Notification

Supported platforms:

Available since version: Gideros 2011.6

Description:

Notification class is used to compose and schedule new local notifications. You need to provide an ID of notification to constructor. Using same provided ID you can create a new instance of Notification class and modify existing notification with that ID. Additionally the ID allows you to identify local notification in the table of scheduled local notifications retrieved from NotificationManager:getScheduledNotifications, or table of local notifications that were already displayed using NotificationManager:getLocalNotifications
Notification consists of notification message, title, sound and number. Only message is the mandatory one. You can combine others as you wish.

Common uses and examples:

Create new notification and dispatch right away

local note = Notification.new(1)
note:setTitle("Notification app")
note:setMessage("Do you see me?")
note:setSound("./some_sound.wav")
note:dispatchNow()

Create new notification and dispatch after one hour with repeating period of one day

local note = Notification.new(2)
note:setTitle("Notification app")
note:setMessage("I will bother you each day")
note:dispatchAfter({hour = 1}, {day = 1})

Create new notification and dispatch on specific date in specific time

local note = Notification.new(3)
note:setTitle("Notification app")
note:setMessage("Happy Birthday")
note:dispatchOn({year = 2013, month = 8, day = 1, hour = 9, min = 0, sec = 0})

Modifying existing scheduled notification

--id of notification to modify
local id = 1

--retrieve shared instance
local mngr = NotificationManager.getSharedInstance()

--retrieve table with scheduled notifications
local t = mngr:getScheduledNotifications()

--check if id is in it
if t[id] then
	--notification is still scheduled
	--let's modify it by creating new instance with same id
	local note = Notification.new(id)
	note:setTitle("New title")
	note:setMessage("New message")
	--if we want to modify dispatch time we need to redispatch it
	note:dispatchAfter({day = 1})
end
