Scrolling Titlebar

By RusselB on Dec 13, 2006

This keeps a constant display in your title bar of the active channel and it's modes, as well as a count of ops, half-ops, voiced and regular users. The balance of the titlebar displays the channel topic in a scrolled (aka marquee) style.
If the active item is not a channel, then your current nick is displayed in the titlebar.

Just load the script into your remotes and have it run the load/start section.

Note, some people have reported that it takes a bit for the scrolling to start. Also, this was designed to work with tiled windows, not windows that are maximized. The titlebar sometimes looks partially duplicated when working with maximized windows.
I will try to figure out a way around this situation and post an update at that time.

Display now uses the information returned via $prefix
This method does take a little bit longer, but most people shouldn't notice the difference (I timed it using $ticks on a channel with 100 nicks, and it only took 2 milliseconds longer).

Added network and nick display, as well as a count-up for the time used in a particular pm window. Display also shows for Status Windows, however, display is inaccurate.

Updated code to show correct time for pm windows if the window was opened before the script started, and shows correct timing using a modified $duration, rather than the old $duration(3), as a pm window that was open for 25 hours now shows as 1 day 1:00:00 not 25:00:00

does it already being updated?

SnoooP   -  Jul 27, 2010

Ok, look forward to those changes :)

I'm working (slowly, but surely) on a major re-write of this code, and that re-write contains some major changes. Such as the ability to pick what information is displayed and where. In the meantime, you are more than welcome to change the code to meet your display preferences. Just note that I do not guarantee the script to work correctly if you make any changes to it.

This is just my opinion but I would prefer the ~ & @ % + to appear on the right hand side of the topic, rather than the left. Also I would prefer something other than a , to be used to seperate the chan op modes to make it clearer.

ok, will do.

RusselB   -  Jun 27, 2010

Working on the modifications requested and some others.
This will take longer than normal, as I've recently been advised to start using reading glasses, and I'm not used to them, so my eyes tire more quickly.
Watch here for updates, and, hopefully they won't take too long.

i think it's 17" inch wide

Adding that additional information could, depending on the size of your screen, make the number of characters in the scroll very small, or possibly even non-existent from a visual aspect. Please reply with your screen size (ie;9", 10", 15", etc.) so that I can make the adjustments and check them on the same size of screen (or close).

Script amended to include your suggestion, SpotRedDog. Thanks.

I know this seems stupid but is there anyway you can add a option to turn it off, or rather whats the number to shut it off.
