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).

    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 ;)

    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 :)
  • #246
    Thanks, deleted it. Will try again tomorrow :)

    I just got this as my HUD does not have a range display, and it's super useful. I've messed around with it and got it to my liking except for one thing: the green box background behind the range. How do I get rid of it? I really just want the numbers, not even the word "Target." Is that possible?
  • #242
    Sure, just lock the frames (with /rangedisplay locked, clicking the icon, ctrl-clicking the green frame or simply entering combat ;)

  • #243
    Oh wow, that was really easy. Thanks for the help!
  • #236
    things working good. though i noticed if i mouseover,target,focus target a NPC, or say a dead corpse the range display doesnt follow any of my color/range configurations and max range it shows is 28+ no matter how far i am. when i get inside that 28 it then starts changing colors but not to my specifications. thanks for such a great addon btw

    Make sure you configure the section colors for the "mouseover" unit as well (each unit type has a separate configuration, but there's an option to copy one configuration to all other active units).

    Also make sure that you test the mouseover ranges with "proper" targets (critters / mobs / other players outside of sanctuaries). Sanctuaries (shattrath/dalaran) are "no attack" zones and spells are "disabled" there, so I can't use them to check for ranges and fall back to interact-distance based checks (that's when the 0 - 7 - 8 - 28 ranges are shown).

    hope this helps,
