The following example demonstrates how to add a chat action that appears only on windows where the user is a Help Desk Agent. The action appears on the menu as Show User Type and opens a popup window that indicates a current user of queue_agent.

  • Action Name: Show User Type
  • Active: Select the check box.
  • Order: 100
  • Client Show Condition:
    answer = g_chat.getChatType() == 'queue_agent';
  • OnClick Action Script:
    alert('The current user is: ' + g_chat.getChatType());
