Just got the AMIP plugin for winamp that allows you to have irc integration via $dde calls. I made an alias

/playing say $dde(mplug,format,"Now_Playing:_%no)"

Which would output: <Techwid`> Now Playing: Artist - Song

This works fine, but I want to add colors to it. However if you add a comma into it for background colors dde complains about insuffcient parameters

Example:
$dde(mplug,format,"?14,1Now_Playing:_%no")

I tried doing the \ and / to tell mirc to ignore the comma and just output it to screen (like in c++) but that didn't work. So my question is, what character tells mirc to ignore the value of a character and just output it to the screen ?

I also played around with the /dde way of doing dde calls, but I don't think its possible to execute a say that way. So any help on how to do that would be appreciated thanks!

Try putting the colour code outside the dde call
Code:
playing say 14,01 $+ $dde(mplug,format,"Now_Playing:_%no)

or replace commas with " $+ $chr(44) $+ " in the dde

because in mirc script everything is a string, if you would use "\," or "/,", it will be "\," smile

King tomato, me lub you long time. Thats the solution I needed THANK YOU.

and to the person who wondered where I got that script, you can grab it here
AMIP

But be forewarned, I didn't test others or anything. I just did a google search came across that and it has worked very well so far.
