Info bar - programmable information bar

This is an additional "information bar" initially created above the normal MUSHclient status line. It uses the full screen width, and can be used to show information relevant to what you are doing (eg. current hit points).

The info bar has the following characteristics:


  • Shared between all worlds
  • Can only be updated from scripting
  • Can have multiple fonts, multiple colours, multiple font sizes and styles
  • Can be undocked and moved
  • Can be hidden or shown (from a script, or from the View menu)


To access the info bar from scripting you can use the script routines described below.

Using world.Info to add text to the info bar does not replace existing content. The intention is that you initially use "InfoClear" to remove earlier content, then InfoFont and InfoColour to set up the info bar for the correct font and colour for the *next* piece of text. Then use world.Info to write text in the new font and colour.
