Addons description


Features
  • Character/Account names : Because in your guild chat you won't see @JohnTheRipper but Bugnark gro-Moshul, pChat replace account names with Character Names. Customizable by guild, groupe, normal chat. PlayerName@AcountName and @AccountName/Playername available too.

  • Copy Text : You want to copy your chat ? Right click a chat message to put it to the chat editbox, and Ctrl+C to copy it to your clipboard then. Or open the copy dialog where you ca filter by chat channel and categories.
  • Search copy Text : You want to search your chat history and current chat? Open the copy dialog and click on the search button to show the search UI. Right clicking found chat entries can be copied to the chat editbox again (CTRL+C to copy it to your clipboard then). The chat channel and categories filters will change the chat search UI once you applied the filters.
  • Anti-Spam : Bored of LFG, WTB and other flooding players ? AntiSpam without any configuration

  • Resizing Chatbox : Got a Full HD screen or more ? So let's resize your chatbox up to fullscreen

  • Timestamps : For the ones who like precision, now all messages got their timestamps. Hightly customizable to show your desired format. 11:43 PM or 23:43:12, choose the one you like.

  • No more whisper missed : A whisper : A sound. Visual
    notification if you want it too.

  • [21:08] [pChat] [Ayantir]: Because chat should be easy to read : Timestamps, From Info and messages can be colorized as you like

  • Rename your Guilds Chans : Guild Tag or Officer one, each channel can be renamed

  • French / German translations : Russian & Spanish Translations too

  • Exit /g1, /say, /o1 : Click on chat, timestamp, channel name, and pChat will set your channel to the one you clicked on

  • Chat history : No more chat wiped when you'll reloadUI. Also include a restore history when you logout, get kicked or disconnect.

  • New Fonts embedded : 15 new fonts if you don't like the default one. And you can add the one you want too.

  • Darker chat window : If your eyes need a little help to improve your chat reading, and if you don't like background it can also be always transparent.
  • Define your own messages via /msg slash command : Define messages (long text) which you are able to quick post using a !<tag>, e.g. !ts + return key in the chat editbox: Will post the TeamSpeak server host/IP and login data information to chat. Often used with !ga to post guild advertisement texts.
  • Chat context menu (at names and/or messages) :
    -Setting: Show @AccountName/CharacterName (based on the chat channel and your pChat configuration for that chat channel! if you have not enabled @AccountName but only characterName it can be that @AccountName is missing!) in the context menu headline
    -Setting: Teleport to player (if in guild, group or on friends list)
    -Setting: Send mail to player
    -Setting:Ignore will ask before ignoring, with a Yes/No dialog (works in "Friends list" and "Report player" too as you try to ignore a player).

  • Added teleport slash commands :
    [color]
    /pchattpgl Port to group leader
    /tpgl Port to group leader
    /pchattppl Port to group leader

    /tpg <guildIndex 1 to 5ptional> <name> Port to guild's <guildIndex> member <1st found partial or full @displayName or character name>
    [/color]
  • Integrated addon "Chat Mentions" and other features : Enable sounds and visual mentioning of your character/account.
    Show the currently typed character count at the chat window header bar.
    Show the last time you have posted something to the zone chat at the chat window header bar.

Missing a feature? Have a look at the "Other chat addons" section below






Options menu to setup the addon : In Settings > Addon Settings > pChat ("Extensions" in French and "Erweiterungen" in German)



Known Issues :
-Do not use a keybind that uses Alt. For example, Alt+Shift+x, Alt+Ctrl+x, all keybinds without Alt are good.
-If you get an error message first read and apply the information from above, written below the headline
After updating pChat please be sure to check the subfolder "lib" is not there anymore. If it is still there: Delete it!


Any problems : Please let me know with a comment or a PM.
Please read the sticky comment (first comment) before posting a bug!


Important information:
Chat addons cannot work properly if the CrownStore is open! This is due to ZOs restrictions to protect the crown store against changes via addons and affects the chat as well.


Other chat addons
FCOChatTabBrain: Auto switch multiple chat tabs upon incoming messges, remember last chat channel at each tab, automatically change chat channels to last incoming one upon pressing <chat start> (RETURN) key, redirect whisper messages, play sound notifications on messages (keywords, friends, group, leaders, guilds), auto switch to group, and many more features.


If your chat addon needs to be compatible with pChat
The CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter only allows 1 function for each EVENT_CHAT_* callback function!
If you assign it new you'll overwrite exisitng ones!
So ALWAYS please check if any other chat addon is enabled, add these other known chat addons to your manifest txt ## OptionalDependsOn: list so the other addons load before your addon, and afterwards "post hook", or manually post hook, the other message formatter callback function -> See example for pChat below.
ATENTION: pChat uses the EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED callback to register the message formatters! If you want to post hook it you MUST do that after your own EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED callback! Using EVENT_ADD_ON_LOADED will make pChat overwrite your callback function again (and it's no good to use EVENT_ADD_ON_LOADED here as the chat is ready first after first called EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED)!

Example code for your EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED callback function, for the chat message formatter of EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL
Lua Code:
  1. local function myChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver(channelID, from, text, isCustomerService, fromDisplayName)
  2.         --your chat EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL callback function
  3.     end
  4.     --For the example OR - Wrapper function for the existing EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL callbackFunction    
  5.     local function myOnChatMessageChannelWrapper(messageText)
  6.        local messageTextNew = messageText
  7.        --Do whatever you need with the messageText passed in from original function
  8.        return messageTextNew
  9.     end
  10.  
  11.  
  12.     if pChat == nil then
  13.         --pChat is not loaded: Add your own handler to the CHAT_ROUTER
  14.         --I'd always check if any other chat addon is active though and maybe thus always add the code below, even if pChat is not loaded
  15.         --as it will keep exisitng callback functions of other addons or event add to the original vanilla chat formatter callback function
  16.         CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL, myChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver)
  17.     else
  18.         --pChat is loaded
  19.         --!!!ATTENTION!!!
  20.         --Do the following at EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED after pChat has set CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL, pChatChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver)
  21.         --Get all chat formatters. Table formatters will contain the different chat event entries, like EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL now
  22.         local formatters = CHAT_ROUTER:GetRegisteredMessageFormatters()
  23.         --Get the chat callback function for EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL of pChat
  24.         local originalpChatFormatter = formatters[EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL]
  25.         if originalpChatFormatter then
  26.  
  27.            --Either:
  28.             --Post Hook pChat's EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL callbackFunction by re-applying the own handler function
  29.             --which first calls pChat's function, and then your own code
  30.             CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL, function(...)
  31.                 local messageTextOfpChatHandler = originalpChatFormatter(...)
  32.                 --Do something with messageTextOfpChatHandler if you need to
  33.                 return myChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver(...)
  34.             end)
  35.  
  36.           --Or:
  37.           --As the callback function of EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL returns  Instead of a manual posthook your could also define your own "wrapper" function around the original function
  38.           CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL , function(...)
  39.                     return myOnChatMessageChannelWrapper(originalpChatFormatter (...))
  40.                 end)          
  41.  
  42.         end
  43.     end

-Fixed ChatMentions global leaking variable "news"
-Moved ChatMentions code to subtable pChat.ChatMentions

## v10.0.2.0 ## 2021-06-19
-Changed the SavedVariables to Server dependent ones: Means NA and EU server will save different settings and histories now.
Your current "non-server dependent" settings will be automatically copied to the server you login (NA, EU, PTS).
On-screen and chat messages, as well as LibDebugLogger messages (in the DebugLogViewer UI if you use this) will show you what was migrated and as it finished (2 automatic reloadUIs should happen during the migration process).

Attention: You are able to delete the non-server dependent (old) SavedVariables, to clean up the SV file s ize and increase the loading times, by using the chat slag command /pchatdeleteoldsv
BUT: Do NOT use this command before having logged in to ALL of the servers you play on! These non-server dependent settings are used as the copy base for the different servers. Copying SV from e.g. server NA to EU is not possible! So FIRST login to each server you play on, enable pChat and the dependencies, watch the screen for the migration messages and the reloaduis until it says finished.
After having migrated all servers you can use the slash command to delete the old SV file contents.

## v10.0.1.5 ##
-Changed backup reminder dialog to show gamepad dialog as well

## v10.0.1.4 ##
-Updated API to Blackwood
-Fixed settings menu to show the new CTRL+backspace settings proper: Chat options -> Chat Window -> Chat edit box
-Updated dependency versions
-Added a "Backup your SavedVariables" reminder. It will be shown once weekly or if the game's APIversion changes.
Please backup your SV at least once weekly as the pChat SV structures will change in the future and if migration will fail you will need a file to go back to.

You are able to disable the SV backup reminder in the settings at the Backup submenu.

## v10.0.1.3 ##
-Removed LibMainMenu
->You will need to install LibMainMenu-2.0 now!
-Added new setting to use CTRL+backspace to delete a whole word in the chat edit box (Thanks to Dolgubon)


## v10.0.1.2 ##
-Fixed copy dialog
-Changed copy dialog to disable filter checkboxes and labels for non filtered chat channels

## v10.0.1.1 ##
-Updated Russian translations -> Thanks to ivann339!
-Fixed chat copy dialog messing up the HUD/HUD_UI scenes
-Added keybind: "Copy whole chat (dialog)"
-Updated API version
-Updated needed library LibMainMenu to version 9

## v10.0.1.0 ##
Fixed
Copy dialog (still scene bug active)

Changed
-API version to Markarth
-Dependency versions needed: LibMainMenu v9, LibCustomMenu v694

Added
-Chat mentions by Coorbin, thanks for including this into pChat!


## v10.0.0.5 ##
Removed duplicate constants for the automated messages, hidden in pChat.lua file

## v10.0.0.4 ##
Fixed translations of the automated messages dialog, which you are bale to spawn via the /msg chat slash command

## v10.0.0.3 ##
After some users were not able to find the name format dropdown boxes for guilds and groups in the chat channel submenus, and thought the name format setting in the chat message submenu would apply to all chat messages:
Changed the settings so that the "name format" dropdown boxes for guild and group are also shown (duplicate) in the "message options"->"names in messages" submenu.

Hopefully the "bug reports" stop now as you will find them all at one spot :-)

## v10.0.0.2 ##
Fixed:
-Automated messages keybind and chat comamnd /msg will show the UI again

## v10.0.0.1 ##
Fixed:
-Timestamps and other formatting re-added for system mesages
-Timestamps and other formatting re-added for system mesages send by LibChatMessage (thanks sirinsidiator)
Attention: If you got the addon "DebugLogViewer" enabled the debug messages of addons will be ONLY shown in the DebugLogViewer UI/Quicklog UI, and NOT in the normal chat anymore! This is normal and an intended behaviour.
-Chat tab switch to default chat tab, after login

Added:
-Settings to enable/disable the chat format handlers (colors, timestamps, names, etc.).
You can find these settings as new submenu inside the "Message settings" submenu.
The following chat handlers can be enable/disabled:
  • System messages
  • Group left
  • Group type change
  • Friends list online status
  • Ignore list added
  • Ignore list removed
Standard setting value is: Enabled
You can use them to disable the chat formatters for e.g. online status and thus fix problems with other addons like "No Thank You".
You MUST reload the UI to change these settings so be sure to do so after changing the checkboxe values.

ATTENTION - NEW DEPENDENCY since 2022-04-10:
LibAddonMenu - Sound slider widget https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info...dget.html#info



Please backup your SavedVariables regularly. Logout of the game before doing this! pChat will update and support server dependent settings + histories!
The SavedVariables backup reminder will remind you after APIversion changes, and can be disabled in the Backup settings submenu.


!READ THIS FIRST PLEASE, BEFORE SENDING NEW BUGs!
Ignoring this post and links in this post here will result in non-answered comments or even deleted comments!

HowTo report bugs/error messages properly
[Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]

Be sure to read the "known bugs" and "incompatibility" list inside this sticky comment here first (further down!).
This might already fix your problems.

After this click the link "Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors" below and follow the information how to correctly report a bug here.

If you send in a comment about an error message or found bug, please always include the following information:
Read this first: [Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]
Especially the sections "lua error messages" and "How to report a lua error message/a bug to the developers"
Main points to check and report here:
  • Did you update ALL the needed dependencies and other addons?
  • Did you test with ONLY the pChat addon & needed dependencies enabled, and is it working then (most probably another addon interfers then)?
  • What other addons did you use as the error happened and please find out which of them is causing the error by disableing them oner after another (if only pChat enabled works fine)?
  • More points and hints can be found at the link "[Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]"


Known incompatiblity with other addons
Library "libChat2" was removed from this addon.
-> Please delete it, and all other "libChat" occurences (watch the lower l as first character! Do not delete LibChat* libraries like LibChatMessage!). Also LibGardfield counts as libChat and needs to be deinstalled!
-> from your AddOns and subfolders, as they are non-functional anymore since 2019 and cause errors and problems with many other chat related addons.



Known bugs:
  1. My chat's size and position somehow is weird.
    If you got the "Chat config sync" setting enabled then disable it and re enable it afterwards.
    !!!Make sure the chat is NOT minimized as you enable the Caht Config Sync and your currently logged in char is the one you want to copy the settings to other chars!!!
    So OPEN/MAXIMIZE the chat before enabling this setting.
  2. My chat colors, name and other formatting is not working.
    Logout!
    Remove old libraries from your other AddOns' folders and subfolderss where you are sure the libs are outdated or broken (e.g. LibMainMenu, libChat, libChat2, libChat3 -> libChat is broken so do not use or install it any longer!).
    Update all your libraries/dependencies (especially chat related ones like LibChatMessage).
    Read more about libraries/dependencies and installing/updating them here:
    https://www.esoui.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9149
    https://wiki.esoui.com/Libraries
  3. Whisper messages sometimes do not show the @accountName even though the settings are set to @accountName/charName or charName/@accountName.
    I cannot find a way to reproduce this constantly. Seems as if the ESO source code is not providing the @accountName constantly to the event as the whisperMessage was received. As it's only a visual bug I may work on this in the future, if I find a way to reproduce it 100%
  4. Chat Mentions: Chat messages highlight/colorized and add the ! icon at your own send messages, even if you have disabled to do so.




Beta version
https://github.com/Baertram/pChat/ar...at_guildId.zip
Attention: After opening the ZIP archive be sure to ONLY extract the subfolder "pChat" in the the folder "pChat-pChat_guildId". Do not extract the whole folders into your /live/AddOns directory!
Your live/AddOns dir must look like this afterwards:
Code:
/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns/pChat/pChat.txt

Other chat addons
FCOChatTabBrain: Auto switch multiple chat tabs upon incoming messges, remember last chat channel at each tab, automatically change chat channels to last incoming one upon pressing <chat start> (RETURN) key, redirect whisper messages, play sound notifications on messages (keywords, friends, group, leaders, guilds), auto switch to group, and many more features.


Cleaning non-server dependent SavedVariables
Attention: You are able to delete the non-server dependent (old) SavedVariables, to clean up the SV file size and decrease the loading times, by using the chat slash command /pchatdeleteoldsv
BUT: Do NOT use this command before having logged in to ALL of the servers you play on! These non-server dependent settings are used as the copy base for the different servers. Copying SV from e.g. server NA to EU is not possible! So FIRST login to each server you play on, enable pChat and the dependencies, watch the screen for the migration messages and the reloaduis until it says finished.
After having migrated all servers you can use the slash command to delete the old SV file contents.

yes i noticed this too
i came here to report this bug, but i see its just an option now need to be setuped, not like before

i like previous behavior more

P.S. so the option is hide chat in menus right

but now when i turn this option ON my chat do not restore back and remains hidden, when i already without any menus

this is frustrating behavior, i will roll back to old version

Well, thanks for your feedback, but what am I supposed to do here now?
Remove the real bugfix, enable the real bug again just to please the ones that are not reading AND/OR checking settings properly?
This would be a bad way just to make them stay in their comfort zone of never changing anything.

At the same time the others who waited for that bgfix for months would suffer again

Addons got settings menu so you check them, and enable/disable single settings according to "your needs". They are no deco
There never ever will be 1 setting that pleases all, as each individual player could, and will, like it different.

So please use the settings and enable/disable them according to your needs.
And I'll try to add another setting to make the addon behave "the same broken way" as it was with the exisitng bug, but his time you must enable it then explicitly, as it is a bug (first time adding a bug as a feature. So weird).

Yeah, I'm a fan of fixing the cause not the issue That's why I had asked for more details.
Thanks for the info.

For now I'll add some loop and == "" check, and remove the entries then from the tables, as a "workaroud fix",
or maybe add a "Rename me" tab there.

Not sure how this happened, maybe your SV got corrupted as your client crashed.
If you have more infos how this could have happened I'm glad if you tell me so we can prevent it to happen again (if possible).
All toons had this blank chat tab 2.

I have many crashes (sometimes the hard crash with the crash reporting app showing, sometimes game errors [i.e. connection lost, connection timed out, etc], sometimes just infinite hang on load screens, etc). I have even seen the main `UserSettings.txt` file completely wiped out (file exists, but no content at all).

I have run pChat for several years, with some long gaps of non-gameplay in between. This save variable file has existed the whole time.

To me, something happened to cause the name to be lost. I am not sure myself.

I think, for protection against this, if pChat sees a blank name, maybe it can substitute something like `(blank N)` where N is an integer (1, 2, 3, etc). Then at least the tab could have a name and maybe could be loaded and not cause the error.

If you have more infos how this could have happened I'm glad if you tell me so we can prevent it to happen again (if possible).

In my case, I have 6 tabs created. When I go into the settings, I get the error message below and the 'Chat Tab Settings' section is empty.

I added some debugging to the function `CreateWidgetsInPanel` in the file `AddOns/LibAddonMenu-2.0/LibAddonMenu-2.0.lua`, which revealed to me that the call to `CreateAndAnchorWidget` was failing because `widgetData` was nil. That function (`CreateWidgetsInPanel`) was iterating over a series of indexes in order (`for i=startIndex,endIndex do`).

When inspecting the contents of `pChat.tabIndices` and `pChat.tabNames`, I discovered that element #2 was skipped... it did not exist. So the keys of both tables were: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

I looked in the saved variables file (`SavedVariables/pChat.lua`) and discovered all toons had a tab created for element 2, but with an empty name (``).

I logged out, modified this file to set a placeholder name in all occurrences of `["name"] = "",`, and logged back in. pChat now showed 7 tabs, including this previously missing one. I used the normal 'right click the tab, chose Remove Tab option, and confirm' operation to remove this tab. I logged off and back on again. The Chat Tab Settings section is now populating and I am now able to set the Default tab as expected.

I hope this helps others.

Hi, could you please describe with more detail what is not working, where?
You mean at the pChat settings you cannot open the submenu "Chat Tab Settings"?

->Please disable ALL other addons before testing this, to see if any other addon interferes! Also disable not needed libraries.
If it works then you need to find out which other addon is the culprit please


Any error message showing as you try to open the submenu?
If so, please click the checkbox to show all info and then copy & paste the whole error message here for me!
You can use CTRL+a to select all and CTRL+c to copy it to your clipboard, then CTRL+v here to paste it.


Or does it simply do nothing when you click the v icon to open the submenu?
Does the icon change to ^ then?
I've disabled all other addons (including unneeded dependencies) and still get the same result. When I click on the v icon next to "CHAT TAB SETTING", the icon does change to ^. However, it does not open actual sub-menu. I hope that makes sense. The other menus expand fine.

I did receive an error in the system chat tab, but I'm unsure if this related. Please see below.

[12:01] [LAM2] Could not create dropdown 'Default tab' of pChatOptions.
Yeah it is related. If any error happens it could be that further "later" code also is not executed.
I need to check what is happending there for you as teh default tba is the dropdown where you choose the default chat tab that should be activated.

Could you please logout, go to the folder live/SavedVariables and copy teh file pChat.lua (SavedVariables containign your settings).
In that file replace all occurence of your @accountName with e.g. @anonymous if you do not want to tell me your account name.
Then send me the file to [email protected] and tell me in that email the server and the cahracter name where that pChat settings error happens please,
together with these chat tab question answeres please:

>What chat tabs does your chat got? How many and their names please.
>Did you recently change the chat tabs before the error happens?
>What was your default tab set to in the settings?


I can have a look then why this is happending.
But usually if youdo the following it should solve such issues:
Logout
Rename the file live/SavedVariables/pChat.lua to pChat.lua_backup
Your ingame settings reset to defaults then.
Login and it should be solved. If not then somethign is wrong with your chat "tabs" in total, raising this LAM error
I just sent an email. Unfortunately, I forgot to put a subject. I'm not sure there will be much data located in the pchat.lua. But I did attach it and answer your questions. I also did the update, but the issue still persists.

Edit: I just deleted all my chat tabs except one and now I'm able to expand that menu. So I guess my tabs were causing the issue. I appreciate your help. I'll let you know if I see anything else.

Unfortnately ZOs default chat handler for pvp kill feed uses a totally local variable g_pvpKillFeedDeathRecurrenceTracker which I cannot access by any way, and thus I cannot overwrite the chat handler and insert the pChat formatting, like timestamps, properly, as I need access to that object to use some functions of it to get the true/false returns to control the chat texts correctly.

So for now until ZOs provides access to that local some day: I can't sorry, unless someone finds a way to get access to the proper data return values of that local object, as chat messages come in.

Everyone wants something special... 1st one says "make it minimize everywhere", 2nd one wants to have it always open and now the 3rd wants to have it partially minimize
Did you try to use minimize in menus and maximize after menus settings? And this is not enough? You really want the chat to stay open in inventory but close at CPs?

Try to use FCOChatTabBrain, it will auto open your chat (if minimized and setting to auto maximize again is enabled) as messages come in, and you were inactive in the chat. It also supports other nice features so you can simply press return key and type in teh correct chat channel to directly answer, based on the chat tab used (e.g chat tab for guilds, incoming mesasge at guild 3, return key, write in guild 3 chat channel).

For now I'm not going to add a 3rd option to "Partially minimize" the chat menus as this simply is too much.
You either need to arrange with a minimized chat or maximized, and need to manually minimize it then. Everything else would be too much work to make it compatible as there is no "simple way" to keep both versions possible at the same time (due to ZOs code).

-"Restore chat after exiting menus"
This is what I meant to say yes, I somehow didn't see this in the add-on menu, sorry I added a lot of mods recently and guess I got overwhelmed.

My issue of chat not minimizing in menus is fixable by default with your option set in the mod.
