Hi there.

I'm trying to find a way to have a numerical HP display on top of a token, without needing to mouseover.
I think i saw a framework do this some time ago, probably using images, but i can't find it anymore.
Anyone can help?

I believe you will have to use "States". The "health bars" are just that, bars. (unless someone found a neat trick with em I'm not aware).

To do it with states, you will need a set of numbers as graphics. Either 0-99 or an easier way, _0-_9 and 0_-9_ with the _ being spaces. You then need a macro to set the states, setting the 10's digits and setting the one's digits and the state would all be in the same corner.

To see it in action, LM's Pathfinder Framework has "Elevation" macros that do this, setting the height as a number in increments of 5 feet. There are probably other examples as well.

Custom MapTool 1.4.x.x Fork: maptool.nerps.net
