    Smile How to add sub menu items to the Contacts application

    Hi,

    I want to add some option item to the "Contacts" application,

    Open "Contacts" -> Press "Options" -> Open "Call" Menu Item ->

    "Call" Menu Item -> Voice Call
    .........................-> Video Call
    .........................-> [ X Call Item]
    .........................-> [ Y Call Item]

    How can I add "[ X Call Item]" and "[ Y Call Item]" as the "Sub menu item" of "Call" Menu Item ?

    I am using S60 3rd FP2 SDK, please give me a guide on how to do this.

    Thanks in advance.

    The required API is not present in the SDK-s, you can try getting it via the technical support: Resources above, Technical support (http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resources/Support/ is the link). It will cost some money though.

    Is there another alternative method to do it ?

    For example, using the event model to monitor what application is active and which option the user is pressed , is it possible ?

    Those events (menu handling, etc.) are internal to the application, the operating system does not track them. Theoretically you can track the happenings of an application via key capturing, and checking the screen contents, emulating extra menu items this way is just messy. When the given menu is supposed to appear, in theory you can suddenly bring your own application into the front, displaying its own menu, but it is very complicated.

    Thanks, now I have known the limitation for development on S60 3rd, but I want to ask another related Plug-In question,

    There is "Tools" -> "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "FM Radio",

    Can I add custom application by using the public SDK ?
    For example, "Tools" -> "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "My Custom Radio".

    That is the Settings Framework API (at least this is what I think), it is available as a plug-in: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...DK_API_Plug-in
