Opening a Connection based on User Selection

Extended Connection Preferences API can be used by applications to open a connection based on user selection.

When an application chooses to establish a connection based on user selection, Connection selection dialog needs to be enabled. Only the SNAPs and IAPs matching with bearer set are displayed for selection.

  1. Connect to socket server .
            RSocketServ ss;
  2. Open a RConnection object.
            RConnection conn;
    conn.Open( ss );
  3. Create a connection preference list and extended connection preferences object.
            TConnPrefList prefList;
    TExtendedConnPref preferences;
  4. Enable the Connection selection dialog to accept user queries using TExtendedConnPref::SetConnSelectionDialog() .
            preferences.SetConnSelectionDialog( ETrue );
  5. Append extended connection preferences into connection preference list.
            prefList.AppendL( &preferences );
  6. Start a connection with connection preferences.
            conn.Start( prefList );

The application is connected to the SNAP or IAP selected by the user.
