What I want my grid to do is to have Clique, to because to function. While there will be 2 to 4 small icons where I able to set a macro to. These macros will be spells that I can use on each character like a cleanse or earth shield or something to that effect. I only have some many fingers and it free up my bindings.
Unless you've hacked Grid to fill your entire screen in a 25-man raid, I can't imagine any clickable buttons inside each Grid frame large enough to (a) click without a microscope and (b) not cover the entire frame.
I'm also not sure how you could possibly have more spells than you have mousebuttons or fingers. My paladin's click-casting bindings are fairly extensive, yet I don't feel that I'm anywhere close to running out of bindings (or fingers):
Shift-Left Click -- Redemption if dead, otherwise Cleanse
Shift-Right Click -- Holy Shock (not used since I'm currently not holy)
Button4 -- Flash of Light
Shift-Button4 -- Hand of Freedom
Ctrl-Button4 -- Beacon of Light (not used since I'm currently not holy)
Button5 -- Holy Light
Shift-Button5 -- Sacred Shield
Ctrl-Button5 -- Lay On Hands
Ctrl-Alt-Button5 -- Divine Intervention
Middle Click -- Hand of Salvation
Shift-Middle Click -- Hand of Protection
If you're concerned about Earth Shield, then I'm even more confused as to how you're having a problem, as my resto shaman has a much smaller number of things to bind:
Also, in case you're not aware, action buttons cannot be hidden or shown based on conditions like a unit's health or buffs, so you would always see the buttons for Cleanse Spirit and Earth Shield, even on units with no dispellable debuffs, or on units when another unit already had your Earth Shield.
Your best bet is probably going to be to take another look at your clickcast binding choices, and fix them to be more sensible.
Alternatively, you could just not bind certain actions to clicks. Riptide is on a cooldown, so you could just target the unit and press a button. Cleanse Spirit isn't used on every fight, so you could do the same for that. Earth Shield doesn't need to be recast that often (30 seconds at most, usually), etc. Everything that I have bound to a click, I also have bound to a normal keystroke... sometimes I dispel by shift-clicking, sometimes I dispel by pressing "C" and clicking, or clicking and pressing "C".
What I was trying to say, is like for example if some one gets a disease, the indicator status shows a box to the color i set it to. Now What if I was able to configure, that status indicator be clickable independently from the healthbar area. So basically I'd have mouse Click Zones, because I can't bind many spells, as I lack digits on both of my hands. It would make it easier for me then to have to. Select Said player, Click my hotbar spell.
And I believe around BC Grid acutually had a similiar functionality with Clique, similar to what I'm talking about.
No, I understood what you want. You want each Grid unit frame to be divided into multiple clickable areas, where the "main" area retains the default functionality, and other smaller areas have different behavior.
However, like I said, it wouldn't work the way you're imagining. In order for the indicator box for Diseases to to be clickable differently than the rest of the frame, the area in which the indicator appears would always be clickable, and would always try to cast Cleanse Spirit on that unit, even when the unit didn't have a Disease, and even when the indicator wasn't shown at all.
You cannot hide or show clickable areas or buttons based on a unit's debuffs, and you cannot change the click action for a clickable area or button while you're in combat. These are restrictions imposed by Blizzard since the Burning Crusade expansion, and addons cannot get around them.
Grid has never included this kind of functionality, as Grid was written specifically in response to the "secure frames" changes Blizzard introduced when TBC was released. Maybe you're thinking of some addon you used before TBC?
Assuming you're right-handed, you may find it helpful to bind spells to your number pad keys as well. Since the number pad is right next to the mouse, you could click on a unit in Grid to select it, and then press a key on the number pad, and that would be less distance to reach.
I somewhat agree with the poster. I don't have a 5-button mouse, and maybe I have better eyes than you, or a larger monitor, but I could easily click on the default corner indicator lights on my screen with relative accuracy.
And I play different classes/roles, and memorizing all the different key-combinations for them (or using middle mouse-push on my scrollwheel) are not exactly easy for everyone. I know some people who pick them up instantly, and some people who never do.
If I knew that a light in the top right meant they were diseased and clicking it would cast cleanse, great. I could have Clique do heals on the whole frame, but the top right corner do cleanse, and I would click it if I knew the fight required cleansing and the light was on. (Obviously, it would still cleanse even if the light was off, but I wouldn't be trying to click up there :) )...
Sure, it wouldn't be useful for everyone, but having a "clickable-indicator" could be useful to a number of people.
Shift, Ctrl and Alt can all be covered by 2 fingers and a thumb, plus a mouse button, so just with 3 modifiers and one mouse button, 8 actions can be performed. Multiply that by the number of mouse buttons you use and you'll have more than enough click+modifier combinations to cover pretty much anything. Arguably Ctrl+Alt+Shift is a bit of a clunky combo to hit so that could be ignored.
I heal on multiple classes, and therefore generally keep the same 'type' of spell on the same click combo. For example, Shift+Left Click for my priest is Flash Heal, for my Shaman is LHW, for my Paladin is FoL. Magic dispels are always Ctrl+Right Click, Disease dispels are always Shift+Right Click, Shields are always unmodified Right Click, etc etc.
I know from the statuses set up in Grid if something that I can dispel needs dispelling, and I have a click-combo to take care of it if it happens. Having to worry about cursor placement within a square would be horrible, especially when using Grid at is default 'compact' size.
