[Script] Show nicks in emote/action messages to the right of the nick column

Added by Per Amundsen over 1 year ago

2019/05/16 Fixed the incoming action should trigger the "new message" color.

; Listen for incoming ACTION/me messages.
on ^*:ACTION:*:*:{

  ; Print our own custom message format.
  echo $color(action) -tbflm $target $prefixemote(#, $nick) $1-

  ; Halt the original message
  halt
}

; override the /me alias with our own.
alias me {

  ; Send the message using the built-in /me command.
  .!me $1-

  ; Print our own custom message format.
  echo $color(action) -tbf $target $prefixemote(#, $me) $1-
}

This does exactly what I want it to! However....it turns actions received from others into a system notice instead of an action, so it doesn't color the channel correctly or activate any privmsg notifications. If I could fix it myself I would, but I don't know the scripting that well yet. Any chance you can help me out?

You are right, I updated the script with a fix, adding "-m" to the parameters, thanks.

I actually did just find another issue. If highlight is kicked off by an emote, the line does not get the highlight color, only the action color. Is there a way to account for this?

That does complicate things a little, you can try this:

on ^*:ACTION:*:*:{
  var %color = $color(action)

  if ($highlight($1-)) {
    %color = $highlight($replace($v1, $ $+ me, $me)).color
  }

  echo %color -tbflm $target $prefixemote(#, $nick) $1-
  halt
}

How does this determine the color? It's highlighting in red, not the color I have set for highlighting. I tried figuring it out myself, but there are a lot of identifiers in that code. :P

PS - Thanks for the all the help on this.

It uses the $highlight(text) to check if the current text contains a highlight word, then it looks up the word in $highlight(word) and gets the associated color using the .color property for $highlight(word), it should return the color set for "$me" in Options -> Highlights. You can click the "Edit" button there to verify.

Worst case scenario, you can just set the color yourself using %color = N, where N is a number between 0 and 98, see Extra Colors for more about that.

So, I've found another issue that I didn't notice until I started to plug in some aliases. I use a lot of aliases that use the /me command, but the script reads the input in the editbox before the alias is parsed. It sees it as != /me, and so doesn't format the output correctly. I've been looking over the scripting wiki some more, but it's all a little overwhelming. Is there a way to account for this?

Totally forgot about that. The solution is to override the /me alias and roll your own, you can decide yourself whether to use an alias or a script do that.

Remove the entire "on :INPUT::{" section then do this in the alias editor:

/me {
  .!me $1-
  echo $color(action) -tbf $target $prefixemote(#, $me) $1-
}

Or this in the script editor:

alias me {
  .!me $1-
  echo $color(action) -tbf $target $prefixemote(#, $me) $1-
}

/me should then do what you want when called from anywhere, will update the original script as well.

Tested and working properly, with all highlights, aliases, etc. You're a rockstar!
