This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.


The DOM MozSmsSegmentInfo interface provides information about how a string of text will be automatically split into segments. Each segment represents a single SMS of a multi-part SMS message.

The MozSmsSegmentInfo interface cannot be instantiated directly; use the MozMobileMessageManager.getSegmentInfoForText() method to get such an object.


MozSmsSegmentInfo.segments Read only
The number of total segments for the input string.
MozSmsSegmentInfo.charsPerSegment Read only
The number of characters available per segment.
MozSmsSegmentInfo.charsAvailableInLastSegment Read only
The maximum number of available characters in the last segment.


This is a non standard implementation, but it is discussed at W3C as part of the System Application Working Group.
