ChatBar - Button Bar for opening chat messages of each type.

A little acsii art for demonstration: [oooooooo]
o - Buttons, colored the color of a chat type, left click to open editbox of that type, right click for type specific options. Initial letter of the type on or above the button
[ ] - Ends of the bar, left click to drag, right click for options

Button / ChatType Options:
Block (channel) - Toggles filtering of chat channels related to selected button without leaving channel.
Leave (Channel)
Print Channel User List - List prints to the default chat frame. Same as "/list #". (At this time, Blizzard does not support the listing of players from other realms in chat channels. When Blizzard allows this, this addon will support it.)
Hide This Button - Hide the button for that chat type or channel by name.
Reply (Whisper) - Open whisper to the last person that whispered you.
Retell (Whisper) - Open whisper to the last person you whispered.
Set Binding By Name (Channel) - Select one of the 10 channel bindings to use for this channel (saved by name instead of by index).
Sticky - http://www.wowwiki.com/Chat#Advanced_Chat_Terminology.2FDetails Note: Channels are all or none, other types can be stickied individually.

ChatBar Options:
Large Buttons - Toggles larger size buttons.
Vertical Orienation - Toggles vertical/horrizontal bar via sliding.
Reverse Button Orienation - Toggles button order reversal via sliding
Text On Buttons - Toggles chattype abrev on/next to the buttons
Show Button Text - Toggles chattype abrev visibility
Use Channel ID On Buttons - Toggles using the channel index or the first letter of the channel name
Button Message Flashing - Toggles button flashing when you receive a message of that type
Show Bar Border - Toggles show/hide the bar border/background. Note: You can still click on the ends of the bar when it's hidden
Hide Addon Channels - Hide Sky, CTRA and CTA channel buttons
Hidden Buttons - Submenu for showing manually hidden buttons
Reset Position - Attaches the ChatBarFrame to above the ChatFrame1 tab
Reorder Channels - General, Trade, LocalDefense, LookingForGroup, WorldDefense, GuildRecruitment, others...

Bindings
There are now bindings available for the chat types and channels by index. Individual channels can also be set to bind by name, overriding a indexed binding of your choice.

Localizations:
English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Simplified and Traditional Chinese
(I only speak English. All other translations have been user submitted. So if you have updates or new translations let me know.)

User Submitted Skins
The skinning system is a bit unique because it has more layers than a normal button with full up/down specularity and shadow as well as flash/hover alpha and normal shaping graphic that are all translucent to allow for the buttons to correspond to the chat type's selected color for each button.

To add a new custom Skin drop its folder into the ChatBar folder, modify the ChatBar_AltArtDirs table in ChatBar.lua and append the new folder name, then add a CHATBAR_SKIN# variable to the end of the localization file for it's readable name. Then select it from the dropdown in game.

Comes with the following skins: Solid, Glass and Squares

Reset
If you lose the bar you can reset it with this script: /run ChatBar_Reset()

Can your majorsty tell me modify which file to make it localized??
There's no Chinese localization yet. if you want to make one, copy one of the other localization files, translate it, and email it to me @ karlkfi@yahoo.com

At first I got a swatter "nil value" error, but now I'm not getting any errors - just no colors. Any ideas?
Not a clue. only thing i could suggest is deleting your CharBar saved variables files and deleting you chat-cache.txt file (will reset chat settings), both from your WTF folder. Other than that i can't do much without an error msg.

Button Colors

Anduin,

Many thanks for the mods - including orgainzing Cosmos. It was my introduction to mods years ago, and I've been using at least some of the components ever since.

Love this mod by the way.
Search for 'Sea' on WowInterface and you should find it. It's under the Library category.

Awesome to see this out for WoTLK!!!

I really hope Sea isn't needed, I don't need Sea to use it in WoW.

Sea

Is Sea really a RequiredDep? I'm still using 2.2 from 2006 december, and it is quite fine in Wrath too, although it can't list the people on a channel... but everything else is working fine.

i'm looking alot for some addon and i just can;t find one...
i thougth this is the one but it isn't
i would like a bar like this one, but with a different functionality
the buttons ofr whisper/say/party say/ guild say are ok, but once i press one, when i press <enter> to enter new message to the last chanel i;ve been writing text, the chanel remains unchanged.
let's say:
i press /s and say "text"
i press button g to whisper in guild chanel
when i press enter to add some more text to the guild chanel, the fact that i used button g instead of /g leaves the chanel to /s, wich is not good.
the functionality that i'm looking for is the posibility to filter the chat so that i won;t see anything on general when i press the /1 button
and so on, one click togle on /off the filter of the chanels , or 1 button to filter all /1/2/3/4/5/6 chanels at the same time.
what i would like from it is to fix the bug that when i leave a chanel there is no way to get back that button on the chatbar

also, a nice thing would be to be able to chose wich buttons to show and wich not, and more thing. i would love to have a button to change from geneal chanel to combat chanel, and remove the one that normal chat has in this moment. (i mean the tabs that apear when i crossover with mouse)

Unless I'm mistaken, is there no way to lock the bar in place? I've clicked and checked/unchecked about everything I could find...
