Fane  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6
by: haste [More]
Fane is a small add-on to make the chat tabs look slightly more appealing. The tabs will always be shown on ChatFrame1 (that's the one where you can have more than one tab).

There are zero configurations for this add-on.
Changes from 1.5
- The tabs will no longer fade, while the combat log quick button list still will.
- Separate chat frames now have their tabs handled correctly.

Changes from 1.4
- Make a global local. (If you fetched 1.4, then you really shouldn't bother fetching this one as well).

Changes from 1.3
- Updated to work on 3.3.5.

Changes from 1.2
- Should no longer error when trying to close chat frames.

Changes from 1.1
- Updated to work on 3.0.

Changes from 1.0
- Set TOC version to 2.4.

I'd really appreciate any help the author or other users could offer.
Hey did you work out how to do this? I'd love to be able to do this

Thanks in advance.

Seems that it doesn't work on other windows. I have two chat windows set up, and Fane only works on the 'main' one with all my tabs. Then my other window still has the normal tab.

I'm going to peel through the lua and see if I can fix this myself, but if someone has an idea/knows how to fix it, I'd appreciate a response! Thanks! :-)
Solved with 1.6.

1.4 should work fine with 3.3.5. The PTR seems to have been taken offline for this patch round, so I ended up investing in a US account. This also means that I've only done some minor testing as I have other mods needing 3.3.5 love and the fact that I only have a level 1 char on some random server .

I did take some quick solutions in making Fane work on 3.3.5 as well. It currently won't prevent the text from fading with the chat frames. Let me know if I should override this behavior.

I notice you're hooking FCF_StartAlertFlash in 1.4 instead of the now defunct OnShow event for a tab's highlight region, as well as other functions that I assume to be part of the new Blizzard chat UI - is there any documentation on them anywhere? I can't find it for the life of me.
FrameXML/FloatingChatFrame.lua:1322:FCF_StartAlertFlash
FrameXML/FloatingChatFrame.lua:1198:FCFTab_UpdateColors

The code is really all the docs there are.

It just piggyback rides on the Blizzard tab system, so not really. It was never a design goal with the old version either however.
