Where are you talking about specifically?

Health values are displayed as actual values in all unit frames to the best of my knowledge. You are correct about mana however, in most unit frames.

yes it displayes the players health example ( 15000/15000 ) but on the accual grafic of the health and mana bar it says 100% just wanted this to say the exact amout of health and mana instead of the percentage

thanks for reply

Then you would need to edit the unit skins in [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > UnitPanels > * > nUI_UnitSkin*.lua ] and move the text to where you want it to be.

i too have a need for nui to show me how much mana i actually have / have left instead of just a percentage. i love nui it has all the tools i use while playing and is very easy to use and looks amazing but it drives me absolutely nuts not knowing how much mana i actually have. as a resto druid i've gotten so used to seeing my actual mana value to gage when to pot or sit back and regen a bit and overall know how much healing i can put out before slowing my casting or healing based on that value.

i'll be honest i know absolutely nothing about changing addon coding , and would really appreciate any help you can give me in this. or perhaps there is another mod out there that will work alongside nui to add this function to this beautiful addon.

ty very much for your time

The total mana (power) amount is already displayed on the HUD along with percent mana (power). The percent was put in the unit frames only as an aid to those who do not use the HUD. It is possible to display the total amount instead of percent if you're one of those... keeping in mind that space is at a premium in most of the unit frames. You will need to edit the skin for the frames in question to do so, however, as there is no GUI config for all of these frames and features yet.

For example, if you want to see current mana remaining in your solo player unit frame instead of percent mana, then you would edit [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > UnitPanels > Solo > nUI_UnitSkin_SoloPlayer.lua ] -- look for the ["Power"] section and change "pct_power =" to read "cur_power =" and voila, you'll be looking at the current power instead of percent.

There's two caveats to that... 1) if you do this, then the next time you update your version of nUI, you'll have to do it again. Until nUI's support for full skinning is enabled, you have to edit source to make changes instead of editing your saved variables, so that's a problem. 2) the size of the remaining mana text is larger (longer) than the size of the percent mana text which means it will overlap the power bar and the right edge of the unit frame sometimes
