Middleware SDK for .Net 4.5+

The Middleware SDK for .NET is a collection of classes that implement the rest api for the payment engine cloud solution. It allows developers to quickly create applications in .Net that take advantage of the payment engine middleware.

Middleware Class

Middleware Constructor

Constructor for the middleware class. To instantiate the middleware object, you will need an API Key and PIN which can be created in the merchant console. You also have the option of specifying the gateway host you would like to use.

public Middleware(String apiKey, String pin, String host="www.swipebox.io")
Parameter Type Description
apiKey String The API Key (aka SourceKey) created in the merchant console.
pin String API PIN set in the merchant console.
host String Gateway host to use. Defaults to primary production gateway. For sandbox use "sandbox.swipebox.io"

Example

try
{
   Middleware client = new Middleware("_hxEwTCy4UPSTp7sL5V69fa2Uu5Gzrfu", "1234", "sandbox.swipebox.io");
} catch(MiddlewareException ex) { 
   Console.WriteLine("Error instantiating middleware: " + ex.ToString());
}

Exceptions

Will throw a MiddlewareException.

Code Message Notes
Invalid API Key The key parameter was not set to a valid api key.
An API Pin is required The pin parameter must be set to the pin assigned to the api key. If no pin has been set for the api key, log into the merchant console and set one.
Invalid gateway hostname The host parameter must be set to a valid hostname for the gateway. It is the hostname only, do not include https://

RegisterDevice

Starts the registration process for a new terminal. The callback delegate will be called with a middleware device object that includes the "PairingCode" parameter. This code is entered by the user into the payment terminal to complete the pairing process. This method is only needed if the developer wishes to support registering new terminals. Alternately, terminals can be registered in the Device Manager section of the Merchant Console.

public void RegisterDevice(String TerminalName, Action<Device> callback, Action<MiddlewareException> onError, String RegistrationType="standalone")
Parameter Type Description
TerminalName String The name of the terminal chosen by the user/developer. This can be used to distinguish between multiple devices.
callback Action Delegate called when registration request is accepted and pairing code is available.
onError Action Delegate called if an error occurs.
RegistrationType String Type of device registration. Defaults to "standalone".

Example

client.RegisterDevice("Register 1",(device) => {
   Console.WriteLine("Pairing code: " + device.PairingCode);
   Console.WriteLine("Device Key: " + device.DeviceKey);
}, (emw)=> {
  Console.WriteLine("error: " + emw.Message);
});

Exceptions

The onError delegate will be called if an error occurs.

Code Message Notes

LoadDeviceByKey

Loads a Device object for an existing DeviceKey. The DeviceKey is returned when registering the device with RegisterDevice. The DeviceKey is also available in the Device Manager screen under the Settings section of the merchant console.

public void LoadDeviceByKey(String DeviceKey, Action<Device> callback, Action<MiddlewareException> onError=null)
Parameter Type Description
DeviceKey String Key that uniquely identifies a device.
callback Action Delegate called when device has been loaded.
onError Action Delegate called if an error occurs.

21121 Unknown device key ... The DeviceKey did not match a device on the server

See also: Common Exceptions

Example

client.LoadDeviceByKey("sa_0nr0qWGWrEQzALVjFkTeptSWj9NnE", (x) => { Device device = x; Console.WriteLine("Device load: " + device.Name); }, (emw)=> { Console.WriteLine("error: " + emw.Message); }); [/code]

LoadDevices

Loads all Devices.

public void LoadDevices(Action<Device> callback, Action<MiddlewareException> onError=null)
Parameter Type Description
callback Action Delegate called when each device has been loaded.
onError Action Delegate called if an error occurs.

Device Class

Parameter Type Description
DeviceKey String Key that uniquely identifies a device.
Name String Developer/merchant assigned device name
Status String Current device status
PairingCode String If device has not been paired yet, this parameter contains the pairing code needed to be entered on terminal to complete registration.
PairingExpiration DateTime Date/Time that the pairing code will expire. The device will automatically be deleted if not paired by this time.
Config TerminalConfig Terminal configuration. Controls the payment processing features, such as contactless payments, EMV and PIN debit.
Settings DeviceSettings Settings not related to payment processing, such as whether to allow sharing the device between multiple merchants.
Details DeviceDetails Contains details about the registered terminal, such as the model and serial number.

StartTransaction

Sends a payment request to the terminal. Returns a PaymentRequest object that can be used to access the current status of the payment or cancel the transaction.

public PaymentRequest StartTransaction(Transaction Request, Action<String,TransactionResult> onTransactionComplete, Action<String> onStatusUpdate, Action<MiddlewareException> onError)
Parameter Type Description
Request TransactionRequest Transaction details such as amount.
onTransactionComplete Action Method that is called once the device has refreshed. Passes a String containing the current device status
onStatusUpdate Action Method that is called once the device has refreshed. Passes a String containing the current device status
onError Action Method that is called if an exception occurs. Note: this is only called for communication and library issues. If the transaction is declined, the customer cancels the transaction or any other processing related error occurs, onTransactionComplete will be called.

Example

TransactionRequest tran = new TransactionRequest()
{
    Command = "cc:sale",
    Amount = "10.00"
};
request = device.StartTransaction(tran,
    (status, result) =>
    {
      Console.WriteLine("Status: " + status);
        if(result != null)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Transaction " + result.Result);
            if (result.ResultCode.Equals("A")) Console.WriteLine("  AuthCode: " + result.AuthCode);
            else Console.WriteLine("  Error: " + result.Error);
        }
    },
    (status) =>
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Status: " + status);
    },

    }, 
  );

ToJSON

ResetPairing

Unlinks the devicekey from the terminal and generates a new pairing code. The terminal will go back to the pairing screen and the device key can be then be paired to either the same terminal or a new one. This method allows for switching hardware terminals without needing to switch to a new devicekey.

public void ResetPairing(Action<PairingCode> callback, Action<MiddlewareException> onError)
