Multi User Chat

Hello,

Im trying to make multi userchat with userlist,
I would like to use TServer/ClientSocket but Indy fine too.

I cant do it, it always seems to go wrong when I try to add userlist to the application.

Can someone make a demo application for me?
Will offer more points.

I guess the experts here will be more willing to participate if you ask in specifics. Since you are facing problems adding users to userlist, well, show us how you have done it, and ask for advice, and I'm sure many experts will be willing to share their views.

As in asking the experts to write a full-fledged application for you, well, most will be reluctant.

Having said that, the Indy components *do* come with a sample client/server chat application... maybe you would like to check it out.

Thanks for your reply, I did look at that Indy demo, Didnt like it at all lol

Ok, What I have so far is;

One App (Server)
Other App (Client)

Any data sent to the Server, The server then sends it to all Clients connected.
This is using TServer/ClientSocket

Removing the user from the list.

Show us some code, on how you add users to the list? And why does your user removal work?

-Karamja-Author Commented:
When they connect, They send something like
NICK:User1 (User1 being his nick)
Server would then read the NICK: part then send
ADD:User1 to the clients
Clients add User1 to the list.

On quit, Client will send
QUIT:User1
Server reads and sends
DEL:User1

Then the client trys to find User1 in the list, and remove it
But never seems to work,
 - It wont remove it
 - List out of bounds

Karamja, again, please post some code, even the parts that do not work. Otherwise it would be hard for anyone to help you debug. Post the code on how you add the client, and the buggy code on where you want to remove the client.

It sound like IRC. You can use Indy components for IRC and "silently" join all clients to e specified channel, where the message is sent to all clients in the channel. You can also implement private chats between 2 clients. All this is supported by IRC. Look at the classes TidIRCServer and TidIRC ...
