Getting online user's IP address from ICQ

Hi !
I am developing a voice chat application. I want to link it with ICQ. Things i want to do are:
1. A listbox containing all the online users from user's ICQ
   I had seen applications with this features but i don't know how they implemented that.
2. When the user selects a user name from the list. The IP address of that user should be stored in a variable.

Do you have an API spec from MIRABILIS?

No, I donot have any API spec from MIRABILIS.

Go to: http://www.mirabilis.com/products/app-develop.html. They have the ICQ API (used to have your program interact with ICQ) and some documents regarding what you are trying to do. It is fairly comprehensive if you look into it.

Thanx SlackerJer for showing right direction.

i need to get the ica user list too, but i dont want to use the icq api because it limits the ditribution of the software that uses their api. do you know of any source code that parses their db?

Sorry hitai !
I don't know about any such source code.
Atleast what you can do is write a small program using icq api and sees how it parses their db to get the ip addresses. you can use VC++ debugger for that to see the info in memory itself and then try to interpret it's db and write your own functions for that.
