How to make external emoticons on Lync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to make external emoticons(I got images, like jpeg, png, whatever I want to import), and I want to import to Microsoft Lync application.

    I heard that there is a Lync SDK for developing Lync application, but I don't know it can be used what I want to make.

    Does anybody have any idea use external emoticons in my chat on Lync?

  • You could definitely create a lync client using the lync SDK and replace certain placeholders like :mynewemoticon: with an image.

    You'd have to Listen to the conversation events and do the replace on the Conversation's MessageReceived events.

    Transferring images through the existing lync requires setting up a sort of tcp file transfer and is not really what you're after.

  • This capability isn't available natively, so you'd be designing your own add-on with the SDK. That said, I don't expect you're going to find a better way than just pasting your own images in.  I may be wrong.  I'd try posting in the dev forum instead to see if you have better luck: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?category=uc
