    Dialog to manually enter phone number or select from contacts

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me if there is a single dialog on S60 that will allow me to enter a phone number or to select one from the contacts DB. The functionality might be similar to the new message view of the messgaing application whereby you can input the phone number or selct from the contacts - however it would be in dialog form instead.
    Thanks,
    Brian

    why don't you go for making a dialog box using CEikEdwin , when user enters the no. and presses yes key, then handle it in offerkeyEventL function and make a call on that no.

    Hi,

    You need to implement it. As Vineet suggested, on KeyPress you can launch contacts and then read what user is selecting/selected and replace in your textbox

    If you want to enter a no. from phonebook in dialog box, then simply open a dialog box , press down or up key to go to the phonebook and select a no from there and show it up on dialog box.

    To open phonebook on up/down keypress, simply handle it in offerkeyEventL.

    hmm do you think this usage model is widespread/recommended by nokia style guides? how can a user find out that pressing up/down will take him to the contacts? i think common way would be to offer a menu.
