Open Source Chat Program

Environment:VC5, VC6

FriendlyTalk is a simple chat program offering the standard features of a chat client. FriendlyTalk allows its users to send instant invitations to chat; chat with any number of people, in real-time; set away messages; and more. FriendlyTalk also boasts an unique combination of mIRC- and ICQ-style chats; not only can you see your friends type, but you have a history of the chat for easy reference.

If you're interested in building your own chat program, or simply learning how its done, FriendlyTalk can save you a lot of time. Often its instructive to see all the components working together; you can also easily separate the various parts for use alone in your applications.

Implemented features to learn and use

Below is an abbreviated list of the components that went into building FriendlyTalk.

  • Bitmap item list boxes
  • Bitmap background list boxes
  • Owner-drawn GUI item for chat history

  • Multi-thread handling / communication
  • Paned options dialog box
  • System registry API
  • Filesystem registry API
  • Network connection detector
