    Text to Smily converter

    Hello All,

    I am working on the application in which we can convert the texts to smily like ": )" -> like SMS in some devices.... does symbian (S60) provides supports for that...

    Re: Text to Smily converter

    Such feature has to be built into the viewer - which you can not modify. A partial solution you could try is reading the message, replacing the sequences with smiling Unicode characters (since every message on Symbian is stored in Unicode rich text), and storing the result.
    Since it takes some time to the user to react and open the message, this approach may work.
    The drawback is that such modified message may cause unexpected effects if the user tries to forward it (because of the presence of extended Unicode characters).

    Hi,

    It is possible but only if you create your own client application with your own text viewer/editor control - so it's a lot of work.

    Not really, because SMS messaging itself is already supported by the device, thus it also has its editor/viewer for SMS. And that one is not extensible.
