Disable clicking on chat bar?

Howdy. I am looking for a way to disable clicking on the chat bar (without disabling chat itself), so that the only way to chat is by pressing the slash key. I am making a shooter game, and a common complaint among my players is that it is easy to accidentally click on the chat bar. This is disruptive because it stops the player from moving until they click outside of the chat bar; however, some players don’t want to have to close chat entirely just to avoid this risk.

Is there an easy way to disable this, or will I have to create a custom chat system in order to achieve it?


Sadly you would have to fork the legacy chat system to do this, as I could not find a setting in the ChatSettings module for disabling the click.
