BarKeep  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 50400.03
by: Platykurtic [More]

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.

Given the impending release of 4.01 I'll delay the update until I have confirmed BarKeep works with the new patch on live.

I'm just finalizing the 30300.11 release - which will improve vehicle transitions for vehicles without abilities. Expect to see this and the ButtonFacade update over the next few days.

[Edit] Still being worked upon - the improvements just require testing, and there are no easy ways to do that other than quest until I get one of those vehicle types. The new release should happen sometime soon.

I'll have a look into it this coming weekend. This seems a new feature that I probably need to introduce into the add-on.

Ok I'll have a play with the latest version and see if I can come up with some code or a setting to re-enable the hotkey text on the vehicle. It should be doable fairly easily with some custom code.

hm yes, button facade is the reason, however swithing to "Blizzard Vehicle button facade" dosnt solve the problem, the only way to see hotkeys is to outload buttonfacade completely.

Its not related to ButtonFacade? The hotkeys should be there as you can see from the Vehicle Bar shot I added to the main page taken with 30300.10 version. If this still persists after checking then I'll delve into the code and see if I can come up with anything.

Hmmm, that could be related to the speeding of the change-over in 30300.8 release. In that release I removed the BarKeep update (which may mean the buttons don't get updated at all I recall as I've halted Blizzard repositioning & therofore maybe updating the bar). I've not noticed as I use a macro on my Rogue (which'd be the same) and so don't display the stance bar.

I'll check this tonight. If I'm correct the fix is pretty easy.

Found an issue with shadow priests. My stance back is blacked out...can't select shadow form. It sometimes appears but for the most part, I need to drag the spell to my action bar.

Updated version 30300.9 to resolve the first two issues as reported below. Specifically:

1) BarKeep should now hide (only those) MainBar buttons where the BonusActionButton bar doesn't have actions. It also does the hiding at an earlier point in the transition. This should leave the transition as quick as it was before, so any feedback would be appreciated. If this doesn't work I'll have the BonusActionButton background 'fade out' the underlying MainMenuBar button.

2) A likely fix for the 'keyring button is shown and is not hidden if I get my first key' bug report. This is pretty hard for me to test so any feedback on this is handy also.

2) Key ring bug - if you have 0 keys and you pick a key, key ring will appear, even if it is turned off in options

3) no option for editing stance bar scale/vertical&gorizontal position
1) The first is caused by the recent changes to speed the change-over. Having said that I can probably re-add the 'setting the MainBar transparent' by intelligently adding that functionality back at the start of the transition. It'll take a few days as I'm pretty busy over the next couple of days.

2) I'll look into fixing this - should be pretty easy once I've found the hook to use.

3) That should be in there - scaling might be missing, but you should be able to move it. I'll check this still works.

New version in a few days to improve all this. None of those are really critical which is nice.

hope you understand me )
