tekKompare  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.0.0.9-Release
by: Tekkub [More]
tekKompare is my own personal replacement for EquipCompare and similar addons. It's super-small, designed to do two things:
  • Give you always-on compare tooltips
  • Show tooltips for links in chat when hovering over them
If you want to disable the hovertips, just delete the HoverTips.lua file.

Hmm, its not working today for some reason. Last night was working great but no compare is showing at all. I really liked how it showed compares on mouseover, even in chat. :/

Why? Because the normal game tooltips for items are constantly redrawing. If you have an addon that fixes this longstanding annoyance (StopTheLagginess was it?) then the tooltip is only drawn when first shown, thus you'd only need the key pressed when first drawn.

Not that it matters, patch 2.1 implements an adequate replacement for tK, so I will be discontinuing this mod at that time. Or maybe I'll convert it to remove the keybind requirement on the new design... hrm...

Unhappy Compare tooltip in inventory

This is not related to tekKompare only, since I had the same issue with EQCompare.

I activated the press button feature in the Lua file, so now I have to press Control to compare, and it works like a charm. But why do I have to keep the key pressed when comparing stuff in my inventory while pressing it once is enough everywhere else? Is there any way to change this behaviour so that pressing Control once works just fine in the inventory too?

Ok. Using doggabone's (second) modification the modifier works as I expected for inventory items.

However it works only if you press the key before mousingover on bar items/hoverlinks. And it doesn't work on clicked link (the permament tooltips that appear after you click a chat link).

But it's an unsupported change so w/e :P


P.S. I added a request on the googlecode, but it dissapeared. Guess it got deleted *cry*.

By the way Scae (and any others who've used my tweak), my tweak is obsolete. tekkub has included two lines with the most up-to-date version. One is commented out, the other is not - both refer to "local validator". Uncomment the one you want to use, and comment out the other.

Original (pops up with no key press):
--~ local validator = IsShiftKeyDown
local validator = function() return true end

Alternate:
local validator = IsShiftKeyDown
--~ local validator = function() return true end

IsShiftKeyDown can be replaced with the other modifier functions if you prefer, and you don't need the parentheses for that line. No parentheses!

For what it's worth, I don't remember if my tweak required me to move in and out of the icon but I think that's what happened for me too. But I notice right now, checking the version I just downloaded from WoWInterface, that I can hit the Shift key while moused over a weapon in my inventory - both the default and the Baggins interface - and the tekKompare tooltips appear even if I am and remain moused over the icon. I can't attest for the auction interface or for any other window. I've switched to commenting out the appropriate line in tekkub's code, not just because it works but also because it's easier to keep in sync with stuff I haven't gimmicked up too much.

A modifier on-press could be devised, yes. You know where to put those requests.

tK current ONLY works with the GameTooltip. I don't see much reason why any mod that's showing on-hover tooltips wouldn't use the GameTooltip, but support could be added for them fairly easily I guess. I just need to know what Atlas's tooltip name is.

I posted on the wowace forums regarding the tooltip not showing up in certain situations and you asked for more details.

From my testing it appears to be entirely related to the control key modification posted by doggabone. After adding the change to include a modifier, tooltips will only appear if you hold the ctrl key then mouseover. If your mouse is already hovering over the item then you press the ctrl key no tooltip appears. Naturally this has no effect on clicked 'chat links' as you there's no mouseover occuring, it's just a static tooltip.

Personally, I would prefer tooltips to appear when the modifier key is pressed regardless of when the tooltip was generated. But considered the added modfier key is out of scope of the addon I don't expect any support for it . Consider this post informational only (and to close any potential issues you may have thought your addon may have had).

P.S. Also this mod doesn't work with atlas loot, but I think atlasloot needs to code in support on a per addon basis. So it's up to them to add support.

Type this in your chat frame, hover over the frame that's giving a bad tooltip, and hit enter. Post here what it prints to your chat frame.

CT Mod buffs/debuff... nothing else that would affect how buffs/debuffs act. Since CT Mod is one of the more typical mods to be used, would be interesting to see if this is the problem. I'll have to disable mine to find out if there is indeed a conflict.

Edit: Yep. There's a slight conflict with CT Mod Buffmod. The same issue happens with EquipCompare. Apparently the equipment comparison mods are triggering tooltip, though I'm not sure what fix can be made.
