    Drawing on top of video playback

    Hi all
    I'm in the middle of developing an application where I would like to draw a simple cross hair on the screen over the playback of the primary camera for a Nokia N80 (S60 platform). The playback occurs on a canvas object but I can't figure out how to set the Graphics object(the cross hairs) at a higher level on the canvas than the video playback.

    using the standard line below and I'm drawing to the canvas object.
    vidCon.initDisplayMode(vidCon.USE_DIRECT_VIDEO, canvas)

    Do I have to use a layer manager and just create the crosshairs as a Sprite object?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    It seems that there is a method which allow you to draw something over the camera, but I'm not sure about it.It's just an advice.

    Best regards

    You need to take separate snapshots from the camera, draw those images on the screen and draw the crosshair on top of the image.
    In the future you could use OverlayControl from AMMS API (JSR-234), but that is not available on S60 3rd Edition devices.
