Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.7.1653
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 “/grid” for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.


Need Help?

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 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 English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 game clients.

Grid is translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), 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 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.


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.

Is gridstatusrole still maintained or is it maintained by someone outside of grid team? After 3.3.5 I've been having some problems with gridstatusrole. Sometimes a role color changes its opacity to 0%, for example all ranged unit frames go from bright blue to dark blue without any action from me. When trying to change the color with the color picker tool, I get a lua error:

"Message: Interface\AddOns\GridStatusRole\GridStatusRole.lua:80: attempt to index global 'GridStatus' (a nil value)

Locals:"

I have deleted the entire wtf folder and configured grid and gridstatusrole from scratch and I still get this error when trying to change the role color. Would it be possible to update Grid and Gridstatusrole to fit 3.3.5?

Or even integrate the role plugin to grid itself? Many healers appreciate to see tanks as red and melee as yellow etc.

GridStatusRole is a third-party plugin, and is not maintained by the Grid team. Error messages or other problems relating to third-party plugins should be reported on the plugin's ticket tracker or download page; even if the plugin is maintained by someone who also helps maintain Grid, it is a separate addon, and any problems with it are totally separate from Grid itself.

Hi,
I recently decided to give this addon a try, but to be honest I find the whole layout system a bit annoying. I want to see all raid members, regardless of which raid difficulty is set. Do I have to set all layouts to 40 man? But I'd rather the backdrop didn't expand to fit a full 40 man raid. Can this be made auto adjusted? Or is there any way to hide it except setting background and border alpha to 0?

Thanks

It sounds like you may be better served by one of the auto-layout plugins. Or, you could write your own layout. Otherwise, setting the backdrop and border alpha to 0 is the intended method of hiding the background.

Is there a way to disable the background gradient? I'm currently deleting lines in the .lua's like a 3-year old playing minesweeper. A bit off idiot-proof GUI for this would be nice.

At this time there are no plans to add additional GUI options for configuring the background. You can change the backdrop by editing the appropriate SetBackdrop call in GridFrame.lua. If you need more detailed help, post a thread on the forums.

Thanks, I found a suitable plugin.

Another thing; any plans to add a range check that uses the 40 yard UnitInRange function, that any class could use? Or are you (or anyone else) aware of such a plugin?

UnitInRange isn't 40 yards; it's more like 38, and it's what's used by the default 38-yard range check. However, if your class has a friendly spell with a 40-yard range (such as a healing spell), that will be used instead, and you won't be given a choice between 38 and 40 yards. But, if you're on a class that doesn't have a 40-yard spell, it will fall back on UnitInRange and give you a 38-yard range check.

The range check module is "smart", in that you can enable the 38-yard check on your rogue, and the 40-yard check on your paladin, and when you're on your paladin, Grid will only check the 40-yard range, not both ranges.

Oh, my bad. Thought it said on wowprogramming.com it's 40 yards, but I realise now it does say "around" 40 yards. Wonder why it's not exactly 40...

Edit: And also my bad for not realising you already used it. Searched for it, but searched in the wrong file.

Probably the same "reason" the inspect and follow distances are "around" 11 and 28 yards. I'd imagine the development process at Blizzard went something like this:

Dev #1: Hey guys, I'm writing the range check function, should it be 35 yards or 40 yards?
Other Devs: Uhh... I don't know. No idea. Good question.
Dev #2: Let's roll a D6!
Everyone Else: Okay!
Dev #2 rolls a 3 (1-6).
Dev #2: So, 35 + 3 = 38, sound good?
Other Devs: Sure, whatever.
Dev #1: Okay, cool.
Dev #1 implements the range function with a 38-yard check.

Hello,

Every time some players quits/enters the raid, Grid causes game to freeze for about half a second to update Grid's window..

I'm not using any external Grid addons...

Any ideas why this is happening? Is this only happening with me? Please help.
Thank you.

I've gotten similar reports from a few other people as well, but unfortunately I have never experienced this issue in the 3+ years I've used Grid, and haven't been able to reproduce it with saved settings files from the people who are experiencing the issue.

There's a ticket open over on the WowAce ticket tracker that you may want to keep an eye on:

http://www.wowace.com/addons/grid/ti...frame-lockups/

In the meantime, you could try resetting your Grid settings, and see if that helps.

Hello Phanx,

I tried to isolate the problem and here's what I found out:

- I disabled ALL other addons, leaving only "Grid" enabled.
- I'm running WoW on a i7-930 processor, Geforce GTX470, and with a pretty clean Windows 7 system using latest Geforce video drivers as of August 1st.
- I reseted Grid settings to default.

Problem still happens, but the freeze duration when someone enters/leaves raid/party is not 0.5 sec as I thought, it is something like 0.3 secs.

Maybe you could write a debug version of the addon to help us find out where in the code the problem is?

Thank you.

Unfortunately that doesn't really help me, as I have no way to duplicate your hardware and software configuration, and I have had no luck reproducing the issue myself even with default Grid settings and no other addons enabled, on any of the three machines I have access to.

The person who submitted the ticket I linked on WowAce had some ideas about which parts of the code were causing the issue; you might try commenting out the lines mentioned there and seeing if that does anything for you.

I ever find myself without a dozen other things to do, I may see if I can find someone who can reproduce it and wants to spend some time with me playing whack-a-mole in the dark trying to locate the cause, but that isn't really something that couldn't be done by anyone with Notepad and a hyphen key, and doesn't even guarantee a timely solution, or even any solution.
