GooglePushMessage Class


The GooglePushMessage helps generating a notification payload targeting Google Cloud Messaging for Chrome (GCM). Notifications can be sent using the PushClient class.

type GooglePushMessage = class
    inherit Dictionary<string, obj>
    interface IPushMessage
Public Class GooglePushMessage

GooglePushMessage(IDictionary<String,String>, Nullable<TimeSpan>)

GooglePushMessage(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the GooglePushMessage class with the specified serialization information and streaming context.



A collapse key is an arbitrary string that is used to collapse a group of like messages when the device is offline, so that only the most recent message gets sent to the client. For example, "New mail", "Updates available", and so on.


A collection or name-value properties to include in the message. Properties must be simple types, i.e. they can not be nested.


Indicates whether the message should be delivered while the device is idle.


As an alternative to building the notification by initializing the GooglePushMessage directly, it is possible to provide a complete JSON representation which will be sent to the Notification Hub unaltered.


The Time to Live (TTL) property lets the sender specify the maximum lifespan of a message. The value of this parameter must be a duration from 0 to 2,419,200 seconds, and it corresponds to the maximum period of time for which GCM will store and try to deliver the message. Requests that don't contain this field default to the maximum period of 4 weeks.
