Hello, I searched the source code, UI macross and I didn't find any UI Macro with empty execute cmd.
Generally I mean that it would be very usefull to create UI's custom cmds for LUA.
I want to create UI frame with string and I want to send string to server, and I can't do it, because I can send it only by callvotes.
This should be look like this
else if ( Q_stricmp( name, "customcmd" ) == 0 ) {
    trap_Cmd_ExecuteText( EXEC_APPEND, va( "%s\n", trap_Cvar_VariableValue( "ui_customcmd" ) ) );
   }
Then you can send everything by this and catch it by LUA.
It is very helpful in making many kinds of UI frames for clients.

I get it, you want to have commands to send custom information, the frames are not that important in this case, just the ui cmd that is missing, right?

Yep, its not possible to send "easy" custom information via ui cmd to server.
