View Full Version : Private Chat Problem

06-21-2005, 05:23 AM
Hi gurus,
I am working on a private chat(One to One) just like a messenger.
I am using tutorial_text (sample) as base.

Is there any code available for the private chat. Please help gurus..

The Main.asc file is as show below... What should be in the client ?

application.onAppStart = function()
trace("Begin sharing text");

// Get the server shared object users_so
application.users_so = SharedObject.get("users_so", false);

// Initialize the history of the text share
application.history = "";

// Initialize the unique user ID
application.nextId = 0;
//application.onConnect = function(newClient, name)
application.onConnect = function(newClient, name)

// Make this new client's name the user's name
newClient.name = name;

// Create a unique ID for this user while incrementing the
// application.nextID.
newClient.id = "u" + application.nextId++;

// Update the users_so shared object with the user's name
application.users_so.setProperty(newClient.name, name);

// Accept the client's connection

// Call the client function setHistory, and pass
// the initial history
newClient.call("setHistory", null, application.history);

// The client will call this function to get the server
// to accept the message, add the user's name to it, and
// send it back out to all connected clients.
newClient.msgFromClient = function(msg) {
application.users_so.send("msgFromSrvr", msg);
application.onDisconnect = function(client)
trace("disconnect: " + client.name);
application.users_so.setProperty(client.name, null);

We have used the old Samual Wan's code and improvise on it again and again and have build many facades of private chats. Try this one for instance

Hi ,It seems to be good Audio and video Flash script, excellent work.
What i am looking for is a MSN messenger type(web based) one to one chat system where all the User name will be displayed like

Test 1
Test 2
Test 3

and so on...

so if for example i am logged in as CALLE

and click on Test1 a pop should open and start a private chat between Test 1 and CALLE

Also once clicked on Test 2 a separate conversation with Test 2
so 2 windows .... and so on ..

Also i should be able to change the color...for the messages...

Please Help and i know you would.

Well, the way you like is also definitely possible.
But it is not something that I wrote some lines of coe and it will be working for you. Why not you start off and ask us for further help.

I'm wondering if you find the answer, I need to build the private chat and I don't know how...:confused:

Yes, we did. This is very old story.
We did it during the Flashcom 1.0 server days and many people have come up with many other solutions after that.

I don't even remember, where I kept that source archive.
If you're still interested, contact me (http://www.brajeshwar.com/contact/).
