7.1.7 Member Interface

Note: This feature is only available with VolanoChatPro. See [5.7] Member Database Support for information on providing membership services for your VolanoChatPro server.

Regular members

The member interface of the VolanoChat applet is created by setting the member parameter to true. The member entrance looks like this:

VolanoChatPro member entrance

The applet tag that embeds the applet shown above is:

<applet codebase="vcclient"
        archive="COM/volano/VolanoChat.jar"
        code="COM.volano.VolanoChat.class"
        width="500" height="120">
<param name="cabbase" value="COM/volano/VolanoChat.cab">
<param name="member"  value="true">
<param name="color"   value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="group"   value="Welcome to Volano!">
<param name="text"    value="english.txt">
</applet>

Dual Log-in

The member interface also supports members who are monitors and members who are administrators. For example, the member interface with additional monitor access is:

created with the tags:

<applet codebase="vcclient"
        archive="COM/volano/VolanoChat.jar"
        code="COM.volano.VolanoChat.class"
        width="500" height="125">
<param name="cabbase" value="COM/volano/VolanoChat.cab">
<param name="member"  value="true">
<param name="monitor" value="true">
<param name="color"   value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="group"   value="Welcome to Volano!">
<param name="text"    value="english.txt">
</applet>
Note: This should not be confused with the Member Monitor feature of VolanoChatPro. The Member Monitor feature allows each monitor to have their own name and password, while this feature still requires the use of a server wide password. See "Member Monitor" in [7.1.5] Monitor Interface.

The dual interface allowing a member to also authenticate as an administrator is:

VolanoChatPro member administrator entrance

created with the tags:

<applet codebase="vcclient"
        archive="COM/volano/VolanoChat.jar"
        code="COM.volano.VolanoChat.class"
        width="500" height="125">
<param name="cabbase" value="COM/volano/VolanoChat.cab">
<param name="member"  value="true">
<param name="admin"   value="true">
<param name="color"   value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="group"   value="Welcome to Volano!">
<param name="text"    value="english.txt">
</applet>
Note: There is no Administrator Monitor feature similar to the Member Monitor feature as described in [7.1.5] Monitor Interface.
