Elkano's BuffBars  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.

Due to changes Blizzard made with WoW 4.x it's no longer possible to cancel buffs without the use of secure frames. Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version.

Version 2.x is a total recode based on the Ace2 framework which became necessary in order to support some of the longtime wanted and suggested features.
It's now possible to show different groups of bars which can be configured in many ways. Each group can be assigned an individual look and filter settings.
EBB can be configured via a dropdown menu which is accessible via chat (/ebb config), FuBar plugin or (for the group settings) by right clicking the groups anchor.
After setting up a group, its anchor can be hidden by alt-left clicking a bar or the anchor itself in order to lock the group in place.

In order to get additional bar textures and fonts for EBB simply install SharedMedia which is available for download under http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/sharedmedia.aspx

Minimum width of the bars

Love the mod, but is there any chance you can make the min width of the buff bars less than 100? Or could you educate me in how I could make the changes myself? I fiddled with the scaling, but then the text became annoyingly tiny, so that didn't really solve my problem.

Also, getting the bars to empty to the left towards the icons with the "/ebb icon right" command would be a nice superficial change. Currently the bars empty to the left regardless of which side the icon is on.

Thanks much, and keep up the good work!

like the text above implies TENCH is short for temporary enchants.

I think it uses SharedMedia and SharedMediaLib - sorta the new generation of Surfaces. SurfaceControl still works with it, too.

It's funny you mention that as it's what I was going to suggest.

However, I'd go one step further (in a sense) and suggest that instead of adding extra textures, just switch to hooking into SurfaceLib for the texture handling. It already exists and it's really why Ace is there to begin with, no?

At any rate, superb mod. It is a staple for me. Keep up the good work, kind sir.

Is it possible to have tracking of all sorts added to the buff monitor? I'd like to have my find minerals icon removed from my minimap and placed with my buffs. I was pretty sure I saw some screenshots of EBB (or a similar addon, I guess) which had the tracking listed in with the buffs.
