CowTip 3.0  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v1.3.1
by: ckknight [More]

**NOTE: If you are upgrading for the first time since 2.4, CowTip now uses the new LibDogTag-3.0 library. As such, many of your DogTags will need to be rewritten. Please see the in-game DogTag help or the DogTag wiki page for more info.

Tooltip of awesomeness. Moo. It'll graze your pasture.

Hey all, ckknight here, I decided to make a tooltip addon. Therefore I have, and called it CowTip (the name is funny, laugh.)

CowTip is tag-based, specifically based on DogTag-2.0, which is the same tag system that PitBull uses.

One major thing that separates it from some other mods is that it doesn't manipulate data that is already on the tooltip, it adds much more to it, but all in a way that the user can customize to the nth degree.

The goal of CowTip is to be simple, customizeable, and powerful, all at once. (Another bonus to developers is that the code is actually humanly-readable.)

Features:

  • Fully customizable colors, background textures, borders, and fonts
  • Uses the DogTag system so you can create the tooltip of your dreams
  • Displays raid target icons
  • Heath and Power bars with customizable sizes and bar textures
  • Ability to place anywhere on your screen
  • Ability to choose when to hide/show your tooltip

Hello, first of all I would like to start of by saying thanks alot for such a great and easy addon..

But I do have one problem, that is super important (atleast to me)
How can I make the CowTip display Quest Information?
How do i make it work so it lets me know if the mob i got my cursor on is the right mob for the quest...

??


Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I'm running the german client, and I get no Zone-information at all.
It doesn't matter whether the target-unit is next to me, or far away, even if its in another zone - the line is not shown within the tolltip ...
Any idea what I can do to show it?

Have a nice day

Talent Specs

Firstly I'd like to say how much I love this addon. Mostly for its flexability and customisability!

I'd be very interested to see a working distance meter within the tooltip, so I hope that one comes to full fruition very soon!

Another little request is nothng more than a cosmetic touch, but nevertheless I feel it does need mentioning for completeness. I currently have my cowtips showing peoples talent specs. Now this takes a little while to register as it needs to read them from the server when people get close, then after it has aquired them ti fills them in on the tool tip. Now the problem here is that CowTip doesn't re-adjust the size of the tooltip window to accomodate this, and as such the information in there runs out of the window at the bottom and looks a bit messy.

As I say, not a functional problem, but a little cosmetic one that I would be most grateful if you could find the time to re-draw the tooltip window after delayed information is obtained.

Thanks again for a great addon!

LibRangeCheck

The comments on using the [Range] functions says you need LibRangeCheck-1.0, but it's now 2.0. And when I loaded it manually, the ranges started to work, but only ever returned "0 - 5". Is this a support problem from the CowTip side or is this a DogTag issue CowTip inherited?

Question Zone information?

Is there a way to show where a player is when mouse-over the x-perl target, party members or grid blocks please?

I think you're looking for the [Guild] tag.

I have the same problem and, knowing a little Lua, I took a look at the code.

I'm not sure why the problem is occurring — the font size is read using :GetFont() just before setting it — but it's easy enough to get rid of the error. Just replace these lines:

Code:
if v:GetObjectType() == "FontString" then
	local _, size, style = v:GetFont()
	v:SetFont(font, size, style)
end

With these ones:

Code:
if v:GetObjectType() == "FontString" then
	local _, size, style = v:GetFont()
	if size > 0 then
		v:SetFont(font, size, style)
	end
end

Constant error

CowTip works fine with 3.1, except for one thing:

I keep getting the following error while playing. It seems to happen randomly whenever I mouse over an item/player/etc.

I'm currently using CowTip 1.3 and will continue to do so in spite of the error. =] It just gets annoying sometimes.

Code:
Error:  ERROR: <unnamed>:SetFont(): invalid fontHeight: 0, height must be > 0
