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.

I haven't noticed this across my 3 main characters, but I'll test for this tonight. Just while I confirm this are there any other add-ons that may interact with the bar?

just thought I'd let you know. I'm not sure if it's one of my other addons, or if many other people are having this issue. But I'd love for it to be fixed because I love this thing. :]

Well its a Blizzard bug. I've put up a workaround that can be easily removed later and will post this in the Bugs forum. Use version 30300.3 which has the workaround.

Yeah that achievement bug just recently popped up. I'll look into the Blizzard code and post a fix soon.

Barkeep causing Lua Error with Achievements

Hi, seems that Barkeep (which I love) is interfering with the avhievements.

Message: ...ns\Blizzard_AchievementUI\Blizzard_AchievementUI.lua:671: attempt to call global 'AchievementMicroButton_Update' (a nil value)
Time: 12/12/09 18:59:03

Locals: self = AchievementFrameAchievements {

}

(*temporary) = "attempt to call global 'AchievementMicroButton_Update' (a nil value)"
updateTrackedAchievements = <function> defined @Interface\AddOns\Blizzard_AchievementUI\Blizzard_AchievementUI.lua:50
trackedAchievements = <table> {
}
That's the error message I get. Either when an achievement pops up or I open the tab. Disabling Barkeep stops the errors.

Also, if I disable the addon then renable it, all my settings are reset. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

I'm having that issue due to OpenRDX. Its caused by another mod unhiding the Blizzard MicroMenuBar. You'll need to request that add-on author to be able to disable that feature of their mod.

I can maybe try a few things to force it hidden again, but it'd be cleaner to find out the mod unhiding the frame and fix that.

Should now be done. Apologies about the time taken, but I play on a US server from Europe and the servers weren't up in time to test the 3.3 version (before bed). There was one easy to correct bug that caused the issue you have and I caught it as a result of testing so it probably was worthwhile to do the testing.

There is one more minor issue that I noticed. Blizzard have changed the 'hiding the empty buttons when the spellbook is closed' method and so this isn't working as well as in patch 3.2 in BarKeep. It's not a major issue by any means and I'll post a fix in the next couple of days - I just wanted to get a working 3.3 version out ASAP given the MicroMenuBar changes Blizzard made.

Exclamation Barkeep micro-bar problems

Having big problems with barkeep after the patch...just wondering if we are going to see a fix soon? Part of my micro bar is replacating itself and attaching to the main bar. Hope to see something soon. I love this mod and would hate to have to move on to something different. Thanks

The Totem Bar seems to be working just fine with 30200.12.

Thanks!

This version is labeled 'Beta' as I cannot test all the changes to the Totem Bar - namely the various 'Calls' and the 'Totemic Recall' - but the Totem Bar seems to work fine on my baby Shaman. Feedback on how this is working would be appreciated (note the previous version is archived in case of issues).

It should work well on all other classes even with HToC forced dismounting.

With patch 3.3 coming down the pike you'll need to update BarKeep. Blizzard has changed a couple of things in how the MicroMenuBar is handled (the new LfD for instance) and now that BarKeep implements its own version this needs to be updated.

The good news is that the code to manage this is in the last 3.2 version, I just need to test that it works fine and post the update.

For the few hours where you might get tooltip issues with the MicroMenuBar before I can update it, I suggest that you could just hide it and avoid these problems.

Yeah that issue is still there. Happens to me in ToC but not in HToC which is interesting.

But ... good news! It's caused by BarKeep shutting down the ability for Blizzard to move the microbuttons when setting up and exiting the vehicle interface. On pondering this further I've determined a cunning alternative way to stop this happening. It's in testing and there is one further (minor and easy just requires some testing) issue to resolve, but I expect that I'll have 30200.12 up after the weekend. Making that change removes all taint and so I expect the vehicle bar to work perfectly once this is done.

And then I can add the long promised new features.

Not a huge deal and doesn't bother me much, just informing.

[Edit] I've coded a potential fix so look for an update in 8 hours or so. I've no way to test the change so feedback on whether it worked would be helpful.
Updated, and it's all where it should be. Thanks!

I'll let you know what happens with any changes you might make.
