idChat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r8
by: Industrial [More]

This addon modifies the chatframes.

Features

  • Timestamps on all messages, hh:mm format.
  • Text replacement; "[1. General]" becomes "1", "Raid" becomes "R".
  • The editbox is on top and doesnt have a background.
  • You no longer need to hold alt to move through the editbox.
  • Mousewheel scrolling. Hold shift to scroll to the top/bottom.
  • A slash command "/tt" to send a message to your target. Use "/tt <message>".
  • All chat buttons are hidden.
  • The chat channels say, emote, yell, party, guild, officer, raid, raid warning, battleground, whisper and all numbered channels are made sticky. The next time you open your editbox you will send a message to that channel by default.
  • Reformats normal messages, whispers and achievement notifications.

Does anyone know how to remove the space between channel name and player name? I'd like my chat messages to be in the following format:

2219:g:Warlockie: blahblah
(as opposed to 2219:g: Warlockie: blahblah

Actually, does someone also know how to actually remove the short forms altogether: I don't need the "g" for guild chat since the color already tells me in which channel someone told something. (2219:Warlockie: blahblah) If I just put ['Guild'] = '', (i.e. nothing between the apostrophes), it prints out |Hchannel:Guild. I'm not sure what all the "|h"s mean so I don't know how to modify this part.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi,

right click on the chat window tab and select "unlock". That is a standard blizzard UI option.

Open Addon.lua and go to the end of the file.
Change ChatTypeInfo.WHISPER.sticky = 1 to ChatTypeInfo.WHISPER.sticky = 0.

Remove sticky "channels"

Heya I was wondering if it's possible to remove the sticky whispers etc? Example I write in the guild-chat and someone whispers me and I whisper back, when I press enter after I've sent the message I end up in the whisper not in the Guild-chat?

Is it possible to remove the sticky?

Hey, I have an issue with SetFont and size of the text. It won't "override" the blizzard settings.

I have
Code:
ChatFontNormal:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF", 10) 
ChatFrame1:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF", 10)
ChatFrame2:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF", 10)
ChatFrame3:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF", 10)
but the text stays at size 12. Screenshot

You could try this :
Code:
text = text:gsub("(|Hplayer.*|h) whispers", "From %1:")
I haven't tested it, so it may not work.

Hey,

I want to have the whispers in that form:

"To Name:" for outgoing whispers.
"From Name:" for incoming whispers.

The 1st one is easy, but how can I change the Lua for the 2nd one.

(yes I know, I can scroll and it comes back)
Un-comment line 129 in the addon.lua file (i.e. remove the leading "--" before the "f").
