About RangeDisplay

Estimated range display. Type /rangedisplay for configuration or /rangedisplay locked to lock/unlock the frames.


RangeDisplay is a simple range display addon. It is using spell range, item range and interact-distance based checks to determine the approximate range to your current target. Due to the whackyness of interact-distance based checks, recent versions only use those when spell/item based checks are not possible . The display can be configured in many ways (displaying only the max range, adding border and background, etc).

Currently you can set up RangeDisplay to show your current range to your target, focus, pet and mouseover units. The mouseover unit range can be anchored to the mouse or placed at a fixed position.

New in v3.8.0: It is possible to add sound notifications to "range sections" (similar to color setting). The sound will be played when entering the section. If two sections have the same sound file attached to them, then the sound is not played again if switching between the two sections.

This sound notification is enabled by default for the target unit's close range section.

Displaying max range only: if you want to display only the maxRange, you need to set Text to "%d" and tick the Reverse option for the section(s).

    Display on Mouse is no where near mouse pointer.  It's placed much farther to the left, by 2-2.5in.  I looked over all available settings and didn't see anything I could edit to correct this issue.   Is there anything I can manually configure to correct this?

  • #310

    1) unlock the RangeDisplay frames (for example type /rangedisplay locked)

    2) move the "mouseover" rectangle near to the green hand icon in the middle of the screen (where you want it to be relative to the cursor)

    3) lock the RangeDisplay frames again ( /rangedisplay locked)

    While in Moonkin and Travel form the ranges for enemies between 25 to melee are incorrect and erratic. Cat/Bear/Caster all appear correct but shifting into Moonkin or Travel breaks it, display two different ranges without ever moving.

    What ranges are displayed exactly? The issue might be that in one form it is possible to provide more accureate range estimate. If the range in one form is 5-10 and in the other it's 5-8 then it's perfectly normal. On the other hand, if the range in one form is 5-10 and in the other it's 20-30 or something else completely different from the first one, then it's a bug. Could you clarify?

    Thank you for fixing the 45 yard problem. :D Once that guy reported what was causing it, it wasn't so bad knowing when I needed to quickly /reloadui to fix it. But man, so glad it's been taken care of.

  • #303

    any chance for a Symbiosis-bugfix?

    enemies = 45yards
    friends = 35yards


  • #304

    Hopefully fixed in v4.2.0

    First off I'd like to say this is a great Addon and I cannot thank you enough for your contribution.

    I was wondering if it is possible to add the ability to have party1/2/3/4/5 just like you have arena 1/2/3/4/5 

  • #302


    This feature could be added, but I'm not sure it would be easy to handle all party-change events (like members going offline, entering dungeons, etc).  It would probably be better to find a unit frame addon that supports range display (or bug your favourite unit frame addon's author to add this feature, it's easy with LibRangeCheck-2.0).

    That said, I might try adding this sometime in the future if I'll have some time.

    Jeeze i must be blind but i can't find the option to show only max range in the newest version. Anyone know where?

    That option went away when I added free form range formating. Now you can set up any text display for the given section, that is interpreted as a format string with two parameters: minRange and maxRange, and there's an additional checkbox: Reverse, which will swap the two parameters.

    So, if you want to display only the maxRange, you need to set Text to "%d" and tick the Reverse toggle.

    hope this makes sense :)

    The 45 yard bug is back now and more aggressive than ever. It's now happening in BG's and a lot more frequently too. I have to reloadui every 3 minutes to fix it. Cry

  • #295

    I`m getting the same error. I`ve noticed that in my settings for "target" the default section is Checked and i can`t uncheck it. I can however alter the colour of this section, and when the bug happens, the color matches the colour i set in the "default section"  which can`t be unchecked.

  • #292

    Still getting the 45 yard range error.
