Does the onJoin method work? #3

Hi, can anyone please shed some light and provide an example for the onJoin command?

$bot = new Philip($config);



I tried to see what would get dumped on the screen when I join the channel but I got nothing. Thank you!

BTW What I wanted to do is welcome specific users when they join the channel.

The onJoin method does what you want, but it won't respond to you joining a room. It will only respond to other people joining a room you're in already.

(at least - that's what it should do, if it doesn't, please file an issue and I'll fix it)

Since I haven't heard anything more from this, I'm going to close it. If there's a problem here, please open a new issue.

Is there any event it triggers when you actually join the channel?


epochblue commented Jul 1, 2013

Events aren't thrown when the bot joins a room. Join events are thrown when someone else joins a channel that the bot currently occupies, however. Is this not working?

ConneXNL commented Jul 2, 2013

It is working. But isnt it a little strange we can't send anything to the channel when we join it.

Someone else first has to join/or say something before we can do anything?

I apologize for being obtuse, but I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for. As long as the bot is in a channel, it can send messages when other people join the room or talk in the room. Are you asking for the bot to join a room and as soon as it successfully joins a room to say something?

The bot can join any room you want it to, whether there's someone in the room or not, but it won't do much while it's in there unless there are other people (or bots?) in the room to post messages to the channel for the bot to respond to.

"Are you asking for the bot to join a room and as soon as it successfully joins a room to say something?"

Yes. This comes in handy when making bots that act on themselves.

OK, well, I think I know how something like this might be implemented. I'll look into adding it.
