Chat Box help

So i’ve been coding a custom HUD for my gamemode and I want to have a custom chat box too. the only thing is just dont understand anything about it.

the hooks you use confuse me, like i get what they do, but i just don’t understand how I can run everything Server side, or any of that.

Chat is just confusing the hell out of me, can anyone just sit down and explain it to me? If we could talk through steam chat that would be great, would be easier to ask questions.

DaRipper12 is my steam.

Im not too good at them myself. The only help i can offer is that you look at some other custom chatbox’s code and learn from it.

Try that.
