Chat bubble database error

Postby zachofthegolden1 » 02 Jan 2013, 17:42

Hello,

I have connected my flash avatar chat action script 2 to a database it works and respond correctly. The problem is that the chat bouble doesent even show when i send messages. Other users can see my messages except the person who is sending it. I downloaded the new api from sfs website 1.6.9 this time other users can see messages and when i send a message it shows the bubble and says undefined for me but others users see the message i am sending. I have seached but cannot find a solution to this problem. Thank you for taking time to read this i am really stuck.

Also if i change custom login to false it works fine but when custom login is set to true it never works for the person sending the message but see able for the person who is receiving it

Done some Debugging and traces ok the user who is sending the message doesn't see the message displayed in the bubble

so i can see messages from other users but i cannot see mine as it says undefined to anyone sending the message


this is the debug

Code: Select all

[Sending]: <msg t='sys'><body action='pubMsg' r='75'><txt><![CDATA[324324]]></txt></body></msg>

[Received]: <msg t="sys"><body action="pubMsg" r="75"><user id="94" /><txt>324324</txt></body></msg>
UserObject -- [object Object]
user id 94
Message recieved from room The Hall
Name of sender: zachofthegolden

Hi,

I remember the ChatBubble having some issues with the timer which controls the amount of time it is shown. Please check its code.
Basically the error was that sometimes the interval wasn't cleared, so I suggest to add a clearInterval() before setting a new one.

Code: Select all

function deactivate()
{
clearInterval(timer)
timer = setInterval(closeBubble, 8900)
}
 
function closeBubble()
{
bubble._visible = false

}



its always been that but if custom login is et to true bubbles are undefined for the client but other users messages are readable

hum.. If you trace the bubble it returns undefine d? And can you confirm that the instance name is correct?
If you open the default avatarChat that comes with sfs and enable the custom login feature, does that issue also happen?

Thanks

If I was to set custom login to false the chat bubbles work perfectly but if i was to change custom login to true then the chat bubble shows but the text decides to say undefined for the client sending the message but if another use was in the room and they was to send a message you can read what they are sending.

How are you setting the text message? Can you show the code you.re using?
And can that bug be reproduced on the default non-edited AvatarChat example?

Allright. I'll try to reproduce and fix it tomorrow, and post the solution.
Sorry for the delay on the responses

Tomorrow I'll test enabling the customLogin on avatarChat with a simple extension that processes the login, to see how the Bubble is affected.
Next week I'll have more time again to come to the forums :)

Well, I edited the avatarCat.fla, added the necessary code for handling the custom login, created a simple extension which is responsible for handling the login, and everything's working as expected. So the custom login isn't the cause of the problem.
If the current client isn't showing the bubble, I'd say that you're having a problem accessing the client's avatar. Please double check your code
