Patch
Added in 1.0.0 / 1.13.2

Enables messages from a chat channel index for a chat window.

AddChatWindowChannel(windowId, channelName)

Arguments

windowId 
number - index of the chat window/frame (ascending from 1) to add the channel to.
channelName 
string - name of the chat channel to add to the frame.

Details

  • A single channel may be configured to display in multiple chat windows/frames.
  • Chat output architecture has changed since release; calling this function alone is no longer sufficient to add a channel to a particular frame in the default UI. Use ChatFrame_AddChannel(chatFrame, "channelName") instead, like so:
ChatFrame_AddChannel(ChatWindow1, "Trade"); -- DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME works well, too
