Does anyone know how I can clear the history from a chat session?

Take a look inside the chat component -
There is already a function to do it, but it looks like they didn't get to add an easy way to call it... What I did was modify the sendMessage function.

FCChatClass.prototype.sendMessage = function(mesg) {
if (this.message_txt.text == "/clear") {
} else {
this.nc.call("FCChat."+this.name+".sendMessage", null, this.message_txt.text);
this.message_txt.text = "";

Obviously this would get ugly if you wanted to send other commands, but it works. Another option would be to add a button to the chat and have it call "clearHistory". I worked another one a while back, that sent commands, but I lost the server-side modifications. :(
Basically, I stripped the "/" out, and then made a new function on the server-side chat.asc file called sendCommand. Then I added another mc to recieve the commands. Hard to explain here, but hopefully I'll be able to find the file (it's here somewhere) and explain better.

Thanks, psychlonex!

I'll give it a whirl. Please do post your server side modifications if you find them.

By the way, nice whiteboard. :)

Take care.
