Extra Bars  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.7.16
by: Alternator [More]
Important
I have recently uploaded the initial release for the successor (replacement) to Extra Bars called Button Forge.
Button forge addresses several of the problems present in Extra Bars (such as Companions sometimes causing an error at first login, poor performance in certain scenerios etc), perhaps the biggest change is the ability to create as many or few bars and buttons as you choose.
I encourage you to take a look:

Button Forge


Note: I have uploaded a v4.0.1 compatible version of Extra Bars now! (I only plan to provide basic support for this addon, but I will try to keep it operational for the time being... I may have a longer term plan if I find the time at a later date i.e. Extra Bars using the Button Forge engine which is a better engine)

(Both addons can operate side by side if you want to give it a try first)




Description
Adds 4 extra action bar you can drag abilities, items, macros, mounts and critters to.
This bar will not alter your existing actionbars or other user interface elements in anyway.


Project goal
To provide additional action bars to the user interface with as little learning curve or time spent configuring as possible.


Features
This bar is modelled very closely around how the standard action bars work. This includes features such as:
  • Dragging of macros, items, abilities, mounts and critters to the bar
  • range, cooldown, hotkey, etc... indicators
  • A different set of actions for each talent spec
  • Automatically update abilities to the highest rank when new abilities are learnt

Additional features include:
  • The ability to drag the bar to the desired location on screen (this can be locked in the settings screen)
  • Abilities that are unlearnt will remain in bar as a faded '?' and will become usable again once the ability is relearnt (for respeccing)
  • The ability to drag any item to the bar even if it doesn't have a use (this can help to keep track of counts of an item)
  • Dynamically set the number of buttons per bar (1 - 12)
  • Disable Tooltips
  • position the bar horizontally or vertically


Usage
  • To add buttons drag them from your inventory, spell book, macro's tab, or from other buttons into the button you want them in.
  • To change settings go to the Interface->Addons->Extra Bar menu option
  • A faint icon can be found at the top right corner of each bar, clicking this will provide some quick graphical options to configure the bar including a shortcut button to the bars configuration page
  • To bind keys to the buttons go to the 'Extra Bar' section of 'Key Bindings'

Restrictions:
  • Most settings cannot be changed while in combat
  • Actions cannot be dragged to or from the bar while in combat


Issues
  1. Macros with identical names may be switched around on the bar
  2. Items with a cooldown do not display the time remaining in the tooltip
  3. Critters and Mounts do not darken if they cannot be used
  4. the visual state of a macro that casts a mount or critter may not be displayed up to date

Notice: This mod is in beta, I will try to deal with any issues that arise as I have time but please feel free to list issues if they occur.


Planned Features

Planned for next version:
  1. Add option to allow graphical configuration options to be fully hidden
  2. Add slash commands for config options
  3. Investigate Button Facade and rActionButtonStyler support
  4. ...

Planned to be implemented by version 1.0:
  1. Provide localization support
  2. Provide full reset ability
  3. Custom interface for key bindings (to allow the next feature to be viable)
  4. Dynamic creation of extra buttons and bars (as many or few as you desire)
  5. Conditional bar display (based on macro conditionals)

Possible future features:
  1. Provide extra display info on the buttons such as cooldown times
  2. Buttonfacade or other skinning addon support ?!?

Question Hiding the faint icon

Hey Alternator!

Thanks for a great addon!
I would like to know if there is a way to hide the faint icon which can be found at the top right corner of each bar ?

Extra Bars v0.7.16

Hi, just a quick update to get WoW v5.3 to recognise Extra Bars as a current addon. I got a bit delayed on providing this.

It isn't possible currently, but it is something I could look at altering, I'm not too sure when the next feature change for Extra Bars will be though (I'm currently, slowly getting a new v of Button Forge ready).

Updated for WoW v5.1

Extra Bars v0.7.13 is now up

I've uploaded a version for v5.1 of WoW.

I've also added support for Battle pets so you should now be able to add them to the Extra Bars.

Regards

This is just a confirm that I will be updating Extra Bars hopefully in the next 24hrs (I've run out of time tonight) - I expect that errors will occur when Battlepets are on the bar, but if you get other issues please let me know.

Regards

Hey thanks for the comments and apologies for the slow reply.


Glauck, at the moment there isn't the ability to have fully red buttons on range, and unfortunately range addons aren't able to interact with this addon.
This is an often requested feature for Button Forge and something I can hopefully add to it sooner rather than later - if it proves to be fairly straight forward I should also be able to port the option to Extra Bars.

I've just uploaed a minor change (v0.7.12) - provided the hide on vehicle option is set, then the bar will also hide when the override bar is active (e.g. when doing darkmoon dailies).

Yikes, I never saw that error post of yours, and it's been some time - it may be completely too late or redundant but clearing the savedvariables for ExtraBars could have been something to try.

At any rate, I have a new version on extra bars that is v5.0.4 of WoW compatible.

It is Extra Bars v0.7.11

v0.7.10

I've been meaning to keep the version date of this addon updated for content patches but missed the last couple:

This new upload is for v4.3 of WoW.

Also I've added a delay before removing missing macros from Extra Bars when logging in to hopefully avoid issues with macros sometimes being removed from the bars at login.

I really love this addon so special thanks to Alternator

..Hoping for a 4.1 update
Thanks for the comment too

Actually it was on my list to update the client number so that it would operate on v4.1 without needing to load out of date addons set. I kind of let it slip.


I'm not too clear on what you're describing?
Each of the 4 bars can be individually configured to show or hide while you have the vehicle UI.
I'll take a look at the code and make sure it is using the best method for checking if the player is in or out of a vehicle just in case.
