displaying player list in a status window or other window
 
trying to make a trig so i can see who is one without having to scroll back through the spam of combat
luckily i can short down the titles to just names via the command 'cwho +name'
which shows something like this


Name
-----------
bob
tim
steve
lux
(luke)
Lor
swag
-----------



the () around the name means they are invisible but have me added to their friends list.

how would a trigger like this work. thank you.

My method would be to use #C+ and #C-

IF and only IF your 'cwho +name' has a semi-unique header and closer.

so like the -------------------- after Name would trigger #C+ and the other --------------------- would trigger #C-

this captures all lines in-between and you can then send that captured text to your status window.

Additionally to prevent pre-mature firing of either trigger... create a class that houses the #C- portion and have it force close/disable itself after firing,
and have the trigger that does #C+ enable the closing class.

** DO NOT take this advice without testing or support from other better knowledged poeple... just offering my horrible method **

This should work, without needing to worry about enabling/disabling:

#TR {Name$-----------} {#EXECWIN Friends {#CLR};#C+ Friends}
#COND {-----------} {#C-}

Ahh, I missed a space from your example, try:

#TR {Name%s$-----------} {#EXECWIN Friends {#CLR};#C+ Friends}
#COND {-----------} {#C-}
