Foxprow 2.6 and Twilio API

Foxprow 2.6 and Twilio API

Hi Experts!

We already have the ability to send outbound email from our Fox application using MS Outlook. I'd like to now take advantage of outbound texting using Twilio's API and was wondering if anyone had experience with this and can offer some guidance I can provide my dad (aka the programmer).

Thank you,

RE: Foxprow 2.6 and Twilio API

I have not used Twilio, but another alternative to sending Texts is to use a Text Gateway.

Personally I refuse to do Texting, but there are times when I need to send the recipient a Text message.
So I compose my email in the usual manner and then send it to the recipient's Text Gateway - based on their cell phone carrier.
There are no guarantees, but it has always worked for me.

A few references I use are:

NOTE - sometimes I need to use the MMS gateway and other times the SMS gateway.

You can also look at:
Text Messaging (SMS) for VFP

Good Luck,

Check out TwilioX on VFPX

Oh, just realized this was a question for FP2.x, so ignore my previous answer.
