    Showing the number of users online

    I'm running Cutechat under DNN2 on trial and I'm keen to display the number of users online (and maybe also who) either on it's own within the portal or preferably on a stand alone web page. This is as I would like to show the number of users online in a custom browser toolbar which is only about 30 pixels (or 1 charcter) high. The toolbar can display html or similar code within a framed webpage. So if I could somehow display this info on 1 line at the top of a blank html or basic browser viewable page that would be great.
     
    If I can make this work I will be sure to purchase a full license as after much research, functionallity and dnn integration is the best on the market.
     
    Thanks.
     
    Lyndon.

    Lyndon,
     
    In the default User conteol,  Cute Chat display the chat room as followings:

    Chat Room4 ( 1 ) 
     
    If you put your mouse cursor over the above link, you can easily find out the online users in the chat room.  You can easily modify this user control to meet your own requirements.

    Re: Showing the number of users online

    Adam,
     
    Telling me that I can easily modify something without saying how isn't very helpful for me. As I said in my first post, I want to be able to display the information somewhere else in addition to on the portal's main module area. I would like to display the information in isolation so that I can utilise it within a browser toolbar. I'm hoping I can do this with a very small web page (without the rest of the module info, sit skin, menus etc) which I can then include within a frame within my toolbar.
     
    please take another lok at this. I could really use some pointers to get this going as I have bought a full license for the product.
     
    So simply put - how do I get this info either in a standard html / asp page and how do I adjust what / how it's displayed?
     
    Thanks,
     
    Lyndon

    Lyndon,
     
    Please save the following code as a control, for example chatcount.ascx.
     
    <%@ Control Language="vb" Inherits="DotNetNuke.PortalModuleControl" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="DotNetNuke" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="CuteSoft.Chat" %>
    <script runat="server">
        Protected Overrides Sub OnLoad(ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
            MyBase.OnLoad(e)
            If Not IsPostBack Then
                Dim ChatCount As Integer
                For Each lobbyinfo As LobbyInfo In ChatApi.GetLobbyInfoArray()
                   ChatCount = ChatCount + lobbyinfo.ClientCount
                Next
                Literal1.Text = ChatCount.ToString
            End If      
        End Sub   
    </script>
    <asp:Literal ID="Literal1" Runat="server" />


    And add it as a module to your DNN. That will resolve the problem.

    Re: Showing the number of users online

    Hi Adam,
     
    Thanks for this. I managed to get the number up and things are looking good. Would you mind helping just a little more? I'm keen to make the link work so I can also see who's in the room. What do I need to add to make this work?
     
    Thanks in advance,
     
    Lyndon.
