ManyItemTooltips  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.0.4
by: Freki [More]
What does it do?
Simply put, ManyItemTooltips allows you to open an unlimited number of item tooltips (as well as profession, spell, quest, talent, and achievement tooltips). There is no configuration, just install and you're good to go!

What's new in version 3?
Not much, but it was rewritten for WoTLK. Updates include the following:
  • Support for WoTLK
  • Cleaned up code, improved efficiency where I could
  • Support for LibTipHooker and mods that support MultiTips (limited up to 5 tooltips)
  • Support for achievement, quest, talent, and spell tooltips
  • Updated support for StatStain

Why doesn't X mod work with ManyItemTooltips created tooltips?
Most mods that affect item tooltips were created with the idea that there would only be one item tooltip. Because of this, it's hard to add support for them. Additionally, support has to be added manually, so if ManyItemTooltips isn't working with one of your mods, let me know and I'll check it out. However, I can't guarantee that I will be able to add support.

How can I add support for ManyItemTooltips to my mod?
Thanks for the interest! You can open ManyItemTooltips.lua and information about adding support is at the bottom of the code.
Version 3.0.4
-------------
- Tiny bug fix for addons trying to hook tooltip OnShow

Version 3.0.3
-------------
- Support for WIM (Warcraft Instant Messager); the change to do this may also affect (in a good way) other mods' compatibility.
- Support for Mendeleev added
- Support for CowTip added
- Support for TooltipItemIcon fixed (be sure to have the most up-to-date version of TooltipItemIcon)
- Fixed Ctrl-click bug

Version 3.0.2
-------------
- Updated support for TooltipItemIcon and Valuation

Version 3.0.1
-------------
- Added proper backwards compatibility for hooking
- Increased efficiency on initial load
- [Bugfix] Fixed MultiTips standardization
- [Bugfix] Fixed MIT:GetLinkString error

Version 3.0
-----------
- Support for WoTLK
- Cleaned up code, improved efficiency where I could
- Support for LibTipHooker and mods that support MultiTips (limited up to 5)
- Support for achievement, quest, talent, and spell tooltips
- Updated support for StatStain

Version 2.2.2
-------------
!! No need to update unless you use Auctioneer.
- Fixed a bug with auctioneer that caused the auctioneer tooltips to stay shown even after an item tooltip was closed.

Version 2.2.1
-------------
!! This is purely a compatibility patch. If you use neither StatStain or SpamSentry, there is probably no need to download the update.
- Added compatibility for the StatStain addon.
- Fixed an issue that prevented SpamSentry (and perhaps other mods) from working correctly with ManyItemTooltips.

Version 2.2
-----------
- Profession tooltips are now fully supported.
- This also fixes the bug that caused an error message to occur when you clicked an item link while a profession tooltip was open.

Version 2.1.1
---------------
- Fixed a bug that prevented you from shift-clicking names in chat
- Added compatibility for the Valuation addon

Version 2.1
-------------
Added support to allow other AddOn's to hook onto the additional tooltips created by ManyItemTooltips. See the bottom of ManyItemTooltips.lua if you are interested in seeing how to go about doing this. I've built in support for two great addons, IDCard and TooltipItemIcon, which both do the same thing: adds the item's icon next to the tooltip frame. IDCard is available for download here on WoWInterface.

If there are any other mods that you would like to see compatible with the extra tooltips of ManyItemTooltips (not all are able to), ask the author if he/she would be willing to hook into it or I can see if I can add support for it. (Note: As far as I'm aware, Auctioneer is not an addon that is able to work for the additional tooltips)

Also, a small bug was fixed so you can now shift-click or ctrl-click links without open tooltips being closed first.


Version 2.0
-------------
(This is the first version I've uploaded to WoW Interface, so ignore the whole "new version" mention )

Rewrote the mod from scratch. Not that it necessarily needed it as it worked fine as it was. I guess I was just bored and decided it could use some changes. These are the changes that were made:

- Tooltips are created on the fly instead of having 10 created when the game loads. This means that you can now open an unlimited number of tooltips (not that you should need more than 10 anyways).

- Auctioneer support!... and any other mod that attaches onto item tooltips for that matter. I changed how the mod works so it'll use the game's default tooltip as long as you only have one tooltip open. This means that anything that's attached to the default tooltip should still show up when you use this mod. I haven't tested this, so any feedback would be great. Note that only one tooltip will be able to work like the default UI, the others won't have the attached extra stuff.

- Small fix: items that had the same name but weren't necessarily the same (for example, insignia of the horde), won't close a tooltip that's already open.

I took a look and it seems the author didn't make it very easy for me to add support. Your best option would be to ask the author if he could either explicitly add support for ManyItemTooltips or at least make it easier for me to support it.

Awesome, thank you very much for fixing this problem.

Looks like the author of TooltipItemIcon changed things around with a new version he uploaded. I've fixed it, so hopefully that means there are no more issues!

Here's a test version if you guys want to test to make sure it fixed everything before I upload it here. Otherwise I'll probably upload it in a couple days:

Basically, when someone links an item into chat, I can click it normally, with no issue. Then, if I CTRL+Click the item to view it in the dressing room, it disables the clicking of the item after that. Nothing I do lets me click the item to view it's stats after that.


If you need any additional info, let me know.

I downloaded that version and it seems to open heirloom items fine, no error message or anything.

Is there anything I can help you w/ to bug test the spacing issue? It some how just refuses to draw the extra spacing to the left of the red X button until the links opened twice.

Take a look at these series of screenshots, they're kind of interesting:

www.veevsvault.com/veev/ttspace1.jpg
www.veevsvault.com/veev/ttspace2.jpg
www.veevsvault.com/veev/ttspace3.jpg

Pay attention to the breastplate of agony's w/e tooltip, and how it changes each time. After closing it the first time it somewhat fixes the spacing issue and resets its position (why its not in exact same spot since I had to drag it back), then after closing and opening a 3rd time it doesn't reset positioning but still adds a bit more spacing.
The only change in the version I gave you was to report an error if an invalid link type was opened. In other words, if it works now it should have been always working This CowTip problem is still giving me problems and the only way I can think of solving it would be through guessing and checking. I'm going to see if I can use a friend's account to test it so I don't have to put you through that torture Hopefully it'll all go smoothly.

Hi there. Thanks again for all the bug-hunting you've been doing. I really appreciate it, even if it is difficult for me to try to solve these problems hah. I'm still not sure about the first problem (with the item links not being the right size). For this new heirloom problem, can you try downloading this version of MIT and see if it displays a message in your chat frame when you try clicking on the link? I have an idea as to why it wouldn't show at all, and this would help confirm it.

Does it ever happen on the first tooltip (if you only have one open, that is)? That would mean it's a problem with CowTip.
From what I can tell it never happens on the first one, only on the additionally created ones. As I mentioned before if I close it and re-open it it seems to fix itself. Not a huge issue for me personally and not trying to complain by any means, just wanted to point it out. The plate chest piece in that screenshot is another example, it showed up fine as the first tooltip then it did that, after closing it fixed itself.

Not sure if it's only the first time those tooltips are created or if it's every session. Servers are down at the moment so I can't do much testing.

Okay got the DL working and it seems to be working great, thank you!

Noticed a few small bugs but again I'm not sure if it's more CowTip related or ManyItemTooltips....
