Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.3.3
by: Phanx, Trelis

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.

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other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and Curse, or through the Curse Client or Minion, may be outdated or modified, and are not supported at all.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

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 7.0.3.3
  • Really fixed the frames sometimes appearing behind the backdrop (ticket #840)

Version 7.0.3.2
  • Updated detection for dispellable debuffs (ticket #841)
  • Fixed the frames sometimes appearing behind the backdrop (ticket #840)
  • Fixed the frames disappearing if an invalid layout was selected (ticket #835)
  • Auras:
    • The default statuses for Grace, Earth Shield, Eternal Flame, Sacred Shield, and Weakened Soul have been removed, since these buffs (and debuff) were removed from the game.
    • New statuses have been added for Atonement, Beacon of Faith, and Clarity of Will.

Version 7.0.3.1
  • Fixed ticket 834 Show offline option broken. Thanks Samuelreus.
  • Fixed ticket 833 Layout none in non-English locale. Thanks Elnarfim.
  • Package with libraries should include new LibResInfo for ticket 828.
  • Mark code for splitGroups as debug in Layouts because the option is marked as debug. Should fix odd behavior for people who had option enabled before the option was disabled.

Version 7.0.3.0-beta
  • Updated for WoW 7.0 (Legion)
  • Added options for offline and wrong zone groups

Please post in the Lua/XML Help forum for help with writing or changing addon code. I read and respond to almost every thread posted there, but this page is for support of the official release version of Grid only.

There's zero chance I will ever add that kind of border in Grid itself, but the code in this forum thread should still work just fine today, though it will need adjustments to work with whatever border addon you're using. If you need more help with that, post in the forum thread.

Edit: 08-18-16 (solved)
nvm I have figured out how to

at Grid/Frame.lua line 148 add this
Code:
  	CreateBorder(frame, 12, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2)
at Grid/Indicator/Border.lua line 54 add this
Code:
  	ColorBorder(frame, color.r, color.g, color.b)
at Grid/Indicator/Border.lua line 63 add this
Code:
  	ColorBorder(frame, 1, 1, 1)
you must have installed !Beautycase ...

Phanx again... thanks you so much

tip: dont use white for "your target" status

Why bother telling me you'll stop using the addon if you didn't intend for that to motivate me to take action to avoid it happening? That's exactly what a threat is; it doesn't need to be violent or extreme to qualify.

I played for 10 years, so the fact that I don't play now is irrelevant. I understood your request just fine. I still don't think it's a good or sensible explanation. Again, if you don't care enough about the raid to see everyone, why not just turn off the raid frames entirely in that case? No need to log out or reload the UI to disable the addon, just set the layout to "None". You can even macro a toggle.

Another option would be to resize your raid frames so having 40 of them on the screen for the 5 minutes it takes to kill a world boss isn't such a hardship (if you're not a healer, you really don't need full-size raid frames) or un-clutter the rest of the UI so you have more than a 2-inch space in which to slot your raid frames. My eyesight is terrible, and I still have plenty of room for 40 raid frames without covering up anything.

If you think I "threatened" anything anywhere in my post, you must be confused as to what "threat" really means. I simply stated that I would stop using the addon--I'm not holding you hostage, nor did I demand that you fix this issue at this immediate moment.

I recognize that you and every other wow addon dev are busy people, so you can spare us all your life story.


If you had bothered to actually understand (and not just read) my statement, you'd know that my explanation actually does make sense. I only care about having 20 people on my mythic team, but I do join random flex heroics and world bosses that, more times than not, have greater than 20 people in the raid. I'd prefer not having to disable Grid every time I join one of these, though I don't expect you to understand that since you apparently don't even play.

I'm always amused when people threaten to stop using an addon if some change they want isn't made to it, like that will have any effect on me whatsoever.

That said, if you'd bothered to read the addon description and click the link to the ticket tracker, there's already a feature request ticket for manual group filters, and that ticket is already marked as accepted, which means the feature you want is already on the to-do list. As to when it will happen, there is no specific ETA. I have a full time job, I have other responsibilities and hobbies besides Grid, I haven't even played WoW or had an active subscription in about 9 months now, and I'm not even done updating all 50 of my addons for 7.0, so adding new features to Grid when it works just fine already is a pretty low priority. Stassart is currently helping out with Grid, but he also has a job and other things to do, so I don't know when he may have time to work on it either.

If you want it to happen faster, there are two things you can do:

1 - Learn WoW addon programming and submit a patch.

2 - Pay my salary so I can quit my job and have lots of time to work on Grid.

If you can't/won't do either of those things, no amount of begging or threatening will accomplish anything.

(Though your explanation doesn't really make any sense. If you don't care about raid frames enough to have raid frames for all of your raid members, why do you care about having raid frames for any of your raid members?)

I think you are misunderstanding what people are asking for with the group settings.

Some people may want dynamic group sizing, but I, and it seems a few others, do not.

Due to how my UI is set up, I don't want to see more than 25 people in grid. I do not want it to scale to 40 even if there are 40 people in my group. I am not a healer, and I will never care about a group larger than 25 because of mythics, which is even fewer than 25.

We want the option to pick 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 again. With how the dynamic setting works, I join a 40 man world boss raid and grid instantly fills my screen. I have never wanted this.


Example: http://i.imgur.com/w00Zyj6.jpg
You can see that my mythic group is obviously 20, but I have my UI set up to show at most 25 (you can see the 21st person at the bottom).


I have been using Grid since Burning Crusade, and I love the addon, but I'm afraid I'll have to drop if it this fixed group size feature is not added back in.

No, it's not set to 40 man. It's set to "automatic" -- if there are 25 players in your group, you should see a layout sized for 25 players; if there are 8 players in your group, you should see a layout sized for 10 players; etc. If you're seeing the layout sized incorrectly in some situation, please provide more information -- where were you? what kind of group were you in? how many players were in the group? what did Grid look like (include a screenshot)? what did you expect to see instead?

Probably related to ticket #835, in which case the issue is most likely that you were using a rather outdated version before, and Grid is now trying to load a named layout that doesn't exist, and it's fixable by going into your options and choosing a new layout. Future versions will detect this situation and fix it automatically.

If that doesn't help, please click that red BugSack icon and look for any errors from Grid. If there are more than one, just post the first one (not the first displayed, which is actually the last [most recent] one).

instead of this : http://i.imgur.com/IkFIz9o.jpg

I have not played for a few month but just came back like a week ago and it didn't work since.
Do i have to delete it and reinstall it completely?
