[AddOn] RingMenu

[AddOn] RingMenu

RingMenu
This AddOn provides an additional circular action bar that normally remains hidden but can be summoned by a click of a (mouse) button.

The RingMenu is hence ideal for storing away action buttons that are frequently used yet need not be present on the screen at all times (e.g. trade skills, tracking spells, hearthstone, etc.).


Setup
Before first use, you need to set up a button to summon / dismiss the RingMenu anywhere on the screen. Go to
Main Menu > Key Bindings > RingMenu > Open / Close RingMenu
and choose an appropriate button. This can be any keyboard or mouse button, e.g. the middle mouse button.

Open the RingMenu by clicking the summon button anywhere on the screen. You can now drag and drop actions to the slots of the RingMenu like for a regular action bar.


Configuration
Open the settings window by typing /ringmenu.

Using the First Button Slot and Number of Buttons settings, you can adjust the range of action button slots that are used for the RingMenu. Depending on your class, some button slot ranges might be already in use for shapeshift forms. Use this list to pick an appropriate range.

Further configuration options include the radius and angle of the RingMenu as well as the color of the transparent backdrop.

Just wanted to say this looks like a real neat addon. Been leveling a hunter and could use this to store all those hunter/pet actions I don't use that often. Surprised to not see anyone else comment on this. Gonna try it tonight when I get home from work

I'm going to give this a shot tonight, I like the idea and want to see how well it works in practice

***UPDATE***
I truly enjoy this addon, it is perfect for professions and consumables and less used macros!

Forgot to come back and here and mentioned I tested this addon. I honestly really like it. While I could simply just place my profession skills on a side bar its nice to just click a button and have it appear right next to wherever my cursor may be. The way the bar appears and disappears seems so fluid too. So all in all, works great!

Looks very useful and well done. Will try it out and pass the word :)

Edit : I'm in love. Always wanted to visually get rid of those buttons and have them available quickly whenever I want. Thank you very much. :roll:

Hello jsb,

Thanks for this neat addon. Very useful for non-keybinded actions that you still want to access fast like professions and consumables.

Would it be possible to make it compatible with cyCircled so users can customize the borders of the action buttons? cyCircled already has plugin files for other addons like Bartender2, Bongos, etc. Would be cool if you could create a plugin file for RingMenu aswell!

Cheers
