NeonChat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2
by: mikma [More]
NeonChat does a simple thing:

It colors the chat+editbox border+background to match the active chat you are about to write.

Now it's easier to notice if you are about to talk into a wrong chat!
Prettiness rules OK!
3.2:
* .toc 60000

3.2:
* .toc 50400

3.2:
* GMChatFrame doesn't result an error now.

3.1:
* 4.3 update

3.05:
* Added a slashcommand to toggle chat coloring on/off.

3.04:
* Now uses the border of default Chat EditBox and simply applies a background to it.
* Colors background of the chatframe, too.

3.03:
* Took a try to fix the "Huge" editbox issue with whisper frames

3.02:
* Old style chat editbox is back.
* Now highlights correctly the focused chat frame.

3.01:
* Fixed error with IM mode and custom channels.
* Works with Classic mode.

3.0:
* Complete rewrite for 3.3.5
* Removed options since game colors input now and people still need the chat to be colored :)

2.02:
* ChatEditBox background alpha works again like it should

2.01:
* Spells/Items in ChatFrame1 can now be re-linked if NeonChat -frames are visible

2.0:
* Recode for WoW 3.1 (just cleaned up the code to be nicer :)

1.4:
* top updated to 3.0

1.3.1:
* toc updated to 2.4

1.3:
* Added option to color ChatFrame1 border
* Added slashcommand to toggle the chatborder on/off
* Renamed DB in order to reset old settings

1.2:
* Fixed an error that would pop up if you would have stickychannels on. (ie. You have sticky Trade on and as active channel, exit city and press enter = error)

1.1:
* Added slashcommand, /neonchat (You can now change the alpha of the backdrop and border)
* Added a minor color into chatinput background

1.0:
* Release

/neonchat does that trick, but on the other hand, the game has builtin editbox coloring (not as nice tho , so you could just disable the whole addon then.

A quick fix (since apart from this startup error the addon works fine)

Right click -> download and save as NeonChat.lua replacing the original.

Link just leads to http://pastebin.com/GaSXLFE0 which is a text file for the security paranoid.
(not an altogether bad affliction to have).

Unfortunately bugged in WoW 4.3 (worked fine up to & including 4.2).

v3.05, USEnglish client/server, WoW 4.3 live, no other mods running (except BugSack/BugGrabber/StatBlockCore). Log on and immediately the following are thrown up:

Code:
["message"] = "NeonChat\\NeonChat.lua:34: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'r' (a nil value)\n<in C code>: in function `ChatEdit_UpdateHeader'\nInterface\\FrameXML\\ChatFrame.lua:3671: in function `ChatEdit_ResetChatType':\nInterface\\FrameXML\\ChatFrame.lua:3652: in function `ChatEdit_OnShow':\n<string>:\"*:OnShow\":1: in function <[string \"*:OnShow\"]:1>\n<in C code>: in function `Show'\nInterface\\FrameXML\\ChatFrame.lua:3709: in function `ChatEdit_ActivateChat':\nInterface\\FrameXML\\InterfaceOptionsPanels.lua:980: in function `InterfaceOptionsSocialPanelChatStyle_SetChatStyle':\nInterface\\FrameXML\\InterfaceOptionsPanels.lua:907: in function <Interface\\FrameXML\\InterfaceOptionsPanels.lua:894>:\n",

            ["session"] = 4940,
            ["counter"] = 1,
        }, -- [998]
        {

            ["session"] = 4940,
            ["counter"] = 1,
        }, -- [1000]
This is unfortunately consistent behavior, no matter the mod load.

Can't tell if this is a Cellular or Neonchat problem (happens only when both are enabled):

Whenever I hit the reply button, it pops up a big blank colored box the same size as my chat window, just awkwardly sitting there until I've finished typing and hit enter. I've tried using the "/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage( GetMouseFocus():GetName() );" command to get its name but I just get "WorldFrame".

Donate me 1 month subscription or wait until beta allows addons. Those are your options at the moment.

Quite possible, when addons start working in Cataclysm Beta. I don't have active subscription at the moment.

Yeah up until 3.3 it worked fine for me as well and it did work great with PhanxChat. Anyone else having problems more recently with the latest WoW client?
