Hi everybody,

All I have is the question in the title No more, no less.
I have Samsung Note 3 and this thing looks freakishly inconvenient to me. Once I get the message (SMS), I can swipe it away after being read just in the notification drawer (the one that can be showed by dragging a finger from the top edge down). For the most occurrences this should be ok, as those messages are short enough. But swiping away doesn't mark a message as read, it just removes the notificatoin from both the notification drawer and the status bar. I can see the unread count if I run Messages app.

So the question is

Is there a way to mark a text message as read if I swipe it away in a notification drawer?

I've googled it, but didn't find anything that helped me. I thought of a kind of XPosed module for that, but no luck with my findings.
Do you know how to do that?

Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Eugene

The thing is, the notification is just displayed on the status bar, when pulling the status bar down just to read the printed content and when swiping away it doesn't actually indicate that you've read the message.

The messaging application isn't merged with the status bar, its just a notification. So in other words you haven't actually ready the "actual' message you've just taken a glimpse at it.

Also like this you've seen the book of a phone and what it looks like. But you haven't seen the content and actual things inside the box.

So nope, I don't think so? If there is then this feature will be interesting as to how it'll work.

Do you mean there is no direct association between the message and the notification that the Messages app has sent to a system? I mean, is it just impossible to identify which message should be touched in a database if we have a respective notification? At least, unless Messages will introduce a way to carry this out...

Its not impossible, and I mean that the system and messaging are two different components. The system just operates everything but the message is produced with an application. Thus it does not merge with the system. But the notifications code is referred to the system so the system knows when there is a message so it'll display the notification, but when you swipe it off, it doesn't change the messaging state all the messages is stored in the application. Which is a completely different component(object).
