TinyTip  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 30100
by: Thrae [More]
I am not currently working on TinyTip and cannot guarantee it will ever get updated for Cataclysm. I recommend Leatrix Tooltip for low resource usage and TipTac or TipTop for a more featureful option, but with more resource usage. Thank you for your patronage.

- Description Updated -
- Note: I do not maintain TinyTipOptions -

What is TinyTip? Well, it started out as just a simple upgrade over AF_Tooltip_Mini and exploded from there. Now it shares no code with what it used to be, becoming something more, while still staying true to its name. The core of TinyTip is basically just an upgrade over AF_Tooltip_Mini, a small file around 24KB. The more modules you allow to load, the more this value increases. The goal of TinyTip is to allow you to mix and match your modules while keeping the smallest memory footprint possible. All TinyTip addons are optional.

Anyway, as you can guess, TinyTip changes the look of your GameTooltip. Here are the features found in core:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TinyTip
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Required only for interoperability between TinyTip addons.
- Required by TinyTipOptions and nothing else so far.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TinyTipBasic (core formating)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Name, backdrop, and border (optional) colouring by reaction (Hostile, Friendly, etc.)
- Class coloured with raid colours.
- Level coloured by difficulty.
- Creature Type (Imp, Cat) given for Pets.
- UnitClassification (Humanoid, Undead, etc.) given for NPCs.
- Elite Status (Elite, Rare, WorldBoss, Rare Elite) added when applicable.
- (Tapped) for Tapped, (Corpse) for Corpse
- Optional Guild Names displayed. (on by default)
- Optional backdrop coloring for friends and guildies. (on by default)
- Optional Honor Rank Name or Number. (on by default)
- Optional "Hostile", "Friendly", etc. reaction text for the colour-blind. (off by default)
- Optional Compact Tooltip mode.
- English, German, French, and Chinese localization, and partial support for other clients.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TinyTipPositioning
-----------------------------------------------------------------
- Positioning Options (Anchoring, Offsets)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TinyTipTargets
-----------------------------------------------------------------
- Who's targetting your tooltip mob?


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
In LoadOnDemand Addon TinyTipOptions

GUI Options, use /tinytip or /ttip to bring up the menu.
Only loaded if you use that slash command.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Troubleshooting
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: TinyTip is preventing another tooltip addon from working.
A: Go into that other addon's TOC file and add/change this line to include TinyTip.

## OptionalDeps:

Q: Help! I'm getting incredibly long / infinite load times with TinyTipExtras / TinyTipOptions!
A: There is a bug with Ace2 addons (specifically, AceLibrary) which was fixed in the latest revision. If possible, update your addons.

Q: I'm getting an error from TinyTip, or an option isn't working right.
A: 1) Disable all other addons and see if the problem still occurs.
2) Check my WoWI portal to see if it's a known issue, and for updates.
3) Maybe your files are corrupt. Delete TinyTip, TinyTipExtras, and TinyTipOptions, then re-download them and install from stratch.
4) Your Saved Variable database may have gotten corrupt somehow. Try using /tinytip default and then /tinytip confirm to reset it.
5) If resetting your options doesn't work, exit WoW, delete all your Saved Variable files for TinyTip (global and per character), then restart WoW.
6) Leave a bug report on my WoWI portal.

Q: Where's the secret cow option?
A: There is no secret cow option.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
Changelog (Release)
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes in v30100
- Updated TOC as the basic TinyTip modules have been confirmed working.
- Fixed a small bug in guild lines.
- Removed modules from TinyTip (core) as people expressed problems with them. Use the standalone versions.

Changes in v1.4.16
- Thanks to twobits and copystring, we now not only have full 3.x compatibility, but we also have a new TinyTipOptions. It's included in the zip as a separate addon.

Changes in v1.4.12
- Thanks to many people for updating this addon on the Wowace SVN while I was away. Here's the official release. It still has a few bugs in it that I'll sort out in the next few weeks, as I work on an overhaul with new features. I'll try to keep you people up-to-date.
Changes in v1.4.11
- I suggest you delete your folders and do a fresh install of this version, as the locations of some embedded libraries have changed.
- Restructed string concat to use .. instead of string.format, should be a tiny bit faster. Now using AceHook embedded into the core instead of TinyTipExtras, this should hopefully fix stack overflow issues and increase compatibility. Cleaned up a little bit of code.
- "SmoothBorder" added, changes alpha and size of both border and background to Tem's wishes.
- modified zhCN localization for TinyTip. (hk2717)
- Proper German localization for TinyTipOptions and TinyTipExtras
- Proper Chinese localization (zhCN) for TinyTipOptions (hk2717)

Changes in v1.4.10
- Should no longer cause stack overflow errors if TinyTipExtras is disabled or none of its functions are used.
- Added UnitIsCorpse check for dead units, and switched from using AceHook by default to using TinyTip hooks by default.
- Now explicitly calls GameTooltip_ClearMoney() in its hooked OnTooltipCleared script.
- Added MobInfo2 and MonkeyQuest as LoadWith dependants. (You should not need to edit their TOC files anymore).
- Scaling issues upon reload/zoning in should now be fixed.
- TinyTipExtras - Just in case you have a tooltip that doesn't use SetDefaultAnchor and isn't GameTooltip, I've included a way to force anchoring through a static table. You will have to manually edit TinyTipExtras.lua to use this option.
- TinyTipExtras - Raid Target Icon scale now defaults to 0.1.
- TinyTipExtras - Chinese Locals Review (yzerman)

Changes in v1.4.9
- Anchors will now only use the default game offset if you have GAMEDEFAULT set.
- Added tiny hack to fix that one tiny, weeny, 1 pixel offset when mousing over PvP-Enabled characters.
- Tooltip will now properly uncompact after being compacted.
- HideRace will now also hide the Creature Type/Classification. As well, you can now use 1-2 ASCII character keys for elite, rare, and other classifications instead of printing the whole word.
- TinyTip will really not reset your scale anymore. Really.
- TinyTipExtras - Now uses AceHook-2.0, and will override TinyTip's lazy method of hooking (and therefore ALWAYS load TinyTipExtras) unless UseTinyTipHook is set to true.

Changes in v1.4.8
- Scaling for extra features won't reset themselves anymore.

Changes in v1.4.7
- Offsets will now start from the default game offset if you have GAMEDEFAULT set.
- Fixed PvP Rank Icons showing up for NPCs, and fixed problems with adding lines on dead players.
- Added the option to separately position and scale PvP Rank Icon, Raid Target Icon, Buff Icons, and Debuff Icons. Additionally, the Raid Target Icon now defaults to either taking the spot of the PvP Rank Icon, or going beneath the PvP Rank Icon. And fixed another anchoring bug.
- Fixed string.find error with PvP Rank Number.

Changes in v1.4.6
- Raid Target Icon is now 70% smaller.
- Fixed error when setting Extra Tooltip offsets.

Changes in v1.4.5
- Really,really,REALLY fixed Raid Target Icon. Really.

Changes in v1.4.4
- Fixed last of the last of the RTIcon bugs
- HideInFrames will now really, really stop the tooltip from re-appearing when exiting a frame.
- You can now choose to apply TinyTip's custom anchoring to custom tooltips (which use SetDefaultAnchor).

Changes in v1.4.3
- Cleaned up last of the Raid Target Icon bugs. Sorry.

Changes in v1.4.2
- Fixed "attempt to compare string with number" error

Changes in v1.4.1
- Typo in TinyTipExtras

Changes in v1.4
- Total redesign. Fixes galore. Please delete your TinyTip folder before installing!
- MobInfo2, MonkeyQuest, and any other addon that alters the tooltip should now work fine.
- Split off addon into TinyTip, LoadOnDemand TinyTipOptions (GUI), LoadOnDemand TinyTipExtras (more superfluous features). Look at the Changelogs for these mods for more information. Remember, LoadOnDemand means the addon is only loaded if needed.
- Added Compact Mode.
- You can now display Rank # _after_ the name.
- Better FadeOut support.
- SMART anchoring is now STICKY.
- TinyTipTargets and TinyTipIcons are now part of TinyTipExtras.

Changes in v1.3
- SMARTCURSOR should now ignore your offsets.
- SMARTOFFSETCURSOR should now accept your offsets when not over a unit frame.

Changes in v1.29
- Addon renamed from TinyTip to !TinyTip, this will allow it to work with MobInfo2 and MonkeyQuest.
- Fixed Target of Raid members bug I introduced in the last revision.
- Added uColorBorder, which colors the border the same as the backdrop. This is turned on by default.
- Added uDisplayPvPRankIcon, which will display the PvP icon to the top-left of your tooltip. This turned off by default.
- Reworked tooltip_format AGAIN. Now it will erase your current tooltip and remake it. This has increased the initial memory size by 10KB.

Changes in v1.25
- Added [R#] for Rank Number notation. This is now the default. You can use the old
notation with Rank Name by setting uDisplayRank = 1.
- Added new option, uJustifyName, to justify the unit's name.

Changes in v1.24
- Rare Elite coloring fixed.
- Removed redundant call to tooltip_format, making it twice as fast!
- MobInfo2 support added, but not tested.

Changes in v1.23
- Added option to not display "Level" with uDisplayLevelText.
- Added option to skip NPC's information line with uDisplayInfoLine.
- Added option to not display a player's race with uDisplayRace.

Changes in v1.22
- Fixed >9 error. Now the default is also to not use this feature.
- My earlier reaction hack didn't work, changed it back to a slightly less efficient but more correct method.
This will fix coloring problems. However, it makes uAlwaysColorBackdrop unusable, so I removed it in this version.
- Fixed small error that you'll probably never see.

Changes in v1.2
- Basically rewrote tooltip_format to make it safer, tighter, and better. If you were getting any errors before, they should be gone.
- Changed the way hooks to the tooltip were done.
- Added (Tapped) for tapped NPCs.
- Added code from PerfectTooltip into TinyTip, with credit to cladhaire. This code allows a new option to make the tooltip ALWAYS stick to the mouse. This is the default setting.
- Added option to not play with anchoring at all.
- Removed positioning offset options, we really need a GUI settings window for that.
- Even with all that, only increased filesize to 18KB
- Added Todo: TinyTipOptions, a GUI settings window

Changes in v1.102
- Fix for German localization was adverted by typo. Fixed. Dunno about localization, you Deustchlanders keep me in touch!

Changes in v1.1
- New option to show the # of party members targeting the unit rather then each name. Use 2 instead of 1.
- New option to color backdrop for friends and guildies.
- Your guild name will now be a different color (if the above option isn't set).
- UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT likes to be fired more then once. Implemented evil string check even though I know I already put it there. Should fix double guild name problems.
- Tightened code, other bug fixes. Up to 16KB, ack.

I had the same issue after installing SCT 5.01 and it looks like SCT 5.01 had a different versoion of AceHook-2.0 in it. I copied AceHook-2.0.lua from the SCT folder to the respective TinyTip folder (the version in SCT seemed to be newer), and the I don't hit the AceHook error any more on zoning/UI load.

(posted the same solution on ui.worldofwar.net)

I'm getting a problem when I hover over Horde-aligned NPCs (my opposing faction). When I hover over them, they're name shows fine in the tooltip but all the rest of the info gets offset down to the bottom right of the screen (further down than the tooltip) to the point where I can't read it at all.

This only occurs when I hover over an opposing faction (Horde) NPC. Not PCs, only NPCs.

Hi Thrae. Great job on TinyTip. I've recently moved a lot of my mods to their Ace counterparts and have found a huge increase in performance, so TinyTip is one of many.

I'd just like to throw a question / potential bug report your way. I'm not entirely sure if this is a directly problem with TinyTip, or DAB. I'm sure you can answer that for me.

Anyway - here it is.

I've noticed that after the update, if i roll over any of my spells in DAB - i only get a simple tooltip next to the button telling me the name of the spell and its rank, rather than the full tooltip i expect TinyTip to show.

All of the unit tips still work, and from what i can see the spell book tips are fine too. Hence the confusion over if this is a DAB or TT problem.

In any case - i have the latest beta of DAB as of today, along with the latest SVN of TT from today too.

Help!

My bad - it would appear that for some strange reason, i had turned off "Advanced Tooltips" or whatever it's called within Interface options. This then disables all the funky stuff i was missing.

In any case, if someone else encounters this - at least they'll know how to fix it!

1.4.11 breaks the latest FuBar 2.0 as of this post. Though the error message complains about something from FuBar 2.0, so I don't know which mod has the problem. I'll try to post the exact error message when I get a chance.

When i have someone targetted, and I mouse over a unitframe, I still get to see a tooltip, even tho I checked the option to NOT show it. (like in the following screenshot, I was hovering over my target)

http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/1...6143517yn2.jpg

I am using agUF as unitframes.

EDIT: agUF can be found here: http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php/topic,1715.0.html

if you mouseover a civilian, the word civilian is not displayed in the tooltip, but to the left of it.

I've been looking for a replacement for TipBuddy which hasn't been updated in some time. Unfortunately, I've had several significant problems when trying TinyTip:

1) I occasionally get these weird tooltips that are normal height but the entire width of the screen. I can recreate this by mousing over something and opening or closing all bags. It also happens on its own.

I think the weird width part of it has something to do with my particular anchor settings. After doing the reset to default command, opening a bag while showing a unit tooltip no longer made it wide. What it did do, though, is move the tooltip from my mouse to immediately left of the bags. I think the same thing is happening, but the symptoms are different b/c my anchors are different. Here are the settings that make it wide as opposed to just moved:

Code:
{
	["Scale"] = 1,
	["HideLevelText"] = false,
	["LevelGuess"] = true,
	["HideGuild"] = false,
	["AnchorAll"] = true,
	["PvPIcon"] = true,
	["HideInFrames"] = true,
	["ETAnchor"] = "LEFT",
	["PvPRank"] = 2,
	["MAnchor"] = "LEFT",
	["Fade"] = 2,
	["Friends"] = 1,
	["_v"] = 29,
	["ReactionText"] = true,
	["HideRace"] = false,
	["ManaBar"] = true,
	["ToR"] = 1,
	["FAnchor"] = "LEFT",
	["RTIcon"] = true,
	["ToT"] = 1,
}
2) When mousing over ItemRack, the tooltips will now sometimes contain hitpoint data of my current target. I'm assuming this is MobInfo2 data. This is new behavior that has only begun only since I installed TinyTip. By the way, this hp data does not always show up right away. Sometimes, it's not there and shows up after a second or so.

ok im gettin the hang of the anchoring thing (love the offsets, you really can anchor the tooltip to ANY spot on your screen, thats excellent)

i turned the "Extras" off my switching that to "Off" and that does turn off the 2nd tooltip, but that seems to disable mobinfo stuff from showing in the TT. Im also having some trouble with some other mods utilizing the tooltip, namely MobResistances and TheoryCraft (ive tried adding "TinyTip" as an opp dependency but that hasnt seemed to work). MobResistances modifies the mouse-over tooltip to show and calculate mob's magic resists and list it in the TT, where theory craft modifies the mouse over tooltip for your spells, abilities etc to reflect changes in dmg, dps etc from your gear. when i had extras enabled, i was getting some MI2 info in the "extra" 2nd tooltip but nothing for either of those 2 mods.

so far im loving tinytip, its a fantastic mod, its just trying to get these last few things working to make my switch complete hehe.
cheers on a sweet streamlined mod :-D
and thanks for your time and help, greatly appreciated.

edit:
it seems i am getting mobinfo2 info in the main tooltip now (odd) but im still not getting info from those other 2 mods i meantioned. any advice or suggesstions?
thanks much

edit again lol ::
theorycraft seems to be working fine now, no clue how it decided to start working at some point today during various reloadui's apparently (was debugging a mod when i noticed it lol)
MobResistances and the new version of CompareStats however seem to still be mucked up a bit. im getting no MobResistance info at all, and the CompareStats window vanishes in about 1/2 second. not sure if thats due to tinytip or compare stats.
since neither of these mods have ## OptionalDeps: in the .toc, whats an example of a 1 oppdep line?
is
## OptionalDeps: TinyTip
correct?
