ONTOPIC ?
« on: March 25, 2006, 07:48:40 AM »
is there an ONTOPIC or some other way to determine when a topic have been changed

i want to parse through the topic every time it is updated and extract the parts of the topic that is of interest

No ONTOPIC event exists in IceChat 5.

No scripting event has been added for such.
IceChat 7 will have it added.

not even ONRAW reacts on topic changes so i guess i just have to give up on this and wait for ver 7 to have it implemented
i was hoping to find a way to build it myself through scripts

will it be added for VBS as well as the other script language in ver 7?
and which is the script language in ver 7?

Yes, it will be added to the VBS Script engine in version 7. The other script engine in version 7 is like the mIRC script engine. Not a 100% copy of it (nearly impossible) but very close. It will be the default script engine in version 7, but VBS scripts are still able to be used.

Yes, thats perfectly fine, thats why you have the choice of either in IceChat 7.
The VBS Script engine has not changed at all between versions 5 and 7 so far, but I will be making a few small adjustments to it, as they are needed/asked for.
