Tip

Version: v2.02
by: Taraezor [More]

Description
Displays asset IDs at the foot of Tooltips. E.g. Spell IDs, Item IDs, various Pet IDs, various Appearance IDs, etc.

Perfect for researching at Wowhead, macro authors trying to squeeze within character limits, and AddOn authors needing to identify game assets.

How to Use
Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For configuration enter '/tip' in chat.

/tip to see a menu of possible commands.

/tip a to toggle 'on' or 'off' inserting a blank line above Tip's ID line(s). Use '/tip a ?' to see the current setting.

/tip u n, where 'n' represents seconds and must be >= 0 and <= 0.5. Default is 0.05. Use '/tip u' or '/tip u ?' to see the current setting. Experiencing screen flicker on a tooltip? Lower this value slightly until satisfied.

This is the update interval between those few tooltips which were unable to be eloquently "hooked" and instead must be updated/added by brute force during regular update cycles. A very low value might impact cpu/fps and a value lower than 1/fps would effectively request updates as often as possible. A value accurate to milliseconds is supported. A high value, even above 0.07 on my old computer, caused screen flicker for artifact tooltips. Blizzard often uses a value of 0.2 for tooltips. A high value would relieve any perceived cpu/fps pressure and would be perfectly okay for the other 95% of Tip!

Features
😃 Tip does NOT flicker (unlike other Tooltip AddOns)
😃 Just about all possible tooltip sources are included. For example: Artifacts, auctions, Battle Pets, Appearance Wardrobe + Illusions, bags, spell book, bank, transmogrification, currency, hyperlinks (chat links), talents, NPCs, friendly players, gear, mounts, toys, buffs & debuffs
😃 No Ace libraries = no bloat
😃 Ultra small cpu/memory footprint

If You Like Tip
Nobody can resist an adorable Raptor Hatchling pet or the magnificent Netherwing Drake and Long-Forgotten Hippogryph mounts. You'll of course need Dark Soil for The Tillers friendships and a Loose Pebble for your Dog! While fishing you'll wonder if This Scampi Happening? Oh, but it is! Why not Let Minnow about your fishing poles and you surely Cod Do Batter with your fishing achievements. While adventuring, map your way with X and Y coordinates and always go the Hard Yards measuring distance. Have some fun with Yarrr for pirate Tooltips or turn geek with Fibonacci. See all the hidden game asset IDs with Tip or Enumerate your frames. Achievement critters and NPCs receive some Rare Love and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset.

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend". 😊

v2.00

Many changes and inclusions.

A departure from previous versions... I now stoically force some tooltips to be updated or to even appear. As there were no eloquent hooks provided by Blizzard (that I could find at least) I have resorted to polling during the regular OnUpdate cycles.

This is where other Tooltip AddOns go wrong in relying upon this, in my opinion. It introduces flicker. In Tip you might notice it during Artifacts and the Quest Log.

I have provided a configuration parameter to tweak the regularity of the updates in order to remove any flicker. I provide this parameter as I guesstimate that it is system dependent and my own ancient system is far from typical. The default setting works for me - no flicker!

Major Update!

I am working on a major infusion of IDs. Anything missing which you think I might have overlooked for this update? Post here please ASAP!!!

E.g.: In the coming update I have Reputations / Friendships pretty much covered through to exalted / BFF!

v1.05

Anything you see linked in chat will now have its internal "hyperlink" ID and ID type recognised by Tip. Whether this be Achievements, Quests or whatever. While testing I could not break this. But then, surely one of you can rise to the challenge (sigh).

Those parts of the UI not covered by Tip, such as Achievements, can simply be linked into chat by YOU and when clicked on, Tip will do its thing as of v1.05.

Still resisting the temptation to complicate this AddOn. I am leaning towards allowing you to select the colour of the Tip text and being able to hide the word "Tip". Very easy to do. Also setting up to allow localisation although hardly necessary for this AddOn. Thoughts?

v1.02

Added some new things not previously covered by Tip, such as various types of quest items and inbox/mail items.

Note that I have not added quest SPELLS yet as I don't currently have a toon with a spell to be learnt while doing a quest or as a quest reward. I'm pretty sure I know how to code it but just can't be released into the wild as yet.

v1.01

Couple of label typos snuck through. Plus added support for the socketing of gems, both gems placed but not yet saved as well as already socketed / saved.
