About Extra Bars

Important

I have recently uploaded the initial release for the successor (replacement) to Extra Bars called Button Forge. Button forge addresses several of the problems present in Extra Bars (such as Companions sometimes causing an error at first login, poor performance in certain scenerios etc), perhaps the biggest change is the ability to create as many or few bars and buttons as you choose. I encourage you to take a look:

http:wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/button-forge.aspx

Note: I have uploaded a v4.0.1 compatible version of Extra Bars now! (I only plan to provide basic support for this addon, but I will try to keep it operational for the time being... I may have a longer term plan if I find the time at a later date i.e. Extra Bars using the Button Forge engine which is a better engine)

(Both addons can operate side by side if you just want to give it a try)

Overview

Adds 4 extra action bars designed to work and look like the standard action bars. These bars are intended to complement your existing UI.

Features

  • 4 additional action bars are added which allow upto 12 buttons per bar
  • Designed to be quick and easy to configure
  • Does not change or alter the standard action bars in the game
  • Bars can be dragged anywhere on screen and orientated horizontally or vertically
  • Non actions can be dragged to the bar to allow counts of items
  • Should also be compatible with Bartender, Dominos, macaroon, etc...

Upcoming in v0.8

  • / command's for configuration
  • Option to fully hide faded gui control
  • 'Conditionals' for bar visibility (will allow bar to be shown/hidden during combat etc)
  • / command to change the strata level of each bar (controls if the bar will appear above or below other gui elements)

Instructions

  • These buttons work with the standard drag and drop of actions
  • A faint icon can be found at the top right corner of each bar, clicking this will provide some quick graphical options to configure the bar including a shortcut button to the bars configuration page
  • To change configuration settings go to the Interface->Addons->Extra Bar menu option
  • To bind keys to the buttons go to the 'Extra Bar' section of 'Key Bindings'

Known Issues

  • Macros with identical names may be switched around on the bar
  • Critters and Mounts do not darken if they cannot be used
  • Some spells/abilities may not have a fully updated display on the button (e.g. Hunter Aspects only ever show the skill icon, they don't change to a wisp icon when active)

Feedback

I appreciate feedback and comments you have. Free time to work on this addon is tight, but I will try to put priority behind any significant issues that crop up provided I can confirm them.

    Hi Terahrtz and Yuyake,

    The little square doesn't become fully invisible as it's intended as a quick access to adjust the bar (I can't make any promises as any dev focus at the moment I'm putting towards Button Forge, but maybe at a later date I can add an option to remove the little square??).

    Yukake were you refering to the same little config square?

  • #184

    I love it tyvm. The only thing bugging me is that they dont become invisible :) <3

  • #183

    Is it possible to remove the little square thingy that opens the confugration tab? It's quite annoying :S

  • #182

    Just an update - I have yet to replicate this issue in either Extra Bars or Button Forge.

    My first instinct is that another addon is possibly impacting Extra Bars, but I have tried several from the list posted below without issue... I'll keep looking at this (I've had 4 reports now), but if there is any extra info at all that could be provided that might help identify what the issue is.

    (A little detail about the error in case it gives any ideas):

    The line in question in ExtraBar.lua according to GermanHalo's stack trace below, simply calls       v:GetObjectType(), which is a common function on widgets so it would be strange for it not to be available as what I'm interpreting from the error.

    In the AlternateButtonTemplate the line that errored is simply asking the object what its name is GetName(), again another common function that should be on the object.

    Two explanations for these issues are that either those functions have been removed or replaced, or the objects are not ui controls (unfortunately both these scenerios are unlikely... I'll continue to plug away there might be some other things I've overlooked??)

    ===========

     I've been getting this error for about 2 days now! I can't click any of the extra bars when this error pops up and it's getting VERY frustrating! I've uninstalled the addon and reinstalled to see if it works and it still has the issue! Update plz!

  • #177

    can you add keybinds to those extra bars ? if its possible lemme know how and if not tell me if you know another addons please

  • #178

    You can indeed.

    Key bindings for Extra Bars are handled via the games built in key binding interface (there is a section for each of the extra bars that can be found near or at the very bottom of the keybindings list).

  • #174

    What version of this Addon does work for 3.3.5?

  • #176

    If you flick to the Other Downloads tab, you'll be able to see all past versions and which game client they work against. Although my focus will only ever be on the latest game client (and soon the MoP beta)

  • #173

    Ever since I updated from Extra Bars to the new with shapeshifting just a few days ago, nothing stays on my bars when I log or reload, except my mounts. It was working fine before. I'd been using the addon for awhile now. I don't know what changed but its not working.

  • #175

    "Extra Bars to the new with shapeshifting"

    Extra Bars doesn't have any specific functionality regarding shape shifting. I can't say for sure what could be causing the issue - I know at times players have had trouble with security settings for the wtf files used on their computer which can cause this sort of issue?

    There has also been some headaches specifically regarding macros, although I would expect the latest version to be less likely to encounter issues there if they were to occur?
