    s60 widgets development

    Hi friends,

    My name is Sreedhar Ambati. I am a dotnet developer but recently started working on Windows mobile.
    I attended Nokia forums events both widgets and flashlite sessions.

    I struggled for getting started development in these areas.
    Didn't get much support especially from the speakers after the session.
    So I tried and succeeded now atleast on widgets development.
    My experience with Widgets .. a small sample application to get the feel for a new bee like me.

    Visit this: ( for installation of emulator or sdk)
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/reso...ted/index.html

    left side: Resources -> Tools and SDKs --> Symbian c++ tools -->S60 Platform SDKs for Symbian OS, for

    C++ --> See Download now button in the middle (3rd edition fp2 439 mb). By clicking on that you can

    download "s60-3.2 sdk" .After downloading click on exe.

    Then start- programs-s60 developer tools - 3rd edition fp2 sdk - emulator.

    Now emulator runs.

    We want some more ie webruntime toolkit
    For that go here: http://groups.google.co.in/group/nokia-wrt-tools-beta
    join in this group.
    On the home page of this group you can notice : http://xdawrt001.ext.nokia.com/
    and there also provides with
    username: wrt
    password: alpha.2008
    By clicking on that link u r in "http://xdawrt001.ext.nokia.com/"
    From there u can download "Tools for Widget Developers"
    In the same site U can see "Web Developer's Library" browse that :: u r in

    http://xdawrt001.ext.nokia.com/Web_D.../webIndex.html
    There from example widgets download al the 4 provided widgets "Keypad,Helloworld,Rss Reader, Travel

    Companion widgets"

    Thats it.
    Now how to use these widgets in our emulator .Explaination is given below

    change the names of the widgets that you downloaded from zip extension to .wgz extension

    I installed s60 sdk in "d:\phonesamples "
    Move the four widgets after changing their file extension to wgz to "d:\phonesamples\S60

    \devices\S60_3rd_FP2_SDK\epoc32\winscw\c\Data\Others"

    Now in emulator :
    steps:
    1. installation :
    click on menu ->organiser->file manager-> phone memory-> other ->"select the widget file ie

    helloworldwgz". select it . It prompts for installation either on phone or memory card.Select phome

    memory and it installs .

    2. Run the widget

    click on menu- installations->helloworld widget.

    Thats it

    Note: Emulator is very very slow.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. I think you'll find that you will get a lot of support here at Forum Nokia. If there are any questions on your mind just ask away!

    Hi Sreedhar, Sad to hear that you were unable to get the proper support. Well, it might be due to the larger number of audience.
    Here in discussion boards we are here to support you at the all possible ways.

    Let me know what all road bloacks you are facing. If you are planning to develop some widgets, please let me know so that we can discuss how we can move forward.

    Regards
    Gopal
