Grid  Updated this week!  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.

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. 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other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and WowAce/Curse, or through the Curse Client or Minion, may be outdated or modified, and are not supported at all.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!
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!

Oh. There is no "configuration mode" where you can show a bunch of dummy frames. The way Grid is written (using Blizzard's secure group header system) doesn't support this.

The old "Show Frame" option wouldn't have helped; it only let you toggle Grid on/off for different group types (solo, party, raid), which can be accomplished now by selecting the "None" layout for a particular group type.

If a single frame isn't enough for you to set up most things (and then adjust the position once you're actually in a raid), you could invite some friends or guildmates to a group while you're doing dailies or idling in town, or queue up for AV and hang out in the spawn cave.

Also, since you mentioned wanting to be able to "move the layouts", I just want to clarify that Grid's position is saved for the whole profile, not per layout. The layout you choose for a particular group type only affects how many unit frames are shown and in what order. If you want Grid to be in a different place on the screen for different group types, you will need to set up separate profiles, and switch between them as desired.

To create a new profile:
Grid > Profiles > Other > Type the desired profile name and press Enter

To copy the settings from the first profile to the new profile:
Grid > Profiles > Copy from > Select the first profile's name (probably Default)

To switch between profiles:
Grid > Profiles > Choose > Select the desired profile

There are also several plugins that can switch between profiles automatically under certain conditions. A list of layout-related plugins that may be of use to you can be found here:

Thank you, and I apologize if this may seem to be rude, but, how is this supposed to help me with my problem? I really want to be able to see the frames (other than the single one that shows up when you are not grouped) so I can position them before I get into a group or raid.

Yes, I have changed a few settings, but I still have "solo" set to a group so I can see Grid. Do I need to get a plug in so I may see my frames to position them? If so, which one, please. There are several that have to do with layouts, but they all seem to just add a specific layout style to Grid.

I just want to be able to see the layouts and position them before I have to use them.

I also apologize for the tone of my post. I am severely frustrated and feel as though there is some functionality here that I am just not seeing or am not aware of.

Your first two screenshots look correct. The third screenshot is from a very old version of Grid, before support was added for setting different layouts for different group types.

It looks like you've changed some settings from their default values. Make sure that the layout is not set to "None" for the type of group you're currently in. For instance, if you're not in a group, make sure that Frame > Solo Layout is not set to "None". You can always change it back later if you don't want to see Grid while you're solo.

Edit: I went ahead and updated the screenshots of the configuration menus, too.

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).

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.

Edit: How do i change the background color of the unitframe? Also the incoming healbar isn't green - how do I change that? Tried adjusting health deficit and incoming heals, but that had no impact.
