MagnetButtons  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.8.18
by: Nightness [More]

Description

MagnetButtons is an addon that can create any number of free moving action buttons. Any MagnetButton can be individually moved around (anywhere) on the screen, and will also "magnetically-lock" to any side of another MagnetButton. MagnetButtons is being designed to not only work on it's own, but also to be used by other addons via a script API (documentation coming soon).

MagnetButtons supports items, spells, trinkets, macros, and toys. Support for mounts, companions, fly-outs, and inline macro's (macro text not saved any place except in the button) will happen soon.

MagnetButtons is also available on CurseForge and Twitch. But only stable versions will be placed there, I upload everything here. If the addon seems stable after a couple of days, then I'll put it on Twitch.


Creating Buttons

You can create buttons automatically by dropping drags right on to the UIParent window (the background) while holding the shift button down.

Slash Commands: /newb (new empty button)

Note: There is also a keyboard binding available for the /newb command.


Manipulating Buttons

Buttons can be changed at anytime by using them as a drop target.

Press Control+LeftClick (over the button) to display a button's properties frame; allowing you to change the scale, set targets, or delete the button.

Press Shift+LeftClick (over the button) to drag the button around.

Pressing the "Alt" key over a button will act normally (self-cast).


Targeting

MagnetButtons supports using specific targets for a button. Unit targets can be set in the button's properties. Valid values for unit targets can be found here.


Future Plans

  • Start using CurseForge and Twitch as other ways to deploy the addon
  • Full support for all the bell's and whistles of other buttons (range dots, border flash, sparkle when cool-down expires, etc...)
  • Add conditional display for buttons, so only want a button to appear in raids or a battleground, that is the only time it's displayed.
  • Icon customization without the need to create a macro.
  • Moving buttons as a block of buttons
  • Pimp out the properties dialog to fully take advantage of all features of Blizzard's secure button template.
  • Documented API for other addons to use.
  • Masque theme/skinning support

I'm also hammering out the details on pet buttons, you would be surprised about how out of date the wiki's are. I'll update what I notice.
