Urgent! ASPX Chat room with new message audio alert RRS feed

  • Question

  • please can someone tell in plain english, step-by-stop how to make a chat room in ASPX - i need it to play a sound when a new message is received.

    is there a way to get it to use the username of the logged on user, using Active Directory.
    Domain\John logs on to the website, 
    he goes to the chat.aspx page, 
    he wries "Hi its John" 
    the chat system prints
    John: Hi its John

    i am a vb.net person so aspx.vb style

  • #1)  You are not likely to get a "step-by-step" on how to build a chatroom as that would be a fairly significant project, with a LOT of decisions to make (there is no one way to build a chat room), and chat applications are retail software (so if you don't know how to build your own, or aren't willing to take the time to learn, you will likely be told to buy an existing one).

    #2)  These forums are for Windows Forms applications.  For Web Forms applications, please visit the official ASP Forums at http://forums.asp.net
