Enters text on DAOC’s command line, and allows cursor movement and backspacing. For normal purposes use Slash instead.


SlashEx ( text )


Text gets entered on the command line. It can contain optional control sequences for cursor movement and backspacing.


Here’s a hotkey that was shown to me by Alnmike. I thought his idea was so clever that I decided to add the feature to Mojo so I could try it out.

When you press the following hotkey, DAOC targets the last person who sent you a tell. This could be useful, for example, when people want you to buff them.

Hotkey ( F7 )
   Key ( R )
   SlashEx ( "@B@H@R@R@R@R@B@B@B@Btar" )

Here’s a simpler example that isn’t useful but shows more clearly how the feature works.

Hotkey ( F8 )
   SlashEx ( "/say Mojo sucks@B@B@B@B@B rocks!" )


For normal purposes, use Slash instead of this command.

SlashEx is exactly like Slash except that it allows you to include control sequences in the text string to perform cursor movement and backspacing. The following control sequences are allowed:

Control sequence
Shift Home
Shift End
Shift Left
Shift Right
Shift Up
Shift Down
Displays @ once normally
Suppresses the carriage return that Mojo normally types at the end of the Slash and SlashEx commands.

The letters in control sequences can be either lower or uppercase.

To display @ once normally, type it twice.

If @ is followed by a character not shown in the table, Mojo treats it as an error and displays a question mark.

SlashEx is a little slower than Slash because it pauses for a fraction of a second each time it moves the cursor.

For more info, see Slash.
