TipTop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.1.1
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)
  • various class icon textures to choose from (thanks, gossipgirlxo and Flat Player Icons!)
  • 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 five 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
  • option to shorten player names
  • option to color player names by class



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.

I certainly don't know any LUA and this is a pretty nasty workaround, but it gets TipTop working for anyone that is desperate

Instead of commenting out, you can add support for SetBackdrop by adding these parameters
Code:
BackdropTemplateMixin and "BackdropTemplate"
For more info and an example, see https://github.com/Stanzilla/WoWUIBu...system-changes


I updated my copy, see https://pastebin.com/gTtRCPFQ for the full file and https://pastebin.com/s0YahpKj for just the diff.

I'm sure I missed a few things, for instance just now I saw that there is a local table "tooltips" with references to "WorldMapTooltip" whichs no more..

The issue relates to this post (I think):
One of the major changes in 9.0 is a change to SetBackdrop. The TL/DR, on live, 100% of frames support backdrops, whether they are used or not. 1000s of frames between every addon and default UI, even frames that never see such as event frames have backdrops. UI team realized this is a serious performance issue. so effective in 9.0, no frames have backdrops unless the addon imports/inherits the backdrop template.
this means addons that aren't importing them now throw nil errors with method "Setbackdrop". This issue affects a large number of addons.
I certainly don't know any LUA and this is a pretty nasty workaround, but it gets TipTop working for anyone that is desperate

Cool Thank you!!!

Have always enjoyed this addon - even since some of the earliest releases. My favorite part was how it could tell you what class some NPCs are flagged as. Always felt like a fun easter egg to find random "healer" NPCs flagged as mages for whatever reason.

Anyways, I would also really like an update, but if not (totally understand) thank you for all your work on this over the years!

Add another voice saying that Tiptop and WatcherWabbit are two of my most used and twiddled with addons. I hope your break has been refreshing, and this year hasn't been completely awful to you.

Thank you for your addons! If you choose not to continue them, are you willing to have someone else take them over?

Aaw that is sad I really liked this addon for years with the way it shows hp numbers and the elite/rare icons
You could maybe let other people test it for you or take a look at the ptr that should be available without a sub.

Anyway still thank you for all you did for us in case you won't update!

Well that's a shame. If you don't come back, thanks for the awesome addon!

If you do come back, I have submitted a bug report for you.

Guild is already in the tooltip. It's part of the default UI.
