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).

    Is there any way to change how far the "mouseover" information is anchored from the mouse cursor? I'd like to have mine right next to the cursor rather than a few inches below it. Cheers
  • #260
    Sure, just unlock the frames (/rangedisplay locked) and position the green rectangle of the "mouseover" unit relative to the green hand at the center of the screen. When ready, lock the frames again (with /rangedisplay locked, for example).

    how to do "28-30" like on the screenshot?
    my RangeDisplay shows "25-30" and "30-35" only but not "28-30" or not "30-32"
  • #257

    That screenshot is from an earlier release where I still mixed the "interact" based checks with the spell based checks. The 28yd range comes from an interact based check.

    Since then I found that mixing the different checks causes some issues (they're handled differently by the game), so I only use the interact based checks when the spell/item based checks are not available.

    Ok i have used this addon before and i like it a lot...but now i have a problem with the mouseover aspect of the addon....when ever i mouseover a target...the range displayed is atleast 5cm above the there anyway i can set the height at which the range is displayed so that the value appears right next to the cursor & not at a significant distance away from it...ty...great addon btw =)

    Unlock the rangedisplay frames (with "/rangedisplay locked" for example) then position the mouseover unit frame relative to the "shadow cursor" (a green hand in the center of the screen), then lock the frames again (with "/rangedisplay locked")

    will this display vertical range?
  • #255
    If your target is above/below you, it'll show vertical range, too ;)
  • #250
    Wow 4.1 adds the feature of displaying the target and focus on the minimap. Can RangeDisplay use this new information to compute coordinates and calculate an exact range?
  • #251
    No, addons can't do anything with the minimap blips, unfortunately.

    Hey just got the Whale Shark achieve thanks to this. Circle kiting between 10-13 and 13-15. Worked like a charm.
  • #247
    can i change it to display only 1 number, the exact distance in yards, instead of "x of y" ?
  • #249
    No it cannot display an exact range.
    There is no in-game method by which that can be done, only whether you are in or out of the range for any given ability.

    Hey just a note that Curse packager choked on v3.9.3,
    there's nothing in the .zip but the changelog file :)
