New version of Bopup IM Client SDK added support for VB.Net developers

Bopup IM Client SDK version 1.0.2 has been released and now available for download. This version added new IServerClientVB interface, structures and defines which are especially designed for VB.Net developers.


Since our existing IServerClient interface is primarily designed for Microsoft Visual C++ programmers then it makes hard to use our IM SDK because many of data and types must be marshaled and casted between Microsoft Visual Basic .Net source code and the interface's structures and methods. The IServerClientVB solves this problem because it is Automation-compatible interface and operates with standard VB data types such as String, Array, etc.

For more information on using this interface and it's methods refer to Online Help documentation available at http://www.bopup.com/onlinehelp/sdk/vbnet_developer_guide/interfaces/iserverclientvb/overview.html

The new version of Bopup IM Client SDK added sample code in VB.Net in addition to Visual C++ 6.0 sample projects that show how to connect to the communication server, send/receive various of data to/from the IM server, transmit and get instant messages. Develops and add IM & chat functionality with VB.Net environement in a few minutes!
