SimToolkit Hierarchy [experimental]

Service		org.ofono
Interface	org.ofono.SimToolkit
Object path	[variable prefix]/{modem0,modem1,...}

Methods		dict GetProperties()

			Returns properties for the SimToolkit object.  See the
			properties section for available properties.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments

		array{byte} GetIcon(byte id)

			Returns the icon data for icon identified by id.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments

		void SelectItem(byte item, object agent)

			Selects an item from the main menu, thus triggering
			a new user session.  The agent parameter specifies
			a new agent to be used for the duration of the
			user session.

		void RegisterAgent(object path)

			Registers a default agent to be used for SIM initiated
			actions such as Display Text, Get Inkey or Get Input.
			These can typically occur when a special SMS is
			received and might not involve interaction from the

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments

		void UnregisterAgent(object path)

			Unregisters the default agent.  If no agent is
			registered then unsolicited commands from the SIM
			are rejected.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments

Signals		PropertyChanged(string property, variant value)

			Signal is emitted whenever a property has changed.
			The new value is passed as the signal argument.

Properties	string IdleText

			Contains the text to be used when the home screen is
			idle.  This text is set by the SIM and can be changed
			at any time.

		array{struct{string, byte}} MainMenu

			Contains the items that make up the main menu.  This
			is populated by the SIM when it sends the Setup Menu
			Proactive Command.  The main menu is always available,
			but its contents can be changed at any time.

		string MainMenuTitle

			Contains the title of the main menu.

		array{byte} Icons

			Contains the identifiers of all available icons for
			this SIM.

SimToolkitAgent Hierarchy [experimental]

Service		unique name
Interface	org.ofono.SimToolkitAgent
Object path	freely definable

Methods		byte RequestSelection(string title, byte icon_id,
					array{struct(string, byte)} items,
					int16 default)

			Tells the agent to ask the user to select an item
			from the menu.  The default is set the the default
			item index or -1 if no default is provided.

			This function should return the index of the item or
			an error given below.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

			Implementation notes:

			- Data / Navigation type not indicated
			- Soft key preferred not indicated
			- Help available ignored

		void DisplayText(string text, byte icon_id, boolean urgent)

			Tells the agent to display text from the SIM.  The
			boolean urgent parameter tells the agent whether this
			is an urgent message and all other messages should be
			cleared prior to the display of this text.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

			Implementation notes:

			- High / normal priority indicated by urgent

			- The clear message after delay / wait for user to
			  clear flags are handled as follows.  If the wait for
			  user flag is set, then oFono sets a higher timeout
			  for the Agent DisplayText method call.  It will then
			  call Cancel() on the agent after this timeout
			  expires and the "No response from user" terminal
			  response is sent.  If the agent returns earlier from
			  this method call, a terminal response "Command
			  "performed successfully" is sent.

			  It might be required to pass a flag to the UI to
			  hint it that allocation of an 'acknowledgement'
			  button is required in the case of a longer timeout.
			  However, the UI can figure this out itself as well
			  based on a timer threshold.  More input needed.

			- Immediate Response indication is handled internally,
			  terminal response is sent immediately and no other
			  indication is given to the user / agent.  Response
			  from this method call is ignored and a short
			  timeout is used for the method call.  Once another
			  proactive command arrives, and the DisplayText is
			  still pending, Cancel() is called.

		string RequestInput(string alpha, byte icon_id,
				string default, byte min, byte max,
				boolean hide_typing)

			Tells the agent to request an input string from the
			user.  The alpha parameter and icon_id gives context
			to the user.  The default string contains the suggested
			default by the SIM.  The min and max parameters contain
			how many characters the user should enter.  The
			parameter hide_typing indicates whether user's typing
			should be opaque.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

			Implementation notes:

			- It is still unclear how to handle gsm vs ucs2
			  accepted alphabet selection.  Can the reduced
			  character set functionality from SMS be applied
			  here?  If not, then an extra gsm vs ucs2 acceptance
			  argument needs to be added.

		string RequestDigits(string alpha, byte icon_id,
					string default, byte min, byte max,
					boolean hide_typing)

			Same as GetInput but only digit characters (0-9, *#+)
			are expected.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

		string RequestKey(string alpha, byte icon_id)

			Tells the agent to request a single input key from
			the user.  The alpha parameter contains the context
			for the request.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

		string RequestDigit(string alpha, byte icon_id)

			Same as above, but only digits (0-9, *#+) are

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

		boolean RequestConfirmation(string alpha, byte icon_id)

			Asks the agent to get confirmation from the user.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.GoBack

		boolean ConfirmCallSetup(string information, byte icon_id)

			Asks the agent to request user to confirm an
			outgoing call setup.  If confirmed, the next new
			outgoing call reported by VoiceCallManager will
			have the Information and Icon properties set to
			inform the user.  Hanging up before the call is
			connected will cause EndSession reply to be sent.

			Possible Errors: [service].Error.SimToolkit.EndSession

		void Cancel()

			Asks the agent to cancel any ongoing operation in
			progress.  This is usually either because the agent
			is taking too long to respond or the Sim Application
			has terminated the session.

		void Release()

			Agent is being released, possibly because of oFono
			terminating, SimToolkit interface torn down or modem
			off.  If the agent is registered as a global agent,
			no UnregisterAgent call is expected.
