Turn off chat channels when grouped.

Looking for something that would turn Guild Chat (or other channels) off when you enter a group/raid, then turn them back on when you are solo again.

It'd look something in the lines of this. Do you need it wrapped up into an addon?

Code:

Could always make a tab just for group. So should you need to talk in other channels you you can select the appropriate tab to see replies.

OMG that is great!
Could you wrap it in an Addon, or direct me to some instructions to wrap it?

The reason I ask is that I'm in a huge - huge - really huge guild and sometimes guild chat is busier than Trade chat. I don't mind it when I'm just solo or in lfg, but when I group I don't want to miss what the group is saying in the wall of green.

While I'm not out to discourages anyone, especially Yourstruly (no, not me, the other guy) it seems a LOT more practical to me (as MidgetMage55 suggested) to simply create a new chat TAB and have ONLY party (or guild) chat show on that tab, that way you can switch back and forth between them and not miss ANYTHING.

The reason for this obviously, is so that if someone is trying to talk to you in guild chat, and you are running an addon that hides or blocks guild chat while in a party, you may miss it; sure said person could always whisper you, but that defeats the purpose of having a guild chat doesn't it?

Whats more, say your the only person in the guild that is online that can make a certain item or consumable, if you had been able to see the guild chat you may have caught it and been able to save your guildy some time and money, but obviously if you never see it, that can't happen, just some things to think about.

At any rate, good luck with your issue.

Simplest solution is simplest. I was just too narrow minded at the time to actually think of it but that may because I haven't used multiple tabs for ages.

Edit: At least there's an example here if anyone needs it.

Actually, I do have a separate tab for guild chat.

But, yes this is why I asked for this, I like to be able to see guild on Tab 1 with everything else unless I'm grouped.. If I am in a group or raid I want to turn it off in tab 1 (it can continue in tab 3 forever). I just want to automate switching Guild Chat off in Tab 1, I do it manually now.

The script I posted would affect all tabs unless you do self:GetName()=="ChatFrame1" and going with what MidgetMage55/Gsusnme said would be easiest/best solution.

Not saying it's a bad idea using my script, just saying it'd be a lot easier and you know it wouldn't break even with patches as it's just some chat settings.


Edit: Now they never specifically mentioned it but you could make one tab with everything shown and another tab with everything except guild and just switch over when you need to. I am on my way to the dentist at the moment but when I get home I'll make the changed to only filter ChatFrame1 and zip it up as an addon incase you still want it.

Can you post it as an attachment please, instead of to a random outside host?

Thanks.
