OmnomIRC Focus
« on: August 14, 2010, 01:59:50 am »
Would it be possible to make the text entry box in OmnomIRC not grab focus as soon as the page is loaded? I often visit on a laptop with no mouse, and the auto-focusing makes it hard to scroll down using the arrow keys.

Mhmm, I think this is a good idea. You should PM Tribal about it (or ask Fidchell/Tribal on IRC), since he is the new OmnomIRC maintainer. It was originally added because OmnomIRC reloaded the entire page every 5 second before, making it extremly annoying to use. Now it uses Ajax, so it shouldn't require focusing anymore.

I myself almost accidentally typed my admin password in OmnomIRC once, because to access the admin CP, you get asked for your password every 10 minutes or so, and with OmnomIRC grabbing the focus instead of letting it on the password field, it can be rather bad...
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Ah that is actually quite nice. I use the arrow keys when browsing on my lappy as well. Thank you! :)

Cool. That used to be a bit of an issue for me, too.
Good job! :)

If I may suggested another addition to the IRC, it would be handy to have more then one-line of text. It's not a must but it would be nice.
Good fix, helps me out too!

Hmm, I don't see why multi-line input would be a problem... I'll mess around with it and see what I can do.

Thanks for the fix Tribal!

I always found it annoying to have to click to focus on the window!

Here's an update on the multi-line omnomIRC I wanted to get some input on, it seems that it wouldn't be to hard to implement, and the size of the box can be dynamically resized(no smaller than the default width/hight) but... hitting return(enter) would give you a newline instead of submitting.

Now that I've messed with it a bit, I'm kinda wondering if you meant that the input would wrap if it hit the end instead of just continuing? I think that could probably be a solution to this.

If you add multiline support, you should add a flood control to OmnomIRC that prevents people from using multiline support more than twice a minute. It will prevent spam.

Agreed.
