Handling incoming or outgoing faxes
To send and receive faxes directly from an WINDEV application or a WEBDEV site, several functions allow you to handle faxes via the fax server available in Windows XP and Windows 2000.

  2. The fax identifiers allows you to:
    • Find out the status of the fax and its characteristics (FaxStatus and FaxCompleteStatus structure).
    • Handle the fax with the following functions:
      FaxDeleteDeletes a fax from the spooler and cancels it. Then, FaxStatus can no longer be used on this fax.
      FaxPausePauses a fax in the spooler. If the fax is enabled, it will be paused when it goes back to the spooler.
      FaxRestartRestarts a fax in the spooler. This function only applies to the pending faxes.
      FaxResumeRe-enables a fax paused in the spooler (pending fax).
