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.

- added option to truncate health text
- cleaned up code a tad
- localized new globals in the upvalues list

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

cursor anchor

Sorry if this already has been asked, but

Is it possible to add an option for the anchor of the tooltip anchored to the cursor? (when the "On Cursor" is checked, obviously)

because atm its the BOTTOM anchor used, and when I mouse-over a pack of mob to cast my Blizzard, the tooltip is convering the mobs and its hard to see how many remains.

Crisis averted! I can still make the backdrop to the tooltip invisible, showing the custom background frame, and allow addons that create custom tooltips/frames that act like tooltips query the client to see what the tooltip should look like.

Let me know if something still doesn't work right.

For now, change line 58 of tiptop.lua from
Code:
tt:SetBackdrop(nil)
to
Code:
tt:SetBackdrop({})
(ie, take out the nil and add an empty table) to see if that bandaids it.


I'll play with it more tomorrow (past my bedtime atm). We may end up ditching inside health bars again (at least ones up top).

Whilst I am unable to give the exact error text (Swatter doesn't catch them but the default error handler does), I am able to produce it by running (amongst others):

Titan Panel
Broker Factions
Spam Sentry

Tooltips for these latter two items (Broker related I think) do not appear and cause the errors. LibQTip is also mentioned with regard to Ackis Recipe List.

I will see what I can do to report the exact error text...ta-da! Yay! I did it!

Code:
Message: ...Ons\AckisRecipeList\libs\LibQTip-1.0\LibQTip-1.0.lua:374: Usage: <unnamed>:SetBackdrop(nil or {bgFile = "bgFile", edgeFile = "edgeFile", tile = false, tileSize = 0, edgeSize = 32, insets = { left = 0, right = 0, top = 0, bottom = 0 }})

knowing the actual errors would be helpful... Open a bug report at my portal, if you will.

I'm using a (rather small) pixel font and I had to modify the tiptop.lua a lil bit so all of the text uses the same font-size now but I wish I would understand more of the code =)
What addon/s do you use to set all the fonts ? I'm trying to get all the places where I want "my" small pixelfont to be used to have a certain size but not every addon (or WoW itself) makes it easy for me.

I hadn't thought of that... hehe I was using the X-Perl Thin border, from X-Perl (obviously). Let me try one of the default Blizzard borders and see if that fixes the problem.
...
Switched the borders to the Blizzard Tooltip style and it stayed consistent. That style is very similar to the X-Perl Thin border I was using; very clean and easy to see the class colors.

All fixed! Thank you!!

Oh, it doesn't? I admit, I use a manual font replacement trick that does all fonts in the game. I'll try to remember to look into it - can you post this in the bug reports section of my portal? It's linked on the description page both in the FAQ and under the downloads button.

I just started using TipTop and it would be nice if the Vendor Price (as recently added by Blizzard) could get the same font as the rest of the tooltip.
TIA!

TipTop never had an instant fade feature. It fades just like the default tooltip (since it *is* the default tooltip).

Love the mod, been using using it for my tooltips since forever ago.

With the latest update, it seems like instant fade was removed.

Was it intentionally removed and is there a quick fix? =)

Thanks!

@Purity:

You'd have to find the line in the tooltip (generally line 2), check to see if it is the player's guild name (it won't be if they're not in a guild), and replace it with your own version of line 2 that is colored how you want it. iirc


@Braysen:

I am not having an issue with the border across characters (I'm not using default settings atm)...

Love it!!! Just one question...

I love this add-on!! This just replaced TWO add-ons, saving me time and system resources. TY!!

I do have one small issue... The border changes every time I log into a different character. I have it set for one profile for all characters, and it ports all the other settings except the border style. Not a big deal to change... only takes about 10 seconds to change it back... but it's a bit of a hassle.

Great work! Please, please keep this add-on updated for many patches to come!
