    Hi everybody,

    I want to write an App that should have some sort of sms functionally. I tested to write a normal sms in android and there you get the compose-screen where you can write your sms (tested in android 1.6).

    Therefore I have some questions:
    • How can I make an EditText-view to behave like the one at this screen. If you type something android searches your contacts and suggests you the contacts that matches your search. I think there is a way to use this functionality without writing it again. Am I right?
    • How can I get the field "Type to compose" including the send-button. And what do I have to do, so that this field will always stay at the bottom - but always stay above the virtual keyboard when it is drawn?
    • Is it possible to use the activity for writing an sms? Which intent do I have to use?

    I hope some of you guys can help me. I'm quite new here but have read a lot of stuff at the developers-pages. But I didn't found an answer there ...


    Ah sorry guys. I just saw that I've posted this thread in the wrong section. I should have posted it in the dev-section. Sorry about that. Can a mod please move this thread? Thanks.
