Get chat text?

I've been trying for a while now to get chat text.

For example, someone whispers you, I want to get that whisper and save it in my saved variables so I can read it out later.

I'm just struggling to find a method that returns a chat message (specifically a whisper).

Is this possible?

Any chance you could give me an example of the format I'd want to use if I wanted to get a chat whisper? I'm a newb to lua still the syntax.

Lua Code:
  1. local EventFrame=CreateFrame("Frame");--    Create event listener, any frame type will do
  2. EventFrame:RegisterEvent("CHAT_MSG_WHISPER");-- Register event to listen to
  3. EventFrame:SetScript("OnEvent",function(self,message,sender)--  Create and register OnEvent handler
  4. --  Do something here
  5. end);
