Flexbar2's development is back up and it's turning out a lot like Infinibar, minus the memory leak :P It still has a bunch of work left, grouping, a few commands, there are still some bugs going on, but there is a crazy amount of development going on daily. And yeah, it runs with the default blizzui.

Jun 21, 2007Try downloading it again, it fixed my problem when it was incompatible. You may have to delete the current folder in the addons folder before re-downloading.Posted in: General AddOns
What exactly is focus?
I've had a problem where bars don't pop up, but just with my pet bar in the Nagrand Arena. I used to use the default blizzard one, it wouldn't show, so now I have the infinibar petbar dragged above the chat box, I'm honestly not sure if it even appears in that arena, I just use key bindings for the pet.
May 18, 2007Hey, you have an awesome addon, been using it for a couple of weeks and I love it, I just have a few suggestions.Posted in: General AddOns
-Any chance you can allow binding two keys to the same button?
-While I'm on bindings, it's impossible to bind the numberpad 5 if Numlock isn't on.
-Any chance you can allow circle-grouping like Flexbar used to have? (for seven buttons that is) The closest I was able to get to this was making a 7-button group, with the circle configuration set to 6 buttons per circle with a starting radius of 37, and radius spacing of -37. The problem is they stay too clumped up like this (there's overlap on the buttons) and any more spacing makes the circle split into two semi-circles.
-By any chance can you add a "lock all button content" and "unlock all button content" option? A couple of times now I've been messing with profiles, accidentally clear my screen, load my profile back only to see 59 empty, locked buttons, needless to say I've spent the greater part of many a kara spamming frostbolts mindlessly as I focus most of my attention to redoing my UI and its binds :P
-You say it uses low memory... but there's something about it, maybe the fact that since I have to make the circles I mentioned earlier manually (columns of 2s and 3s) so I have 25 groups of buttons in total, or maybe just a memory leak going on or something, I don't know. Either way, using a myriad of other addons in the background (Titan, Lootlink, Enemy Cast Bars, etc.) the game now runs choppy when I'm in the middle of the group of 40 people in Alterac Valley (and last night in Kara while killing the curator trash, the big aoe pulls.) On the other hand, back with Bongos the game ran fine. Just wondering if anything can be done about that. The version I have is probably two weeks old, should I try getting a new one?
-OH MOST IMPORTANTLY I nearly forgot: Hiding/Showing buttons based on combat and all of that is excellent, but another really useful thing Flexbar had which I'd love to see on infinibar is if buttons could be shown only when the mouse goes over them (or their entire group for that matter.) As a mage this was a really nice option because it allowed me to keep my screen free of Teleports/Portals/Buffs/Conjures until I actually wanted to use them. As an engineer it was also pretty useful because it allowed me to have a button up for each trinket in my backpack, and I'd keep them hidden until I wanted to equip one, in which case I'd click it, then drag it to the two trinket-buttons I always had displayed. I'm no longer an engineer, but it might be an option engineers would still like to have.
Oh and one last thing I just remembered :P Clicking on a trinket's button if it's unequipped won't equip it. Some other addons allow this (as do blizzard's default actionbars I believe.) Just though you should know about this.
Well yeah, with all these feature requests, it may not look like it, but I seriously do love Infinibar :P It's the first UI addon since flexbar that has actually allowed me to customize the UI the way I want (most restrict you to set groups of 12x1, 6x2, etc. And most also wipe out the default blizzard toolbar at the bottom, with the gryphons, the nice bars, the xp bar, etc.) Infinibar is really innovative, congratulations on an excellent idea and excellent implementation.
