Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.1.1628
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 ď/gridĒ for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.

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 pluginís 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 isnít already a plugin that adds the feature youíre looking for first!

Language Support

Grid is compatible with English, Deutsch, EspaŮol, FranÁais, Italiano, PortuguÍs, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 game clients.

Grid is translated into English, Deutsch, EspaŮol, FranÁais, Italiano (partial), PortuguÍs, 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.

This is a known issue, but I haven't had time to work on fixing it yet, unfortunately.

Hi Phanx, hope you will catch my message when you have time.

I am trying to setup 3 profiles - one for 10 man with bigger frames, one for 25 man and one for 40 man for Alterac Valley.

I am using macros like this

/grid profile choose Alterac Valley

and its working great.

The problem is when i change between the 3 profiles using macros the layout is not remembering his position until i open Grid and drag Frame width up or down. Once i do that it remembers the layout position.

I am asking for your help, only thing that comes to my mind is to put something that will do - set frame width 40 and then set frame width 60 in the macro but i dont know how to do that.

Hoping for some help, thanks for this great addon.

10 minutes after i wrote this, google finally helped

so my macro now looks like this


/grid profile choose Alterac Valley
/grid gridframe framewidth 50
/grid gridframe framewidth 100

Maybe its ugly from an addon writer perspective, but its doing the job

Maybe in the future you will implement

...being able to have a fixed layout and change players frame size when you switch from solo, 10, 15, 25, 40 players. Well sometimes if you can it will be great. Have a nice day.

@slotting:

Frame > Text Options > Center Text Length

As mentioned near the top of the addon description, you should really take some time to look through the options available to you before asking how to change something. Not only will you save both your time and mine by not having to ask about every single thing you want to change, but you'll probably find a lot of options you had no idea existed.

If you want any help with the menu issue, you're going to have to be a lot more specific than "it's buggy", but most likely it's the same AceConfig/AceGUI library issue already reported in the bug tracker, here:

http://www.wowace.com/addons/grid/tickets/589-overlapping-controls-in-options-window/

@Draigars:

Another typo. Change:
Code:
SLASH_GRID_SWAP_PROFILES = "/gsp"
to:
Code:
SLASH_GRID_SWAP_PROFILES1 = "/gsp"

Thanks. Now, the macro works perfectly but the Lua fragment code doesn't. No more Lua errors or anything, the game just doesn't recognize the slash command.

That's because Grid does not have a GetProfile method. Profile methods are provided by AceDB-3.0, not AceAddon-3.0, so they act on the database, not the addon. You need to call Grid.db:GetProfile() instead.

Likewise, Grid.db:SetProfile(profileName). I did typo this in the macro portion of my last post; I've edited that post to correct it.

Code:
Grid:SetProfile("Raid25")
If you just have two profiles and you want to swap between them with the same command/keybind, use a macro:
Code:
/run local A,B="Raid10","Raid25" if Grid.db:GetCurrentProfile() == A then Grid.db:SetProfile(B) else Grid.db:SetProfile(A) end
or a slash command:
Code:
SLASH_GRID_SWAP_PROFILES = "/gsp"
SlashCmdList["GRID_SWAP_PROFILES"] = function()
	if Grid.db:GetCurrentProfile() == "Raid10" then
		Grid.db:SetProfile("Raid25")
	else
		Grid.db:SetProfile("Raid10")
	end
end

Hello Phanx. Thansk for answering me in the forums.

So I tried your Layout mods, but none did satisfy me. I'll finally choose an easy solution: typing /grid profile choose Raid10 each time I'll need to.

Only thing is, it would be great to have only to type /G10. So I'd like to have a little LUA hack, but have no idea once I write the bacis.

SlashCmdList["GRID25"] = function()
???
end
SLASH_GRID25 = "/g25"
Could you help me with this? Many thanks.

Hey I'm having a problem with my grid. I use clique, and say I have horizontal groups, if I put my grid in the area I want (Towards the bottom center of my screen above my KG Panel's user frames (My UI is similar to Aliena's UI), I can't "mouseover" people and click my keybind, it doesn't highlight them, it's very sensitive to where I put my cursor. How do I fix this?

Most likely, you have some other addon covering up part of Grid with an invisible frame. Action bar addons often do this. Type "/fstack" in game and then move the mouse cursor over the area that is not responding to clicks. You should see a list of frames that are underneath the cursor's current location. If you see something that is obviously part of another addon (for example, BartenderBar4), use that addon's options to move or delete the unwanted frame. Otherwise, post a screenshot showing the /fstack window, or type out the list of frames shown in the window.
