How to implement an Instant Messenger / Live Messenger



hey guys,

for my BA-Thesis i would like to implement some kind of an instant messenger like facebook oder whatsapp. Is this possible?!
preferably I would like to implement it for a mobile device with Axure Share. But my first try doesn’t fit. And i don’t know, how to save the text from my probands and display it like on whatsapp in a chat. Does anyone know some help?

Chat / Chatbot samples?

Hi Lisa!

I’d first recommend using the Repeater widget for this, as it is the one widget that allows you to dynamically add widgets to the page (think of text bubbles). However, as Repeaters are an advanced feature of Axure RP, I’d encourage you to look through our documentation on the subject before diving in:

And I’d like to mention here that while you can certainly simulate the look and feel of an instant messenger, it isn’t currently possible for two Axure projects to connect/talk with each other, as you would with a live messenger in real time.

With that in mind, here are a couple of example posts that may help you get started with what you’re looking for:


Hi Jane,

If it’s impossible for two Axure projects to communicate with each other, how do you simulate this chat experience in one project but using global variables and 2 different pages?

For example, I want to have a chat window on the user end on one page and the same chat on the admin end on a different page and make the admin chat display what user has selected in real-time? Is it achievable at all?

Thank you


Yes, it’s possible to prototype an instant messenger for your BA-Thesis. However, Axure is primarily a tool for designing and prototyping user interfaces, not for implementing functional applications. While you can create a visual representation of a chat application in Axure, you cannot actually send or store messages in a database.

For a functional chat application, consider using a programming language like JavaScript, Python, or Swift, and tools such as Firebase for real-time data storage and retrieval. Remember to consider aspects like security, data privacy, and user management when designing and implementing your application.
