Phanx, with the latest update (1293) I get a few errors with some of the Grid extensions. For now I will revert to a previous release.

1x GridIndicatorSideText-1.0\GridIndicatorSideText.lua:9: attempt to index global 'GridStatus' (a nil value)

1x GridManaBars-1.01\GridStatusMana.lua:5: attempt to index global 'GridStatus' (a nil value)

1x ...\GridIndicatorCornerText\GridIndicatorCornerTex t.lua:8: attempt to index global 'GridStatus' (a nil value):

Yes, those are to be expected with outdated plugins. Grid's changelog clearly indicated that this release (1.30300.1290) required most plugins to be updated. I personally updated all of the plugins hosted with open repositories here on WowAce/CurseForge, and sent PMs to the authors of plugins on WoWI, or with closed repositories. The changes were made to Grid on December 27th, and the release wasn't pushed until April 15th -- plugin authors had over four months to update their plugins.

GridManaBars, according to its changelog, was updated for the changes on December 28th. Make sure you have the latest version.

If no updates are available for those plugins, and those are the only errors you're seeing, you should be able to fix them by adding this to the top of each file indicated:

Code:
local GridStatus = Grid:GetModule("GridStatus")

Well, Phanx, GridManaBars was updated but as it seems only partially, GridStatus was missed ^^

GridSideIndicators also wasn't updated, yet.

Default Re: Grid

I went ahead and committed fixes to GridManaBars, GridSideIndicators, GridDynamicLayout, and GridStatusLifebloom. Not sure how I missed that many when I committed fixes back in December or January.

I can't do anything about GridIndicatorCornerText or GridIndicatorSideText, since they don't have repositories here. Pester their authors.

Can anything be done to Grid_QuickHealth?

With this latest releases keep giving the "attempt to index global 'GridStatus' (a nil value)"

Hmm. I will stay with the version of all these that works then. Is there any reason why we should upgrade to the latest version of Grid? It just removes unnecessary globals, right? Makes sense for most to just stick with the version from a couple days ago that works with the Grid plugins...until they are all updated.

I already fixed that one, back in January. Grab the latest alpha from the project page; its author hasn't pushed a release version since then.

It's marked as Abandoned; I'm not touching it. However, it looks like someone already committed a fix, the day after the changes were made to Grid back in December. Grab the latest alpha from the page you linked.

No. I wouldn't have pushed a release version simply to remove some globals... and I was going to do that, I'd have pushed the release 4 months ago when I removed the globals. The current release contains tons of bugfixes. Rather than sticking your head in the sand and using an outdated and unsupported version, or complaining to me, you should complain to the plugin authors who had over 4 months to make a very minor change to their plugins and didn't bother to do it.

I'm also pretty confused by the fact that I pushed the release version a week ago, but nobody seemed to update until yesterday. Did it really take a week for the release version to sync to Curse.com?

Tried with latest Grid r1293 and the last Grid_QuickHealth r35 and still appears the message

Message: ...terface\AddOns\Grid_QuickHealth\Grid_QuickHealt h.lua line 15:
attempt to index global 'GridStatus' (a nil value)
Debug:
[C]: ?
...terface\AddOns\Grid_QuickHealth\Grid_QuickHealt h.lua:15: in main chunk

being abandoned i guess we have to wait something

Well, I'm still not touching it.

But, the fix I described in my post further up this page should work for you.
