Suggested Solution no. 1  We suggest a work around:-

  • noted down all the values of the menu item that matches the menu in your mobile phone screen, refer table below
  • when you call functions of MOBITEK STK API, you only need to pass the value of the menu item and not the text of menu item as the argument/parameter

Option 131
Dernier trans 1 Correct -> SubMenuSelect(1)
Wrong ->  SubMenuSelect(Dernier trans)
Solde 2 SubMenuSelect(2)
Rapport jour. 3 SubMenuSelect(3)
Suggested Solution no. 2 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.
