Default Programatically Detecting a SMS Sent

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to be notified of a text message being sent from the device. Registering for a change event for the sent folder or something similar for a text message not an email.

Default Adding SMS Listener throws IOException

I had previously created a class to send SMS messages that had been working perfectly until I added the listener. When the listener is added as soon as I start the thread it throws an IOException what am I doing wrong ?

Code:
private static final class SmsMessage
    {
        private String _address;
        private String _msg;

        public SmsMessage(String address, String msg)
        {
            _address = address;
            _msg = msg;
        }
       
        public Message toMessage(MessageConnection mc)
        {
            TextMessage m = (TextMessage)mc.newMessage(MessageConnection.TEXT_MESSAGE,"sms://" + _address);
            m.setPayloadText(_msg);
            return m;
        }
    } // SmsMessage
   
   private final class SendThread extends Thread
    {
        private static final int TIMEOUT = 500; // ms
        private Vector _msgs = new Vector(10); // Queue of 10
        private volatile boolean _start = false;

        // queue requests
        public synchronized void send(String address, String msg)
        {
            _start = true;
            _msgs.addElement(new SmsMessage(address, msg));
        }

        public synchronized void stop()
        {
            _stop = true;
            try {
                if ( _mc != null ){
                    _mc.close();
                }
            } // catch (IOException e ) {
                catch (Throwable t) {
                t.printStackTrace();
                System.exit(0);
            }
              
        }

        public void run()
        {
            try {
                //closed by the stop() method
                _mc = (MessageConnection)Connector.open("sms://");
               
                if (_mc != null)
                {
                    // set a listener to trap outgoing sms messages
                    _mc.setMessageListener(new OutboundSMSListener());
                }
                for(;;)
                {
                    while( !_start && !_stop)
                    {
                        try {
                            sleep(TIMEOUT);
                        } // catch (InterruptedException e) {

                                System.exit(0);
                            }
                    }
                    if ( _stop )
                    {

Hey Joel, I am creating a similar application. I am not sure why you're getting an exception. I suggest debugging it on the device.

On another note, have you figured out how to store the sent message in the Sent folder?
