About HideRaidFrame

Hides the Blizzard Raid Frames

(This logically also disables Raid-Style Party Frames)

Slash Commands (Toggles the Raid Frames): /hr, /hideraid

If you stop using this addon, the Raid Frames won't magically come back!

  • You need to use this AddOn again and enable them with the slash command
  • Or delete/modify each character-specific AddOns.txt in the WTF folder
  • Or use the macro script below

Just give me a macro for toggling the Raid Frames, I don't want to use your addon

/run local f = IsAddOnLoaded("Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames") and DisableAddOn or EnableAddOn for _, v in pairs({"Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames", "Blizzard_CUFProfiles"}) do f(v) end ReloadUI()

tag v1.6

Tagging as v1.6


    - Now shows a notification when the Raid Frames have been successfully enabled/disabled

    Don't use if you have ElvUI installed. Destroyed my whole Interface...

    ElvUI probably tries to do something with the raid frames. The raid frames are basically gone/removed when you use HideRaidFrame, while ElvUI still assumes they exist. You can enable the raid frames again with this script to fix the problem:

    /run for _, v in pairs({"Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames", "Blizzard_CUFProfiles"}) do EnableAddOn(v) end ReloadUI()

    The way HideRaidFrame works is it simply disables the "Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames" addon (without any chance of taint). Addons or UI compilations need to check if these raid frames actually exist before doing anything with them, otherwise it will give errors.

    There is nothing that can be done or fixed from my end. Other addons need to take into account that the Blizzard raid frames might be gone from the global namespace.

    tl;dr ElvUI is trying to access something that doesn't exist (anymore).

    There should be zero chance of any taint now in v1.3 =)

  • #22

    I deleted my WTF folder cause my auctioneer plugin broke the AH and I wasn't seeing it anymore. This plugin stopped working too. I really need this because the blizz default raid frames hurt my eyes. Any way to fix it?

    i hope it helps :p

    Sorry reaper666735, I was wrong.

    Ever since patch 4.2 the party frames seem to be anchored to the Raid Manager, and when that's disabled, nothing anchors the party frames anymore. This should be fixed now in the v1.2 update

    I'm not sure if this change will conflict with other Unit Frame addons though

  • #20

    i will ofc report any and all errors should it occur  , and you can then see if it is related to hide raid frame or not :)

    For Azeroth !

  • #14

    since 1.1 and the standard Hard Disable option enabled , the Party frame's are also hidden randomly , could you please Fix this little bug ^^  (  if it is indeed a bug lol )  , i just want to keep seeing my party frame but when it goes raid to hide that Blizzard standard raid frame as i use Healing addons for that :)

    For Azeroth !

  • #15

    Do you have the "Use Raid-Style Party Frames" option checked? As in, you're using the raid frames for your party frames too?

    • If you want to use the default party frames, then the "Use Raid-Style Party Frames" option should be unchecked.

      Note: The "Raid Profiles" options panel for said option gets removed with the "hard disable", so you'd have to either:
      A) Uncheck the "hard disable" option first before accessing the "Raid Profiles" options panel and then do a /reload

      B) Otherwise you can try this script:
      /console useCompactPartyFrames 0  
    • If you want to use the raid style party frames, then I don't know any real solution. Since it's essentially still the raid frames and you will still get the same kind of taint.

      If the "Use Raid-Style Party Frames" option was checked,  the raid style party frames will already be hidden ofcourse.

      A workaround might be to check the "hard disable" option everytime you are in a raid, and uncheck it everytime you are in a party.
    Sorry if I didn't understand what you meant and for the overly use of bolded text ...

    i mean the normal party frame on the left , under your character portrait is gone with the Hard Disable , and i have none of the options in addon checked ( well had to uncheck Hard Disable :p ) so i dunno if this makes more sense :)

    For Azeroth !

  • #13
    • Since the v1.1 release, the Hard Disable option is now enabled by default

    This will remove any taint, but in turn there is a chance other addons that rely, modify, or also try to disable the Raid Frames will throw errors

    • Please use this script if you want to use the Raid Frames again, in case you removed HideRaidFrame:
    /run for _, v in ipairs({"Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames", "Blizzard_CUFProfiles"}) do EnableAddOn(v) end ReloadUI()

    OK, so.. to hide the Blizzard Raid Frames, do I need to check or uncheck those 2 boxes? It's really not that obvious if the checkboxes are to show or to hide the respective options..

    Oh, and, for me, checking them resulted in them frames showing up all over my Grid. -_-

  • #12

    To hide them you need to uncheck them. Sorry for not making it obvious in the options

    The idea behind this was to provide configuration options in case players wanted to hide either the "Raid Manager" or the "Raid Container", and that they otherwise wouldn't be bothered about using the options

    1x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "HideRaidFrame" tried to call the protected function "CompactRaidFrame2:Show()".
    !BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
    <in C code>
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:276: in function "CompactUnitFrame_UpdateVisible"

    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:46: in function <FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:43>



    near same error as viper , it might be time for the solution to remove the weak taint thingy :p
