Friend List Colors
Version: 1.5.6.2
by: Vladinator [More]
Allows you to customize the friend list, format, colors and more! For example you can make it so all friends appear like "Username L80 Priest" where the name is colored by the class.

Use /flc or /friendlistcolors for slash command help.
1.5.6.2:
- Attempt to make the Alias module work together with EasyCopy.

1.5.6.1:
- Added slash command information when Alias module is enabled, this makes it a bit easier to get started.

1.5.6:
- Fixed Allias module, custom names should appear properly in the friend list, in whisper edit box, chat tabs and chat frame, along with toast messages. Do report if you find any issues.

1.5.5:
- Added an extra module for aliases. To set an alias set a note that contains "^Name$" (without quotes) and what ever is between ^ and $ will be the alias for that person. This currently works for RealID but will be expanded to work for regular WoW friends, soon(tm). This is still an experimental bonus feature, report errors in detail and I shall be forever in your debt.

1.5.4:
- Fixed issue with multiple games running on one RealID friend, this caused issues deciding the correct "toon" to display if using class, level, e.g. tags. This issue should no longer occur.

1.5.3:
- Added a proper tag for RealID names (or BattleTags), this way you can define where these appear in the syntax. Also these behave a bit specially, for instance "$BT, $N" will show "Mathew Jr, Charname" but when it's a regular character the first part and the comma are removed, so it would just show the character name. $B is the BattleTag, append C, D or T for coloring. T is the blue color used by default for RealID friends.
- Fixed an rare issue with nil level error on RealID friends, when they login/logout.

1.5.2:
- Fixed setting saving issue introduced with MoP update earlier.
- Added syntax for offline friends, you can customize how the format is, and add things like notes. Not all data is available since offline friends do not have any toons, zone, level, and such, especially RealID friends. Keep this in mind.

1.5.1:
- RealID friends that play WoW are now treated like characters in the list, only with the RealID name prefixed. In short, same syntax only with the RealID real name and blue color in front to indicate that this is indeed a RealID friend.
- Offline RealID friends have their note shown.
- Offline WoW friends have their note shown.

1.5:
- Works with Cata and MoP.
- Tweaked on performance, unnoticeable changes, but improvements never the less.

1.4:
- Fixed issue where scrolling could have side effects (at least since MOP), this should no longer be the case.
- Fixed a problem with restore command when you had no backups, making it show an error.

1.3:
- Updated for MoP, mostly TOC bump update.

1.2:
- Added slash commands, /flc and /friendslistcolors. You can set how the names are to be displayed, backup, restore and reset the addon. There are also some explanations how you can write your own syntaxes under "vars" menu. Type /flc for help when you login.

1.1b:
- Removed unnecessary code and optimized it, no more problems with other locales as well.

1.1:
- Improved matching of friends, this should fix the problem that other localizations experience with the old version of the addon.
- Added on/off for the shortening of "Level" into "L", edit the top of the LUA file and change the value of "USE_SHORT_LEVEL".

1.0:
- Initial release.

I recommend you swap over to Prat, it has a ton of modules you can turn on/off so you don't have to worry about performance, hehe.

I sadly don't think it's much use to make EasyCopy with together with Alias.
Ok then I'll have to do that sadly. I didn't like how you copied in Prat but it'll have to do.

Maybe you need to pick up a new addons? /joke

I'll see if I can get in contact with the EasyCopy author. It works perfectly now on its own but yea as you said it's no point if it's going to break in a year and never be fixed. The copying is so superior to Prat and the way it doesn't interfere with addons like Chaticons, Skinner. Is why I'm trying not to move to another "mainstream" addon.

I myself use Prat and have not experienced any issues. It's messy fighting over AddMessage that's true, but no other way to do this, sadly. So there will always be some addons not working, and some that work. Just gotta report if someone wants me to make this compatible with their chat addons.
No sucess that made Easycopy throw out a bunch of .lua errors and when I tried to type something in chat it literally blew my game up. :P

Is it an Eascopy issue or a Friend List Color issue. Because I'm wondering if I should be looking for a new chat addon. Or if you will be fixing it when you have the time?

The Alias module has compatability issues with an addon called EasyCopy (best copying addon out there)

http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/easy-copy

It's basically a 50/50 chance on log in to remove the clickable timestamps that EasyCopy adds to click to copy.

No lua errors though and Friend list color addons seems to be working fine even though it broke EasyCopy.

That is correct, I uploaded 1.5.6.1 that fixed this and added the information in the slash command when the module has loaded, hehe. I was hoping no one would notice this mistake, kind of embarrassed.

It has it's own module, when enabled on the login screen addon list, you have this syntax, you put in the note of the person "^Name$" it can be anywhere, but the addon looks for the ^ and $ and uses what ever is in between as the alias for that person.

I'll add this information to the slash commands, so far only added it in the changelog, how silly of me.
I think you ****ed up when you uploaded 1.5.6 look at the archived version of 1.5.6 it's missing the module all togheter.

RealID messages work, regular friend names are not yet properly swapped out in the chat when they login or out, but will be soon enough.

Hmm.. The alias feature seems to be working in the friends list, in the chat edit box but not in the chat itself for some reason.
