TipTop  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.14.1
by: Seerah [More]

In my quest to find the perfect tooltip mod, I decided to create my own and have a learning experience. Thus, TipTop was born. TipTop seeks to modify the default tip instead of replace it.


Known Issue: the disappearing/flickering tooltip issue is on Blizzard's end. People have been reporting the issue with various tooltip addons as well as with only the default UI. There are several posts about it on the Technical Support forums, but no blue response that I know of so far.

Update: the Blizzard bug may have something to do with quickly mousing over minimap tracking icons at the edge of your minimap. Try mousing over another tracking icon to try to bring back the tooltip.




Apparently, my comments are a magnet for bug reports and feature requests, despite the buttons for them to the right to put them on my portal, the FAQ saying to put them on my portal (with links even!), and repeated requests in the comments section to put them at my portal. So I'll put it here in big, colorful, bold letters.

FEATURE REQUESTS AND BUG REPORTS NEED TO BE PUT ON MY PORTAL. IF YOU PUT THEM IN MY COMMENTS, THEY WILL MOST LIKELY BE FORGOTTEN AND/OR IGNORED.
I appreciate the time that you take to report bugs and request things, but please appreciate the time/effort that it takes me to go through them and remember them, and please just put them in the correct location.



Features:
  • optional class-colored border for units (optional support for !ClassColors)
  • optional difficulty-colored border for units
  • option to display class icon before unit's name in tooltip (off by default)
  • option to display guild rank (off by default)
  • added target text line
  • "faded" tip if unit is tapped, dead, or offline
  • custom border, background, and status bar textures
  • custom font selection, plus option of Outline, etc.
  • custom background color/alpha
  • custom health bar color, including class-colored
  • ability to move the tooltip or attach to cursor
  • can show health on statusbar in four different formats
  • health bar may be above or below the tooltip, or be contained inside the tooltip
  • item-quality colored border for items
  • raid icon display
  • added talent text line
  • displays (Rare), (AFK), and (DND) when possible, next to the unit's name
  • option to display elite/rare elite graphic for those units
  • adjust tip background alpha
  • SharedMedia support
  • each character has a choice of using either a global or character specific profile



FAQ:

Where are the options?
The options panel is located on the addons page of the Interface Options panel. Hit escape, go to Interface, click the AddOns tab, and you'll see TipTop listed there. You can also use the slash commands /tiptop or /tip

How do I move the tooltip?
In the TipTop config window, scroll down until you see the anchor settings. You may either anchor the mouse to the cursor, or to a side/corner of the screen. Note that x,y offsets only work when the tip is *not* anchored to the cursor. This is a limitation set by the game's API, and I will not code in the hacks that other tooltip addons use to get around this. I suggest using the alpha setting instead so the tip doesn't block your view so much.

I want the tooltip offset from the cursor - will you add it or is it bugged?
See above.

Where can I find more fonts/borders/bar textures?
For further font choices, I suggest the SharedMedia addon. Have a font you want to use that's not in there? Read the "Instructions for MyMedia.txt" file in the SharedMedia folder.

How can I give feedback?
Feel free to leave your comments/questions here, but all bug reports and feature requests need to go to my portal if you want me to remember to do them.

Can I use your code/textures?
All use of my code and custom textures separate from TipTop must be for your own personal use and they may not be redistributed separate from the addon. You may use snippets of my code in addons you intend to distribute only after receiving permission, and credit must be given.

Can I redistribute this addon?
My addons may only be redistributed in UI compilations, and any mention of the addon must point to its download page or my portal, both on wowinterface.

Do you accept cookies?
I love cookies! Unfortunately, they may turn to crumbs in the mail. Instead, you may donate to my cookie fund via PayPal.

2.11
- updated TOC for MoP
- updated libs
- added Monk class icon
- fixed talents - they now only show Specialization, no talent points
- added option to truncate health text
- cleaned up code a tad
- localized new globals in the upvalues list

- removed "MONOCHROME" font flag because it currently crashes the client

2.9.4
- updated TOC for 4.3

2.9.2
- that was quick! today's mini-patch fixed heirloom item colors (removed override code from TipTop)

2.9.1

I just had the disappearing tooltip happen when I chopped down a Large Timber in Admiral Taylor's Garrison and then went across hills and an area line toward Southport. I kept running and it came back once I left the Southport area heading West along the road. It wasn't gone for very long, but it definitely wasn't working (and did the slight flicker).

I have seen this pretty frequently, both with TipTop (tooltip anchored to cursor) and another addon made purely to attach the tooltip to the mouse cursor - CursorCompanion. It's interesting that both addons are affected...either there's a bug in the way they both attach the tooltip to the cursor, or an outside factor is causing the problem. It's also interesting that people have noted it seems to be related to zoning, because I've had other addon authors need to fix issues due to zoning since 6.0.

Another thing I'd like to note, and take this with a grain of salt, is that a friend of mine who doesn't use any tooltip addons claims this happens to him too, but much more rarely than me. The only addon we have in common is DBM (and I'm guessing the posters here use it as well), so perhaps that's the culprit. I will try to get some testing done with various addon configurations (including all disabled but TipTop) and report back.

I've seen it once or twice, but not so much (or early enough) as to notice why or when it would start happening.
This is happening to me fairly frequently, but I haven't noticed a common denominator yet either. UI tooltips still work, just mousing over mobs/NPCs/players stops working.

This time I had just flown from my garrison to Stormshield and alt-tabbed...ironically they came back right after posting this.

Thanks,
I saw and replied to your reports, Gridspace. I had seen the first but forgot to mention that it was a known issue. I hadn't noticed the second, thank you.
Starting at line 224 relace that if with the following code block and it will fix the elite texture being stuck on non-elites.
Lua Code:
  1. if db.elite and not elitetexture then
  2.     elitetexture = TipTop:CreateTexture(nil, "OVERLAY")
  3.     elitetexture:SetHeight(70)
  4.     elitetexture:SetWidth(70)
  5.     elitetexture:SetPoint("CENTER", TipTop, "TOPLEFT", 8, -18)
  6. end
  7.  
  8. -- make sure to hide the texture for now, the rest of the function will decide if it needs to be shown
  9. elitetexture:Hide()
I assume OnShow isn't fired off if it's already being shown so instead you just get UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT

The only way is to use a border texture with rounded corners.

This happens to me a lot in LFR. /reload generally fixes the problem but not permanently.

It could possibly be an issue with Healbot. I actually seem to remember a similar issue when mousing over that addon a couple of years ago.
