    Question how to call phone (Symbian Belle) apps and functions i.e.. dialer?

    Hi,

    how can I let phone apps and functions be presented to the user via code? I'm on Belle. For example the phone dialer or the contacts.

    Imagine a shortcut application.

    Not quite because I don't use Qt Quick. (I want to have the default functionality executed, ie. default dialer, default contacts book etc.). But thank you. I'll have a look around there.

    You could check view swithing functionality, anyway, not all application (or functionality of any application) are usable from 3rd party applications.

    hi, what do you mean by view switching functionality? I tried looking through the resources mentioned without success. Maybe this is because I've been unable to phrase a good description of what I'm looking for. This is why I'd like to ask it directly:

    How can I open the dialer which is usually opened by the green phone button?
    How can I open the music player application (on Belle)?

    And others I might figure out myself when I know above.

    basically you can use views from some external application as explained in: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...lication_views

    if you want to launch applications, with or without document to open, you could use RApaLsSession for it

    Hi, I've read about mixing Qt and Symbian C++ so I think I can go forward and use RApaLsSession. It is supported by Belle? Thank you.

    in general Belle is just Symbian^3 upgrade, AFAIK RApaLsSession has been supported in all Symbian OS versions (I'm counting anything newer than ER5 as Symbian OS)

    thank you. See my uid request post as a follow-up question (for those interested), I don't know how the uids of the apps I want to launch.

    Here's what I found: http://library.developer.nokia.com/t...65%73%73%22%20

    I answered in the UID thread as well, anyway with Music player, you would not need to know the UID, basically you would simply launch the file and let the system take care of actually lauching the default handler, this basically would be the case with any file based launching.

    Well, I want to open the player without file. I would select a file from within the player. Just like when you tap the player icon in the default interface.
