iChat Icon

These iChat 4 pages are coloured Gray and have the iChat 4 icon on them that was in use at the time, so you know where you are. The icon differs little from the Version 3 version.


iChat 4 Pictures Buddy List

You are In:- iChat >> Versions >> iChat 4 >> iChat 4 Pictures Index >> iChat 4 Buddy List Index >> Name
1[2] 02 Name Nov 2008

 New. This Picture is to show you two things.

 Changed. First the Buddy List Name or what is in fact the title of the Window will display the Screen Name if you have more than one AIM Buddy List or more then one Jabber List. In Previous versions you could have three Buddy List showing and Logged in. An AIM one (Titled "Buddy List"), a Jabber one ("Jabber LIst") and the Bonjour one ("Bonjour List")

They will all display the same Buddy picture that you set. The Buddy Lists that can Log into AIM can be set to Invisible which means you can seem to be Off Line to your Buddies but you can still call them. The Jabber List(s) and the Bonjour one can not do this.

They also will display the same Status Message unless then ones that Login to AIM are set to Invisible then that will show instead for that Buddy List.

 Changed. The second thing is the bit that is active in the picture. The result is the same as in previous iChat versions in swapping between Real Name (as per Address Book My Card entry) and the Screen Name (Handle) but now it is via this drop down choice rather than toggling between the two.
