Let's assume you already have a bar called "Skills Display", which shows your skills when they are off cooldown. (See the right side of the image below.) It has the following slots:
  1. Conditional: "If effect is not present: Defiant Challenge"
  2. Conditional: "If skill is ready: Defiant Challenge"
  3. Skill: Defiant Challenge
  4. End of conditional
  5. End of conditional
So, the "Defiant Challenge" icon will only appear when the "Defiant Challenge" effect is absent, and the "Defiant Challenge" skill is ready (i.e. off cooldown).



The only problem is, the conditionals are only evaluated when you click on the skill. Instead, you can force the conditionals to be evaluated continuously. To do so, you need the bar to reset continuously. Here's how to make it happen:
  1. Create a new bar, called "Ticker". (See the left side of the image above.)
  2. Add a special slot to it: Generate User Event.
    • Set the event name to "Tick".
    • Under "Activation", choose "Automatic".
  3. In the right-click menu for the "Ticker" bar:
    • Choose Settings -> Run continuously.
    • Choose Event Behaviours -> Enable.
    • Choose Event Behaviours -> Add behaviour -> Start executing -> at startup.
  4. Start executing the "Ticker" by clicking the gear icon.
  5. Right-click "Ticker", choose "Hide".
Now, you are generating a continuous stream of "Tick" events. Next, you need to make the "Skills Display" bar respond to the "Tick" event:
  • In the right-click menu for the "Skills Display" bar:
    • Choose Event Behaviours -> Enable.
    • Choose Event Behaviours -> Add behavior -> Reset bar -> When user event occurs -> Tick.
    • (Optional, but recommended) Choose Settings -> Animation -> Instantaneous

I didn't know that was possible, thank you so much. And thanks for the offer with the screencaps, that would most definitely help me. And I will also take a deep look at the video once the game is up.

Hearing that it's possible makes me really happy

Thanks for the translation, but my response is the same. ;-)

You can do what you are requesting, by using a continuously-executing bar that is generating a constant stream of "tick" events. The other bar uses that "tick" event to reset itself and reevaluate its conditionals.

The game is down right now, but later I will login and make some example screencaps.

Oh, I apologize, I assumed you were German. Then let me rephrase everything in English.

First of all, thank you for your hard work but I have a question.

Since Lotro doesn't have something like Weakauras I want to use your addon to display the cooldowns of my spells.

What I want is that "skill A, Skill B etc." disappear from the bar/become invisible, if they are on cooldown and only become visible again once the cooldown is finished.

I know this is possible (via else/If, or at least you can display another texture, not really full transparancy so I'd be thankful for a tip here as well), if I use your addon the way it was intended to be used (as a clicker), the thing is, though, that I activate my spells via the hotkeys of my keyboard (1,2,3; CTRL+1, CTR+2 etc.)

Due to that the event doesn't get triggered and the bar doesn't move sequentially to the left if you will which is why the Icon never disappears/fades out.

Is it possible to make the icon fully transparent/invisible if I don't click but instead use my keyboard to activate my spells?

I hope, you understand what I mean. I also made a picture to make it easier to understand:

https://imgur.com/a/F3ev1


What I essentially would like to do, is that each icon is hidden for the duration of the cooldown, without the bar actually moving (so current behaviour if you use the keyboard) and without having to click (since that only seems to trigger the "If/else" functions) but instead via the use of my keyboard hotkeys and not just through the use of mouse clicks.

If this isn't possible, maybe because keystrokes aren't really called up/captured, would it be possible to implement it at least for the CD? I'd gladly donate some money for that, just pm me for further info/your thoughts - I am sure we can work something out.

Because your addon seems to be extremly powerful (like I said, Weakauras of Lotro if you will) but currently is only really interesting for clickers which is a bit sad considering how many possibilieties it offers. So if it would be possible to basically attach the same functions (all the IF/Else functions like moral, wrath, debuff etc.), that would be phenomenal.

If that would be too much work, I'd be happy with just the CD function and like I said, you can gladly PM me in terms of donation.

Paradoxic,

My German is very rudimentary, but I think I understood the essence of your problem. This video should help. It is in English, but the subtitles are very complete, so the auto-translation feature should work OK.

Basically, you need two bars:
  1. A bar that runs continuously (ausführen kontinuierlich), generating a user event (benutzerdefiniertes Ereignis erstellen).
  2. A bar (containing conditionals) that automatically resets when the user event is received (Leiste zurücksetzen bei Eintreten eines benutzerdefinierten Ereignisses).
Best regards,
Thurallor

Hallo,
erst einmal vielen Dank für deine harte Arbeit, ich hätte jedoch eine Frage.

Da Lotro kein Addon wie "Weakauras" oder ähnliches besitzt, möchte ich dein Addon dafür nutzen, um mir Skillcooldowns anzeigen zu lassen.

Was ich möchte, ist das Skill A von der Leiste verschwindet/unsichtbar wird, wenn er auf Cooldown ist und erst wieder erscheint, wenn der Cooldown abgelaufen ist.

Nun ist dies möglich (über else/if und zumindest das Anzeigen einer anderen Textur möglich, nicht unbedingt ein Ausblenden/Transparenz - wäre also auch hier über nen Tipp dankbar), wenn ich dein Addon für den vorgesehenen Zweck einsetze (klicken), jedoch aktiviere ich Spells klassisch über meine Tastatur (1,2,3,4; STRG+1, STRG+2 etc.)

Dadurch wird das Event nicht getriggert und die Leiste "bewegt" sich sozusagen nicht sequenziell, weswegen das Icon nie ausgeblendet wird.

Ist es irgendwie möglich, die Icons unsichtbar zu machen, wenn ich nicht klicke, sondern die Tastatur fürs Spell-auslösen nutze?

Ich hoffe, du verstehst, was ich meine.

Ich habe hier auch nochmal ein Foto angehangen:

https://imgur.com/a/F3ev1

Ich möchte sozusagen, dass einzelne Icons für die Dauer des Cooldowns ausgeblendet werden, ohne das sich die Leiste bewegt und ohne dass ich tatsächlich klicken muss, so wie es aktuell noch von Nöten ist, damit die Else/If Funktion nutzbar ist.

Sofern dies nicht implementiert ist und nicht geht, da möglicherweise Tastatureingaben, die die Spells auslösen, nicht abgefragt werden oder so, wäre ich auch gern bereit etwas Spendengeld da zu lassen, wenn es möglich wäre, dies zu implementieren Schreib mir dann ne PM mit deiner Vorstellung.

Dein Addon scheint nämlich recht mächtig zu sein, was fantastisch ist, doch scheint zumindest in der aktuellen Iteration vor allem für Clicker interessant zu sein, was keine Kritik ist, da du es ja dafür entwickelt hast, doch auch ein wenig schade ist, da es das "Weakauras" für Lotro sein könnte, wenn das Addon auch mit der Tastatur in Verbindung gebracht werden könnte.

Wenn sozusagen alle Abfragen (wrath, debuff, moral etc., also alles in der "IF" Funktion), nicht nur CDs, auch mit Tastatureingaben assoziert werden könnten, wäre das natürlich der ultimative Traum - deswegen nochmal mein Hinweis auf die PM

Hi Bigdid,
Quote:
I had to reinstall Win10; so I copy/pasted various things from the old HD. Problem is when I could launch LOTRO again, I do not have the last config for SB but one from more than 1 month ago (used this pc/documents/LOTRO/plugins etc...)
I think I remember the plugin does an autosave? at what place on the HD?
or is there something else I am missing?
SequenceBars doesn't make any backups, sorry.

For each character, there is a settings file:
Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/PluginData/<account>/<server>/<character>/SequenceBars.plugindata
and for each account, there is a file for collecting information on effects:
Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/PluginData/<account>/AllServers/Thurallor_GameInfo.plugindata
The latter is not strictly necessary; it will get rebuilt automatically if you delete it. It collects information about effects that it sees on your character or your target, to make a list of effects that you can select for conditional slots.

With this settings, when I put special slot( like If...then) at 1st slot, bars always appear below cursor.
Could you fix that?
Hi m09,

I tried, but was not able to reproduce the problem. Can you export your bar and send it to me in a PM?

Thanks,
Thurallor
