C++ style functions with aw_event_set

Feb 27, 2000, 7:54am
An aw callback function must use the c style calling convention.

A class member function can only be used for that if the member function is declared as static.

Note that a static member function is not bound to any object of the class, and hence does not have
access to the member variables or other member functions since it does not have an object of its
own. Access is possible only if a pointer to the object is available, as if the static class member
function was not a member of that class.

Pbs. with Avatar_Add() in java. Any pbs with the C++ and Delphy version

Mar 8, 2000, 3:16pm
The only valid values in avatar_add should be session number and avatar name and the avatars
position (x, y, z, yaw, gesture).

anything else is probably random, especially citizen number and i.p. address.

But the avatar add function should be processed in sequence, not simultaneously. I think you must
not call any aw_sdk function that might have internal aw_wait() calls due to its synchronous nature,
causing intermittend avatar_add calls screwing your outer avatar_add value state.

simply extract session and name, store in some list or array, then return from your handler, and do
any citizen lookup by name, i.p. lookup per session, etc.. somewhere else in your program.

SDK 3.0 and Borland C++Builder 5

Apr 7, 2000, 3:17pm
If you happen to have an implib tool for your development system, it would be able to generate
the required import library ("aw.lib") from the aw.dll.

This is what was recommendet before, and i believe it was found also. As far as i recall, there is
some implib.exe, impdef.exe or similar around to help you out.

Since I work with MS Visual C++6.0 I do not have more information about it, but maybe you want to
try browsing the old sdk newsgroup posts to find out.

A richeditcontrol can basically be used like an edit control. Send text to its current
cursorposition using



SendMessage(myrichtctrlhwnd, WM_REPLACESEL,....);

use SetSel() etc.. for cursor placement.

A typical tab control does not offer support for its content.. look at it like a fancy border and

You can use a CPropertySheet (derived) class to open a properties like dialog, use CPropertyPage
derived classes
(generated from dialog resources using classwizard) for the pages... however that limits your
freedom a little (no extra stuff on your
"main" area (outside the tab control)

Try to look all the aforementioned keywords up in the MSDN to find details about their usage :)

Look up all the member function of CRichEditCtrl.. you will find SetParaFormat() and similar

Apr 27, 2000, 4:43pm
use the classwizard to add a member variable for it. its the same way for richedit controls as with
any other type of control.

using the Control -ID (IDC_CHATWINDOW) is possible to, however, its a little more difficult to use
SendMessage() on it yourself.

The CRichEditCtrl class is a wrapper which does provide some help in translating/reading/generating
all those structs you need to use for Rich Edit Controls. (such as PARAFORMAT etc..)


ps: The F1 key is your friend. Type "CRichEditCtrl" in any source window, place your caret (text
cursor) on it and hit F1. Read on on "CRichEditCtrl" and "CRichEditCtrl class members" Feel free to
browse more :)

You might be right here.. VC5 Classwizard supports CRichEditCtrl member classes but is not able to
insert them itself . it does not offer that choice (a bug, it was planned to do that), if I remember
correctly :)

Apr 28, 2000, 12:45pm
You can set the "current para format" or better the "current char format" before using ReplaceSel..
look for
SetSelectionParaFormat() of the CRichEditCtrl.

Re: AW improvements list @ http://tnlc.com/eep/aw/improve.html for those who may not know

Well, a bot cannot pick up the current object selection of the browser. Therefore you would have to
communicate in a differentway to the bot which object to manipulate.

This would either require pretty bad interface ("Enter exact position and model") or a good
interface providing some graphical choosing method, say, a 2d blueprint of the world or so.

But i have the feeling both is not what you intendet :)

aw_wait() passes the given value to the system call select(), which returns earlier than specified
if anything happens on the sockets its applied to. Since I doubt that aw_wai() issues another
select() for the remaining time, you can expect aw_wait() to return earlier whenever the is any
activity around your bot avatar. (earlier as in not even close to the given time).

Only in complete quiet areas it might reach the 1000. But even then do not expect accuracy from it.

A console app is basically a win32 application, which could use MFC: MFC
samples for sending email can be found at www.codeguru.com.

The other basic way would be to open a socket to an smtp server and send the
email data, which can be kept simple, say Subject, From, To, then a blank
line, then the email text, and then a single dot in an otherwise empty line.

This would mean you'd have to study SMTP commands first, such as HELO RCPT

This is how you can tell

Jan 15, 2001, 4:33pm

example: If "current" was a pointer to a struct "foobar" having a member
"next" being itself a pointer to "foobar" too, you can access like this:

struct foobar {
struct foobar *next;
} current;

current (the pointer, i.e. type is (struct foobar *) )

*current (the structure it points to, type is (struct foobar)

(*current).next (the member "next" of the struct described as (*current),
type is (struct foobar *)

current->next (the member next of the struct pointed to by "current", i.e.
same thing as above)

*(current->next) (the struct being pointed to by the member next of the
struct pointed to by "current), type (struct foobar);

etc etc... i hope these examples shed some light on the matter :)

Re: "aw_static.lib"

Jan 15, 2001, 4:24pm
Reply to "sdk" group since "beta" is read-only for me

This error is not really harmless. It means the code chunks you try to link
together ask for DIFFERENT conflicting runtime-libraries, as in
one code part asks for libc (static), while the other asks for msvcrt

If you ignore this error you really can get very very strange side effects.

To avoid this error you have to either

a) agree on a runtime library, say all use "libc", a library author has to
attach a note to his lib explaining his runtime choice or
b) tell the linker to ignore your project settings except for explicitly
given library names as in /NODEFAULT:xxx this may lead to
unresolved-externals error or aswell to odd side effects.

The aw_create() uses a void ** in order to be able to return an void *.
See these examples and comments:

void *instance; // pointer to "void", to unknown data

void **p_instance; // pointer to a pointer to void.

aw_create(....,&instance); // takes the address of the pointer-to-void
which generates a pointer-to-pointer-to-void

p_instance = &instance; // same here

aw_create(...,p_instance); // this would work too

Hope that helps :)

Hehe, i like that picture "This method works ok but it seems like going around the world to calculate earth's perimeter so..." :)

And i like your approach. I think that text edit controls simply do not support a message like EM_GETLASTVISIBLELINE, and therefore
your way seems to be perfectly valid.

I just had to comment on this: If this is your ThreadFunction, your thread won't wait 5 seconds. It will determine that 5 seconds
are not yet over and exit. I am not sure about your time calculation, so it might even call TimeFinish() but not after 5 seconds but
immediately. There is no loop in there or Sleep() or Waitxxx() which would cause the thread to spend some time anywhere.
