[*]Check out my other Add On, FCM Quest Tracker (Fully Customize-able Quest Tracker). Located HERE on ESOUI.com.
## v9.3.7.24 ##
===============
-- Default tab in settings now shows the tab names as opposed to the tab numbers.
-- Default tab settings moved to Chat Tab Settings
-- Updated libCustomTitles to the most recent version to address issues with RUEso add on.
-- Remember to disable libCustomTitles follow the instructions http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1765-DisableCustomTitles.html

Known Issue: Default Channel for default tab is still not functioning, I released this update early to accomadate issues with RUEso addon.

Note About Default Tab: -- If tabs are renamed it may take a reloadui to get refresh the names, but as long as the tab number is still the same there will be no issue. That is if you have your "Guild 1" tab as the default, and rename it to "G1", as long as the tab is in the same place the function for Default Tab will not be affected.

RECOMMEND TO RESET DEFAULT TAB TO THE NAMED TAB.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

## v9.3.6.24 ##
===============
-- Fix to 9.3.5.24, fixed default tab as it ceased to function. Programmer type :)
-- Added support for library libCustomTitles, to disable to to
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1765-DisableCustomTitles.html

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

## v9.3.5.24 ##
===============
-- Fix suggested by SlippyCheeze to avoid infinite loads
-- Combined the old keybinds with the ones recently added, now all keybinds under heading pChat.
-- Added Chat Tab Settings to addon menu. For coming options.
-- Added option to remember the last chat channel used in a tab.
-- API bump for Wolfhunter, testing completed. Will contineu to test til release.

Originally I planned on a major update, with many things I am working on for pChat, however I decided to do incremental updates. More to come for chat tab features, and fixes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

## v9.3.4.23##
===============
-- A fix put into place for line 1407 reported as a bad argument by Itabit
-- Restructred Settings menu, using submenus instead of annoying long list.
-- Changed default window darkness to 6 instead of 1.

Notes: I have not been able to duplicate the bad argument error reported by Itabit, however, he found a solution was to start with a fresh saved vars. I did code a fix, however I cannot confirm it will work at this point. Please report any problems you may get with this release.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

v9.3.2.23
=========
-- Fixed typos from Chat Tab lables for new bindings

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

v9.3.1.23
=========
This release was planned to have more changes, however I decided to push these out sooner to everyone.

-- Russian translation updated by alexesprit
-- Keybinds for up to 12 tabs, choose them in the Control options of the game menu. Choose keybinds for each tab, when pressed,
you will be in that tab.
-- Fixed default tab, it was being superseeded by Chat History, it is now setting default tab after history is loaded.
-- Changed transparency selection to chose between 0 to 11. Option "0" is not going to be the most transparent, but the default
ESO Background. "1" will be the most transparent, all the way up to 11 being the darkest. You may experience when using the
default option of 0 that it may appear too light or too dark, quit the game to desktop and go back in and it should be correct.

Next up, working on a rewrite of the settings which impact how the saved vars is saved, it will be highly likely that the Sync Chat option
may go away, opting for a selection of either character based settings, or account wide settings. Unless I discover another use of the chat
sync that will impact the add on negatively.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

v9.3.0.23
=======
-- Updated Chat Transparency to have 10 levels of transparency. Always wanted more choices on this :)

v9.2.23
=======
-- Updated libaddonmenu library to r26
-- Keybinding to whisper target is functioning correctly
-- Restored saving up to 24 hours of chat.

If this option is selected, pChat won't change channel when entering game, when leaving a party (if auto switch party is activated) and when reloadui/logoff. This option shoud be used for users of FCO ChatTabBrain who get an improved textEntry configuration.

Also, Restore History don't need anymore the ChatSync Feature being activated for LogOut, Kick & Quit.
Plus, the timer for chat restoration is now based on each message timestamp and not logout time (if you set the timer to 3h, delog/relog immediatly, the messages past 3h won't be restored). Please note that for a ReloadUI, this timer is still ignored.

Because of this small change, the chat reverted from previous versions of pChat won't get their colors but default channel ones. Plus all System Messages reverted from previous versions of pChat will be stripped.

- Fixed a bug which reverted (again) your guild colors to black after leaving a guild.

v2.4
=======
- Added History :
When you'll reloadUI Your TextEntry history (available with up/down arrow key) will re restored, your chat will be restored, your current channel will also be restored. This action is enabled per default and can be disabled.
If you active the Chat Sync feature (available in options - activated per default in last release), You could also activate this option if you LogOut get kicked on just leave game. For those 3 settings a shared timer in hours is added.
PS: If you crash (any reason), the last session won't be restored, but the precedent one, I can't do anything for it, just don't crash

- Added Switch to Next Tab feature - It will permit you to switch to the next tab. Default Keybind is Shift+Tab, if you hit Shift while stealth, you'll stand up, so you'll maybe need to rebind this action. You can change it in your UI settings keybinds

- Added Whisp Notification.
If you activate this option, when you'll receive a whisp, if your actual tab don't show IM's or you didn't scrolled at the bottom, a notification will pop at the top right corner of the Chat Window. If you click on sender name, the chat will scroll at the button or switch to the next tab with IM enabled and scroll at the bottom. If your chat was Minimized when you receive an IM, a "IM" button will appear in red in the mini chat bar. It will show you the sender name and it's IM.
Clicking on it will restore your chat and same as before. This feature is disabled per default.

Improved copy dialog, the pages 2+ didn't get focus when opening them
Fixed system messages which outputs now to all containers for users of ChatIt with this option activated.
Fixed the rare bug with leftGuild (I guess it's ok, I can't test it).
Fixed the default sound when receiving an IM, it was set to None, it's now "Notification"[/list]

For pChat color users, entry was generally set to dark red with v2.3
and an error at startup for few people who left a guild while using version 2.1+

v2.3
=======
- You can now choose in which tab System messages are displayed As the option is tab-dependant, the checkbox is in the parameters of your tab.
Take care: As a lot of addons output to chat, you're strongly prompted to keep at least SysMessages in 1 tab.
Developpers: Due to restrictions, pChat will snip your output to ChatSystem before this one will be completly ready (mainly for AddonLoaded debug).
- Fixes rares bugs with unknown books linked into the chat, convertName which was failing in some rares cases and Guild Reorganization

v2.2a
=======
- Automatic party switch re-enabled
- Fixed rare bug with Guild Reorganizations

v2.2
=======
- Fonts now use LibmediaProvider. Your font list may now be longer than before and shared with all addons
- Fixed font "Droid Sans"


v2.1
=======

- Added Font selector

15 new fonts included for people who would like to change their font.
To add yourself a font :
First, download a font with TrueType format (.ttf) or OpenType format (.otf)
Then paste it in pChat\fonts folder. You can create a new folder or just put the file here, as you want. Please don't include .txt files
Then, open with a text editor file pChat\fonts.lua (use notepad or a better tool, like Notepad++)
At the end of file, add your font like this : pChat.fontCollection["Font Name"] = "pChat/fonts/Folder/file.ttf" - Windows users must use "/" also.
Save and close.
Do a /ReloadUI ingame
Go in pChat settings, your font will be added in the dropdown Fonts. Just select it. It will reloadUI your game.
Take Care of Minion and updates, Minion and Updates generally erase the whole content of an addon. If your font is erased the chat won't be shown and the entrybox will be really small. If you get this problem, you can still type commands (like /reloadui) or go in pChat Settings and select font "ESO Standard Font"

EU Users : If you need to use your language specific characters, Here are the characters that the game actually handles. Some fonts don't include all of them : !\"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>[email protected] ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ [\]^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz{|} ~-

- Added anti-reorganization guild :
When you leave a guild, and the guild you just left was not the last of your list, the guilds are reorganized. Leaving Guild1 means your guild2 become 1, the 3 become2, etc
So, now, when you leave a guild, pChat just rollback your guild color settings / Chat tabs settings / Your pChat default channel

- Fixed color of entry box for users of pChat colors. Now the entry color is same as 1st pChat color. If you use ESO social colors, you don't care of this fix.


v2
=======
- Added an Anti-Spam : For now, 3 subfilters :
Flood, Enabled per default. Protects Only geo-channels (Zone, ZFR, ZDE, ZEN, Say, Yells, Emote) Same messages in defined timer (0-180 seconds, 30 per default) are dropped.
Looking For : Disabled per default, Drop LFG/LFM messages in all channels
Want To : Disabled per default, Drop WTB/WTS/WTT messages in all channels

Please note: For Looking For and Want To message, if you enable the protection and YOU bypass the system, it will auto disable for a certain period, configurable, in minutes (0-10, 5 per default).

Guild Recruitment and Gold Spam will be added in a future release.

- Added feature: Wisp Char instead of account in Guild messages, if only Character name is shown
EU Users : If you cannot group your guildmates with accentued chars, the guildmate MUST submit an ingame ticket to ZOS for renaming due to Accentuation problem (generally done in a day).

No problem. See what you can do and if not, maybe the ZOS guy who visits here might be interested (if it's a game bug).

I will fix that, it depends on a library. That was from the original code, and should not have that reference. A lot of addons use that library, so as long one of them has loaded it it would work fine. I will fix that reference soon.

Did some testing using Alt+W, or any other Alt+ combination. It does happen when you use Alt+ anything. Not exactly sure why. However, any other key bind combination, Ctrl+W, Shift+W, it works fine. Only when the Alt key is involved does it create a problem. Such as Alt+W, Ctrl+Alt+W and Shift+Alt+W.

In the coding I see nothing that could cause an issue, the key bind executes code that puts it in whisper mode, and places cursor in box. Why it pasues on the first character because of the Alt key is a good question.

This may take some time to research, it may be a bug from the UI itself in regards to the "Alt" key being used in this way. I use a lot of Alt+ key binds and never had any issues but not many of them involve the same type of action that pChat is performing.

I did try to bind it to add ons that use a bind to display to chat, and they did not experience the same problem. Though that is not exactly the same type of action that is being attempted with whisper to target.

With all that said, I would recommend at this time to bind to any key combination not using Alt.

I wanted to test this, but have run into an obscure problem.
I disabled all addons and only enabled pChat afterwards, reloaded the UI, and there are no settings. The Settings->Addons page is empty. The addon is active though.
Wtf :-O

edit:
After another reloadui, I get this LUA error:
user:/AddOns/pChat/lib/LibAddonMenu-2.0/LibAddonMenu-2.0.lua:845: function expected instead of nil
stack traceback:
user:/AddOns/pChat/lib/LibAddonMenu-2.0/LibAddonMenu-2.0.lua:845: in function 'lam:RegisterAddonPanel'
user:/AddOns/pChat/pChat.lua:6048: in function 'GetDBAndBuildLAM'
user:/AddOns/pChat/pChat.lua:6255: in function 'OnAddonLoaded'

edit2: 7) seems to work. Disregard it then

3) Keyboard shortcuts for scrolling the chat window? Like PgUp/down for example.

4) Possibility to change the channel with a key, like Tab (when in typing mode) to get a list of available channels.

5) Dragging items directly to chat instead of having to use the "create link" feature.

6) Ability to change the order of chat tabs.

7) When you use the "whisper my target" feature, the first letter you type is ignored.

8) When you hide the entire UI and press enter, the text box part of the chat bugs out and you have the /reloadui.
I will add items 1-6 to the features, and look into them. Some good ideas.

As for "Whisper My Target", I am not able to duplicate that problem. It is working on my setup, can you tell me what key bind you are using? For me it whispers fine, and does not ignore the first character.

"Hide Entire UI" also works for me as well. I hit the enter key both with the UI off and right after I bring it back and I am not experiencing any bugs. Can you provide any more details?

Are you using any chat based Addons? If so you may want to disable them and try again and report back the results.

Is there perhaps a line in the SavedVars I can manually edit?

I understand! And thank you. I went back to v9 for now, as it's been working for me okay

Your welcome.

Still working on bugs so let me know what does not work.
The restore feature went from 24h to 2h max, was this intentional or a typo? thanks for updating it, though, and for your time in that.
