Global notes can sometimes be really handy to use, since they show the note in their own window group and can also be used inside tight loops where normal notes fail to show. They do cause focus change in the application and can lead to problems on some platforms if a global error note is trying to display itself while a global wait note is active. Also you can't switch between applications while showing a global note. For these reasons progress & wait notes should be used instead of global wait notes.

Following code sample shows an example use of the global note:
void ShowNoteL(const TDesC& aMessage)
void ShowGlobalNoteL(TAknGlobalNoteType aNoteType, const TDesC& aMessage)
iNote = CAknGlobalNote::NewL();
iNoteId = iNote->ShowNoteL(aNoteType,aMessage);
if(iNote && iNoteId >= 0)
iNoteId = -1;
With this code you need to have the following member variables included in your class declaration:
With the ShowGlobalNoteL() function the possible global note id values are:
