TipTop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.14
by: Seerah [More]

In my quest to find the perfect tooltip mod, I decided to create my own and have a learning experience. Thus, TipTop was born. TipTop seeks to modify the default tip instead of replace it.



Apparently, my comments are a magnet for bug reports and feature requests, despite the buttons for them to the right to put them on my portal, the FAQ saying to put them on my portal (with links even!), and repeated requests in the comments section to put them at my portal. So I'll put it here in big, colorful, bold letters.

FEATURE REQUESTS AND BUG REPORTS NEED TO BE PUT ON MY PORTAL. IF YOU PUT THEM IN MY COMMENTS, THEY WILL MOST LIKELY BE FORGOTTEN AND/OR IGNORED.
I appreciate the time that you take to report bugs and request things, but please appreciate the time/effort that it takes me to go through them and remember them, and please just put them in the correct location.



Features:
  • optional class-colored border for units (optional support for !ClassColors)
  • optional difficulty-colored border for units
  • option to display class icon before unit's name in tooltip (off by default)
  • option to display guild rank (off by default)
  • added target text line
  • "faded" tip if unit is tapped, dead, or offline
  • custom border, background, and status bar textures
  • custom font selection, plus option of Outline, etc.
  • custom background color/alpha
  • custom health bar color, including class-colored
  • ability to move the tooltip or attach to cursor
  • can show health on statusbar in four different formats
  • health bar may be above or below the tooltip, or be contained inside the tooltip
  • item-quality colored border for items
  • raid icon display
  • added talent text line
  • displays (Rare), (AFK), and (DND) when possible, next to the unit's name
  • option to display elite/rare elite graphic for those units
  • adjust tip background alpha
  • SharedMedia support
  • each character has a choice of using either a global or character specific profile



FAQ:

Where are the options?
The options panel is located on the addons page of the Interface Options panel. Hit escape, go to Interface, click the AddOns tab, and you'll see TipTop listed there. You can also use the slash commands /tiptop or /tip

How do I move the tooltip?
In the TipTop config window, scroll down until you see the anchor settings. You may either anchor the mouse to the cursor, or to a side/corner of the screen. Note that x,y offsets only work when the tip is *not* anchored to the cursor. This is a limitation set by the game's API, and I will not code in the hacks that other tooltip addons use to get around this. I suggest using the alpha setting instead so the tip doesn't block your view so much.

I want the tooltip offset from the cursor - will you add it or is it bugged?
See above.

Where can I find more fonts/borders/bar textures?
For further font choices, I suggest the SharedMedia addon. Have a font you want to use that's not in there? Read the "Instructions for MyMedia.txt" file in the SharedMedia folder.

How can I give feedback?
Feel free to leave your comments/questions here, but all bug reports and feature requests need to go to my portal if you want me to remember to do them.

Can I use your code/textures?
All use of my code and custom textures separate from TipTop must be for your own personal use and they may not be redistributed separate from the addon. You may use snippets of my code in addons you intend to distribute only after receiving permission, and credit must be given.

Can I redistribute this addon?
My addons may only be redistributed in UI compilations, and any mention of the addon must point to its download page or my portal, both on wowinterface.

Do you accept cookies?
I love cookies! Unfortunately, they may turn to crumbs in the mail. Instead, you may donate to my cookie fund via PayPal.

- updated libs
- added Monk class icon
- fixed talents - they now only show Specialization, no talent points
- added option to truncate health text
- cleaned up code a tad
- localized new globals in the upvalues list

- removed "MONOCHROME" font flag because it currently crashes the client

2.9.4
- updated TOC for 4.3

2.9.3
- fixed a bug with the short talents option when mousing over someone with no talent spec

2.9.2
- that was quick! today's mini-patch fixed heirloom item colors (removed override code from TipTop)

2.9.1
- attempt to fix Blizz bug where Heirloom items are colored white (this only fixes the tooltip borders, I filed a bug report to fix on the servers)

- fix for random/rare error with talents

I've seen it once or twice, but not so much (or early enough) as to notice why or when it would start happening.

Thanks,
I saw and replied to your reports, Gridspace. I had seen the first but forgot to mention that it was a known issue. I hadn't noticed the second, thank you.

It could possibly be an issue with Healbot. I actually seem to remember a similar issue when mousing over that addon a couple of years ago.

Try changing line 524 of tiptop.lua from this:
Lua Code:
  1. if event == "UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT" then
to this:
Lua Code:
  1. if event == "UPDATE_MOUSEOVER_UNIT" and tt:IsShown() then

Hi there,

Is there any possibility we could have 'race & class' appear when mousing over dead targets? As far as I can tell, these are replaced with 'corpse' by default. It would make combat ressing a lot easier if I can tell what class I have at mouseover.

Just to add, I can get round this problem by enabling 'class icons'. However, I would prefer the cleaner look with them disabled.

Thanks,

A question

Hello Seerah,

Lovely addon but I have a question. When you mouseover a unit, or a buff or debuff, the tooltip appears where one would expect it to (where you have it set with the options in the addon). However when you mouse over an item or a spell on your action bars, the tooltip anchors to the mouse. I also noticed that those last two (spell and item) are different tooltips, as one can be moved by moveanything and the other cannot. The interesting thing is that the borders i have setup with your addon seem to apply to all three categories of tooltip, yet I can only move one with your addon.

So in short

There appears to be three types of tooltip (maybe more):

1. Hovering over unit, buffs, or debuffs. Skinned and moved by your addon.

2. Hovering over items in bags or banks etc. Skinned by your addon but not moved, can be moved with moveanything.

3. Hovering over menu options or spells on an action bar. Skinned by your addon but does not seem to be movable by anything (your addon, moveanything, any option in blizz default that I could find).

My question, uuuuuhhhhh your thoughts i guess? I would love to be able to either move all three or skin them separately.

Thank you for all your work
