Description

Sometimes applications need to get notifications about the change of the application in focus or launching of another application.


Solution

The notifications can be enabled using the following code:

In the constructL of the AppUi, add the following lines:

//To get notifications about Focus change events
iCoeEnv->RootWin().EnableFocusChangeEvents();
//To get notifications about launching of other applications
iCoeEnv->RootWin().EnableGroupChangeEvents();


After these functions are called, the events are delivered to the window server every time the particular event occurs. The code to handle the notifications is as follows:

  void CMyAppUi::HandleWsEventL( const TWsEvent& aEvent,  
CCoeControl* aDestination )
{
if(aEvent.Type() == EEventFocusGroupChanged)
{
//Focus change event
//Handling to be done here
}
else if(aEvent.Type() == EEventWindowGroupsChanged)
{
//Group change event (launching of other applications)
//Handling to be done here
}
CAknAppUi::HandleWsEventL(aEvent,aDestination);
}
