Chat Program With Databasing Features

2 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, just thought I would drop a small brick on my foot here.

I have plans to start designing a chat programming thank to inspiration

from all of the various chatting programs I've found on the forums.

Then I stumbled upon the database capabilities and such, thanks to a

project I was givin in my programming class. So I have now planned to

make some kind of interesting chat client and server, and give the server

databasing capabilities, so one can log in and not worry about people

stealing names or such. I think this should be quite fun, however I keep

having issues with the SQLite trying to work. I cannot seem to read from my

test.db file. So, I really don't know if I'm even writing to the created table or

even if the table itself has been created. So much fun indeed. Well, the

point of this thread was to warn newbies to programming to stay away from

awesomely fun programs, at least until you know a bit more what you are

doing. Don't be like me and get ahead of yourself. As for me, back to the basics.

Gonna have to create a chat server without databasing as well as a seperate

program to test out databasing. Back to the drawing board :whistle:

In over his head,

I would recommend checking out any downloads you can find in relation to AutoIt Smith. He has written some good client/server chat programs. The AutoIt-ITS project in my signature is a community project that for now has been put on hold, but may be of some interest to you as well.

It is definitely a good idea to stick to the basics when first starting out, but I always just dive in. I find that I learn better that way, as may be the case with you. The SQLite should come standard in the installation of AutoIt at this point as an include. I have used it successfully before they had it into the main release so it definitely should work "out-of-the-box". I am also awaiting the plugins in AutoIt to be completed. Once they have reached that maturity level I will write a plugin for AutoIt that will handle all of the hard work. I have already written most of the plugin, but I need to be able to return an array of the information, and I cannot right now.

Keep up the good work, and enjoy!
