TipTop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.14
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.



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.

- 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
- updated libs

2.9.3
- fixed a bug with the short talents option when mousing over someone with no talent spec

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

2.9.1
- attempt to fix Blizz bug where Heirloom items are colored white (this only fixes the tooltip borders, I filed a bug report to fix on the servers)

2.9
- added option to only show main spec name (hiding the talent points)

- changed hp display for units with no maxhp (ex. walls in WG) so that maxhp is 1 - this displays their current health, at least, instead of forcing the text to be blank
- fix for random/rare error with talents

I know you have a bug report for this - http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.p...bug&bugid=5131 - but it's a bit older and I just wanted to chime in here too and say I am having the same problem that Vellesta and bubblebop reported between Grid and TipTop. I love them both too much to get rid of either one, and I don't really know which one is at fault (I suspect Grid, because it even happens when Grid tooltips in combat are turned OFF), so I am living with it, but if it can be fixed on your end (since you're much more active than the Grid people) I'd be thrilled!

It doesn't get said enough so thank you so much for your simple, pretty mods.

This has already been reported in the Bug Reports section of my Portal. I am working on getting a fix out soon.

I am also having the exact same issue as bubblebop. It may be worth noting, I've only noticed this when hovering over a frame in Grid while in combat.

First, I absolutely love this addon and have been using it for a long time -- thanks so much for providing it, updating it, and helping users with their issues so frequently.

I've scanned over these comments and have not seen anyone post with the same issue I'm having, as I believe it started with 2.0 (though possibly with 2.0.1).

To describe the issue -- when I simply mouse over raid or party unit frames and go back and forth between two or more player units which are in combat (doesn't happen when they are out of combat), the TipTop tooltip begins growing/duplicating the players' talent builds until, in some cases, the tooltip becomes giant! If I move my cursor off the player unit frames however, it "resets" the tooltip, and it goes back to normal, i.e. it only displays their talent build once. Again, I've only found this occurs when the raid or party members I am targetting are in combat.

And by the way, I am not receiving any error from this issue, either from TipTop or another addon. I haven't been receiving any errors from TipTop at all, actually.

*Edit* I didn't originally notice, but if you look at the screenshot, it shows I'm targetting a "Level 80 Blood Elf Mage", however the tooltip border is orange instead of light blue, and it's displaying "Talent: Feral Combat (0/58/15)" somehow.

It's sort of hard to explain, so I've provided a screenshot:

As of last night using the new build, it appears the error has been killed.

Thank you for the quick response!

I'm sorry about not posting in/on your portal. I was making a quick post while waiting for a rez (being dead at the time). Looks like I may need to save a link directly to your portal for next time if needed.

An editor with line numbers is no trouble. I have Notepad++. The error was caught (again) by the default LUA error handler and not Swatter. I'm not sure if disabling "show LUA errors" will allow Swatter to take over or not.

I never saved any info from an error I received about not being able to show a border since I'm uncertain what add-on I was using at the time it popped up. It may have been Altoholic. It didn't repeat so I didn't worry too much. I tend to torture my add-ons with other add-ons.

Well, I'll put an "if index then" check in there. That should at least quiet it.

Well, that's the problem...it was a completely random thing. I'd just logged in and I saw the error pop up.

Guys, how many times do I have to ask you to put bug reports in my portal? I'm gonna stop replying to them here and/or just deleting them from the comments after tonight.

@ Gruffness: try changing line 271 from
Code:
if target and target ~= UNKNOWN then
to
Code:
if target and target ~= UNKNOWN and tclass then
If you don't have an editor with line numbers, then just search for that code and you'll find it. Let me know if it seems to fix it. Seems like it should, but I haven't raided in ages.

@ Tinuviel: When did you get this error? What were you doing/what item/etc? Bug reports are great, but 99.9% of the time it's best to give as much info as possible when reporting something. Thanks.

QTip errors are gone now thanks, but there's another unrelated long-standing issue that I just figured out - I'll make a bug report ticket for that one.

I already know how to do it, but I've stated numerous times that it seems "hackish" and I don't intend on adding it at all.
