Font size

If it isnt much trouble a font size option would be great atleast for me Original sizes are either to small(12) or to big(14). 13 would be great

I'm loving the new update ^.^

Here we go:
1) With Prat (or the default chat), I could set the background window opacity to lowest and never have the chat box fade in when my mouse moves over it. With bChat, moving my mouse over the chat box will show the darkish box. Any way to remove that?

2) Is there was a way to put the editbox at the bottom of the chat window instead of the top?

3) Where in your code does it determine the length of the editbox? My chat window is a bit resized, so I was wondering if I could make mine span the length of my chat window.

Thanks!

Could you shorten custom channels aswell? Like ''6. randomchannelname'' becomes just ''6.''. Saves loads of space for me.

Wtb Timestamp On/Off included in the code, pls

I changed/added around the hook function (line 205)
Code:
local function hook(self, text, ...)
	local tstr = (date("%X").." ")
	if timestamp then
		self:f(tstr..text:gsub(pattern, f), ...)
	else
		self:f(text:gsub(pattern, f), ...)
	end
end
and added this to the top (line 7)
Code:
local timestamp = true
ofc the %X can be changed to something else depending if you want AM/PM or 24h.. and if you want seconds or not. I want 24h+sec so I chose to hardcode %X. you can choose something else if you want.

Love the addon

^^ Is there a way to get a shadowy effect on the text, rather than the full outline?
Update coming soon with a config segment, including changing your shadow options.

There is already a segment in this code to prevent the new message tab flashing. Is it still happening for you? I think I might know the issue, i'll add a segment to the code to fix the bug. Thanks for the heads up.

One suggestion though, can there be a way to prevent the chat tabs from flashing when you get a new message?

Just add something like this to the lua file
Code:
for i = 1, NUM_CHAT_WINDOWS do
	_G["ChatFrame"..i.."TabFlash"]:GetRegions():SetTexture(nil)
	_G["ChatFrame"..i.."Tab"]:GetHighlightTexture():SetTexture(nil)
end
(if there is a similar loop in the file already just add the 2 _G lines into the loop)

Should work.
