#8596 closed defect (fixed)

Inconsistent chat window titles

Reported by: djmori Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium 1.2 Component: Adium UI
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: Chat Window Title Cc:
Patch Status:


When a single chat is oppened, the window title displays the name of the contact. But when a multiple tabs are oppened, the title displays "chat - buddyname".

This has terrible effects on applescripts that grab the window title.

I noticed this once before as well... we may as well drop the Chat - ? Was there a specific reason for that being there? Perhaps to differentiate between group chats? Even for that function now it says: "Chat - MSN Chat" so the beginning "Chat -" does indeed seem unnecessary.

The point was to differentiate "This window is just for Bob" versus "This is a chat window with various tabs, and Bob is the active chat". This does seem pretty unnecessary and inconsistent at this point.

(An Applescript dealing with chats should probably use functions related to the current chat rather than scrubbing the window for information).

(In [21934]) Only use a name for a chat window if we are organizing by tabs by groups; for the default configuration, just show the contact's/group chat's name as the window title.

Also, fixed a flicker through (null) for the window title when closing a chat window.

Fixes #8596
