Action Bar Saver  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v2.3.2
by: Shadowed [More]
Quick little mod, allows you to setup different profiles for your action bars. Mainly this is for hybrid classes that want to be able to respec without spending 10-20 minutes setting their action bars up. All you do is type /abs save <name> and it'll save the location of all your spells, macros and items.

For example, if you're currently a Feral Druid you can type /abs save feral then you can respec to Resto and setup your bars, then type /abs save resto once you go respec back to Feral you can then train all your spells again and type /abs restore feral and you'll get your feral setup without all the work of actually finding where you placed things.

Works with any custom interface like Bongos provided you're not using more then the standard 120 action buttons, ones that provided features to go past 120 will cause only the standard 120 to be saved/restored. This isn't a bug however, just a limitation in the WoW API

You're out of luck basically, we don't have a consistent way of identifying macros if they aren't named so we do it by content, if you change the content of the macro without re-saving the profile then it can't restore it.

It's not really a perfect system, but it's better then requiring you to name every macro, or having all of your macros messed up if you delete one or add a new one.

I CANNOT save a profile, /abs save [profile name without the brackets]

Cannot press enter, when I turn off ABS, it'll go through saying that its an invalid command.

I'll see if i can somehow get an error to pop up for ya.
If you install an error-capturing addon or go into
Options(Esc) -> Interface -> Game -> Help: Display Lua Errors (check it).

you will get an error and it'll be the one that's found a couple posts below.

It is fixed in a later revision (r802) for me, so your best bet is to wait for Shadowed to upload the file here too.

ActionBSDB is the old SV, ActionBarSaverDB is the new one. If it sees ActionBSDB it upgrades the format to ActionBarSaverDB and nils out ActionBSDB so it doesn't keep trying to upgrade.

Profiles are listed under unknown because theres no way of knowing that you saved them to a Warrior under the old format without scanning them and checking spells and such which is a hassle, they'll be automatically moved to your classes category if you do a restore with them and theres 0 restore errors, you could also do a rename and it'll move it.

For example, /abs rename Dridzt-tank tank then /abs rename tank Dridzt-tank should move it to the Warrior category.

I haven't gotten latest version yet, probably awaiting approval.. but to add a little something.

Should have checked my saved variables before first post actually.

There's 2 tables ActionBSDB and ActionBarSaverDB
For some reason my profiles are saved under "UNKNOWN" instead of "WARRIOR" under ActionBarSaverDB

Load issue? Can it be that my class is not available to addons when it tries to make the profile?

:Edit
Found your gcode and got r802, everything seems ok

Hi,
/abs save Dridzt-tank

Hyphen might be a problem?

:edit
I had existing profiles with similar names (name-spec most common) so I assumed it would be ok.

Is it recommended to nuke our savedvars as part of the upgrade?

I went from r717 to r800 with a couple profiles saved
(macros and items included on the actionbars)

I get the following error when I log on / reloadui / try to "abs delete <profile>"
Code:
[2008/07/05 02:18:07-4433-x1]: ActionBarSaver-$Revision$\ActionBarSaver.lua:41: bad argument #1 to 'gsub' (string expected, got nil)
ActionBarSaver-$Revision$\ActionBarSaver.lua:41: in function <Interface\AddOns\ActionBarSaver\ActionBarSaver.lua:16>

Thanks for any suggestions.

:Edit
Also chokes when I try to save a new profile:
Code:

The main change that you can see is profiles are stored by class, so you can have a profile named pvp for a Warrior and another for a Druid, but most of the changes are internal like redoing the saving/restoring code and also improving the storage format to have less issues with things with ";" in them and such.
