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.

Please post bug reports at my portal. This was reported earlier today and has to do with a bug on Blizzard's end in the latest beta patch. Will be a workaround in the next version.

I've moved the health bar out of the tooltip again. I was having issues resizing it again if something else called GameTooltip:Show() (to redraw the tooltip) - this caused the health bar to overlap the last line of text, as many of you have reported to me. It's not as "cool" looking, but it will behave itself, and there will be less stress for all of us. I did add a background for the health bar, though, and you can customize its texture and color as you wish.

Looking pretty darned good.

The health bar background is pretty sweet.

Offset Positions

Seerah- Terrific addon! Thank you for creating and maintaining it.

I tried it on the PTR today, and I really like what I'm able to do with it. I did have one issue, however:

I was customizing the placement of the tooltip by using the X/Y Offset fields. The first few adjustments were accepted, and when I was happy, I logged out. When I logged back in later, I decided to muck around with the exact placement of the tooltip a little more. I deleted the offset values and hit return for both X and Y. I entered new offset values and hit return for both X and Y but the tooltip did not move from its preset position. I tried reloading the UI and even logging out completely, but the offset values are no longer being accepted - the tooltip cannot be positioned other than in one of the presets defined in the dropdown menu.

Perhaps I am doing something wrong, or need to delete my saved variables for TipTop and just start over.

Thanks again!

Might it be possible to change the <<YOU>> to the character name when the tooltip is displaying the target of the tooltip subject and the target is the player character? I'd rather that this be consistent behavior - display the name of the target - rather than a special designation when that target happens to be the player's own toon.

misalignment due to hp bar

Is there a line I can change to move the hp bar to the top of the tooltip?
As is everything looks a bit crooked either one way or the other since the tooltip's x y coords effect the tooltip not the hp bar. 0,0 coords also puts the tooltip off screen with it anchored to bottom right so the hp bar dissapears

Edit: I guess this could be a feature request, I'll go repost.

Everything should work fine on live, it's just that I've been coding it on and testing it against the beta client.

Any chance of making the name of the target class colored?

I do love the border but I'm so used to having it class colored from other mods that I'm distracted when it's white!
