Note.pngNote: These files are extended from source file of XQSysInfo API. More clearly, i have just edited some file of XQSysInfo API to get Network name and Operator name. XQSysInfo::network() gives network name and XQSysInfo::operatorName() gives operator name.

Headers required

 #include <XQSysInfo>

.pro file

All source files are automatically added to .pro file by carbide, so need to add the libraries and capability only.

symbian:LIBS += -letel3rdparty \
-lsysutil \
-lefsrv \
symbian:TARGET.CAPABILITY = ReadDeviceData


XQSysInfo* sysInfo = new XQSysInfo(this);
/* show network name on label */
ui.label->setText("Network Name: " + sysInfo->network());
/* show operator name on label */
ui.label_2->setText("Operator Name: " + sysInfo->operatorName());


The code snippet is expected to show Network name and Operator name on screen as showm bellow.
