I'd like if possible to re-open this thread because there is a thing I don't understand.

I summarized :-)
I wanted to write the name of the player in other's chat (party, raid. instance etc etc) colored by class.
But the chat server always refused to process the "colored" name complaing about illegal chars (the escape codes). But it happily accepts the GetSpellLink(prefixParam1) that is the spell/ability casted.

Now I see that other addons are able to write colored player name in the chat frame.
I tried to understand how, but frankly I was not able to understand :-)

I attach an output.

As you see, axilea is my pg name and it is the killed one. Autopsy write in plain way while fatality is able to print class colored.
The first pg name colored (axilea and gheedo) is colored by the chat addon and it is not related to the report.

Any help / input / tips are welcome as usual.

Thanks to everyone.
