Hello all.

Im new to the forum and NowSMS and would really appreciate any advice or guidance on my problem.

I am a final year university student and im currently in the process of creating a final year project. The project I am working on is a SMS information service for lecturers and students.

Basically the purpose of this system is to allow lecturers to send SMS to students via a computer based system informing them of cancelled lectures, assignment deadlines or meeting times,etc.

At this point in time i have a mySQL database setup containing student and lecturer details, Flash based input forms and PHP pages to proccess the recieved form data.

The forms basically requires the lecturer to type in either the ID of the student(for a single message) or the module code(to send multiply messages to all students registered to that module) and then the message itself.

The student ID/Module Code and message are then passed through to the PHP pages and stored as variables and the student ID/Module Code variable is used to retrieve either the single mobile number of the student or a list of mobile numbers for all students on the stated module.

OK thats the background and where im up to at the moment. And now for the question.

Is there anyway using NowSMS to access the information stored in my 2 variables (containing the numbers and message) and sending out the messages to the single or multiply numbers?

If anyone has managed to do this or something similar any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated because at this moment in time i'm not very familiar with the NowSMS product and i'm unsure where to start.

Thanks for your time.

Hi,

To trigger NowSMS to submit a message, you need to issue an HTTP request to it ... where you would pass the values for the recipients and message text via a new URL request to NowSMS.

Most scripting languages have the ability to generate an HTTP request. We have some examples in PHP:

http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/867.html

And an ASP.Net example here:

http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/5516.html

But I don't have any examples for other scripting languages.

The following links describe the URL paramters for submitting a message to NowSMS:
