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.

Re: usage

Just install it as you would any other mod, you don't have to set anything up. Just click on more than one item link and it'll open more than one tooltip.

Are there any differences between this addon and MultiTips? (Please don't think this question is in any way negative - I'm just curious as to whether there's any features in your addon that are worth checking out!)

cheers,

No offense taken. I think my mod has been in existence longer than his has, not that it matters but it's not like I'm copying him (mine was first released Feb 2006). It does seem to do the same thing, but his appears to only allow 5 tooltips open at once, whereas mine will (now) allow an unlimited number (not that you would really need it ). Also, my code seems to be more efficient than his (no offense to the author, I'm sure mine isn't perfect), not that efficiency matters much for a mod of this purpose and size.

So, yes, they're basically the same thing. If MultiTips is working fine for you, then there's really no need to download this.

Many thanks for your reply. I have actually had a fewer very minor issues with MultiTips so will be trying out MIT anyway, I will let you know if there are any issues.

The attached tooltips like tekKompare and Auctioneer only works for the first tooltip you open, would be nice if they attached themselfs to all open tooltips.

Other than that i really like this, used MultiTips earlier but it bugged sometimes and I couldnt close an open tooltip, really annoying.

@ Avazza:
Unfortunately most of the time there's no way around that. Most mods that attach extra stuff to the item tooltips only have one frame of information to work with because they don't expect users to have more than one item tooltip. There's a few mods that don't work like this, one being TooltipItemIcon over at curse, which create frames as they're needed (meaning they could create a frame for each MIT window open). I'm going to release a new version soon which should allow more compatibility with mods that work like this.

@KayossZero:
Thanks for the compliment

A Bug.

Hello. I have discovered a few bugs in your addon.
  1. If you click on a item link and afterward you click on a profession link such as [Leatherworking: Knothide Armor Kit], the open tooltip is replaced with that one instead of opening a new one.
  2. If you click on a profession link and afterwards click on another profession link, the tooltip is replaced with that one instead of opening a new one.
  3. If you click on a profession link and afterwards click on a item link, the addon invokes a Lua error:
    Code:
    Interface\AddOns\ManyItemTooltips\ManyItemTooltips.lua:123: bad argument #1 to 'find' (string expected, got nil)

Re: A Bug.

@Polarina:
Hi, thanks for the reports. I don't really use the profession tooltips blizzard has put in the game, so I haven't run into these problems until you now mentioned them. I'll look into solving this problem as soon as possible.

first, great addon
second, could it be that the new version hooks frame in a different way?
because, the autcioneer add frame doesnt disappear when i close the item.
maybe its a bug of auctioneer ...

I have the same problem. Auctioneer has had several updates last few days so maybe it has something to do with that indeed

I am getting this error in the 3.0 patch:

http://www.veevsvault.com/veev/manytooltip.jpg

Any ideas? I am using it along with TooltipItemIcon and CowTip, and the TooltipItemIcon is only working for my first tool tip, but I'm not sure if it's due to ManyItemTooltips or not.
