i thought the newest version of bartender allowed you to use the default vehicle bar


either way, if you select the bar you want keybound to your vehicle, lets say that bar has all keys bound '1' through '=' (top of the keyboard). Just select that bar in your Bartender config, and click the tab that says State Configuration. There is a checkbox to make that bar switch to Vehicle assignments when in a vehicle

Not for kgPanels.

You'll need to register for the proper events in your OnLoad script, and in the OnEvent, tell whether to hide or show accordingly.

Alternately, you can parent your textures to the bartender bar/button, if they have altered frame names from the default UI.

The events are

Code:
Panel1:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, ...)
if event == "UNIT_ENTERED_VEHICLE" then
  -- some kg panel command here to hide
else
   -- some kg panel command here to show
end


Panel1:RegisterEvent('UNIT_ENTERED_VEHICLE')
Panel1:RegisterEvent('UNIT_EXITED_VEHICLE')
than something like this should work

If i understood Seerah right

Setting the parent of the frames to hide to UIParent should work, too.

UIParent doesn't hide when you enter a vehicle.

In the beginning I had a bug in ProcWatch that it did not hide when entering
a vehicle or switching to fullscreen. After changing the main frames parent to
UIParent the problem was gone ... so I thought this was related.

Yep your right. For every panel set OnLoad:
Code:
self:RegisterEvent('UNIT_ENTERED_VEHICLE')
self:RegisterEvent('UNIT_EXITED_VEHICLE')
and in OnEvent:
Code:
if event == "UNIT_ENTERED_VEHICLE" then
 self:Hide()
else
 self:Show()
end

end
Sorry to necro this post, but I was just recently testing this as my custom kg panels were having the same issue. I wanted to say Garual's code works fine, but it also makes it so the panels would hide on EVERY unit (party or raid member) entering the vehicleUI state, not only the player.

Do you guys know how to make it so it only hides the panels on PLAYER vehicle ui?

Thanks, and sorry again.

Instead of self:RegisterEvent use self:RegisterUnitEvent('UNIT_ENTERED_VEHICLE', 'player') etc

To clarify, this is due to a change in the API in the last 8+ years.
