Hi,
I want to send message and file from MSN Messenger to MSN Messenger with C#.
When MSN Messenger opened. I want to control it. Change nickname, send message to added contacts etc.
How can I do it?

Sorry for my bad English.
Thanks.

There seems to be no straightforward way for doing it. I too tried with Office Communicator 2005 sometime back but in vain. The below links might help you in making a C# app independent of the Messenger -

I researched all those links, whole google....
I think, I must use MSN Messenger DLL files.
But which?

I tried to write a small app yesterday. Here is what I wrote and it worked. But, I had Office Communicator 2005 and a similar approach should work with MSN Messenger.

 
CommunicatorAPI.MessengerClass m = new CommunicatorAPI.MessengerClass();

CommunicatorAPI.IMessengerContactAdvanced contact = m.GetContact("user@domain.com", string.Empty) as CommunicatorAPI.IMessengerContactAdvanced;

this.Visible = false;
CommunicatorAPI.IMessengerConversationWndAdvanced imWindow = m.InstantMessage(contact) as CommunicatorAPI.IMessengerConversationWndAdvanced;            

imWindow.Show();

SendKeys.Send("Hello, this is an autobot");
SendKeys.Send("{ENTER}");

Open in new window


Below are the references I added.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Chandra
