#MSBAND – Send notifications and vibrations with #VS2015 and #Windows10


These are the final posts that I will write about Microsoft Band, Windows 10. and Visual Studio 2015 Now is time to send information to the band in dialog form. We have 2 ways to send a notification to the band:

  • Using the method SendMessageAsync, we need to define a title and body, and it will be associate to a Custom Band Tile
  • Using the ShowDialogAsync method, which shows a direct message in the band

In both cases the code is very simple, for example:

The following video shows where the band receives a notification of type ShowDialogAsync()

Finally, Microsoft Band also us offers the possibility to send vibrations to the Band using NotificationManager. There are different types of vibration, as shown in the following image
