Since 4.0
Until 4.2

As of January of 2017 the BridgeIt project has been deprecated. As a result, this component has been removed from ICEfaces as of the 4.2 release.

The mobi:sms component renders a button that launches the Bridgeit application on the user's device to send an SMS message.

Getting Started

For best results, add to the page a field to enter the telephone number to send the SMS to and another field to enter the message itself. These fields can be either plain HTML elements or ACE components such as ace:textEntry and ace:textArea. Make sure you give an id to them, then, add the mobi:sms tag and reference these fields by their ids in the numberInputId and messageInputId attributes.

	<label for="smsNumber">Phone Number: </label>
	<input type="text" id="smsNumber" />
	<br />
	<label for="smsMessage" style="vertical-align: top;">Message: </label>
	<textarea id="smsMessage" />
	<br />
	<mobi:sms id="smsButton" messageInputId="smsMessage" numberInputId="smsNumber" buttonLabel="Send SMS"/>
