The ON NICK event triggers when a user is on the same channel as you, and they change their nickname.

This event fills the $newnick and $nick identifiers.

Identifier Description
$newnick The new nickname of the user. You can use it with $comchan for example.
$nick The user's previous nickname.


ON <level>:NICK:<commands>


Echo the nickname change, and disregard mIRC's default nick change message:

ON ^*:NICK: {
  echo $comchan($newnick,1) * $nick |==> $newnick
  ; Halt the default mIRC message

The results of the above example resemble the following:

* Mr_SOCKS |==> noLaundry

Echo to the channel when the local nickname is changed, and halt mIRC's default message:

ON ME:^*:NICK: {
  echo $comchan($newnick,1) You are now ==> $newnick
  ; Halt the default mIRC message

The example above should have an output resembling the following:

You are now ==> whoMe
Because ON NICK is not associated with # or $chan, to show a nick change message in all channels you share with that nick, you can use $comchan. You can simulate mIRC's default Nick Change message in channels with:
ON ^*:NICK:{
  var %i $comchan($newnick,0)
  while (%i) {
    echo -ctg nick $chan(%i) * # $iif($nick == $me,Your nick # is now,$nick is now known as) $newnick
    dec %i
 ; You can precede HALTDEF with a semi-colon to compare this messages with the default
