I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but according to the help file, if you prefix a command with a period, it will perform quietly.

How come it doesn't work with /localinfo?

/.localinfo

returns:

-
Local host: <localhost> (ip address)
-

I prefixed the /localinfo command with a period, so it should have just updated my localhost information, and should not have printed the results. I would call this a bug.


From the help file:

If you want to force a command to perform quietly ie. without printing out any information, then you can prefix it with a "." fullstop. For example:

/ignore somenick

Would print out information telling you that you are now igoring "somenick". If you don't want this information to be displayed, then you can use:

/.ignore somenick

Not all commands have the capability of being quite. I know that this occurs and will always occur just from doing the raws when you connect. You'll notice when you connect to a server, mirc tends to do a /localinfo on you, and you cannot hide it. >:\

Try the command /USERHOST instead.
This is the server command that /LocalInfo uses, when you have the (o) Server option ticked or when you /LocalInfo -u

Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

I believe that an "on LOCALINFO" event would be even better.

Yea but mIRC resolves the /userhost to an IP. Some servers have /userip, but most don't...
