SFS2X User Properties Confusion

Postby Fishypants » 11 Feb 2015, 16:25

So, I am migrating my project from Smartfox 1.x to Smartfox 2x. I was using user properties a lot (I like them) to store custom data on the user objects.

I noticed on this page of the documentation:
http://docs2x.smartfoxserver.com/Overview/zones-room-architecture
Under Room Variables and User Variables section:
Previously in SmartFoxServer 1.x you had Room/User Variables and Room/User Properties. With SmartFoxServer 2X all custom data is handled via Room/User Variables.


Yet I noticed in the docs there are methods for setting, and getting user properties. They seem to work perfectly fine too.

So my question is, are the docs out dated and user properties were added at a later time, or are the docs correct and user properties will be depricated in a future release? I just want to make sure that I am not using something that might be gone later.

Thanks!

Hi, you are correct, properties do exist in 2X and we don't plan to remove them at any time, they are quite useful.

The statement you have quoted is to be take in its context, that is -> hidden Room/User variables. With this feature you can indeed mimic the same behavior of properties without having to deal with two different entities.

thanks
