Description: ConquerChat script allows you to perform a HTML-based chat.
If you want to set up a chat server on your own ASP enabled site, just place these files in a directory of your choice and make a link to default.asp. This page is used to login users. Furthermore, you will need to add some lines in your global.asa file.
A panel on your right side of ConquerChat always shows current number of online users. Your own login name will be marked with bold type.
The area taking up most space is of course the messages area. This area shows the latest posted messages and notification messages, e.g. when a new users logs in or when an old user logs out.
When you write a message and press send, this window will be refreshed, i.e. a new document will be generated on server and send to you. If you don't participate in a chat, the window will automatically update every 10 second.
The update interval is determined by the META tag in 'window.asp' and is easy to configure yourself. If you are thinking of running ConquerChat on a LAN, you might want to make it update every second or so.
To send a message, type in a string in the bottom edit field. You're able to use standard shortcuts, e.g. Ctrl C and Ctrl V on Windows platforms.
When you're satisfied with your message, press 'send' or simply hit return on your keyboard. Your message will appear shortly after. All text will be selected when it has been send, making it possible to type a new message right away without having to delete your old message.
