Usage

The main difference from Structr.Operations package is that notice can handling by any of handlers while operation can handling by only one handler.
The basic usage is:
Create a notice class that inherits from INotice:
record UserSignedInNotice : INotice
{
public int UserId { get; init; }
public string IpAddress { get; init; }
}
Create a notice handlers class that inherits from INoticeHandler or NoticeHandler:
// Email handler for example.
class EmailUserSignedInNoticeHandler : INoticeHandler<UserSignedInNotice>
{
private readonly IDbContext _dbContext;
private readonly IEmailSender _emailSender;
public EmailUserSignedInNoticeHandler(IDbContext dbContext, IEmailSender emailSender)
{
_dbContext = dbContext;
_emailSender = emailSender;
}
public Task HandleAsync(UserSignedInNotice notice, CancellationToken cancellationToken)
{
User user = await _dbContext.Users.SingleOrDefaultAsync(x => x.Id == notice.UserId, cancellationToken);
await _emailSender.SendAsync(user.Email, quot;Signed in successfully with IP-address: {notice.IpAddress}");
}
}
// SMS handler example.
class SmsUserSignedInNoticeHandler : INoticeHandler<UserSignedInNotice>
{
private readonly IDbContext _dbContext;
private readonly ISmsSender _emailSender;
public SmsUserSignedInNoticeHandler(IDbContext dbContext, ISmsSender smsSender)
{
_dbContext = dbContext;
_smsSender = smsSender;
}
public Task HandleAsync(UserSignedInNotice notice, CancellationToken cancellationToken)
{
User user = await _dbContext.Users.SingleOrDefaultAsync(x => x.Id == notice.UserId, cancellationToken);
await _smsSender.SendAsync(user.PhoneNumber, quot;Signed in successfully with IP-address: {notice.IpAddress}");
}
}
The last step is to inject INoticePublisher service and use it:
class UserService
{
private readonly INoticePublisher _publisher;
public UserService(INoticePublisher publisher)
=> _publisher = publisher;
public async Task SignIn(string email, string password, string ipAddress)
{
User user = await FindUserAsync(email, password);
if (user != null)
{
/* Some sign in logic here */
var notice = new UserSignedInNotice { UserId = user.Id, IpAddress = ipAddress };
await _publisher.PublishAsync(notice);
}
}
}
Inherit from NoticeHandler class when you need synchronic-manner handler.
