Timestamps in different windows.
 
Hello all,

I've been working on a script that captures channel output from a mud and redirects it to another window. While this portion works perfectly, I also wanted to give the messages timestamps. Here's the relevant code:

Code:
#win channels {%time( hh:mm:ss): }


Elsewhere in the script:

Code:
#CAPTURE channels


Now the problem with this is the #win adds a newline after the timestamp, giving output like this:

Quote:
16:52:52:
(Market): Alakardaiel says, "Got it, thank you."


Anyone know of a way to get it to format it more like this?:

Thanks

Stop using #CAPTURE. The trigger line would go straight into the #WINDOW command, but unlike #CAPTURE you have to do it manually like a #SUBSTITUTE.

Well, thing is, #capture keeps all of the color codes and such, while a manual relay through #win wipes all of that out...

And I'm not sure I'm following what you're suggesting, exactly...Could you explain a bit?

Here is what you do:

Click on the child window you want to have a timestamp to give it focus.
Open the settings editor to triggers.
Make the following trigger:

#TR {^} {#SUB {%time(t)}}

Don't forget to save the childwindow afterwards under the settings menu.

You could also always use %ansi and manually color the lines as you want them... It also makes it nice if you have a friendlist, you can color messages from people on your friendlist to a brighter color to show importance...
