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)
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
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
There from example widgets download al the 4 provided widgets "Keypad,Helloworld,Rss Reader, Travel
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
Now in emulator :
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.
Note: Emulator is very very slow.
Thanks & Regards,
