Fairly simple project I'm just swamped with other work. The SDK can be downloaded for free or I can send it to you.
I would prefer VB6 code so I can learn from it but if C++ is faster that's OK too, I just don't know C++ as well. The SDK is basically two COM objects that allow you to do anything AIM software can do and interfaces you to the AIM network.
I need to create an AIM bot (free SDK from [url removed, login to view]) that will allow users to "check in/out" by sending an IM to the bot such as "sign me in" or "Ready for work". This is to let the bot know to store that user name in the database of people ready to work. Same is true for when someone goes offline/away or send a sign out IM such as "sign me out" or "Quit". The Bot should keep adding and removing people from the DB as needed so that it always knows who is ready and willing to work.
The bot will look for new pictures to be uploaded in a directory. The bot should store the name of the file in the DB and send the picture via DirectIM (a feature of AIM that allows you to send inline pictures without having to initiate a file transfer) to one of the users that is ready to work, it should cycle through the list of people ready to work to spread the work evenly among all those accepting work.
The bot will listen for a response from the person it sent the picture too. This response will be an aproval code or "Deny". The bot will store this response in the database as another feild in the record with the name of the file sent and the person who responded in another field. There will have to be some handling in here in case the user response is an auto response from their AIM client that they are away (they forgot to sign out and walked away from their PC).
Every loop of the program should check the status of the users and auto log them out if they are offline or away.
If No one is available to work it should write a value to the DB to reflect no workers available and when someone logs in change that bit in DB back to ready.
just a simple true/false result for 'Ready' feild is fine.
I for see a few tables.
....LoggedIn (String with AIM name of "ready" user)
....ID (key field)
....Filename (string containing name of file sent)
....AssignedTo (String, AIM user name file was sent to)
....ResultCode (string, response from User)
