hi
 
 
To use it, you will need your chat's '''id''' and '''pw''', which can be found in  your chat's Extra features link.
 
 
 
==Usage==
 
 
 
You can use the API manually via a web page here: http://xat.com/web_gear/chat/SetScroller.php
 
 
 
'''Example''':
 
{{pre|<nowiki>http://xat.com/web_gear/chat/SetScroller.php?Message=Hello%20all!&id=12345&pw=1234567890</nowiki>}}
 
Or you can access the API using a programming language.
 
 
 
'''Example of how to access the API in PHP''':
 
{{pre|<nowiki>
 
$message = "Hello all!"
 
$id = 12345;
 
$pw = 1234567890;
 
 
 
$url = "http://xat.com/web_gear/chat/SetScroller.php?Message=".urlencode($message)."&id={$id}&pw={$pw}";
 
$ch = curl_init();
 
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
 
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
 
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 60);
 
$content = curl_exec ($ch);
 
print "$content\n";
 
curl_close ($ch);
 
</nowiki>
 
}}
 
 
 
'''Notes''':
 
 
 
*You are limited to 1 update every minute.
 
 
 
*The above uses the GET HTTP method, POST will also work.
 
 
 
*If you reset your chat you will need to update your software to go to the new ID and PW. If you change your group password you'll need to update to use the new pass.
