TipTop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.13.3
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.

Great addon! One thing I have kind of wished it had is the ability to display a target's mana somewhere. I'm not sure how easy this is, or if you would even consider it for a future version?

Thanks for the info. I found out that I could use the same textures from my Kgpanels files onto the tooltip. I'm not sure if it was MyMedia or if the texture was already saved but I got it working atleast.

You can either replace the textures in the TipTop folder manually with your own, or you can look at the "Instructions for MyMedia.txt" file located in the SharedMedia folder.

Disable all of your addons except for TipTop and SellFish. If the problem goes away, then it's another one of your addons conflicting. You'll need to turn them back on a few at a time until you find out which one.

That is what I use actually, as you can see the money display thats stuck to the tooltips isnt the same as the sellfish display style either, its like the default prices you see when you mouse over stuff at a vendor get stuck on the tooltip

Price error on tooltip

Not sure whats causing this, tooltip looks like for a while but after visiting a vendor and selling things the prices get stuck to the tooltip perm. So i have a tooltip covered with overlapping prices constantly until i reload.

Read some stuff about auctioneer causing stuff like that but i dont and never have used it?

Re: Shifting tooltip

I figured this issue out. It's related to Auctioneer and their tooltips. If I open my character screen and then highlight a bunch over my gear and then go back to the action buttons the anchor position will be off. I don't know where the real problem lies, whether one is causing the other or not but thats an easy way to repro it.

TipTop Anchor Problems

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As a result I decided to use TopTip (which I prefer) but this mod is behaving in exactly the same way. I've heard it could be a compatibility issue between it and Auctioneer. Anyone having this problem? Any ideas on what it is for definite and how the issue can be corrected?

My tooltip would be lower right corner normally but after a few minutes drifts upwards by a couple inches and remain there till I log or /reload.

Also, add feature requests to my portal next time.
I had something different in mind, like the text in white and the background changing. I think it's better than changing the text's color. Besides, giving the option to change the background and the text colors would give the players more options to customize.

Is it possible to add a feature to change background's color based on mob's type? Like red for hostile and green for friendly, something like that?

@Mera: I'll look into it. Though I don't know why you would presume that I wouldn't "care" about my users if I didn't add it. I'm also not sure what you mean by "damaging" systems when addons don't use AddonLoader...
