Chicchai  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.3.2
by: Lolzen, xConStruct
Explanation
Chicchai is a little Addon that will Minimize the Chat after a few seconds.

What can Chicchai do?
  • 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)
  • Lightweight
  • and more...


Other
Click for Previewvideo - lousy quality, but you'll get the idea.

Configuration
The configuration will be done through lua only. The .lua contains comments for inexperienced users.

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

Thanks to
Cargor (EU-Nozdormu)
I asked him if he would help me a bit, because im so a lazy bastard. So he started coding and POOF - Chicchai was like in my dreams, even better :3

Hope ya enjoy,
Lolzen

Lightweight replacement for Minichat, interesting, does it also hide tha tabs while minimized ? cuz i'm using a chat KgPanel background so having the tabs visible would look ugly (i also have Fane affecting tabs) any possibility ?
