FPCAlertNotification.SignalEvent Method

ISA services use this method to signal an event, as a part of the alert service. If an alert exists for the event and the event is in a state where it can trigger an alert, actions will be taken to notify the administrator of the event. Third-party filters can also use this method to signal an event.
