SMS example

This example code demonstrates how to send and receive SMS messages using the Messaging Framework APIs.


This updated C++ example demonstrates programmatical handling of SMS messages. Messages can be sent from the application and they can be received directly into the application (that is, catching incoming messages before the user gets any notification). In addition, messages can be deleted, copied, or moved to other folders of the message store (inbox, outbox, drafts).

Building and configuring

  • You can build the example from your IDE or the command line.

    If you use an IDE, import the bld.inf file of the example into your IDE, and use the build command of the IDE.

    If you use the command line, open a command prompt, and set the current directory to the source code directory of the example. You can then build the example with the SBSv1 build tools with the following commands:

    bldmake bldfiles

    abld build

  • For the emulator, the example builds an executable called smsexample.exe in the epoc32\release\winscw\<udeb or urel>\ folder.
