lolTip  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2
by: Lolzen [More]

Explanation
Once i experienced Lua for the first time, i've ever since dreamed about making my very own tooltip.
Someday i really did it, and i've learned much trough this addon. It has grown very much since the release back then.

What can lolTip do?
lolTip features following Stuff:

  • Unitnames colors in class/reactioncolor
  • Level displayed in difficultycolor
  • Own Guild Coloring
  • Show GuildRank, GuildRankName next to the Guild
  • Target on the topright if exists
  • RaidIcon
  • Anchor changeable to follow the mouse
  • Hides Playertitles in Tooltip
  • Nicer Style if PvP is activated on mouseoverunit
  • ItemQualitycolored tooltipborders
  • Healthbar inside the Tooltip
  • Modifiable HealthBar-values in different Styles
    -percentage (37%)
    -numeral (3489/5000)
    -shortened (42.3k)
    -diff (-29399)
    -They also can be mixed up like diff and shortened (-37.4k)
  • de/activateable modules
    -Talents
    -disable fading, and hide tooltip instant instead
    -Dont popup Actionbartooltips inFight
    -Buffdisplay under the Tooltip
  • Easy changeable colors
  • Support for ManyItemTooltips (Skinning)
  • Support for Class Colors (Custom Class Colors)

Modules Q&A
Q:So what are this modules, and why are they there anyway?
A:The modules are tiny additions to the Tooltip not everyone might wants to have activated. So they are deactivatable.
Q:I want module xy.
A:You can a) Request it, or b) make it you own and send it to me per PM, and i'll add it in the next Release. Personally i prefer b, because i want to focus on the main Addon, not the modules, but also want to give the users the chance to habe a customable, yet not bloated Addon.

Other
To modify the border and StatusBartexture, you'll have to replace the blp's. (Also tga's possible)

Configuration
The configuration will be done through lua only.
You may open tip.lua and at the very top you'll find the configuration
Also there is a little config in lolTip\modules\buffs.lua
There you can modify the maxumum auras displayed, the size of them, the x & y offsets and add filters (no worry, a small text from WoWWiki should describe it fairly easy)

Thanks to
Aezay, Cargor & Seerah
You! for Reporting bugs, and suggestions

Hope you enjoy lolTip as much as i do,
Lolzen

How can I make it anchor to the tooltip, and is there any way to add mana statusbar on it? Thank you!

I found out that when you go from Full Screen to Windowed Mode, the tooltip border goes all haywire, going from a width of what is usual to 300% or so of that.
Looks like this is an problem of some .blp-replacements. The Buttons for the esc-menu were also messy.

Also, I am able to move the anchor when I change the horizontal parameter (the -15) but, for a reason I can't find, not the vertical parameter (the -200).
Thats odd, tested it right away :S
But if you want it to Original Position, you could alternately comment all out.

This code fix the issue (credits to Snago@wowace)
Wow! Thank you both =) Sry for my noobness, i should train my skills on lua *_*

Code:
	-- Targetline
local playerName = UnitName("player")
local function targetinfo(unit)
	if UnitExists(unit) then 
		local who = UnitName(unit)
		if who == playerName then 
			return "|cffffffffYou|r" 
		end
		return who
	else
		return "(none)"
	end
end
if unit then
	local unittarget = unit.."target"
	local info = targetinfo(unittarget)
	if info ~= "(none)" then 
		local _, class = UnitClass(unittarget)
		self:AddLine("Target: "..ClassColors[class]..info)
	end
end

Hello,

I found out that when you go from Full Screen to Windowed Mode, the tooltip border goes all haywire, going from a width of what is usual to 300% or so of that.

When you do a /reloadui everything corrects itself however. I just wanted to bring out that problem to your attention.

Also, I am able to move the anchor when I change the horizontal parameter (the -15) but, for a reason I can't find, not the vertical parameter (the -200).

Otherwise, Tiptac's been permanently replaced by a beautifully small and well written addon. Keep it up, I'll be keeping an eye on you from now on!

Might be an other addon, test if you have the issue after you disabled all other addons.

It's weird, it doesn't even prevent the addon from working, it just pops, all the time.

Okay, first report, this happened randomly "i think" in EotS

Code:
[2008/06/01 03:42:44-9407-x1]: lolTip-1.0\core.lua:135: attempt to concatenate upvalue 'unit' (a nil value)
<in C code>: ?

  ---
Edit: confirmed, happens everywhere, can't get rid of it.

Edit: Oh, and i think it will work Standalone too, so no fiddling if you don't want n_n

and maybe not count blizazrd addons in the total mb
Heh, just take the Tooltip out of the original LynStats, it shows both - Addons with and without Blizz.
