Hi,

I have one idea that I would love to see on mIRC.
When you move the mouse pointer above the nickname show all the nickname.

Example:
The size of my Nicklist shows only: "mIRC_Is_Ve", but I dont wanna to increase more the nicklist size. So I put the mouse pointer above the nick and shows "mIRC_Is_Very_Good".

I think this would be nice wink

i like this idea, maybe there could be something like
Code:
on *:nickhover:#channel:{
  echo -a I am hovering over $nick
}


It could be used with a balloon dll.

How about to show all the nickname when a user as been selected in the nicklist ($snick()) and then hover over. Just so it doesn't switch between nickname to nickname too quickly.

Just my opinion, either way I'd still like to see your idea implemented.

All the best,

Andy.

Yeah, doing this in the form of a tooltip
like the switchbar would be great.

Alot of that could be dealt with with the hotlink event admitidly it currently does not function over a side listbox (or does it better check that) (no it doesnt bummer!) and a command to just load a tooltip text. This would give complete freedom of programming of what ever you want displayed.

On the original Feature Suggestion, yeah I would like that as well, I hate moving that in and out.
