You could create a scema, or module that is called with each page load, that
checks for messages when the user is logged in.  So when the message is
stored into the databace, when the user loads the anypage while logged in it
checks for new messages, and if the user has messages then the window pops
up and the user can eather reply etc etc

Subject: [PHP] How to program very basic chat on PHP?

> Hello, this question is about dynamic communication between browsers.
> I have a site to meet people (PHP/Mysql).These people have their
> profiles and pictures stored into the site.
> I would like to make some kind of chat (very single chat), so when
> people log into system, I can trace their nicknames and list all active
> users onto some table.
> When someone wants talk to any other listed person, he just click on
> nick name, and some window will open on the other people browser's. This
> way, a single chat between two users could be stablished easily.
> Is this possible to program just using PHP?. I cant figure here how to
> control remotely the other user's browse (open chat window for instance)
> using only PHP.
> Thanks for any help
