    AllPlates - An Enemy Raid Frame

    AllPlates is a new add-on that compiles/groups/sorts all available information about all known enemy units and displays it all in single location allowing the user to see the state of the battle at a glance.

    A more complete description is available on Curse at AllPlates.

    The addon is still quite new so I would appreciate any testing or feedback.

    AllPlates - An Enemy Raid Frame

    Very interesting concept here. With bosses and adds, is it possible to target the add or boss by clicking on the frames? I'd test myself, but I'm currently at work.

    Sadly not, the frames have to be moved, have their visibility changed and the unit address behind each updated during combat and blizzard prevents such frames from doing any targeting. I've played with a few ways to add some limited targeting functionality but futilely so far.

    The display is intended more for information then interaction, allowing you to see the state of units your not targeting.

    Ah. Still looks like a useful addon, though.

    The key concept behind any addon that gathers hostile unit information is that it is functionally limited by the fact that the "frames" created are not "unit frames".

    I've found a method to include some limited targeting capabilities, a version including it is uploaded as an alpha release in CurseForge at AllPlates. If you test this version out please keep in mind it is an alpha version, there are likely bugs I have yet to find.

    Any unit display with a white border can be clicked on to target its unit. When out of combat that includes all ungrouped units for which a unit address exists. When in combat the situation behind the scenes is considerably more complex but the white border will always mean it is clickable.

    There are a couple ways to increase the portion of time in combat where targeting will work (especially for boss fights in raids and dungeons) but they will take a little time to flush out and implement properly.
