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

Do you support sorting by buff-type? By buff-type, I mean that I'd like all of my raid buffs (Fort, GOTW, AB, DS) to appear adjacent to each other so I can check them at a glance. Also all blessings appear adjacent to each other for the same reason.

It doesn't look like you have this support, but someone on EJ forums said you did.

(If you don't currently support it, would you be interested in adding that option?)

Can the color be changed for these bars? Blue does not go at all with my UI.

If i need to change the code myself...what line do I change for each?

Thank you, great looking addon.

OK, I've found the bug wrt debuff color... I shouldn't set things to nil to disable them and initialize them to true if not set ^^'. So it was saving correctly but when loading settings it was changed...

But I wonder why SvendTofte's change should fix anything since UpdateLayout() is the last call in InitSettings() anyways :/

Well, I added a line, self:UpdateLayout(); @ line 45 (just after "InitSettings"), this seems to fixes the "grow upwards" not saving. Whether this causes other bugs, I'm not sure, however I have not observed any. Use with caution, and only if you have the "wont achor to bottom correctly" feature.

I can go more into detail, but I'm just wondering if this is a problem others have experienced.

Hello, and thx for the great addon. I've got a simple question. Since I've started to play with my rogue alt its bothers me that debuffs are shown in between of weapon buffs and normal buffs. Is there ANY way to make debuffs go on top or on bottom of all other buffs ?

Thanks

That's the issue then.. I couldn't figure out how to "drag" it around and thusly thought it was locked to that anchor position.

I have it unlocked, but juct clicking and dragging doesnt appear to do anything... How do you drag it? Shift or alt modifiers??

Thanks!

Positioning for widescreen?

I play on a widescreen monitor, and the anchor positions don't seem to account for that... The Top-Right Anchor is in the Top-right for a standard 4:3 display....

Is there a way to get it to justify over to the right properly?

An Image of the issue....

Thanks in advance!
