Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.1.1628
by: Phanx, Greltok, Pastamancer
Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.

Please do not use the Bug/Feature buttons to the right, or send me PMs asking for help, reporting bugs, or requesting features. Use the links below instead!

The compact grid of units lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. It shows as much information as possible without overloading you. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how you see it. It works in both party and raid groups, and supports pets and vehicles.

Want more features? The Grid core tries to include only features which are generally useful for all classes and roles, but makes it easy to add new features with a simple plugin API for developers. Over 75 third-party plugins are already available!

Type “/grid” for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.


Need Help?

IMPORTANT: If you are using any version of Grid other than the one posted on this page — such as an alpha version from WowAce — please do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Alpha versions are development snapshots, are not officially supported, and may be buggy or broken, delete your settings, or crash your game. The release (and sometimes beta) versions posted to WoWInterface.com and Curse.com are actually tested.

✤ Found a bug?
Submit a bug report to let us know about the problem so we can fix it!

✤ Problem with a plugin?
Contact the plugin’s author for help. The Grid team cannot provide support for third-party plugins.

✤ Have a suggestion?
Feel free to tell us about your idea, but please make sure there isn’t already a plugin that adds the feature you’re looking for first!

✤ Questions? Comments?
Post a comment on this page, or post in our WowAce forum thread.


Language Support

Grid is compatible with English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 game clients.

Grid is translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any language, enter them on the WowAce project page. New and updated translations will be automatically included in the next version of Grid!

Hint: The WowAce interface for adding translations is rather cumbersome. To make the process easier, you can use the Export function on WowAce, copy the exported data into Notepad, fill in your translations, and then paste the new data back into the system using the Import function.

The layout is selected by zone type for arenas and battlegrounds (including outdoor PvP zones), and by the current raid difficulty setting everywhere else. Go under "10-Player Raid" and/or "25-Player Raid" and set the layout for those group types to "By Group 40".

Grid uses the WoW API to query the current raid size/difficulty, and since there aren't any 40-man raids in current content, Blizzard didn't include support for them in the API. Unless that changes, Grid probably won't ever have any detection for situations where you might want a 40-man layout outside of battlegrounds.

Run this macro next time you're there, and report back with what it printed to your chat frame:

/run print("Has vehicle UI?",UnitHasVehicleUI("player") and "Y" or "N") local p=Grid:GetModule("GridRoster"):GetPetUnitidByUnitid("player") if p then print("Pet GUID:",UnitGUID(p) or "nil") else print("No pet!") end

I have 2 queries but I'm not sure if they are bugs or not, so to avoid confusion, I'm checking first.

About a week ago I was in a raid for 'For the Horde!' (the faction leaders achievement). We had 40 players but Grid was only showing 10. I checked for a 40 man layout but I couldn't find one. I made all layouts 40 man but nothing changed, even with a reload.

Is this intended? Does Grid support 40 man raids? I understand that they don't occur much anymore but healing something like For the Horde! is pretty hard when you have 40 people in a PvP situation.

Also, it appears as if certain vehicles aren't adopting the 'In Vehicle' status colour. A specific example is the Strand of the Ancients Demolisher. Even if it was me controlling it, Grid showed my frame as grey instead of green (Green being the colour I had chosen for this status).

The only other statuses that I have selected under health bar colour are 'Death Warning', 'Offline Warning' and 'Unit Health'. 'Offline Warning' is the only one of these coloured grey. My suspicion is that either the 'Offline Warning' is interfering or Demolishers are classed as an unknown unit which are also coloured grey for me. Priorities have been set but did not resolve this.

Neither are particularly problematic but just things I noticed under their respective conditions.

The text you type in is the text Grid uses to see if a buff on someone is a buff you care about. The Lua programming language is case-sensitive, so if you type in "arcane brilliance", then Grid will look for buffs named "arcane brilliance", not buffs named "Arcane Brilliance".

The color of the incoming heals aren't what they're supposed to be, they're still the class color instead of the bright green i set it to.
The healing bar's color is derived from the health bar's color, and ignores the color of whatever status it's displaying. There's a ticket open on CurseForge requesting an option to change this, and it might happen someday, but for now that's how it is.

No, and both myself and Pastmancer have explained why dozens of times. Search here or in the Wowace forum thread if you care.

I can't get this release to detect any of my custom buffs. I didn't have this issue in WoTLK.

Is this a bug or is anyone else having these issues? I've gone through all the settings and can't find anything that might help. The buff I'd really like to get working is arcane brilliance.

thanks!

NM Fixed it. You can't shift+click and you need to type it with caps and all =)

I would swear you used to be able to shift click though..

I'm having a problem with the incoming heals. The color of the incoming heals aren't what they're supposed to be, they're still the class color instead of the bright green i set it to.
i tried changing the line in the code, displayed in ticket 193, but since the code changed a lot the lines are different. i think i changed the correct ones, but it just messed up everything, range, color, alpha, ... so i changed it back.
i'm using the release version found on wowinterface and curse fyi.

anything i can do to fix it? or is there an ETA for any planned changes that would resolve this issue?

thank you very much

Alpha versions are development snapshots. They may be buggy, or they may not work at all. They may erase your settings. They are not tested thoroughly, if at all. In many cases, I write code while I'm at work, and commit it to the repository to test later when I'm at home. I do not provide any support for alpha versions. This is even stated in bold text in the addon description here:

If you downloaded Grid from wowace.com, or through the Curse Client, please do not post here. The WoWInterface releases are actually tested. Anything from wowace.com is bleeding-edge and may or may not work.
If you are not comfortable using untested, unstable, and unsupported development snapshots, don't download alpha versions. Stick to beta and release versions.

Range checking is being rewritten, and is more likely than not to be broken in any given alpha version at the moment. If you do not understand what alpha versions are, don't use them.

I want to see everyones health, even when out of range for heals. I want to see everyone who has X debuff or Y Buff, even when out of range. I just want their Frame Alpha to fade when they are out of range for me to heal them.

Yes, this is why I came here to try and figure why i no longer can see who is out of range. I have to revert back too I can't be wasting time trying to heal people who are out of my range. Can you put the range function back in the new version?

The grid on the left side ... How in the world do I get rid of that?
Grid only makes one set of frames, and I’m not familiar with the UI you linked, sorry. Have you tried asking the UI’s uploader?

kubasniak:
I have checked ENABLE ICON COOLDOWN FRAME and ENABLE ICON STACK TEXT and both DOESN'T WORK. I don't know why, I downloaded a plugin GridIndicatorSideIcons and I checked the same both options and it doesn't work too. I see the renew icon but I don't see a cooldown frame on it. Same with cooldown text plugin for grid. Nothing works. It works when I check Configuration Mode then I see stacks and cooldown frame.
The icon cooldown frame and icon stack text are part of the default “Center Icon” indicator, so the options to show them or not won’t have any effect on indicators added by plugins. Also, even if you enable them, they are only shown if the currently active status includes duration or stack information. Which statuses have you tried on the Center Icon indicator?

Also, I’m not sure what you mean by “Configuration Mode”, since Grid doesn’t have one!

nammerduong:
I was able to set it so that when I join a dungeon group or any normal party, the default party frames wont appear.
Grid doesn’t hide any default UI frames. Maybe your primary unit frame addon (player and target frames) had that feature? If not, you can always install HideBlizzard.

Just out of curiosity would it be possible to add additional frame anchors, top center and bottom center? Corners are fine and dandy, unless you're OCD like me and want it centered each and every time. :P

[Edit] Nevermind, when I looked into the anchor menu the center option originally was not there. I'm sure it's a bug on my end, but updating Grid has the anchor properly displaying and my unit frames are centered again. Sorry.

The grid on the left side ... How in the world do I get rid of that?

Well, the one at the bottom can be solved with a reboot(for now) but THAT GRID ON THE LEFT IS BOTHERING ME SO HARD.

What is that??

I currently use this UI.

Grid Frame Hanging Below Background

I'm having a problem where my Grid unit frame boxes are literally hanging below the Grid frame background. I can't seem to figure out how to fix this either.

So say you have 2 columns of 5 rows. For some reason the first 2 rows are empty, and then it puts the other 5 below those, thus hanging below the Grid frame background image. =(

Also, this incident is only happening when using the
"By Class 10"
Any suggestions? I've tried clearing Grid and reinstalling it but no avail.
