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

Hey thanks

In fact, i'm an idiot. My buddy told me exactly the same, but i got other things in my mind and simply forgot about it >.<

I will upload it immediately with the code splitted into smarter bits.

Next things i will do sometime will be:
*Getting rid of this damn Space between last line and Healthbar if the unit has PvP
*Get the targetline updating if mouseovertarget is switching his/her target.

Don't expect them soon, but from time to time i'll work on it.

/e I didn't know if i have should put it there after i splitted it, if someone still has the error i know where it belongs. Just wasn't sure so please report :>

hmpf, i'm defently doing something wrong :S
One time i had the Errormessage myself, but after /rl it wasnever seen again. Hopefully the next update will fix this, i added the "if (not unit) then" everywhere i thought it would make sense.

anyways, I Started to work up updating for the targetline the last two days. Progress is fine as i'm learnig much, but didn't get it to work right now. I feel there is not much space between the fuction is now and the finish.

edit line 41 to
tooltip:SetOwner(parent,"ANCHOR_CURSOR");
and comment out or delete line 42.
that should do the trick.

I was wondering how to do that...I have no programing or mod creating experience at all myself. or was wondering if you could set up a options menu so we could decide to anchor it to the mouse or not?
thanks

First go to Interface/AddOns/lolTip/ and open core.lua (at least) with notepad, i recomment notepad++ (yeah there are much others out there, don't start a war whats better, or whats worse, mkay? )
Then the stuff you qouted should make sense =)
I you decided just to open the file with notepad, get nifty!
*do "strg + f"
*type "tooltip:SetOwner" without quotes. Enter
*you will jump to the text. replace the text in the lua file with this one here.
*search for "tooltip:SetPoint" with the same method as before.
set two "--" without quotes before that, so it should look like "--tooltip:SetPoint"
Save & close file and have fun playing in the World of Warcraft =D

Working heavily on new version.
Very much improvemments after my bud was checking my mess there.

I don't think i'll add an optionsmenu, because if you want a really high configurable, easy to use and lightweight tooltip, you should get TipTac for sure.
Maybe i'm adding a slashcommand for mouseover/your defined anchor, but don't know yet. I have other priorities atm.

If you take the time to actually look inside it you'd see one image named 'UI-StatusBar' and another named 'UI-Tooltip-Border'.

Hopefully you can imagine that these are for, the status bar, and the border.

When does it appear? like, when somebody hushes through your screen?
I'll sure look into that, but as is see you're using the SVN version. Is there another error beside of this one, and the healthbar one? (i think i fixed the healthbar, testet on a full ab yesterday)

I've noticed a thing with the latest update. The target-line update is awesome, but have a small flaw... (Used myself to test it out), when i hover myself (no target), it shows as normal, but when i target myself (still hovering my UF), the target-line appears behind the statusbar for some reason. When i hover myself again while still targeting me the line moves back to its original spot.

Hope you can resolve this issue. =)
