Timestamps on child windows
 
The reason people use GAG and CAP is to reduce main window clutter. However, it is not possible in

Options->Preferences->Session->Scrollback

to set a timestamp on anything other than the 'session' window. The documentation states nothing but, other than using a #WIN or #EXECWIN command there is no other choice. However, this then doubles the number of lines each time a #CAP is used.

One could try #WIN %line() but then there is no guarantee that the only line you want is sent. It all depends on latency.

Any fancy ideas from the IT crowd?

You want to cap content, and timestamp it, gag it from main session and output to a win?

If I read that correctly...

How I achieve this.
Code:
<trigger priority="14850" regex="true" id="22">
  <pattern>^(?:>\s|)(You tell \w+|\w+(?   <value>:Chat:#SAYPROMPT {%cr%ansi(bold,blue)"["%time(hh:mm)"] "%ansi(bold,magenta)"["%1"]: "%ansi(bold,grey)%2}
#GAG</value>
  <trigger type="Loop Pattern" regex="true" prompt="true">
    <pattern>^ +(?:LT\:)?(.*)$$</pattern>
    <value>:Chat:#SAYPROMPT {%ansi(bold,grey)" "%1}
#GAG</value>
  </trigger>
</trigger>

You can add timestamps to any window, just click on the window in question before opening prefs.

Thanks. You can also do it even if that dialog is in focus. Good to know.

Supplementary question:

a child window gets a connection - login attempted. Main window (session) already connected so I don't want to re-connect.

Is this also a behaviour that can be turned off?
