The Meetings Web service helps you to create and manage Meeting Workspace sites. This topic describes how you can use the Web services to perform the following tasks:

  • Identify existing Meeting Workspace sites.

  • Create new Meeting Workspace sites and add meetings.

  • Delete Meeting Workspace sites.

  • Update meeting information on a Meeting Workspace site.

To identify existing Meeting Workspace sites

  • The following Microsoft Visual Basic code example lists the Meeting Workspace sites that exist on the server.

    NoteNote

    ServerURLTextBox is an interface element that is on a form in the Visual Basic project.

    Dim ws As New mywss001.Meetings()
    Dim myCache As New System.Net.CredentialCache()
    
    Private Sub ListMWS_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ListMWS.Click
     ws.Credentials = myCache.DefaultCredentials()
     ws.Url = ServerURLTextBox.Text
     If (ws.Url.EndsWith("/")) Then
      ws.Url = ws.Url.Remove(ws.Url.Length - 1, 1)
     End If
     ws.Url = ws.Url + "/_vti_bin/meetings.asmx"
     Dim GetMeetingWorkspacesResponse As System.Xml.XmlNode
     If (ws.Url <> "") Then
      GetMeetingWorkspacesResponse = ws.GetMeetingWorkspaces(True)
     End If
     Dim OuterXml As String
     OuterXml = GetMeetingWorkspacesResponse.OuterXml()
     MsgBox("OuterXml")
    End Sub
    

To create a new Meeting Workspace site and add a meeting to the site

  • The following Visual Basic code example creates a Meeting Workspace site and adds a meeting to it.

    NoteNote

    ServerURLTextBox, MeetingSubjectTextBox, MeetingLocationTextBox, DTSTARTTextBox, DTENDTextBox, and CreateWorkspaceButton are all interface elements that are on a form in the Visual Basic project.

    Dim ws As New mywss001.Meetings()
    Dim tz As New mywss001.TimeZoneInf()
    Dim myCache As New System.Net.CredentialCache()
    Dim UID As Integer
    Dim Sequence As UInt32
    
    Private Sub CreateWorkspaceButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CreateWorkspaceButton.Click
     ws.Credentials = myCache.DefaultCredentials()
     ws.Url = ServerURLTextBox.Text
     If (ws.Url.EndsWith("/")) Then
      ws.Url = ws.Url.Remove(ws.Url.Length - 1, 1)
     End If
     ws.Url = ws.Url + "/_vti_bin/meetings.asmx"
     Dim CreateWorkspaceResponse As System.Xml.XmlNode
     If (ws.Url <> "") Then
      CreateWorkspaceResponse = ws.CreateWorkspace(MeetingSubjectTextBox.Text, "MPS#0", System.UInt32.Parse("1033"), tz)
     End If
     Dim OuterXml As String
     OuterXml = CreateWorkspaceResponse.OuterXml()
     Dim MWSURL As String
     Dim Start As Integer
     Dim Finish As Integer
     Start = OuterXml.IndexOf("""")
     Finish = OuterXml.IndexOf("""", Start + 1)
     MWSURL = OuterXml.Substring(Start + 1, Finish - Start - 1)
     Dim MyRand As New System.Random()
     UID = MyRand.Next(100, 10000)
     Sequence.ToString("0")
     ws.Url = MWSURL + "/_vti_bin/meetings.asmx"
     ws.AddMeeting("", UID.ToString, Sequence,     "2003-03-27T15:00:00-08:00", MeetingSubjectTextBox.Text,     MeetingLocationTextBox.Text, DTSTARTTextBox.Text,     DTENDTextBox.Text, False)
     MWSURLLink.Text = MWSURL
    End Sub
    

To delete a Meeting Workspace site

  • The following Visual Basic code example deletes a specified Meeting Workspace site.

    NoteNote

    MWSURLLink contains the URL of the Meeting Workspace site.

    Private Sub DeleteWorkspaceButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DeleteWorkspaceButton.Click
     ws.Credentials = myCache.DefaultCredentials()
     ws.Url = MWSURLLink.Text + "/_vti_bin/meetings.asmx"
     ws.DeleteWorkspace()
    End Sub
    

To update meeting information on a Meeting Workspace site

  • The following Visual Basic code example updates a meeting that exists on a Meeting Workspace site.

    NoteNote

    MWSURLLink, MeetingSubjectTextBox, MeetingLocationTextBox, DTSTARTTextBox, DTENDTextBox, and CreateWorkspaceButton are all interface elements that are on a form in the Visual Basic project.

    Private Sub UpdateMeetingButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles UpdateMeetingButton.Click
     ws.Credentials = myCache.DefaultCredentials()
     ws.Url = MWSURLLink.Text + "/_vti_bin/meetings.asmx"
     Sequence.ToString("0")
     ws.UpdateMeeting(UID, Sequence, "2003-03-27T15:00:00-08:00",     MeetingSubjectTextBox.Text, MeetingLocationTextBox.Text,     DTSTARTTextBox.Text, DTENDTextBox.Text, False)
    End Sub
