Question Chatbox in VB.net ?


I have an application with many things in it, and I have space left for a chatbox.
I also have a server which I will be able to use to run the chatroom on.

My problem is: the code
I do not know what codes I need to make a chatbox in my application (normal Windows form).

Can anyone help me? And if I say something that isn't true, please correct me and tell me everything that can help me. I could only find old codes that don't work for VB2008 on google... Thanks!

Default

"the code" could be anything from displaying the text to communication over TCP so more information is required, i.e. how far have you got with your own code, what does your application currently do and what is the current problem you are facing?

I'll assume you are familiar with using sockets having created your client/server however a good starting point is http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...t.sockets.aspx

You will need to code your server to accept connections and store a list of connected users which can (if you require) be sent out to all so they can see who is 'Online'. You will also need to decide on your packet design for transmitting the chat messages to all connected users, for instance:

USERNAME||TIMEOFMSG||MESSAGE_DETAILS

Your client listener will receive these packets, seperate out the segments and display what is needed in your on-screen textbox.

Hope that helps.
