Hi all,

After several attempts I managed to integrate a library for CodeIgniter extract hotmail contacts and so a user can send invitations for example, just how does facebook, hi5 .. etc.

These libraries are made on the basis phpListgrab and MSNPauth the Daniel Winter.

In this moment, i use two libraries.. but later y make only one whit other sources.

You can use this library.. sending the email and password beetwen ajax and return a message for the result the process.

so.. go it!!

Controller


function import_msn()
    {    
        $this->load->model('modemsn','import_msg');
        if($this->import_msg->grabber_msn()){
        echo $this->set_msg('ok!!!');
        }else{
        echo $this->set_msg('failed');
        }
    }

Now, supose what you send in the form the parameters the account e-mail and password.. i load the model.. in the model have the code for conect to msn and extract the contacts.

Model


.
.
.
.
function grabber_msn()
    {

    $params = array('user' => $this->input->post('user'), 'password' => $this->input->post('password'));

    $this->load->library('phpListgrab', $params);

    $ret = $this->phplistgrab->grab();

    if (!$ret)
    {
        switch ($this->phplistgrab->result)
        {
            case ERR_AUTHENTICATION_FAILED:
                echo '<p>Authentication failed.</p>';
                break;

            case ERR_SERVER_UNAVAILABLE:
                echo '<p>Failed to connect to server.</p>';
                break;
        }

    }

    foreach ($this->phplistgrab->lists[LIST_FORWARD] as $contact)
    {
        $ndatos = array (
        'id_usuario' => $this->session->userdata('id'),
        'friend' => $contact['passport']);

         $this->db->insert('import_contacts',$ndatos);
    }


    }

Explanation So.. in the model i make a array for send the data account the user.. this array send whit parameter to the library whe its load.

later, call the function grab and storage the result in $ret for check if connect or not to the service.

and in the last part.. call the function "lists" for retrive the contact information, in this case.. i read the data and storage inmediatly in the database, using whit id_usuario, the id th user what give the friends.

In the zip file, you hace two files.
