Grid in a 25-player raid

Grid is the original compact unit frame addon.

The compact grid of units lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. Grid is designed to show you only what you need to know, and not overload you with irrelevant information. It is highly configurable, letting you choose exactly what is shown, and how it's shown. There are also many plugins that add even more features!

For options, type /grid, right-click the tab on the Grid layout frame, or right-click the Grid icon on your minimap or DataBroker display.

    There should already be a tooltip when you hover the mouse cursor over each option.

    @Phanx: Go

    Thank you for the clarification. I don't know what's possible, but might I suggest a tooltip or caption next to/beneath (or even better, incorporated into the string that labels the threshhold field?) would be very useful and might save other users frustration or confusion.

    @saido: Go

    High: > high Medium: > low and <= high Low: <= low

    However, I agree that high should probably be >= instead of >, so I'll probably change that in the next release.

    Could I get a clarification about "threshold" ? I am using the feature that changes the text color based on number of stacks (for the Darkening and Blacking Soul debuffs on Xavius). If I want the text to turn red at three stacks, do I set the threshold at 2 or 3? ( I had originally assumed that I should set it to 3 ( "red if stack = 3") but after using it I'm suspecting that the logic really is "red if stack is > 2" (and thus I should set the threshold to 2 if I want the text to turn red at 3 stacks). ~ Can you clarify?)

    P.S. Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere: I checked the FAQ and some other posts but didn't see anything that pointed clearly to an answer for me.

    I'm having a slight issue, outside in the open world, I'm not able to show the whole raid, it only shows my current group.

    @stefanw1337: Go

    Not possible. Random players out in the world do not have unit IDs, other than temporarily while you are targeting or mousing over them.

    So I want to have a Grid for random players out in the world. Could you make this change, or even make it as an option?

    Healing does not show up correct, showing 1.1k instead of 1.9k. Also, health does not update fast enough, so i'm almost never able to see what hp anyone has got. (Using Version Grid-r79901.16 from WoWace Files, in 3.0.2)

    @ Jlawler Make sure you also de-select click through grid frame before you unlock the frame.

    I am having my own problem. Everytime i log in the position of grid resets to the middle left of my screen. Am i missing something or is this a bug with this version? Version 1.30000.2008101802 i'm using windows XP
