// Custom message
class TViewParameter
TInt32 iId;
TBuf<32> iName;
TTime iDate;
const TUid KView1Id = {1};
const TUid KView2Id = {2};
const TUid KCustomMessageUid= {2}; // Your custom message uid

Source, sending custom package buffer message

// Create parameter
TViewParameter param;
param.iId = 1;
// Create package buffer
TPckgBuf<TViewParameter> package(param);
// Activate another view
AppUi()->ActivateLocalViewL(KView2Id, KCustomMessageUid, package);

Source, receiving custom package buffer message

void CSecondView::DoActivateL(const TVwsViewId& aPrevViewId,
TUid aCustomMessageId, const TDesC8& aCustomMessage)
// Create Container
if (!iContainer)
iContainer = new (ELeave) CMyViewContainer2;
iContainer->ConstructL( ClientRect() );
AppUi()->AddToStackL( *this, iContainer );
// 1. Check aCustomMessageId to handle aCustomMessage
// 2. You could check aPrevViewId if you were curious to know
// from where this view was called from.
if (aCustomMessageId==KCustomMessageUid)
// Create package buffer and copy received parameter in it
TPckgBuf<TViewParameter> package;
// Read value from package buffer
TViewParameter param;
param = package();
// TODO: Do something with received param data


Package buffer data sent and received between the two views.
