About Tooltip - LuaTexts

(former CowTip_LuaText)

Allows to configure the content of unit-tooltips with custom Lua-Codes.

It uses a modified version of PitBull4's LuaText-ScriptEnv.
Some functions were removed.

    Hello all,

    i have a question;
    Is it possible to make the background green when the targeted unit is in
    A: Your real id friends list
    B: In your noirmal Friendslist
    C In your guild

    (it may also be a Textline like "a Friend" or when in friendslist the 'friendslists notel' is shown or combinated)

    Hi is it possible to hide the fraktion? I can´t find it in the lines....

    Thx for the help


  • #21

    The faction-line is not part of the original tooltip.

    It's added by the game when tooltip-luatext is finished with all the work, similar to quest-progress-information.

    It's not possible to remove a single tooltip line after it's been rendered. One can only clear it and redraw it. Everytime I try that, the line gets back in... Sorry

    needing lua help. I want to display the target's guild reputation rank on the target frame. So far all I can find is GetguildInfo(unit) and that returns up to 3 options: Guild Name, Guild Rank, and a number which I assume is the 'level' of the guild rank assigned.

    anyone know what the code is to pull up guild reputation?

    also, when i used GetGuildInfo(unit) on any target, it always shows MY guild info, and not the info of my target. how to do right?

    how to have the same thing as cowtip, with the tooltip of other player who show up and follow them?
  • #17
    I have used CowTip so far, but stopped working with Patch 4.0.1 :(

    Is Tooltip - LuaTexts an alternative?
  • #14
    First of all, thanks for a nice addon.
    I would like to know if there is any way to move the "tip anchor" so it won't be blocking my other UIs.
  • #15
    use MoveAnything

    one of the best mods out there
  • #16
    Thanks. :)

    It seems this addon is independent to Cowtip now. But health bar is gone if I only enable this addon without Cowtip. Any way to fix it?
  • #12
    The LuaText-module is a _copy_ of Pitbull4's. They are not necessarily compatible though. There are function that are only available in this addon and there might be functions only available in Pitbull4.

    If you feel that some function should be included create a Ticket.
  • #11
    testing this with default LuaTexts from Pitbull4, it doesn't work at all.

    If I add any custom text at all, my tooltip shows only player name and ignores all other lines, regardless of wether I changed the code for that line or not. (e.g i change the code for Target in line 3, the Guild info in line 2 disappears)
  • #10
    Do your additional helper functions (e.g. TalentSpec()) work in pb4? or are they CowTip only?
  • #9

    Umm how do I include stuff like "Rare"...or "Elite" and etc? I did try reading the help files, but I couldn't find syntax for err...wtv "Rare" and etc are belonging to.

    Hello, could you share your luatext for the tooltip in the screenshot? In particular, I want to know how you got it to show the talent line (as pictured: Affliction 52/0/15). I want to switch my CowTip from libdogtag to luatext but I really like the ability to show the talents, and I don't see how to do that with luatext. tyvm!
