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.


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.


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.

Hello Phanx,

A few guildies of mine have been asking this question. Is their a way in Grid to show who needs heals most?

1.30300.1290
  • Upgraded to LibHealComm-4.0
  • Updated the By Class layouts to be more practical for modern raid sizes
  • Added default settings for Earth Shield
  • Fixed statusbar texture tiling in WoW 3.3.3
  • Fixed several minor bugs in the incoming heals status module
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally prevented available spell ranges from being detected on login
  • Removed global references for core modules – you will need to update your plugins to work with this release!

Most plugins have already been updated to work with the changes in this release, so you should check that you have the latest version of any plugins you use.

If a plugin generates an error along the lines of “attempt to access GridStatus (a nil value)”, and no newer versions of that plugin are available (make sure you've checked over on Curse too), then you will not be able to use that plugin until its author updates it. There shouldn't be very many of these, though.

Re: Background Color

No. The darker of the background/foreground is derived from the lighter one. So, if you're using the "Invert health bar colors" option to make the foreground lighter than the background, and then set the foreground to 0.5, 0.5, 0.5, the background color will be derived as 0.5 * 0.2, 0.5 * 0.2, 0.5 * 0.2, which works out to 0.1, 0.1, 0.1, which looks a lot like black.

The ability to use a custom health color was kind of an afterthought; I don't have any plans to add more options along that vein, since "dark on dark" is not what Grid was designed for, so if the existing options don't do what you want, you'll have to get your hands dirty and modify the code in your local copy.

Background Color

Hello, just wondering, is there a way to change the background color of the units (also known as the deficit section of the unit)? I can change the unit health section, but for some reason the background color (deficit) is just black. Thanks!

There are several plugins that add more icon indicators, and they're not hard to find, though it doesn't look like any are hosted on WoWI. Searching on Google for "wow grid icons" brought up two on the first page of results. Searching on CurseForge for "grid icons" brought up four results on the first page.

The major issue I have with Grid is the inability to configure it to show buff icons versus "green/yellow/red" dots upon the corners of the frames. (Sacred Shield, Beacon of Light, etc.) I loathe using other mods to visually track my healing in a raid, especially during heroic-mode encounters, however I need to be able to see an icon and possibly even a timer for when mentioned buffs like this are about to expire.

Do you happen to be aware of any modules that might support these kind of features for Grid?

Yes; use the Group Anchor setting under Layout > Advanced.

Most likely, you do not have the Incoming Heals status assigned to any indicator(s). By default, it is shown on the Healing Bar indicator:

Grid > Frame > Healing Bar > check "Incoming Heals"

HI, for some reason Grid stopped showing "incoming heals" any suggestion ? Am I the only one having this problem?

I see all the normal options of "incoming heals":
- in any Frame I see "Incoming Haals" on the list of statuses
- i also see grid -> status -> incoming heals (and is enabled)

Any suggesiton would be great
Thx in advance ~

EDIT:
Found a workaround: I simply created and reseted a new profile, im now reconfiguring all the options again.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but is there a way to configure Grid so it shows the icon for a buff that's MISSING from a raid member? Like, can I make it so the Power Word: Fortitude icon comes up on a frame if a raid member does NOT have the buff?

This would make things rather easy for buffing, so please let me know if it's possible and how I would go about setting it up this way. Thanks!

Without seeing your settings, I have no idea what the problem might be. Upload your Grid saved variables file somewhere and PM me the URL, or just wipe your settings and reconfigure the addon from scratch.
