Example

As with every method we need to pass in credentials. We do this with the LookupUser request object.

We will assume you have a web reference, let us name it SWS, in your Visual Studio project. At this point we need to define our objects.  We will need the standard service object, an UpdateAuction request object, and an UpdateAuction response object. We can define and create those like this:

' Create a request and response objects
 Dim objService As New SWS.WSSoapClient
 Dim objReq As New SWS.UpdateAuction_Request
 Dim objRes As New SWS.UpdateAuction_Response

Here is a sample code of the request object (including optional parameters):

' UpdateAuction Request
 With objReq
 .SiteID = 1000000001
 .AuctionID = 1000000000
 .AuctionDateTime = 2011-05-14T00:00:00.000-06:00
 .AuctioneerName = James Sweet
 .AuctionStatus = SCHEDULED
 End With

Finally we can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to retrieve our requested information. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

Try
 ' Call the method that will load the response object
 objRes = objService.UpdateAuction(objLogin, objReq)
 Catch ex As Exception
 MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
 End Try

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You will want to capture the message in the exception so it can be debugged.

SWS GetTotalDuePastDue Method

May 23, 2011 Leave a comment

Retrieves the total amount due and the past due amount for a rental item, including the number of cycles past due. It works the same as the GetTotalDue SWS method with the exception that it requires each rental ID that you wish to include in the total. This will include all fees and services for the applicable past due and future amounts.

AcctID Long Required
Description The account’s ID number. This is returned when you use the CreateNewAccount method or can be retrieved with the SearchBy method.

Description The number of rental periods used to calculate the amount. If no cycle is passed in, it is assumed only one cycle should be included. The number of cycles starts from the PTD of the rental. You are limited to the number of cycles you can retrieve based on the ‘Allowed Number of Days Paid Ahead’ rule for the site. The rule information can be retrieved using the GetSiteRules and GetSiteRulesValue methods.
IsRetail Boolean Optional
Description Indicates that the total retrieved should be for retail assessment only (“True”) or if it should be for the rental assessments only (“False”).
IsRetailAndRental Boolean Optional
Description Indicates that the total retrieved should be for both the retail and the rental assessments on the account (“True”) or only for the rental assessments (“False”).

Example

We’ll assume you’ve got a web reference, let’s name it SWS, in your Visual Studio project.  At this point we need to our objects.  We’ll need the standard service object, a GetTotalDue request object and a GetTotalDuePastDue response object.  We can define and create those like this:

// Create a request and response objects
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.GetTotalDue_Request request = new SWS.GetTotalDue_Request();
SWS.GetTotalDuePastDue_Response response;

Here’s my sample code of the Request object.

// GetTotalDuePastDue Request
request.SiteID = 123456;
request.AcctID = 123456;
request.RentalID = new long[] { 123456 };
request.Cycles = new int[] { 1 };
request.IsRetail = false;
request.IsRetailAndRental = false;

Finally we can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to retrieve the data. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
try
{
  response = service.GetTotalDuePastDue(user_request, request);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
  MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
}

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You’ll want to take a look at that message returned in that exception so it can be debugged.
