Get text in chat window and chat too

I need to get the text data from an MSN Messenger window. I have my sample window on my PC and I want to get the text in the chat window of MSN Messenger chat. I also want to chat from my window. In other words, how do I find a solution to get a text message to my sample window from the MSN chat window? And, at the same time, be able to chat from my window to another person who has logged on to MSN. If I understand your question correctly, I think you are going to need to do some additional development work. Sounds like you have a custom app that you have built and now you want to pipe or redirect the text in an MSN Messenger chat window into your sample app. You can do this but it requires you to turn your sample app into a full-blown MSN Messenger client. To do this, you will need to first obtain the Exchange 2000 SDK, which includes an Instant Messaging SDK. The IM SDK includes everything you need to build your own IM client. You can download the IM SDK from .
