    Add User To Buddy List and Launch IM Session From Application

    Hello All!

    I have integrated Chat, Chat Admin and Messenger in to my current application. (Custom C#) Now what I need to do is one of the these two options: From my users profile page I need to 1. be able to launch a chat session or 2. Add the user to the messenger buddy list.

    I have a dating site and each member has a profile. If I "Admin" am looking at "CuteSofts" profile and I like what I see, I need there to be a link on that profile that either says “chat” and will open a IM session with user CuteSoft or a link that can add CuteSoft to my Buddy list.

    Please let me know if this is possible and how I would go about doing it!

    Thanks in advance

    I will try this, thanks! I will also to be sure to create a session that will only show the link to paid members. This should ensure the user is in the CuteChatUser table.
     
    Thanks again for your help!

    Re: Add User To Buddy List and Launch IM Session From Application

    I have added the code above, however when you click the link to open the chat window, it always open a chat window to username Admin. This script is going to be used in search results and on profile pages so I need it to open a chat window to the user in the search results and the profile pages.

    Where does the script call for the uniquename? Why would it just continue to open the chat session for Admin username?

    Please Help!!!!

    Nick,
     
    Please make sure the current user has login. And the target user does exist in your application.
     
    The CuteChat framework will automatically find out who initiates the communication session.

    Re: Add User To Buddy List and Launch IM Session From Application

    How do I pass the information of the target user to the buddy list and to IM when I launch IM Session from user's profile? It kept defaulting to the current logon user, which is me; which means I'm communicating with myself. The target user does exist in my application. Also, when I try to add the target user to contact list, it shows me the same user all the time, which is the current logon user. Finally, I'm getting a failed to validate license when I try to launch it from another computer in my local network.
     
    Will the target username be the UniqueName between the hyperlink tags as shown below?
    <a href="#" onclick="Chat_OpenContact('IE')"><img src="CuteSoft_Client/CuteChat/Images/avatar.gif">UniqueName=IE</a>
     
    Help,
     
    thanks...Nick

    Hello Nick,
     
    In my application I have written code to pull the current users UserName (data bind). This is common to personalize a site, for example after a user logs in, the welcome page will read, "Welcome Back UserName."
     
    All you need to do is create this code if you do not already have and insert the bound data where the script says IE. See below...
     
    <A class="searchBottom" href="#" onclick="Chat_OpenContact('<%=username%>')">Chat</a>

    Re: Add User To Buddy List and Launch IM Session From Application

    OK, I'm almost there. Everything is working fine but I have one minor problem. The chat framework don't know when users are online unless users open the IM browser or the contacts menu. I logged on to my application as one user (UserA) from one PC and logged on to the same application as a different user (UserB) from another PC. When UserA tried to contact UserB, the message is sent as offline message unless UserB bring up his/her IM browser or the contacts menu. Also, UserB is unable to view the offline messages that were sent before he/she opened the IM browser or the contacts menu. Is this how it normally works or do I need to change something?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Nick:
     
    The 'Online' of Messenger is different from 'Online' of website .
     
    So if an user don't open the Messenger , the user would be Offline .
     
    The Offline Messages have a bug, We will publish a new update next week , include fixing that bug .
     
    We also provide an API function to tell the user that , "he has new offline message , please open messenger to check it"
     
    Regards , Terry .

    Great, please let me know when the update/fixes for the Offline message bug comes out. Also, is there a way to automatically launch/open the messenger in a sleep/minimize mode when the user is online on the website?
     
    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Is the API function to tell the user that , "he has new offline message , please open messenger to check it" a part of the 3.1 update or a separate download???
