DCC File Transfer Removed
« on: November 19, 2017, 09:53:07 PM »
Why is DCC File Transfer capability removed from IceChat ? I had to use ChatZilla to download some ebooks... I'am sure a lot of members would've wanted it.

That's good —I will continue to use IceChat from now on —ChatZilla doesn't let you enter alt+number ASCII codes. Only please make a way to easily search through nicks, like with Pidgin —which lets you filter the userlist when you type in the text when you click the list.  :-)
P.S.: Okay it works —I tested it (DCC.) Sorry for any panic caused.

Ok, I did not make any changes to DCC, so it should have been still working.

The userlist/search feature is on the ToDo list.
I had tried it initially, and it causes nothing but issues. but I can have another look at it.

Thanks a _lot_ --you're the best !  :wink: On ChatZilla pressing a letter cycles through the nicks in the list --but I don't like this method --it's very crude. In Freenode channels like #ubuntu there are 800+ users so finding someone can be a PITA --so that's why we need this feature. Good luck resolving this issue & thanks !

Well, I generally use nick complete to find names, but I guess searching in the nick list would be handy as well.

When you have multiple nicks that start with the same letter, does it just go to the next one in the list?

Yes —it goes through all nicks beginning with the letter, in a loop. At the end it goes to the first one again, & repeats. I prefer Pidgin's search feature.
On Pidgin there's a tiny box below the userlist —it doesn't filter per se —just finds the most suitable match & scrolls to it. I should take a few screenshots (I think I've posted one before.)
ChatZilla is originally built into SeaMonkey & an addon for Firefox, but can be run standalone: ChatZilla on XULRunner.

Well, no search box will be added, but I have it working where typing the 1st letter will go to that nick, and loop through each, and go back to the beginning.
I will add this to 9.21, seems to work somewhat well.
