sendSelfMessage( )

The sendSelfMessage API allows you to dynamically send message (one-way) from a particular user. This message will only appear in the senders chat box screen.

The API

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

sendSelfMessage($to,$message);

Sample Code

This API is ideally used in plugins to inform the user of activity completion. The sender will only receive the same message.

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

This API is now deprecated in CometChat 5.4. This function should be replaced with sendMessage($to,$message,2);
