Disable spell icons in chatframe

Disable spell icons in chatframe. Is it possible?. Cause when hiding your chat
they always leak through.

I was always curious, do these icons show with the default UI? I've never seen them, personally.

I am sure zork will then notice the thread soon and reply, hehe.

Weird, it seems in the code he did account for fading, so not too sure but, you can test things like:

/s {rt1}{rt2}{rt3}

Then you see icons, and then you hide it and see if they remain or disappear.

You should try this with the addon disabled, maybe some other addon interferes!

I use the default chat fading. Chat lines fade by itself over time.
Lines that get posted in just that moment are always displayed. So hiding them completly is nothing I do.

It's a glitch in the widget itself, sometimes icons fail to fade with the lines they're attached to. I've had this happen on rare occasion with no addons that modify the frame in any way.

Code:
local orig = DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME.AddMessage
function DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(msg, ...)
  if type(msg) == "string" then
    msg = msg:gsub("|T.+|t", "") -- should replace any icon tags and their content
  end
  return orig(self, ...)
end
Just an idea, you can make it into an addon using http://addon.ziuo.net/ if you like.

@Vladinator:

1. You didn't pass the message back to the real AddMessage method, so your hook completely breaks the chat frame.

2. If a message contains more than one icon, your pattern will delete the first and last icons, and everything in between, icon or otherwise. Using a - instead of a + will match the shortest possible string, instead of the longest.

3. Your code will only remove icons from the first chat frame.

Code:
local orig = {}
local function AddMessage(self, msg, ...)
	if type(msg) == "string" then
		msg = msg:gsub("|T.-|t", "")
	end
	return orig[self](self, msg, ...)
end
for i = 1, 10 do
	local f = _G["ChatFrame"..i]
	if f then
		orig[f] = f.AddMessage
		f.AddMessage = AddMessage
	end
end

I am sorry Phanx, I am tired and just posted it as an idea not ready-to-go code.

Your code would handle icons in all the chat frames so it is better yes, also you remembered to pass the msg parameter I forgot to pass on, hehe.
