Hi Guys,



I have a mini instant messenger going and Im struggling to
find out how to add buddies where the message comes through as some
kind of pop up alert asking the user to accept the request or
decline it. Is this possible with flex data services and just flex
using the producer and consumer? Is there some line I need to add
to my chat destination in my web inf? . If anyone can point me in
the direction of a tutorial or provide a sample it will be greatly
appreciated

Hi,



You can try setting the headers of the message. You can set a
header like "userrequest" and check for this header when the
message is received on the client side and do the necessary stuff
like showing the pop up asking for the user to accept or not. If
the user accepts you can may be then manage the list of buddies on
the client/server based on your requirement.



The catch is to use the headers to differentiate message
types.



Hope this helps.
