Hi all,

I have a question. Is it possible to retrieve the contact list in Android and in Iphone via Gideros?

Thanks in advance


  • As far as I am aware (correct me if I'm wrong someone), this is not currently available in Gideros SDK although could be done using a plugin for each platform you require.
  • no one have ever tried it i guess. I have some experince in java android programming i think i can handle andorid part but iphone part i have no idea any help will be appreciated guys:D

    I will share my experiences in android part whenever i had some code in my hand.

  • @talis Looks like it. We have no idea about androids java but we can do the iOS plugin if we get some free time.

    What features would you like to have?
    i.e returning a table of names, showing the contact picker etc..

    What syntax would you like to use? As having the same syntax in Gideros for both plugins would be useful to avoid rewriting code for different platforms.

    @SimpleLoop sorry for the late answer.
    What i want to accomplish with this plugin in Android; (In Ios i don't have any idea:)
    -Like Viber or Whtasup i want to discover the contact list of the user.
    -Table of names and telephone numbers(primary) should have to return in pairs . To do this we can create a simple xml structure like this:
    <Title>SimpleLoop </Title>
    What do you say to xml part?

    I will start to dig the android part this week, it will be great if you will start to dig the ios part. :D

  • @Talis,
    using the Wax Plugin from Andy would give you access to a lot many things in iOS, I have a couple of blog posts on that at http://howto.oz-apps.com

    I am working out the subtleties of the AddressBook, calendar and MapKit. So those coming soon too.
