Sends a chat message to a particular chat session
View list of data type meanings
long ChatID(long ID, BSTR Message, BOOL Emote);
This sends a "say" or "emote" to the with that Chat ID.
Each call is identified by its "chat ID" - each chat session has a unique ID, which starts at one, and is incremented by one, per world.
You can use GetChatList to find a list of chat IDs that is current.
You can use ChatGetID to find the chat ID corresponding to a particular chat name.
If the "emote" parameter is zero (false) then you will "say" the message, otherwise you will emote it.
If you "say" the message, it will appear like this on that person's client:
Nick chats to you, 'hi there'
If you "emote" the message, it will appear like this on that person's client:
To you, Nick laughs
The different message (compared to ChatEverybody or ChatGroup) is so you can tell the message was addressed to you personally.
The message will be sent even if you have set the "ignore" flag on that person, as presumably you want to override it, if you are addressing a message to them directly.
Available in MUSHclient version 3.37 onwards.
