Messenger (Code Request):

UPDATE 10/31/01:

This bid request bidding close date will be extended until a bid meets the project's criteria.

Ok everybody, listen up. There is a major change in the job description, due to recent information, as well as messenger coding already done. So read very carefully!

I have need of CODE and Sample Program, that will use a RichTextBox (x2), one for entering messages and one for showing messages entered.

I need the program/code to allow people to type in irc colored messages as well as emoticons. The message richtextbox needs to show the colored messages as well as emoticons in the appropiate places. Also, I have seen tons of code on PSC that shows how to insert emoticons (pictures) into richtextbox, however ALL OF THEM opens some sort of program, apon entering the picture in the message box. This is unacceptable. So if your code does that, it can not be used.

I realized that this has quite changed the description of the project. If you feel that you can not, or will not do this project, just decline your bid, thank you.

Complete and fully-functional working sample in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

Please note that the maximum bid has changed.

Special Conditions / Other:
Sample needs to be finished by 2 weeks of bid acceptance. Your full name will be placed in the credits as "Programmer".

Serious bids only.

My past seven years experience assures you of the best quality and less time. I've developed several messengers which are ICQ Clone, MSN Messanger Clone, Yahoo clone and lot more. There's facility of sending files, greeting cards, emotions in icon forms and lot more. My favorite subject is Winsock thru which i've created over 1000 applications like chat, messengers, firewalls, IP scanner and lot more. I'll take 50% for prototype and 50% on completion. I'd submit code and executables.
