Clickatell COM object SMS API
Tags:sms, SMS API, com api
If you are connecting from a Windows-based programming environment, you can interface using Com. Our API’s rich set of methods and definitions makes it easy for you to integrate SMS sending into your applications or .asp pages.
Since the COM interface is fully documented, any COM enabled programming language can be used. To be able to download the .zip file, you will first need to sign up for a COM Object account. Also included in the .zip file is the programmers reference manual for utilising the COM Object in your environment.
What you can do when you connect using COM Object:
Like all our APIs, the COM Object connection supports text, Unicode, binary SMS and flash messaging.
It gives you support for extended length messages.
You’re able to use our converters to turn ringtones and logos into the correct format.
You can use our VCard and VCal converters.
Delivery acknowledgement and sender ID can be set up.
You will have access to gateway escalation which prompts an escalation to an alternative delivery gateway, should the message be delayed for a predefined length of time, and queuing which lets you specify up to 3 prioritised queues according to which your messages will be sent out.
Delivery delay gives you the ability to specify a delay of up to 7 days when sending messages.
You can set up batch sending.
While two-way messaging is not a feature of Com Object you can always make use of HTTP, FTP or SMPP to receive incoming messages.
