 buttons, while Bar 2 is set to 12, and Bar 3 is set to 7.

Also, any ability to copy settings from one bar to another would be much appreciated.

Thanks for all the hard work. Bongos truly is a great mod.

FuBar_MicroMenuFu, CyCircles, or Skinner perhaps. I'll try messing with it and see if I can find out what's causing this.

I'm using 4 modules - core, actionbars, mapbar, and options.
