I was just trying to figure this out last night, myself.  There's a description of the status API in the API documentation, but I wasn't able to derive much from it, or the other plugins.  I know the listbox represents various different account statuses you can have in various respective accounts.  One would think, at least, that the icon set would be different, so you knew which of the several 'Away' entries were which.  I haven't been able to find any plugins that do any manipulation of this box, at least in 2.0b2.   If someone knows of one I could poke at, or some more complete documentation, that would be awesome.  I'm trying to write a status-oriented plugin, and this thing is just confusing me at the moment. :)

Subject: [Gaim-devel] Gaim 2 beta: Status problems


I use Gaim 2.0.0beta2 on Windows.

I have two related issues :

 - what is the purpose of that ListBox at the bottom of the
"Buddy List" windows ? Why does it have so many duplicate entries?

 - recentylI tried to send a message to a MSN buddy and I got this printed
in the chat windows : "can not send messate due to invisible mode"
This is not the exact text. Wha does it mean ? Who is invisible ?
How can I check that ? How can I fix it ?
