Links, Reconnecting, others in 20060322
« on: March 23, 2006, 08:47:33 PM »
Reconnect doesn't want to work (I restart icechat to fix it, I havn't tried removing the server tabs then trying to connect)(just fails to connect no matter what) and it seems to stop trying after the second attempt no matter how many times I have it set to try.
Links in the console don't work, and double clicking links in the topic just opens the channel info window.
Whenever I mess with settings, or close a window such as the channel info or settings windows, I get sent back to the console.
The server tabs (in the console) always seem to scroll to a point where half of them are offscreen, and I have to navigate to other tabs to restore them.
The scrollbars for the nicklist have white backgrounds still, and it looks funny with my windows theme ;]
If I click the little section between the bottom of the input box and the bottom of the window, I can resize a seemingly useless bar, but it won't shrink back down to it's original size.
^^^that's all for things i've noticed

I also have several questions
What can I do to make it so that /chanbarcolor works on console and @message?
The panels don't remember whether they're compacted or expanded (I hope you know what I mean), is this going to stay that way?
The color and emoticon boxes in the lower left corner, will there be an option to hide them in the future?

Whew, i'm glad I got all of that out of me ;]

Thats just too many errors to deal with.
And how about the errors file, anything there?

I dont know about the panels saving positions yet, will have to see. Not a priority.
Color and Emoticons buttons, same thing, not a priority.

Links still need work for many things, as do many things in the Text Window, that will
just come when its done.

That might help (I keep forgetting about it ;|  )

Glad to know that everything is being considered ;]

Ok, in looking through your errors file, I found the problem with your re-connect problem.
Will see if I can fix for next build.

I also found some errors to do with channel modes, there are some bizarre, non-standard modes that are causing IceChat to just "burp". I'll have to get more information about those in #icechat from you.

About the little bar at the bottom, here's a good reference pic of what I mean:

and this is how little I am able to get it afterwards:

Wow, thats bizarre. (The pictures most certainly helped)
Any idea how you are doing this?
Is it a multiline or single line edit box?
