FaxMan SDK Version 4.7
Working With the FaxMan Logs

As you’ve already read, the FaxMan server keeps track of 5 separate logs: Pending, Sending, Completed, Failed, and Received. One of the nice advantages of using the FaxMan control is that the control provides an easy way to view and work with these logs using simple properties.

 

A single instance of the FaxMan control displays the contents of one of the five FaxMan logs at any given time. The individual log entries (i.e., the faxes that are in that log at that time) are shown sorted by the date and time they were added to the log. This sort method cannot currently be altered. As faxes are added and removed from this log, it is automatically updated. The log is also easily configured by your end-users; columns can be rearranged easily by dragging the column headings to the left or right, column widths can be altered by dragging the column divider, and columns can be added or removed by right-clicking on the column headings.

 

Your application accesses the current log as an array of log entries. It is important that you keep in mind that these log entries may move within the log array at almost any time, so you shouldn’t store indexes into the array for future use. Once you find the log item you’re looking for, just access the properties you need at that time and then forget the index value altogether.
