Make a note in the output window from text with ANSI colour codes imbedded


void AnsiNote(BSTR Text);

View list of data type meanings


Sends "Text" to the output window, changing colour, bold, underline etc. if it gets ANSI sequences in the text. ANSI sequences are things like ESC [ 30 m. You can use the ANSI function to set them up.

AnsiNote saves the current world note colour, and restores it afterwards, so that any colour changes do not persist to subsequent note lines.

The ANSI sequences defined in the ANSI function will be recognised.

WARNING: Bold italic, and underlined styles will only be visible if the appropriate configurations are enabled in the world Appearance: Output configuration. Otherwise they will be ignored (the same as for text arriving from the MUD).

Available in MUSHclient version 3.37 onwards.

VBscript example

AnsiNote ANSI (32) & ANSI (1) & ANSI (43) & _
          "This is bold green text on a yellow background"

Jscript example

AnsiNote (ANSI (32) + ANSI (1) + ANSI (43) + 
         "This is bold green text on a yellow background");

PerlScript example

Python example
