Is it possible, not that I have a valid reason to add one at this time (one in the pipeline), to add a list box to a channel window?

that way, you would have:
Code:
 ______________________
| L |              | N |
| I |              | I |
| S |    MAIN      | C |
| T |   CHANEL     | K |
|   |   WINDOW     |   |
| B |              | L |
| O |              | I |
| X |              | S |
|   |              | T |
|___|______________|___|


Somethink that looks like that?

or maybe:
Code:
 ______________________
|                      |
|    LIST BOX          |
|______________________|
|                  | N |
|                  | I |
|       MAIN       | C |
|      CHANEL      | K |
|      WINDOW      | L |
|                  | I |
|                  | S |
|                  | T |

had to put them in code flags otherwise they wouldn't have looked as I wanted to (Ease of explanation!).

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

I recall in a thread not far from this one that Online said:
Quote:
Besides a few coloring/retrieving commands, you can't modify the channel listbox. The way around it would be creating a custom @window with a side-listbox (/window -el15 @chan), hiding the real channel (/window -h #chan), and responding to every channel event/raw in order to /echo them to your custom window... not easy at all.


Would that be a suggestion in this case, or can you only even have one listbox for each custom window?

Looks like only one is possible, by using the -lN switch. anyway, Picwin experts can create anything smile

I'd like to see that as a mIRC feature for favourite channels.

What do you mean for favourite channels? how? and which one (top or side)?

Never heard of Picwin!!!

What is it/does it do?

Presumably use a dll? - That's one thing I would like not to have to use... The only dll I want (have) to use is blowfish although I am considering simply using $hash(%var,32) as I think it is strong enough and I'm not using a HIGHLY secretive script!!

[edit]
As you have the command to add a listbox to a custom window, would it not be simple enough to have a similar thing to add one to a channel window?

The top one.

Well, favourite channel list or even the channels you are currently in. I've seen it on some Java applets. Perhaps it could be an alternative to all the ideas about modifying the switchbar.

Never heard of Picwin!!!

Short for Picture Window (So I'm told anyway)
