Formatting text

AdiIRC supports control codes for formatting text.

All control codes can be combined to format the same block.

Colorchar

Colors blocks of text.

Ascii character $chr(3)

Ctrl + K can be used in editbox to type this character.

The character can be followed by 1-2 digits that represent the color number.

By specifying a comma after the digits, you can add a 1-2 digit background color as well.

The default colors can be changed in Options -> Colors -> mIRC Colors.

A second color character can be used to stop the coloring and revert to default line color.

Example

; Prints the text 'Hello World' with color 4 which is red by default.
//echo -ag $chr(3) $+ 3 Hello world

Result: Hello World

; Prints the text 'Hello' with color 4 which is red by default and 'world' is the default line color.
//echo -ag $chr(3) $+ 3 Hello $+ $chr(3) $+ world

Result: Hello world


; Prints the text 'Hello World' with color 4 which is red by default and background color 12 which is blue by default.
//echo -ag $chr(3) $+ 3,12 Hello world

Result: Hello world

Boldchar

Makes the block use a bold font.

Ascii character $chr(2)

Ctrl + B can be used in editbox to type this character.

Example

//echo -ag $chr(2) this text is bold $chr(2) this text is not

Italicchar

Makes the block use a italic font.

Ascii character $chr(29)

Ctrl + I can be used in editbox to type this character.

Example

//echo -ag $chr(2) this text is italic $chr(29) this text is not

Underlinechar

Makes the block use a underline font.

Ascii character $chr(31)

Ctrl + U can be used in editbox to type this character.

Example

//echo -ag $chr(2) this text is underline $chr(31) this text is not

Stopchar

Stops all color and font formatting.

Ascii character $chr(15)

Ctrl + O can be used in editbox to type this character.

Example

//echo -ag $chr(3) $+ 4 $+ $chr(2) this text is bold and colored $chr(15) this text is not

Alternative colorchar

AdiIRC has an alterinative color character as of 1.9.7, this is AdiIRC only.

Unicode character $chr(61442)

Works the same as colorchar, except it takes a hexcolor format RRGGBB same as html colors.

A second color character can be used to stop the coloring and revert to default line color.

Example

; Prints the text 'Hello World' with hex color FF0000 which is red.
//echo -ag $chr(61442) $+ FF0000 Hello world

Result: Hello World

; Prints the text 'Hello' with with hex color FF0000 which is red and 'world' is the default line color.
//echo -ag $chr(61442) $+ FF0000 Hello $+ $chr(61442) $+ world

Result: Hello world

; Prints the text 'Hello World' with hex color FF0000 which is red and hex background color 0000CC which is bluet.
//echo -ag $chr(61442) $+ FF0000,0000CC Hello world

Result: Hello world
