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

Not working with Dockingstation for me when mouseoveranchor is set to true but works if set to false. The last version worked fine with it, going back to that.

Something else i've noticed, setting the backdrop_color in the options won't work well, no big deal but i had to manually set the GameTooltip:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0, 0.5)

Thanks Caellian, i hope i can fix this soon, but i'm afraid it could take some time, as i'm not Raiding atm, nor am 80 ^_^'

Disable the fading of the Tooltip is started, but not perfect yet, so it has to wait till the next release. But i hope there are enough good changes for now.

After more testing, i found out why i get no tooltips on Dockingstation. With ''MouseoverAnchor'' set to true, no tooltips appear. However, with the default setting (false), they appear fine.

There are no errors, but mousing over objects on the panel doesn't show any tooltip. Try addons some LDB objects to a panel and mouse over them.

1147 \AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:101: attempt to index local 'color' (a nil value)
And i think i got the same yesterday at malygos, prolly something with party pets/vehicles aswell.

Allright, quickfix for line 101, as it seems you can't gather the unit reaction color if the unit isn't in range, change line 99 to this
Code:
elseif not isPlayerOrPet and UnitInRange(unit) then
About line 341, that would be the same problem so change line 340 to this
Code:
if (_G['GameTooltipTextLeft'..i]:GetText():find('^'..LEVEL)) and UnitInRange(unit) then
The Problem, if i enable this: The Colormodification and also the difficultcolors of the Tooltip aren't working anymore. I see if i get the chance to have RaidPets and try to solve it.

About DockingStation, i got no Errors when i tried today, but saw that Dockingstation itself had problems. Can someone confirm that this bug was DockingStation's fault, or is it just me getting no Errors at all with my upcoming and the 1.5 version?

@pinokkio44: Sorry to say this, but i'll not add these functions, because i don't want to get this Addon bloated. But blackpandemic is right, TipTac is an Addon heavily configurable, and it's not an Memory or CPU hog, from what i know :P

@blackpandemic: Noted. I'll see what i can do about it.

Just use TipTac then.

Getting this error a lot, mainly noticed during pvp:

[22:35:21] Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:248: attempt to concatenate a nil value
[C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:248: in function <Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:242>
