    WRT with Paypal

    How would I use PayPal with a Web Run Time widget?

    Ideally I would like to keep the user experience within the widget rather than launching the browser to go to Paypal.

    I've used PayPal IPN in the past but this would require that the user visit the PayPal web site to make payment then return to my web site. I dont think this would be possible with a widget without moving the user from the widget to the web browser.

    Is it possible to load an online web page within the widget, perhaps using an iframe?

    You could try taking a look at PayPal APIs:

    Yes it's possible to load an online web page within the widget.
    A simple link <a href="http://www.forum.nokia.com"> forum nokia</a> within your widget will load the page inside the widget instead of launching it from the S60 browser. I am not sure but then it might be possible to get back to your widget's view. For instance by assigning to the right softkey the main function in charge of displaying your widget.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Probably the best solution is to use PayPal pro as a full ecommerce solution rather than the basic "go to PayPal web site for payment and redirect to web site for file download.

    I was not aware that you could load a web page within the widget, that would also be a simple solution.
