 Hi,


I have a question about the "content://sms/" provider.

I use it in my app but can't find any official documentation about it :-(

Is it to old? Or to new? Can I use it or is it deprecated and will 
removed in future?

It is not supported. It may not work on some devices. It may not work in
future versions of Android.

 It may also not work with third part SMS apps.

 Is there any official way of reading sms? I have been reading on some
pages and seems it was removed without any information on why, and it
has not been replaced with something new. What would be the reason of
removing it? hard to believe it is security if they left a
undocumented provider that is still usable.
Any thoughts?

You would have to ask the developer of each SMS application on each
phone that question.

For the Messaging application, there is no documented and supported
content provider for that client. And, that's not the only client.


Sometimes, it it because they are not ready to support the interface
for the next decade-plus.

Sometimes, it is because they want to give OEMs the freedom to replace
AOSP apps and do not want to tie the OEMs hands by forcing them to
implement certain APIs.

Sometimes, it is a matter of engineering priorities.

And, of course, as you note, sometimes it is tied to security.

There are probably other reasons as well -- those are the four I know
off off the top of my cold-fogged head.

Thanks!

2. long click

Can anyone point me to a code example that handles long clicks?  I can't
seem to find what I'm looking for in the Contacts app, but that's probably
because I don't know what to look for.
Thanks,
