    Button control

    In the application I need to have few clickable buttons, similar as calculator operation buttons(+,-,=). What is the preferable option to develop such controls in S60? I could not find a standard control "button", which I could put at required place on screen. Should I create custom control button with a bitmap in it or is there more elegant way?

    Thanks.

    The S60 UI Style Guide does not leave any room for using buttons on a S60 application. However, if you really need them, have a look at the Eikon-inherited Buttons API (CEikButtonBase & co.)

    Right, but even built-in applications like Calculator, Voice Recorder don't follow this "UI Style Guide" and use the command buttons :)
