Hi, im trying to make a small facebook messenger, but normally that i have problem since im here :)

How to get all friend and chat with them ? over TCP or UDP ?

And now window is not hidden but in future will be and process too.

Im not so good in explaining things but here is code

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

Global $window = _IECreate('https://www.facebook.com/', 0, 0, 1), $Form1, $login, $email, $password, $stayLogged

Local $oWbn = _IEGetObjById($window, "pagelet_welcome_box")

If IsObj($oWbn) = 0 Then
;~  MsgBox(0, '', 'not logged')

    $Form1 = GUICreate("Facebook messenger", 359, 210, 338, 218)
    GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 10, 8, 337, 137)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "Calibri")
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Email :", 64, 36, 40, 19)

Hey Akira2891,

Facebook have tools that can assist you in building your messenger client. The last time I looked into this, they were using a facebook chat API. However a quick search shows that they've depreciated the api, and removed XMPP permissions for the messenger.

At first glance it seems like they're forcing developers to link to their messenger app and integrate with it, as opposed to allowing developers to integrate with it directly. (Notice here).

I'm not trying to discourage you, But the only way I can think of doing this, is to do utilise the Graph API they currently have (Found here); That contains Get requests for retrieving friends lists/ Messages etc... It may actually even be able to handle POST responses for messages; I haven't looked to in depth.

I would suggest reading the documentation on facebook's developer site, head over to W3Schools and school yourself on GET vs POST HTTP requests, and look into HTTP GET/POST requests on the forums here for examples on how to use them within AutoIT, (Example)

what you're trying to achieve is no small task, And I honestly believe that using the API will, although initially be harder to comprehend and implement successfully, would be a much better approach than trying to hide the facebook website in the background, And trying to send messages through the messenger portion of the website.

If you are still considering using a hidden browser window as your approach to this, then i would suggest you use www.messenger.com as this is facebooks website version of it's Messenger app.

Hopefully my ramblings help you, And best of luck.

I saw they removed API for messenger that day when they shut off their tool, so it will be hard way to get this to work especialy because i didnt worked with facebook API's never.

I have a decent knowledge in php but i will try to make it without php, because for php i need hosting to upload a script with code.

But again i think it's a best way to hide browser in background.

Anyway thanks for your reply.

      A UDF to connect to IRC using TCP Functions, as well as perform actions once connected.
      WANTED: Technical Writer able to create / maintain a helpfile (.chm) using the Autoit helpfile layout for an negotiated rate.

      Notes:
      Originally created by Chip.
      UDF Headers updated compared to old script.
      Error and Parameter Handling updated compared to old script.

      Message output only displays ANSI characters in CUI. (Can't Fix) Freenode requires registration for part messages thus the part message in example doesn't show up (Can't fix) Messages (e.g. PRIVMSG) are not forwarded?, when it contains umlauts/german mutations and when the message only contains a dot '.' (Unconfirmed) Warnings:
      Do NOT send a lot of messages at once. MOST networks will disconnect you. SOME networks will permanently ban you. A MINORITY will harshly retailiate. Do NOT use the Sleep() function in your scripts. It prevents you from receiving any new data, can disconnect your from the network, and have other undesired consequences. Use the TimerInit() and TimerDiff() functions and possibly a message queue. To Do:
      Possibly add in SSL functionality Create More Functions for IRC commands An entire IRC daemon written in AutoIt Have _IRCChannelJoin check the channel list for errors Have _IRCChannelPart check the channel list for errors Possibly Include Kips TCP UDF for ASync Port Listening in Example Create Additional UDFs for extras such as CTCP, DCC, and Error Lookup Experiment with having functions check for the reply and see if reliable. Have _IRCMultiMode Check if User or Channel and Accept or Deny $_sParams Accordingly Upcoming Changes:
      To Be Decided

      Hi,
      I am trying to log into live.com using AutoIt.
      There are several examples, but none of them work with the current webpage.
      This is my code (because the username and password are not valid ;-) , I comment the "button click" out.):
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("live.com") _IELoadWait ($oIE) _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Sign in") $o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "f1") $o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "loginfmt") $o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "passwd") $o_signin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "idSIButton9") $username = "test@hotmail.com" $password = "testpassword" _IEAction ($o_login, "focus") _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_login, $username) _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_password, $password) ;_IEAction ($o_signin, "click") When I run the code I get the following:

      The value being set is garbeled with "PlaceholderText".
      Because of this, the username and password are invalid.
      Here screenhot of the placeholders text:

      When you start typing in one of the fields, the placeholder text is automatically deleted.
      When you set a value it stays.
      I found a workaround, to set focus on the element and send the username as an keyboard input to the field,
      but I would like a clean solution based on variables.
      So, does anyone now how to do this?

      Hi, I would like to make a login script with SQLite. The database looks like this:
      _SQLite_Exec(-1, "CREATE TABLE Users (id INT(8) NOT NULL, username VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL, password VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL, permission INT(8) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (id)); CREATE UNIQUE INDEX 'user_name_unique' ON 'Users' ('username' );") _SQLite_Exec(-1, "INSERT INTO Users(id, username, password, permission) VALUES ('0', 'default', 'password', '0');")
      theoretically I should make a query in this way, right?
      _SQLite_Query (-1, "SELECT id FROM Users WHERE username = '" & $ Recv [1] & "' AND password = '" & $ Recv [2] & "';", $ hQuery)
      but then I do not know how to know if you have found the 'id'

      s!mpL3 LAN Messenger as the name suggests is a messenger designed and developed to offer chat communication over Local Area Networks while being as simple to use as possible. This project started way back in 2008 with only basic functionality and is regularly updated with new features in order to make it more useful and user friendly. What I wanted was a simple, small, serverless program that would work without installation cause that was the ideal combination for my workplace back then, so I ended up with this!

      I have attached some images from various versions:
      Check the rest below! (from various versions)

      Previous downloads: 7430 (Without counting the ones from the Downloads section.)

      Current version 2.9.8.8! [30/09/2015]  s!mpL3 LAN Messenger.zip
      [Attachment version updated to 2.9.8.8]  

      s!mpL3 LAN Messenger version 2.9.8.8 - [30/09/2015]

      1. Removed some test code that could cause message boxes to pop up for Windows versions prior to Windows 10.


      You can view/download the full change log here: ChangeLog.txt

      Tested and working on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.


      Things you need to know before trying it:

      1. Start the program, select one or more connections from what's available and click Connect (If a firewall notice comes up, click 'Allow' or 'Add Exception')
      When someone else on your network does the same, they will appear in your TreeView and you will appear in theirs, double click their name and chat!

      2. s!mpL3 LAN Messenger does not require a server to be running, it's standalone.

      3. On the first run an .ini file is created at @LocalAppDataDirs!mpL3 LAN Messenger which stores the settings so that they are used every time you run the application. If you delete the .ini file it will be created again (with default settings at program startup or with your selected settings if you press Save from the Preferences window).

      4. All communication is encrypted using AES so it's quite secure against Network sniffers.

      5. You can send files and folders by dragging and dropping them in a conversation window. Folders are compressed before being sent. You can also drop multiple items to be sent.

      6. There is a "Hide" button located in the tray right click context menu that will hide all open windows. You can assign a Hotkey combination from Preferences. The default combination is Ctrl+H.

      7. s!mpL3 LAN Messenger uses port 60000 by default. You can change the port used by adding "Port=****" (without quotes, stars represent numbers) to the Config file described above. Communication is UDP.

      8. There is an Updater feature you can use to always have the latest available version, you only need an internet connection for that to work. You might need to clear your Internet Explorer Temporary Files in order for it to find an updated version.

      9. You can Hide + Lock s!mpL3 LAN Messenger so it'll require a password in order to "Appear". To enable this, go to the Security Preferences.

      10. Note that versions after 2.9.8.1 are not compatible with previous versions due to the encryption used being changed. I recommend using the latest version, or at least use the same version over the LAN.


      Important Notice:

      I will not be releasing the source code, however, I might share some parts of code if requested...
      If you choose to decompile this software, don't release the source code.
