sendMessage( )

sendMessage API allows you to send messages in one-on-one chat.

The API

sendMessage($to,$message,$dir = 0) // $dir can be 0, 1 or 2

Sample Code

1. Setting $dir to 0 will send the message to both the sender and receiver. This is the default behavior of sendMessage.

include_once ('cometchat/cometchat_init.php');
sendMessage($to,'€™Hello!!'€™,0);

2. Setting $dir to 1 allows you to dynamically send message (one-way) to a particular user. This message will not appear in the senders chat box screen.

include_once ('cometchat/cometchat_init.php');
sendMessage($toID,"Would you like to have a Pizza?",1);

3. Setting $dir to 2 allows you to dynamically send message (one-way) from a particular user. This message will only appear in the senders chat box screen.

Note: The $to is the user’€™s ID of the chat box and not the user to whom this message is being sent.

include_once ('cometchat/cometchat_init.php');
sendMessage($toID,"has successfully sent Pizza request.",2);
