How to get a channel chat color?
 
Hello,

I found ChangeChatColor("channelname", red, green, blue) tu change a channel chat color, but I didn't find how to retreive a channel's color, something like:
Code:

r,g,b = GetChatColor("channelname")
Thank you.

You can use Chat_GetChannelColor()

For example
Code:

local r, g, b = Chat_GetChannelColor(ChatTypeInfo.CHANNEL1)
The colors themselves are received from the server in UPDATE_CHAT_COLOR

Well,
Code:

local r, g, b = Chat_GetChannelColor(ChatTypeInfo.CHANNEL1)
works, but I'm unable to know the name of indexed chans, aka "CHANNELX"

Besides, UPDATE_CHAT_COLOR only returns lots of nil values.

Any tips of how to get the RGB color of, for instance, "OFFICER" channel?

There is GetChannelName()

For Officer that would be this, it should be available after at least PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD
Lua Code:
  1. local function OnEvent(self, event)
  2.     local info = ChatTypeInfo.OFFICER
  3.     print(info.r, info.g, info.b)
  4. end
  5.  
  6. local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
  7. f:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")
  8. f:SetScript("OnEvent", OnEvent)
or from UPDATE_CHAT_COLOR
Lua Code:
  1. local function OnEvent(self, event, name, r, g, b)
  2.     if name == "OFFICER" then
  3.         print(event, name, r, g, b)
  4.     end
  5. end
  6.  
  7. local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
  8. f:RegisterEvent("UPDATE_CHAT_COLOR")
  9. f:SetScript("OnEvent", OnEvent)
