Introduction

Skip to properties and methods

The Template… objects are used to generate SMS messages with special methods. You can set the properties according to your needs and call the Encode method to generate a message body. Set this body into an SMS and set the HasUdh property to true and the BodyFormat property to ‘BODYFORMAT_HEX’.

A WAPPush message can be used to push an URL to a mobile phone. The phone will show the URL along with a description and the option to visit this URL.

Note: Most modern smart phones, like the iPhone and recent Android based phones, no longer support this message type.

  objMessage.ToAddress = "+31122334455"
  objMessage.Body = objWapPush.Data
  objMessage.HasUdh = true
  objMessage.BodyFormat = objConst.BODYFORMAT_HEX

  objGsm.SendSms objMessage
