About TooltipItemIcon

Adds an icon to the reference tooltip (from clicking on an item link in chat) and the popup tooltips (when mousing over an item).

Icons can be displayed in a small frame to the side of the tooltip, in the top line of the tooltip, or used as a background for the tooltip.

Works for Items, Spells, Achievements and Currency.


TooltipItemIcon uses slash commands to change modes, to enable/disable certain tooltips, and to change the location of the icon frame around the tooltip. These are documented in the included commands.txt file, but here are some examples:

/ttii inside {switch to Inside mode}

/ttii background {switch to Background mode}

/ttii title {switch to Title mode}

/ttii frame {switch to Frame mode, the default}

/ttii gametooltip off {disables the icon for the popup tooltip}

/ttii compare off {disables the icon for all comparison-type tooltips}

/ttii gametooltip lefttop {moves the icon for the popup tooltip to the left side}

/ttii screen lefttop {'screen' applies the requested command to all tooltips currently visible on screen}

/ttii reset {reset all settings to the defaults}


Should work with any language version of WoW; however the Slash commands are in English.

Compatible with LinkWrangler and some other Tooltip AddOns.

    thx for update, but glyphs still needs some love. there is no icon for the link when you "shift+click" it in chat.


  • #73

    There doesn't appear to be a way to get the icon for a Glyph in a chat link - the available functions are only able to get icons for your own Glyphs Frown


  • #71

    Version 1.62

    TOC update and support for currency tokens

  • #65

    thx for addon, works great even now in 5.0.4
    but just a few things:

    -not like a big deal but glyphs's icons doesn't shows up.
    -icons for any kind of currency doesn't shows up

    -there is a new tooltip for battle pets & their abilities, so icon doesn't shows up on it. 

    and maybe add something new & add an option for left side icon like this? :)

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'll look into Glyphs and Currency, and possibly other types that currently don't show up.

    BattlePets are a completely different animal though - technically their 'tooltips' aren't really GameTooltips, and so they lack the functions that TTII relies on. They are so different that it may be easier to just write a new AddOn for them (TooltipPetIcon perhaps?)

    Currency tokens turned out to be fairly easy. Glyphs not so easy, but will keep them in mind for future versions...

  • #69

    thx for tip, just noticed you actually mentioned this before, maybe just add it into description?

    well, if you decide to write this addon let us know here. ;)

  • #67

    Also, to move the icon to the left-top in frame mode, if you know the name of the tooltip:

    /ttii itemreftooltip lefttop

    if you don't know the name, get the tooltip visible on screen and:

    /ttii screen lefttop
