implementation / multithreading ?

Hi Everyone,

 

I am trying to implement the notification module for C# Application. Having read a lot of topics here, I could not find an answer on my simple question.

 

What I want is to retrieve all Active notifications and make necessary parsing of Interface part with some values accordingly (change colors/flashing etc).

 

First of all: I do not have any web-service implemented to use a delivery point as WebService.

 

My question:  Should I implement additional thread in my application and, lets say, every 10 seconds make a request PI System for active notifications and make my actions upon the result ?

 

Actually, I do not want to go the  way with multithreading. For example, I am using the ActiveView Component for trends and I do not query or refresh anything to get my trends updated, it keeps the connection and works on a background.

 

It would be fine to have something similar to Notification.

 

Can I set like a callback / listener  to my function anywhere, so this will be called only when some Notification triggered ?

 

Can someone give me the idea / article or link to documentation where I can find  similar  solution ?

 

Thank you for your attention.

 

Oleg
