Grid  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.

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)

Re: Unit Health - Background color

You may be able to achieve the result you want without editing code, by disabling the "Invert health bar color" option (it's disabled by default) and choosing a lighter gray color for the Unit Health status. The darker color is derived from the Unit Health status' color, so if you choose a dark gray, the darker background/foreground (depending on your Invert setting) will appear black. If you choose a lighter gray, you'll get a darker gray, and you should be able to swap the foreground and background using the Invert setting.

If you can't get it to look how you want using those settings, then code modification would be required; I'd suggest you post a thread on the WowAce forums for further assistance if you need it.

I'm not sure what you mean by "icons" but Grid doesn't hide any default UI elements. If you want to hide some part of the default UI, you'll need another addon, like HideBlizzard.

Hi, I'm kind of new to this addon and not sure if the following settings can be configured or not. I spent an hour trying to do it but couldn't figure out a way.

I want to scale the 5 group (party layout) wider and bigger in any 5 man group for dungeons, but I also want smaller frames like the default one for raid and battleground.. if you know what I mean, is there a way to save each setting individually?

No, but you can save whole configurations via the profile system. You may be able to find a plugin that can automatically switch between saved profiles based on your current group size or other criteria; otherwise you'll need to switch between profiles manually.

I was able to achieve this somehow to my taste.. thanks! Only problem now is the colors of mana bars from the plugin are now "inverted" hehe... I'll use a status or something for mana... I'm using grid to tank and heal.

Re: Re: Re: Unit Health - Background color

Got a suggestion.

Normally in party, 5 man and 10 man raids I keep the frames in the center of the screen for healing. The problem is in battlegrounds, with 25-40 people in a raid I can't see anything, so what would be nice is if beside each layout you could designate a profile so that when the group size changes, it auto-switches profiles for that situation.

There is at least one plugin that provides this functionality.

Mana bars are provided by a third-party plugin, which I cannot provide support for.

Personally, I believe mana bars are counter to the basic design intent of Grid, and are a waste of screen space and system resources. Most of the time it does not matter how much mana someone has; with mana bars, the information is always there taking up space and adding clutter to the frames whether you need it or not. In any given situation, you will be better served by either the percent-based Low Mana status (eg. if you're a resto shaman, use the status to show when someone is below 76% mana and can fully benefit from Mana Tide) or a plugin that activates a status at a certain fixed value (eg. in the Kaz'rogal encounter, if someone drops below 2000 mana they explode). Conditional statuses are more effective than a traditional bar; they provide more precise information, and they only occupy space and attention when the information is needed.

Drop down menu

Hi Phanx

I've been usign Grid for a while now and I've been very happy with it.
Especially the amount of settings you can change is wonderful. But I've got a problem/bug with one of those.

I've insalled SharedMedia and Phisr's Media Pack so I could change, among others, Grid's texture. But the amount of textures included in the above mentioned packs is gigantic. When I go to the drop down menu in /grid config to change the texture I only see a certain amount. I can't scroll down to see the ones that aren't on my screen.

Is there any other way I can change the texture? Or will you add a different drop down menu in an update?

Best regards
John

Read the tooltip that appears when you move the mouse cursor over the minimap icon (or DataBroker plugin). You should see this:

Click to open the options in a GUI window.
Right-Click to open the options in a drop-down menu.
If you don't see the first line, you should completely delete it and reinstall it from a fresh download, as you are missing the embedded library Grid needs to provide a GUI for configuration.

Your other option is to type "/grid" and use the command-line interface.

I'm currently setting up my UI, and I was wondering if there was a way to preview each of the raid layouts without actually being in a raid with that many people?

I only ask so that I can make sure they all fit into the space I've set aside for raid frames :P

No you can't, and it's always baffled me why there's no test layout for Grid.

This has been asked and answered dozens of times over the years. Grid relies heavily on Blizzard's secure group templates, which do not provide any way to generate frames without having actual units in an actual group. The authors of Grid, myself included, have always felt that adding the amount of code that would be required to manually generate fake frames is not worth the marginal convenience it would provide to some people.

If someone else wanted to write a third-party addon/plugin that hooked into Grid to provide fake frames for configuration, nobody would stand in their way.

Personally, I’ve never found it remotely difficult to roughly configure Grid while solo, and make small tweaks as needed while in a raid. There’s always downtime in a raid, while people drink between pulls, or distribute loot after a boss kill, or just take a 5-minute break. If you’ve taken a few minutes outside of a raid to familiarize yourself with Grid’s menus, it only takes a few seconds to make any change you can think of.

Remember, you don’t have to use “real” settings for configuration. For example, as a mage you can apply Arcane Intellect at any time; if you need to check the size of the center icon, cast Arcane Intellect on yourself, add Arcane Intellect as a buff in the auras menu, and enable Arcane Intellect on the center icon indicator. Once you’re satisfied with the way the center icon looks, disable Arcane Intellect for that indicator, and delete the buff from the auras menu if you want.

If that isn’t good enough for you, you can always invite random people from your guild while they’re doing dailies, or hang out in Alterac Valley.
