  • [Planning] Embed Aim/trillian/yahoo etc - Need some input

    I want to embed AIM into road runner and I am trying to think through the best route. I have embeded the buddy list but I need to be able to do multiple windows. It will be all setup to where my friends can direct connect to me and send me pictures and wavs like you do in normal aim on a computer.

    what would the best skin appoarch be for this type of application.


    any help would be great

    thanks

      I think Trillian is the way, as you can use all of the messangers at once (thanks Quattro for pointing me to this program )

        yeah... trillian is def. nice.

        using the tabbed feature is probably gonna be a good idea, and having each tab (conversation) flash when a new IM is received...

          Actually, I'm pretty sure Trillian has SDK... while I'm most likely not to do it myself, it shouldn't be hard to make a plugin to run it integrated in RR.

            I am going to rig aim to work first the maybe I will do trillian. I like how aim auto plays the wav file when its sent trillain doesn't seem to do that.

            Anyway back to the ole' Keycode / ascii / sendkey

            GAME ON

            Alright here is something I have discovered, sendkeys steal focus on windows and don't usually get sent correctly. But if I use "K" keys like what is used for the OSK the window doesn't reject the key press even though it appears to lose focus. Similar to how in the OSK you can type lose focus on the text bar but it will still send letters too it.

            Okay now that you follow that my problem is finding the codes for buttons for the "K" keys.

            Where do I find the codes for Line(which doesn't seem to effect the button if its filled in or not)

            These three are needed

            ascii,code ,tool tip

            I am trying to do ALT - O which is view buddy profile

            I found with the keypress program that the keypress is 4079

            I don't know its late I need 2 things some help and some sleep

            Hopefully I can wake up with some answers

            thanks

              The K commands only send text to the OSK's textbox.. I don't believe those keys would ever be passed onto any application, in any case they can't simulate alt/ctr/shift presses. When you use sendkeys, the embbeded application should be automatically activated for receiving the keys, if they get the keys or not, is up to the application as this is a very standard VB command to send keys to other applications ..

                The keys work becuase I used them to change the preset in milkdrop. Where can I find the codes for those. Its must work becuase a keycode in that program you gave it me 4079 with ALT and different with just O so its the actual ALT-O keypress. I need to find out where to get the codes ascii,code and tooltip.

                These do work try it so its not just for a text box really....

                    I heard they immediately got into a car accident because they were too busy IM'ing instead of paying attention to the road.

                      Not to be a dick.. but what is the purpose of IMing in your car ? Wouldn't require a little too much attention while you're driving ?!

                              the same purpose of having a dvd player even tho it requires a lot of attention! and of having phoco sms when it requires a lot of attention. A lot of people do wait and spend a fair amount of time in cars, and attend weekend shows where its handy to log on and send a few messages when the day lulls a little. I tried to implement this using the idea someone used a while back with trillian, however i cant stand that program so atm all that happens is it embeds msn so can see who is online. Would like this to be implemented eventually and there is the possibility of being done in another frontend of which im trying to bully them into it hehe
