If you mean an ordinary Win32 desktop application, then I suppose the dialogue box needed for the chat window could be included as a resource, and activated under certain conditions i.e. when the user presses a certain button.

This dialogue box will then have a textbox or something on it, for you to type your chat message into, and then a way of sending it, like a button. Included also as a resource.

If you mean a fullscreen game with a custom GUI like Battlefield 2 or something, then I'm not so sure I can help.

HTH,
