I made a complicated graphical chat program using visual basic and winsock. It's at www.olywa.net/royce.
Are you looking for an example of how to write your own?

Roy,  I checked your website www.olywa.net/royce.  Your app looks great.  I would really like an example to write my own.

There is an example in the Visual Basic Books online on how to make a very simple chat program. Search for "winsock" and look for "Using the winsock control". This is whatI used to get started.

Thanks Roy,  I have actually been looking at that example since this morning.  I found it when I searched using "chat".  I developed a VB 5.0 application that uses the MS NetMeeting SDK.  Unfortunatly,  not everyone in the office has NetMeeting installed.  Thanks for the information.  Please let me know if you plan to make your VB source available... I would really like to see how you did your app.

Hi Whuntley (and all else),
I have written a very simple chat program which allows you to connect to someone else in the office via the LAN using their Computer name or IP address. If you want the source code, mail me
directly, and I will send the source, instructions and the exe itself. OK....

download the Newt Intranet ActiveX component (6mb!) it is easily worth it and has many examples for winsock including chat applications. even if you have since made your application, you should still download it!
