Optional Dependency

Chat Service Plugin has a soft dependency on Radial UI plugin. If the deselect option is turned on in the settings then Radial UI plugin is required. If the deselect option is turned off then Radial UI plugin is not required.


Reference this dependency plugin in the parent plugin and then use the following syntax to add a chat service:

chatMessgeServiceHandlers.Add(serviceKey, handler)

Where the service key is a string that must appear at the beginning of the chat message in order to trip the corresponding handler.

Where hander is a function that takes in two string, the message content and the sender, and a source which is a ChatSource enumeration indicating if the source if a GM message, player message or creature message. The hanlder returns a string, the modified message or null. Returning null prevents the message from being displayed.

An example of adding a inline handler for "/w" function would be:

chatMessgeServiceHandlers.Add("/w ", (chatMessage, sender, source)=> { Debug.Log(sender+" whispered "+chatMessage); });```

### Usage programatically

You can also use this function for sending messages to other clients without having the request triggered
by the user from the chat. This can be done by using the core TS function:

``ChatManager.SendChatMessage(message, sender)``

Where *message* is the content to be sent and should include the handling prefix.
Where *sender* is the NGuid of either a creature mini (CreatureId) or player (PlayerId).

For example, to use the above hander for "/w" assuming it is a whisper message to the GM:

``ChatManager.SendChatMessage("/w I pickpocket the person I am speaking to", LocalPlayer.Id.Value)``

### Custom Headers

Messages whose content contains text in square brackets is treated as custom header messages. The message
must start with an opening square bracket, have some text, have an ending square bracket, and finally have
some content. Such messages will replace the usual character or player name in the chat message header with
the contents between the square brackets and limit the message content to the contents after the ending
square. For example:

[Bilbo]Is it time to eat yet?

Would create a chat message whose header would be "Bilbo" and message content would be "Is it time to eat yet?"
regardless of who sent the message.
