Healbot working with Razer Naga #7
Unfortunately it doesn't look possible :(
Since Windows only see's up to MB5.
My Mouse side buttons work perfectly fine in WoW - But they act as keyboard presses..

I don't know where Healbot is getting the MB6+ info from, because they technically don't exist.. right?
If they did exist this would be easy to set up.

If I remember correctly, WoW has up to 20 buttons, this has been discussed in the past and I thought some people found a way around the windows limitation... maybe they switched to using a mac!

ok I was wrong on the number, Blizzard has up to 31 buttons.

The secure template all click and cast on unit addons must use

Blizzard's code on setting button id's
-- Build lookup table for less common buttons
local BUTTON_LOOKUP_TABLE = {};
for n = 4, 31 do
    BUTTON_LOOKUP_TABLE["Button" .. n] = tostring(n);
end

Edit: Healbot simply binds to these ID's.. a snip of the updated healbot code
    for x=1,15 do
        if x==1 then 
            HB_button="Left";
        elseif x==2 then 
            HB_button="Right";
        elseif x==3 then 
            HB_button="Middle";
        else
            HB_button="Button"..x
        end
...

So as I stated at the start, if you can get it working in WoW, it will work in Healbot.

I understand what you're say. I really do.

But also, what i'm saying is my side buttons on my mouse count as key presses. Not buttons.
And as Windows only see's MB up to 5.. I simply cannot use Healbot with more then 5 buttons.

There is no way i can make WoW see my side buttons as ACTUAL buttons and not key presses.
Even going onto the Razer program, I can only set up to Mouse Button 5.

I've looked into many different programs to remap but again, since windows only see's 5 MB's this simply cannot work.
:(

My quick research indicates you are correct Zilbot. This mouse is a 5 button mouse with a keyboard extension set of buttons on the side.

All WOW addons can receive all mouse button presses from WOW. If it's not defined in WOW as a mouse button you cant get it in an addon.

However you can get the same effect by binding the side buttons to a macro and using a "mouseover" macro in WOW. Then you mouseover a healbot bar and press the side button it will still run the macro.

This whole discussion is a subject for the wow forums - its not an addon issue.

Hope that makes it clearer.
