    Could I add a new input mode into the phone?

    Hi all, I'm a beginner of Nokia development. I have a project to port a new input mode developed in MS windows platform to Nokia phone. Is it possible? and which tool should I choose, J2ME or C++ ?

    Thanks so much!!

    Hi zhouhuayu,

    Check the Javadocs documentation for javax.microedition.lcdui.TextField, "Input Modes" section. Is that what you're talking about?

    Also, JME is for Nokia Series 40, 60 and 80 phones. Symbian C++ is available only to S60 and Series 80 phones.

    Hope it helps!

    BR,

    Hi,

    Does it involve a new hardware interface/input method? Is that what you're talking about?

    Hi zhouhuayu,

    Nokia or any other manufacturers will not allow you to edit their native api.For eg; in this case are u thinking to edit the default textfield in the phone and use ur own textfield. If so this is not possible.

    Re: Could I add a new input mode into the phone?

    Hi. Thank all, you're so kind. I think my meaning is wrong in English.

    I have a new input method for Chinese character. The Nokia phone already has some input methods for Chinese character like Pinyin which is developed and deployed by the Nokia team. (CJK, and other east Asia langurage has the input problems)

    Can I program to add the new input method so that the controls like Textfield an Textbox can has this input method ?

    Sorry for my confused express.

    Thanks so much.

    Hi,

    As posted earlier you can't edit the native api from j2me.So that u can add a new input mode to textfield & textbox.
    But this may be possible from Symbian C++. I am not sure. so please ask this thread in the Symbian C++ group as well. They may be able to help u.

    Hi,

    Also, in addtion to that be aware that if you're going for Symbian C++ it means only S60 and Series 80 phones.

    Re: Could I add a new input mode into the phone?

    Thank two nice guys. Sorry, I'm not familiar with j2me. I find some information that in j2se there is a input method framework in the package java.awt.im etc. But j2me seems not including this package, and in jsr 290 java.awt.im will be added into j2me and it is just a specification not a implement.

    I still hear somebody has develop a new input method into Nokia phone, I don't know if it is true.

    It is make me headache that my project require in Nokia series 40 platform, I think it is wrong at the beginning.

    Thanks so much, all you said are very helpful !!!
