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.


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.



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, great clean mod!

I have 1 feature request (if possible): hiding the tooltips while in combat?

otherwise, thanks for creating a mod ready to roll right "out of the box"

The increase in memory usage seems to be tied to querying the unit's hp, maxhp, calculating the percent, and then setting that text to the status bar in my OnUpdate handler. I have added in a couple of checks so that more work isn't done than has to be. (ie, if hp ~= maxhp then don't bother with percent or setting the text - as a result, full health isn't shown). There is still an increase in CPU usage as you hover over a unit, but it seems to grow slower. Performance doesn't seem to be affected, but if you have issues, though, let me know.

edit: or I could add in an option for health text

Re: anchor point and offsets when set to On Cursor

After looking at StarTip and CowTip, I see that they create an OnUpdate handler which gets the position of your cursor on the screen and then moves the tooltip to be at that position. In WoW's API, there is no way to set offsets when anchored to the cursor, which is why I did not code in support for it originally. What StarTip and CowTip do is a work-around for that, and is overhead which I am likely not to include in TipTop.

Any time .

Nope, nothing else. To be sure of nothing else affecting the results, I tested with only the following mods active:

--TipTop 1.3.2 (on the Live servers)
--Ace3 (standalone from the SVN)
--CallbackHandler-1.0 & LibStub (embedded)
--tekErr
--OptionHouse

I'll look into it. Thanks, Zidomo. Do you have any other mods that touch the tooltip? Just so I know for testing...

Nice work so far. Have been getting tired of being unable to change a majority of TinyTip's options (a lot of its dropdown menus in Blizz's Options panel are inactive). So this looks like a nice alternative.

But one issue that's neither a bug nor a feature request. If you'd like me to post it in one of those two locations, just say the word. Using TipTop 1.3.2, standalone libs, WoW 1.4.3 live, USEng client/server.

"TalentText" & "Target text" options are both disabled. Mousing over friendly or enemy NPCs & monsters, the CPU usage of this spikes from 0 to 0.300 CPU/sec median. As long as a unit is moused over, that CPU time is used. It goes back to 0 when you are not mousing over anything.

That usage is about 3 times higher than what TinyTip & StarTip use when mousing over the same units.

But on the new PTR build (8962), I'm having trouble accessing the addon options.
Yes, this is from the last patch. AceGUI-3.0 (what I use for options menu) was updated today, but it says that it still will not address the bugs in the latest patch. I haven't been able to test yet, as when I tried to log in tonight, beta realms were down again. If you still cannot access options, then you can install Ace3 as a separate addon (from http://files.wowace.com ) and then type /ace3 to bring up a config window.

Can you add this as a feature to show rares in the tooltip?
The default tooltip doesn't show "Rare"? It's been so long since I've seen one, I don't remember. But I added it in to show "(Rare)" after a rare unit's name.

Using v. 1.3.1 I am getting the following errors when mousing over links in chat:
This should now be fixed, as I put in a check for it before it queries the color. This error seemed to happen if the item wasn't in your cache or you moused off to fast... something... Anyway, should be all good now.

Rare text

First off. Great addon. I've officially replaced TinyTip with this. I like the looks a lot better and it doesn't have anything that I don't use.

The one thing that I just noticed that is not there is the Rare text in the tooltip like with elites. Can you add this as a feature to show rares in the tooltip?

I just started using this addon to replace TipTac, and so far I really like it. But on the new PTR build (8962), I'm having trouble accessing the addon options. When I click on TipTop in the addons tab of the interface menu, the tiptop menu doesn't appear and I get an error:

Interface\FrameXML\OptionsFramesTemplates.lua:97: attempt to index local 'panelContainer' (a nil value)

This also happens with most other addons that are configurable in the same way. Is it a bug in the new PTR build?

On live I'm using StarTip, which I think is a stripped-down Ace3 port or clone of CowTip. It can do what I described, so it might be usable as an example.

Sec: ah, I was testing with the FlagRSP2 from here. But I still saw a line it added in my tooltip (over my unit frame). It just would collapse behind the healthbar when I moused off the frame before it faded... But I'm glad that you've found a work around.
When playing on a second character, I have noticed that FlagRSP2 messes up TipTop's health bar. I am not entirely sure why this occurred as I used the same FlagRSP2 settings from testing on the first character. I'll fiddle with this more to see what's up, but as the problems are from FlagRSP2, I'm not sure how likely it'd get fixed.

I have +2 and -2 because there are actually 3 different sizes of fonts in tooltips, sized 10, 12, and 14 by default. I find the tooltips easier to read with this differences in font size. May I ask what you gain by having the text the same size?
I do agree that the way you have coded the font size increase/decrease is the most logical, straight-forward and easy approach. The only reason why I personally keep the font set to 12 no matter what the text it is dealing with is because I am using a pixel font. This font best displays at 12 - any bigger or smaller and the font becomes blurred. The font I am using is the same as what was shown in my initial screenshots. A slider would also give individuals an on-the-fly ability to change their font size. Personally, I have no desire to change the font past 12, unless I change the font face, although I cannot guess the scope of everyone's expectations for customization.

I will think about that... Atm, it's using the same colors as the default tip (or should be... ).
It does use the same colors at the default tip so long as an addon like FlagRSP2 is not allowed to modify the tooltip. I am a bit confused as to why FlagRSP2 alters the tooltip color, the class color as well as removes (player). I am somewhat wondering how MRP, FlagRSP and IRP work with TipTop, but in all honesty, all of those addons give me grief and leave me unsatisfied so I'm just going to stick with the one I can tolerate best.

Hi Seerah!
Thank you for those resent updates you have made to your addon, those have eliminated the problems i had before (with the text collapsing behind the health bar).

And for putting in the talents in the tooltip so i can get rid of 1 that i used to see that.

I have a slight problem tho, when i mouse over my mount the tooltip will stay there and not fade away until i mouse over something else which is strange sine i haven't changed any of those settings and talking about that is it possible to change all tooltips to be instant off instead of fading when you change your target to nothing ?
