    Dear Neeraj,
     
    Please open global.asax, you will find the following method, please update the highlighted code and set the nickname:
     
    public static bool GetUserInfo(string loginName,ref string nickName,ref string password,ref bool isAdmin)
     {
      loginName=loginName.ToLower();
      Hashtable table=(Hashtable)System.Web.HttpRuntime.Cache["UserInfo:"+loginName];
      if(table==null)
      {
       using(System.Data.IDbConnection conn=Instance.CreateConnection())
       {
        conn.Open();
        using(System.Data.IDbCommand cmd=conn.CreateCommand())
        {
         cmd.CommandText="SELECT * FROM SampleUsers WHERE "+LowerLoginName+"="+SqlEncode(loginName);
         using(System.Data.IDataReader sdr=cmd.ExecuteReader())
         {
          if(!sdr.Read())
           return false;
          table=new Hashtable(new CaseInsensitiveHashCodeProvider(),new CaseInsensitiveComparer());
          for(int i=0;i<sdr.FieldCount;i++)
           table[sdr.GetName(i)]=sdr.IsDBNull(i)?null:sdr.GetValue(i);
         }
        }
       }
       System.Web.HttpRuntime.Cache["UserInfo:"+loginName]=table;
      }
      nickName=table["NickName"].ToString();
      //nickName="firstname"+"lastname"; please customize the nickName based on your requirement      
      password=table["Password"].ToString();
      isAdmin=(1==Convert.ToInt32(table["IsAdmin"]));
      return true;
     }
     
    Thank you for asking

    Hi,
    I had changed the nick name for client operator in sampleuser table and it works well. Now the thing is the user who is trying to contact to live support agent I want to change his username also as firstname + lastname.
     
    Thanks

    Dear nrsharma,
     
    The display name of operator and website visitors is generated from the following method:
     
         public static bool GetUserInfo(string loginName,ref string nickName,ref string password,ref bool isAdmin)
     
    In this method, you can find code "nickName=table["NickName"].ToString(); "
     
    "nickName" is the display name of operator and website visitors.
     
    Both operator client and website visitor page will call this method and return the display name. You can set this and let it be equal to firstname+lastname.
     
    You can follow the following steps to verify this:
    1. Open "SampleUsers" and create 3 more users
        username: user1,user2,user3
        nickname:eric user1,eric user2,eric user3
    2. Login to operator client as "user1"
    3. Open IE and login to your website as "user2"
    4. You will find the display name of these two users will be "eric user1" and "eric user2".
     
    Thank you for asking

    Re: Name in the Live Support Chat window

    Hi Eric,
    Here the scenario is different in my case
    The operator login credentials are in the sample user table but the login credentials of website visitor is in another table.
    Now the thing is when I had changed the nickname for operator in the sampleuser table, it works well but the display name of website visitor is still username.
     
    Please reply me if you want more clarification.
     
    Thanks
    Neeraj Sharma

    Re: Name in the Live Support Chat window

    Hi,

     

    I have this setup in DNN site with v6.2.

    Also would like to change the name that shows for the operator (and user if possible). Was trying to follow the instructions above but my global.asax file doesn't contain that code only a few lines with 

    public override void Init()

     

    Apreciate if you could help on this.

    Thanks!
