Hi to all, I've searched for this topic into the discussion board, but I've found nothing... I want to use NowSMS to receive SMS from the participants of a party and have them displayed on a "SMS-Board", which will be beamed on a wall at the party. How can this be done ??

Thanks for your answers !!

For me as i'm good in PHP, i'll prefere to make a small php script that read the messages from SMSIN file and scrool it up the page with the help of javascript.

you can use F11 in your keyboard to make it full screen.

if i do have an extra time i'll do this script for you but not sure.

I hope it is a good idea.

I can't help you with the part about beaming them on to a wall.

But from a NowSMS perspective, you can configure NowSMS to issue an HTTP request with the content of any received SMS messages. (Or you could run a local command line program instead of the HTTP request.) So each time an SMS message is received, NowSMS passes the details to an HTTP request that you configure.

In the NowSMS documentation, we refer to this as "2-way SMS".

This is the interface that you would use to pass received SMS messages from NowSMS to another application that would display them somewhere.
