Thank you N/A. I think I will install Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0.
here is what I did before:
I installed Series 60 2nd Edition SDK FP 2, MIDP 1.0 (for java) and 1.0 (for C++)...
Both of them include the emulator. My java runtime env. is jre-1_5_0_02-windows-i586-p.
I think I will not go for java, I will go for C++ instead. But having the jre doesn't hurt right?
Now all I need is to install Microsoft Visual Studio. Then what would the next step?
Thank you so much....

Before installing visual studio I wanted to read the hlep file of the "Series 60 2nd Edition SDK for Symbian OS Supporting Feature Pack 2 For C++ Supporting Microsoft Visual C++ and Borland C++BuilderX: Getting Started Guide" (long name huh? ).

I am stuck at the very beginning :( ...

it tells me tow write "devices" on my command prompt (in order to determine what my default SDK is), however when I type it i get the following message:

'perl' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Ok, I thought I neede perl interpreter. I went to perl.com and downloaded perl.5.8.6 (stable version)... but it still gives me the same error...please help ...

i also get the same eeror when I do the following:
"Open the command line window and enter to the following folder: <SDK_installation_directory>\Series60Ex\helloworld basic\group\
Enter following command:
makmake helloworldbasic.mmp vc7

(This will create the Visual C++ project files in the \helloworldbasic\group\ subdirectory.) ...but it gives me the 'perl' error!!!

Is Perl installed properly (with the Perl bin directory in the PATH so that it can be located)? What does the command perl -v say?

hmm, I think it is not. In which Path should I install the perl bin directory? "perl -v" command gives the same error. Should I uninstall and reinstall the perl or can I do path setting without un/re-install?

Just add the Perl bin directory (where ever you installed it) to the PATH environment variable (Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment variables).

Using Windows XP is OK. What version of Visual C++ do you have and which SDK version did you download?

First of all, this thread topic is "Getting Started with Symbian C++"...

Then, I'm pretty sure that you can't both learn MobileVB and create such an app in 9 days.

In addition, I doubt you can do that level of programming with MobileVB in the first place. For low-level functionality access, you must use C++.

It might be best if you just go to the shop (http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/shop/) and buy BlackList or BlackLister, instead (assuming you have a phone supported by them, in which case you may need a new phone, too).

Anyway, for MobileVB stuff, start looking on http://www.appforge.com/

The "VB" in MobileVB means "Visual Basic", which is a Microsoft programming language quite different from C++. With AppForge Crossfire (formerly MobileVB) tools some applications written in Visual Basic can be made for Symbian operating system (OS) based phones.

But, to do what you are trying to do, you must use C++.

If you are unfamiliar with C++ on Symbian based devices, it will take you a couple of months (at least) to get up to speed, if you already know programming and the C++ language.

If you don't, it will take longer, because you also have to learn to program and a programming language; one has to learn to walk before one can run.

For C++ development information, start with tools and info on http://forum.nokia.com and http://www.symbian.com/developer

I'm afraid, however, that from your description it seems that with the time remaining and the lack of skills, your mission is not likely to succeed (at least not by April 20th this year, but maybe 2006). Sorry.

yes I know c++ language but not all about this language

I will try to learn more and more

our teacher expanded the time to 20/5/2005

soooooo
can i study this
I think that I must know only the commands for programming language to block number phone , I don't think that I must know all the commands
are you agree with me

I happy from you because you tell me the truth

thank u very very much

but i'll ask u
can I do this program in this time 25 dayes

Buy this book (it will get you up to speed faster): http://www.emccsoft.com/technology/series60.html

In any case, to do what you want to do, you will in all likelihood have to resort to using undocumented APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). Since they are undocumented, discovering them and making use of them on your own is not easy for someone not familiar with the tools and techniques available and with little experience.

I think you should consider doing a program with a less difficult/ambitious goal first (one that depends only on documented APIs and perhaps solves a well-known problem for which there is easy to find examples; a simple game, a dictionary app, or something).

Once you know how to do that type of programs, you can "graduate" to more challenging/difficult things. As I said earlier: you can't run, until you learn to walk first.
