Is it possible to set $nick as a Nick Identifier within a set %variable?

I know you can use /set -n to treat value as plain text.

When I use this statement in a alias it returns my nick and not the Identifier $nick

alias test {
set -n %line Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....
}

This is what i get
%line Hello , Your message has been recieved....

This is what I am trying to achieve when I set the command
%line Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....

The only way it seems to work is if I use this command
/set -n %line Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....

If I try to use it in a alias it does not work. any Ideas on how to achieve the correct responce to using this in a aliases?

Is this what you are looking for?

I'll use $ctime as an example:

//set %ctime $ctime
//echo -a %ctime

Echos: 1153611089


//set %ctime $!ctime
//echo -a %ctime

Echos: $ctime

I am trying to set a variable %line
to contain this information

Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....

that way I can edit my message. the variable would be used in a statement like this

on ^:OPEN:?:*: { msg $nick %line }

Code:
 
alias myLineOfText return Hello $1 $+ , Your message has been received.... 

on ^:OPEN:?:*: { msg $nick $myLineOfText($nick)}
 


Not the only way to skin this particular cat, of course!

I am trying to set the line as a variable so other users can edit the line without having to edit the script. that is why I am looking for a way to use this as an alias so when the script is loaded it will not display the users nick.

it seems to be more of a bug within the /set command being used as a alias.

it works using /set -n %line Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....

but not when I use it as an alias
alias test {
set -n %line Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....
}

you're trying to get the actual $nick in there, and, not to replace it with the nick? sorry, I'm just not understanding.

ok, understood, I have NEVER tried this, but, I don't know, maybe you could do something like set %line $ni $+ ck w/e here
I don't know, I'll try it really quick, and, if I get there before you, then, I'll let you know what goes on laugh

genius-at-work told you how to do this
test this
Code:
alias test {
  set %line Hello $!nick $!+ , Your message has been recieved....
  msg $active %line
}

using the ! stops the identifier from performing, see if this will do what you asked

Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved....

For that as yuo have been told already its set %line Hello $!nick $!+ , Your message has been recieved....

Quote:
on ^:OPEN:?:*: { msg $nick %line }

For this i beleive you well find you need to use on ^:OPEN:?:*: { msg $nick $(%line,2) }

other wise you really well send "Hello $nick $+ , Your message has been recieved...." to the nick.

Thanks davec.
What I was doing, was setting the variables for a script I need to update.

The problem was, when the identifiers were loaded into the dialog window on load. it was loading my own nick as the nick name in the reply message.
