TipTop  Updated Today!  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.

Quite simply: thank you.




Fine as it is though certainly wouldn't complain if an in-game modifier were made available that remembers the setting between versions

Hi!

Thanks for a great addon Seerah.

I have a question, I use TipTac Talents http://www.wowinterface.com/download...acTalents.html to show talents in your tooltip and that is working great but im not sure if this is a problem for the live realms and working great on the beta but most of the time the health bar is over the last line in the tooltip on my comp, the only things i've changed is the texture for the bar and the fonts that is used and the size of the font.

Do you think that you can have a look at this please ?

Sure, I'll look into it.

Strongbow: I decided to add the ability to show talents directly to TipTop. This will ensure that the tip gets resized properly.

If anyone prefers not to view talents in the tooltip, then change showTalentText to false in the options section at the top of the lua file.


Also, please let me know if anyone else finds incompatibilities with other addons adding things to the tooltip.


I've also decided on eventually adding in a config panel, though I'm not quite sure when I will get around to it.

Seerah could you please hook GameTooltip's "OnShow" script instead of just overwriting it as it may cause incompatibilities between TipTop and a future version of QueTip.

Goodness, thank you for this addon Seerah! This is the first and only addon I have found that plays nice with FlagRSP2. Straight after a fresh install, and TipTop picks up and displays FlagRSP2 information!



I have noticed a few oddities though, albeit relatively minor ones. These could be due to my formatting, but I've mainly stuck to modifying what you've commented at the top of the .lua file. The only other change has been to remove the +2 or -2 to font size.


Above, we see that the second weapon tooltip (Elekk Handler's Blade) does not have all text displayed in the same font.


Here, Maxumus' target is covered by the health bar. I am wondering if this is caused by setting talent display to false.


This is my character's tooltip, when hovering over my unitframe. The healthbar does position correctly if I target something, though.

@Slakah: Sure - I don't know why I wasn't hooking it before. Was probably just lazy.

@Sec: I will look into all of those (maybe it will be fixed by properly hooking the tooltip). The font is an error on my part - I forgot about those right text lines for weapons.

Hi Seerah

1. The talent line is reversered, showing eg. a destruction lock as (40/21/0) when it should be the other way around (0/21/40).

2. If a player has no target and I don't have any talent info, the health bar is too far up on the tooltip.

Keep up the good work

v.1.3
- fixed talent line display
- hooked the tooltip's OnShow() instead of replacing it
- fixed font applying to the right-side of compare tips
- added an in-game config panel


Sorry Hjalte and Sec, I could not reproduce your health bar issues. Please let me know if they continue after this version.

Same here, with no Target and you hover over a PvP Target where Talents are not showing up, the Healtbar is not in place, it overlaps with the above stuff.

Do you guys get the same behavior with TipTop being the only addon enabled? Also, what addons are you using that touch the tooltip?

I just noticed, actually, that Sec appears to have another tooltip addon enabled at the same time. It doesn't say (Player) after the level/class/race line and class is class colored.

I got some other Addons yes, but none touches the Tooltip in any way (afaik)

I use addons like oUF + layout and all the plugins like combatfeedback etc.
Dominos Afflicted2 simplebuffbars and so on. Ah and i used TipTac befor, and was always testing TipTop until the latest Version, which is kinda the Version i would use instead of TipTac i guess savedvariables of TipTac wont touch TipTop, right?

I will try to run TipTop without any Addon tomorrow and will give feedback here.

Seerah, I upgraded to 1.3 and refrained from configuring TipTop so that the information I provide hopefully will be accurate. I also deleted the saved variables files.

I believe I have disabled all tooltip-modifying addons aside from TipTop. Firstly, I believe that FlagRSP2 is the addon that colors the class and removes the "(Player)". Having FlagRSP2 disabled corrects the issue. FlagRSP2 does not seem to have any other affect on the tooltip/TipTop, aside from the additional name and title fields. I actually like that the class is colored; I'd love for there not to be a class field, but I'm not sure how to remove it through the .lua file. The same goes for (Player); it is a field I would remove had I the knowledge or option to do so.

When running only TipTop, if I hover over the pet (warlock) or my own unitframe, the health bar still is too high. If I quickly hover from my unitframe to the pet's, the healthbar does not seem to have enough time to update its width to match that of the actual tooltip.

The health bar texture is also a bit off, no matter who's unitframe or character I am looking at. It looks like there is a second line of texture that starts on the left and ends roughly 3/4 along the actual health bar. It is slightly noticeable because the second line appears only 1 or 2 pixels wide.

This is all I have noticed while running an unmodified TipTop, without enabling any other addons that modify the tooltip's appearance or functionality. I am going to modify my ToolTip, turn on my addons and see how it does. I will be using FlagRSP2 still, mainly because there is no good replacement and I enjoy the concept it provides.

Other tooltip-related addons I use: SpellTips, TekKompare, ManyItemTooltips and Enchant Woot-O-Matic.

I might have some requests/suggestions after I get my setup reconfigured however I fully understand that this was developed to fit your needs, Seerah, so I may just end up asking how I'd go about tweaking things myself. ^^"

I'm assuming that this is on Live, not beta? I will do some more digging.

edit: Sec, are you using FlagRSP2 or the more recent version of FlagRSP BC (continued)?
