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

Ok how do I get this to work with my Rogues stealth bar? I can't find an option to make it switch on stealth/unstealth
ActionBar 1 should work just like the original main action bar. It switches to bar 7 when stealthing.

Thanks for clearing up my confusion on the Bongos stats thing, much appreciated. One more thing though. Is there a way i can view my exp gain with Bongos options?
If you're using the default player frames, then Bongos_Exp should show up behind your player's name. Hovering over your name will show your TNL. If you're not using the default frames, then I'd look for an experience bar

Since I'm not getting that error, it might have been caused due to the file location changes I made in the newest version (the cast bar and roll bar being made seperate again). Try completely removing the Bongos folder, the reinstalling. If you have Infield installed, you can delete that too, unless some other addon requires it, but that would probably only be Bagnon.

I want to ask a simple thing: Does layout customizable mean that you can rotate the bars as well ?
You can set the number of rows a bar has via its right click menu/slash commands, or did you mean somethng else?

Maybe Tuller can set his mod to use Ace and Timex, cornerstones of all my mods =).
I currently don't like the coding style of ace (not to say mine's any better or anything), so I'm not going to use ace.

I need 4 bars + autobar, cooldowns and the ability to scale as will. Bongos has all beside I can get rid of ABinfo.

Maybe Tuller can set his mod to use Ace and Timex, cornerstones of all my mods =).

I like the Bongo's architecture but I prefer getting some input before changing my bar customization (for the 10.000.000 times due to the fact i have yet to find a bar mod that full satisfy me).

I've tried that, no difference. To reproduce this (happen 100% of times I try) grab a button from a bar, click on another button on the bar, which will replace the grabbed one with the clicked, then try to stick the button you hold into a slot on the bar, it's impossible.

That is another mod. Not sure which, only thing that is almost like it I can think of now is AceLucenFrames.I got it aswell, mentioned it in an earlier post.
Realized it must be Sage by same author as Bongos and Bagnon.

Bongos 436 Changes

Changes are usually listed in Version History.txt, in the Bongos folder. I neglected to add these to that file.

Bongos 436 Changes:
  • Fixed a bug causing buttons to sometimes appear at the start of the screen at first load.
  • Moved the cast bar and roll bar back out to be seperate addons.
  • Modified Infield so that it no longer needs to be a seperate addon.
  • Added an experience bar behind the player's name, Bongos_Exp.
  • Bongos is no longer dependent on Infield. You can now remove Infield if Bongos was the only mod using it.

It's nice that you designed your mod to be modular. I chose not to use the experience and performance bits because I use the ones in bosspanel.

As someone else requested it would be nice with version notes. Thanks!

When I get the new version out later today/tomorrow morning, I'm adding an experience bar addon for the default unit frames.
