nUI has a built in ability to create vertical health and power bars as well as horizontal... plus the bars can all grow from left to right, right to left, top to bottom, bottom to top or outside to center.

He is using the ability to do vertical bars that grow from the bottom. Look at the ["Health"] section in the [ Interface > nUI > Layouts > HUDLayouts > {hud mode} > nUI_HUDSkin_{hud mode}_Player.lua ] configuration file for an example of how it is done. Pay attention to the bar = {} section in particular. The orient = "BOTTOM" option means that the bar grows vertically up from the bottom of the bar. The texture and overlay fields are the graphics used to display the bar background and "transparent" overlay, respectively. The min_offset and max_offset specify how from from the bottom of the graphic the actual bar starts and ends.

So, I presume he created a custom graphic to replace the one that I created for the HUD and then changed the min and max offsets them moved the bars down closer to the dashboard.

HUD vertical bars

HI Sciloh,

I didnt realise you could do that in code, Spiel

So I was lazy and downloaded plugin
nUI_TidyNeon_Hud

Then manipulated code to suit the look I wanted fatter HP bar etc..
Then used /nui hud vofs -300 or -400 to move down screen
It only works in Player/Target HUD option tho.

If you want my code variations let me know but probably good idea to look at Spiel's in nUI suggestion ... I will be .... one less addon
And may be able to get it to work across all HUD display options.

Cheers again Spiel

Thanks, its not actually nUI though, i got bored last night, its actually kgPanels, IceHud, Shadowed Unit Frames and Bartender 4 took me a few hours to get it like that.

Would you be able to release a list of the addons used and a compressed WTF folder (removing any un-needed files, just include the ones that get it looks like screenshot), once you have the rep/XP bars added ?

Also, in the screenshot, I don't see the bag/minimap button holder icons.

yeah I could do that, give me a couple of day im going to have to redownload the addons i used and get it setup right.

As to the questions about the bag/minimap button holder, i chose to to include those as i just press B to open my bags so i dont need a button for that and i use Titan and most of my addons can utilize that.

OK, thank you.

I also use Titan panel, so the bag/minimap button bag icons are not really needed by myself either.

I'm guessing the game calendar can be accessed via another route then (as usually shows in minimap button bag).
