Added a on/off feature for the level bit, should not be hard to configure.

I think I fixed the problem JohnDoe03, tell me the results.

*Edit*

Added 1.1b and it fixes the language issues, John.

works like a charm now - thanks

i have two requests too:
- could you color the class as well? looks nicer if its all in the same color
- is it possible to change the order, eg. lvl, class, name oder name, class, lvl or whatever?

thanks for the work you put into this addon !

I added the ability to make custom syntaxes, i.e. decide for yourself how the friends are displayed. Check the changelog for 1.2 for information, also the in-game slash command should suffice getting you started.

Performance wise the RAM can go up to 2MB just for the addon if you scroll the friend list like crazy for a while, but garbage collection comes along and always reduces it down to below 40KB so it's not bad at all, it's not like it's constant growing to 2MB. Normal usage makes it grow to about 500KB and again it's not much considering modern machines.

If people prefer the "slim" version they can use 1.1b but the memory "issue" is still there only that it grows to around 500KB at worst, instead of 2MB.

Would be cool if not just the f-list is coloured, but also the guildlist, wholist, battleground-statistic etc

Yes, I have expanded the tokens to incorporate RealID names. $B is the tag, and added T for coloring blue, just like the RealID color. $BT produces a blue name for RealID friends, it's hidden for non-RealID friends. Also, check changelog for an example.

The default syntax is more Blizzard like, but shows character info on RealID friends, I shall add an option in some future update to toggle on/off for RealID friends for customization purposes.

That is hard because the names of realid friends are not plain text, it's rendered on top of a weird looking string, so you can't tell one from apart from the other, if they both got the same name length, so it kind of makes it impossible to truly track realid friends.

There's an old addon from the start of Cata that used to be able to do it. It renamed people when logging in and out, as well as when they were speaking in chat, and in the chat editbox when you were typing a message.

It's dead now and a lot of people miss it. Think there's any chance implementing features from it in your addon or maintaining/create something similar?
But thanks again

I don't think it's dead, the author just need a little time to update it. Sadly "Friend List Colors" is kind of far away from "Friend List Renaming", hehe. BUT I am curious how these addons work together, if they can or if one overrides the other, hmm.
