is there any way to change the colour of the mirc's visual style line via commandline? so I can change it via scripting? thanks in advance ^^

Well, it can be done by using /writeini but then you'd have to close mIRC and reopen.

Doesn't mIRC save all settings to the ini file on exit? If so then that wouldn't work because any changes he makes would be overwritten. Situations like this is where this would come in handy.

Not too sure, the method I said appears to be working but closing mIRC and reopening would be quite bothersome.

1. Options > Display > Options > Visual Styles > Border Color (Anything you like)
2. /writeini mirc.ini styles color 8388672
3. /run mirc or /exit then open again

I was just reading another loadini related post, it's a shame it's not implemented.

This would work _if_ the changes to mirc.ini are not overwritten.

/writeini mirc.ini styles color 8388672
/exit -nr

Isn't that what /saveini is for? I could be wrong as I've never used it. But the help file seems to indicate this.

That isn't the issue, it's loading the ini that is. There is no load feature for ini's so any changes can't be seen until you restart mIRC.

/flushini $mircini
though not recommended this has worked for me more then it hasn't.
