    So, you have little .NET experience and you want to implement a real-time, multi-user, distributed application? Your best bet in all honesty is to hire someone.

    I'm an intermediate .NET programmer who's been doing this for a couple years and there's no way I would attempt this. There are a lot of different jobs to do. That's why it's usually large development teams that tackle stuff like this.

    If you can't hire someone to build it for you, the most sensible thing to do is do some research into the applications that are already built and available. Some are open source, some are available for a small registration fee, some are full blown communication applications that you typically pay a monthly fee to provide the service on your website. Once you have an idea what's available you can decide how much functionality you're willing to pay for.

    If you're REALLY serious about building your own chat application, get ready. You're doing the equivalent of building a house all by yourself. It's going to take a long time, and while it will be cheaper than having it done for you, it's still going to cost a chunk of change. You'll need to get web hosting, and probably a domain name. You'll want to upgrade to asp.net 2.0 or you'll be programming everything old school, and that's like building a house with one hand tied behind your back. You can download it with Visual Web Developer Express at www.asp.net, and best it's free). Then you're going to get a couple of good ASP.NET books. Exactly which ones would be good I don't know. Thumb through the table of contents and look for books that have information about communications, maybe even an example of how to build a chat room program if you're lucky.
    Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.

    prietysweety: I think you really need to learn when to decline a job as beyond your skill set.

    So you will take longer than estimated, presumably charging more to deliver what will probably a substandard product?

    I would decline the job rather than risk that myself.

    I know this reply your reading here pertains more to sharepoint stuff but i had to recently look for a web part chat and stumbled across this link. I got it up and tweaked it a bunch and it works really well but you'd have to change the functionality a bit on this one since the chat items dump into a list in sharepoint by default. Anyhow, it's in C# and javascript and this is the link. You could at least download the code and check that out. Good luck with your chats, it seems like you have a hill to climb on this one.
