TipTop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.16.1
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)
  • various class icon textures to choose from (thanks, gossipgirlxo and Flat Player Icons!)
  • 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 five 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.

I'm not seeing this behavior at all with my healer. Can you answer these questions?
1. How are you doing your mouseover healing? Macros with keybinds, Clique, a different addon?
2. What unit frame addon are you using?
3. Do you see this behavior with all addons disabled except TipTop (and any addon listed in #1)?
4. Does it occur in combat, out of combat, or both?
1. I was using clique + Dominos, shifted over to using Ion only. Same deal.
2. Stuf. But for group heals I am using Grid with GridIndicatorsDynamic and GridStatushealTrack.
3. Disabled everything except Grid addons/Ion and Stuf. Still occurs
4. In combat only and playing around with it turns out it isn't time based, its occurring every time I slide from one party member to another so that the tooltip does not have time to disappear. If I allow the tooltip to disappear and then re-mouseover the specialisation lines reset to one line.

Hmm... I see that. I don't have world quests unlocked yet, but I had my hubby show me. I'll figure out why the default bg is re-showing itself and the TipTop bg isn't resizing.

Sorry for the delay, I was on vacation. I having trouble understanding your problem. "get fucked up" and "all wrong" are very vague. I haven't seen any issues with the training dummies.

would you be interested in adding an additional dropdown menu item for health text formatting? 1.2k / 1.2k (100%)

Them numbers can get quite large!

Oooh... I had just realized the other day an undocumented change to the API, but didn't even think about how it would affect my mover frames in a few of my addons. I'll put up a fix for that tonight.

*confused*

I wasn't seeing anything other than the default blizz tooltip. After I posted that, I realized that I *had* downloaded and updated it, and was confused, but it was 4am and I went to bed.

Now I'm seeing the healthbar and faction icon and other stuff also.

Sorry to be confusing!
(sorry to be confused...)

It was updated yesterday before your post. That's why you're not getting any errors. What problem, exactly, are you having?

There is an option for scale.


If you want to truncate the text, that would be unwise - then you wouldn't know if it was "...of the Sorcerer" or whatnot. If you want the line to wrap around, I haven't looked into whether this is possible or not. TipTop just follows (skins) the default tooltip.
