• Marking a message as read

    From Nightfox@VERT/DIGDIST to All on Sunday, May 09, 2010 19:12:43
    In JavaScript scripts for Synchronet, is there a way to mark a message in a sub-board as read? The MsgBase object has the get_msg_body() function, which retrieves the body of a message, but looking at the docs, I'm not sure that I see a way to change the attributes of a message to mark one as read by the user.

    Yes, using MsgBase.put_msg_header()

    Yes, using MsgBase.put_msg_header()

    If I do that to a message in one of my message sub-boards, will that set it as read for everyone? What I want to do is just mark the message as read just
    for the user who read it, so the message will no longer come up in a scan for new messages to the user in the sub-board.

    No, the "READ" attribute means the "To" user read it.

    Thanks for the clarification.
