How to show XP AND % on my statis bars?

UI and Macro
You know how in the Interface of the game menu, you can change the statis bars text...
How it will show No Text, Number Based, or the Percentage.

I would like to make it so it shows the Numbers AND the Percent.
Right now I have it as (XP 100/500), I would like it to be: XP 100/500 (20%)

How would I do that? I downloaded the "User Interface Customization Tool" from here (http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=21465), what do I do with it?

I have extracted it, and reading some of the files, but I don't know what to edit or where to put the files.

I think I have found what I am looking for (In the FrameXML folder, there is a file called: TextStatusBar.lua), but like I said, I don't know what to change or where to put the files.

If anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

I think he's talking about his XP percent though, on the XP bar. Even though the title of the thread indicates otherwise.

You might try XPBarNone, though.

Not that, but it is close.

Go to Game Menu > Interface > Status Text.

You will see if you check the "Experience Bar Text" you will see the text down right ubove your Actionbar, it will read like "XP 83510 / 154000".
But then if you check the "Display Percentages" it will show up as "XP 55%".

What I want to do, is edit my Interface code so that instead of seeing eather the number, or the %, I see both. Example:

XP 83510 / 154000 (55%)
you click esc for game menu then click interface then click status text and finally clickbox that says numeric value and change to both or percentage whichever you prefer :)
Ok what I want to know is how to make the numbers that appear in the bubble when you hover over the purple xp bar, how do you get them to show on the bar with out having to hover over the bar itself
You know, Blizzard doesn't charge you extra for starting a NEW topic with a question rather than necroing a four-year-old one, honest.

So much has changed in the game since 2013 that virtually no answer you see here can be guaranteed as relevant to today's version.
