    Harmattan: How to listen for incoming sms event

    Hi,

    I understand that there is something like that for Symbian (as found here: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu..._in_WRT_Widget), but is there any example for Meego Harmattan that I can look at so that I can develop an app that is aware of incoming sms/mms/email event? I looked through the Developer Libraries, API Topics, API Libraries but couldn't find any explicit examples/documentations that say how to do it.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Lim

    If you mean Qt as development platform (and brought the WRT stuff as an example only), check Qt Mobility Project.

    Hi wizard_hu_, thanks for your reply.

    Checked and it doesn't seem to be there. I looked through the QtMobility at http://harmattan-dev.nokia.com/docs/...dex.html?tab=1. Or, I do not have enough understanding to locate it?

    I do not know Qt, but from the page you link:
    QtMessaging ... The API supports SMS, MMS, MIME Email and TNEF Email messages.
    However I do not know how much of it works on Harmattan (some part of the API set can be more complete for Symbian/S60).

    Re: Harmattan: How to listen for incoming sms event

    It says a lot about how to send sms, and how to retrieve sms. However, it doesn't say how to listen for new incoming sms event.

    Basically, I am looking for ways to be informed on the arrival of an sms instead of ways to read the content of the sms. As far as reading the content of the sms is concerned, QtMobility:Messaging does give a comprehensive support for it.

    When it comes to the "event" when an incoming sms is "received", there is hardly anything out there that I can refer to. I wonder if the Nokia Qt team can shed some light?

    The thread is moved to the Qt Mobility Project board now, let us hope the best.

    Hi,
    To get notifications of those events on harmattan you may be interested in commhistory.

    Here are a couple of links:
    Harmattan commhistory reference manual: http://harmattan-dev.nokia.com/docs/...lzdG9yeQ%3D%3D
    Introduction to commhistory: http://wiki.meego.com/Commhistory

    Re: Harmattan: How to listen for incoming sms event

    Thanks gnuton,

    This looks like what I need. Is libcommhistory part of the Qt Creator libraries that we get when we install Qt SDK? Or is it something that we need to download separately?
