Cellular  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.001
by: totalpackage [More]
Cellular is an instant messenger mod (for only whispers) based on the functionality of an old version of ForgottenChat.

YouTube Intro



Features:
  • Many appearance options
  • History log
  • A way to copy text
  • Reuse of the default chat editbox
  • Whispers shown in separate windows or a tab-based single window
  • Should work with most spam filter mods
  • ...and other basic IM features


How to Use:
  • "/cellular", check Interface Options->AddOns, or right-click a window for options
  • Left-click a window to toggle the editbox
  • Left-click a tab to activate it
  • Shift-left-click and drag a window to move
  • Shift-left-click and drag bottom-right corner to resize
  • Right-click a tab for show/close/options dropdown
  • Middle-click a tab to close
  • Hold ctrl and close any window/tab to quick remove from history
  • Several convenient buttons (some require shift clicking for confirmation reasons)


Warnings:
  • If you have history enabled and notice that Cellular is using a lot of memory, you should cleanup your history entries using Cellular's history options.
  • If you're experiencing crashing due to memory errors, disable and clear your history.
  • If you cherish your history, you can back up the saved variables file and then delete it. You can view it in any text editor later. The location of the saved variables file is here:
    ...\WTF\Account\<Account Name>\<Server Name>\<Character Name>\SavedVariables\Cellular.lua

It exists already. The button is located at the bottom left corner of the whisper window.

Re: Thank you

Would it be possible to get an X button to close the currently visible tab when in tabbed mode? Currently the user has to right-click each tab and select the close option from the dropdown, which is a bit cumbersome when I've run out of tabs.

Since tabs can get very small, I figured a close button in the tab won't work. I could add a close button next to the other top-right buttons or make the current close button close one tab at a time instead of all (when in tab mode). I'll try and see.

Oh yea, you can middle-click a tab to close it.

Previewing Items

I'm finding that I can't preview an item when someone whispers it to me.. ctrl-click does open the preview window. Is there anyway around this?

Works fine for me. Try whispering yourself an item link and testing it out. If problem still exists, disable all or most of your other mods and check again.

OMG middle click! Just add a note to the tab tooltip so users know that middle-click works

Profiles?

I did not see a way to set up different profiles for Cellular.
My problem is that I like my whisper window in a specific location in the UI, but that location is slightly different for each char. I have to reposition it every time I log into a different character.
Is there a way to set position preferences on a per character basis?
I have Windows XP, by the way, in case that makes a difference.

Thank you.

I've added an option to save settings per character. Enable it and test it out. Enjoy.

@Hevanus - heh, the tooltip for that has always been on the tab's right-click menu.

editbox

Cellular steals the editbox from Prat 3.0 when replying to a whisper, and doesn't move it back to the location and size that I set it to via Prat.

I'm going to have to declare Cellular as incompatible with Prat 3.0. That's the third report of something not working cause of the two. Well, at quick glance, you're probably using Prat's undock feature for the editbox. Either don't use that or don't use Cellular.

Re: Re: editbox

...or I could just comment out the calls in Cellular to SetPoints(ChatFrameEditBox, ...) and get the behavior I want

Re: Re: Re: editbox

Heyyy uhh..I've used Celluar since i've known it existed..so much better than WIM..

I was wondering..how much of an operation would it be to make Cellular not pop up at all during combat..then re-appear when combat ends..

I certainly understand the mentality of having just the little titlebar show up during combat..so you can open it if you want to.. mebbe a toggleable option? Show/Hide Title Bar/Window during combat..

I suppose making the full window re-appear after combat would be the most challenging../shrug..not that I know the first thing about addons..LoL..just wondering ;-)
