  • Published:
  • Version: 1.0
  • Category: SDK
  • Language: English

This sample demonstrates how custom server and client alerting applications can be written. This download includes fully functional sample applications that allow users to send alerts to Active Directory Group members who have an alert client application installed.

  • This demonstration leverages the RTC API to show how users can send and receive alerts from a customized application. Two applications are included in this download are:

    1. AlertSender: This server application allows messages to be sent to Active Directory Group members with an arbitrarily defined Low, Medium, and High priority.

    2. AlertClient: The client application allows users to log in and receive messages. This application can be run in the background to collect messages. If an important message is sent, then a secondary alert will occur.

    Source code, code walkthrough, and supporting documentation are included. The sample application is provided in C# and Visual Basic .NET.

    • There is no support for this sample code.
