So ive made a tool bar for my website, and the tool bar allows me to add in custom html gadgets. What i want to do is add in a feature that lets a user know when they have a new pm message. How would i go about doing this? Where would i start ?

td id="usermenu">
      <{if 
$xoops_isadmin}>
        <
class="menuTop" href="<{$xoops_url}>/admin.php"><{$block.lang_adminmenu}>a>
        <
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/user.php"><{$block.lang_youraccount}>a>
      <{else}>
        <
class="menuTop" href="<{$xoops_url}>/user.php"><{$block.lang_youraccount}>a>
      <{/if}>
      <
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/edituser.php"><{$block.lang_editaccount}>a>
      <
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/notifications.php"><{$block.lang_notifications}>a>
      <{if 
$block.new_messages 0}>
        <
class="highlight" href="<{$xoops_url}>/viewpmsg.php"><{$block.lang_inbox}> (<span style="color:#ff0000; font-weight: bold;"><{$block.new_messages}>span>)a>
      <{else}>
        <
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/viewpmsg.php"><{$block.lang_inbox}>a>
      <{/if}>
      <
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/user.php?op=logout"><{$block.lang_logout}>a>
    td>
  tr>
table>


I'm sure you can use the second if statement

Hi,

you will have to put something like this in your theme file:

Quote:
<{if $xoops_isuser}>

<{php}>
GLOBAL $xoopsUser;
$pm_handler =& xoops_gethandler('privmessage');
$uid = $xoopsUser->getVar('uid');
$criteria = new CriteriaCompo(new Criteria('read_msg', 0));
$criteria->add(new Criteria('to_userid', $uid));
$msgcount = $pm_handler->getCount($criteria);
$GLOBALS['xoopsTpl']->assign('msgcount', $msgcount);
<{/php}>

<{if $msgcount > 0}>
You have <{$msgcount} new message border="0" />
<{else}>
 You have no new messages
<{/if}>

<{/if}>


this uses diferent image to display if there are new messages or not with alt text "You have X new messages" or "You have no new messages"

You may put php part in a smarty plugin and keep logik and presentation separated.

or it can be this instead

<{xoInboxCount assign=pmcount}>
            <
a href="<{xoAppUrl /viewpmsg.php}>">
            <{if 
$pmcount}>
                <
img src="<{xoImgUrl images/inbox-full.png}>" alt="Inbox (<{$pmcount}>)" title="You have <{$pmcount}> unread messages" /> Inbox (<{$pmcount}>)
            <{else}>
                <
img src="<{xoImgUrl images/inbox.png}>" alt="Inbox" title="Show your inbox content" /> Inbox 
            
<{/if}>
            a>

Okay so this code:

<{if $xoops_isuser}>

<{
php}>
GLOBAL 
$xoopsUser;
$pm_handler =& xoops_gethandler('privmessage');
$uid $xoopsUser->getVar('uid');
$criteria = new CriteriaCompo(new Criteria('read_msg'0));
$criteria->add(new Criteria('to_userid'$uid));
$msgcount $pm_handler->getCount($criteria);
$GLOBALS['xoopsTpl']->assign('msgcount'$msgcount);
<{/
php}>

<{if 
$msgcount 0}>
<
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/viewpmsg.php"><img src="<{$xoops_imageurl}>images/prvmsg_on.jpg" alt=You&nbsp;have&nbsp;<{$msgcount}>&nbsp;new&nbsp;message border="0" />a>
<{else}>
&
nbsp;<a href="<{$xoops_url}>/viewpmsg.php"><img src="<{$xoops_imageurl}>images/prvmsg_off.jpg" alt="You have no new messages" border="0" />a>
<{/if}>

<{/if}>


or this code:

<{xoInboxCount assign=pmcount}>
            <
a href="<{xoAppUrl /viewpmsg.php}>">
            <{if 
$pmcount}>
                <
img src="<{xoImgUrl images/inbox-full.png}>" alt="Inbox (<{$pmcount}>)" title="You have <{$pmcount}> unread messages" /> Inbox (<{$pmcount}>)
            <{else}>
                <
img src="<{xoImgUrl images/inbox.png}>" alt="Inbox" title="Show your inbox content" /> Inbox 
            
<{/if}>
            a>

The code I posted (and the code from snow77) should go in theme.html file in theme/YOUR_SITE_THEME folder.

I do not understand what you mean by "theme of the gadget im making" ... Is it "template for the module I'm making" (there is diference between theme and template)?

The second set of code posted by snow77 should work. The new xoInboxCount is a new Smarty subroutine that will get the count of PMs for you. If you use that code in anything after 2.0.15 then it should work just fine for you. Earlier versions will require PHP code.
