Windows Javascript SDK

Supports Windows 8.1, Windows 10

SDK Integration

You can use an emulator while working with push notifications.

To integrate Pushwoosh into your Windows JS application, follow the steps below.

1. Download our SDK package.

2. Add reference to PushSDK/Project-Win8.1-WNS/PushSDK.winmd to your project
Or PushSDK/Project-Win10-WNS/PushSDK.winmd if you develop for Windows 10

3. Initialize push service with the following code:

var service = new PushSDK.NotificationService.getCurrent("YOUR_PUSHWOOSH_APP_ID");
 
service.ononpushaccepted = function (args) {
    //code to handle push notification
    //display push notification payload for test only
    var md = new Windows.UI.Popups.MessageDialog(args.toString());
    md.showAsync()
}
 
service.ononpushtokenreceived = function (pushToken) {
    //code to handle push token
}
 
service.ononpushtokenfailed = function (error) {
    //code to handle push subscription failure
}
 
service.subscribeToPushService();

4. In your app.onactivated function add the following:

app.onactivated = function (args) {
        if (args.detail.kind === activation.ActivationKind.launch) {
            if (args.detail.previousExecutionState !== activation.ApplicationExecutionState.terminated) {
                // TODO: This application has been newly launched. Initialize
                // your application here.
 
                //Handle start push
                PushSDK.NotificationService.handleStartPush(args.detail.arguments);

Important!

If you plan to use Toast notifications, please make sure Toast notifications are swithced on in your application project. Go to Application UI tab in manifest settings, and set Toast Capable to Yes. Otherwise, Toast notifications will not work on the device.

Cakewalk!

Tags

With tags, you can create a set of devices based on different criteria.

1. Create a list of tags:

var keys = ["name1", "name2"];
var values = ["value1", "value2"];

2. Send tags to Pushwoosh:

service.sendTag(keys, values);

Geozones

You can send push notifications to users located in a specific area.

1. Turning Geo Zones on:

service.startGeoLocation();

2. Turning Geo Zones off:

service.stopGeoLocation();
