Use visual basic to send colour message over the LAN
Posted on 2003-11-03
I am currently writing an application in visual basic that updates real-time data on our intranet, but what I need to be able to do is to send an alert message to one of our users if the data goes above or below a certain value, so that they can check the web page. The web page is not always open, so I need it to work through something like the messenger service, although I'm not sure how to add the colour part.
If the value goes over a certain amount I need the alert to appear in blue and if the alert goes below a certain amount I need the alert to appear as red.
Is there any way of doing this through visual basic?
