I am looking for a script that I can integrate into a page that will perform an "instant messenger" style popup similar to section "A" in the attachment.
It is critical that I am able to use a flash file (swf) in the maximized IM window. I will be replacing the "chat" area of this window with my own flash chat console. It is also critical that this work be cross browser compatible and thoroughly tested prior to delivery.
The screenshot is from the free member area of "speeddate.com." Create a free account and check the code yourself.
I don't care how you produce the code as long as it works (error free), is not encrypted, does not attempt to connect to any other site, and is easily able to integrate into any page I wish to use it on.
The settings / options that I require are:
1. Ability to trigger "new message" (interval seconds)
2. The chat area should appear maximized (as shown) or minimized (just in toolbar - see "Erika" in toolbar) waiting for the user to click to maximize. (Boolean setting)
3. Easy ability to modify color scheme and display images such as photo thumbnails, etc. (CSS)
