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.

Nice. I like it. Adding this to my list of mods to toss into my next interface!

Only things I'd change (and on my personal version) is to disable sticky and re-enable text fade. Oh, and change the timestamp color, white is entirely too harsh!

I love the white!! don't change it

I need to figure out how to just have time stamps on chat 1 only and to justify the combat log to the left.


My favorite thing about Industrial's addons are they are very easy to go into and tweek to further customize them!!

Thanks Id!

in local function AddMessage()

text = '|cffffffff' .. date('%H%M') .. '|r ' .. text

that line adds the timestamp, the |cffffffff and |r make it white. The last 6 f's are the hexadecimal color code so you can change that to your liking.

If you only want it on the first chat frame you can do something like

if frame==ChatFrame1 then
text = '|cffffffff' .. date('%H%M') .. '|r ' .. text
end

cheers

copy?

Nice setup.

The only thing missing that I can think of is copy and paste of chat lines.

Get back to googlecode!
It's a lot easier to do some customization on your addons and still keep up with your changes via svn diff.
I hate it to update from wowinterface and search for your changes.

At least some statement about why you moved would be nice.

Hi!

I was wondering how the easiest way is to change the colour of the chat text in Officer to another colour so its easier to see rather than the slightly darker shade of green as normal is the way for it to be displayed ?

Feature Requests:

1. URL-Copy
2. Player Name options like Prat has.
3. Allow to change the timestamp format and add a seperator.
4. make it possible to wrap channel names into parenthesis or brackets.

Right click on your chat tab go under channels, the officer and click to change the colour.(It's built into wow.

3. Allow to change the timestamp format and add a seperator.
Change line 68

4. make it possible to wrap channel names into parenthesis or brackets.
change line 55 to 67.

change line 55 to 67.

How do you mean, like make line 55 to look like line 67 or how ?

As you can see im no Lua expert so i need some guidance here pls

Thx for you help

Hmm my editbox is not transpant, still have the background, all are "out of the box" had Prat before and cleaned all my saved variables from it too.

i would like to get my editbox moved up some too and i guess i have to change the lines 134 and 135 to do that ? Edit, fixed

And while im on it i might ask for a thing i liked with Prat and that was that i could bind the channel to a key and just open that channel with a keystroke but this seems not to be built in in idchat, is there a way to do that anyhow or can i look for it in Prat.lua and maybe copy/paste it to idchat so i can have it or do i just have to learn to use my / command ?
Edit, fixed that using the Mod "ChatKeys"

Im also trying out RS_ClassColors to see if i get the names in colour.
