Getting desperate: Channel amounts
« on: July 05, 2004, 06:27:31 AM »
I'm in about 35 channels,

and growing daily, and it's getting very difficult with IceChat as the buttons are now so tiny and crammed in they are

impossible to use on the channel bar. Away from the channel bar, there isnt a very good way to get around


what I would like to suggest is making the channel bar have a few more


Filterable (Only show channels from one networks, select from a drop down

An MS Office style dropdown arrow that shows the remaining ones in a menu at the end that comes down


consider implementing something like this as it's getting rather desperate.

Thanks :)

How about being able to rearrange the channels in the channel

bar? I use the XChat IRC client on Solaris and Linux and it has a feature to do that, but I haven't seen a Windows IRC

client yet that can do the same. Even the Windows version of XChat can't do it  :roll:, and I stopped using it when it

stopped being free :evil:.

IceChat 5 is the best alternative to XChat I've seen so far, so keep up the good work

I am re-working the Channel Bar in the latest Alpha 0028, and

it will have much more expandability. Working on making a Combo Box for which server you are on, and adding a DropDown box at

the end, if the row gets too large. I hope to get that done in this Alpha, but maybe not completely until Alpha


As for re-arranging the windows, sounds a little tricky, but I will give it a shot.
