this question applies to all addons with slash commands, but i'll use vuhdo as my example.

is it possible to make a macro to use "/vuhdo show" and "/vuhdo hide" to toggle between the two or possibly left click/right click, and then if that is, could a modifier be used to use "/vuhdo options" with shift?

i only know how do these things with /cast and /use type macros, and i despise all minimap buttons, but some addon are a hassle to operate any other way

thank you!

Hey man,

try this out, reply if it works for you...
If it works, left click should show and right click should hide

/vuhdo show
/stopmacro [nobtn:2]
/vuhdo hide

As stated, macros confuse me to no end. Hopefully this makes sense though. In the above macro you indicate the left and right click of the mouse would then show or hide the addon. Cool. How do you go back to having the mouse buttons assume "normal" functions? Also, since I am a mouse button addict and use them for the functions they now have, is there a way to put this macro to use with the 1 and 2 number pad keys? Thank you in advance.

The left and right buttons ONLY are different when clicked on for that macro's button (aka, its not a keybinding). So, "normal" functionality is still retained. To use with different keys instead of different mouse buttons, you really couldn't do it as a macro. However, keybinding would be quite possible and something like bindpad would make it much easier.
