"/fnord" is broken, as this command is suppose to echo "Nothing to see here." in text of the same color as the background.

This has been broken since mIRC 7.0
Quote:
86.Added check for foreground/background colors in control codes in text. If they are the same, the foreground color is changed to ensure the text is visible.


mIRC 6.35 running on XP
I had entered "//echo -a $os $version" then entered "/fnord" in the line below.


mIRC 7.19 running on XP.
I had entered "//echo -a $os $version" then entered "/fnord" in the line below.

I can confirm this.

We're all in great danger until it gets fixed! Don't let it eat you!


Its probably using
Code:
/echo -ac background Nothing to see here.

which leads me to the next question, shouldn't this print in the color of the background? after all, its the same as:

We explicitly tell it to be the color of the background.

As mentioned, it looks to use the -c switch with /echo. There isn't a background color specified in that case. It just sets the foreground color to the background color. So, based on that change, it makes sense to be in your normal text color.

That said, I'm sure Khaled could change that specific command to use a background color so it is hidden again.

What if my normal text color is clear?
