Following code snippet shows how to create Label control in Symbian C++.

[edit] Step 1: LabelTestAppView.h

  • Open your LabelTestAppView.h file.
  • Include entries for required header files.
#include <eiklabel.h>
  • Add required functions which will be needed for control.
TInt CountComponentControls() const;
CCoeControl* ComponentControl(TInt aIndex) const;
void PutTextL(const TDesC& aText); // To change text(user-inputted)
  • Declare object of Label:
private: // data
// ..
CEikLabel* iLabel;

[edit] Step 2: LabelTestAppView.cpp

  • Open your "LabelTestAppView.cpp" file.
  • Now in the ContructL() function of your LabelTestAppView.cpp file:
void CLabelTestAppView::ConstructL( const TRect& aRect )
{
// Create a window for this application view
CreateWindowL();
 
_LIT(KTextHelloWorld, "hello world");
iLabel = new (ELeave) CEikLabel;
iLabel->SetContainerWindowL( *this );
iLabel->SetTextL(KTextHelloWorld);
 
// Set the windows size
SetRect( aRect );
 
// Activate the window, which makes it ready to be drawn
ActivateL();
}
 
CLabelTestAppView::~CLabelTestAppView()
{
delete iLabel;
}
 
void CLabelTestAppView::SizeChanged()
{
//NOTE: the first time SizeChanged comes when iLabel has not created yet
if(iLabel)
iLabel->SetExtent( TPoint(0,0), iLabel->MinimumSize());
}
 
TInt CLabelTestAppView::CountComponentControls() const
{
return 1;
}
 
CCoeControl* CLabelTestAppView::ComponentControl(TInt aIndex) const
{
switch ( aIndex )
{
case 0:
return iLabel;
default:
return NULL;
}
}
 
//Call this function to change value of Label
void CLabelTestAppView::PutTextL(const TDesC& aText)
{
iLabel->SetTextL(aText);
}

Note: Do not forget to add an entry for eikcoctl.lib in your .mmp file.
