SmsDevice.CalculateLength | calculateLength method

Estimates the transmitted message length of the specified text message. The estimate can be useful to clients who want to give an indication of how many messages will be sent on the network to carry the text of the full message.

Note  This functionality is only available to mobile operator apps and Windows Store apps given privileged access by mobile network operators, mobile broadband adapter IHV, or OEM. For more information, see Mobile Broadband: Windows Store device apps.

Note  Note that this class and its methods are supported for the maintenance of legacy desktop apps that used it in earlier versions of Windows; and if you do use this class, you must specify the Windows.Devices.Sms.LegacySmsApiContract in your app's manifest. Do not use this class if you are developing new apps for Windows 10. Instead, use the members of this namespace that do not require the Windows.Devices.Sms.LegacySmsApiContract.
