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

I've always loved how people can't just state an opinion or feedback; they have to prophesy the downfall of all humanity at the same time. Not to mention, the option that's making you so angry can easily be disabled.

Flexbar was always a big bag of evil lag and bloat, if you go down that road you will lose alot of users.

On a sidenote, why would anyone want to use their mainbar mod to keep track of buffs/debuffs, when there are much better alternatives for that purpose? :/

I cannot understand this decision, nor will I accept it so
im sticking with the 2.2version until this feature is removed or a more streamlined addon comes around.
It's a simple feature and it can be turned off. It's very much in line with highlighting equipped items - and probably uses the same code too. Can't see any bloat in this. Just turn it off.

More specifically, its only paging via mousewheel or + or minus that seems to be affected. Normal paging (shift + number), is working fine.

Looks to be a tainting issue on my part.

True, the process could use some optimization.

Bongos has been updated for 2.3. This version will not work with 2.2. Delete all folders before installing.

Basically, because you didn't set any hotkeys for Bongos. When you press 1, you're pressing the original Action Button 1, which I've hidden away and disabled stance changes on. Bind your keys using Bongos and you'll be set.

Is there a way to fix this?
Its on my list for Bongos 1.10

I noticed in the ss you have here it shows an enemy cast bar, I am unable to find it in any of the bars, am I missing something or was this taken out?

Thanks
There's no enemy cast bar in the screen shots I have up. I'm showing the different colorings for the cast bar based on what kind of spell you're casting.

bar:SetAttribute(TARGET_STRING, 'focus')
end

Something like that.
Unfortunately, its significantly more complex than that in Bongos. You'll have to look at Bongos2_ActionBar/actionBar/bar.lua

After switching from Nurfed Actionbars due to macro problems the paging I need is a bit more.. complex than average.

I have bar1 set to page to bars 7,8,9 for warrior stances.

I also have bar1 set to page to bar6 for alt, and bar5 to shift.

Bar5 is set to page to bars 2,3,4 for battle, defensive, and berserker stances.

Now, here's the bug: When I have all that set, and press shift, I get an empty bar, presumably because bar1 is paging to bar5, not bars 2/3/4.

I can work around this by making dynamic macros, but it would be nice if this was fixed.

Again sorry if there is an obvious answer to this, I just got back into WoW and never used to use any addons
