BarKeep

** Now with support of bars that only appear on mouseover via the optional BarKeep_BarFader add-on. BarKeep_BarFader can be found in the 'Optional Files' tab. **

Here are the main features:
  • All the main action buttons can be configured to have from 1-12 buttons.
  • All the main action bars can be reconfigured to have up to 12 rows, so you can have 6 buttons x 2 rows, 3 buttons by 4 rows etc. This is done still using the Blizzard button code for compatibility.
  • All the main action bars can be scaled independently of one another.
  • Stance bar, possess bar, and pet bar can all be relocated to where the user wants them to be.
  • All bars can be hidden if you want, some using the Blizzard options from the interface menu, others using BarKeep.
  • The options are configured by a GUI accessed from /barkeep or /bk.
  • It uses an event / hook based structure for minimal CPU usage.
I want to say thanks to the previous developers of this CleanBar & CleanBarAdvanced since BarKeep would not be possible without their initial help.

So why use BarKeep?

It enables complete rearrangement and scaling of the Blizzard bars and so has some advantages over the traditional bar mod:
  1. It uses Blizzards buttons (and button code). So pretty much it's always compatible if Blizzard make any changes.
  2. Its really light in use - doesn't use a lot of memory and CPU cycles.
  3. It seems pretty stable as a result of the above.
  4. It'll work with cooldown, ranged mods that work with Blizzard buttons and also ButtonFacade with another small mod.
Commands:

/barkeep - show the config screen.
/bk - show the config screen.

FAQ:
  • I can't see all the bars when I first use the addon. All I see are the '+'s that enable the bar placement? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to set which bars are active or not, just as you would the Blizzard bars.
  • How do I set the Key Bindings? - Use the Blizzard Key Bindings interface to set the bindings for all the bars.
  • How do I lock the actions on the bars? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to lock the Blizzard bars.
  • How do I permanently show the empty buttons? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to show the empty button grid.
Future Plans:
  • Bug fixes once identified.
  • A BarKeep_XP optional module to manage the XP bar.
  • A reconfiguration of the mod to easily allow for additional layout types for the bars. This should be fairly easy to do, it'll just require a some coding in BarKeep.lua and a change to the configuration screen, but could take some time as I'll make the changes slowly and test carefully.

Known Issues:
  • None.

Damn, that's too bad.
But thanks for your response anyway
I can't use the current version anyhow, as I'm playing on a 3.5.5 WoW version.
(Even if it hasn't changed alot) That's why I was asking in the first place

50100.03

I've updated BarKeep to 50100.03. With this version I've attempted to improve the talent swapping by paying better care to only execute BarKeep's bar adjustments after the talent swapping has been completed. I've carried that philosophy into a couple of other tweaks also, so overall the add-on should be even more stable than previously. I've also removed some old code that was commented out as I've noticed no adverse issues since making those changes and corrected a bug with the settings UI.

Please let me know if the talent swapping is improved or there are any further issues that have cropped up as a result of these changes.

I don't have a version any more and it probably wouldn't help you even if I did. There have just been too many API changes since WotLK when BarKeep 3.5.5 was the current version, and that would require a lot of extensive debugging on your part. And by doing that you'd end up with something very similar to the 50100.03 version that's current. I haven't added any features (that I can recall) since that time and the only real change is that the Vehicle bar management has been changed to use Blizzard's original bars (as this is now common with Blizzard's Pet Battle interface).

Which class & specs are involved in the change? If you let me know I'll see if I can replicate this with the characters I have.

I'm about to complete some further 'tidy up' work in preparation for the 5.2 patch so this comes at a good time for me to work on it.

Update posted for WoW 5.1. This version should have resolved the Stance Bar appearing during combat (I didn't notice it happening during testing) & have removed the Vehicle Bar options that are no longer current ( I think). Please let me know if you notice these or other issues.

The current version (for WoW client 5.04) works well if you download it and set WoW to ignore add-on versions. It's very stable and the only issue I've currently found that the stance bar sometimes 'un-hides' in combat. There is a fix for this that is currently undergoing testing.

As a result I expect to issue an update for WoW client 5.1 by the end of the weekend. This version will (ideally) correct the stance bar in-combat issue and tidy up the options screen a little to remove the vehicle bar scale & position options. Don't be alarmed - I fully intend to enable scaling of the vehicle and battle pet bars - but this will require some development work and the temporary fix is to reduce confusion by bringing the UI in-line with BarKeep's capability.

There'll be one noticeable initial change. Blizzard have completely reworked the vehicle bar and I cannot find the code in FrameXML any more. So this first version - and perhaps all the rest - will use the Blizzard vehicle & pet combat bars & art as a result. It's not a big hardship and the transitions will work great. I'll likely add the ability to scale these bars fairly quickly. Another significant change is that Blizzard have cleaned up the code around stealth / stance / shapeshift bars so I suspect this will work better also.

sitting and Rolling my fingers for the update!

settings between sessions...

love the bar mod look and feel (and size...100k running) and have been looking for something to replace BT4 since it's just too bloated nowadays, but while it looked great at first glance I noticed the following bugs:

1. the scale settings don't seem to apply upon load correctly, although the sliders are set appropriately and those do hold. Just selecting the slider causes them to jump to the proper scale. Most likely in the initialization phase they're not looked up (PLAYER_LOGIN or PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD triggers probably).

2. the micromenu remains "movable" with the "x" marker showing even when "locked" is checked in the options panel. Reloadui doesn't seem to clear it either and continues to stay that way...

Anyway, I know you haven't updated this one in a while so if you're not planning to continue with it into MoP let us know.

thanks for the great work!

Where are the settings stored? Did not want to set it for all 10 characters.

Times the code could also be adjusted constantly get error messages relating to the key ring.

I love this bar mod, I am having some issues when using stealth though. It shows buttons from my out of stealth bar on my stealth bar sometimes.

There also seems to be issues when entering a vehicle, it works, but it's messed up looking. Is there a way to just use the blizz default vehicle bar?
