Grid  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3.1710
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.

IMPORTANT: If you did not download Grid from this page, do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Copies of Grid obtained from anywhere other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and WowAce/Curse, or through the Curse Client or Minion, may be outdated or modified, and are not supported at all.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!

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!

Version 6.0.3.1710
  • Temporary fix for raid difficulty detection: LFR, Normal, and Heroic will use your chosen "Flexible Raid" layout, and Mythic will use your "25 Player Raid" layout. In the near future, all built-in layouts will automatically adjust their size for your current raid, and there will only be one "Raid" layout setting.
  • Fixed an issue with right-click bindings in Clique (ticket #747)
  • Fixed the Mouseover status not triggering when "Show Tooltip" was set to "Never" (ticket #770)
  • Fixed another issue with status counts (eg. aura stacks) (ticket #768)

Create your own layout, or edit one of the existing ones.

Is there a way to get grid to display the raid in one long line? For instance, the 5 man group grid is one line, but can you do that with a 25 man raid?

Not possible, and never will be, in the core addon. It would require not only calculating the height/width of each unit frame, but adjusting several other secure layout attributes as well, and making sure that all of this was only done outside of combat, because secure attributes cannot be changed by addons while you're in combat. You could write a plugin that would do this, or you could set up different profiles with different unit heights/widths for different raid sizes and switch between them (either manually, or automatically with a plugin).

3) Have pets be visibile units but clearly identified and preferably off to the side so I can ignore them if I want.
You could set pets to use the "fallback" color instead of their owner's class color. The default fallback color for friendly units is a medium green that's distinct from any class colors, and is configurable.

I'm sure you already know, but just to make sure, Grid2 is a totally separate addon from Grid2, and is developed/supported by a totally separate group of people. However, the above answers apply equally to both addons, though the specific instructions may differ slightly.

I've messed around with both Grid and Grid2 a bit, but I'm trying to achieve certain functions and am curious if either Grid (or preferably Grid2) can achieve all of these before I sink a ton of time:

1) Border highlighting for debuffs that can be cured (pretty sure both can do this).

2) Define a width/height and have Grid fit all the units in that space, preferably with a maximum size defined so if there's just a few units they aren't ginormous.

3) Have pets be visibile units but clearly identified and preferably off to the side so I can ignore them if I want.


Ideally I'd like to creat two blocks (I generally have groups 6-8 in a block by themselves because they're so seldomly used), but I understand that can't be done.

Also, I don't expect a walkthrough on how to do this stuff. I'm just curious if either or both can achieve these effects and then I'll sink the time into doing all the learning/configuring. Right now I'm using Pitbull4, which I love, but I just find the CPU tax to be a little high in a raid and Grid(2) seems to be the best alternative. Thanks.

Ah ha! I had made the faulty assumption that maxColumns was in reference to the raid group as a whole, and not a property if isPetGroup while briefly skimming over the layouts before posting. This is exactly what I needed, and the timely response at this hour is greatly appreciated.

Is there a method to either A) filter out a certain classes pets from displaying (I generally don't worry too much about DK ghouls in raids given their short CD) or, B) cap the number of pets displayed at an even 5?

No, and putting half your raid on each side of the screen is pretty much the polar opposite of everything Grid was designed for.

And "/assist mouseover" is shorter than "/target mouseovertarget".

You could also, for instance, make a macro in clique like this:
Code:
/cast [@mouseover,help,nodead] Intervene
/target mouseovertarget

Re: targeting

@Thayloo:
  1. Download and install Clique.
  2. Log into WoW, open your spellbook, and click the new Clique tab along the right edge, underneath your normal tabs.
  3. In the dropdown at the top of the Clique window, select "Helpful Actions"... unless you want to also assist hostile targets (click-bindings set up through Clique affect all unit frames, though if you really only want it to affect Grid, you can tell it to ignore all other frames).
  4. Click the "Custom" button at the bottom of the Clique window.
  5. In the window that pops up, click the "Assist unit" radio button.
  6. Left-click on the set-binding button (I don't remember offhand what it says before you've set a binding, but it's the button in the middle of the window).
  7. Click "Save" and close all the windows. You should be all set.
If you want left-click-to-assist to only happen on Grid frames, follow the instructions on the Clique download page under "How do I STOP Clique from click-casting on a specific frame, but leave it active on others" to disable the binding on all non-Grid frames.
