Back to Chat Chat Room Help

Welcome to the browser-based chat rooms at children with DIABETES. If you've never used these rooms before, here's how they work:

  1. You start chatting on the Login Page. There you:

    • Type in your name and e-mail address (optional)
    • Select a chat room from the Room list
    • Select how many messages to Show at a time
    • Select how often the message page will automatically Update
    • Click on the Enter the Chat button

  2. You'll then see the chat room page, in which you can enter messages and see what others are saying. In the chat room page are:

    • Your name, in the first box
    • Your e-mail address, if you typed it in, in the second box
    • The message entry area, under your name and e-mail address
    • The Chat Help link that displays this page
    • The Send / Get Msgs button, which you click to send a message or manually update the message list
    • The Room list, which shows the room you're in. When you select a new room, you'll automatically be sent there if your browser supports JavaScript. If it doesn't, select a room and click the Send / Get Msgs button.
    • The Show counter, which selects how many chat messages to display in the window below. You can select from 10 to 50 messages to display.
    • The Update counter, which selects how often to update the message window. Updating of the message window is independent of writing messages, so you can type in a long message and it won't be interrupted by the update in the window below. If you're on a fast connection, you can update the messages as fast as every 30 seconds. If you're on a slow connection, you might want to update less often.
    • The message window, which shows the chat messages.

  3. You can add the following graphics to your chat messages:
       (a happy face) by typing in :-)
       (a sad face) by typing in :-(
       (a surprised face) by by typing in :-o
