nUI : Info Panel [Chat]  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.2.17688
by: Xrystal [More]


This InfoPanel Plugin allows the user to have a second customisable chat frame on the right hand side. This one is using panel 22.

The addon initially searches the 10 available chat frames and finds one that is not being used and uses it until you decide to remove the addon in which case it becomes a regular chat frame window with the same options as another tab on the left.

Test Environment
nUI+ 5.07.42 and WoW 5.4.2

Known Problems
Please note you are limited to 8 chat frames alongside the General and Combat Log chat frames. Before this addon will work you will need to make at least 1 of those frames available to use.

Slash Commands
They will disable the plugin ready for removal of the addon. You can re-enable it again if you change your mind before logging out.

/nuic enable - to enable it
/nuic disable - to disable it

Foreign Language Versions
enUS - US English
enGB - UK English

If you wish to add your localization please post a copy of your translation with the localization code you use and I will endeavor to include it at the earliest convenience.

wow just realised I never uploaded the 1.04.00 updated version of this addon. It seems to be working fine for me which is why I assumed I had uploaded it already but I guess I forgot.

I can't upload it till early next week though so I'll work on refining the code and do some more tests before uploading..

12x nUI_InfoPanel_Chat-1.03.00\nUI_InfoPanel_Chat.lua:299: attempt to compare number with nil

Just to let you guys know I just received this error myself while scrolling with the mouse scroll. I can see the code that is causing the problem so when I get time I will rectify the oversight and make sure there are no more surprises in all my chat addons.

There have been several posts over the nUI forums but yes, I know the problem exists.

The problem is due to how my addons utilise the chat frames and how blizzard now allows you to use them. With the existing code there is no compatibility alongside the known naming issues which was a simple fix but not enough to fix the plugin itself.

I am currently at hour 24 of working on the fix on the easier plugin of nUI_InfoPanel_Whispers and it seems to be working so far.

This plugin (nUI_InfoPanel_Chat) though is a bit more complicated to incorporate the fix into so may need a lot more time to work out now that I got this far.

In the newly working code it creates a window on the fly and then kills it off. Which is great for the nUI_InfoPanel_GuildChat and nUI_InfoPanel_Whispers plugins but this particular one (nUI_InfoPanel_Chat)requires a more permanent window so I need to find a way to permanently use the same window each time regardless of how many extra windows people create.

Watch the forums and this spot and once I have a working fix I will post one up. For the time being though I suggest you disable any infopanel plugins that don't seem to work until updated ones are available.

3.3.5 Patch Chat Frame changes

3.3.5 Chat Frame Changes
  • Players can now right-click on any chat type (Whisper, Trade, General, Party, Raid, etc.) and choose to move conversation types into separate windows. This will move that chat type to a separate tab in the Chat frame which can be undocked and moved anywhere on the screen.
    • Using the Move to Whisper Window option on a Whisper will place the conversation with that player in a separate tab.
    • Any time a conversation with another player is put into its own tab, the tab will glow when a new message is received.
  • Hovering over the Chat Frame and using the mouse wheel will allow players to scroll through chat text.
  • Players can select Classic Mode under Interface Options to keep the Chat Frame functionality closer to what it was prior to patch 3.3.5.
  • The Simple Chat User Interface option has been removed.

As you can see they have done alot of changes to how the chat system works. And this is the view for the users. Believe me there are a lot of behind the scene changes as well. While it has only partially broken my chat plugins it has made them react strangely. I was in the process of making more extensive changes to the addons when the patch hit so once I can get on a server to test and apply them I will introduce a fix to at least stop crashing of the nUI system due to the extra frames they have created.

In the mean time I would suggest doing without these addons for a while and see how the new chat system works to how you want. At the first opportunity I will try to incorporate the changes into the addons so they at least look presentable rofl. While I work on a new and improved chat system if Scott doesn't for nUI in general.

If the latter becomes possible I will use this addon to signify the *new* chat frame addon. I still need to investigate the new features before I can envision anything else beyond what we already have in place.
