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).

    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.

    I'm sorry, I have no idea why it fails... If it were a general issue with item checkers, then it'd be stuck at 80yd, not 45, and I don't think I managed to hit on two 45yd range items that are both somehow bugged on the same mob... Guess you'll just have to live with it, until someone can come up with an explanation why it fails... Does it fail for you for the same mob(s) with different characters? Or it fails with a specific character with various mobs?  Does it happen only when you're in a cross-realm group?



  • #300

    Interesting... Does the 45yd bug hits the druid casting the Symbiosis, or the target of the spell? (or both...). Also, does it happen for both friendly and enemy ranges?

    It seems to happen more often in the Windward Isle area. For all I know it could be Jade Forest, but since I got my Cloud Serpent mount the other day, I haven't been back over there, and have also noticed the addon hasn't given me the bug since.

    I only use it on this one char, since I am not leveling any alts for the time being. It's fine if you can't figure it out, it's been behaving. :)

    Just a quick note to thank you for a great addon! Just wondering.. previous release version was 4.1.0 and the lastest has reverted to 4.0.1? :)

  • #290
