Version: 3.4.1
by: Lolzen, xConStruct

About

Chicchai is a little Addon that will Minimize the Chat after a few seconds.
Features
  • Minimize the Chat after X seconds
  • Maximize Chat on mouseover
  • Animations (+how long should the Animation take)
  • Configurable on wich events (Guild, say, yell,...) the chat should maximize
  • Possibility to disable maximizing in combat
  • CombatLog will be maximized when selected (optional, default)

Preview
Click for Previewvideo - Chicchai in action

Configuration
The configuration is on the very top of the core.lua along with help text.

You can call some functions if you want to handle maximizing/minimizing by yourself:
  • /script ChatFrame1:Maximize() - Maximize this chat frame
  • /script ChatFrame1:Minimize() - Minimize this chat frame
  • /script ChatFrame1:SetFrozen(true/false) - block maximizing/minimizing

legion update

i've uploaded a crude update. The basics work, however wrapped long lines aren't considered as "one" line anymore. i have yet to discover a new way to make it behave like before.

I may rewrite Chicchai in the future from ground up, but at the moment i wanted to provide you with something working. Sorry for the long delay, i had stopped playing WoW at the end of MoP, and enjoyed playing legion with friends & family, but didn't know how long i'd stick around.

Recently found this sexy thing and it still works as of patch 5.2.

Would it be possible to make the chatframe expand downwards instead of up ?

I'm trying to set this up so it will maximize the chat frame that is getting updated .

I got the general -combat-group chat frames on the left screen and Guild chat on the right screen.
Whenever left chat is getting updated it will maximize works great , however when guildchat getting updated the left chat will maximize, any way i can set this up so it will maximize by itself as standalone without left chat mazimized ?

thanks for great addon.

I do believe that I've fixed it. Or at least the errors that it was throwing at me with nothing but Tukui and Skada installed. I'll go addon-less a little later on today and play with it, to see if I can errors. If I don't then I'll push it to my girlfriend and perhaps guild to see if they get errors ... and if they don't, then I'll see about uploading it. [Will talk to Cairenn/Shirik/*insert Admin here* about what I would need to do in order to upload essentially someone else's addon]

Just a heads up - it's being worked on.

Need help

Hey, I know nothing about scripting and need some help. I would like someone here to help me permanently minimize my chat window. It stays small (1 bar) until someone in my raid or party group talks and then it turns full size for about 3seconds. This is very distracting and Id just like it to stay small until I say otherwise.

What do?
