Version: v7.47

Type /bcm to configure BasicChatMods, a basic and modular approach to chat customization.

By default BCM will allow you to drag your chat frames to the very edge of the screen, the remaining customization is done in BCM's modules which can be enabled or disabled at will.

A few of the current modules include:
  • Button Hiding
  • Channel Name Customization
  • Chat Copy
  • Font Customization
  • Chat Frame Justification
  • Player Name Customization
  • Real Id Class Coloring
  • Sticky Customization
  • Tell Target
  • Timestamp Customization
  • URL Copy

Class Colors: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click chat frame tab > Settings > Tick Boxes
Combat Log Timestamps: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click combat log tab > Settings > Formatting > Show Timestamp. Repeat this for every combat log, e.g. "Self", "Everything", "What happened to me?", "Kills".
v7.47 - chatcopy: Revert disabling keyboard input.

v7.46 - another oqueue compatibility fix.

v7.45 - chatcopy: Disable keyboard input on the popup, scroll to the bottom of the popup automatically after opening.

Again, these are vague statements. There's nothing broken with the current version. I don't anticipate changing much when EU gets patched.

What exactly needs "updated"?

argh, I get happy that Blizz adds features brought to the game by our favorite addons, but then does it half way. A couple things of note:

Blizz's "mouse wheel scrolling in chat" lacks the feature of holding Shift when scrolling to jump to the very top or very bottom of the chat.

I can't move the chat window up against the left side of the screen. Even if the buttons are hidden, the chat frame can not be placed flush against the left side. It's as if something is preventing the buttons from being placed off-screen even though they are hidden.

There's now a new "IM" chatbox which has a frame visible at all times. However in your Blizz options letting you swtitch back to "classic" chat boxes removing that editbox.

Setting the insets to 0 should fix that.

ChatFrame1:SetClampRectInsets(0,0,0,0)

To move EditBox need:

FOR CLASSIC CHAT
-------------------
editbox.lua:

old:
local eb = ChatFrameEditBox

new:
local eb = ChatFrame1EditBox


FOR NEW IM-CHAT
------------------
Now, each chat window has its EditBox.
Accordingly, now need to create multiple eb (eb1, eb2 and others) for each window and the associated EditBox by analogy with the solution for Classics Chat and separately configure it.

Enjoy

v3.60

NEW Timestamps Customize module, customize the Blizzard timestamps, default is to return the style to the old BCM style, but you need to turn them on in Blizz config.
FIXED edit box is back at the top.
FIXED chat frame can be placed at the edge of the screen again.
FIXED copychat icon now only shows on-demand again, generally improved the module.
REMOVED Scroll module, 3.3.3 compatibility.

You can use shift+pagedown on chatframes to scroll to the bottom, this is default Blizzard functionality.

nice update. the code to resize the chat frame don't seem to be working. i can resize. but not as small as i used to. so to me it would seem as something is stopping it from getting any smaller.

adding:

_G[("ChatFrame%dEditBoxLeft"):format(i)]:Hide()
_G[("ChatFrame%dEditBoxRight"):format(i)]:Hide()
_G[("ChatFrame%dEditBoxMid"):format(i)]:Hide()


to the edit box helps preserve some of my sanity.

There is no code in this addon that deals with Chat Frame sizes.

I quite like it personally, but whatever suits you.
