WINDEV Mobile and SMS messages
WINDEV Mobile allows you to easily send and read SMS messages with the SMS functions of WLanguage.
SMS (Short Message Service) commonly refers to text messages (up to 160 characters) sent to a cell phone.
: The characteristics of SMS messages are contained in the SMS structure
To be able to use the SMS functions, the application must be installed:
- on an Android phone.
- on an iOS phone.
The SMS message will be prepared by the WINDEV Mobile application, but it will be sent by the phone's native application.
Managing the different types of numbers
Two types of numbers can be used to send SMS messages:
- Short numbers (also called "National" numbers). These numbers can be accessed from the country only.
- Standard numbers (also called "International" numbers). These numbers can be accessed from anywhere.
Differences between GO mode and runtime
In GO mode (simulation on the development computer), a WLanguage error occurs during the call to an SMS function or when using a variable of the SMS structure.
WINDEV Mobile also allows you to easily manage phone calls using the following functions:
|tapiDialerCall||Opens the default telephony application (dialer) found on the phone and dials the specified number.|
|tapiDialerDisplay||Opens the default telephony application (dialer) and displays the specified number. No call is made.|
