System Utility (sysutils) API provide functions to retrieve software and language package versions, Multi Media Card (MMC) and Flash File System (FFS) drive letters, device type information (e.g., manufacturer name, model name and model code) and the Symbian platform version number. It also provides functions to check whether disk space has reached a critical level.
The DLL that provides the functionality and the library to which your code must link is identified below.
System Utility (sysutils) API consists of SysUtil class and its six static functions.
Three functions supply the information required to display the version of phone software being used. This depends on the currently installed language package.
GetSWVersion() returns the current phone software version.
GetLangVersion() returns the currently installed language package.
GetLangSWVersion() returns the most recent phone software version compatible with the currently installed language package.
The remaining static functions check the drive space.
FFSSpaceBelowCriticalLevel() checks Flash File System (also called the system drive).
MMCSpaceBelowCriticalLevel() checks the Multi Media Card.
DiskSpaceBelowCriticalLevel() checks the drive storage (sometimes called disk drives).
NOTE : These functions require configuration of the RAM drive and non-RAM drives (disk drive, MMC, FFS) thresholds using patchable data. The patchdata for drive thresholds are set during the ROM build time using macros such as SYMBIAN_BAFL_SYSUTIL_RAM_DRIVE_CRITICAL_THRESHOLD and SYMBIAN_BAFL_SYSUTIL_OTHER_DISK_CRITICAL_THRESHOLD respectively. For more information on patchdata, refer to Patchable Constants section.
The key class of System Utilities is as follows:
