Print Skill Icon into Chat.

Is there any way to print a skill icon into the chat ?

I got this Line:
" "..aUser.." -> "..GetSpellLink(PspellID).. " XXX "..GetSpellLink(spellID)

PlayerName -> UsedSpell XXX KickedSpell

Basso -> [Kick] XXX [Lesser Healing]

into the chat if i kick something, but i want to replace the XXX by a specific spell icon.
that it looks like this:

Basso -> [Kick] [Lesser Healing]

if possible it shouldnt be bigger then the text but i think you get what i want now

is there anyway to do this ?
looked up the wow api but i havent found a clue.
i only got the path to the icon......

You can print textures into your own chat frame, but you cannot send them to other players (well, you can send them, but WoW will simply remove the textures and other players will only recieve the text of the message).

local _, _, icon = GetSpellInfo(PspellID)
print(aUser, "->", GetSpellLink(PspellID), "|T"..icon..":0|t", GetSpellLink(spellID)
See <http://www.wowpedia.org/UI_escape_sequences#Textures> for details about embedding textures in font strings.

Alternatively, you could use an addon like ChatLinkIcons that adds icons next to all spell/item links you see in chat.
