I am developing an intranet utility for adding messaging functionality.
I use HTML, VB Script / Java Script.
I want to make use of the existing session of yahoo messenger running in the client machine and get the buddy list from the yahoo messenger from that machine.
Thus i can make the client web application as a light weight one instead of implementing our own messenger.
I came to know that i can use Yahoo Messenger URI ymsgr which invokes yahoo messenger from the client's machine. few of them are
1) ymsgr:sendim?username => this opens the instant message popup of the existing yahoo messenger session (if not looged on loads yahoo messenger and the user has to login manually)
2) ymsgr:chat?chatroomname => try this and see what happens
3) ymsgr:call?username => uses the yahoo call center interface
4) ymsgr:sendfile?username => try this

the above said were only few of the available functionality.

Can anyone help me out to find out the rest of the functionalities (function calls like sendim / call / sendfile).
