VB and Winsocks programming
can anyone suggest a good reading for winsocks programming using VB
i want to program a chat s/w for LAN with file transfer facility.....and no server/client type will be able to detect who is online and who is not.........
well the 1st prob is that of multiple connections on single winsocks....well i thought of creating a new winsocks control at run time........and give it a different port..but how can i know that another application is not using the same port..........
second thing that i want to discuss is that.i want to use single chat form..that is when the user will click on a listed username he will be presented with a form to enable him to chat.....for that purpose i want to use single form and load load a new from this form at ru time...but that form will also contain the code...let us say to make the text colorful....so how can i write a code that will change such properties at run time............

wwww.planetsourcecode.com has quite a few multi-user winsock projects available for download... or try googling... "VB Winsock Multiple user file transfer" or something like that?
/edit-> if your pretty new to VB then i'd suggest taking it slow... try to get two winsock client/servers to talk first...
although a decent start for winsock...
use the Data Arrival method...
inside the Winsock1.DataArrival method...
Data_Var = Winsock1.getdata()
frmMAIN.text1.seltext = Data_Var & Char$(13)
to send data first connect;
Winsock1.connect hostname, port
then make sure to see if Winsock1.state = sckConnected (or 7)
before sending any data Winsock1.send or Winsock1senddata....
not sure right now- don't have vb with me...
i'll read up a bit and try to help ya out more- pm me if ya need anything else
yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...
