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

Greetings,

So far I really like Loltip. However, I've been meaning to switch to percentage-based HP values. One of the old loltip pictures shows percentages, yet I can't seem to find the config nor the code needed to get this to work.

Thanks in advance.

seems that everything is working without errors. i've been trying without addons on my 80 druid and with all addons enabled on 62 priest, for about an hour

thanks for the quick fix

Anyway, i changed the code from the GameTooltipStatusBar a bit and hope this will eliminate all this, at least u don't get an error at the login anymore. Also the Addon now checks if a unit and the text for the healthbar is available before doing something with these, so the "..text..thingy..(nil error)" should not popup anymore.
You will not see the UnitHealth right on your first target after login, but well, at least (i hope) this is a solutuon for now. [/b]

Just a small bug, but an annoying one for me - on a character that's 'gray' to me (like a level 3), the guild tag shows up no problem. However, if they're same level or higher, the guild tag does not show up at all. Happens if no addons are running as well.

Any clue what can be causing this?

hi, thanks for answer. sure, dont push it, RL is more important.

but, when you have time; i've been trying lolTip 2.0 without any other addon (except tekErr) enabled and with Wtf folder deleted and been getting these errors:

Code:

maybe others, but there have been many and are very similar.

some of them appeared when getting mounted, some of them when hovering over other players or NPCs

maybe a hint could be this picture:

this was without addons and wtf folder with only loltip and tekerr enabled


and this one occured with addons enabled and when i was in strand of the ancients BG with raid groups pulled out from the RAID UI:

Code:

Interface\FrameXML\RaidFrame.lua:38: in function <Interface\FrameXML\RaidFrame.lua:27>
hope you could resolve these issues, but as said, take your time

thanks

That explained and resolved that issue. Second issue I've discovered seems to be in regards to the Health-bar. Most likely same issue as leizeQ posted. I've changed where the Health-bar should be placed and it would seem that I have to /console reloadui each time I login to a character to get it back to how I want it.

Looks very decent

I just had one problem besides the one described by leizeQ. For bosses the tooltip showed -1Boss. After changing line 314 from

if not level or level == "-1" then

to

if not level or level == -1 then

it worked fine and showed ??Boss.

Re: 2.0 Question

@Voy: core.lua is from version 1.5.2 and under. You should delete old Addons before dragging new ones into your AddOns-folder, to prevent exactly that kind of situation =)

The config is stored in tip.lua now, and i've modified it so that teh standart "PvP"-text will be overwritten by the talents (if activated) .. seems like i had forgotten to deactivate it also f the talents module isn't loaded, thanks for reminding^^
If you're talking about the (PvP) UnitName, then i've got to say that i haven't built in an option to hide that. At least for now.
I'll look for a solution in the next release.

@leizeQ: Thanks for the Report, once again! =)
for the first bug it seems a bit weird, because i have uilt in a securitycheck if unit is avalaible, but i can't test it myself because i'm just 72, and haven't seen any real WotlK content so far, besides a few 5-man's
I hope i'll hit 80 soon so i can test it myself and come up ith an solution but it might have to do something with Vehicles.. Maybe wintergrasp testing^^

The second.. hmm someone mentioned pets are the cause of this.. i wanted to look at it but forgot.

As of now the process will go on slowly, because I've really got much to do on RL, but i'll see if i can get some time to spend on coding , stay tuned xP

And thanks for the comliment =)

2.0 Question

Does core.lua do anything in regards to configuration since the update? Even thou I've made PvP as false it appears and it would seem that tip.lua is the one controlling whatever or not we can change anything.

Today I've finished rewriting lolTip completely.
I hope the bugs will be not present in 2.0, but like i said, i just finished it today and couldn't test it at any real situation.
Also it's Style is once again changed a bit, and i think it turned out very well, i like it.

Is it only me getting the health bar to overlap with the name text on walls and other buildings? NPCs and hostile targets seems to be working fine but Wintergrasp Walls for example have their text overlapped by the health bar.

i am getting 2 errors:

[15:58:54] Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:414: attempt to concatenate a nil value
[C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:414: in function <Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:349>

and

[C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\lolTip\core.lua:174: in function `GameTooltip_UnitColor'
Interface\FrameXML\UnitFrame.lua:151: in function `UnitFrame_UpdateTooltip'
Interface\FrameXML\UnitFrame.lua:133: in function <Interface\FrameXML\UnitFrame.lua:120>

both when a party member is too far away and im hovering over his pet. seems like you are not checking for valid values in UnitCreatureType(unit) and UnitReactionColor[UnitReaction(unit, "player")] in line 174 and 414.

also i removed the whole healthbar part because i was getting errors sometimes (not really sure what was the reason). a weird thing is, after removing the part from 422 to 501 i'm still having the healthbar on the bottom of the tooltip

thanks
