Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to display a manufacturer disclaimer when an application is launched for the first time. This behavior is required at least for VoIP applications that are meant to be sent to Symbian for signing.

In practice, the requested behavior is implemented by deleting the disclaimer file after it has been accepted for the first time. Every time the application is run, it is checked whether or not the file exists.

This snippet can be self-signed.

data\disclaimer.txt

Here is an example of the disclaimer text by Symbian for VoIP applications:

You are about to use <APPLICATION NAME>, which is
developed and owned by <YOUR COMPANY NAME>. The
manufacturer of this device shall have no liability for
any aspect of the application whatsoever, including its
performance, call routing, intellectual property rights
or support.

PKG file

Install the disclaimer file to the device by adding the following line to the PKG file:

"..\data\disclaimer.txt" - "!:\private\E9D7CF12\disclaimer.txt"

MMP file

The following libraries are required:

LIBRARY  bafl.lib

RSS file

RESOURCE DIALOG r_disclaimer_dialog
{
flags = EGeneralQueryFlags | EEikDialogFlagNoBorder | EEikDialogFlagNoShadow;
buttons = R_AVKON_SOFTKEYS_OK_CANCEL;

DLG_LINE
{
type = EAknCtPopupHeadingPane;
id = EAknMessageQueryHeaderId;
itemflags = EEikDlgItemNonFocusing;

{
headinglayout = R_AVKON_WML_SIGN_QUERY_HEADING_PANE;
};
},
DLG_LINE
{

id = EAknMessageQueryContentId;
control = AVKON_MESSAGE_QUERY
{
};
}
};
}

Postconditions

A manufacturer disclaimer is displayed when the application is launched for the first time. The user is given the option to continue with the launch or abort it. If the user decides to accept the disclaimer, the disclaimer file is deleted from the device.
