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

Great addon I must say! I had to add a feature that I was missing from Gypsy however: Quickpaging. So I added a binding for it. If you want to add it to the official source here is the code (glanced at how Gypsy did it):

Code:
	<Binding name="QuickPage+1" runOnUp="true">
		if (keystate == "down") then
			CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE = CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE + 1;

			if (CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE > 10) then
				CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE = CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE - 10;
			end
			ChangeActionBarPage();
		elseif (keystate == "up") then
			CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE = CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE - 1;

			if (CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE == 0) then
				CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE = CURRENT_ACTIONBAR_PAGE + 10;
			end
			ChangeActionBarPage();
		end
	</Binding>

What is the best way to get the cooldown time displayed in numbers in the actionbar when using Bongos ? This is the only thing I really miss. Else the addon is really great !

It seems with bongos that my experience bar shows at always full? Maybe I'm doing something wrong... but changing it into a "reputation bar" (by checking the option "show as experience bar" in the Reputation tab) makes it work as intended for the reputation, going back and unckecking the opton gives me a full blue bar again (and I'm not even close to my next level yet )

This is not a problem for my level 60 main, but it is a bit annoying on my alts

I have two questions:

1) What exact does the prevent button mashing do? I'm assuming it limits the amount of times it will call the function for the button hit a second, but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of button mashing? Which is setting off the skill as soon as it's possible to be used.

2) Is it possible to add a feature which remembers paging through stance switching?
For Example:

For simplicity we will say that battle stance is bar 1, defensive 2, and berserker 3.
I then set my page skip to 3, so when in battle stance if I page up once I arrive at bar 4.
I think switch stances to berserker stance.

What happens currently: It remains at bar 4. When I page back down it pages back to 3.
What I would like to happen: It changes to bar 6. When I page back down it pages back to 3.

Basicly the idea is to have two sets of bars. One for PVP and one for PVE, which I can switch between by paging.

Came across an error today while using shift + mousewheel to try and scroll my hotbars:

Count: Infinite

Interface\AddOns\Bongos\actionBar\button.lua:536 attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'skip' (a nil value)

Put a nice fat error message on the screen that requires a logout to remove it unless you have a mod to catch such things. Apprectiate any help, if there is anything I can do feel free to PM me.

Edit: Another to add before I head to bed.

Count: 1
Error: Interface\AddOns\Bongos_Options\panels\paging.lua:13: Usage: BOptionsPanelPagingSkip:SetValue(value)

When in the Options menu and clicking on the paging "tab" I get this error.

*I am using the most current version posted here just FYI.

It possible that you upgraded from an old version. Try:
/script Bongos.skip = 0;

And if that doesn't work:
/script Bongos = nil;
/console reloadui

1) What exact does the prevent button mashing do? I'm assuming it limits the amount of times it will call the function for the button hit a second, but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of button mashing? Which is setting off the skill as soon as it's possible to be used.
Nothing anymore, but it was intended for people who mash stealth. I just forgot to remove the slash commands to toggle it apparently.

.The one is that the chat log messeges are behind the buttons and i can't see them.I want u to tell me how to fix this and the other is that when i change forms(i am a druid as u see)i have to press the buttons to attack and i can't use the hotkeys.What should i do about
First one, move the bars around, or move/resize the chatbox.
Second one, open up the keybindings window, and look for action button hotkeys. Somehow they were reset, and now you need to set them again.

Thumbs up My compliments to you, Tuller.

Thank you, Tuller, for making this mod. I have been using it for the better part of two months and have been quite satisfied with it.

You have done an excellent job.

Disable Shift-Scrolling

Is there a way to disable the Shift-scroll feature for the mainbar?

nvm... all this time I had no idea it was a keybinding

Thank you for adding /bg toggle. I was having to use a long macro you helped me with, great to now have this. Is it possible to script the toggle to appear when health/mana is less than or equal to say 40%. Can this be done, any ideas? Thank you.

Are you sure its a Bongos issue? I did notice my memory usage went up around the time of the patch, but it was because of the blizzard raid UI loading at startup. Take a look at MiniBlizzRaid to fix that problem.
