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
* Bugfixes

1.2e
* Fixed a petbar error

1.2d
* Updated keybound

1.2c
* Corrected zip file structure

1.2b
* Removed an erroneous debug print

1.2
* Switched to using LibKeyBound instead of KeyBound
* 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.

Everyone seems a bit confused by action sets. I'm going to look into redesigning the system.

Bongos2 should work fine in 2.4. Bongos3 is very different than Bongos2, and you should be prepared to redo your setup if you choose to upgrade.

If I install Bongos3 and try it, and then deactivate it and return to Bongos2, will my Bongos2 preferences will remain as they were?

And if someday I go back to Bongos3, will all those preferences remains as well?

I guess yes, since Tuller stated that there is no way to import our Bongos2 preferences to Bongos3, but I just want to ask before trying Bongos3
If I've coded everything properly, then it should be possible to run Bongos2 and 3 at the same time :P So, running one will not trash the settings of the other. Action button positions are currently saved on blizzard's servers. So if you change the position of one button in one system, it will change in the other system (and in the standard ui, too).

I notice small "bugs" with a localized client, on words contains a latin accentuated char replaced by a "?"

There were already present on B2 version.

Opacity = Opacité in french, Visibility = Visbilité
Noted. I think that's the one file I shouldn't be saving in UTF-8.

Is there a way to get the mini-map component separate from the action bar component, like in Bongos2? I use a different action bar mod for all my non-druids/warriors and having to download a different mod JUST to move the mini-map for them makes Bongos3 really not worth it for me.
Bongos_Minimap will not be included in the standard download when Bongos3 is released. Jalborc will be including a version in a new mod of his, Bongos_Cornucopia.

That being said, if you're using Bongos just for a minimap, I'd look for another solution

Hover over the minimap button and shift + left-click to enter binding mode. Hover over a button and press the button (or a combination of them) to bind it to that key.

About Bongos 2 and 3 preferences

Hi Tuller, thank you for this new Bongos !

I notice small "bugs" with a localized client, on words contains a latin accentuated char replaced by a "?"

There were already present on B2 version.

Bongos_Minimap.

Changing Pages of action bars doesn't work like it used to, when you bring up the per action bar menu then go into modifiers, the slider on has the pages of stances. Meaning going from bar 1 to bar 2 on shift press is impossible unless you put it in your stance bar.

edit: after creating a new bar stances/paging/modifiers and everything stops functioning.

Scrap that just saw action sets and all seems to be well now :P.

With Bongos2 I had action bars positioned with buttons in the lower left and lower right corners. This allowed me quick access to a couple of "emergency buttons" with mouse gestures: peg the pointer in the corner and click. Bongos3 has a one-pixel border which doesn't respond to clicks, so I can't do this anymore. Would be nice to have this function back. I could probably fix it myself, but I haven't played much with Lua, and Bongos is a big beast! Any pointers on where to look?

I'm trying to tell the action bar which bar to switch to for my druid stances, but I can't change it to anything but 1. It just won't move across the bar at all.
Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

Edit: After poking around a bit more, I see that I can't adjust ANY of the action bar options in the window that you get by right clicking the action bar in config mode. Stance, paging, modifier.... none of these seem to be able to move, but I CAN change any of the settings on the layout tab.

If I have all my action bars setup and I try to add an action set, it tries to use the next action bar's buttons. So, if I try to add a stance to action bar 1, it uses the already setup action bar 2.

I really like the control bongos 2 gave over which action bar it would use for each stance. Is there a way for me to do something similar in bongos 3?
