Unit frames: falsely showing wrong right size

#1
hey,

i read the sticky in the retail elvui forum section but so far have not been able to fix my issue:

sometimes elvui shows the wrong size of my raid frames. for example, i am in a raid with around 30 but elvui will show the smaller raid unit frames and as a result not all raid members will show up. i think it happens when ppl get moved around in the raid and not every spot is filled.

i tried to play around with the visibility settings but have not been lucky so far.

anybody know a fix?
thanks

i have run into the same issues as OP and have the same suspicion that it happens when ppl get moved.
example:
- elvui->unitframes->raid->groups is set to 5 and ...->raid40->groups is set to 8
- my raid has 30 ppl in it. group 1-5 are filled completely, adding up to 25 ppl. group 6 is empty, group 7 has 5 ppl.
- elvui will show the normal "raid" frames, not the "raid-40" frames, and thus not show group 7

Please test with only ElvUI.

To quickly disable all other addons type in chat in game
/luaerror on

If you still have an issue you will need to upload some screenshots.

1. Type in chat in game
/estatus
And upload a screenshot of your full UI showing the raid frames as well as the status panel. Go to the blizzard raid panel (keybind o or c, by default and raid tab). Include this in the screenshot.

2. Type
/moveui
And upload a screenshot of the movers


3. Upload a screenshot of your raid frame and raid 40 frames settings.
I always recommend backing up your WTF folder - where your profiles/settings for all addons, including ElvUI are stored.

first of all, i just realized that i myself am the OP. LOL
will test soon what you suggested and report back. might take a while cause i dunno when i will find enough ppl to reproduce the problem.

edit: anyways, if idd the raidframes show depending on the number of players in the raid and not which groups are filled, whats the purpose of the visibility settings, which defaults are
for raid40: [@raid26,noexists] hide;show
and raid: [@raid6,noexists][@raid26,exists] hide;show
seems to me what that does is check whether or not the 26th slot is filled and determine which raid frames to show depending on that factor.

edit2: my bad again, so raid26 is not the slot but the 26th player independent of the slot i guess?

You have run into the same issue as the OP? You created the thread, you are the OP.

**Edit - I see you just posted and realised also. :)

sorry again for the confusion. made a couple more edits to my 2nd post.
what i know is that when the problem occurs and i change the raid visibility settings to simply 'hide' and the raid40 visibility to 'show' it will show the 40 man size, which is why i assumed the problem occurs because of @raid26 checking for the 26th slot instead of the 26th player in the raid. anyways, i will test once i get enough ppl.

this is likely related to those errors which i forgot to mention?

Party Frame:

Code: Select all

[@raid6,exists][nogroup] hide;show

Raid Frame:

Code: Select all

[@raid6,noexists][@raid26,exists] hide;show

Raid-40 Frame:

Code: Select all

[@raid26,noexists] hide;show

These are the default settings.

It works to how many are in the group (not which slot they are placed)

Party - hide when there isn’t a group. Show for group 2-5 then at 6 hide.

Raid - hide when under 6
Show when between 6-25 are in a group
Hide if the number of people in the raid gets to 26 and above.

Raid 40.
Hide below 26 in a group
When 26 people are in a raid show.
