RemoteNotification

Enterprise Browser 1.7

Overview

Remote Notification APIs enable Enterprise Browser applications to control device annunciators such as the beeper, vibrator and multi-color LEDs to notify the user of custom events in their workflow.

This API is supported only on Android devices with the following accessories (RS6000 and External Vibrator - CBL-NGWT-HDVBAP-01) only.

Enabling the API

There are two methods of enabling the RemoteNotification API:

  • Include all 'ebapi' modules
  • Include only the required API modules

Both methods are explained below.

Either way, the included files will be found in: /Enterprise Browser/JavaScript Files/Enterprise Browser, a directory on the computer that contains the Enterprise Browser installation.

Include all API modules

To include all JavaScript APIs, copy the ebapi-modules.js file to a location accessible by the app's files and include the JavaScript modules file in the app. For instance, to include the modules file in the index.html file, copy the file to the same directory as the index.html and add the following line to the HEAD section of the index.html:

    
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="ebapi-modules.js"></script>

The code above defines the EB class within the page. Note that the path for this file is relative to the current page (index.html). Any page on which the modules are required must include a reference to the required .js file(s) in this fashion.

Include only the required modules

To include individual APIs, first include a reference to the ebapi.js module in the HTML, and then the additional required API file(s). For instance, to use the Remote Notification API, add the following code to the HTML file(s). Again, this assumes that relevant API files have been copied to the same directory as the HTML.


<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="ebapi.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="eb.remotenotification.js"></script>

In the lines above, notice that ebapi.js is included first, followed by eb.remotenotification.js, which is the Remote Notification API for Enterprise Browser. This coding is required on each HTML page whenever an individual API will be called from that page.

notify(HASH notifyinfo)

Notify method sends the notification information to the device.

Parameters

  • notifyinfo : HASH Optional

    The properties associated with the notifyinfo. Not providing properties to this function will use the notification device's default properties, or those previously set on the remote notification instance.

    • beepPattern : Array Default:

      An array of Beep that specifies the durations for which to turn on the beep in milliseconds and the frequency in Hz. Default value assigned is null. Maximum allowed are 4 beep pattern pairs. If more than 4 pattern pairs are provided, only the first 4 pattern pairs will be considered. { beepPattern:[ {beeptime:500,beepfrequency:3000}, {beeptime:500,beepfrequency:0}, {beeptime:500,beepfrequency:3000}, {beeptime:500,beepfrequency:0}, {beeptime:500,beepfrequency:3000}, {beeptime:500,beepfrequency:0} ]

    • vibratorPattern : Array Default:

      Vibrate with a given pattern. Pass in an array of integers that are the durations for which to turn on or off the vibrator in milliseconds. The supported values are 0ms to 2550ms. Behavior is undefined for any other value. The first value indicates the number of milliseconds to wait before turning the vibrator on. The next value indicates the number of milliseconds for which to keep the vibrator on before turning it off. Subsequent values alternate between durations in milliseconds to turn the vibrator off or to turn the vibrator on. Maximum 4 vibrating pattern pairs are supported. If more than 4 pattern pairs are provided, only the first 4 pattern pairs will be considered. Default value assigned is null. Note: This parameter is not supported for External Vibrator. vibratorPattern:[ {vibratortime:500}, {vibratortime:500}, {vibratortime:500}, {vibratortime:500}, {vibratortime:500}, {vibratortime:500} ]

    • ledonTime : INTEGER Default:

      the number of milliseconds for the LED to be ON while it's flashing. Default value assigned is 0. The supported values are 0ms to 2550ms. Behavior is undefined for any other value..

    • ledoffTime : INTEGER Default:

      The number of milliseconds for the LED to be OFF while it's flashing. Default value assigned is 0. The supported values are 0ms to 2550ms. Behavior is undefined for any other value.

    • ledrepeatCount : INTEGER Default:

      The LED blinking repeat count. Default value assigned is 0. The supported values are 0 to 127 for RS6000. Setting -1 or above 127 will flash the LED infinitely for RS6000. Note: The repeatCount is used for additional LED blinks. Example: Setting repeatCount = 0 will blink the LED once, setting repeatCount = 1 will blink the LED twice, etc.

    • ledcolor : STRING Default:

      The color for blinking LED on the notification device using RGB format. Ex: #FF0000 for Red.The Default value of ledcolor is set to black(#000000).So led will not glow if the ledcolor is balck. So it is recommended to specify the ledcolor value(other than black) before calling notify.

    • vibrationDuration : INTEGER Default:

      The vibration time in milliseconds. Default value is assigned to 0. If the pattern array is null, this time will be used otherwise pattern takes precedence. The supported values are 0ms to 2550ms. Behavior is undefined for any other value.
