Gladius  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.0.0
by: Proditor, Resike, Rinu
What is Gladius?
Gladius adds enemy unit frames to arenas for easier targeting and focusing. It shows a health bar, a mana bar below the health bar (optional), a cast bar below the mana bar (optional), a class icon to the left side of the health bar (optional) and important buffs and crowd control durations (optional, overlays the class icon). The frame resizes itself to the current bracket (optional).

Gladius uses the 3.0.2 arena unit ids, therefore it'll add units automatically to the frame (byebye targeting macros) and you'll always be able to target/focus the enemies, regardless of if they are added when you're in combat. The cast bars and the buff/debuff timers should be 100% correct.

You can add important buffs and crowd controls in the auralist.lua file. You will have to select a priority for it. If a buff/debuff is already displaying when the spell is cast it'll only show up on the class icon if the priority equals or is higher than the current one displayed.

More features:
Arena enemies targets (optional): displays the class of the arena enemy's current target in a small frame on the health bar to the right.

Trinket status (optional): has a few different display options, but in general it shows if the PvP Trinket is ready for the arena enemy.

Slash commands:
/gladius ui, config, options - displays the configuration screen
/gladius test1-5 - shows a test frame with the chosen amount of test units
/gladius hide - hides the test frame
/gladius trinket - simulates a trinket being used for the first arena target

But.. but.. this is very similar to Proximo and SSAF?
Yes, I simply created this as a learning project for Lua. I actually didn't plan on releasing it but in the end I thought it turned out pretty good and decided to give it a go. I do not expect to start competing with the big boys, but perhaps someone else is interested in using it.

Thanks:
Thanks to Proximo, SSArena Frames and their respective developers for working as both inspirational and informational sources.

Note: If you find any errors or bugs, please report them to me via http://proditor.wowinterface.com/

Think you could tell me what the error message says? I think I know what it is but I want to be certain before uploading a new rev.

Ehh, just to clarify I meant that it's not a high priority on my to-do list. Forgetting important keywords is clever.

Make a suggestion on my author portal so I won't forget it.

[Frame 3]
[Frame 4]
[Frame 5]
I would like to group them like this, for it to fit my UI a lot better:
Code:
[Frame 1] [Frame 2] [Frame 3] [Frame 4] [Frame 5]
Is there any way to do this codewise? I'm not an expert .lua coder, but I guess I know what to do if you give me some hints. :P

Thanks in advance!

Thanks! And fantastic mod btw... really love it
A click cast in Gladius or a regular macro?

For the first just select "Cast Spell" and write the spell name in the text field and the latter isn't really a Gladius thing but:

/cast [target=arena1] Cyclone

Is there anyway to change the health bars of the targets so they are always yellow and not class specific? It would really help me when glancing at gladius to see who is low on health!

thanks

Gladius doesn't seem to be displaying LSM textures? I've got shared media instealled, but I just get minimalist (the one in the gladius folder) and the default blizzard one.

Addons like omen and pitbull see them fine though.

adding SharedMedia to the OptionalDeps in the toc file resolves it though.

Have a feeling that it might be something simple such as the secure frame not being positioned/sized perfectly.
I'm using the cast spell function. I thought it fixed itself, until just now in my 3s it did it again. I clicked to Cyclone the Druid, but it Cycloned the Hunter instead. I thought to myself, OK, it had to have been a misclick, so I clicked to Cyclone the Druid again, but this time I aimed a bit more down, and took my time, and it Cycloned the Hunter again .
