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.

Alpha versions are development snapshots. They may be buggy, or they may not work at all. They may erase your settings. They are not tested thoroughly, if at all. In many cases, I write code while I'm at work, and commit it to the repository to test later when I'm at home. I do not provide any support for alpha versions. This is even stated in bold text in the addon description here:

If you downloaded Grid from wowace.com, or through the Curse Client, please do not post here. The WoWInterface releases are actually tested. Anything from wowace.com is bleeding-edge and may or may not work.
If you are not comfortable using untested, unstable, and unsupported development snapshots, don't download alpha versions. Stick to beta and release versions.

Range checking is being rewritten, and is more likely than not to be broken in any given alpha version at the moment. If you do not understand what alpha versions are, don't use them.

I want to see everyones health, even when out of range for heals. I want to see everyone who has X debuff or Y Buff, even when out of range. I just want their Frame Alpha to fade when they are out of range for me to heal them.

That was with 1406, so it was an Alpha version. I'm reverting back to 1403. Might want to consider adding the range check as an option for the Frame Alpha before updating 1406 to Beta or Release status.
Yes, this is why I came here to try and figure why i no longer can see who is out of range. I have to revert back too I can't be wasting time trying to heal people who are out of my range. Can you put the range function back in the new version?

The grid on the left side ... How in the world do I get rid of that?
Grid only makes one set of frames, and I’m not familiar with the UI you linked, sorry. Have you tried asking the UI’s uploader?

kubasniak:
I have checked ENABLE ICON COOLDOWN FRAME and ENABLE ICON STACK TEXT and both DOESN'T WORK. I don't know why, I downloaded a plugin GridIndicatorSideIcons and I checked the same both options and it doesn't work too. I see the renew icon but I don't see a cooldown frame on it. Same with cooldown text plugin for grid. Nothing works. It works when I check Configuration Mode then I see stacks and cooldown frame.
The icon cooldown frame and icon stack text are part of the default “Center Icon” indicator, so the options to show them or not won’t have any effect on indicators added by plugins. Also, even if you enable them, they are only shown if the currently active status includes duration or stack information. Which statuses have you tried on the Center Icon indicator?

Also, I’m not sure what you mean by “Configuration Mode”, since Grid doesn’t have one!

nammerduong:
I was able to set it so that when I join a dungeon group or any normal party, the default party frames wont appear.
Grid doesn’t hide any default UI frames. Maybe your primary unit frame addon (player and target frames) had that feature? If not, you can always install HideBlizzard.

Just out of curiosity would it be possible to add additional frame anchors, top center and bottom center? Corners are fine and dandy, unless you're OCD like me and want it centered each and every time. :P

[Edit] Nevermind, when I looked into the anchor menu the center option originally was not there. I'm sure it's a bug on my end, but updating Grid has the anchor properly displaying and my unit frames are centered again. Sorry.

The grid on the left side ... How in the world do I get rid of that?

Well, the one at the bottom can be solved with a reboot(for now) but THAT GRID ON THE LEFT IS BOTHERING ME SO HARD.

What is that??

I currently use this UI.

Grid Frame Hanging Below Background

I'm having a problem where my Grid unit frame boxes are literally hanging below the Grid frame background. I can't seem to figure out how to fix this either.

So say you have 2 columns of 5 rows. For some reason the first 2 rows are empty, and then it puts the other 5 below those, thus hanging below the Grid frame background image. =(

Also, this incident is only happening when using the
"By Class 10"
Any suggestions? I've tried clearing Grid and reinstalling it but no avail.

party frames

this may seem like a stupid question..
I used grid back during WotLK and I was able to set it so that when I join a dungeon group or any normal party, the default party frames wont appear.
I don't know how to do that now...
can someone please help.

Unfortunately, Grid is the only addon that I can find that supports permanent custom lists. I'd be happy to modify the code if I could figure out where to make the change(s). Care to offer any hints?

Grid crashing issue that ALOT of people are talking about...
Misaligned frames are not a "crash", in any sense of the word. The issue shown in your screenshot should be resolved as of r1400; try deleting Grid from your addons folder and reinstalling it by hand from a fresh download.

If the problem still persists, see the existing ticket in the ticket tracker (there's a link in main description) and post a reply with the requested information. Neither I nor anyone I know personally (eg. I have direct access to their computer, or I can swap files with them and walk them through debugging procedures and tests over the phone/Ventrilo) has seen this issue since r1400, so at this point there's not really any reasonable way for me to do anything further if "there's a problem" is all the information I'm given.

Chimaeron

My guild is on Chimaeron and I'd like to create an indicator for anyone who is currently UNDER 10k health.

I am pretty new to Grid so I'm looking for some tips on how to do this.

thanks.

Request - please allow wider unit frames

I like to have long, somewhat thin unit frames. The reason I need this is a bit complex, so I won't go into it here, unless you'd like to know.
In any case, I have the unit frames as wide as they will go (100) and have the scale at the maximum setting (double I think) and they are still not quite wide enough. Would it be easy for you to allow the slider for width to be twice what it is now?

Thanks.

And reloadingUI doesn't fix it, you have to restart the game.

No. You can uncheck "Use class colors" for the Unit Health status, and that will let you make the bars all gray, but the foreground color is always derived from the background color (or vice versa, if you have the invert option on). I have no plans to change this.
Okay, no problem.

Post a ticket over on CurseForge and attach your Grid saved variables, and state which profile you are using. Without seeing your actual settings, all I can suggest is checking to make sure someone actually has that buff on them (since the only way the status would show when you check "Show if missing" would be if they don't have the buff).
It's working now, I shift-clicked the spell in my spellbook to insert it in grid which came up with [Beacon of Light], I deleted it again and just typed Beacon of Light myself without the [] and that does work.
