  1. Hi, does anyone know how I can take the message that a player is typing in the chat but without having it sent?
  2. You can't.
    Before the message is sent, no information will be passed to the server, so there is no way of achieving what you want to do

  3. Ah ok.. But is it possible to take the message but without showing it to the other players?
  4. That is indeed possible (obviously only after the player has sent the message).
    You would have to listen to the PlayerChatEvent. There you can get the message and do whatever you want to do with it, especially sending it only to you and not other players.

    with AsyncPlayerChatEvent you can cancel the event and modify the recipiants

  6. If player sends a message, you can make it so nobody sees it but you can of course take it

  7. Thanks so much.

    Oh, you're one of those:
    Code (Java):

                if (PlayerChatEvent.getHandlerList().getRegisteredListeners().length != 0) {
                    // Evil plugins still listening to deprecated event
    (NMS source, PlayerConnection class)
