Open WAP/Web page with browser
Following code shows how you can open the phones WAP/Web browser in your own application, by just supplying Web address to browser.
const TInt KBrowserUid = 0x1020724D;
const TInt KBrowserUid = 0x10008D39;
void BrowseWAPWEB+PageL(const TDesC& aAddr)
TUid id( TUid::Uid( KBrowserUid ) );
TApaTaskList taskList( CEikonEnv::Static()->WsSession() );
TApaTask task = taskList.FindApp( id );
if ( task.Exists() )
HBufC8* param8 = HBufC8::NewLC(aAddr.Length() );
// Uid is not used
task.SendMessage( TUid::Uid( 0 ), *param8 );
// connect to AppArc server
appArcSession.StartDocument(aAddr, TUid::Uid( KBrowserUid ),id);
This code opens the Web browser in 3rd edition phones, and the WAP browser with older platform devices. To open the page with WAP browser also in 3rd edition phones, just change the code to use 0x10008D39 also with 3rd edition devices.
