BetterExtraActionButton
Version: 1.3
by: nebula [More]
Makes the ExtraActionButton used in Dragon Soul raid encounters (Ultraxion and Madness of Deathwing) movable.

For 4.1 and 4.2 raid encounter power bars (Atramedes, Cho'gall, Alysrazor, and Rhyolith) and all the various quest and dungeon power bars (Darkmoon Faire games, Murozond in End Time), check out BetterPowerBarAlt!

There is no config. Right click on the frame to make it movable, then drag it to where you want and right click again to lock it in place. While it is unlocked, you can also use your mouse wheel over the frame to adjust it's scale and reset it back to its default scale by pressing the middle mouse button.

You can skin the button with Masque and you also have the option to turn off the background artwork with "/beab togglebg". The clickable area to unlock the button while the background hidden is the area immediately surrounding the button. While unlocked, the artwork is shown and you can use it to drag the button around.

"/beab toggle" to show/hide the frame for placement outside of an encounter that uses it.

If you find the frame some place it shouldn't be, you can type "/beab reset" to move it to the center of screen.
1.3 - hopefully done with taint issues now
1.2 - shenanigans to avoid ADDON_BLOCKED/taint messages
1.1.1 - use a smaller area for clicks when hiding the bg so we don't interfere with things that are under the (hidden) artwork
1.1 - artwork hiding and masque support
1.0 - initial goodness

This doesn't always work. Some fights it moves the action button other fights it does not.
Like on will of the emperor when you get the button to do a million damage. It shown in its original location, but other fights the button is moved.

Is there an addon out there that can move the button for good, and can move the button without needing the fight.

Its a mystery then - if I disable it all the skins come back :S

Macaroon uses masque skinning as well.

Does Macaroon have an option to skin the ExtraActionButton? I know Bartender does not, but I'm still not sure how that would make all your skins vanish. Could you elaborate on that?

I mean, the code for Masque support is simply:
Code:
local MSQ = LibStub and LibStub("Masque", true)
if MSQ then
	MSQ:Group("BetterExtraActionButton"):AddButton(_G["ExtraActionButton1"])
end
So I suppose I could do a check for other mods that allow you skin the button and just not enable it from mine, but other than that, I'm at a loss ;[
