Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.2.1679-beta
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.

Need Help?
IMPORTANT: If you did not download Grid from this page, do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Alpha versions from WowAce are development snapshots, are not officially supported, and may be buggy or broken, delete your settings, or crash your game. Copies of Grid obtained from anywhere other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and WowAce/Curse are not supported at all.
Found a bug?
Please 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 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
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. Mikk designed the icon. jlam added some advanced options for auras. Greltok has helped a lot with bugfixing. Finally, lots of people have contributed translations!

Hack to get some Grid addons to work.

I was getting errors with the following Grid addons with the newest version:

GridIndicatorCornerPlus
GridIndicatorIconBar
GridManaBars
GridStatusChainWho

I found that the addons where trying to reference variables from Grid that are now defined as local..

So i did these quick modifications :

GridFrame.lua (Line 4)
Code:
local GridFrame = Grid:NewModule("GridFrame")
to

Code:
GridFrame = Grid:NewModule("GridFrame")
GridStatus.lua (Line 10)
Code:
local GridStatus = Grid:NewModule("GridStatus", "AceModuleCore-2.0")
to

Code:
GridStatus = Grid:NewModule("GridStatus", "AceModuleCore-2.0")


So the other addons work as usual.. Not sure how many global Grid variables have been made local, but i was just trying to get them to work.

Update Grid. Update any Grid plugins you use. Then, follow the bug reporting procedures as outlined in the addon description.

I'll have to try those out to see. I was pressed for time when I noticed it originally. I suspect it may be the gridmana bars addon, but I'm not sure as it worked fine. I just reverted to an old build of Grid, never had any errors with either version, old or new.
The numerical deficit showed, but the background visual didn't.

Grid update

Health deficits aren't showing after this last update. I haven't changed any settings after applying it. Makes healing a bit rough, what do I need to change to get the deficits back? All the settings seem to be the same as the old version I was using.

  • Added dual spec support.
  • Added "By Class" layouts without pets.
  • The health bar background will now be colored correctly (instead of black) when "Invert Bar Color" is enabled but "Use class colors" is disabled on the Unit Health status.
  • The minimap icon will now be correctly shown or hidden when changing profiles.
  • Switching specs will no longer cause a momentary freeze.
  • Updated embedded libraries for WoW 3.3.5. (Note that this does NOT break compatibility with 3.3.3 or lower, so you can safely update Grid even if your locale hasn't patched yet.)

There is a Lua error; your error handler sucks.

That said, the problem is actually in one of the libraries Grid uses, and an update will be posted later tonight to resolve the issue. For now, just relog instead of reloading your UI.

Noticing since the last patch, a /reload will make Grid just go Pure Black.
No lua error or anything

Hello,

I'd like the "Health Deficit" and "Health Bar" to be colored based on the unit's health.

Is this possible? This is one of the most important indications.

Thank you.

There isn't. I'm actually not sure why you'd want that. It would make buffing, resurrecting, etc. more difficult, and there's not really that much time where you're in a raid and out of combat for more than a minute or two.
