    I am using parse.com to send push notification ....however I found that I can not control the push expiration time
    If you have 1 milion people sending a push each hour ...and all pushes will not react to expiration time interval it will be a mess ...a device will be bumped by thouzents of pushes at the time he will connect to the internet .


    So all options to set expiration time failed to me ...if you have tested and it works for you please give me a feedback or tell me how to proper use this service.

    Code:
    hscar.pub.Initialize

    hscar.pub.SetChannel(
    "chm")

    Dim sb As StringBuilder
    sb.Initialize
    sb.Append(
    "test")

    hscar.pub.SetMessage(sb.ToString)

    hscar.pub.SetExpirationTimeInterval(
    60)

    hscar.pub.send(
    "push_list",0)

    1.All though not recomended in desctionption it looks like this statement works
    this will set an expiration time 1 minute after it was launched
    hscar.pub.SetExpirationTime(DateTime.Now+60*DateTime.TicksPerSecond)

    2.Seccond method might work as well..but I see website allows value equal or larger to 1 hour which is equivalent
    to 3600 seconds as descripbed in setExpirationtimeinterval method of b4a wrapper
    hscar.pub.SetExpirationTimeInterval(60)'can be below accepted server minimum value
    All thought this might work I have never tested yet ..

    Still remains a nice feature in parse services !

    I don't know why but I'm getting notifications with a delay of few minutes to few hours, using the same way of push.

    yes this happens to me also .... I guess it is because they do not refresh its online device status ...due to data trafic protections
    I do not know its mechanism
    You can not use it for critical processes only for info
