On Join - Events - mIRC
< mirc‎ | on events

The ON JOIN event triggers when the mIRC client, or a remote user, joins a channel.

Note: When you join a channel yourself, $nick($chan,0) is always 1 inside the ON JOIN event because mIRC has to send /names to get the nickname; if you want to undertake some processing once the channel user list is complete, then use the RAW 366 event which indicates the end of the user list. Similarly, if you're an operator on the channel, you won't have been opped at the point that the ON JOIN event runs, so if you need to use your op capabilities inside the event script then you should use the ON OP event instead.


ON <level>:JOIN:<#[,#]>:<commands>


<level>The corresponding access levels for the event to trigger.

<#,[,#]>The text that to be matched. Can also be a wildcard.

[,#]Specific channel names

<commands>The commands to be performed when the event listener's criteria is met.


The following example makes use of the ON ME event, which triggers only when the local mIRC client triggers the event, not remote users.

ON ME:*:JOIN:#testing: { msg $chan Hello $chan - Today is $day and time is $time }

The following example works for everyone else who joins but except your self.

ON !*:JOIN:#mychan: { msg $chan Hey $nick $+ ! Welcome in our channel. }

Who ever joins, send them a greeting:

ON *:JOIN:#:msg # Welcome to # $+ , $nick $+ !

Override the join event to print a custom text and then tell mIRC to ignore it's own text.

on ^*:JOIN:*:{
  echo -tcbf join $chan * $nick ( $+ $fulladdress $+ ) join $chan
