I want to be able to drag and drop a character's name from local chat to an external program. Or ideally be able to programatically capture character names from local chat based on status into an external program.

Is there a way of doing this without breaching the EULA?

I can currently manually enter the names of characters I see in the local chat into an external program. It would be nice to be able to make it easier though.

Thank you.

Drag and drop functionality into the IGB has been removed. I had lots of ideas centred around dragging ingame objects into the IGB. Was removed around the time of apocrypha (when I started) as there is a post somewhere where I am asking this question.

All chat is saved into a series of text files on your local HD.

So you could potentially just go ahead and parse the text files.

Thank you for your suggestion. I have found where the chat logs are kept. What I was after though is the list of current people in local and their derived standings towards myself. I haven't been able to find anywhere where this is cached or logged.

Normally I'd suggest that you would have to use the Eve Api but I don't think the Api supports player<->player standings, just NPC standings. So I think you're kinda hosed.

So, you want something that watches local and alerts you when someone with bad standing enters ?

Somebody already did it. It created huge drama. Its an exploit. Using it will get you banned. And it doesn't work any more anyway. And this is why access to the local channel is now protected and not available to you.

mmm, Bacon.

Doesn't matter anyways. The chat files don't record people entering or leaving, just when they write something in the chat window. So if someone enters local without saying anything they'll never be listed.
