Method Detail

triggerImmediateEvent

public static void triggerImmediateEvent(long sourceID,
                                         long eventID,
                                         Object eventReference,
                                         Object context)
Triggers an immediate event. This is intended to support consequences such as tone, vibration or the LED. In other words, things that do not require user interaction.
Parameters:
sourceID - Identifier of the application triggering the event.
eventID - Application-specific event identifier.
eventReference - Application-specific event cookie.
context - Optional context object.

cancelImmediateEvent

public static void cancelImmediateEvent(long sourceID,
                                        long eventID,
                                        Object eventReference,
                                        Object context)
Cancels any current immediate events.
Parameters:
sourceID - Identifier of the application that triggered the event.
eventID - Application-specific event identifier.
eventReference - Application-specific event cookie.
context - Optional context object.

negotiateDeferredEvent

public static void negotiateDeferredEvent(long sourceID,
                                          long eventID,
                                          Object eventReference,
                                          long eventDate,
                                          int triggerIndex,
                                          Object context)

Adds the specified event to the event queue. Exactly where in the queue the event is inserted is engine-specific, i.e., neither the event nor the application can decide it.

The triggerIndex parameter specifies further criteria for determining the event. Currently only two values are defined:

  • NotificationsConstants.OUT_OF_HOLSTER_TRIGGER
  • NotificationsConstants.MANUAl_TRIGGER
If OUT_OF_HOLSTER_TRIGGER is specified, the event will occur when the device is next removed from the holster. Furthermore, the event will expire on it's own if the eventDate time is reached. Finally, the current implementation will drop this event if the device is NOT in the holster when this call is made.

If the value MANUAL_TRIGGER is specified as the triggerIndex, the eventDate expiry parameter is ignored.

An event can be cancelled via the cancelDeferredEvent method. Furthermore, this call must be made to cancel an event that has no timeout.

Parameters:
sourceID - Identifier of the application that is queuing the event.
eventID - Application-specific event identifier.
eventReference - Application-specific event cookie.
eventDate - Event expiry time. A relative ms count from the time the method is called. This parameter is currently ignored UNLESS the triggerIndex is NotificationsConstants.OUT_OF_HOLSTER_TRIGGER
triggerIndex - Identifier of the way in which the event will be triggered.
context - Optional context object.
