TipTop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.13.3
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.

I was referring to the Target in the tooltip itself...not the ToT.

So if you were targeted a Rank 1 mage it would be:

Private MageName
Guild Name
Level 70 Gnome Mage


I know you have the border color but some people (ok..me?) instinctively look at the name first to determine class and don't even notice the border.

Oh, you mean the mouseover unit itself, not its target. What you ask requires grabbing that first line, finding the mousover unit's name in there, separating it out from any title(s), coloring by class (would have to be via hexadecimal, can't use Blizzard's RAID_CLASS_COLORS index), and then putting it all back together again, remembering if the title came before or after the name. Doable, but not necessary, as the border is already class-colored and TipTop is meant to be simple. You can either get used to looking at the border and/or reading the class text or stick with a different tooltip addon. Sorry.

Very nice work so far. It's nice, clean, and easy to work with. I'll definitely be staying with TipTop in 3.0.2 and WotLK.

Would it be too much trouble to pause talent queries while an inspect window is open? When checking someone's gear/talents and another player is moused over, all tooltips go blank and the talent sheet is emptied. A little annoying when gear checking.

Also, while on that topic, talent checks aren't working for players from other servers.

Couple quick feature requests:
-Offset and anchor options while unit tooltips are anchored to the mouse. I can only seem to anchor mine to the mouse at bottom-center, with no offsets to work around it. I got way too used to bottomleft.
-Option to hide PvP flags would be nice.

Mouse offsets have been requested before and I have said no. If you are curious why, please read down in the comments.

For the rest, please post bugs and feature requests in the appropriate places (my portal). Thanks

I recently downloaded this mod and have fallen in love with it.

One bug that has poped up very recently is that on Live another mod I have called Pitbull is currently bugging out. Since this was the only new mod I've downloaded in a while I disabled it to see if it was the cause of the issue and sure enough the problem went away. I turned it back on and the problem came back.

I found this weird since they are both very different Mods that do very different things but I just thought to let you know.


Oh and it would probably be good to tell you what the issue was wouldent it lol. The health bar and debuff part of pitbull would flat out not work. I had to use your tooltip to at least see the current percentage of health my taget and I had.

Anchor Offsets

I can't seem to get Anchor Offets to work. I tried to set the offset, but it never moves the toolip. Have it set to Bottom Right with x set to 130.

Trying this one after work, I have been frantically looking for a tooltip mod because TipTac broke and I have to have a tipmod.

Thanks for your work.

Hi Seerah!

So far, I'm loving this, and have used it on both live and on the PTR's.

However, since the patch went live, I'm seeing this error every once in a while. It seems to be pretty random as to when it shows up, or at least I haven't been able to come up with a pattern. Thanks for having a look.

[2008/10/18 17:57:16-164-x4]: TipTop-1.4.1\tiptop.lua:107: Usage: UnitClass("unit")
TipTop-1.4.1\tiptop.lua:107: in function <Interface\AddOns\TipTop\tiptop.lua:105>
TipTop-1.4.1\tiptop.lua:260: in function <Interface\AddOns\TipTop\tiptop.lua:258>
TipTop-1.4.1\tiptop.lua:315: in function <Interface\AddOns\TipTop\tiptop.lua:313>


edit: disregard. I was dumb. somehow I got on an older version.

This appears to be the same error I reported here:

Is there an alternate way to offset the anchor?
I tried in the tiptop's gui but no matter what number i choose and click "okay" next to it, it still is unchanged.

You aren't trying to offset it while it's anchored to the cursor, are you?
