Hi, I'm new(again) to coding..
I was just doing a tutorial in @windows... Which are great, but what I'm really looking for is a way to filter up to 5 particular lines in succession from a dcc chat to anything else (@window, txt file, dialogue box).

Is this possible? confused

My previous exp was 4 years ago and only really with pretties and popups. I'm way out of my depth!

//filter -ww =nick @window *whatever*

=nick to make it look at the dcc chat of nick

I typed /window -e @last

then
//filter -ww =gambot @last *last*


but i got
* /filter: invalid window

I assume the =gambot is the invalid window it's talking about.. but it's hard to know

Thanks though.


edit:
ok... I tried just

//filter -ww gambot @last *last*

and that copied across

and

//filter -ww gambot @last *red*

actually sent across what I wanted. Unfortunately, I don't want the info from the query window. I got the same error message when i tried it with a =gambot in it frown

use "chat gambot" in place of =gambot, include quotes :tongue:

Someone else suggested having a remote to look at the dcc window or something? confused

Had a brainwave and tried "chat =gambot" ... still didn't work. lol



edit: Is there a way to denote the active window?
like maybe

//filter -ww $THISONE @last *last*

??
