I was wondering, if I wanted to add the string "Hello World" to the mouse over window how exactly would I go about that?
I mean I could create an addon that docks with the window, and places the text inside the borders to look as if I modified the original. However, I am looking to add the words directly into the window by either modifying the original window, or by somehow duplicating the window and then hiding the old one so I could use the new one I created.
The main reason I'd like to do this is because I want to begin exploring the possibilities of adding certain information to that window, for example if a mob is part of a quest, it would say so or perhaps displaying how many times a player has killed you in RvR. But before I get that far I need to understand how to edit default UI elements. Is this something that we have access to, or will I have to hide the old window, and make a new one?
Yeah I noticed that soon after I had posted and felt somewhat embarrassed to see that I did not look very carefully before I had posted, but one thing I did notice about Moth (correct me if I am wrong of course) that it is a"new" tooltip instead of modifying mythics tooltip to add your own customization.
It's not really a big deal that it's not the default, but knowing if we have access to change the default UI can lead to other things as well, such as improving the chat interface (to make it allow coloring similar to Prat or ChatMod for WoW)
Don't get me wrong, I plan on looking into Moth, but I'd still like to know what we can do to the default UI elements.
