Action Bar Configuration
Is it possible to change the number of rows an action bar has? I use a Logitech G13 game pad for WOW, and before I switched to nUI I used Bartender 4 to change the layout of my action bars. With Bartender 4 I would change them so there were 3 rows of 4 buttons each, to match the layout of my G13.

Ive gone through the FAQ, but I did not find anything that would allow me to change the number of rows of the action bars. Is there a way to do this?

Hmm, I think someone posted a thread somewhere on how to change the layout to suit that. Browsing around to see if I can find it again...

Ah nope, that was for N52.

But it gives you an example of how they changed it to set their layout. Basically it involves editing the layout files and using trial and error to get the layout the way you want.

Yup... just edit [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > nUI_Layout_Default_Dashboard.lua ] and locate the section for the action bars... just change the values of rows = 1 to rows = 4 and cols = 12 to cols = 4 for each action bar you want to modify and save, then do a '/nui rl' to see the results.

You can use '/nui movers' to unlock the action bars so you can drag them to new positions, as well.

Thanks for the quick replies. Modifying the default layout file did the trick. Though it did bring up another problem. Is there anyway to remove the paging arrows at the right side of the main action bar?

No... unfortunately.

Extra Buttonbar
Is it possible to add an extra buttonbar?

nUI5 already employs all of the bars it's possible to support using the standard Blizzard bar system. nUI6 does make use of advanced bar features that will give you the ability to use more bars, however, that ability is not yet available in the alpha version.

More bars help please, trying to avoid loading Bartender
I am thinking of loading Bartender again. Hate too. I want to reduce my addons for more speed and stability.
I am trying nui for the 1st time, and it looks great, but I can't figure out one thing that is a real problem.
The top bar, that has a scroll bar to page flip. I want it split into 2 bard side-by-side.
If there's no way to do it, the I will load Bartender.

Does anyone know it nui can do this?

The other cool thing about Bartender is the keybindings. I wish nui was as easy. uou can just mouse-over and press the key. It's a lot simpler.

I also removed Pratt and the chat in nui looks ok, but no sounds.
I may have to load ChatSounds again it nui is silent.

Any help on thse issues would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

The top bar is the main action bar and all of the buttons work together as a group. There's no direct way I can think of to split it into two bars unless you just want to put the bar on two rows instead of one. That you can do easily. Look in [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > nUI_Layout_Default_Dashboard.lua ] and locate the nUI_DefaultConfig.ButtonBars section. The one we care about is ["nUI_ActionBar"]

You can make it two rows of six columns by making the change indicated here...


    ["nUI_ActionBar"] =
        btn_size = 53.5,
        gap      = 2,
        anchor  = "BOTTOM",
        xOfs    = 0,
        yOfs    = 123,
        rows    = 2,
        cols    = 6,
        page    = 1,
        nuibind  = "nUI_ACTIONBAR",
        binding  = "ACTIONBUTTON",
        label    = nUI_L["nUI_ActionBar"],

As for the key bindings... you can just mouse over the button and ctrl-alt-right-click to set the bindings.

And, no, nUI does not do chat sounds, so you would want to reinstall that if you like that.
