Channels in the panel
« on: December 29, 2005, 09:43:34 AM »
It would be nice if the channel list could be put into the panel on the right.
Like a fourth option besides "Favorite channels", "Buddy list" and "Favorite servers".
The list at the top should be disabled then...

That is a good idea, but there is 1 problem with it.
What if you want a Channel List for 2 different servers? It opens 2 windows now, I would need to add more panels for each list, which could get complicated.

Ever considered using a treeview? You could integrate the Channel bar with the Server list that way.

Way to messy.

I have made a new way to do Channel Lists anyways, it will do it all online through SearchIRC.Com, since that is SO much faster to find channels.

The server list is a treeview already, and will eventually show open Channels/Queries, I just have not gotten around to it.
But as for getting the full channel listings, I want to move away from people using the /list command, and using that online Database (SearchIRC) which is a lot quicker.

Why not simply add the channels one below another just like you do it now horizontally?! You just had to turn the tabs by 90

Now they are this way:

[server] [#channel] [#channel] [#channel]

Why not put this into the panel:

[server]
[#channel]
[#channel]
[#channel]

It is just another way of displaying the tabs not recoding anything...

Ok, are you meaning a Full Channel List, or just the channels that are open for each server?

If you mean open channels, I am not finished on the treeview yet for the Server List, its still in the works.

I want it to be just like it is now horizontally.
The only change is to put it into the panel on the right handside and make it vertically sorted.
The number of channels and order should be the same as it is now
