eTooltip
Version: 1.01
by: erica647 [More]
This is a little tooltip mod I made that just does what I want... reposition, scale, and adds a border texture to match my layout. If you want a tooltip mod that has all the bells and whistles, this is not for you. For the minimalist that just wants to change some basic tooltip attributes through lua, this may work well for you too.

As I'm still learning lua, I took bits and pieces of code from other mods to get what I wanted. Also the border texture is from a compilation I found as I was looking around on some of the various mod sites. Thanks to the other mod authors whose work I perused to make this little mod!

NOTE: Please read the readme.txt file before installation (which is included in the etooltip folder).
Updated TOC for 3.0.2 patch.

I was fiddling with it trying to make it anchored to the cursor. I got it half way lol, it slid up and down the right of the screen lol.

To install the addon, you must extract the two folders. Note that the folders go in two seperate locations.

The folder "ToolTips" should go in the Interface folder, will look like this:
\World of Warcraft\Interface\ToolTips\



The folder "eToolTip" should go in the AddOns folder, will look like this:
\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\eToolTip\



There is no way to edit the settings in game. To edit the location of your tooltip, you must open the file \World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\eToolTip\eToolTip.lua in a text editor such as Notepad.


Look at the following, it will define the location of your tooltip in game.
Code:
-- Set the anchor and offset --
	tooltip:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT",UIParent,"BOTTOMRIGHT", 0, 15)
If you know about the the anchors, you can use those to help you out. If not, you may leave the BOTTOMRIGHT sections there, and simply edit the numbers.

The first number is the horizontal axis. 0 will set it near the far right. to move it left, you simply decrease the number. Try different numbers until you find the spot you would like. Note the negative number. Negative numbers move the tooltip left, positive numbers move it right.
Code:
-100   moves left
100  moves right
The second number is the vertical axis. 15 sets it a little off the bottom of the screen, which is what blizzard sets as default so you can see bars at the bottom. To move it up or down, again simply change the number. Negative numbers will move it down, positive numbers will move it up.

Once you have made your changes to the file, save it, and open up wow. Then check out where your tooltip is to see if you like its location.

As for the background and border colors, I havent been able to figure out how to do anything with that, but all is well for me because I like the way its set up already lol.

I hope this helps, this is how I set it up. If anyone wants to make it easier or something feel free lol.

I like this, as it does exactly what I want. My recommendation would be to make the readme.txt file a bit more comprehensive since there isn't any kind of configuration UI. For example, explain how to change the anchor point (I moved mine from BOTTOMRIGHT to TOPLEFT, for example). Editing a .lua file isn't something the average user is okay with.

What Tooltips folder? Do you mean I should CREATE a Tooltips folder in the Interface folder?

Hi... this is just a really simple mod that's supposed to work right out of the box. You can adjust the scale and position but it's done in the code itself... very much like other mods like oUF layouts. The default setting btw should scale the tooltip to 80% and anchor it to the bottom right corner with a Y offset to make room for the healthbar.
