MOBITEK STK API version 6-04

STK API METHODS

The 1st important step is to call method Modem.Init() and obtain a return value of “1”. This is to establish connection between server (PC) and STK modem. This method is contained in the “Modem” class.

The “SIMToolKit” class contains 12 methods:

 

CloseSTK() as Boolean

  • To close, cancel or stop a STK transaction. It does not terminate the STK session.
  • Return value is:

= TRUE if successfully ended

= FALSE if not

Tip: use this method when you want to cancel a reload transaction.

 

ActivateSTK() as Boolean

    • To turn on the SIM Tool Kit (STK). This is the 2nd important step after Modem.Init(). If you do not call this method, then all other methods will fail to work.
    • Return value is:

= TRUE if activated

= FALSE if not

Tip: call this method once only. You do not need to call this for every reload/top-up transaction.

 

DeactivateSTK() as Boolean

  • To terminate or exit the STK session. You must call this method before calling SendSMS() or ReadSMS(), otherwise you cannot send nor read SMS.
  • Call this method before using methods and properties in SMS, USSD, Phonebook classes.
  • You must terminate the STK session before you can send SMS, read SMS, issue USSD command, and access Phonebook.
  • Return value is:

= TRUE if successful

= FALSE if not

 

MainMenuDisplay (MainMenuName As String, MainMenuList As String) as Boolean

  • To get main menu from STK. If return value is true, then the following values are retrieved:
    • MainMenuName
    • MainMenuList
  • Call this function only if

    STKStatus = STKMainMenu

    or

    ActivateSTK() = True

 

MainMenuSelect(ByVal ItemSelect As Integer) As Boolean

  • To select an item in main menu of STK.
  • Return value is:

= True if successfully submitted.

= False if not.

 

SubMenuDisplay(SubMenuName As String, SubMenuList As String) As Boolean

  • To get sub menu from STK. If return value is true, then the following values are retrieved:
    • SubMenuName
    • SubMenuList
  • Call this function only if STKStatus = STKSubMenu

 

SubMenuSelect(ByVal ItemSelect As Integer) As Boolean

  • To select an item in sub menu of STK.
  • Return value is:

= True if successfully submitted.

= False if not

 

InputRequestDisplay() As String

  • To display the request by STK for user input.
  • Call this function only if STKStatus = STKRequestInput

 

InputSubmit(ByVal UserInputSubmit As String) As Boolean

  • To submit user input to STK. The input can be alphanumeric or “OK”.
  • Use this only after calling InputRequestDisplay().
  • Return value is:

= TRUE if the submission is successful.

= FALSE if not.

 

ResponseDisplay() As String

  • To display STK response after user has successfully submitted an input.
  • Call this function only if STKStatus = STKResponse

 

SMSSentDisplay() As String

  • To display the outgoing SMS sent by STK.
  • Call this function only if STKStatus = STKSMSSent

 

STKStatusGet() as STKStatus

  • To get the status of STK.
  • Return values is an integer representing status. The description of each status is as per STKStatus describe below:
    • STKMainMenu = 0 (STK has a main menu to show to user)
    • STKResponse = 1 (STK has a response to user’s input)
    • STKInputRequest = 3 (STK has a request to user for input)
    • STKSubMenu = 6 (STK has a sub menu to show to user)
    • STKSMSSent = 9 (STK has sent out a SMS)
    • STKTimeOut = 98 (STK time out)
    • STKSessionEnd = 99 (STK session ends)
    • STKUnknown = 100 (Unknown status)

SAMPLE CODE

Please refer to the CD for VB sample code that uses STK API.

 

DEPLOYMENT

When you want to deploy your STK application on another PC, you need to run the set-up file (setup.exe) for MobitekSTK6.dll which is located in the CD folder.

 

SUPPORT

Support shall be in the form of e-mail support, and response time shall be within 3 working days. All e-mail must contain the following information:

  1. Company name
  2. Invoice number (can also be obtained from the white label located at the back of the modem)
  3. Description of problem and send it to support2010@mobitek.com.my

If the STK modem is not responsive (hang), please provide these information:-

  1. Based on what observation that you conclude the modem is not responsive.
  2. What did you do before it hangs?
  3. What function / method or property did you call before it hangs?
  4. What process was it working before it hangs?
  5. Does your software have log file? If so, please include it.

 

RELEASE NOTE

VERSION 6.5

  • To debug “OK” in SMS class.
  • To remove unnecessary logging.

 

VERSION 6.4

To debug “OK” in STK.InputSubmit()

  • The menu is not submitting when it get to the end of the flow. On Android, the menus shows a message saying “sending…”, which stays on for few seconds, before presenting a confirmation box with “Ok” and “Cancel” buttons.
  • The menu fails to submit any value which starts with “Ok”. Some customers have names (first name, last name) starting with “Ok”. Example “Okie”.

 

VERSION 6.3

Bug: consecutively calling SendSMSText() will result failure, “False” value is returned due to “Response: none due to time out”. But in fact, SMS has been actually send out, therefore may result duplicate SMS sent out.

  • Bug fixed in SendSMSText() by waiting longer for 60 seconds.

Log file “MOBITEK STK API Log” is automatically created in “system32” folder

 

VERSION 6.2

Supports Java (via JACOB) by converting arguments into properties.

  • Replace “Public Function MainMenuDisplay(MainMenuName As String, MainMenuList As String) As Boolean” with “Public Function MainMenuDisplay() As Boolean”
    • the arguments are converted into properties
      • MainMenuName
      • MainMenuList
  • Replace “Public Function SubMenuDisplay(SubMenuName As String, SubMenuList As String) As Boolean” with “Public Function SubMenuDisplay() As Boolean
    • the arguments are converted into properties
      • SubMenuName
      • SubMenuList

 

VERSION 6.1

Supports GL6100

 

VERSION 6.0

USSD class upgraded, based on version 9

  • New function – USSDListen()

 

VERSION 5.0

  • New class “Modem” added
  • Class “SMS” upgraded

 

VERSION 4.0

  • This version only works with STK modem Type Q24-STK4.
  • STK API version 4 is similar to version 2, so you can re-use your process flow from version 2.
  • There are no new methods nor properties, so there is no need to re-write your code when upgrading from version 2.3 and 3.x.

 

VERSION 3.1

  • This version only works with STK modem – Wavecom Fastrack Supreme 10, Type S10-STK3. Other types of STK modem will not work.
  • Method ‘MainMenuSelect()’  improved. Previously all 1st try will get “MainMenuSelect() = False”.

 

VERSION 3.0

  • This version only works with STK modem – Wavecom Fastrack Supreme 10, Type S10-STK3. Other types of STK modem will not work.
  • There are no new method nor property in STK class.
  • Phonebook class added.
  • SMS class has a new method – “GetSignalStrength()”. Refer to the SMS API Manual for more information.
  • Method “MainMenuDisplay()” improved. Auto-reconfiguration of modem is only required when necessary. Wait for STK’s response then only display items in main menu.

 

VERSION 2.3

  • There are no new method nor property.
  • Better handling of Digi Flexi e-load that returns non-standard response.
  • Automatically re-configure the STK modem in order to send and receive SMS.
    • The response time to obtain “True” or “False” for the “MainMenuDisplay()” will be longer in version 2.3 than in 2.1 as the function will automatically re-configure the STK modem. However, the re-configuration process will occur once only.

 

UPGRADING FROM VERSION 4 TO 5

If you are upgrading from version 4 to 5, then you may need to re-write your code. The following table will guide you on methods or properties that has changed:

FAQ

Last updated on 4th of December, 2009.

Q: In the middle of my process, I want to reset/reboot the STK modem, what is the correct flow?

A: The recommended flow is – half way through your code > SIMToolKit.StopSTK() > SIMToolKit.DeactivateSTK() > Modem.Reboot() > Modem.Init() > SIMToolKit.ActivateSTK()

The wrong flow is – half way through your code > Modem.Init()

If you do so, most likely you will get “Modem.Init() = SIMError”

 

Q: Why do I receive a pop-up message – “Invalid GSM Modem connected!”?

A: You are using a STK modem that is not compatible with STK API. You must use STK modem supplied by MOBITEK System. Other types of modem do not work.

 

Q: Why do I get “SendSMS() = False” and “ReadSMS() = False” even though “Modem.Init() = 1”?

A: The correct flow is – Modem.Init() > code running STK process > SIMToolKit.DeactivateSTK() > SMS.SendSMS() or SMS.ReadSMS() > SIMToolKit.ActivateSTK() > code running STK process

The wrong flow is – Modem.Init() > code running STK process > SMS.SendSMS() or SMS.ReadSMS()

Ie. you must deactivate the STK session before sending or reading SMS, otherwise you will get “SMS.SendSMS() = False” or “SMS.ReadSMS() = False”

 

Q: Why do I always get a “Fail” whenever I call any methods or functions?

A: Because your computer’s processing speed is very, very much faster than SIM card’s processing speed, and also faster than the communication speed between STK modem and server of GSM network operator. Therefore, you software application runs faster than SIM application, and if it is too fast then your software application may jam the SIM application resulting “False” whenever you called a function.

Suggested solutions are:-

  •  Put a delay or wait in between calling of methods

e.g. MainMenuSelect() > Wait > MainMenuSelect() > Wait > STKStatusGet()

avoid – MainMenuSelect() > MainMenuSelect() > STKStatusGet()

  • Put a delay or wait between reload transaction

e.g. after you have completed a top-up for 1st customer > Wait > then process next customer

avoid – after you have completed a top-up for 1st customer > process next customer

 

Q: Why does the STK modem often hang (not responsive)?

A: Your software application may jam the STK modem. It can be caused by any one of these:-

  • 2 or more timers, each timer contains subroutine calling functions at the same time;
  • 2 or more events, each event contains subroutine calling functions at the same time;

  • 2 or more threads (asynchronous), each calling functions at the same time.

Suggested solution is to develop your software application in synchronous mode and in sequential mode.

 

Q: Can the STK API supports multiple STK modems?

A: Yes. Our STK API (ActiveX-COM) is multi-threaded. There are 2 methods:-

 

1st METHOD – multiple applications calling 1 ActiveX-COM

e.g. modem1.exe calls STKAPI.dll to control STK modem no. 1 modem2.exe calls STKAPI.dll to control STK modem no. 2,etc.

The code for modem1.exe is the same as the code in modem2.exe You do not need to rewrite your code. You use back the same code, except on the part where you specify the COM port number.

 

2nd METHOD – 1 application creating 1 thread for each STK modem; you need to use .Net Framework such as VB.Net or C# or C++.Net to develop a multi-threaded application.

e.g. modem.exe creates thread no. 1 that calls STKAPI.dll to control STK modem no. 1

modem.exe creates thread no. 2 that calls STKAPI.dll to control STK modem no. 2, etc.

 

APPENDIX 1: REFERRENCING COM IN .NET

The following article is from http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dndotnet/html/callcomcomp.asp.It describes how you can call ActiveX COM from .Net:

As a .NET developer, you also have the option of using COM components directly. At least, that’s what it looks like, although you’re programmatic ally still using a RCW to get to objects in unmanaged code. If you’re working within a Visual Basic .NET project, you can follow these steps to add a reference to a COM component:

  1. Click Project, and then click Add Reference.
  2. In the Add Reference dialogue box, click the COM tab.
  3. Select the type library you wish to use from the list and click Select, or use the Browse button to locate a component that’s not listed. The selected components will be added to the lower listview in the dialogue box.
  4. Click OK to create RCWs for the selected type libraries in your Visual Basic .NET project.

When you do this, you’ll find that Visual Basic .NET actually creates a DLL in your project’s /Bin folder, with a name derived from the original COM component name. For example, if you reference BackEnd.dll version 2.0 in this manner, Visual Basic .NET will create the RCW in the file Interop.BackEnd_2_0.dll.

APPENDIX 3: How to Decode Alpha Field Displayed in STK Menu

In countries where English is not the primary language, the STK Menu may display alphanumeric string instead of English text.

We provide VB.Net sample code to decode the alphanumeric string.The VB.Net Sample Code decodes the alphanumeric string into UCS2 and then decode the UCS2 to display the unicode characters.

The sample code is in the MOBITEK Air-Time Reload Development Kit CD.

Example, the alphanumeric string displayed by Orange STK Menu is “810E00C4E5F2EEE9E5F220F4F2E1EEF3AE “, the VB.Net sample code will decode it and convert to “Dernier trans.”. Refer image below.

APPENDIX 4: How to set-up JACOB to work in 64 bit OS

User must have JRE version 1.6 for Windows

SI/SD must know how to use JACOB version 1.14.3;

  1. Installing the JACOB
    • Unzip the file “jacob-1.14.3.zip” that is in CDMOBITEK STK API version 6-16
    • Copy these 2 files (compulsory both of them) to “SysWOW64” folder that is situated in the jacob-1.14.3:
      • jacob-1.14.3-x64.dll
      • jacob-1.14.3-x86.dll
    • It will be display in the “SysWOW64” folder
    • MOBITEK STK API version 6-17
  2. Working out on Eclipse
    • Add a new project, select “Java Project”
    • Make it “JavaSMS” in “Project Name:”
    • DONT USE THE DEFAULT “jre7” because this is not recommended and either the JRE or the compiler compliance level should be (stated on below screen captured) .MOBITEK STK API version 6-18
    • Please make sure to choose the right one in JRE part which is “Use an execution environment JRE”: JavaSE-1.6″ (Third row). Click Next
    • Go to “Libraries” tab
    • Click on “Add External JARs” button MOBITEK STK API version 6-19
    • Select the file “jacob.jar” (that was unzip from “jacob-1.14.3.zip”)MOBITEK STK API version 6-20
    • Click on “Finish” button
    • Add a new package, named it “javaSMS”
    • Add a new class, named it “javaSMSTest.java”
    • And your final outcome should be similar to figure below:MOBITEK STK API version 6-21
