Show tooltip on the worldmap.

Working on an addon and it displays pins (icons) on the worldmap.
Now I am working to add a tooltip to the pins.

It works when I dont have have the woldmap fully zoomed out.
The tooltips are visible,

But when I have the worldmap fully zoomed out, the toolip is still there but it is displayed underneath the map.
So its visible when I close the map but of course that's not what I want

Anyone have a clue?

Below is the part of the code that handles the placement of the pins and tooltips.

And on a side note, any advice on making my code more effiecient is always welcome.
Lua Code:
  1. --[[    *** Deathcounter ***
  2. Written by      : Yukyuk, EU-Moonglade
  3. --]]
  4.  
  5. --[[    *** Credits ***
  6. Credits go to   : The creators of Gathermate2, Nevcairiel and Xinhuan.
  7.                   If it wasn't for their clear way of coding the displaying
  8.                   of pins would have been a far greater challenge.

This is all I use in my flight map addon:
Lua Code:
  1. WorldMapTooltip:SetOwner(MyButton, 'ANCHOR_RIGHT')
  2. WorldMapTooltip:AddLine('Some Text')
  3. WorldMapTooltip:Show()

You should be able to use tooltip:SetFrameStrata("DIALOG") when it's shown and then back to "TOOLTIP" when it hides - I had to do something similar in Frenemy to make LibQTip work with the built-in Blizzard Friends frame.

How did you fix it? I'm facing the same issue right now.

EDIT: I solved it setting the parent of my tooltip, my WorldMapDetailFrame child frame.

Thanks.
