Hello

The InputBox can be resized, to just be 1 line,

or more.

There is a blue line all across the top of the InputBox.
When you move your mouse over it, you will see

the icon change.
Drag the line down until you get the size you want. It doesnt change right away, not until you release

the mouse button.

Just keep resizing it, until you get the size you want, a single lined box.

I already know how to resize edit box. But my question is

other.
I want to use multiline edit box like ICQ. But I dont want to see the sended messages in edit box. For exemple -

ICQ chat window - when message is sended, it`s disappear from the edit box. Like as one-line edit box - typing something,

sending, and after this edit box is clear.
May be I am stupid, asking for this, but this problem excite me.

So you do not want it to remember any of the old messages you

have sent?

Sorry, but that is a feature of IceChat, so its not something that can be disabled or turn off. In fact,

the majority of people want a feature like this, in case you want to send a message, that you had sent before, you can use

up/down arrow to look through history.

I can not make any promises, as its an unusual feature, as

most people would not turn this off.

I will take it into consideration.

Thanks

I'm afraid you still did NOT understand the actual problem

snerf.
He does _not_ want the arrow-up function to be removed :!:

If you type Text in a multiline edit-box and hit

enter it happens that the text you just sent is not removed from the edit box in such a manner that it keeps being

there!
In other words: the edit box is not being cleared after hitting enter!
He wishes a multi line edit box which is

being clreaed after hitting enter but still hasthearrow-up feature.
I hope that

helped...
regards

Perhaps, but he was not very clear on the fact.
In any

case, will have to wait for the next version whether this will be implemented or not.

I was going to come on here to ask the same question.

It really is a problem feature:

I'm talking to my woman in private, telling her I want to smother her in pie.

Then I go to a public channel, and my mouse slips and highlights all the messages I've just sent. Not realising my error I hit enter.

Suddenly, all my previous messages are splattered accross a public channel.

I got killed from the server man!

Thankfuly I downloaded the latest version where this feature is disabled by default :D Too late to prevent my embarrassment however :-\

Yes, I must admit, the feature was a bad idea for ver 5.20, which is why it was disabled by default in 5.50. It has caused more grief then anything.

For ver7, the multiline box is still there(still disabled by default), but it clears like the single lined version of it, you just have a larger editing space.

The multiline edit box was made for simplifying pasting data into the edit box, if it had a lot of data. The implementation of it was just done incorrectly. Still looking into "tweaking" it better for ver7.
