new FindRoomsRequest(expr[, groupId][, limit])

Creates a new FindRoomsRequest instance. The instance must be passed to the SmartFox.send() method for the request to be executed.

By providing a matching expression and a search scope (a Group or the entire Zone), with this request it is possible to find those Rooms matching the passed criteria on the server side and retrieve them by means of the roomFindResult event.

Example

This example looks for all the server Rooms whose "country" Room Variable is set to "Sweden".

function someMethod()
{
	sfs.addEventListener(SFS2X.SFSEvent.ROOM_FIND_RESULT, onRoomFindResult, this);

	// Create a matching expression to find Rooms with a "country" variable equal to "Sweden"
	var exp = new SFS2X.MatchExpression("country", SFS2X.StringMatch.EQUALS, "Sweden");

	// Find the Rooms
	sfs.send(new SFS2X.FindRoomRequest(exp));
}

function onRoomFindResult(evtParams)
{
	console.log("Rooms found: " + evtParams.rooms);
}
