Bongos3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.3
by: Tuller [More]
I have written a new action bar addon, called Dominos, and am no longer supporting this one. Please feel free to try it out, along with Trinity Bars, and Bartender 3

Bongos3 is a main action bar replacement designed be both powerful, yet lightweight and easy to use.

Have Questions? Check out the wiki first!

Included Addons:
  • Bongos - The core addon.
  • Bongos_AB - The action bar portion of Bongos.
  • Bongos_CastBar - A casting bar replacement. Colors the bar based on if the spell being cast is helpful, harmful or neutral. Also includes a timer.
  • Bongos_RollBar - Makes the dialogs that pop up when rolling on items movable.
  • Bongos_Stats - A movable framerate, latency, and addon memory usage indicator.
  • Bongos_XP -A movable experience/reputation bar.
  • Bongos_Options - A load on demand options menu.

Features
  • Every bar can be moved, hidden, and have its scale and opacity altered
  • Sticky bars - Each bar can be anchored to any other bar
  • 120 action buttons, which can be setup in any number of bars
  • Customizable stance transitions and state visibility for each action bar
  • Buff and debuff highlighting on action buttons
1.3

* Added jailborc's XP bar modifications
* Fixed errors with the class bar under the case of a class with no classbar skills.

1.1
* Fixed a bug causing my upgrade code not to run. If you're upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1, please make sure you've set a bar as the possess bar
* Fixed typo

1.0
* The possess bar will now default to the pet bar if no action bar has been set to act as it
* You can now only have one possess bar at a time
* Bongos now fires two Ace3 messages: BONGOS_LOCK_ENABLE and BONGOS_LOCK_DISABLE

Gamma.1
* Fixed some grammar issues

Beta.12
* Fixed a bug causing disabling sticky bars causing bars to move out of place
* Fixed bug causing bindings to clear on a new version update
* Fixed a bug causing bindings to not disable properly when removing a button or loading a profile
* Added an option to show tooltips only in combat
* Slightly tweaked the interface options menu

Beta.11
* Added an option to make the pet bar act as the possess bar
* Made the binding and config mode dialogs movable
* Fixed a bug for new users

Beta 10:
* Added a Page slider to each stance menu, tried to make the bar creation help more informative/noticeable.

Beta 9:
* Replaced the term Action Set with paging, and altered all of the stance sliders to say Page X instead of simply X
* Differentiated Page 1 from the default state of do nothing, called Disabled.
* Changed the format used for creating the right click menu for action bars to be table driven. Take a look at Bongos_AB/actionBarConfig.lua if you wanna edit it.

Thanks for the response.

I checked out Trinity the other day whilst searching for a solution but the mod, despite its in-depth paging configurations, didn't appear to allow this specific functionality.

So a question. Has Bongos ever supported this functionality?
I also used bongos as my action bar mod in the past and for some reason, I remember that it did but I may be mistaken. I've recently installed both Bongos2 and Bongos3 to discover that this kind of functionality is not, or is no longer, supported in the mod (or indeed any other current action bar mods).

Do you think it's possible for this functionality to be added to Bongos3?

Been away from WoW for nearly a year and a half but it's good to see you're still making great addons Tuller. I've returned to the game just recently and I've ran into a custom UI conundrum, regarding Bongos3, that I hope you can shed some light on.

It relates to bar paging but a little explanation is required to give my questions some context...

Many years ago, I used to use Gypsymod for one specific reason - That V key bar switching feature. If you don't remember, basically you had two action bars and if you HELD DOWN the V key, those two action bars would switch to another set of bars. RELEASING the V key would see the action bars return to their original state. So kind of like state switching (druid forms, stealth etc.) but substituting the state requirement for a keybind that you held down and released.

This meant that I access to 4 actions bars as follows...

Bar 1 Actions = Keys 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...etc.
Bar 2 Actions = (HOLDIND SHIFT) Keys 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...etc.
Bar 3 Actions = (HOLDING V) Keys 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...etc.
Bar 4 Actions = (HOLDIND SHIFT + V) Keys 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...etc.

I also used Discord Action Bars to achieve the same functionality.

So a question. Has Bongos ever supported this functionality?

Do you think it's possible for this functionality to be added to Bongos3?

Maybe allow paging/bar swicthing to respond to both up and down key states separately (this is how DAB achieved the functionality). Or introduce the ability to create custom modifiers other than the Blizzard standard SHIFT, ALT and CTRL ones when creating keybinds.

Or have changes by Blizzard regarding what is possible in mods stopped allowing any of this?


Bit of a long post so apologies for that. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

Cheers,
Sie.

However, when i use the "scroll to next/previous page command", it lags when I scroll and often i have to scroll multiple times for the bar to change pages. This occurs whether i use a mousewheel or keybind, so I doubt its my hardware.
That is indeed strange. What addons are you running?

You need to download bongos cornucopia as those modules are no longer included with Bongos as of Bongos 3.

There's likely to be a Gamma.2, but after that, we're looking at Bongos3 1.0. After that, there will be a new download page.

Hi there,
I really like Bongos3 but I have some questions / requests:

- Is there a way to use the default keyring symbol instead of the blue bag?
- Can the text on the XP bar configured (e.g. I don't need the % value and would like to make the bar smaller)?
- With regards to the XP bar, could it also be given a nice frame, e.g. like the new casting bar?

Other than that a really nice bar addon (I also liked the options TrintyBars had with adding buttons to fold/unfold whole bars but overall Bongos3 is simpler to use).

EDIT: BTW nice comments in the actionBarConfig.lua. I managed to easily add the option for switching to an additional bar by pressing CTRL + ALT.

Bug with the upgrade code. Its a beta, so yeah :P

With beta 11, I just noticed that action bar 1 stays set as the possess bar even when setting another bar (pet bar in this case) to the possess bar... is that intended behavior and would 2 or more bars actually change to the possess bar if selected? Thanks Tuller!
If you want only one bar to act as the possess bar, then uncheck the rest of them

Those errors should be fixed in the latest beta (11).
