NeonChat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2
by: mikma [More]
NeonChat does a simple thing:

It colors the chat+editbox border+background to match the active chat you are about to write.

Now it's easier to notice if you are about to talk into a wrong chat!
Prettiness rules OK!
3.2 v50400:
* Siege of Orgrimmar version

3.2:
* GMChatFrame doesn't result an error now.

3.1:
* 4.3 update

3.05:
* Added a slashcommand to toggle chat coloring on/off.

3.04:
* Now uses the border of default Chat EditBox and simply applies a background to it.
* Colors background of the chatframe, too.

3.03:
* Took a try to fix the "Huge" editbox issue with whisper frames

3.02:
* Old style chat editbox is back.
* Now highlights correctly the focused chat frame.

3.01:
* Fixed error with IM mode and custom channels.
* Works with Classic mode.

3.0:
* Complete rewrite for 3.3.5
* Removed options since game colors input now and people still need the chat to be colored :)

2.02:
* ChatEditBox background alpha works again like it should

2.01:
* Spells/Items in ChatFrame1 can now be re-linked if NeonChat -frames are visible

2.0:
* Recode for WoW 3.1 (just cleaned up the code to be nicer :)

1.4:
* top updated to 3.0

1.3.1:
* toc updated to 2.4

1.3:
* Added option to color ChatFrame1 border
* Added slashcommand to toggle the chatborder on/off
* Renamed DB in order to reset old settings

1.2:
* Fixed an error that would pop up if you would have stickychannels on. (ie. You have sticky Trade on and as active channel, exit city and press enter = error)

1.1:
* Added slashcommand, /neonchat (You can now change the alpha of the backdrop and border)
* Added a minor color into chatinput background

1.0:
* Release

Blizz got the coloring thing, this cleans up that shit around the editbox
I did it like this, atm. Doesn't remove the editbox textures from whisper boxes.
Code:
for chatframe=1,10 do
	for i=6,8 do select(i,_G["ChatFrame"..chatframe.."EditBox"]:GetRegions()):Hide() end
end

Thank you mikma!

I had to edit the code a bit to stop the massive flood of bugs, that bugsack grabed from neonchat.

Line 40: --editbox:SetBackdropBorderColor(r,g,b,NeonChatDB.border)
Line 43: chatborder:SetBackdropColor(r/3,g/3,b/3,NeonChatDB.background)

Regards,
Highend

Remember, That's temporary fix! But atleast it should work well with ChatFrame1 (eventho the borders are visible at all time etc)

Well, it might take a while longer for NeonChat to work properly, I might have to recode it to work properly and still look cool. It was easy to make it work with ChatFrame1 but the rest of the frames are a problem.

The universal cheap hack to fix many of these 3.3.5 errors in various mods--changing
Code:
ChatFrameEditBox
to
Code:
ChatFrame1EditBox
--unfortunately doesn't work for NeonChat. Because the mod modifies much more than just the edit box; the current version references parts of the chat frame that no longer exist.
