    Question platform services / messaging / sms content

    i'm having trouble getting the content of an sms:
    Code:
    msgObj = nokia.device.load("messaging");
    [...]
    var criteria = new Object();
    criteria.Type = 'Inbox';
    criteria.Filter = new Object();
    criteria.Filter.MessageTypeList = new Array();
    criteria.Filter.MessageTypeList[0] = 'SMS';
    msgObj.getList(updateCB, criteria, msgObj.SORT_BY_DATE, msgObj.SORT_DESCENDING);
    [...]
    function updateCB(msgiterator)
    {
    	try {
    		var i=1;
    		var sms;
    		while (sms = msgiterator.next()) {
    			[...]
    			document.getElementById('sender'+i).innerHTML = sms.sender+" ";
    			document.getElementById('subject'+i).innerHTML = sms.bodytext;
    			if (++i>4) break;
    		}
    	}
    	catch(e) {
    		alert("Messaging exception: " + e);
    	}
    }
    sms.time (not shown here for simplicity's sake) and sms.sender both work fine, but sms.bodytext returns "undefined" (as does sms.subject)
    i've also tried sms.BodyText (.time and .sender only work with lower case), which is what the api reference says (tho' it also says .Time and .Sender)

    * testing on n8 btw

    Re: platform services / messaging / sms content

    From the code its seems that you are loading PS 2.0 api and then passing criteria as it would be PS 1.0.

    Please test with the code below. It is written for PS 1.0.
    Works for me with N8.


    Code:
    var messaging_serviceObj = null;
    
    // Initializes Messaging service object
    function initMessaging() {
        // Obtain the service object
        try {
            messaging_serviceObj = device.getServiceObject("Service.Messaging",
                "IMessaging");
        } catch (ex) {
            alert("Service object cannot be found: " + ex);
        }
    }
    function messaging_getMessages() {
        var criteria = {
            Type: "Inbox",
            Filter: {
                MessageTypeList: ["SMS"]              
            }
        }
        try {
            // Get list of messages
            var result = messaging_serviceObj.IMessaging.GetList(criteria);
            if (result.ErrorCode != 0) {
                alert("Error in getting messages: " + result.ErrorMessage);
                return;
            }
        } catch (ex) {
            alert("Error in getting messages: " + ex);
            return;
        }
        
        var item;
    	var i=0;
        while ((item = result.ReturnValue.getNext()) != undefined) {
            i++;
    		var messageId = item.MessageId;
            var sender = item.Sender;
            var time = item.Time;
            var subject = item.Subject;
    		var body = item.BodyText;
    		
    		alert(messageId+"\n"+sender+"\n"+time+"\n"+subject+"\n"+body);
    		if(i>10)
    			break;		
        }
    }

    Re: platform services / messaging / sms content

    good catch - seems i've been reading both api's at the same time

    now tho' i get a "TypeError: Null value" from the .GetList()

    Code:
    device.getServiceObject("Service.Messaging", "IMessaging");
    [...]
    var criteria = {
    	Type: "Inbox",
    	Filter: { MessageTypeList: ["SMS"] }
    }
    var result = msgObj.IMessaging.GetList(criteria); // this throws the error
    figured i should be using ps 2.0 anyway, so did it like so, but i'm back to my original problem:
    Code:
    msgObj = nokia.device.load("messaging");
    [...]
    var criteria = new Object();
    criteria.Type = "SMS";
    msgObj.getList(updateCB, criteria, msgObj.SORT_BY_DATE, msgObj.SORT_DESCENDING);
    i get the time and sender, but not the content

    also, i'm a bit confused as to the capitalization - contrary to the documentation sms.Sender doesn't work, but sms.sender does

    Re: platform services / messaging / sms content

    When using PS 2.0 criteria.Type should be in lower case "criteria.type".
    In addition the messageInfo object has all the properties in lowercase.

    Code:
    while( (messageInfo = iterator.next()) ) {
    	list += messageInfo.message.type +"\n"+ messageInfo.sender +"\n"+ messageInfo.message.body +"\n\n";	
    }

    Re: platform services / messaging / sms content

    thanks, got it working - i guess the body & subject moving under message was another ps 2.0 thing and i was reading the wrong api...

    interestingly enough, criteria.type doesn't work for me; i get a deviceexception errcode 2 - criteria.Type does work (sure you're not confusing it with messageInfo.message.type ? )

    Re: platform services / messaging / sms content

    Good to know that you got it working

    I have used the type successfully in following way, to list messages from last two days.
    Code:
    	var past = new Date();		
    	past.setDate(past.getDate()-2); //last two days
    		
    	// filter received messages using MessageMatchingPattern
    	var matchpattern = {
    	       type: ["sms", "mms"],
    	       start: past
    	};	    
            var transactionId = messaging_so.getList(messaging_listMessages_callback, matchpattern, messaging_so.SORT_BY_DATE, messaging_so.SORT_ASCENDING, messaging_listMessages_error_callback);
    -Ilkka
