Hi. I currently use /play -t to output certain texts to a channel, but there are always mIRC-generated "Playing topic..." and "Playback of..." messages shown in the client. Example:

Code:
* Playing topic 'blah' from 'testing.txt' to #channel with 0ms delay
[02:42] > Test line 1
[02:42] > Test line 2
[02:42] > Test line 3
* Playback of 'testing.txt' complete


Does anyone know how to inhibit (squelch) those two lines? There doesn't appear to be a flag for it. Ideas?

use a ".", the dot will prevent the start/stop text from showing, same goes for timers and so on..

. without the " " ..

Fantastic -- thank you.

Is this documented anywhere? Sadly searching the mIRC help document is painful in this regard. I'm wondering if I missed something, or possibly an entire section which I should read. :-)

Again, thank you!

This behavior is noted under the "Command prefixes" on the Aliases help page.

Also, /help command prefixes brings you to that section.
