Need some people to test my chat prog.

Its not finished as such, but Chat and PM work, and I want some people to test it for me before I get \"feature happy\".

Anyone interested?


I\'ve been doing it on my own comp at this stage, so I\'m worried that it won\'t work as well across the network.

I can test it on the LAN here if you wish - Windows XP machines with an NT domain server.

Well, I\'m up the tree as to whats wrong with it.... It kinda works, and then it kinda doesn\'t.

I\'m storing in the Forms Tag the name of the person who is in the PM conversation with. (only 1 on 1).

The problem is that sometimes that it will open a second PM window.

Maybe u can find whats wrong :bang: :bang: :bang:

Anyway, it should still work, just not perfectly.

As I said, its just PM and chat, so theres no menus or colourfulness.

Checked it out and didn\'t appear to have the problem you suggested.

Only thing was that each client could only see the administrator running on the server - there didn\'t appear to be a way for one client to talk to another.

Well, Client and Server should be able to talk 2 each other via PM and chat.  (Messages are relayed through the server), but PM is abit weird on both ends.

Did both clients see each other on the user lists?

No they did not, each client just showed the server user

Ok. It runs fine on my comp, but I haven\'t done much Lan testing as such.

:bang:

Bah...

Did messages go from client to client though?  As I\'m using 2 sockets, which will help me figure out which is the prob. smile

Ok, well, here it is again, and fingers crossed this time. smile

I rewrote the User list part, so it should work faster this time.

Before I was resending the whole list when they left, now I just send the one that needs to be removed.  Only thought about user lists afterwards, so thats what happens I guess. smile

Ok, next version,

Heres the list of things that I\'ve fixed, according to my log.

Quote

Feb 4, 2003
User list issues sent back for testing
User status begins.
Interface Design Begins.
Administrative controls, (boot, warn) added.

Feb 6, 2003
Fixed Disconnection issues, as a result of Boot.

Feb 9, 2003
Swear Word Filter implemented into Project.

Feb 11, 2003
Gag 5 and Gag Hour, Boot, Warn Completed.
Client and Server can successfully PM - Apparently
Swear Filter Bugs Fixed - not filtering messages a user posts.
AddMessage Function Fixed in Client.

Things I need you guys to focus on are Server limits, which at the moment has to be set through code, and its in Form_Load of the server, 1 is the min.

Private Messaging - Well, I did some minor stuff, and it appears to be working, but, I reckon its still not right.  I think it can occur between Client - Client chat.

Client Login - If you get a blank userlist after connecting to a server which is up and running, then I\'m already aware of this problem. smile

Swear Filter is basic only, so don\'t worry about trying to beat it to much.

And Server chat control, like Silence, Boot, Warn, Gag.  Actually Gag is needed to be reworked. :bang: It works, but its bad resource wise apparently.

I think thats it. smile
