Chat Window Manager

Fully compatible with pChat by Puddy & Ayantir
Big thanks to @Sacadon for the extremely generous in-game gold donation!

Ever been annoyed by chat spam when logging into crafting/mule alts, but don't want to be bothered setting up chat filters on every character? Ever wish the chat window would stay minimized when changing zones or reloading the UI? Or how about having the ability to keybind showing/hiding the chat window, or having a stylish button to click to reload the UI or clear the current chat?


This is a convenience and esthetics addon that will give you several new chat options:
  • Set a key binding to toggle the chat window so you don't have to click minimize/maximize.
  • Add a button to the chat window to reload the UI.
  • Shift-click the reload button to clear the currently active chat window.
  • Configure the chat window to auto-minimize when logging in, changing zones, or doing a /reloadui.
  • Optionally remember the current chat window state when reloading (see Addon Settings).
  • Set a key binding to reload the UI so you don't have to type /reloadui.
  • NEW: Type /clear to clear the active chat window.

If you turn "Add Reload/Clear Button" OFF, often times it will still be there at the top-left corner of your screen instead of anchored to the chat window, still very much clickable.

With the "Remember State" option turned ON, your chat will become visible after lockpicking a chest, whether it was visible to begin with or not.

Fixed in 1.07, thanks for the report.

Glad you enjoy it. I find it most useful when constantly re-logging testing addon changes I am working on.

I have added the feature you requested in the latest version I just uploaded. There is an option in the setting to enable state memory for the auto-reload feature.

Cheers!
That was fast! Thank you very much for implementing it.
