ChatIcons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.0.3
by: tardmrr [More]
ChatIcons adds item, spell, player class, and achievement icons to the chat frames next to player, item and spell links.

FAQ

Q: Why is the vertical alignment in the chatframes not exactly like it is in the example text?
A: I dunno. Just play with it until you find something you like.

Q: Sometimes it makes the fonts in my chat frame go all funny looking. What's up with that?
A: This is actually a Blizzard bug with embedded textures so all I can do is wait. The issue seems to be different depending on the font you use in your chat frame. I use a font other than the default in my own UI, and I don't have this issue. So you may want to try using a font addon to change the chat font if you have this issue (and it bothers you a lot).

Q: Why don't class icons appear in global channels and whispers?
A: ChatIcons only adds player icons to Party, Raid and Guild messages because the player's class is only reliably available in those contexts. I do not want to have inconsistent behavior in global channels and whispers when ChatIcons can place icons for the players it has seen and not for others. I also do not want to resort to hijacking Who queries to find out the class of people it doesn't know. Nor do I want to be keeping a record of what class everyone on the server plays.

I'm in the progress of working on code that originally was designed to modify the way Blizzard inserts class-colored player links to add race/gender and class icons based off the new function that allows us to pull such info from a player's GUID.

I've had a recent request to publish it, so I've expanded it to include the idea of this addon along with it using more efficient code while keeping compatibility with UIs that replace the chat handlers.


Edit: I finished my addon and it's been uploaded as ChatLinkIcons.

It hasn't. I really should get around to it, but the really annoying graphical bugs that sometimes happen when you embed textures in chat has caused me to stop using the addon myself. When I don't even use my own addon, it pretty much saps all of my enthusiasm for keeping it up to date :P

Thanks!

Fair enough. Any idea why I may be getting the error below with 3.1 but was not getting it before?

There's no reason that it shouldn't work with prat, but I haven't tested explicitly.
