LibQTip-1.0

34 - Colspans don't widen tooltip properly

When a colspan is the widest element in the tooltip, the tooltip's width is not calculated properly. The tooltip does get wider, but not wide enough. In my particular case, I have a tooltip with 4 columns, and the colspan has a width of 3. I've attached two screenshots. One shows the actual output, the other shows the approximate expected output (it has too much space on the right, but w/e). I haven't investigated thoroughly, but I wouldn't be surprised if the colspan is calculating the tooltip width assuming it spans all the columns, but it really only spans 3 of them and therefore it ends up being too narrow for its text.

    After reading some of the code, it's clear that LibQTip doesn't really expect to handle layout with different horizontal margins on the columns. The fact that this tooltip has a 0 margin between the first and second columns may be a contributing factor.

    I've uploaded the code that was used to create this tooltip. It's designed to run from within WowLua, so it replaces the visible GameTooltip.
