gTip

Version: 1.271
by: Goldpaw [More]

What is this?

  • Yet another tooltip addon. It is dependent on gMedia which must be downloaded separately!


What does it do?
  • Reskin the game tooltips
  • Moves the tooltip healthbars inside the frame
  • Colors character names by class
  • Colors unit names by faction standing
  • Colors pet names by happiness
  • Colors unit level by quest difficulty (makes stuff 10 levels above you red, etc etc)
  • Allows you to choose between anchoring all tooltips to the curser, only unit tooltips, or none at all
  • Can hide the tooltips when engaged in combat


How can I configure it?
  • /gtip


It's not working!

What is the name of the UI and Addons in your screenshots?
  • gUI

1.271

- Now also skins dropdown lists, dropdown menus, chat menus and the title picker frame
- Now uses gMedia2 and gLib2
- Now embeds gLib2
- Now uses gLibs localization handler

1.1
- gTip now has an Interface Options menu
- The option to re-anchor the tooltip to the default position has been added. Will be above the Loot-frame if gUI is loaded.

Directly inspired by the layouts of TukUI, yes. (And Dysphoria. A hunter famous for soloing stuff.) Many of the styles and mini-addons are redone from scratch, though. I was using TukUI for a very long period myself, but finally I started making my own, instead of just doing endless tweaks to Tukz' code.

The unitframes are based on the oUF framework, and the style is custom made for gUI.

I'll upload my oUF unitframe styles at some point, but there is no simple guide on how to achieve those frames yourself. In oUF, all is done in .lua, no options menus. Pitbull Unitframes can be configured to look the same, though. For people not familiar with the LUA scripting language, that wish to make their own unitframe styles, Pitbull is just awesome!

Any chance of adding an option to disable the cursor tooltips when your hovering over ui elements?.. as in allow the tooltip to hover in the corner instead of your mouse

You mean to have an extra option to dock tooltips from UI elements, not players, even when the tooltip is set to anchor to the mouse? That can be done. I'm adding it to the ToDo-list.

Dead annoying having the tooltip cover the actionbars, isn't it?

haha yea extremely annoying.. i love your addons so i wanted to drop tinytip for it its just little things like that.. that bug me heh


Also i customized my tinytip back in the day that might be nice to add into your addon.. i have it setup so whenever someone has a target it shows you in the tooltip.. also another thing that comes in handy when you quickly glance at them is colour coding based on class and whatnot. here's a ss of how i have it setup when targeting players

Yeah, I've been thinking about it. It requires a rewrite, though. Currently I don't edit the contents of the tooltips at all. All I do is to skin them.

My knowledge of lua scripting is very limited. Can you explain to me how to define the font that gTip uses? Even one of the fonts included with gMedia would be fine.

I don't change the font. It simply uses whatever WoW tells it. gTip is (currently) just the default WoW tooltips with the healthbars inside the frame and a different background and border.

I don't think I've changed anything regarding whether or not player titles are shown...? Hm. Or maybe I have. When I added class coloring I *might* have forgotten to show the titles along with it.

*blushes and hides in a corner*

- Added to the ToDo list for next update. Which will be soon.

Thanks for that. It's definitely not intended. I'll add a fix for that too.
