Posted By: uicnren question about switchbar - 29/01/05 06:44 PM
Have been searching, but to no avail.

Is it possible to create an alias that would allow me to change the number of display lines on the switchbar ?

I would like to be able to switch the number of lines without having to open the options dialog.

I havent been able to locate any identifiers associated with the switchbar, so I dont know if it is even possible.

Thanks for any input.

mIRC don't have such alias to make it directly, but you can do it fast ussing send keys(you must say thanks to qwerty for his sendkeys alias)..

Example of ussing: /ChangeLines 3
Script will only work when mIRC will be the active application.

Alias ChangeLines {
  if ($appactive) sendkeys % $+ o {END}{UP}{UP}{UP} % $+ l {HOME} $str({DOWN},$calc($1 - 1)) {ENTER}

alias sendkeys {
  var %a = sendkeys $+ $ticks
  .comopen %a WScript.Shell
  if !$comerr {
    var %b = $com(%a,SendKeys,3,bstr,$1-)
    .comclose %a
    return %b
  return 0

Might be better to use alt-v o , using alt-o END UP UP UP only works if "Display" and "Other" are opened. if there closed u end up in "Mouse"

Alias ChangeLines {
if ($appactive) sendkeys % $+ v o % $+ l {HOME} $str({DOWN},$calc($1 - 1)) {ENTER}

Excellent idea tho!
