Q. What is a popup ?
A. It's a shortcut command for mIRC that is activated by your mouse.
Q. How do I use one ?
A. Select a persons "nick" from the right hand column of the channel window you are in by clicking ONCE with your left mouse button. Once the nick is highlighted depress the right mouse button and scroll to the word slap and then release the mouse button. ........ This should now appear in the channel window : * Yourname slap's NICK around a bit with a large trout.
Q. How do I make my own ?
A. You need to open your popups area in mIRC. You do this by either pressing alt+p or"Click" TOOLS at the top LEFT hand corner of your mIRC -> Scripts editor -> Popups Tab
Select VIEW from the editor menu bar of the window that opens
Scroll to NICKNAME LIST and then release the mouse button again.
In the mIRC Editor box scroll down past all the stuff that is in there already and we are going to make a new piece of code that will produce a new popup
copy and paste this into a new line
Poke:/me pokes $$1 in the eye..Thats for staring at $me
"Poke" is the name you have given your popup and is what you will see with your right mouse button. /me makes your popup an "action popup. The $$1 will insert the nickname of the person you have highlighted and the $me will insert your nickname into the popup.
Once you have done that , "click" OK and return to the channel and try your new popup.
The result should look like this :- YOURNAME pokes NICK in the eye..Thats for staring at YOURNAME.
