What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi negatyve,

                 Great it worked...... But still one problem......when messages are flooded for example if there are 20+ messages in the chatroom....The scrollbar should get automatically....scrolled up... I mean whatever the latest message is should come up......
And whenever user logins the user should get scrolled to the latest message.
               I am 100% sure that you can help me......
Please Help

Hi,

Your solution works ...Great
i will accept your solutions in few minutes...

But Still one problem. In the Scroll when the chat messages get added form the asp pages, we are not able to scroll up. If we try to go up it slides to the bottom.

thanks.

You cannot avoid it. If you want the list line to be shown when a new message is coming, it has to check the server over a defined period of time, and then scroll to the bottom. This one is not a *very* good and scalable chat...
