Posted 12 Apr 2015oh my god, forget I ever asked this. So sorry
Posted 12 Apr 2015It doesn't seem to work, the file name text box in the dialog is empty
SaveFileDialog1.Filter = "TEXT (*.txt*)|*.txt" If SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(SaveFileDialog1.FileName, Label1.Text, True) SaveFileDialog1.FileName = "Example" End If

Thank you for that, I think I have everything needed to build this now. I will take a look at SignalR.
Just wanted to mention another amazing tool that I found - https://www.firebase.com/
I will update this once i'm done with the project.
Posted 9 Feb 2015Sounds like you are working on a similar project as discussed in this thread:
Oh, Yes pretty much the same thing, except i'm writing the app in C# using the mono framework.
Is there a specific term used for these types of projects so that I could do some research?
The reason I was so interested in this was after finding out about an app called PushBullet for android that communicates with a google chrome extension sending and receiving data seamlessly between your phone and browser.
I have tried this for now-
The mobile app -
When the user clicks the button "Do something" I make an ftp request and upload a file to my server and name it action.txt with the string 'do something.
The desktop software -
Then a timer which ticks every 10 seconds connects to the server, reads the string in action.txt, does the action and then proceeds to delete the action.txt file from the server.
And this continues whenever the user clicks the button on the app.
It seems to work just fine, but it's not seamless and it just doesn't seem right.
Is there any other method of doing this?
Posted 9 Feb 2015This should help,
Console application - Pizza ordering system.
I'll work with you on this if you need any help.
