S60 Platform: FEP Example v2.0
- file name:
This C++ code example demonstrates how to create and install a custom Front End Processor (FEP). It consists of two components: FepSetup, which can be used to install/switch the active FEP, and FepExample, which contains the actual FEP implementation. FepExample contains a sample multi-tap input engine, which modifies the behavior of the mobile phone's numeric keys.
Note that because the active FEP is actually loaded by all applications, platform security (introduced in S60 3rd Edition) requires ALL-TCB capabilities, and thus the FepExample component has to be signed using the Manufacturer Approved Developer Certificate.
Note also that FEP might not be compatible with all S60 applications. The known issues are described in the release notes in the example package.
The example includes an AknEditStateIndicator.h header that is needed to define
MAknEditingStateIndicator. The header was not available in the S60 SDKs until
S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1.
Main classes: CCoeFep, CCoeFepPlugIn, CFepGenericGlobalSettings, MAknEditingStateIndicator.
