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.

2.9.4
- 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

I like this so far, just add a Option to remove the Title infront of Playernames. (Like Gladiator Duelist etc. pp.)

And the Targeting seems to not update on the fly if you mouseover someone, you have to "re"museover to see which Target your Target.

And yes, Talents would be nice.



Edit:

Raid Icons do not update correctly, after targeting a NPC with Icon and then a Party Member, the same Icon shows up all the time.

A Background for the Healthbar would be good, hard to see sometimes

ANd maybe instead of showing my own name if im targeted, showing "YOU" would be nice.

Thanks for the comments, all. I will think about Talents and Titles. Titles would require me parsing the tooltip and replacing stuff, of which I'm not doing any of that now.

I could add in a background for the status bar - would make reading the text easier when health is low.

I'll look into updating targets differently, and "YOU" is doable.

Hrmm.... I had Raid Icons working perfectly at one point, though I may have changed something when cleaning up/rearranging the code. Will look at it again, thanks. Oh, I know what it is - I'm dumb. Will be fixed in next version.

Yeah, we removed ratings from the site yesterday as we and other authors are tired of griefers giving addons a low rating cause they think it's fun. We may replace it with something else in the future.

But thanks for the thought! If you like it, you can add it to your favorites instead.

Still debating talents. Removing titles, I don't think I'm going to implement.

Does not work at all for me, the latest Version.

Code:
Interface\AddOns\TipTop\tiptop.lua:88: attempt to index global 'ShoppingTooltip3TextLeft1' (a nil value)
Count: 1

Call Stack:
[C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\TipTop\tiptop.lua:88: in main chunk

This error will occur on live servers, as there is no ShoppingTooltip3 frame.

A potential (i.e. untested) fix is to replace the wall of text on line 78 with this:
Code:
--fonts--
GameTooltipHeaderText:SetFont(font, fontSize + 2)
GameTooltipText:SetFont(font, fontSize)
GameTooltipTextSmall:SetFont(font, fontSize - 2)
ShoppingTooltip1TextLeft1:SetFont(font, fontSize-2)
ShoppingTooltip1TextLeft2:SetFont(font, fontSize)
ShoppingTooltip1TextLeft3:SetFont(font, fontSize-2)
ShoppingTooltip2TextLeft1:SetFont(font, fontSize-2)
ShoppingTooltip2TextLeft2:SetFont(font, fontSize)
ShoppingTooltip2TextLeft3:SetFont(font, fontSize-2)

if select(4,GetBuildInfo()) >= 30000 then
	ShoppingTooltip3TextLeft1:SetFont(font, fontSize-2)
	ShoppingTooltip3TextLeft2:SetFont(font, fontSize)
	ShoppingTooltip3TextLeft3:SetFont(font, fontSize-2)
end
That way it should work on live aswell as beta

Oops - I said it wasn't tested on live.

That error should be fixed now.

Could you give us a way to shrink the size of the tooltip box? You can shrink the font size, but that just means a lot of empty space inside the tooltip.

Did you try the scale option? It's the first one at the top of the lua file.

Possibly add color to the guild tag based on if you're in the same guild as your target?

I never quite got the reasoning behind that feature in some mods... If it was the same guild as yours, wouldn't you recognize the player's name (even the guild name) at a glance without need for some special color code? So, no, I don't think I'll be adding that one in. Since this is the default tooltip, however, and not a custom one, you are free to create your own addon to do this, and they should play nicely together.
