Also
Is in CombatPlayer Channel the word "test" found , then Count+1

Example:
This is a test

count+1

can someone help me there?

thanks
have a nice day
A simplified version of the string.find function will work for this specific case since you are looking for a static substring, in this case the word "test":

if string.find (args.Message,"test",1,true)~=nil then
end

so, your code snippet becomes:
Code:
 count=0; -- initialize variable
 -- define the AddCallback function
 function AddCallback(object, event, callback)
   if (object[event] == nil) then
     object[event] = callback;
   else
     if (type(object[event]) == "table") then
       table.insert(object[event], callback);
     else
       object[event] = {object[event], callback};
     end
   end
   return callback;
 end

 ChatMonitor = Turbine.Chat;
 ChatReceived = function(f, args)
 local msg = args.Message;
 if(args.ChatType == Turbine.ChatType.PlayerCombat) then
   if string.find (args.Message,"test",1,true)~=nil then
     count=count+1
     do_update()
   end
 end
 end
 AddCallback(Turbine.Chat, "Received", ChatReceived)
Note, you should still read about AddCallback and RemoveCallback and use RemoveCallback in your plugin's unload handler to avoid crashing the client (only in very rare circumstances now that Turbine has fixed a number of their bugs) when unloading the plugin.
