Select  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.4.12
by: Gello [More]

This addon adds the /select macro command you can use instead of /use or /cast to use an item or spell among a list. Right-clicking your macro from the bars will pop out a menu where you can change the item or spell to use.

This version works on Retail/Shadowlands, Classic Era and The Burning Crusade Clients clients.

How to Use

  • Create a macro with this line: /select item or spell, item or spell, etc
  • Drag the macro to your bars.
  • The first item or spell will be the default action when you hit the macro.
  • Right-click the macro to on your bars to change it to a different item or spell.

For instance, warriors may find this useful:
/select Battle Shout, Commanding Shout
When you create that macro it will cast Battle Shout every time it's hit. If you join a group with a death knight and want to use Commanding Shout instead, right-click the macro on your bars and choose Commanding Shout. Now the macro will display and cast Commanding Shout.

You can also embed the /select within a larger macro. For mages:
/focus [@focus,noexists][@focus,dead][mod:alt]
/select [@focus,exists][] Polymorph(Sheep), Polymorph(Turtle), Polymorph(Rabbit), Polymorph(Black Cat)
This is a standard focus-sheep macro. When you want to change what polymorph spell to use, right-click the macro on your bars and pick another. It will use that new polymorph until you decide to change it again.

You can also shorten the above macro by using a search:keyword to find all Polymorph variants:
/focus [@focus,noexists][@focus,dead][mod:alt]
/select [@focus,exists][] spell:Polymorph
Search:Keywords

To help add items and spells to your /select macros, search:keywords are usable in place of an item or spell name. These search through your bags and spellbooks to fill the flyout with items and spells that match the keyword(s).

The officially supported searches are:

item:id or partial name
Add an item by its item:id or all items in your bags or worn that contain the partial name.
Examples: item:1234, item:Bandage, item:Ore

spell:id or partial name
Add a spell by its numerical id or all spells that contain the partial name.
Examples: spell:1234, spell:Shout, spell:Polymorph

type:ItemType
Add all items that contain the keyword in one of its type fields. See www.wowpedia.com/ItemType for a full list.
Examples: type:Quest, type:Food, type:Herb, type:Leather

equipslot:slot
As with the /equipslot command, this lets you equip items into the given slot. See the in-game options for a table of slot numbers and what goes there.
Examples: equipslot:13, equipslot:19

The following works in the current modern version of WoW, but not the Classic Era or The Burning Crusade Classic clients:

mount:flying, land, favorite*, favflying*, favland* or partial name
Add all flying, land, favorite, favorite flying, favorite land mounts or mounts that contain the partial name.
Examples: mount:flying, mount:Raptor, mount:favflying

profession:primary, secondary, any or partial name
Adds all primary professions, secondary professions or any professions.
Examples: profession:Primary, profession:Any, profession:Herb

toy:favorite, any or partial name
Adds favorite toys, all toys or toys that contain the partial name.
Examples: toy:Crash, toy:favorite, toy:any

The following works in the Classic Era or The Burning Crusade Classic clients but not the modern version of WoW:

ranks:spell partial name
Adds all ranks of a spell in your spellbook that contain the partial name. (Remember to turn on the option Show Subtext on Spell Tooltips to ranks display in tooltips!)
Examples: ranks:Light Heal, ranks:Blessing, ranks:Curse

[condition] support

Just like /cast and /castsequence, /select can use [conditions]. Every [condition] used by the macro system is supported. Some examples:

/select [flyable] Name of flying mount, Another flying mount; Name of land mount
/select [@focus,exists][] spell:Polymorph
/select [combat] Master Healing Potion, Healthstone; [nocombat] item:Food & Drink
/select [spec:1] Conjured Mana Cake, Cobo Cola; Conjured Mana Cake, Frybread
/select [nopet] spell:Summon Demon; Grimoire of Sacrifice


Macro length "tax"

To do its magic, Select needs to add a line like this to all macros that contain a /select command:
/click [btn:2]S001M;S001A
It will do this on its own and it will recreate this line if it's accidentally deleted or altered. You don't need to worry about it except to remember that when writing your /select macros your macro needs at least 26 characters free for it to add this line (if it's not already there).

Limitations
  • Only the first /select in a macro will be recognized. Any others in the same macro will be ignored.
  • When you create or edit a macro in combat (you should be fighting!) it will wait until you leave combat to turn the macro on or make changes from your edit.
  • If you gain an item or spell that wasn't available as you entered combat, that item or spell won't be in the flyout until you leave combat.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What action bar addons does this support?
A: All of them! Default too, of course. If you can drop a Blizzard macro onto the button then Select should work with that button. However, if the macros are outside the game's standard macro slots, Select won't be aware of them.

Q: Can I add companion pets to /select?
A: Yes and no. There's a game limitation that prevent changing the icon easily. That said, pet:name, pet:favorite and pet:any work. But be aware it uses one icon for all pets.

Q: Can I change the order that items or spells list in the menu?
A: If you want certain items to list before others, add them manually. ie: /select x-51 nether-rocket x-treme, mount:flying will list the x-51 rocket first.

Q: Tyrael's Charger is missing from my land mounts!
A: Tyrael's Charger can fly so it's grouped with the flying mounts. But if you want to add it to your land mounts you can add it manually: /select tyrael's charger, mount:land

Q: Can you make the popout menu align to the action/macro button?
A: No, sorry. The secure methods to get the menu working in combat prohibits anchoring willy nilly.

- toc update for 3.4.1 patch

12/11/2022 version 3.4.7

11/15/2022 version 3.4.6
- toc update for 10.0.2 patch

11/12/2022 version 3.4.5
- More work on secure buttons to make them behave with ActionButtonUseKeyDown.
- The options 'Use Item Or Spell While Selecting', 'Use But Don't Select With <Alt>' and 'Use Item or Spell On Right Click' should now work if your ActionButtonUseKeyDown is 0 in Dragonflight clients.
- Note: On 10.0.2 Dragonflight clients, the /click line in macros requires two more characters to define whether the click is a down or up event to match your ActionButtonUseKeyDown setting. This is in addition to the prior two to pass a mouse button. This means if your macro was already pushing 255 characters, a couple character may be dropped at the end.

11/02/2022 version 3.4.4
- Workaround for Blizzard (yet again) changing how secure buttons work with ActionButtonUseKeyDown on 10.0.2 beta clients.

10/28/2022 version 3.4.3
- Workaround for Blizzard's bug in 10.0.0 clients where ActionButtonUseKeyDown cvar determines if a /click requires a button (this may require another update if they hotfix it before 10.0.2 patch)
- Fix for /select by itself not summoning options panel

10/25/2022 version 3.4.2
- Update for Dragonflight clients.
- Fix for 10.0.0 clients inability to use selection action.
- Note: For pre-patch clients (10.0.0), /select needs two more characters in a macro to do its thing. If your /select macros were 254+ characters, this will cut them short. In 10.0.2 the need for two extra characters may be going away.

10/19/2022 version 3.4.1
- Fix for Dragonflight beta clients (10.0.2) inability to use selected action.
- Known issue: Alt+click and right click of flyout buttons are behaving as an unmodified left click. This should be corrected soon.

10/04/2022 version 3.4.0
- Update for Dragonflight client support
- Beta/PTR users will need to load out of date addons for this to work until the Dragonflight Pre-Patch
- Added no:<search> filter to exclude items and spells added by previous filters. eg. /select toy:Hearthstone, no:Card will remove the Autographed Hearthstone Card from the flyout
- Select will be a bit more assertive on control of the icon for /select macros to fix issues with macro icons not updating
- Removed broken 'Don't Override #showtooltip' option
- Note: On Dragonflight clients, two more characters are needed for the macro length 'tax'. If your /select macros already hit the 255 macro length, they may not function as expected. Shadowlands and Classic clients should not be affected.

(If you've turned off the option Show Subtext on Spell Tooltips, you may want to turn it back on if you use this filter, so ranks display in the tooltips.)
- Updated interface options panel for the new ranks:search, made the retail-only (and new classic-only) notifications a different color to stand out, and renamed Retail to Modern clients.

09/24/2020 version 3.0.1
- Potential fix for issues caching toys on cold login and when new toys learned.

09/02/2020 version 3.0.0
Select has been completely rewritten. Changes include:
- This version supports Retail (8.3), Shadowlands (9.0) and Classic (1.13) clients. Elements that aren't available on Classic (such as mount:search, toy:search and profession:search) will not be loaded or enabled. Note: for Shadowlands beta/ptr or Classic clients, you'll need to load out of date addons.
- New filter equipslot:<slot> will allow you to select and equip items for the given slot. For instance: /select equipslot:13 will let you swap trinkets to the top trinket slot on a right-click of the macro, and use the top trinket on a left-click or keybind of the macro.
- You can choose which direction a flyout opens with flyout:<direction> in the macro. For instance /select equipslot:14, flyout:left will open a flyout to the left of the button containing the macro.
- To select items or spells with commas in their name, surround them with quotes, such as: /select Magic Rooster, 'Yulei, Daughter of Jade', Core Hound.
- Right click will select an item or spell from the flyout menu now.
- The /select command by itself will summon the options window.
- The options window has been updated to reflect new settings, filters and more information on usage.
- Added new option 'Use Flat Style' to display flyouts and their buttons in a flatter style.
- Added new option 'Show Subtext on Spell Tooltips'. When spells have a subtext such as Heal(Rank 1) or Polymorph(Turtle) it will add the subtext to tooltips. This is default enabled in Classic WoW where spell ranks play a greater role.
- Added new option 'Select Only Soulbound Equipslots' to not include bind-on-equip gear that you loot into select flyouts.
- Added new option 'Use Item Or Spell On Right Click' that will make right-clicks mimic the behavior of the Alt modifier, and use an item or spell as it's selected. Note: for equipslot:<slot>, selecting will always equip the item regardless of click or modifier.
- If the option 'Use But Don't Select with Alt' is enabled, this will also apply to the Right Click if 'Use With Right Click' is enabled.
- When units are involved in conditionals (out of range, invalid, etc), the macro should now reflect that unit during the condition (if the action button/bars supports this behavior) before the action is used.
- Items in the flyout now have a colored border to reflect their rarity, if applicable.
- Open flyouts can now be dismissed with the ESCape key (or whatever you've mapped to the game menu) while in combat.
- Passive spells will no longer show in spell:search filters (but you can add them separately to a /select if you still want them).
- When a filter:search is used, items and spells are added to the flyout in alphabetical order for that specific filter:search. For instance '/select Magic Rooster, type:Quest, spell:Portal' will add the Magic Rooster first, then all quest items sorted alphabetically, then all Portal spells sorted alphabetically last.
- Mounts found as the result of a mount:search that are not currently summonable will now add to flyouts, such as the Darkwater Skate that only works under water.
- Added new option 'Only Select Summonable Mounts' to remove these mounts that can't be currently summoned from mount:search flyouts.
- Flyout button creation is deferred until needed.
- Fix for some default flyout spells like spell:Polymorph only picking one spell.
- Removed the need to aggressively set attributes or build flyouts.
- Flyouts that cease to be used are no longer filled.

Notes for users of Select 2.x:
- Options like 'Use But Don't Select with Alt' will carry over from 2.x to 3.x.
- All existing /select macros should continue to work without change.
- After updating from 2.x to 3.x, the initial loaded selection from every flyout will reset to the first available item or spell across all characters. This one-time reset is due way selected items and spells are saved.
- If you're updating this manually, you will need to exit the game completely before updating. There are new files that won't be recognized if added while logged into the game.
- This version has considerably changed the files/folders in the Select addon folder. If you feel comfortable doing it, you can delete the old one before installing this. But the old files are harmless if they remain, they will not be loaded. Auto-updating clients may possibly do this for you too.

Maybe it's related to that?
That would definitely do it. Thanks for testing.

If you turned off ActionButtonUseKeyDown (/console ActionButtonUseKeyDown 0)--and no addon switched it back--then /clicks would only work when the key is released and would probably work when buttons are unlocked. If ActionButtonUseKeyDown is enabled (/console ActionButtonUseKeyDown 1) then /clicks only work when they key goes down.

Blizzard has sort of broken secure buttons. If your ActionButtonUseKeyDown is 1, then you need the X 1 (technically X should be LeftButton but X 1 is already too many macro characters taken up); if it's 0 you don't need anything. And some addons out there are setting ActionButtonUseKeyDown to their own preferred value. To date none of my addons set a cvar. imho that's something the user should choose and not an addon unless it's designed to change cvars.

So stuff is kind of broken and I'm waiting for Blizzard to fix stuff on their end too.
So I just tried this again:
- Logged in with Bartender enabled, started combat, cannot left-click any Select button, but can right-click and the flyout pops up.
- Shadowmeld to leave combat, disable Bartender.
- Start combat with Blizzard bars, can left-click Select button.
- Reenabled Bartender, same behaviour as before.
- Created new profile in Bartender, left-click works!
- First difference in the settings I noticed was that my default profile had "Button Lock" disabled (i.e., I could move buttons on/off the bars) compared to the new profile where it was enabled.
- Enabled "Button Lock" in default profile, left-click works in combat!

So it seems that the Select buttons do not work (for me?) when buttons are unlocked.
Not sure what is going on there, but there is some hint on the setting in Bartender:

"NOTE: When the buttons are unlocked, actions will always trigger on key release, instead of key press"

Maybe it's related to that?

Anyway, thanks for confirming it was an issue on my end, so that I was able to find the culprit

I tried different macros, e.g.,
I installed the Bartender 4 (4.14.3) and tested and everything seemed to be working in combat for me. I'm afraid I don't know what the problem could be.

Is it always unresponsive in combat? If so, do you use a total UI like ElvUI, or a bar addon, or default bars?

#showtooltip
/select toy:Katy, toy:favorite, no:jiggle
/click [btn:2]S022M;S022A X 1

I don't believe there is a way presently beyond using the no:jiggle to drop the extra ones. I need to review how toys are handled and I'll make sure "favorite" matches just toys marked favorite.
Oh, didn't know about "no:", that's good enough for me Thanks!

I'll take a look this week. It should show the headslot item last selected.

In the meantime, you may find this useful to swap/use items by slot:

/select equipslot:1

where 1 is the inventory slot (4 for shirt, 16 for mainhand weapon, 13/14 for trinkets, etc.) Rather than selecting and then clicking to equip, equipslot:<slot> will equip the item as it's selected.
That's probably a smarter way to do it thanks.

Select Icon

Is there some fuzziness about how it decides icon to use on selected item?

This is on Wrath Classic prepatch but I think it's been happening for me for a while.

I have a select macro with
Code:
/select [nocombat]type:INVTYPE_HE
It properly shows only Headslot items on the menu, works perfectly.

But the icon and tooltip often shows me a random Handslot item.

Oh I see. Interesting idea, I'll think on it.

There is not a way to select items with a use effect. It may be interesting to add though I'm not sure yet what keyword it'd be. Maybe type:use? We'll see.

In Blizzard's macro language, [something,something] is an 'and' and [something][something] is an 'or'.
Thanks for the replies.
I should have made myself more clear

I meant in select's part of the macro. For a use case.
If I want to add a bunch of items to the menu I'd do
Code:
/select item:id1,item:id2,item:id3
I know you already replied there is no generic use: search pattern, but imagine a
Code:
/select type:quest;type:use
(where semicolon is used to denote AND "quest item that has a use effect" instead of "quest items OR items with a use effect" if that makes sense.
