CrappyChatFix is a quick workaround to restore arrow key functionality in chat edit boxes.

Overview

Recently in patch 5.4, Blizzard modified the way edit boxes function in chat windows which removed a longstanding feature that addons took advantage of to allow users to press UP or DOWN to scroll through chat history without needing to hold ALT. CrappyChatFix is a proof of concept to show how the old behavior can be recreated.

Features

  • Scroll through chat history by using UP or DOWN without holding ALT
  • Your chat history persists through game sessions
    • Have to re-log really quickly? No problem! Everything you typed will still be there
  • History is saved separately for every [default] chat window, per character
  • Slash command support to clear everything you typed - /ccfclear

Notes

Blizzard may restore this functionality in an upcoming patch rendering this addon even less useful! With that said, CrappyChatFix is still in beta. The code was just spit-balled to show addon developers how a workaround could be added to their projects.

If you find any issues, please open a ticket or contact me in game on BNET @ Karnmak#1760.

Thanks, and hope you enjoy this awesome product brought to you from DRAENOR!
