Sending/Recieving Emoticons


I want to send an emoticon to a user, do I need to use sendMessage or something else? I understand that sendMessage will only send text?

Has anyone done emoticons with Smack???can someone show me how I can start this?



You can send the required emot as text within you message using a determined pattern. eg. {:-)}

Ensure that the images are available at the receiving end, search the message and replace it with the corresponding images before displaying it.

Or if you want to send the images on the messages itself, it is possible using Smack’'s ability to carry Java Objects.
