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

Colors

Hmmm, how do you figure out the colors ?
I found something in the LUA file that said:
button:SetBackdropColor(0.3, 0.5, 1, 0.5)
bar:SetStatusBarColor(0, 0.5, 1, 0.8)

Don't know if that is what you need to correct, but I tried some different combinations (That I can't remember) where I got purple and white.
I really don't know what colors I will bring forth when I change it, 'cause it's not RGB.

To change the color of the text, are these the correct lines to play with?

getglobal("ElkBuffButton"..i.."DescribeText"):SetTextColor(1, 1, 1)
getglobal("ElkBuffButton"..i.."DurationText"):SetTextColor(1, 1, 1)

I tried changing these values, but the text remains white.

Also, some people have white vertical lines at the tip of each end of the bars like in this picture, http://www.sadcactus.com/echidna/priestUI2.jpg

How do you do that?

I think this mod is amazing, however I have 2 problems with it.

1)The settings dont save per each character. I dont know if they are desighed to or not, but because I have different setups for all of my characters, I cant have them all apear in the same spot.

2)There is no way to change the color in game. I noticed you have to go into the lua files to do it. And I would, except I'm scared to cause I might blow something up

Otherwise, I do like the work that you've done. If #1 is an error to be fixed, please hurry, I want to remove all CT from my characters as soon a possible, and The only one I have is CT for the colored buffs (untill I can use yours )

Thanks!!

Yes me too but I am planning to switch to this mod with Ace2. I love Ace2 engine.

I was at 26-31 mb mods load non-Ace

later I switch all the mods to Ace engine

now I am running at 18-23 mb.

well, it's built in (eg /ebb anchor bottomright) but for some reasons it sometimes breaks upon relog :/
EBB2's code will hopefully not have that problem.

I'm having a problem with EBB, i cant turn the dbcolor off, if i set it to false, then when i relog or reload my ui, it just resets to true. I've tried deleting my saved variables, but that didn't work. If anyone could help me it would be great.
