Just a feature request: keybinds

Prat has a nifty feature I use frequently where if I push ctrl+1 (my preference) I will speak in Say. ctrl+2 = party, etc. Interested in adding that?

One last feature req - Copy contents of chatwindow.

Personally I DL'd BasicChatMod and copy/paste'd the contents of chatcopy.lua into my own modded version of bChat.lua and that worked perfectly.

I don't know if you wanna be just as simple n blatant ripoff'ish, but just letting you know how easy it is

This makes bChat have a memory stamp of 15'ish k mem, but still nothing compared to eg. Prat.

Do you plan on adding shortened custom channels? Also, shortening standard channels like ''2. Trade'' to just ''2'' would be great.

Re: bug?

I will check that bug sometime today and get it straightened out.

For Alt-Click Invites; I will definitely be looking into getting this feature included, though I'm entirely sure how to do so.

For Keybinds; Not something I so interested in, though I may make a separate (very) small package that can be added in.

For Copy Chat; I'll have to consider this, it may also be a separate package, but we'll see.

For Shortened Channel Names; Will be included in the next update.

Will get the next update I can out ASAP, been taking a break from WoW and plan to take another one for awhile soon here. I hope that its a complete addon before then.

Castro - this is now a part of the default Blizz interface and thus not something you need an addon to do for you

Right-click General chattab - choose Settings and put checkmarks in "Show Classcolor"..

When done - dance

Hey, my dear author, you have forgot to include something named Changelog.
That could be kinda help when I am considering whether to update, COZ the old edition is still "cool".

Basically I fixed a bug, and added shortened channel names globaly. I would update since any config takes 30 seconds, this one is still cool :P

Can you add an option to make the editbox smaller (or show where you edit that option in lua)? This addon is great, but the size of the editbox in comparison to the font size (I currently have it to 12) is ghastly.

Also, how do you increase the number of lines you can scroll with your mousewheel?

I removed the edit box. Just set alpha to 0.

I'll patch in something to make the editbox font the same as the defined font. I my add a config to change the scroll speed as well.
