msgData Object a JSONable object.
ackhandler function by default, the ackhandler handles acknowledgments from the server that your message was delivered to it's destination. However, application logic in the server can over-ride this. If you leave this null, a stub ackHandler will be used. The ackHandler gets passed a message with the same msgType as your outgoing message, or a message type of "error" in which case msgData will contain a errorCode and errorText fields.
Source:
Example
easyrtc.sendDataWS(someEasyrtcid, "setPostalAddress", {room:499, bldgNum:'asd'},
     function(ackMsg){
         console.log("saw the following acknowledgment " + JSON.stringify(ackMsg));
     }
   );

sendPeerMessage(destination, msgType, msgData, successCB, failureCB)

Sends a message to another peer on the easyrtcMsg channel.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
destination String either a string containing the easyrtcId of the other user, or an object containing some subset of the following fields: targetEasyrtcid, targetGroup, targetRoom. Specifying multiple fields restricts the scope of the destination (operates as a logical AND, not a logical OR).
msgType String the type of message being sent (application specific).
msgData Object a JSONable object with the message contents.
successCB function a callback function with results from the server.
failureCB function a callback function to handle errors.
Source:
Example
easyrtc.sendPeerMessage(otherUser, 'offer_candy', {candy_name:'mars'},
            function(msgType, msgBody ){
               console.log("message was sent");
            },
            function(errorCode, errorText){
               console.log("error was " + errorText);

setPeerListener(listener, msgType, source)

Sets a listener for data sent from another client (either peer to peer or via websockets). If no msgType or source is provided, the listener applies to all events that aren't otherwise handled. If a msgType but no source is provided, the listener applies to all messages of that msgType that aren't otherwise handled. If a msgType and a source is provided, the listener applies to only message of the specified type coming from the specified peer. The most specific case takes priority over the more general.

easyrtc.setPeerListener( function(easyrtcid, msgType, msgData, targeting){
        console.log("From " + easyrtc.idToName(easyrtcid) +
            " sent the following data " + JSON.stringify(msgData));
    });
    easyrtc.setPeerListener( function(easyrtcid, msgType, msgData, targeting){
        console.log("From " + easyrtc.idToName(easyrtcid) +
            " sent the following data " + JSON.stringify(msgData));

     }
  });

setScreenCapture()

This function requests that screen capturing be used to provide the local media source rather than a webcam. If you have multiple screens, they are composited side by side. Note: this functionality is not supported by Firefox, has to be called before calling initMediaSource (or easyApp), we don't currently supply a way to turn it off (once it's on), only works if the website is hosted SSL (https), and the image quality is rather poor going across a network because it tries to transmit so much data. In short, screen sharing through WebRTC isn't worth using at this point, but it is provided here so people can try it out.
Source:
Example
easyrtc.setScreenCapture();

setSdpFilters(localFilter, remoteFilter)

Sets functions which filter sdp records before calling setLocalDescription or setRemoteDescription. This is advanced functionality which can break things, easily. See the easyrtc_rates.js file for a filter builder.

    });

setSignalingStateChangeListener(listener)

Sets a function that listens on SignalingStateChange events. During ICE negotiation the peer connection fires the signalingstatechange event. The function should accept three parameters: the easyrtc id of the peer, the signalingstatechange event target and the signalingstate.
Parameters:
Name Type Description

Source:

setSocketUrl(socketUrl, options)

Sets the url of the Socket server. The node.js server is great as a socket server, but it doesn't have all the hooks you'd like in a general web server, like PHP or Python plug-ins. By setting the serverPath your application can get it's regular pages from a regular web server, but the EasyRTC library can still reach the socket server.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
socketUrl String
options Object an optional dictionary of options for socket.io's connect method. The default is {'connect timeout': 10000,'force new connection': true }
Source:
Example

   }

setVideoDims(width, height, frameRate)

This function is used to set the dimensions of the local camera, usually to get HD. If called, it must be called before calling easyrtc.initMediaSource (explicitly or implicitly). assuming it is supported. If you don't pass any parameters, it will use default camera dimensions.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
width Number in pixels
height Number in pixels
frameRate number is optional
Source:
Examples
easyrtc.setVideoDims(1280,720);
easyrtc.setVideoDims();

setVideoObjectSrc(element, stream)

Sets a video or audio object from a media stream. Chrome uses the src attribute and expects a URL, while firefox uses the mozSrcObject and expects a stream. This procedure hides that from you. If the media stream is from a local webcam, you may want to add the easyrtcMirror class to the video object so it looks like a proper mirror. The easyrtcMirror class is defined in this.css. Which is could be added using the same path of easyrtc.js file to an HTML file
Parameters:
Name Type Description
element Object an HTML5 video element
stream MediaStream | String a media stream as returned by easyrtc.getLocalStream or your stream acceptor.

The div has title component with a class name of easyrtcErrorDialog_title. The error messages get added to a container with the id easyrtcErrorDialog_body. Each error message is a text node inside a div with a class of easyrtcErrorDialog_element. There is an "okay" button with the className of easyrtcErrorDialog_okayButton.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
messageCode String An error message code
message String the error message text without any markup.
