Accessing messages and wall posts

Aug 2, 2007 at 1:27 PM
I see it's possible to get the message ID, is it possible to use this to get the actual content of the message?

Also can you get anything such as the wall post count or wall post content?

I have seen Desktop Apps out there that display a Notification of a Wall Post.
The GetNotifications method doesn't return Notification of a Wall Post.

How do they do it?

I noticed that there is a Wall Post Count Property on the user profile.
So, I suppose you can see if there is a difference in that value from previous checks.

This isn't ideal, though, because wall posts can be edited by the user.
