Access Device Contacts With Delphi XE5 Firemonkey On Android And IOS


Pavel J. wrote in with a combined cross platform component for accessing the mobile device contacts with Delphi XE5 Firemonkey on Android and IOS. The original source code comes from two different components (one for IOS and one for Android) that I had built on oDesk and this combines them into a single component. It also brings in the RequestAccess function from DPF IOS for requesting access to the IOS device contacts. On the IOS side the component wraps the AddressBook and AddressBookUI API from Apple. On the Android side the component wraps the Android Contacts Provider functionality. The goal of the original components is to iterate through the name, phone number, and or email address of each contact in the contact lists. This component should also work in AppMethod and Delphi XE6 without any problems as well.
Head over and check out the full blog post of the combined contacts component for mobile devices.
