Hides the chatframe in combat. Shows it again on mouseover.
Default is a 0.5 second fade.
Does not support multiple chatframes.
This add-on is AMAZING. I didn't think something like this was possible, so I spent the better part of an hour looking for a cvar or console command to simply auto-fade the chat box, but this is literally everything I wanted. Now I can actually have a better field of vision during an encounter, automatically, and not have to contend with a bunch of useless text and buttons filling up my precious screen space. Thanks so much!
In party or raid, where you have your chat box open, it works fine, but out in the world soloing quests I have the chat box toggled off using a macro, and then it shows after combat and I have to toggle it off every time, any suggestions? thanks a lot
How can I access the settings?
Edit: I want to set it so the chat stays hidden, unless is mouse over it, or something along those lines.
Working splendidly, thank you
Could you tell me how to always hide, not just combat, including out of combat and the rest.
Thank you very much!
Do you still want to show it on mouseover?
Works even with 3rd party chat addons, thanks mate!
Thank you for the positive feedback. I try my best.
Lovely addon! Would it be possible to have the frame fade in on mouseover? So chat can be read in combat if needed.
Yes, it is possible. I am just a bit short on time right now.
Finally it is done. Let me know how it works.
Working as intended :D
Before and during combat screenshots chief. Thanks for the follow up. This is using your latest addition btw.
What happens when you disable your other addons? Maybe another problem with prat.
Icons do show up from trade, target markers, when in combat. In this instance, I was fighting a NPC that popped up while trying to herb in my garrison. If you need screen shots - let me know.
Maybe screenshots could help. Im not able reproducebug this bug. For me all icons are correctly hidden
Looks like the changes you made to fix the social bar fixed the icons sir.
Fantastic addon, and thanks for updating it.
I don't know why, but I missed the updated notification with you making the fix to the social tab update.
Also icons used in chat show up despite the chat window being hidden.
Under what circumstances do you still see icons? Tested with bigwigs test mode and the default raidmarkers. They didn't show up in the hidden chat.
