LayMacroTooltip
Version: 1.4b
by: Layrajha [More]
This small addon allows the user to customize the tooltips displayed when mouseovering macro icons in an action bar. Without this addon, the base UI would only show the name of the macro.


You can install it by extracting the folder to your addon folder, as any other addon.


Tooltips for character-specific macros and for account macros are now saved separately. The new behavior can be summed up by this example:

- You have 3 characters: Alice, Bob and Charlie,
- You have a shared macro called "Mount" that Alice uses,
- Bob and Charlie both use a custom "Mount" macro, not the shared one.

What happens is that Alice will see the macro tooltip set for the shared version. Bob will see the macro tooltip for his personal Mount macro, and so will Charlie.



Known issues:

- 2 macros with the same name in the same category (character/account) will have the same tooltip

Please post about any bug you encounter and I will try to fix them as soon as I can. I am too lazy to spend hours testing my addons, so there are sometimes minor bugs in odd situations that I do not know about.



Change log:

1.4b:
- bug fix: an already customized tooltip no longer sometimes disappears from the editbox when you click it to start editing it
- another bug fix: renaming a macro no longer generates a lua error

1.4:
- tooltips for character-specific macros are stored per character, independently from account-wide macros
- unused tooltips are now deleted
- changing a macro's name will not make the user lose the tooltip associated to the macro
- corrected a bug in v1.3 where the macro tooltips would not show correctly until the macro window had been opened at least once after each login or /rl

1.3:
- fixed for the 3.2 client of the game
- some of the code is only executed when the macro frame is opened for the first time

1.2:
- included a GUI linked to the build-in macro frame
- removed the "/run" commands
- updated the .toc so that LayMacroTooltip isn't shown as "out of date" anymore
- restructured the whole code

1.1:
- minor change allowing a better display of long texts (automatic text wrap)

1.0:
- initial release

Idea for if you ever update this finally...

Using a LayMacroTooltip, automatically configure macros such as [I]"/Cast Shadow Bolt", "/Cast Heroic Throw", "/Cast Backstab"[/i] or [I]"/Cast Icy Touch"[/I]... to again, Automatically Configure the LayMacroTooltip to show the Mana, Runic Power, Energy, Focus, Rage, Combo Points, Holy Power, etc. it costs to use that Spell/Ability. This, and Not using up the already limited room of 255 letters...

LayMacroTooltip enhances my UI so much, it makes every toon feel different. Cuz i can make a macro that is only

/Cast Bloodthirst
/Script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\\ etc

basically, i can make a Warriors Bloodthirst have the same button as like.... the old DK ability Hysteria. Use AudioX II to have the macro that causes its own SFX to be heard. And LayMacroTooltip can allow me to give my own Macro...

my ability could be renamed, given a custom SFX, custom button icon, custom tooltip... it is really cool and keeps ugly buttons off my action bar... YOU MUST UPDATE FOR 4.2 CATA





...k. still need to update for Cata 4.2. My UI is crap without this addon. There is no addon i know of like it. Update the damn thing! ...please. lol

Addon broken for some reason

I had to downgrade the addon to 1.2 in order to make the addon work. (i dont display lua errors cus i get 42 or so when i log on. but all my addons work fine even besides the errors)

so there is something with 1.4 that doesn't work compared to 1.2

is there a way to colored the added text either by changing the LUA or by adding some command in the text?

I'm sorry I've been so long to reply guys, I've just been very busy lately. I will take some time to fix that and make it work again as soon as I can next week.

Thank you for the detailed bug reports.

Thank you for the bug report. I haven't played much with the per-character saved settings much, I will look into it as soon as possible and try to fix that.
