About Popups

With this button you edit your Popup.ini file. (Popups are the menus that appear when you right-click with your mouse).
Notice that it is made of five parts:-
Popup window

Status:- These are the popups that appear when you right-click in your Status Window.

Channel:- These are the popups that appear when you right-click on any Channel window. You can copy here, from the Status popup, whatever popup you think is useful for you, when you are in a channel.

Query/Chat Window:- These are the popups that appear when you right-click on your Query or Chat window.

Nickname List:- These are the popups that appear when you right-click on your Channel names List, that is the names of the people in a channel that you see at the right side of your Channel window.

Menubar:- These are the popups that appear when you click Other on your mIRC Bar.

Note:- You can hide the menubar if you press option and uncheck [Show menubar]


Examples

Suppose you frequently ask for help, instead of typing each time the same question you can put this in your popup.ini under Main Window:-

Help:/say I need help, can anybody help me please?

Don't forget to [Save] your popup.ini.
Next time when you right-click on your main window, highlight Help and left click it, mIRC will ask the question for you!!. Great isn't it.

Did you notice the similarity between aliases and popups, in fact popup works exactly like aliases. With aliases you have to remember what stands for what with popups you can see . You can even call an alias from a popup menu. Remember what we did in the aliases section. We put this in our aliases.ini.

/h /say Hi everybody, What's up? Did I miss anything?

So if you put in your popup.ini under Main Window the following:-

Say hello:/h

What do you thing it will happen when you right-click on your main window, Highlight Say hello and left click it.


Organise your Popups

You will soon notice that after a couple of new popups, your screen would quickly get cluttered every time you right-click. To solve that problem organise your popups into Hierarchical menus . Try entering all of the following popups:

Help me
.Help:/say I need help, can anybody help me please?
.Thanks:/say Thanks for your help.

Notice the dots before Help and Thanks. With the dots we're specifying that these commands should show under Help me.

Or try the following

mIRC
.Compliment
..Great:/say mIRC is great.
..Best:/say I think mIRC is the best.
.About mIRC
..Shareware:/me informs everybody that mIRC is shareware
..Register:/say Please register your mIRC

Notice the dots again. One dot means that Compliment and About mIRC are under mIRC and the ones with two dots are under the ones with one dot and so on it goes.
You can go up to four level deep.

NOTE:- You can see how your popup will look like by clicking the Popup, next to view.
