Hi,
Is this possible to use the history of MSN messenger or to import that into aMSN?

Thanks,
Karti

We don't use the same format so it's not possible.

I think it's possible, just code it!

Thanks @Fabioamd87 & @billiob.
Can you please guide me to the coding, or any place where I can post a request? I am using MSN for business chat so I need to keep the chat for reference.

I don't think if there's a documentation about the way we log our history. However, you can have a look at the file called loging.tcl to know how it works.

But i don't know how to get the history from WLM.

it's an xml file, should be easy to understand.. then maybe directly using the API from aMSN's loging.tcl  if the converter was made into a plugin...

It is possible to make a converter, however there are design issues with aMSN's logging system that prevent us from making a fully working solution. WLM's message log is in XML format. The log can be processed with an XSL stylesheet that is generated by WLM when the first log is created.
The XML log looks like so:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type='text/xsl' href='MessageLog.xsl'?>
<Log FirstSessionID="1" LastSessionID="1">
<!-- Example Sent Message -->
<Message Date="23/09/2008" Time="10:28:53" DateTime="2008-09-23T09:28:53.990Z" SessionID="1">
<From><User FriendlyName="Local User"/></From>
<To><User FriendlyName="Remote User"/></To>

<Text Style="font-family:FONT_FAMILY; color:#HEXCOLOR; ">sent message body</Text>
</Message>

<!-- Example Received Message -->
<Message Date="23/09/2008" Time="10:29:05" DateTime="2008-09-23T09:29:05.412Z" SessionID="1">
<From><User FriendlyName="Remote User"/></From>
<To><User FriendlyName="Local User"/></To>

<Text Style="font-family:FONT_FAMILTY; color:#HEXCOLOR; ">received message body</Text>
</Message>
</Log>

The Log is saved under the name (not account, just the username) with a numeric suffix, and .xml as the extension. It is saved by default in the "My Recieved Files" directory under "History".

Implementing this style of log should be simple. However aMSN doesn't retain enough information with it's current log format to allow us to make a complete log (font-family isn't logged). Also, there are some issues with the way the From & To portions of the Message elements would need to be handled. In aMSN we log the follwing for a sent message: friendly_name, message, time, color. The simplest way of building the To/From lists, would be to make a list of users in the chat, and add/remove users as they enter/leave it (in the log). This method however falls down when the users nickname is changed. As then we have no (simple) way of knowing for sure who has changed their nick (as it isn't logged), and so our list is no longer valid.

If anyone can think of a better method to do this (other than re-writing aMSN's logging system) please let me know.

Is there any news about this feature?
Is it possible to import old msn logs into aMSN ?

Est-ce qu'il y a du nouveau à propos de cette fonctionnalité?
Est-il possible d'importer de vieux logs de conversation MSN dans aMSN ?

Je ne suis pas sur de comprendre le problème du log aMSN... est-ce une problème de clé primaire?

Merci !!

aucune nouvelle, et le probleme c'est juste que le log de amsn est pas aussi complet que celui de WLM! Donc une conversion amsn->MSN serait pas tres facile, mais une conversion MSN -> aMSN se ferait sans probleme.. faudrait juste que quelqu'un ait du temps pour le faire.

MSN -> aMSN (le seul sens qui compte!)
Haaaa je sais bien que j'y arriverais! Mais en combien de temps..!? lol..

En résumé, quels sont les outils à utiliser pour programmer (j'imagine le pluggin) et où est la documentation sur le formatage des logs de aMSN?
Et je vais commencer par faire une analyse de tout ça et vous revenir avec un résultat éventuellement Wink

Salutations!

Salut, desole j'avais rate ton message d'avant...
alors pour la doc des plugins, le meilleur moyen est de voir des plugins existants et lire leur code!
http://www.amsn-project.net/wiki/PluginDevelopersGuide
http://www.amsn-project.net/wiki/Dev:Plugin_Developer_Guide
http://www.amsn-project.net/wiki/Dev:UsefulFunctionsForPlugins

pour le format des logs, suffirait de lire le code dans loging.tcl et de regarder directement a quoi ressemblent les logs!
Bonne chance.
