Using AdiIRC 2.8 x64 in win10.

Currently, when AdiIRC is already open,
when you click to open a server link (e.g. irc://chat.freenode.net ) from inside a browser, (e.g. Firefox)
then AdiIRC opens the link in the background, i.e. remains unfocused.

My suggestion is AdiIRC to become the active window (I haven't found any relevant entry in File|Options).

PS. I love AdiIRC, it's truly the most feature-rich IRC client ever!
Thanks for your great work!

It would be nice to have a "scrollback warning" appear if you start typing in a channel and you don't realise you're scrolled up in the chat history

Using latest AdiIRC 3.2 beta x64 in win10.

I'd like to make one more suggestion, please:

Currently for all Monitor Panels
the bottom row, i.e. the latest entry row, becomes the highlighted one by default, and there's no way to deselect it: you may only switch the highlighting to another row.
Also pressing Tab while focusing on such a row doesn't unhighlight it.

I find this quite confusing.

My suggestion is not to be highlighted by default,
and if it's highlighted, to be able to unhighlight it by clicking on the white empty area of the panel.

Here is a screenshot and with the arrow it's an example of where to click to unhighlight it:

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Per Amundsen 10 months ago

Why do you want to deselect it? It's pretty standard to always have a item selected in a datagrid.

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Kostas K 10 months ago

Because the highlighting distracts me: it makes me focus only on the highlighting row, visually "ignoring" the rest of the rows, while I'd like to view the list as a whole, without focusing to any particular row.

I think it's because of the blue background:
the blue background color stands out from the rest white background that is used almost entirely in the rest AdiIRC interface (using default theme, I mean the Treebar, Messages, Nicklist that take the most part of the screen).

If the highlighting in the Monitor Panels was only a subtly-colored dotted outline of the row, i.e. keeping the rows background white and the text black, I believe it wouldn't confuse me at all.
And, if I was able to also unhighlight it, it would be ideal.

I see, you can change all the Monitor Panels colors including the highlight colors in Options -> Colors -> Monitor Panels.

I'll keep it in mind however.

Thank you for the quick response and for being open to suggestions! :)

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Per Amundsen 9 months ago

A few things I noticed, if you select the first row instead of the last row, you will not be able to see the selection while scrolled down, you can also deselect using CTRL + click.

I will remove the default highlight in next beta.

Thank you so much!

Greetings.

There's one suggestion I'd like to make ever since you added the option to use Windows Toast Notifications instead of Tips [3.3 Beta Build (2018/10/01]:

could you please consider providing Windows Toast Notifications in Options|Highlights too?
What I have in mind is adding a 3rd option in: Options|Highlights|'Add' dialog, (i.e. below flash/tip message), to use Toast Notifications for the matching message,
but I guess you could add more generic options about this feature in the main Options|Highlights page, as well.

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Per Amundsen 21 days ago

The "Use Windows Toasts Notifications" option applies to highlight tips as well, is that not the case for you?

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Kostas K 21 days ago

Yes, it works great. I didn't realize it because there isn't any mention in Option|Highlights.
Thanks for responding and sorry for not noticing it works fine already!

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Kostas K 9 days ago

I'd like to make a suggestion regarding exiting AdiIRC when you have enabled Tips:

I have enabled in Options|Tips both 'Enable tips' and 'Use Windows Toast Notifications' as well as: the (other tips) 'Connect' checkbox.
So currently, whenever I exit AdiIRC (File|Exit), I get a toast notification that "You have disconnected from the x network".

What about changing this behavior so that the program exits immediately, without showing that last toast notification? What do you think?

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Per Amundsen 6 days ago

Good catch, all notifications/tips should be ignored during exit, I'll fix that.

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Kostas K 3 days ago

Thank you for the quick response.
I've just tried the new beta, but unfortunately I still get the "You have disconnected from the x network" toast notification on program exit.

RE: Feature suggestions - Added by Per Amundsen 3 days ago

Right, I double checked, it only fixed it for restart not for exit, I fixed that for next beta, thanks.
