.NET Library Introduction

Using a single DLL library, C# / .NET developers can send Email, SMS, Fax, Voice and Text-to-Speech messages using their own software.

If you don't have an account, you'll need to register one.

You'll need a new Sender/APIKey combo for your application.

Learn more...

This C#/.NET library is a helper library which submits messages in XML format to TNZ REST API.

Learn more...

You are required to download TNZAPI.dll and reference to your project(s).

Learn more...

There are specific variables dedicated to each 'MessageType'. These are specified on a message-by-message basis.

Learn more...

Delivery Reports can be provided via a Webhook to your URL, Email, or viewed with the Web Dashboard.

Learn more...

Submitted messages can be retried using the Web Dashboard, or by submitting a new DLL request.

Learn more...

Specify the SendMode parameter in your message object to skip message delivery. The message will be accepted and processed with a false delivery result displayed.

Register your account

Head to https://www.tnz.co.nz/Customer/SignUp to create a new account.

A test account is possible, however creating a commerical account and using the SendMode=[MessageType].SendModeType.Test function of the library is simpler to use when you’re ready to push your application live.

After completing the sign up form, a sales consultant will manually activate your account. This may take one business day. Once the account has been activated, you will be able to Create a new API user token.


Create a new API user token

Using the API will require a Sender and APIKey pair to authenticate with the API.

You can generate this using the Web Dashboard under: Users | Outbound Users | Create
User Email Address = Sender
User Token = APIKey


Understanding the .NET Library basics

Save hundreds of lines of code and hours of time by dropping the .NET DLL into your project and sending messages via TNZ. Using one DLL and simple code tweaks, your software can send Email, SMS, Fax, Voice and Text-to-Speech messages.

Using the [MessageType].SendMessage() function, the DLL will connect to TNZ's REST API (in XML format) and submit messages.

Resending and retrying messages

To resend or retry sending a message via API, this will need to be submitted as a new, unique message.
To resend or retry sending a message via the Web Dashboard, once logged in and viewing an individual message, you will see Resubmit and Forward buttons.


Sending messages in test mode

Under Message object you can specify an additional SendMode=Test parameter.

SendMode=Test means any messages will be handled by the API, instantly called a SUCCESS and the success report will be delivered to you. This is a useful way to end-to-end test without sending a live message.


// For Email
EmailMessage.SendMode = Email.SendModeType.Test;

// For SMS
SMSMessage.SendMode = SMS.SendModeType.Test;

// For Fax
FaxMessage.SendMode = Fax.SendModeType.Test;

// For Voice
VoiceMessage.SendMode = Voice.SendModeType.Test;

// For TTS
TTSMessage.SendMode = TTS.SendModeType.Test;
