I agree the way some old scripts change the PSM could be annoying, but people will stop using those automatically. There are plenty of good uses for PSM-changing scripts WLM-2011 style, push tweets to it for example.

If it does change focus to the contact list though, there's going to be a lot of annoyed people that will suddenly find the huge message they were typing never got put into the chat window =/

There you got a point.. But letting it fail silently won't break the scripts completely and keeps focus to the window it belongs to.

I see, for some reason I thought totonf meant PSMs have a different focus in WLM2011, as in PSMs are now used in another way / show up in the Windows Live social stream :p... Although that is still true too.

But yes, changing focus to another window is not good, would need to find another way without changing any focus.

The solution!
I know this thread is dead since one month but I just wanted to help people who encounter the same problem.

Since I didn't found a trick in any website I tried, I just searched myself and found out how to change your personal message from a script (sample in the end) :


- If you just need to change the personal message in the ChatWndSendMessage event :
   Return the text "/psm [your message here]" and it will be updated.


- If you need to change the personal message in any other function or event :
   Send a special message to a chat window using the ChatWnd.SendMessage(string) function.
   This special message should be unique and the probability that the user types it should be negligible.
   This will trigger a ChatWndSendMessage event.

   After some tests, I found that if you just return "/psm [your message here]" from a script-sent message, it will only send "[your message here]" to your contact and never update the personal message.

   What you have to do is to catch your special message using a condition, and return "/psm /psm [your message here]" (no, that's not a typo). This is just dumb but it works.


Here is the sample code (copy in a new script to test) :
code:
var strSpecialMessage = "@~ or anything"; // Special message to use to send a message in any function.

function OnEvent_ChatWndSendMessage(ChatWnd, Message)
{
    if (Message == strSpecialMessage)
    {
        return "/psm /psm [your message here]";
    }
   
    else if (Message == "NOW")
    {
        ChatWnd.SendMessage(strSpecialMessage);
        return "";
    }
   
    else return Message;
}

This code will change your personal message to "[your message here]" when you send the exact message "NOW" in any chat window. But you can trigger it from any function if you change the code.

All you need is a chat window... if your script isn't related to a chat window, then you'll have to make sure there are opened chat windows, and if not, try to open one, send the message and then close it immediately.
I don't know how to close it, though. Maybe with an external library function which takes in parameter the handle of the window. Well... that's complicated.

:O Doesn't that mean there is also a command parsing bug in Plus!?....

This said, your use of the OnEvent_ChatWndSendMessage to work around the PSM limitaton is interesting, but can't you just use oChatWnd.SendMessage("/psm blahblah") or oChatWnd.SendMessage("/psm /psm blahblah") in that case?
(Can't test because I don't run WLM 2011 atm)

What most people do:
Interop.Call("User32", "SendMessageW", oChatWnd.Handle, 0x10 /*WM_CLOSE*/, 0,0);

Or in a more gracefull/safer way:
Interop.Call("User32", "PostMessageW", oChatWnd.Handle, 0x0111 /*WM_COMMAND*/, 0x9C51, 0);

Or with the use of Plus! scripting functions:
oChatWnd.SendMessage("/close")

---

However, note that using the SendMessage function might not always work. You always need to check if the typing box is actually enabled and if it can recieve commands (using oChatWnd.EditChangeAllowed)

PS: instead of using a chatwindow, you might also wanna try sending the string to the word wheel edit box (the search box) in the contact list. However, that can't be done directly with pure scripting though. You probably need some Windows API for that or worse Active Accessebility.

O.P. RE: Why Plus 5 don't suport Messenger.MyPersonalMessage?
Plausible solution, but it is unacceptable to lose focus of the window.

Discussion still open. :(

Are you using Windows Live Messenger 2009 or 2011?
