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.

    I added support for Dominos' in v1.0.13Beta. I don't use Domino's myself so please let me know if there's any problems.

    r48 works well now. By the way, is it possible not to dim healing spell while target is harmful? or add an option for it :Q

    let me know if r48 gives you the #14 GetLocale() error.

    sorry for the error in r46, I'm working on adding languages but still needs work.

    Healing targets target only checks if a healing spell exists on your targets target instead of your target. So if you cast Rejuvenation on your self then the healing spell will dim if your target's targeting you.

    I'll look into the argent tournament vehicle actions.

    Thx a lot, It's work fine now :D But there's still some problem... There's 6 skill on argent tournament vehicle, "Defend" should be useable anytime. "Refresh Mount" should be useable while out of combat and not on cooldown. But they still fade out while I have target. By the way, "Healing targets target" function seems not working at all :/ In combat while my target's target is myself, healing spell still fade out. That's all the problem I've seen now. Anyway, it's still a good UI :)

    Okay I just got the error too. It was due to using GetSpellName with a spellID of 0. Try r45.
