Notes Edit

  • Do not insecurely hook this function to add your own link types; hook ChatFrame_OnHyperlinkShow(frame, link, text, button) instead. Hooking this function insecurely will end up tainting Blizzard's combat log, which will taint UIParent's update routines and result in "action has been blocked" messages.
  • This function is affected by Shift and Ctrl keys, and depends on what is being clicked, according to the below table:
Ctrl Key Shift Key No modifier
Left Button Right Button Left Button Right Button Left Button Right Button
Player Link: - - /who player /who player Open Tell Dropdown menu
