An Android module for Titanium Mobile that allows sending text messages.

branch: master
README.md

TiAndroidSMS Module

Description

This module extends the Appcelerator Titanium Mobile framework, allowing to send text messages directly from your app, by simply providing the recipient's phone number and the message body.

NOTE

This version of the module completely replaces the old one, which was not compatible with Titanium > 1.8.X. This version provides a new API and it has been built and used with Ti SDK 3.0.X

Building and installing the module

First, you must have your Android and Titanium Mobile SDKs in place, and have at least read the first few pages of the Android Module Developer Guide from Appcelerator.

Before building the module you must change the directory references you find in the build.properties file according to your filesystem layout.

The build process can be launched by simply running

# ant

from the module's code root directory.

As a result, the ti.android.sms-android-1.0.0.zip file will be generated in the dist/ directory.

You can either copy this file to $HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Titanium and reference the module in your application (the Titanium SDK will automatically unzip the file in the right place), or manually launch the command:

 unzip -u -o ti.android.sms-android-1.0.0.zip -d ~/Library/Application\ Support/Titanium/

For your convenience you'll find a pre-built module package in the dist/ directory.

Referencing the module in your Titanium Mobile application

Simply add the following lines to your tiapp.xml file:

<modules>
    <module platform="android">ti.android.sms</module>
</modules>

Accessing the module from JavaScript code

Loading the module

In order to access the module from JavaScript, you should do the following:

var smsMod = require('ti.android.sms');
Ti.API.info("module is => " + smsMod);

Registering events

smsMod.addEventListener('complete', function(e){
    Ti.API.info('Result: ' + (e.success?'success':'failure') + ' msg: ' + e.resultMessage);
    var result = 'unexpected result...';
    switch (e.result) {
        case smsMod.SENT: 
            result = 'SENT';
            break;
        case smsMod.DELIVERED: 
            result = 'DELIVERED';
            break;
        case smsMod.FAILED:
            result = 'FAILED';
            break;
        case smsMod.CANCELLED:
            result = 'CANCELLED';
            break;
    }

    alert('Message sending result: ' + result);
} );

Sending a message

Sending a message is as simple as:

var recipient = '+1 234 567 890';
var text = 'hello world';
smsMod.sendSMS(recipient, text);

The result of the operation can be tracked through the complete event previously registered.
