OK, I got REALLY bored alst night when my cable wen tout, so I started playing around with my help files and coding somethin I thought would be a joke. I learned TCP/IP in about an hour and now have a chat client that works, but has two minor problems (not networking related).
The first is this. The child window that you enter text in has focus. You type a message to your buddy and press enter. Windows just "dings" and sits there. It will send if you CLICK the send button, but how can I bind the enter key to the send button?
Next, the big edit control that is used to display the chat text starts at the top and goes down. How do I make the chat start at the bottom and go up like in a traditional chat client, such as PIRCH or mIRC?
Thanks for the info, and once I am sure this program works and leaves no back-doors I'll post it online for people to check out.
