Hostile target out of range

Update 02/12/11: Sorry for the delay in Bartender/Dominos support. I've been busy with other projects and haven't had time to play WoW or tinker with addons. I used to use Bartender pre-cata so I hope to get Bartender support working.

Dimmed Actions will turn your action buttons (semi) transparent if they meet any of the following conditions

  • Target is out of range for that action.
  • Not enough mana/energy/rage for that action.
  • Action cannot be cast on target (healing spells on hostile target)
  • Action is currently on cooldown.
  • Spell already exists on target.

Each of these conditions are optional and can be turned off.


  • Add options to disable spell exists on specific actions.
  • Add support for Bartender & Dominos' bars.

    hey, i'm running dominos action bars and i'm currently running dimmed actions and it doesn't seem to do anything when i'm in range or out of range while playing a warlock.

    Which class are you? I currently check action cooldowns against certain spells to see if they're on cooldown or global cooldown.

    These are the spells I check against. Blood Strike (DK), Healing Touch (druid), Serpent Sting (hunter), Fireball (mage), Flash of Light (pally), Lesser Heal (priest), Sinister Strike (rogue), Healing Wave (shaman), Immolate (warlock) and Sunder Armor (warrior).

    Does your class not have this spell? I mainly need a spell that a class is guaranteed to have which has no cooldown but still suffers from global cooldown.

    Thanks for the good effort. But I wonder if you could seperate the Public Cooldown into a single group? Everytime they are dimmed which cofused me "which ones are CD and which ones are in Public CD?"

    My bad Mark617. I was working on something target related last week and forgot about it. Then recently I was asked to add item cooldowns and didn't notice the target changes.

    I'm sure I had a reason for changing it but I can't think of it now. I'll fix it later today/tomorrow.

    Awesome change adding item cooldowns. Thank you.

    One question - versions prior to r115 were working correctly in terms of Show No Target / Dim Cooldown. As of r115, If only Dim Cooldowns is checked, buttons only dim with a target selected. This occurence is true whether or not Show No Target is checked.

    With Show No Target unchecked / Dim Cooldown checked, the actions on CD should be dimmed, correct? This is not so as of r115.

    If both SNT / DC are checked, dimming still won't occur until a target is selected (assuming this is how this should work though).

    Hi there. I have just finished some translation for Simplified Chinese. The progress should be 80/83 now and I have made some corrections. The Traditional Chinese version might not be far different from the simplified version, which i think so. Need review ; P
