CowTip is a customizeable, tag-based tooltip addon. It is based on Rock and other libraries of the community. It is currently in beta.

CowTip isn't meant to be the smallest addon humanly possible, but it will be clean, configurable, and have the same polish I afford my other addons.

    Lehto89's fix below worked. How hard would it have been for the maintainer (ANY maintainer) to have done that in the first place and posted the updated package?

    This is, by far, my favorite ToolTip, and I have tried MANY of them.

    It is such a shame this MOD is not being maintained.

    Ya, sure, random people have found work a-rounds to prop this up due to lack of maintenance, but that is not sufficient.

    One day this mod will die on a game patch and need more than jury-rigging to keep it going.

    Why is there only one maintainer? If ckknight is so busy doing Curse related stuff that, as has been mentioned on various boards, he can't keep up then why not add maintainers?

    I guess I need to go try "Tooltip - LuaTexts" - which actually contains modified "tooltip" code COPIED out of ckknight's PitBull4 addon. (That is even declared in the mod's description.) Wonder why it was not added to this mod? Kind of a funny situation..... not.

    PS. Yes, I, like 90% of the people coming to this site, know this is free and is not a purchased product. I just believe a comment that doesn't scroll off the comments page could be put up so people know SOMETHING rather than nothing. Even a comment like "I hate you all - now go die" is better than nothing.

    This is a definitely a case where silence is not golden.

    Also, I am not trying to "dis" ckknight. He is actually one of my favorite authors - has been since Ace1.

    I have this working with DogTag3, but I can't change any settings. Luckily I set it up a while back so it looks ok, but once in a while, I try to change the bar textures and I'm not able to. Any chance of an update?.... because I like it... I like it a lot...

    Taken from

    I´ve updated LibDogTag-3.0, LibDogTag-Unit-3.0 and it works like a charm again. Place them into \World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\CowTip\libs. All of them can be downloaded seperately.

    and yea I can confirm it works! Here is the DL links:

    Quote from spikeles @Curse: " The config ain't working tho but some1 wrote this at curse aswell; Havn't tried it yet tho:

    To fix the config interface so it works, open the file: CowTip\libs\LibRockConfig-1.0\LibRockConfig-1.0.lua

    change the line: local expand = (tex == Interface\Buttons\UI-PlusButton-Up) to: local expand = (tex == Interface\Buttons\UI-PlusButton-UP) "

    ck, if you're still around please let us know if we can expect an update. CowTip is the best tip addon I've ever used.
