    Collect freeform text

    QUESTION 1:
    I would like to create an application that collects freeform text from the user. When the user selects an element from Options menu, it should trigger entering text in a text box.

    For e.g, when the user selects the web icon from the emulator, it opens up a text box where text can be entered. I would like to implement something like this and place that element in the Options menu.

    I tried searching the Options Menu API classes but could not find a specific function.

    Please help as to how this can be implemented.

    QUESTION 2:
    What is the way to check if the device supports bluetooth connectivity through an application? Is there a function that I can call in order to get the state of the device (i.e whether bluetooth enabled or not)?

    QUESTION 3:
    Is there any special consideration that needs to be made when I develop applications for the Nokia E70?? Any additional parameters that I would need to pass in order to develop appplications for the E70???


    Please help


    With Regards
    Sanjith

    Re: Collect freeform text

    Hi,
    For your first question:
    Yes you can have such a feature. You can define the action for your Menu options in your HandleCommandl() of your AppUi class where you can invoke a dialog using any avkon dialog class for e.g: CAknQueryDialog

    Second Question:
    You can find the state of Bluetooth whether it is On or Off using CenRep keys
    CRepository *crepository = CRepository::NewL(KCRUidBluetoothPowerState);
    TInt BluetoothStatus=0;
    User::LeaveIfError( crepository->Get(KBTPowerState, BluetoothStatus) );

    Third Question:
    Its a very vague question that you have asked.Can you mention in details what exaclty are you looking for developing in E70??

    Hi,

    let me paraphrase your question
    Are you asking whether is it possible to show editor on options menu or launch the editor from options menu?
