Hi,

I've searched the forum and unless I'm missing it somewhere, I don't see any answers to this question.

Since the upgrade to 7.38, the 'Channels List' obtained from /list is no longer showing channel modes. I was expecting this, as this change in behavior was detailed in the 7.38 changelog, however, I don't see a way to turn the inclusion of modes back on again.

I can understand that for most regular users, this isn't an issue, but I operate my own site and myself and the admins all use mIRC.

Having the modes listed in the 'Channels List' was useful for us to avoid entering +s/k/i//p/l moded channels without being invited. Regular users, I know, wouldn't be able to see/enter these rooms anyway but its a pain for admins who can walk these channel modes.

Please can someone tell me if (and how) I might be able to get the modes to be listed in /list again, without just rolling back the update or having to do something like request room modes for a channel from ChanServ before entering.

Thanks for your time smile

I already stated that I understand it was intentional to stop modes from being listed in the /list output.

My question is asking if there is a way to turn this back on ... or to script a way to show the modes in the /list output again, because, although it has been stated that the showing of channel modes in /list was a bug, I know very many people, including myself, who found this extremely useful.

I don't know if it is possible to add the channel modes on the default mIRC Channel List window but i am sure it can be coded and replace it with your custom window, you need to create raws and aline the output of raws into an custom window and close the mIRC default channel list window.

Help details:

1. /help /window
2. /help /aline
3. /help raw events
4. /help /close

Raw numerics are: 321 322 323

Thanks, I was really hoping to avoid scripting a solution to this, not that I couldn't do it, but more because I feel a lot of admins, not just my own, feel that the previous behavior of showing the room modes, was very useful.

As I think about it, I don't think I can remember a time when mIRC hasn't listed the channel modes in the 'Channels List' window. It seems odd to me that, only on this version, it is now described as a bug.

I would hope that mIRC would go back to the previous way of listing channels, even if it was only for o:lined users ... or maybe as a configurable option in the Tools >> Channels List menu option.

This change was made because the modes are not useful to the majority of users and only seemed to clutter the list display. However, I did not realize that they were actively used by admins in this way. This change will be reverted in the next version.
