Fully compatible with pChat, rChat, and pretty much everything else.

Ever been annoyed by chat spam when logging into crafting 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.
  • Set a key binding or type /clear to clear the active chat window.
  • Add a button to the chat window and/or set a key binding 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 or changing zones (see Addon Settings).
  • NEW: Add the player online status selector to the chat frame for easy access.
  • NEW: Set a key binding to toggle between online/offline mode with optional chat output.
  • NEW: Added new Simple Delete option. When enabled, presents a simple Yes/No dialogue when deleting instead of having to manually type 'DELETE.'
  • NEW: Added option to hide friend login/logout status alerts from showing in the chat window.

New feature: Hide friend login/logout.

Version 1.29:
- Added new option, "Hide Friend Login & Logout." When enabled, prevents friend login & logout status messages from appearing in chat. Replaces old No, Thank You function that doesn't work anymore, mainly for use with rChat/pChat.
NOTE: This SHOULD work in all client languages. However, if zo_strformat introduces any unforseen text format characters it may require tweaking on a per-language basis. Let me know if your non-English client is still showing notifications.

I'll consider this for the next release.

Glad you like it! Your request has been added in the latest version. There is now an option (on by default) to show a Yes/No confirmation box when clicking the Reload UI button.

Great Addon, I love It. By chance is there any way to get a confirmation message when I click on the reload ui button? I have found myself accidentally clicking it when I go to expand the chat box. Happened a few times already lol.

Thank you!


Wow Thank you for the quick response and fix!

Hi, just wondering if the fix Baertram posted on the above linked thread fixed this for you? Otherwise I can look into it further.

Question Request For Account-Wide Settings

Please make the settings account-wide.
Especially the "Add Reload/Clear Button" setting.

Or at least give us the option of turning on account-wide settings. (So those that may not want them, for whatever reason, can choose to have the settings saved per-character.)

Having to turn that off on all of my characters will be a big undertaking. I'd hate for something to happen to my settings and have to go through that, again.

Thank you for the addon.

Phinix, is it possible to show the Chat Window when Looting?

I have managed to seperate the Combat Log from the Main Window to the right, but it now fades all over the Screen (as posted here)

Thx

Working fine for me. It is possible "load out of date addons" wasn't checked and the addon simply wasn't loading after an update to the game.

It may be possible depending on the source code and API functions available. Many times certain elements of the UI are local to their scope and not accessibly to modify through addons. I will make a note to look into it however.

Window keybind

The toggle window feature stopped working. I checked the keybind and reset it and reloaded the addon, but it still will not open or close the chat window on key press.

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.
