When I set the columns to a number less than 12, it creates multiple rows of buttons. Is there a way to just have it truncate the row instead of creating multiple rows? Or is that a feature you don't want to support?
ie I'd like bar1 to have 8 buttons, bar2 to have 8 buttons, etc. Yes I can leave buttons 9-12 blank but it creates strata issues if I start stacking bars on top of each other.
Nr of buttons per bar is something I was planning to add but didn't get round to. The columns feature was for making "boxes" of buttons (ie 2 x 6, 3 x 4 etc). I'll think of adding variable nr of buttons per bar.
Stance switching for rogues & warriors is in and working in the TBC version. The current implementation for setting hotkeys is screwy from a user interface point of view, but it works (set the keybinding in the default keybinding UI; although it doesn't seem to stick, it works). Next up is fixing the pet bar. After that I'll think about a better keybinding way and implement some of the requests.
For those few still interested in this now that BT3 is working... :)
I managed to make keybindings suck less, I also managed to reuse the Blizzard buttons for the 4 extra bars. This means that AckBar is now more lightweight than it was in 1.12.
However, the Blizzard buttons in the beta code right now are not meant to be reused. This results in AckBar getting a lot of ADDON_BLOCKED events and there's nothing I can do about it -- except do as nevcairiel did and rewrite the whole button code. But when I do that AckBar wouldn't really differ from BT3 anyway.
So, there are some updates to the Blizzard buttons coming in the next beta push. I've got hope that that will make reuse of their code easier. In the meantime, AckBar TBC is "working" if you ignore the ADDON_BLOCKED spam that it generates (BugSack makes that pretty easy ;-)
In summary: until Blizzard rewrites a few things, don't count on AckBar working 100% come TBC. For those wanting a fully functional action bar mod for PTR/Beta right now, go use BT3.
I will probably abandon this project if at the release of the expansion the Blizzard code still isn't reusable, as there's no point in duplicating efforts; the only reason for AckBar's existance right now is that it aims to reuse as much Blizzard code as possible.
I know this thread is kinda dead now, but I came across the addon and have to say I hope there is still a little life left in it. I really dont want something as huge as BT3 and I like the idea of keeping the main bar and the art...
