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

Even after trying /bongos unlockbuttons, I cannot drag any of the button contents around. Haven't had a chance to dig deeper yet.

Potentially, its a nurfed issue. If you have nurfed installed, make sure the option to lock actionbuttons isn't enabled.

Tivoli's code is notorious for this. He actually overrides the default UI behavior for the unlock process. The version of Nurfed you use is required to show you the way to undo this.

This looks so damn nice. I wish, urge, yearn to use it. But I can't. I miss functionality I need to play WoW.

Pretty please, Turn Page on Press. Like Gypsy? I'm still stuck with Gypsy, for a year and a half already now. Buttonpressdown...topple bars. Buttonpressup (release), topple back.

Any remote chance this will ever be in Bongos? Please?


[edit] I got Cladhaire's old PageOnPress to work with this. I am soooo happy right now. Thank you for the nicest, cleanest action bars I ever saw. And I've had them all, searching for good, lightweight bars that could TPoP. 18 months, and finally, a new bar mod. Thanks again!!

[edit] Well, something had to go wrong, ofcourse. This combo doesn't like dying much. Messes up the bars. Have to fiddle... Getting it in Bongos would be sooo good.

Maahe:

I'm new to PageOnPress (v 1.1 found on Curse) and aren't really used to it, but I've been testing this out to try to replicate your problem. What exactly messes up with your bars? What key to you have it bound to? If it's shift I can see a problem where your bars would flip unless you've changed that keybinding, and if it your quickmove binding I can see that as well.

I haven't had any issues with it yet, passive, buffing, macros, or in combat.

I use MouseButton 4. Enabled Paging for all bars, and using PageOnPress from Cladhaire indeed.

Simply, sometimes after dying, the bars stick in place. Only thing that fixes it is a /console reloadui. I suspect when shapeshifted (bars switch positions), or with the bars otherwise "paged" - so also by having the button pressed down at that moment.

I'm using Bongos all this time now, and it really is a minor, minor problem. Not to mention it is the ONLY problem (not even a Bongos problem, but Bongos + PoP), and I'm completely loving Bongos. Thanks again!

Yes, it's not really a Bongos issue, but this is an interesting functionality. I feel like it may be in issue with Paging a Paged bar. I'll look into it more either tonight or tomorrow morning.

Thank You

First, thanks for this simple bar mod. I had been playing around w/ DAB and it's just got too many options.

Second, not sure this is a bug, or just something I did, but on my main, I set up the various bars, saved the profile, and set about playing an alt. As I started the alt, I noticed that the "main" and "bag" menus don't show. I tried loading the profile I previously saved - nope. I unlocked the bars and the oddest thing happens, I can see the "menu" and "bar" titles, but no bar. I'm not sure what I've done, but no matter what I try (hiding/unhiding, locking/unlocking, etc.) I cannot get the two bars to show although their titles will show.

I wish I could log on this morning and check my main as I have not been able to confirm if the same thing is happening there.

I think I may have figured out my problem - the alpha settings of both bars. While perusing the .lua file, I discovered that the alpha was set to "0." I'll try fixing this when the servers come back up.

The alpha setting was the problem. I increased the alpha to where I like it and reloaded the UI and all is well.

Bongos and 1.12

In 1.12, Blizzard included a little surprise for me, battlegrounds chat. Battlegrounds chat is used via /bg, so I now have to figure out a new short slash command for bongos, else people will have to type /bongos for all slash commands.

My initial plan is to now call the addon either Bongos Object Bars (/bob), or Bongos Action Bars (/bab). The rationale for calling it BOB would be that I'm thinking about making more parts of the interface, like the Minimap, movable.

Anyway, I'm open to name suggestions

/bong - so easy to remember :)

I wanted to suggest "/bong", but it seems too obvious. It may upset some as well. I believe /bgn or /bng is taken by Bagnon and /bo could be misconstrued as an emote informing someone they have B.O. (body odor).

Just go with /bong - you know you want to...

Sorry about getting back so slowly. The only nurfed thing I have installed is the nurfed combat log (and subsequently the nurfed utility library). Not sure if this was what you meant by nurfed (I understand he has a bunch of mods). Will poke around & see if it's perhaps a library function he has in there, and make a macro to /script nurfed_evil_unlock() call or something. Thanks.

Edit: Yeah, the code looked pretty suspicions. And, when clicking on the Nurfed minimap button, that unlocked things. Good call gentlemen! And thanks again.

Names and Suggestion

Bong sounds awsome

Anyways, was wondering if there was anyway to maybe include some sort of option to allow Bongo's mainbar to auto-switch (like rogue stealth/unstealth and druid forms) for priests going in and out of Shadowform?

At the momment I have to have 2 bars, 1 for healing and 1 for when I'm SF and switch em round, would be a GREAT addition to have the mainbar switch in and out :P
