LibQTip-1.0 help

I have rewritten FeedTillers from scratch, as it badly needed it for a few reasons. Sure, MoP is way behind us, but some people still use this addon.

Two features I am trying to add are:
  1. The ability to hide any of the Tillers with whom you are Best Friends on saved variable toggle
  2. Clicking a line in the display to send TomTom a waypoint arrow to the Tiller's farm if he/she isn't at Halfhill
I mostly have the code working, but some things elude me. I haven't figured out LibQTip-1.0's API well enough to allow moving the mouse down the frame from whatever LDB display the user has. Instead, when I try to move the mouse down, the whole tooltip display disappears. I'd also like to highlight the line like a faded bar.

Speaking of LibDataBroker-1.1, I have had bug reports that ElvUI and TukUI do not support FeedTillers, but I have zero clue why that might be the case.

Next, I can't be sure I am using TomTom's API correctly, as wading through its code hunting for API arguments is challenging.

Then I have noticed that on first load the tooltip doesn't populate the food items correctly, but I have a guess; I just haven't tested it, but if someone notices where I have erred, I will be appreciative. My guess is move line 116 to line 102.

Finally, assuming that the user is Best Friends with all the Tillers, I would like the help instructions at the bottom to remain, but those go away when toggling Hide_Exalted.

Is there anything else I have missed that fresh eyes can spot?

Hi,
To stop the tooltip closing, you will need to add to your dataObject_OnLeave(self) function.

Lua Code:
  1. local function dataObject_OnLeave(self)
  2.     if MouseIsOver(self.tooltip) then return end
  3.     if lqt:IsAcquired("FeedTillersTT") then
  4.         lqt:Release(self.tooltip)
  5.     end
  6.     self.tooltip = nil
  7. end

As for the problem with you hint text dissapearing, I think its because when you hide_exalted the block of code at line 137 runs and then redraws the tooltip before you've added the hints to the tooltip. I may be wrong. You might want to re-write your condition check.

Thank you, and sorry for the late reply. That definitely worked. Now I just have to get TomTom's waypoint to function, and I think I am in business.

I gibbled something. Since ElkFactions has similar functionality, I tried copying that code, but now my entire plugin won't display in a Broker bar.

This probably has something to do with lines 147 - 164 but that's just a guess. Why would I get no display at all?

When you create the dataobj, the function actually returns a reference to the data object, which you weren't catching. Take the creation of the data object out of the Addon Loaded event and the function.

Change the block at 183 to something like below:

Lua Code:
  1. local dataobj = LibStub("LibDataBroker-1.1"):NewDataObject(addon_name, {
  2.         type = "data source",
  3.         text = "Feed Tillers",
  4.         icon = [[Interface/ICONS/Achievement_Profession_ChefHat]],
  5.         OnClick = dataObject_OnClick,
  6.         OnEnter = dataObject_OnEnter,
  7.         OnLeave = dataObject_OnLeave
  8.     })

And remove the CreateBroker() call at 207.

  3.     if lqt:IsAcquired("FeedTillersTT") then
  4.         lqt:Release(self.tooltip)
  5.     end
  6.     self.tooltip = nil
  7. end

As for the problem with you hint text dissapearing, I think its because when you hide_exalted the block of code at line 137 runs and then redraws the tooltip before you've added the hints to the tooltip. I may be wrong. You might want to re-write your condition check.
Forgive my ignorance but does the tooltip itself have an onleave event? I an able to interact with the tooltip but when the mouse leaves it it stays there until i mouse back onto the LDB point and leave it.

Taking a look at the LibQTip-1.0 api here at WowAce, the tooltip doesn't appear to have an automatic OnLeave function. The way I understand it is that the tooltip is a (collection of) frame/s, so you could register a function to the tootip's OnLeave event, but the easier way to close it is provided by the API. :SetAutoHideDelay(delay, alternateFrame, releaseHandler)

EG:
Lua Code:
  1. -- Hide after 0.25 seconds outside of the tooltip or an LibDataBroker data object
  2. function LDB_DO:OnEnter(self)
  3.     tooltip = LibStub('LibQTip-1.0'):Acquire('MyFooBarTooltip', 5, "LEFT", "CENTER")
  4.     tooltip:SmartAnchorTo(self)
  5.     tooltip:SetAutoHideDelay(0.25, self)
  6.     DisplayTooltip() -- Tooltip population function
  7. end

The above code is from the LibQTip API reference.
