The article shows how Softkeys (not CBA) can be changed dynamically. Either left or right or both can be changed.

Changing right softkey

Cba()->RemoveCommandFromStack(2, EBack);
Cba()->AddCommandToStackL(2,ECancel,_L("Cancel"));
Cba()->DrawDeferred();

So instead of handling EBack in HandleCommandL ECancel will be handled.

Similarly the left softkey can be changed by

Cba()->RemoveCommandFromStack(0, ESave);
Cba()->AddCommandToStackL(0,EOk,_L("Ok"));
Cba()->DrawDeferred();

Just remember

  • 0 - Left softkey
  • 2 - Right softkey
  • Header File - #include <eikbtgpc.h>
  • Link against - eikcoctl.lib


And you can also try this code for changing softkeys

Cba()->SetCommandL(0, EAknSoftkeyOk, _L("Ok"));
Cba()->DrawDeferred();
