Chat Hide
Version: 1.3.0
by: Scale [More]
This is a simple combat chat hide addon which i wrote for myself.

When you enter combat it will hide your chat windows,
Unless you hover your mouse over them or start typing text.

It currently has two option:

/chathide combat --Toggle combat only (So always hide, not just in combat)
/chathide toggle --Enable/Disable the addon


Short coming:
There is currently a problem with, icons in chat still showing.
It's not that bothersome, currently don't know how to fix it yet.
1.3.0:

Fixed an issue with frame hiding while hovering
(caused by an attempt to fix the icon hiding)

Yes, but then you can't hover them. Thus i would have to create extra frames with the exact same size or something.

Currently i am planning 2 things:
1. Report it to blizzard maybe get it fixed with 4.3
2. Hook AddMessage and attempt to rehide the window.

Free space and no distraction unless you want it and then you can hover over it.

For me, generally I have no use for chatting during raid combat. I am more focused on DBM bars and the raid in front of me. By getting rid of potentional real estate on my screen for something more useful like a DPS meter.
