Highlighted chanbar etc.
« on: October 02, 2006, 01:23:33 PM »
Well i don't know where to put this...
There are 2 things that i liked in icechat 5 and i don't see in icechat 7.

And those are:

/j command no longer works i have to type a whole /join

If in a channel I'm not looking atm, someone mentions my name (by highligth) in IC5 the channel bar would change to the color of my highlight. And now it doesn't.

Above all of that: A great client, I'm using it as long as i remember.

/j was an alias.
You simply re-add it into aliases.
Code: [Select]
/j /join $1

As for the Nickname Highlight, that is no longer in IceChat 7.
You can use Text Highlighting (In Colors) and just add $me as the word, and it always matches your nickname.
You can change the chanbar color with a command, its /chanbarcolor, since highlighting lets you run a command.
Code: [Select]
/chanbarcolor $chan 12
The above changes the channelbar color to 12 for the channel the highlight came in.
This way it is much more powerful, and you can do a lot more things with it.
