Web IM Control browser compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm not sure if where I should post this question, but here looks most appropriate.

    I realized that the Web IM Control does not seem to work for Oracle, Google Chrome, and Safari (windows). Is this a bug? Is there anything we can do to make it work?

  • What exactly are you having problems with?
    You can program your own Web Messenger control using the API set that can call from your own code. The only control that you don't have full access to is the sign-on control. The rest of it is up to you to code yourself. This might get around your problem. There are numerous articles on how to program against the WM API on http://www.liveside.net
    As stated in the documentation, the WM control is only compatible with the following browsers :-
  • Internet Explorer 6 or greater
  • Firefox 1.5, Firefox 2.0 on Windows
  • Firefox 1.5, Firefox 2.0 on Mac OS X
