Overview

Symbian applications can get the current editing state. This information is displayed as an editing state indicator in the status pane. Some applications may want to indicate the editing state in a custom way in, e.g., their main pane. The following code snippet can be used to handle such situations.

Solution

The solution is to use the CAknEnv class to get the current editing state indicator.

struct S_uid: public TUid
{
S_uid(int i){ iUid = i; }
};
//Get a reference the indicator container using the CAKnEnv class.
MAknEditingStateIndicator *ei = CAknEnv::Static()->EditingStateIndicator();
CAknIndicatorContainer *ic = ei->IndicatorContainer();
//Check which editing state is active
if(ic->IndicatorState(S_uid(EAknNaviPaneEditorIndicatorT9)))
{
// T9 Mode
...
}
else if(ic->IndicatorState(S_uid(EAknNaviPaneEditorIndicatorQuery)))
{
// Pen Mode
...
}
 
const char *cp;
if(ic->IndicatorState(S_uid(EAknNaviPaneEditorIndicatorLowerCase)))
{
// Lower case alphabet mode
...
}
else if(ic->IndicatorState(S_uid(EAknNaviPaneEditorIndicatorUpperCase)))
{
// Upper case alphabet mode
...
}
else if(ic->IndicatorState(S_uid(EAknNaviPaneEditorIndicatorTextCase)))
{
// Text Auto-case mode (Abc)
...
}
else if(ic->IndicatorState(S_uid(EAknNaviPaneEditorIndicatorNumberCase)))
{
// Numeric mode
...
}
