Re: Editbox

Class colors are enabled via chat options. (Right click chat tab)

The editbox position is hardcoded. To change it edit this line in rChat/core/core.lua: http://code.google.com/p/rothui/sour...re/core.lua#92

Try sth like:
Lua Code:
  1. eb:SetPoint("TOP",self,"BOTTOM",0,-22)
Play around with -22 until you are happy.

To test it:
1) Make a change
2) Save the file
3) Do a /reload in the game

I like the minimal addon, however, there is something Id like to change and was wondering if you could tell me where to change it.

If your say in trade chat, it lists it like so:

2 [Name] blah blah

Id like it to be

[2. Trade][Name] blah blah

Anyway of changing that?

Open channelreplacement.lua and remove
Lua Code:
  1. local gsub = _G.string.gsub
  2.      
  3.   for i = 1, NUM_CHAT_WINDOWS do
  4.     if ( i ~= 2 ) then
  5.       local f = _G["ChatFrame"..i]
  6.       local am = f.AddMessage
  7.       f.AddMessage = function(frame, text, ...)
  8.         return am(frame, text:gsub('|h%[(%d+)%. .-%]|h', '|h%1|h'), ...)
  9.       end
  10.     end
  11.   end

This is going to be a really stupid question, but how do I configure it? I have it installed, but have no clue how to move the chat around(Which is the reason i downloaded) or how to configure at all

Nope, not without writing an OnEnter/OnLeave handler.

Re: Messages

@vexohmistdo
You can still do that. Use ALT+Arrow Up.

The problem is described here:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9882709508

Patch 5.4 crashed the editbox:SetAltArrowKeyMode(false) function call that I'm using. For the time being use ALT+Up Arrow.

Hello again Zork,

Was just wondering, how would i go about making a tab flash when i receive a message. I have a dedicated whisper tab, i would like to have the tab flash so i know that i received a whisper.

This is the perfect chat box addon.

Only question, nothing too important, is if the bold text outline can be removed.

Thanks for all of your addon work!

It could be by manual editing of the code.
I am perhaps planning on setting a different font in a similar way.
Would be nice to have some of those choices accessible from the config, but I imagine it is easy to then go too far once you start adding them.
