How to disable tooltips in combat?

General Discussion
Is there a option for this in options anywhere?
Make a macro.

/script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Temphide)
/stopmacro [btn:1]
/script GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Show);



This will disable tooltips when you left-click the button and re-enable them when you right-click the button.

There should also be a box for this in the Interface Menu Options.
Custom bar mods can do this although I don't think the default UI will. (default UI has the option to disable button swapping during combat, but not tooltips)

hmmm.

Not tooltips, eh? I learned something new today :)
thx.
i could have sworn there was an option for simple tooltips, my girlfriend's UI was like that. It showed the name of the spell but none of the description. I'm trying to look for the option but either its no longer availible or maybe she had a mod i didn't know of.
