Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.1.0.1
by: Phanx, Trelis

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.

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
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!

Frames?

I have a bit of a problem. I'm new to Grid and I downloaded/installed Grid v1.30300.1290, and I have no option showing anywhere that will allow me to see and position my frames. Is this normal? Do I need a plug-in to give me that capability? I have uninstalled/reinstalled twice, and I realize this doesn't always fix problems but I figured it was worth a try.

Here a two screen shots to illustrate my problem.



For comparison, here is the preview picture from the main page


As you can see, there is no "Show Frame" option for me. There is also none in the GUI options. Yes, I read the Guide.

Sorry about the large post. I'm just trying to see if I messed something up somehow.

I'd recommend that you change that setting back to its default value of downloading only release versions, or at least only release and beta versions. Addon authors have to intentionally mark versions as release or beta, whereas every commit made to the addon's repository is available automatically as an alpha version.

If you want things to work the way they did before you updated, you have two options:

1. Update your plugins. Like I said, the majority of plugins were already updated, so if the plugins you're using are actively supported by their authors, this should solve the "problem". However, without knowing what plugins you use, I can't tell you with any certainty whether updates are available, so you'll actually have to find out yourself.

2. Download an older version of Grid (I'd suggest sticking with a stable release version), either from this page, or from Curse.com.

Edit: Also, to clarify, none of your settings were altered in any way. Once you get your plugins up to date, all of your settings are still there, and everything should work just as it did before.
Thank you, I finally could make it and I didn't loose any of my settings (I downloaded Grid from this page and overwrote the alfa version).

r1293 is an alpha version that is only available on wowace.com, and as such is not intended for widespread use by normal addon users. If you want to use alpha versions, you can, but you should expect that they will not always work. Generally, you should only post on WoWI about files that are actually released on WoWI.

That said, there were no changes in r1293 that should affect plugins. If the problem also occurs with the latest release version (1.30300.1290, available on this page) then it is most likely not actually a problem at all, but rather the expected result of using outdated plugins. As per the change log for this release:



The related changes in Grid were made in alpha versions back in December; plugin authors whose plugins weren't already compatible had over four months to make the very minor changes required.

The majority of plugins were updated well in advance of this release. If you've double-checked and there is actually no update available for a plugin, then you will need to either wait for its author to update it, or find a replacement plugin whose author actively maintains it.

Hi there,

I just updated Grid to version r1293 and I am having some problems with it. I can't use any of the pluggins I was using before (such as Icon bars), it seems that all the indicators except the default ones are broken...

Any help?

I don't use any of those plugins, so you'd need to either try them out and see what options they have, or ask their authors whether (and if so, how) they can do what you want.

Hmm. I'm aware of those. Tried 'GridAutoFrameSize', but wasn't sure how it differentiated from standard Grid behavior. Didn't seem to do anything for me.

Guessing 'GridCustomLayouts' is the one to use, but man that looks overly complex. Other than that, I don't see a solution.

If you want to change settings other than the actual layout setting, you'd need to set up different profiles, and either manually switch between them, or install a plugin to automatically switch between layouts for different group sizes.

You'll find a list of up-to-date layout-related plugins for Grid here:

Cool Phanx, thanks for the heads up on all of that. Another question for the group or for Phanx. How do I have Grid change layout based on my group size? For ex, When in 5-man or 10-man, I want Grid to use the horizontal group layout. When in 25+ I want it to use vertical. Or another ex, when in a 5-man or 10-man have Grid located in the bottom center of the screen but when in a 25+ man raid, have it moved to the left side of the screen (where there is more room).

I ask because there is limited space where I have Grid right now - I have more horizontal than vertical space if needed. Is there a mod that will make Grid fit in a designated area? Or different profiles for different group sizes / locations?

I just fixed a bug with the health bar background color when "Invert colors" is enabled but "Use class colors" is disabled. Grab the latest alpha on wowace.com/addons/grid/ ... if nothing else comes up I'll push a new release in a couple of days.

As for the healing bar, there is no way to make it green. Its color is always derived from the health bar's color, not from the status assigned to it. If you want to make it green, you'll need to edit the code.

When Status -> Health -> Unit Health has class colors unchecked, my frame is black. When it's checked, the frame colors properly to the class color. How do I change that from black? Seems that the units only properly color when class colors are checked - but even so, the health background (when there is a deficit) is pure black.

Well, my post you're referring to was talking about something rather different than what you're talking about.

That said, though, I'm not interested in adding options to the core to add backdrops or borders to individual frames either. Especially for backdrops, what would be the point? The frame is a solid square; even when health is depleted, you see the health bar background. You never see an individual frame's backdrop.

As for borders, the frame border is an important part of the frame which is used to convey status information; most "texture" style borders are too thin or not solid enough to usefully display this information, so replacing the existing border would not be an acceptable course of action.

If you mean a second border surrounding the actual border, well, in a normal Grid configuration there's not enough space between frames where you'd even be able to see that. Could you post a screenshot of your configuration?

Despite all that, for what you're trying to do, creating 40 separate panels in kgPanels is indeed an inefficient and ridiculous solution. Creating a simple frame generator in Lua, and then looping through each Grid frame and generating an identical frame for each Grid frame, would be much less work, both in initial setup and in future maintenance.

Ya I was talking about bordering each individual frame, which sadly you were not interested in making possible.
