    Hi Nisar,

     

    Yes this would be possible with the API

    One should always bear in mind if its worth doing that or just re keying that into the questions set but this is quite possible to achieve

    Is this part if the ABI motor insurers project? The move is away from the insured providing data and the insurer getting data from the dvla, mib etc.

    Hi John,

     

    Not specifically at this stage no although the API will enable us to link to almost anywhere so there is no reason that this could not be achieved.

    Thank you Colin,

    Would it be possible to access the api documentation and if possible any examples ?

    I would like to create a dynamic pricing system where the premium changes according to the data been supplied and there could be a lot of data for each client, I think that would make it difficult to do manually.

    Hi John,

     

    We are looking to create a telemetry based scheme, would you have an interest in looking at our proposal, once it is working ?

    On the subject of the API, it would be extremely useful if there were a guide I could look at. The feature is of great interest but I don't know where to start.

    Cheers.

    Hi Guys,

    I am working on a javascript project which requires use of our lookup tables. Can this be done with the API? Could you please provide some form of help quide to get me started? Juts this function would be fine for now.

    Cheers.

    Hi Mark,

    This could certainly be done with the new API although it's not finalised yet and we don't have documentation or a live service to publish yet :(

    However, there is already Javascript in SchemeServe used to pull lookup tables which you could adapt.  It's way outside the scope of this forum article and you're certainly breaking new ground here but if you look carefully at the code you should be able to extract Javascript from your own Get Quote page that currently pulls a list of trades (it's certainly done with AJAX already).  You'll need something like Firebug or to Inspect Element with Chrome or Safari dev tools.

    If you need any assistance adapting it please raise your request on the Javascript Forum so perhaps other script experts can lend a hand.  When our full API is available we'll also be able to provide official support for pulling lookups via Javascript .

    Best wishes,

     

    Adam
