    Buttons and Icons on idle screen

    Hi,

    How to create the button row like the one on phone's idle screen? (the contacts, Message, calender etc buttons )

    Also, are those icons usable from application?

    Thanks

    I doubt that it would be a standard control, they are just images rendered next to each other and a "cursor" is added to them.
    Although using them may not be entirelly legal, you can certainly find application icons in epoc32\data\z\resource\apps and epoc32\release\winscw\udeb\z\resource\apps, most of them are there in both .mbm and .mif format. They are probably there (in z:\resource\apps) in the devices too (at least in .mif format - I would not be sure about .mbm-s).

    Thanks Wiz, do you think it might be CAknGrid?

    Actually it can be, however the tooltips are suspicious to me.

    Good observation Wiz. Btw, do you see legal issue in using those icons if app is for nokia phone? I saw few apps reusing those icons.

    Will anyone from Nokia comments?

    I think it all depends on how and why you use them but I'm sure you will have no problem using them to create shortcuts to the respective applications.
