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.

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)
  • 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.

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

Try changing line 524 of tiptop.lua from this:
Lua Code:
  1. if event == "UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT" then
to this:
Lua Code:
  1. if event == "UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT" and tt:IsShown() then

The OnEnter handler does nothing. (As a temporary fix, it hides any visible GameTooltip if TipTop is enabled.)

Hello Seerah,

I'm using your addon for years and I'm quite fond of it. However I ran into a little issue recently: in my own unit frame addon, I'm allowing to disable the unit tooltip. This is working as intended with stock tooltips but there is an issue with TipTop: if there already is a visible tooltip, TipTop tries to update it when hovering over the unit, which leads to strange results.

I think the cause is that TipTop listen to "UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT", which is actually triggered when hovering over an unit frame. I'm not sure how to fix this. The evident way would be to hide any existing tooltip in my OnEnter handler if TipTop is enabled. It would be annoying though. I don't know if this could be fixed somehow in TipTop. Any idea ?

Regards,
Elisios.

Can you make it to where the frame scales with the text allowing the health bar to remain underneath all the text?
It didn't used to act that way, and I didn't notice any issues playing myself. Are you using any other addons that add to or alter the information in the tooltips? Do you get the same behavior with all other addons disabled? I'll look at it again, because maybe I just wasn't paying attention, but I'm pretty sure it looked fine when I was questing with hubby the other night...

Odd... That code's only supposed to be called if the tooltip is over a unit...

Even more odd... According to Wowhead, the Farmer's Journal is an NPC... (Ah, I guess it's considered an "innkeeper".)

I'll put in a logic check - thanks for the report!

Hrmm... I couldn't find the cause for this in my code nor in Blizzard's. It behaved the first time, but not afterwards. I put in an extra call to set the border color if item color is disabled but it's the ItemRefTooltip showing.


Neat fact I found out in my digging, though! Blizz added compare tips to these tooltips. You need to hover your mouse over the ItemRefTooltip while it's open and hold a modifier key. These compare tooltips are now skinned. Yay!

Sorry about that, here's the link: http://gyazo.com/59ddf892776eb69f307adad55eee1a28

That's the setup for the borders section of the options, if you need anything else let me know.
