    Grid2LuaTexts added with kind permission from Shefki and ckknight of PitBull4 fame. Thanks guys!

    This plugin currently provides formatting for health-current. Only the default built in formats are provided. Custom LuaTexts and or event handling are a longer term project. I think mana and a couple of the name formats can be ported as well.

    The upgrade should be transparent. "Grid2" is the current format.

    1. Grid has never extended the healing bar beyond the edges of the unit frame...

    Actually at one point this is how healing was shown, although it may have been a bug. It was somewhat ugly as you say, but on the other hand it had a certain amount of information that is now lacking when it gets truncated.

    Quote from Drakakarian
    ...I am interested in when Weakened soul will fall off people. Is it possible to set it as (for example) center text 2 and have it display a timer instead of Weakened?...

    If you can stomach alpha software and are ok with setting things up from scratch whenever changes require that, you can give Grid2 a try. All Grid2 text indicators can show duration and / or stack.

    Changes were made that require a reset of your SV and use of the latest versions of everything. http://www.wowace.com/addons/grid2/ has the instructions as well as a list of up to date plugins to use and which not to use.

    The buttons for splitting are missing "15". This is much more useful than say 7 etc. if you need to drop something to make room.

    All right final question then is what location and square or icon? I checked in a version with them at bottom-right but that probably needs to change.

    ...My four indicators in Grid are ... Ancestral Fort / Inspiration (if I raidheal but am supposed to keep it on the tanks)...

    These two are missing from the shaman setup atm.

    Should they be single statuses or a group status (detect the presence of either)?

    Or should they be added to the other mitigation buffs, or both?

    ...mitigative cooldowns ... for all four tanks, as well as some other not-quite-random things (bubble, forbearance, hand of sacrifice, safeguard, dispersion, cloak of shadows, etc.) ...

    I added mitigation, mitigation-shield, mitigation-health as group buffs. shield and health are the tank ones, the rest are in mitigation.

    I think their home could be 3 squares in the bottom right corner. Either 3 in a row or the classic grid corner-bottom-right, corner-bottom-right-top and corner-bottom-right-left.

    I have never been able to get health + heals to work in Grid2 with inverted colors and I certainly have not fixed the underlying issue nor has Jerry. The current layering and setup is just wrong for this. Right now these are two separate indicators but they really need a much tighter integration since they depend on each other for inverted to work. At the very least they need to swap layers which they currently do not do and their layout needs to depend on the inverted setting.

    ...I prefer everyone's bar to be the same color [with a] different color (white)...background when they lose health...(

    This needs a change to the bars. Right now the black is hard coded in.

    Changes for squares and icons:
    *Border size and color added
    *Size settings made uniform.
    *Note that the border size required to look good or even show up depends on your ui scale vs monitor resolution vs indicator size. Grid2 has no realistic way to calculate this so you need to adjust to taste yourself.
    *Requires reset

    Also fixed is an issue that prevented Grid2 from working as the only mod loaded.

    Testing that issue showed me the horrible nature of the options UI without the ability to resize its window. (ie. the basic blizz ui sux). One of my many mods allows it to resize though so its not an issue for me. Does anyone have recommendations for mods to make it re-sizable?

    I don't mind pitching in on the Grid2IndicatorButton. Just keep in mind I'm not the most elegant lua-coder out there nor the fastest.

    Well there is a proof of concept checked in. It works ooc for sure. The rest is up to you. The test code has a button for druid rejuv. If you use another class you will need to add a different spell for them.

    posted a message on Grid2 How to make a custom Layout
    Final note: the variety of possibly useful layouts people want is huge. Therefore the built in ones will remain limited. However you can make custom ones as described, and someday there will be an editor so you can use the options settings to make custom ones.

    If anyone wants to volunteer to write the ui for this, post in this thread.

    posted a message on Grid2 How to make a custom Layout
    Quote from Phanx
    You can easily add your layout from an external addon without modifying any Grid(2) files.

    1) Create a folder called Grid2MyLayout in your Addons folder.

    2) Add two files to it:

    Grid2MyLayout.lua
    Grid2Layout:AddLayout("My By Role Per Group", {
    	meta = {
    		raid25 = true,
    		raid15 = true,
    		raid10 = true,
    		party = true,
    		arena = true,
    	},
    	defaults = {
    		showSolo = true,
    		showPlayer = true,
    		groupBy = "ROLE",
    		groupingOrder = "MAINTANK,MAINASSIST", 
    		unitsPerColumn = 5,
    		maxColumns = 1,
    		allowVehicleTarget = true,
    	},
    	[1] = {
    		groupFilter = "1",
    	},
    	[2] = {
    		groupFilter = "2",
    	},
    	[3] = {
    		groupFilter = "3",
    	},
    	[4] = {
    		groupFilter = "4",
    	},
    	[5] = {
    		groupFilter = "5",
    	},
    })



    Grid2MyLayout.toc
    ## Interface: 30300
    ## Title: Grid2MyLayout
    ## Notes: My Custom Layout(s) for Grid2.
    
    ## Dependencies: Grid2
    
    Grid2MyLayout.lua


    3) Restart WoW.

    4) You can repeat the Grid2Layout:AddLayout code (with a different name) if you want more than one custom layout. use something like My xxxx for the name so it will not clash with built in layouts.

    Note that your layout does not show pets. I hope you are not a healer.

    So there was punting on doing Julith's GridStatusControlPipes or whatever its predecessor was and now I think I found some possible cases for it. For a warrior you want to know if your shout buff is up or not. So the presence of either Battle Shout or Commanding shout done by you, or the presence of Blessing of Might or Commanding shout by another warrior respectively.

    This could be handled by a special cased Grid2StatusAuraGroup. Or by upgrading Grid2StatusAuraGroup for more complex groups. The latter is probably still better than boolean logic on statuses + Jerry did not like the way it unlinks statuses from their indicator & I agree.

    Meanwhile GridStatusControlPipes has evolved and now supports the following:
    • show or hide status on key press (KeyGuard)
    • show or hide status in or out of combat (CombatGuard)
    • convert duration status (like aura duration) to min/max value status to be able to display remaining time of auras on bar indicators (like GridManaBars) (ToBarFilter)
    • filter status for specific classes (ClassGuard)
    • convert color of status to class color (ClassColorFilter)
    • aura filter (can be used as debuff white list) (AuraGuard)
    • convert value to text (like health) (ToTextFilter)
    • threshold filter for values (ThresholdGuard)

    So what if anything from this would be good in the core without breaking the paradigm: a status attached to an indicator means it is enabled?

    • The key press stuff seems interesting. Adding the ability to require a modifier key (Ctrl Shift Alt) to be down for a status to be active can be added fairly easily, but is it useful? Adding and removing a status based on a key press is more complex but not out of the question. This ability will be needed in the core for spec changes anyway. Another approach is fight specific settings so this is automatic instead.
    • Combat / non-combat can be added where it makes sense. I am unsure what a good example would be. Eating and Drinking buffs is all I can think of.
    • Convert duration status is already handled. Class filters can be added more broadly as well.
    • convert color of status to class color. No idea what the use case is.
    • Aura filter. It makes sense to do this. Some debuffs can be beneficial (lose armor but gain AP type things) and some are curable but should not be cured.
    • convert value to text. I have been thinking of making a LuaTexts status. In general conversion is not needed in Grid2 except for formatting changes of the text.
    • threshold filter for values (don't show a status until its value crosses this threshold). Easy to implement. Is it something people want?
