BottleCap
Version: 3.2
by: Ethan Centaurai [More]
Sick and tired with ALL CAPS CHAT? So am I! Therefore, I wrote this addon.

BottleCap is a minimalistic addon which checks for those who accidentally leave their caps lock on, and converts the text into all lower-case chat for you. It also includes a "Verbose Mode", which will indiscriminately converts all chat into lower-case text, regardless of original case.

Compatible with Prat, Chatter and Phanx Chat.

Join the Caps Lock Prevention Society today!


KNOWN ISSUES:
- BottleCap will not alter text in the chat bubbles. Blizzard don't want us messing around with them.

TODO:
- Prevent you from sending ALL CAPS.
- Add support for WIM.

Request

Probably a long shot, but going to ask anyway.

Can you leave the initial letter as a Capital and detect for full stops, leaving the first letter after a full stop as a Capital?

As well as Capitalise the first letter of Names, Classes, Towns, etc?

Yeah, I ask for a lot... but figured I'd ask.

Thanks. =)

This could be do-able, but it could be difficult to make it work perfectly.

Player names I can't do. I could do races/classes/towns etc but it could make this mod more bloated than I want... I'll look into it though.

1) Cheers. =D
2) Yeah that's not really needed. Would be funky if doable but not required.
3) Thought Names of players was possible cause Prat finds them and colours them, but I could be wrong. Either way, races/classes/towns is fine.

Bloat... meh. Most people have to have a decent spec'd PC to run WoW these days and don't mind a bit of bloat.

Of course there are some things that are just totally pointless or extremely bloated. These things should be enable-able/disable-able.

Take Talented for example, nice idea, but too much bloat for me. If he had options or streamlined version, I'd probably use it. But alas, author chooses to throw it all to a take it or leave it type outcome, so I choose to leave it.

Prat3 is great, sure it's a lot of bloat but has options to disable things. Which is great and why I use it.

I guess my point is, if you add more and more to this addon, give options for the user to be able to enable or disable things should counter bloatness that some may not like in an addon.

Thanks for getting back to me. Appreciated. =)

BottleCap is now standalone!

The addon directory has been renamed to "BottleCap". If you used versions of BottleCap prior to 3.0, you will need to delete the "Prat-3.0_BottleCap" folder first.

EDIT: Beta 2 removes the debug lines. Whoops!
EDIT: v3.0 has been officially released! Changes from Beta 2 include fixing glyph links with Verbose Mode enabled.

Is it possible to let BottleCap filter texts with caps to not showing them at all ?

I always ignore players using caps and if BottleCap converts their annoying behaviour to lower-case texts I can't see they're using caps and I maybe still answer them. So I prefer not seeing at all what they're saying.

I've had a go at this but so far I can only get it to work without Prat-3.0 installed.
I'll continue my research and see if I can make it work for both parties (those with, and those without Prat-3.0).

Since removing the Prat-3.0 compatibility layer this is now possible. I hope to add this in the next release.

Works fine for me. Are you using the latest versions of both addons?

It's a shame no-one else does the same (I never knew it was possible until now ).
Besides, I use an Apple Mac and don't have this "windows register".

Yes I am using latest versions of Phanx Chat and BottleCap, it doesn't work with /g, /p, /ra, and /rw chat.

I am well aware of this as I haven't told BottleCap to filter those channels yet, only the most problematic ones. You will find the same thing happens regardless of what (if any) chat mods you have installed.

I will add Guild, Party, Raid and RaidWarning filters in soon.

Ahh.. I wasn't aware. I just added the filter myself.

Thanks.

Great addon - thanks
I was just wondering if it is possible for addon to turn off CAPSLOCK when entering any text input field or frame.
I'm complete ignorant with programming, so sorry if its wrong place to ask, but you're addon is the only one i found that deals with CAPSLOCK - and thank You for that

An option to automatically lowercasify your text and spam you when you leave your caps lock on is in the works.
