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.

    None of the textbox information shows up other than my name, level and race. I've had this problem since the 3.0 upgrade. Any idea on how to fix this? I have reinstalled cow-tip many times and still can't figure it out.

    Here's the bug I was talking about in my previous post. This tooltip is at the far right of my screen and my target, or the target's target, will break through the tooltip. This only occurs when I highlight a unit frame and not when I put the cursor over my actual target.

    Despite being set to immediate hide, Unit frame tooltips do not immediately hide and just slowly fade. Using r34.

    I noticed another bug when highlighting unit frames. My tooltip is anchored to the bottom-right of my screen. Any time my target has a target of their own, I have it displayed like so: <target>:<target's target>. However, the tooltip won't re-size properly and my target's target gets pushed off-screen. Only happens when highlighting unit frames.

    Small bug I'm finding with custom Tips.  Setting [PercentMP:Percent:Paren:PowerColor] makes Warrior Rage percentages merge slightly into the line above (which is [PercentHP:Percent:Paren:HPColor]), but only on the right side!  I'm going to do a [if] statement for now, but it might be something to look at later.

    Getting a problem with CowTip. Flightpath costs, vendor values etc are vanishing on zone change. I disabled CowTip, relogged and the values were on the default tooltip, then back on CowTip when I logged in again after re-enabling it. Then I hearthed and poof, values gone again.

    I get that same error and I have DogTag installed. PitBull loads without a problem for me. Perhaps CowTip is loading before DogTag is?
