Ace3 conversion of the original MyBags addon (

The original description:

MyBags is a replacement to the default interface's Inventory and Bank features. It replaces smaller individual frames and places them into a larger frame showing all your inventory or bank slots.

It is really four addons in one, MyInventory, MyEquipment, MyBank, and MyBagsCache. Each addon can be disabled entirely if you don't wish to have the features of it.

In the MyBags Folder there are four folders:
MyBagsCore: This is for things common to both MyInventory and MyBank
MyBank: This is for things specific to MyBank. Remove this folder to disable MyBank
MyInventory: This is for things specific to MyInventory. Remove this folder to disable MyInventory
MyEquipment: This is for things specific to MyEquipment. Remove this folder to disable MyEquipment

MyBagsCache: This saves your inventory and bank items for offline viewing.
**note**: DISABLE MyBagsCache IF you don't wish to have offline (or away from bank) viewing (it will bloat your saved vars)

* Toggle to completely replace default UI. MyBags can be used with or instead of the default UI
* Bag Slots are shown in the bag window and can be toggled
* Item Borders reflect their rarity
* Frame can be resized by changing the columns
* Frame background is configurable:default background, graphical background, or no background

MyInventory Specific Features:
* You can disable specific bags in MyInventory by shift+right clicking the bag slot. This will remove it from the MyInventory frame and allow the default UI to handle just the bags you disable.

MyBank Specific Features:
* When at bank, click an unbought bag to buy a slot. It asks you to confirm before you actually purchase it.

Additional Features:
* Bank and inventory Viewing is possible with the following addon:
- MyBagsCache (Included in this package)

    As I remember the addon only show tooltips of the calready cached items. So if your itemcache is empty (after a patch, maybe), you can't see the tooltips. MyBagsCache uses GetItemInfo function, You can find more info about local cache on this page.

    Heya Takika! Still loving mybags, however latest version does NOT show tooltips in cache view. Am I doing something wrong? opening bags and bank regularly works fine, but using the cache view of bank ... no tips at all :(

    I am going to use your code to learn how to create my own addon. Thanks for using GNU GPL!
