    ButtonFacade seems to break Bartender.



    Did you update ButtonFacade?

    add a [bonusbar:5]11; in front of your other custom states, and it'll do possess switching ;)



    Perfect. Thank you once again.

    Thank you for the help with setting up the custom states. Worked like a charm once I swapped out a few numbers to refer to what I needed.

    Now I need to set up bar 1 to act as a possess bar. I should have foreseen this being a problem, but I just hadn't thought much about it until last night when I was in Ulduar and everyone was wondering why I was just sitting there while everyone else was tearing off to take out FL. (Luckily, I thought quickly enough to turn off the custom conditionals and turned them back on after the fight.)

    BT4 does use Ace 3, but so do probably half the addons you get through Curse. Are you getting severe memory leaks or very high memory usage currently? I use a lot of addons, but my memory usage is only 15-17MB while playing.

    The latest version of Ace3 through the Curse Client is r886, if you have "alpha" enabled for downloads. Are you running a release version of Ace3 perhaps?


    Game time expired this morning, and I had to work all day so I never got a chance to go buy a timecard so I can't check for sure, but if I remember correctly, my memory usage is running in the 30-40meg range. Which is way up from a couple of weeks ago... but a couple of weeks ago I was running maybe half the addons I am now, so that's not totally surprising.

    Just set Curse Client to install alphas... or should I leave it on "release"? Or for that matter, would beta be the best middle-ground?

    And what was the official word on needing Ace3 installed and running? Is it essential to the operation of these addons, or just their development?


    And I would just like to say, once again, thank you to everyone helping me out. :)

    Hope you understand how it works, but well if you don't, you can still get it to work :)


    I'm pretty sure I understand it. Basically, all you're telling the addon is that if the actionbar is supposed to be displaying bar 2, for example, it should display bar 3 instead. The fact that I will be using the mousewheel to scroll through is irrelevant since all it would be concerned with is WHAT it is showing not WHY, correct?

    As I've been getting more into addons and macroing over the last couple of weeks, a lot of this stuff is making a lot more sense to me, it is usually just a question of learning the syntax. Thank you very much for explaining it in a clear and concise manner.

    Oh, and I was switching off some addons last night and I noticed that Ace3 had been installed. I assume it was packaged with another addon, and looking at the list of your projects I am wondering if it was installed alongside Bartender4 (I use the Curse client for addon installation). Would there be any harm in disabling it? I like to disable any addons and modules for addons that I am not using... and I am getting LUA errors (that's what they're called, right) concerning Ace3 when I attempt to submit a GM Ticket.

    if you look at the "state configuration" tab of the bar you want to change (bar 1) you will find a section marked "modifier based switching". you can set the "shift" paging to page 2 and not have to use the scroll bar. right above that is the "stance configuration" section where you should have "page 3" set for stealth. you can use similar settings for the other bars you want to change


    Oh, I know about the modifier based switching, but that would be awkward and a bit of a pain to hold down the SHIFT key for an entire boss fight. Also, a few of my abilities are keybound to SHIFT+xx. I have certain abilities macroed to use trinkets (for example) and such for bossfights, and would like to scroll to an ability set that doesn't for when I'm out doing some world PvE or fighting raid trash.

    As for stealth (stance) sets, I have those set up just fine.

    Thank you for the help, however! I appreciate the answers.

    Okay, lemme try to explain my problem here... I'm going to take it step by step to make sure it's as clear as possible.

    I have three action bars on my screen.

    I have them all set to page to another bar when I stealth. This works fine.

    I would like to be able to use the SHIFT+mousewheel scrolling to page each bar to another bar, so that I can scroll over to a slightly different ability set for boss fights.

    I set my bars up on the screen like this to get my abilities set up and make sure I had everything corresponding to the correct bars. After getting everything set up, I would turn the secondary bars off so they would only appear when I activate them (i.e. stealth, SHIFT+mousewheel).

    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 1
    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 2, I want to scroll to this from Bar 1
    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 3, it is the stealth set for Bar 1

    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 4
    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 5, I want to scroll to this from Bar 4
    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 6, it is the stealth set for Bar 4

    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 7
    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 8, I want to scroll to this from Bar 7
    OOOOOOOOOOOO <- This is Bar 9, it is the stealth set for Bar 7

    The problem I am running into is that when I scroll to another set of bars, all three bars (1, 4 & 7) scroll to the same bar, Bar 2. (Continuing to scroll leads me through Bars 3 to 5 and then to their original bars.) I would like for each bar to scroll down one level ( 1->2, 4->5, 7->8 ), each separate from the other.

    Am I making any sense? I know it probably sounds a little weird without seeing my screen, which is why I tried to provide a bit of a diagram above.

    I appreciate any help you can provide!

    ADDITIONAL: While I have you all here, I might as well ask what "Default Bar State" is referring to. No matter what I do, SHIFT+mousewheel, stealthing, whatever, it makes no impact on how my bars act unless I choose another bar (page) from the list, which makes me wonder why you wouldn't just use the other bar in the first place. I feel there has to be a use for this feature that I'm just not understanding.
