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.

Back on-line and up and running. So the priority over the next week or so is to get the BarKeep_BarFader module working perfectly and put it up here.

Edit: I now have the BarFader module working perfectly on all the bars without using OnUpdates (so as light as possible). I'll do a bit more testing but expect to see it before the weekend.

Neither of those are possible right now with BarKeep at the moment. The first will be added as an improvement eventually, and the second would make a good add-in at some point also.

Some further news: I've figured out a cunning way to do the bar fading without needing an on update function. It needs some further testing, but as I've just moved countries and can't get my gaming laptop to talk to the cable modem then it may be a couple of days before I can get to it (I need to diagnose why the computer won't work with the modem first).

Sure do. BarKeep_BarFader will be able to fade all bars (as basically BloodDruid's code can be used for them all). I've just started the testing phase of BarKeep_BarFader and it's currently working on the Micro bar and the Bag Bar, so all things going well it shouldn't be too long until release.

Ok - it seems hooking to the 'ToPlayerArt' function isn't working as that's not always always firing (and yet the 'ToVehicleArt' must be). I'll look into the Blizzard code and see if there I can duplicate what they do exactly (using events and some further checking then). I've been trying to do this as simply as possible but it seems that's an issue, so I'll do it the complicated way.

Edit: I have a version 30000.20 that - crossed fingers - fixes all this. I'll try to test this version some more today and then put it up.

Sorry, spoke too soon.. Just got done with a quest that required me to take over one of those ghostly guys.. at shadow vault.. after completing the quests, leaving the ghost possession.. (vehicle like controls) My bars were still MIA as if I was still in the vehicle.. but no vehicle bar or any other ones.

Also changed back again to hooking the change over rather than events to avoid the Malygos vortex issue. Vehicle bar should now work perfectly moving forward (crossed fingers). Almost there!
No issues all day.. looks good on my end.

Arghh - that means the "PLAYER_ENTERED_VEHICLE" event with the arguement "player" fired on entering the vortex. Not sure why that would happen. I'll switch back to securehooking the "MainMenuBar_ToVehicleArt" function to get this correct (as I prefered to use the event).

This Blizzard vehicle bar change-over code is really pretty crappy. I'll test out this next version fairly throughly over the next day or so and then post another update. Anyway we're almost there.

Now ... back to the bar fading add-in.
I ran it through all my alts.. vehicles.. ports, gundrak and anything else I could think of.. had no issues whatsoever!

Thank you! It's fixed for me. Awesome job!

Loaded up version .18, and had a strange bug in EoE.

When Malygos did his Vortex, all my action bars except the main bar disappeared. (Didn't have any problems with the vehicle changes.)
