Fax VB.NET - Query Submitted Faxes with FaxQuery2

This code snippet allows you to query a number of previously-submitted faxes with VB.NET, and display detailed information on these faxes. This is done using the FaxQuery2 method with VB.NET, which provides more advanced querying options than FaxQuery (for more details, see Side-by-Side Comparison of Web Service Methods).

Fax VB.NET - Retrieve Inbound Fax Image with GetImageChunk

This fax VB.NET example uses GetImageChunk to retrieve a fax image in multiple chunks (chunk size is configurable). To retrieve the fax image, you need the fax message ID and file size. These can be retrieved using the GetList method.

These project files allow you to retrieve the image of an outbound (previously-submitted) fax with VB.NET. This is done using the GetFaxImage method.

Fax VB.NET - Cancel Outbound Fax

The CancelFax method shown in this sample allows you to cancel a previously-submitted, outbound fax using VB.NET. Using CancelFax only effects faxes waiting to be sent (with the status codes: -1 Preprocessing, -2 Ready, or -3 Pending Retry), and not faxes that are being actively transmitted.
