Movable Tabs
« on: January 01, 2008, 09:55:31 PM »
is there any chance that we can possibly see movable tabs in the next version? Personally I have issues where they NEED to be in a specific order and sometimes when I get kickbanned because people think it's funny or for an actually good reason, that order goes out of whack and I have to exit icechat and reopen it again to put it back in that order, and maybe other people might like this too, I dunno. So, is it possible?

I think it sounds like a good idea as well, but it's not up to me nor am I the one up all night coding it.

you can change in which order to join channels on autojoin in the server editor, and in the icechat settings there's a setting that allows the windows to stay open when you get kicked, and in the display settings there's an option to save the window sizes/positions when you quit.

This option is being considered for IceChat 8.

but morio, it closes the window once you've been kick banned, not just kicked. when it's just kicked, then the window stays open, but when there's a banning as well, THAT's when it closes.

There could be an option to leave a channel open, even after kick+ban or whatsoever.
But i strongly support this idea of moving tabs. Sometimes i miss-close a channel, so there's no way i can re-join and get it into the same position.

The channel window does not close on a ban, no client does that.

It closes on a kick, and there is an option to keep it open when kicked.

And like it has been said, IceChat 8 will have movable tabs.
