Hello all, I have a nice suggestion (in my opinion :P): The ability to manipulate the Channel Favorites through a commands-interface so it can be scripted. So that we do not have to script our own auto-join/favorites-scripts, but instead use mIRC's already built-in functionalities. smile I'm creating a script and I'm really missing this ability, hence the feature request.

It's been a long while now (8 months) and I'm still missing this feature and I don't see any changes in mIRC 7.23 beta that indicates this feature is forthcoming nor has anyone replied.

Any thoughts about this? Nobody likes?

I'm not saying it's a bad idea, but it seems a little strange. You're asking for a way to script something so that you don't have to script something.

He's asking for a way to script something in order to properly integrate with mIRC's existing features/UI. There's no reason to re-script channel favourites if the functionality exists.

That said, I'm sure Khaled looked at this request 8 months ago. It's probably somewhere on his todo list (or maybe not). Just because you ask for something does not mean it will be added, so in the meantime you *should* look at a completely scripted solution (as in, one without the existing favourites feature).
