Minstrel: Update tooltips and stance-changes

Hi there everyone,

I have decided to maintain the old KragenBars as KragenBars2 and asked for errors at the different classes. The first one posted is already the one I have some big problems with.

Thats the description of this error:
Quote:
Background:
Many Minstrel skills are exchanged for others when the stance changes.

What's broken:
While KragenBars correctly changes out the icons when the stance changes, the mouse-hover tooltips are not.
It always shows the skill tooltips that were in effect for the stance at the time KB was launched.

As a guide to replicating the error and to see what should happen, here is an example.
If I've the Melody of Battle skill in a LOTRO UI quickslot and in a KB quickslot, then change from the default of "no stance" to "war-speech", the icon for Melody of Battle changes to Timeless Echoes of Battle in both the LOTRO UI and KB quickslots.
But on mouse hover, the tooltip in KB is still for MoB whereas the tooltip in LOTRO UI is now for TEoB.

My workaround in play is to unload/reload KB when the desired stance is active.
Because I haven't found any issues in KragenBars2 I've tested the tooltip thing with tonic bars. Same error.

Does anyone know if it's a bug at the turbine api?

Best regards,
Lumbra

Perhaps when skill is set into quickslot, it derives its tooltip. Perhaps iterate through each quickslot and unset / set each shortcut value, and see if that triggers game to regrab the tooltips.

Thank you, it seems that this is the answer for my problem.
