ChatLinkIcons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0
by: SDPhantom [More]

ChatLinkIcons adds icons to links in chat similar to ChatIcons with all original code and support for all player links. Even players outside of your party/raid.

ChatLinkIcons also integrates with Pawn for more utility. Links for items that are upgrades will show with a green upgrade arrow next to the link. This can be turned on/off in the options and requires Pawn to be installed and loaded for this feature to be available.

The following limitations apply:

  • Player links from system messages such as notices of friends/guildmates logging in will only display links if the game client had received a chat event or a combat log event fires involving that player.
  • RealID communication doesn't supply sufficient information to display uniform data for player links.
  • Unit links in the combat log that point to an NPC or pet do not have icons associated with them.
  • Talent links are currently unsupported as there is no API to take a TalentID from a link and get an icon for it.

Known Issues:
  • To combat taint with the Blizzard Communities frame, this addon uses Blizzard's MessageEventFilter API. This is notorious for being broken in 3rd party chat replacement addons.
  • Icons may initially appear blank. This is a Blizzard ChatFrame bug involving using in-game textures. Scrolling the ChatFrame makes the icons reappear.

Nope. This just places icons next to in-game links.

1.7 fixes a spelling error that kept the Draenei racial textures from showing. Both regular and Lightforged were affected. During the debug process for this, I noticed the player links from ChatFrames weren't caching correctly due to the links containing unique message ID numbers. It's unknown how much this'll impact combat log performance as a side effect, but this was a necessary action.

I've returned from my break and implemented support for BfA allied races. This should've been done when BfA was released, but apparently I slipped up and didn't actually upload this fix when I thought I had.

For those who like using Pawn, ChatLinkIcons now integrates with it to show upgrade icons next to applicable item links in chat. This of course requires Pawn to be installed and loaded in order to work. This behavior can be toggled in the options.

It took me a while to track down this one. The option was actually getting set, the problem was in setting the button state when the options panel was signaled to refresh itself. The button API had changed CheckButton:SetChecked() to accept true/false instead of 1/0. A fix for this will be up soon along with in-code support for Legion.

Great addon! Loving it and has helped me many a time in the past!

Unfortunately, there is a bug that has been floating around ever since WoD launch and still is (using latest release) so here I am reporting it. Long story short, the addon doesn't remember nor respect any options you have set in the options menu. For example, you don't want to see achievement icons so you untick the corresponding option, press okay and think you are good to go. Next thing you know, achievement icons are still shown in chat and the option is still ticked.

That wasn't the case with MoP, this is happening in WoD.

Thanks

I had it working in beta. I'll take a look into what might be causing the problem.

Edit: Turned out to be a packaging problem. The new zip file uploaded should work. In my haste to get the addon ready for uploading, I had missed the fact "Core.lua" had been named "Copy.lua". Changing the name back fixes the problem.

Are you trying to set a glyph or talent while in combat? There's no direct involvement between this addon and the talent/glyph system, however, Blizzard has been known to have these kind of glitches in their code when dealing with their own protected frames while in combat. As a fallback for their taint system, they blame the first addon they come across in the addons list. Addons with the first letter starting among the first letters of the alphabet are commonly targeted more this way than others.
