Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux iOS Targets
class Instant Message MBS MacCocoa Plugin 7.1 ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No ❌ No Desktop only
Function: An IMService object represents a service available to a user through iChat, such as AIM, Jabber, and Bonjour.
This item is deprecated and should no longer be used.
Each IMService object represents one service available through iChat. Class methods such as allServices and serviceWithName will return these objects. Each object acts as the liaison to its single service, allowing you to access the individual user's global status, the user's list of acquaintances, and other information which can be integrated into your application.

You may want to subclass the InstantMessageMBS class to get events for changes.

All methods in this class will catch exceptions from Cocoa and raise a NSExceptionMBS instead. Using the message, name and reason properties you can see what was the reason for this exception. Please report if you find a method which does not handle exceptions correct.
