Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.7.1653
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.

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!

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.


Credits

Grid was originally conceived and written by Maia and Pastamancer in late 2006. Phanx has been the primary developer since late 2009. Jerry wrote the original pet support code.

No. You can uncheck "Use class colors" for the Unit Health status, and that will let you make the bars all gray, but the foreground color is always derived from the background color (or vice versa, if you have the invert option on). I have no plans to change this.

Post a ticket over on CurseForge and attach your Grid saved variables, and state which profile you are using. Without seeing your actual settings, all I can suggest is checking to make sure someone actually has that buff on them (since the only way the status would show when you check "Show if missing" would be if they don't have the buff).

Use any of the numerous druid-HoT-related plugins. See the User's Guide (link in addon description) for a list of available plugins. Remember, though, that plugins are not written or supported by the Grid team, so if you have questions about a plugin or need help with one, you'll need to post that on the plugin's page, not here.

I'm not going to waste my time watching a video and squinting at the undoubtedly horrible quality and tiny resolution trying to figure out what you're talking about, but based on your description (what I quoted) no, Grid does not offer that functionality. It would require not only moving the text outside the box, but also adding a bunch of extra spacing between boxes. All in all, it's a huge waste of space and does not increase functionality in the slightest.

However I only seem to be able to choose classcolored, or a custom color with the problem being that the healthdeficit is also in that color.

Oh and I added Beacon of Light to the buff section, however the dot in the corner wont show. It does when I check the box "show when not applied" (or something like that), but ofcourse I don't want all my raidframes to have the dot.
Led,

I use grid and have my frames set to all a grey color and then at a certain hp lose the frames go class colored. Pops out very well who is down health and what not. Pic below.



To do this I do the following.

Status > Health > Health Deficit > Class colored AND 80% threshold (obviously can be raised or lowered)
Status > Health > Unit Health > Custom AND Color is d5d5d5 its a grey white, because grids frames color very dark for some reason.

Indicators > Healing Bar Color > Check Health Deficit, Unit Health AND Debuff: Ghost
Indicators > Healing Bar > Incoming Heals

Might not be exactly what you want, but I havent yet found a way to keep the health bar grey while the deficit shows class colored. And this works very well for prioritizing heals.

/grid > "Frame" tab > "Orientation of Frame" dropdown > "Horizontal"

You should probably spend a few minutes looking at the options. This one is one of the first things visible when you open the options window.

The problem however is, I want to set a threshold for when Unit Health is displayed, much like you can set a threshold for Unit Health Deficit.
Not possible per se, since the Unit Health status controls the health bar too. If you set a threshold of, say, 50%, then health bars would stay full and then suddenly jump down to 50% with no updates in between.

You might be able to find a plugin to help you. See the User's Guide (there's a link in the main description) for a list of existing plugins.

Grid at Chimaeron!

I have run on to a bit of a snag at the Chimaeron encounter in Blackwing Descent.

Basically, as a raid healer I need to make sure that everyone is above 10k health due to the encounter mechanics.


I usually have health deficit shown as center text, but for this occasion to keep track of who to heal, I want to see their current health. I have now activated Unit Health instead.

The problem however is, I want to set a threshold for when Unit Health is displayed, much like you can set a threshold for Unit Health Deficit.

Thanks alot!

Came on here to see if anyone else was having this problem, just noticed it since I started doing Tol Barad the last 2 days, first time I've been in a raid in over 8 months.

Hi Nanda,

Information about incoming heals comes directly from the WoW game client, not from Grid. If WoW gives Grid wrong information, Grid doesn’t have any way to tell that it’s wrong. I know there are several spells that currently give wrong information, but I don’t play a priest, so I don’t know about Prayer of Healing. Your best bet is probably to post in the Blizzard bugs forum.
