List of all members.

Detailed Description

The base class of chat applications, such as file transfer and meetings. This class only provide the essentials like accept/cancel notifications.

External users of this class only have to use the start() and gotMessage() methods. The start() method causes KMess to send an invitation, and the messages received after that should be passed to the gotMessage() method. The gotMessage() method also detects whether KMess received an invitation.

The following paragraphs are worth reading if you're a new KMess developer:

To support both MSN4 "Mime-style" and MSN6 "P2P-style" invitations, two classes derive from this base class: The MimeApplication and P2PApplication class. Those two classes implement the missing gotMessage() and sendCancelMessage() methods.

To implement your own application handler (like file transfers, voice and webcam conversations), create a new class which derives from either 'MimeApplication' or 'P2PApplication' and implements the contactStarted* and userStarted* methods.

The contactStarted* methods provide a framework to implement the nessesairy dialogs for sessions started by the other contact ("chat buddy").

The userStarted* methods provide a framework to implement the nessesairy dialogs for sessions started by the user itself ("KMess user")

Also note how each Application subclass implements a "static QString getAppId()" method to return the Application GUID. This GUID is used in the invitation message.
