    Your original post made it sound like you just wanted a bar for yourself, not for the entire raid, which is what sending it as a sync message will do.


    Ah - I thought I had made it clear when I originally posted quoting the /bwcb command that this is what I was intending to emulate. I know others have used this macro command for this purpose, but for myself I was attempting to do it in such a way that I didn't fire spurious bars should I accidentally hit the macro while LS was on cooldown.

    As for whether or not it is desirable, I tend to raid within a fixed set of people, most of whom have been in favour of the bar; many of them are reluctant (I'd hate to use the word "fearful"...) about installing addons beyond the "mandated" few our guild prescribe. I tend to be RL and MT, so I like to let everyone know when I hit the panic buttons.

    As an additional note, since quoting the macro above (and before reading your reply), I did add an "if 1==1" clause to the bar code to enable me to quickly and easily disable the synch should anyone object. I'll run with it for a while and see how people go.

    And to be perfectly honest, I would probably have just given up (partly for the reasons you gave), but once I had the idea, I hated to abandon it simply due to failure; I'm a typical geek in that I needed to solve the problem more than I needed the solution ;-)

    Thanks again,

    Bob.

    Hi again,

    Umm, I don't think you really want to send that as a sync?


    Pretend ( ;-) ) I'm a complete noob to this stuff and elaborate why not? I wrote it this way so as to emulate as closely as possible the /bwcb slashcommand. But I'm not a lua developer - just a programmer trying to hack something in place with a minimal knowledge of the basics. The macro seemed to perform correctly on tonight's raid. Is there a technical reason that it is wrong?

    BigWigs_CommonAuras shows that eh?

    That will only show it to people with BW_CA installed (as I understand it). My intention was to push the bar out to anyone with vanilla BW installed through the existing custom bar functionality.

    Thanks again,

    Bob.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply - I wasn't far off it turns out.

    In case you're interested, the macro I ended up with was the following:

    #showtooltip Last Stand
    /use Offering of Sacrifice
    /cast Last Stand
    /run s,d,e = GetSpellCooldown("Last Stand") if s == 0 then b = BigWigs:GetModule("Custom Bars") b:TriggerEvent("BigWigs_SendSync", "BWCustomBar 20 Last Stand!") end


    Thanks again, and all the best,

    Bob.

    Hi,

    I posted on the curse comment board without realising that this forum existed, so please pardon the cross-post.

    I was wondering if it is possible to access the /bwcb functionality from within a macro /run statement? Essentially I am trying to write a macro that will create a custom bar based on a conditional that cannot be expressed purely through macro options.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Bob.
