About DHUD for 6.0

DHUD is a highly configurable and customizable HUD addon in the spirit of DHUD, MetaHUD, and others designed to keep your focus in the center of the screen where your character is.

What it is

Player and target health and mana bars, casting bars, pet health and mana bars, druid mana bar in forms, bars with alternative power, spell circles with short player auras, target self auras and cooldowns, extensive target info, and much more.

Short feature list

  • Health Bars are able to display shields, heal absorption and incoming heal effects.
  • Class-specific tracking such as combo point counters, druid mana trackers, Eclipse bar, Holy Power monitoring, warlock alternative resources tracking, and more
  • Lots of DogTag-supported strings for extreme customizability (strings are parsed only once so it won't take much cpu time)
  • Alpha settings for in combat, target selected, etc.
  • Fully customizable bars and counters capable of tracking buff/debuff applications on any unit, spell/ability cooldowns, and the health/mana of any unit you specify.
  • Highly configurable (can totally re-arrange all bars, change text display, etc.)

Slash commands

  • /dhud - opens the configuration UI to tweak any setting
  • /dhud settings <settingName> = <settingValue> - to change setting using command line

Recent changes

  • Addon code have been rewriten and uses OOP design. Cpu and memory consumption is reduced
  • Code is documented and easily readable.
  • Added new features:
  • Health bars are now able to display shields, incoming heal and absorbed heal.
  • Numbers are now truncated if enabled in settings
  • Cooldowns can be shown like it's done with auras
  • Auras whitelists, blacklists and priority lists
  • DHUD Settings addon is also rewrited to support new code
  • And more


If you want to support the addon development tell about it to your friends, the more users will use it - the better. I will update it more regularly as it become easier for me to maintain addon after full rewrite.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: AddOn DHUD attempted to call a protected function (CompactRaidFrame...) during combat lockdown.
  • A: DHUD addon doesn't call any protected functions. Blizzard code can taint itself even without any addons loaded. Good article on this topic:

  • #390

    Please post screenshot of what happens on your screen after opening settings. What is your operating system? If it's mac than it currenly is a known problem, I'll try to fix it on the weekends.

  • #386

    Sorry its complete unusable and im going back to the old BEFORE the big redisign and wait till you have rewritten everything cause upon loading the profil of my main on my alt no matter what i do i allways get the following error on alt:

    Message: Interface\AddOns\DHUD\DHUD_GUI.lua:3782: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)

    So back to DHUDv1550000f for me as the new versions more seems like BETAs...

  • #389

    You copied settings from another character that is set to display resource that is unavailable to your current character (e.g. Death-Knight Runes) . I designed addon so, that it will track only those resources, that your character have. So far this is the only exception that anyone found, so I don't think it can be called beta. For now just reset your profile on your alt. I will fix this problem in the next update.

  • #382

  • #383

    General Tab, second page, untick Show Shields, Heal Absorption, Incoming Heal.

  • #371

    The one thing that I loved about this addon was how easy it was to use. I feel like you made it a bit overcomplicated, but hey, to each his own. Is there a way to disable the borders around the bars like in the previous versions? I guess I'm blind or stupid, because I don't see one. If you've taken it out, please God put it back in. The borders look so ugly around the healh bars.

  • #375

    It still shows the same data that it was showing before rewrite, every feature that was added is optional and can be disabled. Amount of setting has been increased, but I think that this was required step. Borders can be disabled on 2nd page of general tab. Please use version 2.0.50300.38 or later for this to work.

  • #381

    Version .38 is fantastic. I had un-clicked the border option with v.37 and nothing had changed, but I log in after updating this and it looks exactly how I want it to. Thanks!

  • #378

    Uploaded new version one hour ago, curse usually approves it within 2-8 hours.

    where does one get .38-version curse website still only offers version .37?



  • #370

    Reset my profiles, can't resize bars, can't move bars, unchecking things does nothing. Please fix. The last version worked better than this.

  • #374

    Resize should work, offsets were not working. Check new version 2.0.50300.38.
