xanChat  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v4.0
by: Xruptor [More]

This is my personal modifications to the default blizzard chat frames. I really didn't want something as heavy as Prat installed to do a few things I needed. So I hand coded my own chat modifications.

I'm probably not going to make any major updates. However, if you have suggestions I may take it into consideration.


What the mod gives you:

  • Mousewheel control for scrolling
  • Move the chat frame to the edges of the screen.
  • Hold CTRL while using the mousewheel to scroll ridiculously fast.
  • Hold ALT while using the mousewheel to scroll to the top or bottom of the chat window.
  • Automatically enables class colors on all chat windows and channels.
  • Option to hide/show the social chat buttons.
  • Option to hide/show the chat scroll buttons.
  • Option to enable/disable channel short names.
  • Option to move the edit box to the top or bottom.
  • Option to show or hide the chat tabs. (Will still show when you mouse over the chat frame.)
  • Enables stick channels for the following channels
    1. Say
    2. Party
    3. Raid
    4. Guild
    5. Officer
    6. Whisper
    7. Channel
  • Removes the ALT key press requirement to move around in the edit box. You can now move just using the arrow keys.
  • Removes the annoying Blizzard default alpha borders around the edit box when it's not being used. The borders will still show though when you use it and hide again when you are done.
  • Removes the guild loot gold messages and replaces them with the original ones.
  • Right-Click player names in chat window to be able to copy their names. (Great for names with special characters)
  • Right-Click player names in chat window to be able to Guild Invite.
  • Right-Click player names in chat window to be able to do a Who lookup.
  • Has built in URL support. Clickable URL links in the chat window.


Note: Timestamps were not included because Blizzard already implemented this feature into the client.
Options -> Interface -> Social -> Chat Timestamps



Slash Commands:
  • /xanchat social -- toggles the chat social buttons (ON/OFF)
  • /xanchat scroll -- toggles the chat scroll buttons (ON/OFF)
  • /xanchat shortnames -- toggles channel short names (ON/OFF)
  • /xanchat editbox -- toggles the edit box to show (TOP/BOTTOM)
  • /xanchat tabs -- toggles the chat tabs (ON/OFF)



You can view Alpha Builds at my Github tracker.

-Added a small fix for when Battle.net goes down.

-Because of the above fix, the issue with the 'ChatFrame1' is not movable has been fixed.

v3.6
-Fixed a stupid taint issue with removing glyphs. Why does blizzard keep adding taint calls to functions, in every expansion.

v2.3
-You can now move the chat window to the edges of the screen

Version 2.2:
-Added a slash command to move the editbox to the top or bottom.
-Added a slash command to hide the chat tabs. (They will still show when you mouse over the chat.)
-Fixed an issue where the editbox would prevent you from clicking the chat tabs when it was displayed at the top.

Version 2.1:

-Changed the way in which the primary code loads up.
-Added slash commands
-Added an option to hide scroll bars
-Added an option to hide social buttons
-Added a confirmation box when changes are done as a ReloadUI is required.

Version 1.7:

-Had to remove maxlines as it was causing issues.
-Fixed an issue where sometimes the addon would conflict with other chat addons and prevent certain text from appear. Such as Boss Yells and NPC Say speech.

Version 1.5:
-Added a guild invite function to the chat playername right click menu
-Added a who function to the chat playername right click menu

Version 1.4:
-Fixed the class coloring for all the global channels.
-Added a Copy Name option to the right-click menu that appears when you right-click a player name in the chatframe. This will be useful for those times a player name may contain special characters in the name not native to your keyboard.

Version 1.2:
-Apparently global channels were not being affected. This has been fixed in version 1.2


Version 1.1:
-A slight fix for the class colors sometimes not working.

It happens not when I created new tab myself, but only when new tabs are created automatically from new whispers.

Edit:

It seems like the problem is related to new whisper windows clamped to the screen as you can see on this scr
(default settings, cleared WTF and Cache, no other addons)

Yes I have enabled them. Button on main frame and combat log remain hidden all the time. So it works except those new automatically created whisper tabs. Ive temporary disabled other addons, dont have many tho, and none chat related.
I was searching trough the code of different addon similar to yours, but coudn't make it to work. My programming skills are beyond this Im talking about http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ipperChat.html. May u wanna compare it to invastigate the problem more easily.

Have a god day
it's probably something very silly. I'm looking into it. I believe it has to do with how the frames are loaded after the xanChat is enabled.

It would make sense that it wouldn't work on newly created tabs. Since it will take a reload for it to take effect. I'm going to add a hook to check for new tabs and then perform a button cleanup. That should take care of it. Just want to confirm with you that this only happens after xanChat is loaded and after you create a new tab correct?

But to the question. When i recieve new whisper in new tab it seems like the scroll buttons dont hide, they reamain shown and the whole chat box is pushed to the right. I have all buttons hidden, so Id like to hide those from new tabs aswell.
it looks like this http://imgur.com/a/zPGQt
Do you know how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.
Thanks! I'm glad someone still uses the addon.

Where is this BNSetMatureLanguageFilter error you replaced? I haven't had an issue with my filtering options or an error being brought up on xanChat.

That is really weird for the whispers tab. On mine the scrolls are hidden. Here is what I need you to do. In the game type this /fstack it will enable Blizzards frame finder tool. Hover over the scrollbars and then scribble down what they are. Just type /fstack to turn it back off. Let me know what the scrollbars are and I will be investigating this myself. Thanks for the heads up!

Tell Target Suggestion

So I'm loving the lightweight addon. It works great in nearly every instance. One thing I do miss about Prat, though, is the "tell target" option. By typing /tt Prat would automatically whisper your current target. Perhaps it's just a thing I should deal with, but it was pretty handy.

Just a thought. Thanks again for all the addons!

The odd part is the fading seems to work fine for me. So I'm wondering if it's another addon altering it. I'll take a look at Kong.

Okay so what your saying is that, if you have several windows out the external windows don't have the tabs hidden?

I'm not too sure about the combat thing. Addons are restricted from doing a lot of things during combat. I'd have to look into that one for you. I'll look about adding the chat inactive transparency option for you.
