Hi all.
Is there an event for "on mouse over" in nicklist?
I just found some dlls, it would be nice if it is possible to do it without dlls.
Thanks.

That would be pretty awesome to have indeed. For example, I for one would love for a script to be able to show all the internally-known details [*] of a particular nickname upon hovering over that nickname. I believe that can already be done for nicknames in the channel window, but not in the nicklist. Perhaps this is worthy of a feature suggestion..

[*] especially given the recently added IAL extensions!

Yes @Sat, I was looking for something like that.
I think you can do interesting things.

BTW maybe it would be nice for a new suggestion

I was just doing this the other day. I tried creating my own hovering tooltip using Dialogs, but there is no /did for resizing text controls, nor for detecting font information to determine correct $width(). The best I can come up with is an always-on-top desktop tool window that is dynamically positioned nearby the $mouse.x and $mouse.y, or in static relationship to $window($active).dx .dy and .dw .dh (two different coordinate spaces, i know).

There are no very pretty solutions. A /tooltip command would be a nice compliment to balloon /tips.

Oh, and I'm using On Hotlink for hovering over nicknames in channel, but not the nicklist.


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

@Raccoon Sorry for my late reply, but I was busy these days.
I was doing the same.
I think the only solution right now is "On Hotlink nicknames in channel", and I was using custom windows.
By the way I'm afraid this will use a lot of resources (and my PC is a potato).
So I was looking for a better solution.
