Is there any way to enable the skinning features for Real ID conversations?

The URL copy feature is throwing an error.

Message: Interface\AddOns\bChat\bChat.lua:245: attempt to perform arithmetic on global 'scale' (a nil value)
Time: 08/22/10 14:02:38
Count: 1
Stack: Interface\AddOns\bChat\bChat.lua:245: in function `ChatFrame_OnHyperlinkShow'
[string "*:OnHyperlinkClick"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnHyperlinkClick"]:1>

*edit

After replacing the "scale-30" with "-30" the error went away.

Neither of these questions make sense. As they are both available and true by default in the addon

editbox:SetBackdropColor(0,0,0,.8)

Good idea with the editbox, updated now with a fix for the tab stuff and smaller editbox. Enjoy!

Edit: As well as the reversed whisper stuff

That worked for me too, thanks for the tip It is odd that it should happen though, maybe I'll try putting it on a fresh install and see what happens and try to figure out what's going on.

Also, I noticed that "T" and "F" for whispers were backwards from what I'm used to. That is, when I whisper someone, it shows "F [Name]" and when someone whispers me, it shows "T [Name]." I looked at the code and compared it to PhanxChat and indeed the strings are defined the other way around.

In regards to my question about resizing the editbox, I decided to try defining the topleft and topright corners of the editbox in addition to the two bottom points already defined in the code, and it seems to work ok.

1) In your latest (8/3 11AMish) update, the chat tab texture hiding is somehow broken, the Blizzard texture pops up on mouseover. I looked at the LUA and couldn't see any changes. I'm not using any other chat mods so I don't think anything else is interfering but you never know. Also, the Bliizzard texture hiding isn't working on chat frames other than the main chat frame. Rolling back to the 3AMish version makes everything work again.

Thanks for the updates Just a couple things:

1) In your latest (8/3 11AMish) update, the chat tab texture hiding is somehow broken, the Blizzard texture pops up on mouseover. I looked at the LUA and couldn't see any changes. I'm not using any other chat mods so I don't think anything else is interfering but you never know. Also, the Bliizzard texture hiding isn't working on chat frames other than the main chat frame. Rolling back to the 3AMish version makes everything work again.

2) Is there any way to make the edit box appear smaller, as in less padding around the text? The only thing I could see having to do with the edit box is where you defined the background and outline textures, the color and alpha, and the positioning.

*Edit* Noticed you updated...

Nice addon

Was wondering how one would go about removing the brackets around player names when they type / speak in a channel. (Providing this is not beyond the addons limits )
