How can we check character codes for space and newline symbols?
Starting from S60 2nd Edition, FP2 and the Nokia 6630, these character codes have been changed to be the following:
It is possible to dynamically check what codes to use by checking if the current font includes these characters.
TUid fontUid = CEikonEnv::Static()->NormalFont()->TypeUid();
if(fontUid == KCFbsFontUid)
const CFbsFont* font =
const TUint8 *bitmap1, *bitmap2;
if(bitmap1 == bitmap2)
// glyph bitmap pointers for space + lf have
// the same value, pointing to the same 'undefined'
// bitmap -> Font does not have these chars
// Switch to using 0xF200 and 0xF201 as lf/space codes
