Halting "* Disconnected" message - 25/02/10 07:58 PM

Hi, I've been trying to hide that * Disconnected, but I can't seem to find a way. This script would work if it got triggered, but it doesn't:
Code:
on ^*:disconnect: {
  haltdef
}

Removing the ^ seems to fix the trigger problem, but of course, that means it can't be haltdef'ed anymore. Has anyone got a clue how to do it?

As far as I know the ^ event prefix is not supported for the on connect or disconnect event. According to the help file:
Quote:
The ^ event prefix currently works only on the following types of events: ACTION, BAN, CHAT, DEHELP, DEOP, DEVOICE, HELP, INVITE, JOIN, KICK, MODE, NICK, NOTICE, OP, OPEN, PART, PING, TEXT, UNBAN, USERMODE, VOICE, QUIT, SERV, SERVERMODE, SERVEROP, SNOTICE, TABCOMP, TOPIC, WALLOPS.

I know, but is there any other way I could do it?

You're doomed. I don't think you can hide or remove mirc's default reply of: * Disconnected

In fact, I've never seen people ask of getting rid of it. However, you can post this in the feature suggestions in the hope that Khaled will add an option to enable or disable it for showing.

Just as a note... hiding that leaves you in the same basic situation people were in before mIRC got an improved disconnection check... you wouldn't notice that you got disconnected until you tried typing something.

You ought to be able to fake it by checking if the last line in the buffer is "* disconnected" (or whatever the message says), then save the buffer, clear the buffer and reload all but the last line of the buffer.

While this doesn't stop it from displaying, it does effectively mean you won't see it. I suspect it may be a bit memory intensive if your buffer is quite long though.

Well, the point is that I want it to be displayed in another language since I'm making a translation script for mIRC. Someone already told me to just change the default text (although I don't have a clue where and how), but could I put a variable in it?

Well, his point was that you would be able to /echo your own message after refreshing the buffer window with all the buffer but the last line.

Ok, I'll give it a try... I'm not very familiar with buffer manipulation, but I'll do my best :p

Why not suggest translation tables for mIRC as an improvement? That's one thing that mIRC should have.

In any case (/echo or /*buf commands) you'll loose line colours and subtleties like indentation/hard wrapping. /filter has a -z switch, but won't be of use here either because -afaik- it won't take the status window as outfile.
