EmailSend Application in iPhone

Aasim Naseem 0

Hello Everyone, hope all is good around you;

Here is my another tutorial for iOS application; I’m composing a series of tutorial on different topics; You can find rest of the post under N-FAQ and iOS category;

So here w go; In this application we will see how to Email Send in iPhone. So let see how it will worked.

Step 1: Open the Xcode, Create a new project using View Base application. Give the application “EmailSend”.

Step 2: Xcode automatically creates the directory structure and adds essential frameworks to it. You can explore the directory structure to check out the content of the directory.

Step 3: Expand classes and notice Interface Builder created the ViewController class for you. Expand Resources and notice the template generated a separate nib, EmailSendViewController.xib for the EmailSend application.

Step 4: We need to add MessageUI.framework in the application.

Step 5: Open the EmailSendViewController.h file and make the following changes:

[sourcecode language=”objc”]
#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import <MessageUI/MessageUI.h>
@interface EmailSendViewController : UIViewController
– (IBAction)SendMail:(id)sender;

Step 6: Double click the EmailSendViewController.xib file and open it to the interface Builder. Drag the round rect button from the library and place it to the View window. Now select the button and bring up Connection Inspector and connect Touch Up Inside to the File’s Owner icon and select SendMail: method. Now Save the .xib file, close it and go back to the Xcode.

Step 7: Open the AlertViewViewController.m file and make the following changes:

[sourcecode language=”objc”]

#import "EmailSendViewController.h"
@implementation EmailSendViewController
– (void)dealloc
[super dealloc];
– (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning
// Releases the view if it doesn’t have a superview.
[super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
// Release any cached data, images, etc that aren’t in use.
#pragma mark – View lifecycle
// Implement viewDidLoad to do additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
– (void)viewDidLoad
[super viewDidLoad];
– (void)viewDidUnload
[super viewDidUnload];
// Release any retained subviews of the main view.
// e.g. self.myOutlet = nil;
// Return YES for supported orientations
return (interfaceOrientation == UIInterfaceOrientationPortrait);
– (IBAction)SendMail:(id)sender
if ([MFMailComposeViewController canSendMail])
MFMailComposeViewController *mailer = [[MFMailComposeViewController alloc] init];
mailer.mailComposeDelegate = self;
[mailer setSubject:@"A Message from iPhone"];
NSArray *toRecipients = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"", @"", nil];
[mailer setToRecipients:toRecipients];
NSString *emailBody = @"Have you Nice Day";
[mailer setMessageBody:emailBody isHTML:NO];
// only for iPad
// mailer.modalPresentationStyle = UIModalPresentationPageSheet;
[self presentModalViewController:mailer animated:YES];
[mailer release];
UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle:@"Failure"
message:@"Your device doesn’t support the composer sheet"
otherButtonTitles: nil];
[alert show];
[alert release];
#pragma mark – MFMailComposeController delegate
– (void)mailComposeController:(MFMailComposeViewController*)controller didFinishWithResult:
(MFMailComposeResult)result error:(NSError*)error
switch (result)
case MFMailComposeResultCancelled:
NSLog(@"Mail cancelled");
case MFMailComposeResultSaved:
NSLog(@"Mail saved");
case MFMailComposeResultSent:
NSLog(@"Mail send");
case MFMailComposeResultFailed:
NSLog(@"Mail failed");
NSLog(@"Mail not sent");
[self dismissModalViewControllerAnimated:YES];


Step 8: Now Compile and run the application on the Simulator.

Thats all; If you found anything confusing, do let me know or comment here;
