Hi

wanted to check if anybody has found a workaround for this +10year old bug:

http://mushclient.com/forum/?id=6306

i still have it even with the latest wine + mushclient:

second question/request. im frustrated that i cannot increase the width of the infobar, any chance of having it implemented? i know we could use a miniwindow but these take up precious desktop real-estate. the infobar is a perfect place to display my captured ingame prompt.

thanks in advance.

Indeed. Though all symbol fonts work. If you choose Symbol or Wingdings or Webdings as your desired font, they will work. So it seems that the line causing the problem is
https://github.com/nickgammon/mushclient/blob/08382b6f1d6392e96450b63d1cd2e308560ed7cb/scripting/methods/methods_infobar.cpp#L95
as though Wine doesn't interpret the SYMBOL_CHARSET field the same way that Windows does. (Have you considered filing a bug report to WineHQ?)

A hacky workaround in the MUSHclient code could be to add an check around this line to use ASCII_CHARSET if running under Wine (https://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/2008-September/069387.html). But I don't know how that will affect the purpose of that line being there in the first place.

A workaround might be to create a new font that is the font you want but with the symbol flag active. Obviously that's going to be a pain.

You know you can turn the infobar off altogether? That frees up the space that you could then use to make a more powerful miniwindow do much the same thing.

C++ is alien territory for me... I may try it someday, if i ever figure out the docs and successfully compile mush from source.

Hi Nick, i did think of that as well, thanks. Would have to rework some code in my plugin. The infobars placement below the command window looked rather aesthetic to me though :)
