Debuff tooltip

Is there a way to get tooltips on the player debuffs that are on the HUD. I would like to know what the effects of unknown debuffs are.

If tooltips aren't available, is there an alternative way to see the effects of a debuff?

Tooltips should be working on the player debuffs. Not sure why they aren't if you aren't seeing them.

A week ago I posted an explanation of why, along with a patch for it, here:

http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...1&postcount=12

The debuff icons on the HUD are SecureButtonTemplates. The code tries to enable/disable their mouse sensitivity during combat based on whether they currently display anything, which is forbidden.

The fix leaves them mouse-sensitive all the time, but turns the handler for mouse events on/off as appropriate, which is allowed.

I've been using the file I posted for about 10 days and it works just fine, for anyone who wants to avoid the problem.

Thanks Belechannas -- I had forgotten all about that fix.

When you log in to WoW, what version does nUI report has been loaded?

Hmmm... 5.07.12 should have working tooltips on still auras. I'll look into it.

It appears this is still not working properly, at least for me.
Not a gamebreaker, but does get annoying at times.

Debuff Tooltip on HUD

I am inserting a picture so you can see what's being talked about, I think. The fix mentioned in this thread does work, but requires some digging into the code and changing things. I'm no developer but I figured it out. Had some trouble with saving the file as it wanted to default to Word, which makes NUI unstable/inoperable.

Is there a way to maybe inset a "/" command in-game so this can be toggled on/off?

Not at the moment as it would still involve a reload of the game. Version 6 will have a GUI option to make the customizations easier from what Scott posted in another thread somewhere.

My latest debuff addon stopped working so I figured I'd check to see if there were any updates on implementing debuff tooltips into nUI. Figures the lack of them were to a bug for the past couple years and that I never knew they were suppose to be there.

I seem to recall someone saying the reason nUI didn't have them was because people were complaining they got in the way. So I just didn't bother checking up on it. I think that was either in BC or Wrath. Hehe.

So anyway, my debuff tooltips aren't showing up and haven't been for....some time.

The only way to enable tooltips for buffs and debuffs in the hud is to play with the layout files to enable them.

Ah here we are:

http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...=buff+tooltips

That thread shows you how to make the necessary changes.
