How can I find out the software build version of a Symbian device?
How can I find out the software build version of a S60 device in numeric format?
The method SysUtil::GetSWVersion(TDes& aValue) returns the device software version information as a string. The same information is returned in a dialog when the sequence *#0000# is entered in phone idle view. Sometimes it is useful for an application to know the version information as integer values. The following code demonstrates how to extract the software version as unsigned integer values from the string:
#include <SysUtil.h> // link against sysutil.lib
void GetNumericSWVersionL(TUint& aMajor, TUint& aMinor, TUint& aBuild)
// Skip non-digit characters from the beginning
// Get major version value
// Next character should be '.'
if(parser.Get() != '.')
// Get minor version value
// If next char is '.' or '(', string contains
// also the build version
TChar next = parser.Get();
if(next == '.' | next == '(')
aBuild = 0;
