Modified Patchset: GUI Tooltips

by robin » Tue Jan 10, 2012 10:10

I've modified Janitor61s patchset for GUI Tooltips.

I integrated the Tooltip as StaticText (not Button) and used the item name as its content. (without adding a new description field)

Here is the GUI Tooltip patch.

without adding a new description field

You should add the ability to add a description field. (= capitalization... Sticky Movestone is better than sticky movestone) :)
Also, the ability to choose the tooltip's color. So, "rare" items could have a yellow tooltip maybe, and food a slightly greener tooltip...
Last thing, the tooltip's frame is too big and a gradiant would be nice (see another patch about tooltips).

I too also think that it should check for a description field and if not found maybe then fallback to the item name ^_^

This doesnt looks so good. I guess the tooltip frame could be automatically adjusted to the letters size
I love mods :D

It's a good start and a desperately needed feature.

It's nice to be important but it is more important to be nice.
