Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.2.1699
by: Phanx, Greltok, Pastamancer

Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.

The compact grid of unit frames 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.

Please do not use the Bug/Feature buttons to the right, or send me PMs to ask for help, report problems, or request features. Use the links below instead!

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.

Language Support
Grid is compatible with all World of Warcraft localizations. It is currently translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, 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 quite cumbersome. To make the process easier, you can use the Export function on WowAce, copy the exported data into your text editor, fill in your translations, and then paste them back into WowAce using the Import function.
Credits

Thanks! And I found out my problem with the incoming heals bar not showing up. It was set at minimum of 5000 and my little shaman healer is only cranking 800ish at level 33.

I'd also like to see a way to make grid grow up. For most UI, the majority of your junk is at the bottom of the screen. Having grid grow down is just asking for an overlay, especially in battlegrounds like WG where you're in a completely full raid.

I am new to using grid and I have one big question. I can not seem to get incoming heals to show. Just to clarify this is what I mean:

To me incoming heals is when on a character healthbar, a green bar appears over the health. So say a character was at 50% health and I was going to heal him to 80%. His health would be displayed from 0-50% and a green bar representing the heal fills the space from 50-80%. Is there a way to get grid to do this?

Is there any way to make grid grow up instead of down? I have my grid set to horrizontal groups and I have it placed right over my player / target frames. I mainly do 10 mans so I set it for that. The only problem with this is when I go into a 15 or more people BG, group 3+ goes down into my player / target frames, so I would like these groups to go up instead. Thanks.

That's been asked and answered about a million times. The short answer is that the Blizzard template system upon which Grid relies does not support creating fake frames, or showing frames whose units don't currently exist, so a "configuration mode" is not possible.

If you don't have any friends or guildmates who are willing to sit in a raid group for a few minutes with you, joining a battleground is a good way to get a full Grid to see what your current settings will look like. Plus, you can show a frame for just yourself by setting your solo layout to anything other than "None" if you just need to test out things like icon sizing, etc.

Do you ever intend to add a configuration mode option? One that would fill in your grid spots as if you were in a raid because it can sometimes be a pain to get a raid group to configure your grid.

1. Try resetting your Grid profile, or switching to a new one with default settings.

2. If that doesn't resolve the issue, read the addon description under "How to report a bug in Grid".

That feature isn't, and hasn't ever been, part of the Grid core. If in the past you've had an option to duplicate your group, it was provided by a plugin. There are several layout-related plugins available, including one that restores the old by-class layouts for people who (for reasons I can't understand) want 11 columns/rows of 2-3 frames each on their screen. I don't have a link offhand; scroll through previous comments to find it.

It works perfectly except for one thing: my corners indicators doesn't work. Whatever I want to see, buff, aggro, debuff... it simply doesn't work.
What should I do ?

Is that why I wouldn't let my hubby upgrade it?

What about my other question - of seeing my party or who's in my group while I am raiding?

BTW ty for the quick response

Does grid still show or have an option to show my party then by class?

The new grid seems to have a class setting but lumps them all together. My classic grid had each class on a separate line so I had 11 lines. The 1st line was my party then 1 for each of the 10 classes.

Thank you - I miss my classic look of grid

You're probably thinking of "/grid standby" which was a feature provided by the Ace2 framework. There isn't an equivalent feature built into Ace3. Currently the recommended methods for hiding/disabling Grid are to set the layout for your current group type to "None", or to simply disable Grid at the addons screen.
