RantTooltip  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.28
by: Stuck [More]
RantTooltip (GUI) Options here.

(NOTE: If you plan on using a layout other than the default layout, you need to delete the RantTooltip_Layout folder first.)

RantTooltip is a tooltip addon that was influenced by oUF to include a layout system for tooltips. You'll find it very similar to oUF. A sample layout is included, based on p3lim's oUF layout. It was designed to match p3lim's layout due to my personal use of it. I take no credit for the design.

The documentation included in the zip file should give you all the information you need on how you create your own tooltip layout.

For everyone who prefers the original RantTooltip look, I've uploaded a layout called RantTooltip Classic.

-[Rum] (Stuck)
0.28 - "<" and ">" will now be colored according to the tag variable the encompass.
- The last player's talent spec will now be cached. This will stop the "Loading" text from flashing in some cases.

0.27 - Colons next to tag variables are no longer colored to be consistent with the adjacent variable. This was conflicting with tag updates.
- Added two more new tags: $curshort and $maxshort. These variables will display health and power values but will reduce their size if necessary.
- For example: 125000 becomes 125k. 1500000 becomes 1.5m.
- Added a $spec tag which will display the player's current spec - their talent tree with the most points in it.
- Do not use $spec and $talents in the same conditional. It will not work. If you want them on the same line, put them in separate conditionals, like this:
Code:
"{Talents: [$spec]}{ ($talents)}",
instead of:
Code:
"{Talents: [$spec] ($talents)}",

0.26 - Added $talents tag which displays the player's talents.
- Fixed a small issue with tag updates.
- Fixed an error concerning layouts without raid icons or combat icons.
- Various small changes.

0.25 - Fixed a few errors involving the DeleteLine function and unit tags.
- Updated the library.
- Other minor changes.

0.24 - Fixed a tag update issues that concerned "$target".
- Added PreOnSizeChanged and PostOnSizeChanged functions for every tooltip.
- Fixed an issue concerning GameTooltip.FindLine in the library.

0.23 - Updated a few things.
- Colons are now colored according to the tag variable to the left of them.
- Fixed and changed the library.
- Cleaned up code.
- Other miscellaneous changes.

0.22 - Fixed a conflict with GearScore. GearScore tooltip text now displays properly.
-Add override functions (i.e.):
GameTooltip.OverrideSetDefaultAnchor(self, parent)
GameTooltip:PreSetUnit(unit)
GameTooltip:PostSetUnit(unit)
GameTooltip:PreOnShow()
GameTooltip:PostOnShow()
GameTooltip:PreOnHide()
GameTooltip:PostOnHide()
GameTooltip:OverrideUpdateHealthBar(bar, cur, max)
GameTooltip:PreUpdateHealthBar(bar, cur, max)
GameTooltip:PostUpdateHealthBar(bar, cur, max)
GameTooltip:OverrideUpdatePowerBar(bar, cur, max)
GameTooltip:PreUpdatePowerBar(bar, cur, max)
GameTooltip:PostUpdatePowerBar(bar, cur, max)

0.21 - Fixed health bar text, fixed text color, and a few other things changed.

0.2 - Updated to fix memory problem.

Any chance of LibSharedMedia support for picking textures and fonts? Manually entering texture paths is kind of clunky

I really like this addon.
It behaves like I always wanted a creature tooltip to behave.
But please remove the font configuration option.
All it does is interfering with addons that specialize in font config
like clearfont.
And I really hate the default font.

I seem to be unable to access the GUI Options without it.

Fixed. ;p

ok found out the reason it was not showing talents on people. It was the examiner/talented fix it seems might be talented itself, as I can not use it correctly without patch. not sure why the addon would conflict with it. but that is the culprit. going to see if i can find out more.

Are you sure you have "Show Talents" enabled? If you have "Show Trees" or "Show Tree Name" enabled, you need to have "Show Talents" enabled for it to work.

You're right about the "Show Guild" option. I'll upload a fix real quick. =)

Good ideas. Those have been added.

I am also writing a RantTooltip Lite. Over time, with all of the features I had added from suggestions people make, RantTooltip has strayed away from what I really wanted it to be. I know if I went and removed current options to make it really lightweight, it would just cause people to ask for them all over again. So I'm making it a completely separate version.

The new versions are pretty much done, but I am awaiting a response from a WOWI moderator, in hopes that he will help protect my work from further plagiarism.

Awesome man! I did find an issue with RantTooltip and a mod I have been updating that uses QToolTip to display all of its tooltips.

The jist of the problem is, start up WoW. Once everything is loaded move the mouse somewhere that it will not highlight over anything at all, this way the real gametooltip won't be initialized at all. Then reload the UI (/reloadui). Now highlight a tooltip based on the QToolTip library and the background will come out as white/grey instead of the default black etc.

Now I of course assumed this was an issue with the library I was using but after testing all other tooltip mods I couldn't get this to happen with any of them and of course it didn't happen with the default tooltips.

So I would love to do some testing on your new version. I would much rather use Rant, I miss all the info it displays haha.

I tried to search the comment for this, but it was hard, so I apologize if this has been answered somewhere. It seems like doodads (Dal portals, fires, etc) aren't working for me with Rant. Is there an option or something?

updating in real time

For me the addon doesn't update the enemies health in real time. Not sure if thats just how the addon is or if i'm doing something wrong. If i use the default blizzard tooltip and leave the tooltip on a monster i'm hitting I can see the health bar/value decrease with each hit, but with this addon nothing changes unless i refresh it manually by moving the mouse off the monster and back on. If I do that it gives me the updated health values. thanks!

it seems like RantTooltip collides with ShieldMonitor, causing the latter to throw some errors (like the tooltip was cleared before SM accessed a variable or sth)
