Xchat Tip: Binding actions to mouse clicks

Xchat2 L Chat Program for windows and linux

Here is a tip for XChat IRC client users. Wouldn't it be fun to just click a user's nick in a IRC channel and your IRC client automatically sends a "hi" message to that nick right away ;p .

Well, don't worry I won't suggest you to use any scripts for this. We can just bind this action to the mouse double click in XChat by changing the Action Upon Double Click execute command to "MSG %s hi %s" (%s variable holds the nick name string) under Xchat Settings Preferences > Interface > User List. Next time you start up Xchat,just click a nick to say hi!!.
