Picking up the idea and materializing the addon, maintaining through years after quitting WoW

3.4.2.2
* fix error on chatevent when chatframe is not in config

3.4.2.1
* fix minimizing/maximizing ALL windows on mouseover

3.4.2
* config is now an own file, instead of being part of core.lua
this allows for copying/backing up your config between updates
* swept through code and used chatframes directly instead of frames tucked on the chatframes
* fixed a bug where config setting would be ignored for certain chat events (eg. only ChatFrame1 for "say" is set, but ChatFrame3 and ChatFrame4 would have been triggered)

3.4.1
* fixed "frozen" chat window on login

3.4
* crude legion update

3.3.2
* try to minimize chat on load
* Re-introduce ChatFrame:UpdateHeight() to manually update the height
* fixed a possible error with the chat-tabs

3.3.1
* fixed chat height of messages spanning multiple lines

3.3
*fixes for 3.3.5
*simpler event handling, including battle.net-events

3.2
*Prevent chat from resizing when moving it around

3.1
*TOC bump
*Added new PartyLeader event to the eventlist

3.0
* Another rewrite
* Chicchai now uses less CPU time
* You can define how many lines you'd like to see in minimized mode
* docked chatframes are now handled properly
* fixed chat frame flickering happening sometimes on mouseover
* you can define how long you should hover the frame until it maximizes
* chatframes can stay maximized for a defined time before minimizing on mouseleave
* you can configure on which custom channels the chatframe maximizes

2.0
*Core rewritten
*You are now able to manage the chatframes you want to be affected (like chatframe 5, 6, 8, and so on)
*TOC bump

1.1
*A few improvements
*Now Updates when the Chat Window is too small or big

1.0.1

I'm kinda struggling with this to be honest, but for now it's at least not throwing errors around anymore.
Ah okay, yeah I very briefly attempted to add the other chat frame but it didn't work.

Thanks for the quick reply and I hope you can achieve the things you have in mind for this addon, really liking the idea, reminds me a lot of the chat in Overwatch.

Sadly, Chicchai is useless to me personally as I do use the ElvUI chat, but I will keep my fingers crossed and hope that one day Chicchai will support ElvUI, until then I wish you the best of luck with Chicchai!
Thank you

Good news!
I just fixed a bug present in the current version, which brings me closer to my goal.
I'll upload it in a few minutes.
After i cracked how to read the height of wrapped lines (i'm on it..) i will look into that matter for sure. You may try your luck with that version in the meantime, if you wish to do so.

EDIT: Just testet it and all seems fine to me

https://youtu.be/MIf6DZYj7Mw this is how it looks when I have ElvUI and Chicchai running at the same time.

Oh and btw, I think I've found a bug in Chicchai related to whisper tabs.
Whenever someone whispers and I click their tab to see what they said, I am no longer able to swap tabs.
Whisper tabs is a built-in feature by default, and not added by any addons or such, so I'm assuming this is a bug.

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.
