    UPDATE -> cut contact names

    The names of the online contacts are cut to 17 letters by default.

    To show the full length (the table is wide enough) find:

    Code:
    AB_=fixName(H_(i).FriendlyName,17)
    It is in line 140

    Replace it with:

    Code:
    AB_=fixName(H_(i).FriendlyName,130)
    130 signs is the maximum length of a name in MSN Messenger!


    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


    All updates are included in version 1.1 which replaced the old version.
    Zip file is updated

        bug ???

        Hi

        the hack is working fine apart from the fact that when you log out of the board, the image in the left bar next to the hack doesnt appear.

        when i find out the properties of the image location is says :-

        ...folder/.gif

        this is why it doesnt appear but I dont know how I can fix this.

        Can someone tell me how please.

        Thanx

          The same things appeared for some ppl with the world time zone hack!

          It uses the icon for the PM status!

          I really dunno what accours this.

          For me it works fine, and it is not an error in the code!

          One question:

          Is the icon for the PMs also away?

            OK, I found a solution:

            in the template replace "$lightbulb.gif" with "on.gif".

            The always the yellow icon is shown and it is not dependent on the PM status anymore.

            THIS FIX IS ALSO INCLUDED IN 1.1!!!

              This is cool,
              But is there anyway that we can get the online names to appear in rows of 4 or 5 next to eachother?

              If you have 30 names and all the names are under eachother it would look tore up from the floor up

              Just wondering.
              Cool hack

                First of all 30 online contacts is very much!

                I never have 30 of my ppl online the same time although I have about 70 in my list!


                Then the problem with the tables is that you can't do that in the template!

                You would have to edit the VBS script!
                But if you find a solution you can tell me!

                  Sarge, here is the code which list the users online:

                  Code:
                  If I_>0 Then
                  Dim Z_,ol,nc
                  Z_=""
                  ol=0
                  nc=30
                  Dim i
                  i=0
                  While i<I_ And ol<nc
                  Dim s
                  s=H_(i).State
                  If s AND 2 Then
                  ol=ol+1
                  Dim h,AB_
                  h=" href="""&"vbscript:op("&i&")"""
                  AB_=fixName(H_(i).FriendlyName,130)
                  Z_=Z_&"<a"&h&">"&getStateImage(s)&"</a> "&"<a"&h&" title="""
                  Z_=Z_&"Send an instant message to"&" "&AB_&"."
                  Z_=Z_&""" class=mclink>"&K_&AB_
                  Z_=Z_&"</font></a><br>"
                  End If
                  i=i+1
                  Wend
                  If ol>0 Then
                  W_="block"
                  What you could try is to make let this loop run until let's say 10 contacts.
                  Then make a new loops which runs from 11 to 20, and so on.
                  Give the class always a different name like mclink1, mclink2, ...
                  Then you can try if you can create several columns in the table row containing the online contacts in the template, by using clas mclink1 for the first comlumn, mclink2 for the second, and so on.

                  I think that is the only way to seperate the online users and put them in different tablerows or columns!

                    I forgot something to mention:

                    What I meant with the creating of the classes mclink1 and mclink2 is the following line:

                    Code:
                    Z_=Z_&""" class=mclink>"&K_&AB_
                    But I really can't say if this commands creates this class or calls it!

                    You have to ask some Visual Basic coders!

                    They will know what to do in your case!

                      I thought about doing this, the thought of redistributing Microsoft's code didn't please me. Especially when it specifically was not released for public distribution and they went to a decent amount of effort to obfuscate it to prevent it from being stolen.

                          First of all they did not do any effort to prevent it from being stolen!

                          Second is that it is NO service that runs from their server!

                          The Message Center does nothing but reflecting the status of your local running program to an internet site!

                          It would be something different if you would get access to the MSN main server where the online status is stored so that you could display if a user is online in MSN WITHOUT having to start the program! That would be access to their services!

                          All it does now it showing your own contacts only to you!

                            I removed this hack.

                            It is a good idea, but it looks like crap (to much wasted space). I will wait for a newer release

                                i dont like how all the names are undereachother.

                                I had 12 people on the other day and that table was huge.

                                It would look more sweet if the names were next to eachother and wrapped.

                                Also if the login boxes were next to eachother also
