Ok,
I have finished the Fake MSN Messenger done with C#.. please try it and give me your feed back.... And now it is not illegal for some reason..(you will know after checkin it out.)...


I am not sure wheathe it will run on systems without .NET framework installed.. Any way give me your feedback..


Thanx
Vasanth

Note:- The zip file contains a rar file which contains the pogram( Had to do this since just ziping it did not bring it below 100 KB and the cboard would not accept a rar file.)

If any one has not noticed.. I have made it load the tray icon.. I am planning to add menus to the tay icon as it is in the original...


And didnt any one have problems with the prog.. Those of you who did not have the .NET installed..

Seriously, How did you made that? With something like VB?
Or did you use the MSN source with it? (i don't think the source
for MSN is availeble, But i'm still dazzled with how genuine it
looks!). C# is impressive.

Yes i my self was amazed with what we could do with C#.. It provides such a rapid development platform... C# feels like a marriage between VB and VC++ in terms of feature.. Adn i had no MSN source.. but i built it with the already available icons and images in the messenger...

I still have to create Mouse over for the sign in button.. I did that but there was a huge delay, so removed it..

And the special key is F12 not F11 as it displays in the end..

Ohh looks like that the .NET frame work is not installed on your PC.. You need it to run Apps written using the .NET technology.. It is free.. you can download it from

http://microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=4C1B6B0B-439E-4DB4-849A-B72416F40300&displaylang=en

The direct link to the file is http://download.microsoft.com/download/NETFrameworkRedistributable/Install/1.1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/dotnetfx.exe

But it is 23 MB.. thats a lot.. But i think it is better yyou download it since many applications that will be released now will need .NET..(may be they will package it with .NET frame work in the begining).

so you can only play pranks on friends with .net framework? I don't have it installed either therefore I couldn't use it :(

I'm sure it looked nice however.

Ok for those of you who do not have the .NET frame work.. here is the picture.. The one on the left is the fake and the one on the right is the original...

It doesn't look good on all platforms.

You must use transparent backgrounds.

I'm using Windows XP with the blue theme.

I was going to ask for some screen shots since I dont have the .NET framework.

That looks wicked. Nice job!

I dont think I can agree with that statement, just because you make make smothing fast doesnt mean its powerful, has nothing todo with how powerful it is..
Also, although it is nice that you made a look-a-like it seems pointless. I bet it could be seen as fraud of some kind. Posting it here may not have been the wisest of things todo. I dont know what skill was gained by making this, knowing how to clone a UI(user interface) could only be used to trick somone(IMO) do you have plans to steal passwords around the word ? maybe scamming people? I dont see why everyone is so impressed but, thats jsut my 2cents.

Dont you dare to say that.. Dint you use the program.. It gives out a clear message that it was a fake after the user enters his user name and password... And the program does not mail it back to me or post it on a web site.. Dont you ever coment on peoples work without seeing what it actually is... If i wanted to steal password i would have made it mail it back to me and would not have warned the user that he got fooled by the fake MSN..... And do you think the MODS here are sensless to allow a post to grow to this lenght if it was fo hacking purpose...

And about the powerfull thing... How do you define the term powerfull. In corporate sense it means the speed at which you can deploy qualiy solutions... And that is what C# provides.. And it is powerfull because in the near future you will see that CLR(Common Language Runtime) written for many devices and platforms.. Like Java enabled you will have .NET enabled... Though C++ is powerfull in the raw sense it is not when it comes to Solution Development that companies get... (Not arguments here please...)

ANd .NET GB(Garbage Collection) is one of the biggest features according to me.. That saves a lot of time.. The option of writing unmanaged code is also good..


You just seem to jump to conclusion that it is hacker stuff.. My sincere request to you is never speak out S*** untill you completely know what it is...

I knew all of this.
I know C# is a weapon made by MS to kill Java and inturn put SunMicrosystems out of business, that is why XP didnt come with full Sun Java support, MS is simply taking over. I'm sorry, I cant support it.
and Powerful, I see ASM as powerful, it can do anything. I see C powerfull it can do alot. C# is not powerful. the .NET framework is jsut the same as VB runtimes or MFC runtimes, they jsut renamed them and marketing differently. Please, noone say he used Hack wrong or anything, im getting tired of people fighting over the meaning of hack.
C# is not powerful, please noone start a flame war saying it is powerful and yelling at me ect.
And I dont know what you would gain from copying the UI other than practice for someday making an altered version or maybe copying a UI for somthing else like Tax forms online ect.. I didnt say this had to be used to steal passwords (although you did say you made a version to do just that, which alone is lillegal.) copying the UI is fraud. please dont assume I dont understand things next time, Im not a moron.
Do you really think the garbage collection make sit more powerful? it allows you to be lazy, you may aswell program in QB, your almsot there as it is, I dont think QB is a bad language but its power it doesnt come close to C/--/++ ASM Pascal (I can go on).

Well I dont want to start a flame war here.. Powerfull means different things to different people.. According to me powerfull means Minumum time required to provide good solutions to problems and i think that is what C# does.. And i am not against any corporate Sun , Microsoft etc.. So what if MS wants to Sun to go out og business.. If Java is better ultimately it will triump else .NET will triupm... So the market will decide it and the company which can sustain will sustain... ASM is powerfull i agree.. but not bst suited to develop day to day applications.. Even though i dont know newer languages i am ready to adopt.. And i want to learn things that help me develop solutions rapidly... Ok lest leave this powerfull stuff where it is..

what do you mean by this...
I dont gain anytin by it but the pure pleasure that i could do an MSN look alike UI in my first go at C#.....
And yea rite i am practising to copy Tax Forms etc and you shall be my first customer :D.

And if look alikes are illegal what about XP looks for linux etc.. which are done by big companies.. EVen MAc looks for windows..
If you have any problem with this you are at the liberty to report me to who ever you please.. The FBI what ever.... my Nvame is

Eh? You mean XP looks like OS X (which I suppose it could, if you squinted and looked sideways) or the fact that Apple had GUIs before MS adopted them? Oh, wait, Apple got that idea from Xerox. Try again.

Funny that, I wonder what BMW's response would be if you asked them if they would like Mercedes Benz (or Daimler Crysler for the pedantic ones) to go out of business?

First, dont waste peoples time (namly mine.) by posts like the one that says Im a waste of air, Im sorry but it only shows how childish you really are, noone needs it.
And this program cant be SOO great considering he didnt compensate for Windows Themes. Which is actually easily done. its harder to make it like he did than it is to make it go along with the themes, I see no reason why this thread is not locked other than maybe the people who are in charge of that favor C# and want more Bashing of me.
Final thought:

You boggle the mind - in one line you tell people not to call you names, and in the next you call them 5 year olds. You are my new favorite poster.

Allows you to be lazy? Hah. It removes coding redundancies and reduces the risk of the programmer making an error. Why reinvent the wheel everytime you want to make a program? Use a tried and true solution.
"Powerful" is a relative term when it comes to programming languages. For some reason you seem to think the most precise = the most powerful.

To me, it sounds like you're jealous.

The only etc thing i had to do was make the image transparent to do that.. Any way... i think we are all wasting our time on some silly thing... And I agree that I am not such a great programmer... and I agree that I don’t know everything under the sun...

If I apologising to you would make you stop... Then I am really sorry.” and you are right I am wrong”. Now let’s end this here… See you around.. :D
