The wisper comand

I think that this comand should stay when you press enter, so you can write again to the same person without need to write each time [/w name ] or press up botton and clean the text.

I just post all ideas that I think that are useful.

No the mode does not exist. A command exists that lets you send whispers to other players. But, like you pointed out in your opening post it's inconvenient to use. The are a couple of drop in resources that open either a dialog or a frame to let you do whispers to selected players but there is no way to turn on a whisper mode in Chat that stays like that until turned off.

It's not a "mode", but the command "/rep" sends a whisper to the last user that sent you one, without typing his name.

Oh yea.... I had totally forgotten about putting that code in... it was so long a ago and was one of my first contributions.... thanks for the reminder as I expect that should help the OP at least a bit. think what he really wants is to be able to create multiple channels of chat, but that won't be until 1.4 and the earliest, but likely 1.5+ in all actuality.

It's probably easy enough to write a whisper only macro. Something like [whisper()] where "whisper" is a macro on a lib token that opens a frame with a text area, dropdown list of players and a submit button.

I thought of doing this before but outputting to another frame, but the problem with that is the focus of the new text. It will appear at bottom and if greater than the opened frame will need to be scrolled to see. So, a top down design could work, but players would have to be made accustom to it.

Lindsey put out a most excellent tool some time ago that does what your talking about.

Yeah, but it's a bummer to send a whisper to another person because you received another whisper in the mean time!

It's especially bad when you're the GM. :roll:

That's an excellent tool, but probably won't be of much help to Aspid, since it works via text area in a html form, and that configuration doesn't accept international characters.

Sad, but probably true.

Thanks for answer, this tool looks good, but if I cant write my dear "ñ" it will be a problem, furthermore my master is kind of lazy so he probably will not install it.

And about the comand [/rep] I knew it but what I mean or "want" its that I can press ENTER and continues typing.

A lot of times something like this happend to me:

Aspid wisper Rogue: yes, go to this corner and hide yourself
Aspid say: better left corner.


When I went to specify something I forgot to write again [/w Rogue ] and the GM see it.

Anyway, its not a big deal

Another good reason to have a custom whisper command, so it can be shared with the GM. As for international characters, I recently ran in to that limitation. Will/can it work with any other type of form submit? Like the built in input?

Input accepts international characters. My framework uses several workarounds to use international characters, but I haven't found any for html form submit (tried json, encode and mime).
