Is there a way I can tell mIRC to start flashing for a channel ?

Like when someone says something it flashes red n such.

I don't know of a way (even via scripting) to make the channel tab buttons flash whilst mIRC is the active application.

You can right click the channel window and check 'Flashing' to make mIRC flash every time someone says something in the channel. You can also go to ALT+O > IRC > Options and check 'Channel message' under 'Flash on:' which has the same effect except for all channels.

Also might want to look at /help /flash.

These methods will only activate when mIRC is not the active application however.

you can also just hilight channels different colors when people talk and even another color if its only some modes or join/part. its all in the options.

hmm..

The way i was doing it was to halt the TEXT event and echo it myself into the window. So each time someone wrote something the channel became gray instead of red if you get me. Which I found confusing :\ .

What I should be asking instead is if I can override default mIRC modes.. ie when someone says something i want it to be displayed another way like <<$nick>> instead of <$nick>.

One more issue, how can i detect a query in on INPUT ?

$chan returns $null, and Ive tried mostly anything without luck.

$nick returns your own nick when using on INPUT..
$nick returns the correct nick when using on TEXT

so i cant use msg $nick $1- in INPUT. Any ideas?
Ive thought about using say, but it doesnt get stopped, I get an echo and the default message


*confused*
