I don't think GridStatusIncomingHeals has the functionality to display the amount of incoming heals as shaded health bar. Plus, I didn't even know there's a GridStatusIncomingHealth (I wonder why these two modules aren't merged).
Uhm, I made the GridStatusIncomingHeals module mainly as an extension to the normal IncomingHeals addon, and it's main functionality is to add a numerical indicator showing how much is people going to get healed for, using it as something else but a text-indicator I hadn't really concidered much yet :)
The reason why I made my addon was that I didn't know GridStatusIncomingHealth existed, does it not work for you Acarya? I'm not 100% sure of exactly what you're asking for, but I can try to add it if it's within my reach as a coder :)
Thank you for your answers Maia and wT.
I got GridStatusIncomingHealth to work when soloing, but it gave me about 900 errors in bugsack when doing 1 Eye of the Storm, in addition to making some squares totally green or red with no text. However, I see a lot of potential in this module, and merging it with GridStatusIncomingHeals, would just be, well, totally awesome. :)

Thing is I have name as text1 and deficit,offline warning and death warning as text2.
This doesn't give me much room for an numerical estimation of incoming heals but a health bar border that's faded is ideal, giving me a quick visual impulse to decide whether or not I am focusing on that target.
I am gonna post Julith that you are up to adding GSIHealth to your project. :)
Someone has to tell me that there is a topic about my mod in this forum xD
If we want to merge GSIHeals and GSIHealth I would need a SVN account at wow-ace at first (I requested one 4 days ago, didn't get an answer by now). Or I would have to send every change I would like to make to wT xD
But in general I would have no problem with merging both of them. Then I could focus myself at the ExtraBar which is not a Grid-State and should not be added to the merge.
I don't mind merging the two addons at all, I made this addon initially out of need for IncomingHealsLib interface for Grid which is used by most of my guilds healers, if there's other people also interested then cool.
Better not clutter up the SVN with near-identical addons anyway.
I'll try to PM you in the following days Julith regarding the addons.
By the way, at the moment I'm trying to hack in together a PerfectRaid module/plugin/whateveryoushouldcallit for IncomingHeals ;)
GridStatusIncomingHealth is only one part of my addon. It only provides the Health + incoming health as status to Grid. If you want to have the faded bar behind the healthbar you will need "ExtraBar". The zip-files at wow-interface of my addon includes both addons. But since I got my svn-account just yesterday I could only upload GSIHealth by now. (Blame my guild mades who needed a Healer :)
I'm not quite shure why I divided it in two seperate addons. But this way it will be easier to merge GSIHeals+GSIHealth, I think.
Ok, gave it another try. WAU is still not pulling down IncomingHealsLib, I had to install it separately.
Anyway, the bars are still black. The are black immediately upon logging in. I have all the settings correct. I noticed that when I toggled off IH:Health in ExtraBar I got my correct colors back again. Toggling it on made my health bar black again. It seems to me that the ExtraBar is being applied over my Grid health bar instead of behind it.
Gave this another go, I was still getting the black health bars. So I deleted my Grid saved variables. The bar was then the right color, but the module did not work. I inverted the bar colors and it worked. Does this addon only work when inverted bar colors is on?
