Button Cooldown?

On my old UI I had cooldowns for my warlock dots right on the button bars, I'm wondering if this is possible with this UI. I think it was bongos or domino's or something that did it. Thanks.

OmniCC did it.

I'm not sure I would call them cooldowns, aura timers maybe... in any event, in nUI they are their own bar in the HUD which is intended to keep your eye where the combat is. If you don't like the HUD health/power bars, you can just select the "Simple HUD" mode.

He isn't talking about those lil icons indicating the DoTs on the target. He means the cooldowns on the icons placed on the actionbars. Again , OmniCC addon did it.

None of the lock talents have cooldowns that I can recall ( I have a 73 lock ) and nUI's action bars already have cooldown counters -- so unless I'm missing something, he's asking if he can have timers for how much longer his afflictions are going to be on the target... which is what those buttons on the aura bar in the HUD are for.

Or am I mistaken on what is being asked for?

Ok, they aren't really cooldowns per say. What I had is very very similar to what is on the HUD. The buttons themselves had countdown timers to when the DOT would fade. As a warlock, some of the dot's ramp up in damage, so re-applying BEFORE they fade is a bad idea (Immolate is one, think CoA is another). What this did was outline the button in RED and counted down, when the target no-longer had the dot on it (or if you switched targets!) it would clear the red border on the button, and the countdown would dissapear. Call me lazy I guess, but I liked it.

@Doomlord: OmniCC does indeed put up the "cooldown" (alot of DOT's make you wait after casting before you can cast again). And this did help (again with timing spell casts), but wasn't exactly what I was looking for.

I believe that it was Domino's that provided this. Is it possible to use domino's with nUI? I know I'd have to manually setup my bars, but I'm wondering if they would sit "on top" of nUI's bars. I technically only really need one bar (dot's bar) to do this, but the option of having this built in, or friendly with domino's if that's the case, would be the only thing making me not like nUI......

Ok, I checked, and it is indeed Dominos. I can put it ontop of nUI's bars, but it would be nice if it just plain worked out of the box, or if there was a way to setup so that the bars in nUI could be disabled so that you can just plug in Dominos (or your choice of bars). Any thoughts?
