Hi, As refer to http:Q_21111980.html

I got a web method as GetOutboundStatus, so how can i call it using the following info (probably using SOAP Toolkit 3.0)?

I got SOAP request as:

POST /function/1.0/functionservice.asmx HTTP/1.1
Host: webservices.mydomain.com
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length
SOAPAction: "http://webservices.mydomain.com/function/1.0/GetOutboundStatus"

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
    <GetOutboundStatus xmlns="http://webservices.mydomain.com/function/1.0/">
      <customerID>string</customerID>
      <password>string</password>
      <transactionIDs>
        <string>string</string>
        <string>string</string>
      </transactionIDs>
      <requestSettings>
        <DIMEDocuments>
          <SecretKeys>
            <SecretKey xsi:nil="true" />
            <SecretKey xsi:nil="true" />
          </SecretKeys>
        </DIMEDocuments>
        <SecurityMode>
          <UseDIME>boolean</UseDIME>
          <DigitallySigned>boolean</DigitallySigned>
        </SecurityMode>
      </requestSettings>
    </GetOutboundStatus>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

And i got SOAP response as:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
    <GetOutboundStatusResponse xmlns="http://webservices.mydomain.com/function/1.0/">
      <GetOutboundStatusResult>
        <RecipientStatus>
          <Attemps>string</Attemps>
          <CSID>string</CSID>
          <CallTime>string</CallTime>
          <TransactionID>string</TransactionID>
          <Charges>string</Charges>
          <Pages>string</Pages>
          <Phone>string</Phone>
          <Seconds>string</Seconds>
          <Speed>string</Speed>
          <Status>string</Status>
          <ProviderTxId>string</ProviderTxId>
        </RecipientStatus>
        <RecipientStatus>
          <Attemps>string</Attemps>
          <CSID>string</CSID>
          <CallTime>string</CallTime>
          <TransactionID>string</TransactionID>
          <Charges>string</Charges>
          <Pages>string</Pages>
          <Phone>string</Phone>
          <Seconds>string</Seconds>
          <Speed>string</Speed>
          <Status>string</Status>
          <ProviderTxId>string</ProviderTxId>
        </RecipientStatus>
      </GetOutboundStatusResult>
    </GetOutboundStatusResponse>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

What currently i have is:

Private soapclient As MSSOAPLib.soapclient

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Set soapclient = New MSSOAPLib.soapclient
     
    soapclient.mssoapinit "http://webservices.junk.net/fax/1.0/faxservice.asmx?WSDL"
    soapclient.ConnectorProperty("EndPointURL") = "http://webservices.junk.net/fax/1.0/faxservice.asmx"
   
    Dim tmp As String
    Dim tmpArr(0) As String
   
    Dim retList As IXMLDOMNodeList
    Dim node As IXMLDOMNode

    tmpArr(0) = "123456789"
    Set retList = soapclient.GetOutboundStatus("customerID", "password", tmpArr(), Null)
   
    For Each node In retList
       MsgBox node.xml
    Next
   
End Sub

but failed with Type Mismatch Error on line:

Set retList = soapclient.GetOutboundStatus("customerID", "password", tmpArr(), Null)

and when i debug soapclient.detail, i got:
Client:Type conversion failure for element requestSettings  HRESULT=0x80020005

Can someone guide me where i was wrong?! Still need an urgent help, thks

Have you tried

Set retList = soapclient.GetOutboundStatus("customerID", "password", tmpArr(0), Null)


or

Set retList = soapclient.GetOutboundStatus("customerID", "password", tmpArr, Null)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Per my comment under http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_21111980.html

It looks to me like the fourth parameter, requestSettings, is an optional parameter of a user-defined type.  Can you confirm this?

Have you tried leaving it off of the call, e.g.,
tmp = soapclient.GetOutboundStatus("customerID", "password", tmpArr())

A couple of things from your code on the other question ( http:Q_21111980 ):

First,
    doc.selectSingleNode("/soap:Envelope/soap:Body/GetOutboundStatus/transactionIDs").Text = "12345"

should be:
    doc.selectSingleNode("/soap:Envelope/soap:Body/GetOutboundStatus/transactionIDs/string").Text = "12345"

Second, in request.xml, get rid of the second "string" tag (if you're not going to use it)"
...
      <transactionIDs>
        <string>string</string>
        <string>string</string>
      </transactionIDs>
...

becomes
...
      <transactionIDs>
        <string>string</string>
      </transactionIDs>
...


You can loop through this code to add whatever extra TransactionIDs you need to:
    Dim oElement As IXMLDOMNode
...
' begin loop
    Set oElement = doc.createNode(NODE_ELEMENT, "string", "http://webservices.junk.net/fax/1.0/")
    oElement.Text = "23456" ' replace "23456" with whatever ID
    doc.selectSingleNode("/soap:Envelope/soap:Body/GetOutboundStatus/transactionIDs").appendChild oElement
' loop

Once I got to this point in testing, I got a [5005: Invalid credentials] error (since obviously I don't have real credentials with which to test).  Again, this should get you going.


For a longer-term solution that involves the SOAP Toolkit, look in the "User Guide" under SOAP Toolkit 3.0 | Advanced Sample Applications | Handling Complex Data Types | Using the Generic Type Mapper.

Is it still a good idea to use the MS SOAP toolkit?
I read something saying it was deprecated by .NET.

We use VB6 with no plans at the moment to switch to .NET.
