|Summary||0004912: Notification Centre Notification when out-of-date software is detected|
|Description||When SUMo performs a background scan at start-up and it detects out-dated software, there should be an option to display a Notification Centre notification to bring this to the user's attention. Clicking the notification should open SUMo with the list sorted so that the the most out-of-dated software is on top of the list.|
As an option, there should be a setting that only displays a notification if there has been changes since the last user-approved state. This would require the need to snapshot the current user versions against the current latest version and store them as a snapshot. These values could be displayed as two additional columns in SUMo.

||Good idea. I'm looking for source code sample in D7 to do the job...|
Microsoft appear to be keeping the API to themselves and only providing an interface via UWA apps. One of the comments on the following page, however, provides a link to a GitHub repository that appears to expose the API (or at least parts of it). Using the headers this can be converted to a suitable Delphi interface. Note that the Notification Centre used to be called Action Centre.
The GitHub repository...
According to this article the Action Centre API is published and available in their SDK...
Some UWA instructions that most likely won't be of much help for use with Delphi...
||Looks like not possible in D7... i'll keep on investigating !|
||I could write a simple Delphi wrapper for it if needed. I have done so for other Windows APIs that have had no native Delphi support. It's not very difficult, it just takes a bit of time and requires access to the headers, but if Microsoft has included it in their SDK, then all the information that's required is there.|
||That would be great !|
The latest documentation on "toast notifications" as Microsoft now calls them.
Hopefully this name sticks, third time lucky as they say.
Here's some historical thread on some of the issues people have been having...
This may also be of interest...
However, the best link is still the docs one, i.e., the following one...
Note the link to GitHub and other resources at the end of the article.
||What an overcomplicated design...|
