    Exclamation How to mute incoming ringtone in S60 5th Edition?

    Hi

    In the past I was able to mute the incoming ringtone easily as follows:

    Code:
    TKeyEvent key;
    key.iModifiers = 0;
    key.iRepeats = 0;
    key.iCode = aCode;
    key.iScanCode = aScanCode;
    TApaTask::SendKey(key);
    This works fine for S60 3rd Edition devices (for the locales supported). For S60 5th Edition, and in particular the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, the right hand softkey is now "Reject" and there is a new button (not a softkey) for "Silent".

    Worse still is the fact that the Phone Client API is not present in the plugins for S60 5th Edition. So this is not an option either...

    So, does anyone know of a way to mute the incoming call ringtone?

    Thanks

    For this particular one, you can still experiment with the power of the copy command. In the worst case it will not work.

    Yeah, did try the famous "copy" strategy, but it didn't work ;-)

    It turns out that "PhoneClientExt.dll" is not present from S60 3rd Edition FP2 and onwards...

    So, no Phone Client API :-(

    Yep, I can corfirm that the API is removed from the FP2, though I currently can not remember any API that could be used instead.

    UPDATE: ok, not being lazy today, so checked the thing up, and appears that there is a Internal API that has been identified already, but it is not in the API plug-in (nor do I have any knowledge that it would be put in there), thus if you need access to it, you would need to open a API partnering case. Check the process of the API partnering from our wiki: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...nering_Program
